Video Game draft - Final Four!

Welcome to round two of the Video Game Draft Tournament! 16 DVDTalkers drafted 10 console or portable video games. Now it is up you, the fine gamers of DVDTalk, to vote on which player has drafted the best collection.

Players have been randomly paired up by means of a random number generator and by random number generator I mean asking someone to pick a number 1-3 to match up with the winner of pair 4. To vote reply to this post telling me who you think has the best lineup. Your vote will not count unless you vote on every pair! Your vote will not count if you edit the post where you vote!

Players in the game are encouraged to vote. Optionally, they are also allowed to post to this thread telling everybody why they think you should vote for their collection.

So, let the voting begin! Voting ends on Wednesday, November 16th, at the exact time of the timestamp of this post. Match-ups will be listed in the first reply to this post.

Good luck to all the participants!

No offense to these final competitors, but when i look at some of the games in the remaining collections, I am baffled as to how i lost in the first fucking round of this thing.

cleaver - swap out OOT for anything on ryuryu2949's list and this would've been pretty much a dead heat
msdmoney - I've only played 2 games on DJ's list, so msdmoney gets my vote pretty much by default

When I get knocked out in almost any draft it boggles my mind that the majority didn't like, for example, the Simpsons over Arrested Development, Cheers over Prison Break (that one really fucked with my head), Van Morrison over James, Rushmore over Life Aquatic, but hey, different strokes for different folks.

2 GAMES ONLY! That is quite puzzling, Burnout, Mike Typson and Halo2 and MUSTS for anyone. Streets of Rage? Mario Kart....I can see the Sega CD games getting passed over....great little system (for about a minute). GTA for PSP is also a half-assed pick too...but the rest. Mutant League sports were GREAT.

I owned Punch Out and Mario Kart back in the day. I haven't owned a PSP, XBox or any Sega systems, which knocks out a good chunk of your games. Not saying they aren't great games, I just haven't played them. On the other hand, I've owned every Nintendo and Sony console, so I'm more likely to vote for lists containing great games on these systems.

Though it pains me as we had a lot of fun with Mutant League Football & Hockey back in the day. Those and General Chaos were great party Genesis games.

No question for either...

ryuryu has Goldeneye which is the greatest multplayer game in the history of gaming and has NHL 94 for the Sega Genesis... NHL 94!!!!!

DJ has Halo 2, Super Mario Kart, and Mutant League Football... This is a trifecta of fun...
