The greatest sports video game of all time: The Elite 8

We keep narrowing the playing field. We’re down to the Elite 8.

Welcome back to the Greatest Sports Video Game of All Time bracket! If you’re just joining us on the quest to find the greatest sports video game of all time, here’s some background info for how we got here:

We’ve made it through two rounds of voting and now find ourselves in the Elite 8. Here’s how the bracket looks:

We saw yet another 1 seed fall, this time WWF No Mercy fell to Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2003. This would’ve been shocking had we not seen the entire Pro Division fall apart back in round 1 so upsets have become the norm.

Only the Growing Up Division has managed to hold seed, leading to one of the most difficult decisions of my lifetime: Backyard Baseball or Mario Kart. This will be the hardest choice I’ve ever made in my life.

Also shoutout to Madden 2005’s cinderella story still going strong!

Let’s get to the Elite 8! 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!
