Do you ever wonder how long a decade is? Why we don't split this contest up by genre? Why there are only 4 games in the entire bracket and why is one of them Monster Hunter World? WHERE'S MINECRAFT?

Welcome to your personal hell. Join me as we travel through the depths of Reddit (and sometimes other sites!) to find failed rallies, moderately successful rallies, and, most importantly, r/futanari rallies.

Oh, and I still post things from the Discord and the Board itself. Help me do that! I can't be everywhere at once. I'm "essential" so I am working until I die.

that guy frequents various drug related subreddits such as r/weed, r/heroin and r/benzodiazepines so yeah he's probably a bit unstable.

I am always on pins and needles waiting to see who wins the GOTY Award for Best Children's Game.

Also, trash garbage is far and away my favorite type of garbage.

It's so weird to still see people dismissing Nintendo stuff as "the dumb kiddie game" unironically. I kinda naively thought people moved on from that.

Fun with numbers:

If you set Three Houses = Red Dead Redemption 2015 and assume that Xenoblade didn't SFF it, 2020 Xenoblade gets about 61% on 2015 Xenoblade.

Assuming a constant MGS5, 2020 Dark Souls gets about 59% on 2015 Dark Souls.

If you account for the rally and assume Bloodborne gets about 55% on Awakening this year, then 2020 Bloodborne gets about 58.5% on 2015 Bloodborne.

The Last of Us, despite poor Round 1/2 showings, did slightly better against Arkham City than 2015 projections, implying it hasn't dropped in strength.

I must say, reddit's complete inability to comprehend a simple single elimination bracket system, and their insistence that all decades have to be based on arbitrarily starting in the year 1AD has been the highlight of the contest.

What is it about that site that makes the users such pedantic assholes?

I will never forget when BGE Champion Cory in the House carved a swath of salty buttdevastation across this board and buttliquidated the last restaints of my bracket. It was almost as bad as a leddit raid!




Before this contest loses all credibility, Allen needs to investigate the multiple accounts and what not!

I always found it weird that outsiders think most of these results are a "GameFAQs only" thing. Outside of a few close matches flipping the only major differences I see are games like Fortnite or Dota 2 having strength (and even then it depends on the site) and Uncharted 4 defeating Mario Kart 8.

The biggest difference would be Division 4 with Persona 4 losing to Red Dead Redemption and Overwatch defeating Xenoblade and Three Houses.

A lot of people attack GameFAQs for not representing the "universal" gaming opinion but truth is that whatever community they belong to probably doesn't represent it either.

The only way to make a contest where the global opinion was represented would be to have samples from every gaming community out there, and also from gamers who don't go to the internet to talk about them.

I assume Animal Crossing would be winning the contest in that case.

That's also why rallies are a poor way to "punish gameFAQs for being niche", because it just replaces one niche for another.

I realize it's Cinco and a cute day to run this, but I'm against inside-Contest-time polls that potentially give away results of live entrants.

That has me feeling more safe about Witcher, as I think it would take a fellow JRPG to sap much strength away from Persona. Ultimately though a result like this makes me wonder...

What the FLIP happened to Tropical Freeze yo?!
