First of all here's the results from Part 1:

Jagged Alliance 2 (9 votes) - City of Heroes (3 votes)
Rome: Total War (8) - Starflight 2 (1)
Europa Universalis 2 (2) - Dungeon Master (7)
Syndicate (5) - Heroes of Might and Magic 2 (7)
Wing Commander 3 (8) - Mission Force: Cyberstorm (3)
Kohan: Immortal Sovereigns (9) - Final Fantasy XI (1)
Total Annihilation (10) - Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield (0)
Ultima VII (11) - Sanitarium (0)
Thief: The Dark Project (11) - Conquest of Camelot (2)
Sam & Max Hit the Road (8) - Crimson Skies (3)
Doom (14) - Civilization 3 (4)
Half-Life (15) - Worms World Party (1) - Mechwarrior 2 (2)
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War (4) - Frontier: Elite 2 (5)
Age of Wonders 2 (8) - Lands of Lore (4)
Wing Commander (7) - Dungeon Keeper (7)
Warcraft II (13) - Heroes of Might and Magic (3)
The Secret of Monkey Island 2 (8) - Railroad Tycoon (6)
Icewind Dale (4) - Warcraft III (9)
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (15) - Tomb Raider (3)
Quake 2 (7) - The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall (8)
Doom 2 (6) - Rise of Nations (8)
Quake 3 (7) - Space Quest (5)
Civilization (11) - Call of Duty (3) - Gothic (4)
Colonization (5) - Pharaoh (6)
Outlaws (5) - Longbow 2 (2)
Darklords (2) - Panzer General (4)
Planescape: Torment (12) - Ultima IV (5)
Tribes (4) - Diablo (13)
Planet's Edge (2) - No One Lives Forever (9)
Magic Carpet (4) - Battlefield 1942 (5)
Ace of the Pacific (2) - Ultima Underworld (8)
Falcon 4.0 (2) - Might and Magic 6 (7)

The only tie is between Wing Commander and Dungeon Keeper, each with 7 votes.  Dungeon Keeper held the lead until Wing Commander made a late comeback to tie.  Anyone who did not vote for one of these two games can cast a vote with this ballot (I will check to see if you voted earlier). If there is still a tie, then I will do a coin toss.  All other games from Part 1 are closed to voting.


Here's Part 2 of Round 1.  Remember, if there is no number assume that it is the first game in a series (if that game is part of a series).  And in the three-way matchups vote for only 1.

That Ultima V/Jedi Knight/Starcraft one is just brutal.  That's like Mac versus Connors in the second round at Wimbledon or something.  With Borg crashing the party.  :shock:

I had to put a vote for Mail Order Monsters since it's gonna get killed anyway.   :wink:

Jesus, I picked alot of "2"s.

Some of these choices are whack.  How can you pit Master of Orion against MAD TV with a straight face, or Master of Magic against Mail Order Monsters without laughing your ass off?

Best faceoff:  Everquest vs. Civilization 2.  Took me a long time to finally settle on my choice.

"Some of these choices are whack. How can you pit Master of Orion against MAD TV with a straight face, or Master of Magic against Mail Order Monsters without laughing your ass off?"

I admit that some of the choices were strange, but I'm not going to discriminate.  If a game was nominated, I put it in.  It's not my fault if it gets completely destroyed.  Just wait until the later rounds, when some of the oddballs are out, and a lot of choices will be as tough or tougher than Everquest vs. Civilization 2.  Some of the potential finalists: Half-Life vs. Deus Ex or Starcraft vs. Warcraft II or Morrowind vs. Baldur's Gate 2.  Just you wait, the tough stuff is yet to come.

It seems to me that in the early rounds the seedings should be more uneven.  I mean, Starcraft vs. Jedi Knight vs. Ultima V is brutal.  No matter what happens two all time classics are going to be instantly eliminated in the first round.

Also, Mail Order Monsters was a pretty damn cool game.  I know I know, Master of Magic is the greatest game in the history of the universe and all who say otherwise are complete morons who are not worthy to traverse the earth, but the other MoM was remarkably ahead of its time.  Gameplay doesn't hold up but I give it points for being a sort of trailblazer (too bad there was practically no internet multiplayer back in 1985).

Some of the choices are a bit silly:

"Need for Speed: Porsche Edition vs. Wizardry"

 :shock: Is there really any basis here for comparison.  But oh well...

I thought this was CSL's tourney. I would have voted for Wing Commander over Dungeon Keeper, so there wouldn't have been a tie there.

I set up the brackets in semi-random fashion.  I took the first nominee against the last and put it on one side then the 2nd against the 2nd to last on the other side an so on.  Making it truly random was more effort than I felt like putting in.  Then since there were more than 128 games, I put the extras in wherever I happened to point to, with 4 on the left and 3 on the right, each fairly evenly distributed in the vertical sense.

The time when a game gets eliminated doesn't necesarily indicate it's quality.  Some games will get hard matchups and lose in the first round and other, slightly lower quality games will get easy matchups and move on.  For example, Dungeon Keeper, an excellent game that was innovative appears like it will lose to Wing Commander.  But, Outlaws, a game I've never even heard of before, beat Longbow 2, which only got 2 votes.  But that's the way the brackets turned out.

Round 1 Part 1 was in the original thread.  I started it late at night and in my sleepy state never considered making a new thread until someone suggested it.  That's why I've done that for this round and all future rounds.  No, I'm not CSL.  I decided to take over this thing after CSL abandoned it and apparently this site as well, and since no one else was stepping up.

Once again - too many hard decisions (for instance, EQ vs. Civ 2)  Perhaps the match-ups in the next round could be weighted by the numbers of votes cast?

Looks like I came to the party late for round 1, so here goes round 2:

Freespace 2
ABSTAIN
Unreal Tournament 2004
Crusader: No Remorse  (not a fair matching at all)
Unreal Tournament
The Longest Journey
Warlords
System Shock 2
Outcast
Diablo 2
SWAT 3
Quake
Star Wars: X-wing
Dungeon Keeper 2
Grim Fandango
Wizardry
Wizardry 8
ABSTAIN
Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2
System Shock
Command & Conquer Red Alert 2
Ghost Recon
Knights of the Old Republic
Combat Mission: Beyond Overlord
Gabriel Knight 2
Everquest
Deus Ex
Mafia
ABSTAIN
ABSTAIN
ABSTAIN
Operation Flashpoint

Out of the list, I put in the most time with EVERQUEST, but enjoyed the following games much more:
Crusader No Remorse
SWAT 3
System Shock 2
Grim Fandango

I thought I was a pretty experienced gamer, and in a lot of those pairs I've played one of the games, but only seldom have I played both.  I'm ashamed.    So much passing...  frown   Also, Pirates! vs. KotOR was pure evil.

Quote from: "Scuba-V"


Here are my picks:

Warzone 2100 (probably the only vote for this great game)

Hey man I loved that game.  Had sessions that were HOURS long playing multiplayer.   But it was against freepspace 2... tough call for me.  Could've gone either way.. I shoulda' abstained...  *sob*
