There's more riding on these results than you know.
As the Super NES Classic is about a month away (or longer if you can’t lockdown a pre-order), we decided to needlessly sort out the super classics from the regular old classics in the 21 game collection. We took the format from our podcast series Cube Fight and applied it to the Super NES Classic. Since we haven’t played the Star Fox 2 on it and also this would be way easier with an even number, we’re excluding Star Fox 2 (for now). That means we have 20 games that we can pit against each other for our own amusement. And we want your help.
We organized the games chronologically (by North American dates) and we’ll be pitting them head-to-head as we go from 1991 to 1996. The games will be split into two brackets: one with the 10 games from 1991 to 1993, and the other with the 10 games from 1994 to 1996. Vote in the matchups below to determine what five games will go on to the second round, and from there, we’ll take each group of five and put them to a vote to determine which two will go on to the Super NES Classic Final Four.
If that’s all too complicated, just trust us here and vote for your favorite game in each of the matchups. Remember: there are no wrong answers except for voting for F-Zero over Super Mario World and Contra III over Link to the Past.
Get your votes in by September 5 and then we’ll move on to the second round.
