    Match 3 is up! This one is focused on plot. Match 1 will end in an hour.

    Ao no Kiseki vs. Shin Megami Tensei IV

    I spaced putting up the next round last night, so you get two today!

    Round 1 Match 4: Star Ocean The Second Story vs. Xenoblade Chronicles X

    Round 1 Match 5 : Final Fantasy IX vs. Final Fantasy Tactics

    Are the categories going to be consistent between rounds or what? Like will Ys still be rate on battle system next time or could it be something completely different? Also, your terminology of "round" and "match," seems to have changed as you've been doing this.

    It will be something different. I use an RNG app to pick the category for the round. It was just weird luck that we've already gotten repeats. If I get either music or story for the next one, I'll re-roll just for the sake of variety.

    Looking at the overall round 1 pairings, and seeing how voting is going. This first round is going to see some major upsets unless the category element saves the sacred cows.

    Well, most of the "sacred cows" that I can think of (not sure I know every one here) are pretty good in all categories. So unless you have them up against a phenom in a particular category, I don't generally see them losing to a dark horse.

    It really comes down who is voting. I feel Match 4 would have been a more even fight if the category was gameplay since that is SO2's strong point, but on the flip side, looking at the people who voted so far in that category, I think only two of them have actually played SO2, so even that wouldn't have saved it. That's kind of the issue here as well. A lot of "old school" titles that were nominated came from three people, and of those three, only one of them is actually voting.

    My vote is going to be the tie breaker, so I'm abstaining for the most part, though I only see a handful of entries in the first round may end in a tie.

    I just haven't played either game. However, if it were gameplay I would have voted for SO2, because I have played part of a Xenoblade game and know it's gameplay enough to know I detest it. Meanwhile I'm under the impression that SO2 gameplay is pretty similar to the early Tales games, which I like.

    Can't speak for others of course but yeah even with my absolute favorite games, I can think of elements where other games have the upper hand. If match 3 had been gameplay I'd have absolutely voted SMT4 for example

    I'm not saying I think my absolute favorite games are the best in every category. I'm saying I think they're all good enough in each category that it wouldn't be just any game to unseat them. It would have to be a game that's top of its class in that category, which with random category selection seems like it won't happen too often.

    Match 6 and 7 are up. I'm going to double these up cause Round 1 will take forever otherwise.

    Match 6: Hyperdimenion Neptunia Victory vs. Xenoblade Chronicles 2

    Match 7: Final Fantasy Tactics Advance vs. The World Ends with You

    Don't worry, I've got thirty more where they came from. You're bound to have at least five you can actually vote for.
