A = Strongest Character
B = Character Weaker than A
C = Character Weaker than B
To figure out a character's Xsts Percentage ---> [(CvB)(BvA)]/50 = CvA
To compare how C would do against B ---> [(CvA)/(BvA)]*50 = CvB
To figure out how B would do against A ---> [(CvA)/(CvB)]*50 = BvA

Oh right, Game of the Year, forgot all about it.

Way to go Allen, removing RE2 so GameFAQs favorite Zelda can get a spot in the final poll.
Advokaiser picked Cloud in Guru and rained on my bracket.
At least I finished 20th overall!

Three Houses would have still been in there with or without RE2 in this poll. Ironically, RE2's omission here probably assures its win in the final GotY poll thanks to Link's Awakening leeching Three Houses.

AFAIK it's been selling pretty well. Hopefully this means Squeenix will localize all of the spinoffs from now on!

Or better yet, localize DQM1+2 and Joker 3 now. I don't care if the 3DS is dead!
Congrats to Advokaiser for winning the CBX Guru Challenge!

RE2 isn't a remake like most of these. This more of a reimagining with compeltely new gamepaly structure

And having Zelda in the final poll just makes Fire Emblem weaker.

RE2 will clean house regardless though.

If KH3 was good this year, it would have won. But the game sucked.

Is it? I was expecting better

When DQXI comes up in polls on the Switch Board. IT decimates every game even FE.

LA seems to be getting a s*** ton of "casual" votes from people who probably didn't even play it.

Either way Its a bit sad because Luigis mansion 3 deserves to be represented FAR more than what is lazy Poor Remake in LA.

It's unlikely that LA would have benefited from this in the Switch poll which is more top heavy than the games in this poll. When you factor in the presence of Luigi's Mansion 3, Pokemon, and Super Mario Maker 2, there's far less reason to vote for LA if you haven't played the game because it's more likely you have played one of the other games in the Switch poll.

LA might actually be stronger than the Switch poll would suggest based on the early vote totals in today's poll. This poll has 905 votes at the end of the first hour. For comparison, the Switch poll had 931 votes at the end of the first hour and finished with 9599 votes. Despite the lack of RE2, today's poll is on track for about 9000 to 9400 votes (only slightly less than the Switch poll) while outperforming the PS4 poll by at least 500 votes or more. This poll breaking 9000 votes would imply LA is doing an excellent job at drawing in votes despite not having RE2 in the poll and this poll being less top heavy than the Switch poll. If that's the case here, LA could have more strength than expected.
