Finals of the N.I.T. bracket of the Video Game Draft Tournament!

Welcome to the finals of the N.I.T. bracket of the Video Game Draft Tournament! 16 DVDTalkers drafted 10 console or portable video games.
The Semi-finals have been completed.
Now it is up you, the fine gamers of DVDTalk, to vote on which player has drafted the best collection in this the N.I.T. bracket.

To vote simply post in this thread telling me who you think has the best lineup. 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. I will be giving a “prize” to the winner of this tournament.

So, let the voting begin! Voting ends on Monday, January 5th, at the exact time of the timestamp of this post. Match-ups will be listed in post #2.

Good luck to all the participants!

I was going to take your suggestion and put you in the finals of the regular tournament, but not now.

You could have made it easier on yourself by making this a poll.

True, but then the thread would be more likely to fall down the page.

Both lists have some really solid titles.

I have to go with cruzness based on the games I have played and know about.

Both look like good lists, and it was really close decision.
