Also, Breath of the Wild is actually doing better now than it did when this poll was held shortly after its release (mostly at MM's and WW's expense), which is a good sign for its long-term strength.


Yeah I agree. Which is why for me as of right now it’s #1 for GOTD. Smash is clearly #2. But smash’s popularity will wane as time goes on and BOTW won’t. Plus 1v1 Zelda just beats out nintendo comp.

And I agree with WW to an extent but I think the HD rerelease gave it more of a boost. WW is a lot stronger now than it was before while games like TP are weaker.

Well, not always. Brawl did beat TP in GOTD, but I would favor BOTW now. I think it's generally more beloved, and I think Smash overall isn't as popular as it was back then (largely due to the immense hype train Brawl generated).

At least it seems to prove that it didn't overperform in 2017 when it was less than 3 months due to being the newest game at the time. If anything, it's actually gotten stronger because the playrate would be higher now.

Ya go my Castlevania.

A little surprised to see Suikoden beating Silent Hill, though.

Hardly a surprise on GameFAQs.
Advokaiser picked Cloud in Guru and rained on my bracket.
At least I finished 20th overall!

I'd be more surprised that Yugioh is beating Silent Hill
A refusal of praise is a desire to be praised twice.

Metal Gear actually lost to Castlevania in yesterday's poll. Hard to say how much of it was Castlevania actually getting stronger since 2003 and how much of it was Metal Gear simply dropping off.

In the 2003 version of this poll, Metal Gear won pretty easily over Castlevania and that was before MGS3 came out.

Metal Gear is dead and Castlevania has the Netflix boost. That kind of combination of circumstances is what was necessary to make such a drastic change in GameFAQs hierarchy.

Makes me wonder how close Alucard could get to Snake these days. (If only the xstats website had data from recent contests!)
