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.

Metroid Samus Returns for this one. Shantae and NSMB2 are great as well though.

Fire Emblem Fates

Tough choice between Fire Emblem Fates and Pokemon Moon for me, but I ultimately went with Fire Emblem.

You forgot A Link Between Worlds.

But for this day I'd say Samus Returns.

HOW? That's the game I'm hoping to win this tournament. It was the first game that I wrote the name out for. I guess I accidentally cut it when I put it in the random generator. I'll replace Attack of the Friday Monsters with it since it's a bit more obscure than the rest of the games. I feel a bit bad for taking out someone's pick. 

Samus Returns for this one.

Didnt think many other people cared for Samus Returns. Nice to see I was wrong:)

It was the swan song of the 3DS in my opinion

What about pilot wings resort? I really enjoyed the challenges and vivid colors of that game. The pilot wings series is a true gem. 

Samus Returns, though I didn’t get a chance to play it. I was enjoying Another Metroid Remake 2 at the time. Hopefully I will get to check it out still.
