Ladies and gentlemen, we have our quadrant champions!
From Quadrant 1, the unequivocal, inarguable, longest shot and biggest Cinderella, 16.) Okami has made it to the Final Four, beating out 2.) The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt 7-6. Remember: it was literally 64 of 64 in making the field, beating out the likes of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (The number ONE game in), and survived a quadrant that had games such as Bloodborne, Mass Effect, World of Warcraft, and GTA: Vice City.
It's opponent, and the Quadrant 4 Champion, is 6.) The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker who defeated 5.) Half-Life 2 10-7. This was my favorite bracket heading in because of all the big games here: Mass Effect 2, Final Fantasy VII, Super Mario 64, Pokemon G/S/C, FF Tactics, Skyrim, KOTOR, RE 2 (1998), Kingdom Hearts, and Symphony of the Night. What a bracket.
On the opposite side, Quadrant 2's champion is another big name that didn't match its seed: 13.) DOOM (1993), which won decidedly against 2.) Metal Gear Solid 9-4. Of the four matchups, this had the biggest name power, but the largest difference. The Last of Us, Persona 4, FF IX, RDR, Super Mario Galaxy, Bioshock, GTA V.... None could rip and tear through the quadrant like the classic did.
The final Quadrant champion is 2.) Super Mario Bros 3., as it put away 8.) The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion 7-6. While Oblivion had several surprising wins, in a section that had Chrono Trigger, Uncharted 4, Snake Eater, the original Pokemon, FF VI, and Portal 2, none could conquer the most beloved NES platformer.
So now we've come to our overall Semifinals. Which two games will meet in the final winner take all vote? You have the power to decide. You have two days.
