Okay, I’m extending one more day.

steps out of time portal, having ensured the destruction of whatever cool lizard species might have voted for FFX

Huh, thought Zanarkand would win that one for sure. Not complaining though. Surprise me again, Waypoint, keep Mother 3 on its path of besting far more popular Nintendo titles!


#247

As a Motherboy I would love to help it’s chances…

…Animal Crossing slap tho.


#248


better watch yourself


#249

I mean, as far as things to watch myself for go, a giant loan that I never have any obligation to repay doesn’t rank very dangerously. If it didn’t shatter the competitive integrity of this contest I would vote for M3 a couple more times…


#250

Honestly Mother 3 deserves the win, Animal Crossing meme cult aside. Love Theme makes me tear up even without context.


#251

Just chiming in that Solitude should have won and I regret nominating DOOM because of this.

Also To Zanarkand is better than Wind Scene (even if Chrono Trigger is like my #2 GoaT)

fight me


#252

Honestly Mother 3 deserves the win, Animal Crossing meme cult aside. Love Theme makes me tear up even without context.

Yeah, we need to discount the memes for this match-up. This higher quality version of Love Theme kicked me right in the feels <3


#253

I wasn’t going to bring out the vocal version, but I’ve been bamboozled into clicking two Mother 3 SilvaGunners in one day, so we’re fighting dirty now


#254

RESULTS

White Light - Tales of Zestiria VS Experiments in Confusion (Menu Theme) - Prey - 6-8
Die Anywhere Else - Night in the Woods VS Friends - Sonic Mania - 12-4
I Gotta Believe! (De La Soul Version) - Parappa the Rapper 2 VS Theme of Laura - Silent Hill 2 - 10-5
Love Theme - Mother 3 VS Main Theme - Animal Crossing - 8-8

Animal Crossing and Mother 3 will have a rematch because half of the voters are soulless husks who are unable to shed tears anymore. White Light proves no match for the power of confusion, Sonic died from not having friends, and Parappa defeated his inner demons manifested into a creepy pervert triangle butcher because he believed in himself so much. Moving on!

THIS ROUND…

REVOTE: Love Theme - Mother 3 VS Main Theme - Animal Crossing

Title Screen - Mega Man 2 VS Theme - Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Horse Steppin’ - Hotline Miami VS Enter the Gungeon - Enter the Gungeon
The Concept of Love - Jet Set Radio Future VS Jump Up, Super Star! - Super Mario Odyssey
Burning Hearts (Burning ANGEL) - Burning Rangers VS Where My Dogs At - Def Jam Vendetta

#255

Please don’t make Tom Nook mad…


#256

I have voted for New Leaf as a sign of good faith towards Nook and his kin. You may return this courtesy by voting for Mother 3.


#257

EVERYBODY SAY ALRIGHT!


#258

I have a feeling that, despite each matchup taking me like 10 seconds to decide, everything I voted for is going to lose unfortunately.

Please don’t let that happen. Please vote BURNING RANGERS!!!


#259

The Def Jam Vendetta theme is a banger but real talk… if Burning Rangers doesn’t win that match-up a crime will have been committed.


#260

Look, y’all… DMX has had a rough fucking couple of years, err, decade. The least we can do is to acknowledge where the dogs are at and give him the nod over burning rangers.


#261

DMX may have had a rough decade.

But the Saturn has had it rough since launch.


#262

Less than 48 hours left!


#263

Last day, make your votes!
