The greatest sports video game of all time: The Sweet 16

New, 3 comments

We’ve made it through the first round of voting. Now it’s time to see what happens in the sweet sixteen.

On Friday I introduced the most important bracket known to mankind: The Greatest Sports Video Game of All Time bracket.

We’ve made it through the first round of voting and you can see the results in the bracket below:

Obviously the biggest surprise has been the Pro Division in which not a single top seed won. Damn. I’m most impressed in #7 ranked Madden 2005 pulling off the upset against #2 MVP Baseball 2005. I thought we’d see at least one top seed hold but that did not come true.

Now comes the Sweet Sixteen with a lot of tough matchups (looking at you NBA Jam vs NFL Blitz or Mario Kart vs Super Smash). As like the last round, I have polls posted below and we’ll also be polling on Twitter (@Faketeams). I add up both to see what game advanced, so go vote on BOTH platforms because we’re not checking! Rig the vote am I right!?

Polls will be open for 48 hours so get them votes in!
