Yesterday's championship match was one for the ages. After mowing down the competion to get here, Smash Ultimate soon had its hands full; not only did God of War come here to win, but it led over Smash on two separate occasions.

The second half of the day would favor Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and it would be enough to hang on with a 25-19 finish to be voted Board 8's Best Game of 2018! Kratos loses, but he goes down fighting and we wouldn't expect anything less from him.

Official Bracket
http://www.bracketmaker.com/tmenu.cfm?1&tid=471157&tclass=

2018 Ultimate Loser: Smash > GoW > Spiderman > Octopath > Detroit > Deltarune > Jimmy and the Pulsating Mass

My thoughts: God of War was my personal choice for GotY, but there's zero shame in losing to my #2 pick. Both games deserved to be here.

Thanks to all those who voted!

2017 easy, although 2018 would make a good case if DQXI made it over GoW

Rocket League might be my favorite game on the list, but I voted for Portal 2/UC3.

My favorite overall result is Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time winning in 2004 I believe. That is so not a typical B8 game, and combined with my affinity toward that game, it was a pretty memorable result to me.

why am i surprised that i like almost all the games on this list?

i guess i expected it to be more skewed towards nintendo and jrpgs. There's a little bit of that, but most years let the best games win

You did indeed stab me in the back. However, you are only level one, whilst I am level 50. That means I should remain uninjured.

Not to mention Square going 0-7 in the finals. Possibly 1 vote away from going 0-8, but Automata lost to Mario Odyssey in the semifinals last year

Other noteworthy bits since KCF mentioned 2003, there were only 2 tournaments where none of the final 4 were Nintendo or Square.

2003 - Persia, KOTOR, Beyond Good and Evil, Disgaea
2009 - Uncharted 2, Arkham Asylum, Dragon Age, and Resident Evil 5

Man, I forgot that Beyond Good & Evil made the Final Four. 2003 could very well be my favorite Final Four for Sands of Time and BG&E alone. I obviously have no idea what the others were aside from the three explicitly mentioned in this topic.

Yeah, this. That and getting 15 votes to GTA5's 11.

GTA does decent in most of these, but outside Vice City, it'll never reach the semis agsin.

GTA2 - Round 2 loss to Spyro 2
III - Round 3 loss to Conker's Bad Fur Day
Vice City - Semifinal loss to Metroid Prime
San Andreas - Round 3 loss to Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal
IV - Round 4 loss to Metal Gear Solid IV

Several of these GOTYs are the same, so I'm not sure what the point is.
