Alright, as the name says, I'm doing to do this tournament style. 10 games per day for 6 days. Day 7, the 10 most voted games will go head to head. This thread is just so I can generate a poll without disrupting the answers of the previous rounds. So please send any discussion over here

The games were compiled by a combination of the previously mentioned thread, and I also added in games that either sold well or were critically acclaimed. I did not choose which games go up against each other, I just entered them into a random list generator. So I take ownership of the games selected but not the order. Alternatively, if I have made any errors with the selection of games, please let me know and I will look into it. I also chose to list all of the games here just in case there were errors, so don't be shy to call them out or let me know if something shouldn't be in this list.

Awakening on this list.
Fantasy Life was one I felt was interesting.
Link Between Worlds was interesting, but I wouldn’t say it’s anything beyond what was expected. I preferred the original Link to the Past because the pacing was a lot better, but the openness of this one was refreshing.

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

I did really enjoy Sticker Star, but it might be a bit because I did not like Super Paper Mario and I was just happy to not get another one of that style of game.

Ill give it to A Link Between Worlds. Just deserves it more I think.

Fire Emblem Awakening easily.

First FE game and I just loved it entirely.

Kirby Planet Robobot would be my second.

Fire Emblem Awakening, one of my all-time faves.
Smash 4 and Link Between Worlds are great too.

Kirby Planet Robobot for me.

Difficult one.

Majora's Mask is the best game here, without a doubt. But it's a remake, and frankly one that, beside the graphical improvement obviously, made the game worse. A Link Between Worlds is fun, but wasn't really that special. Luigi's Mansion 2 is favourite Luigi's Mansion game. I loved the smaller, but different 'mansions', and the game probably has the best 3D effect of any 3DS game.

I think I'll vote for Luigi's Mansion 2.

It do be A Link Between Worlds.

The poll results just shows how many people missed on the best 2D Kirby(or even the whole franchise really).

Planet Robobot tops the list easily.
