Go MVP Baseball 2005!!! Why isn't March Madness 2004 on the list? That game is a classic.
 
# 2 mike24forever @ 03/04/12 12:35 PM
Some very difficult match ups! I love selection Sunday!
 
# 3 Gotmadskillzson @ 03/04/12 12:49 PM
MLB The Show going to dominate..........going to be a slaughter.
 
# 4 redsrule @ 03/04/12 01:15 PM
I think the winners will be:
NFL 2k5
NBA 2k11
MVP Baseball 05
College Hoops 2k8
 
# 5 lnin0 @ 03/04/12 01:35 PM
No Links but TW is on the list twice?
THPS instead of THPS2?
NFS Most Wanted and NFS 2? Out of all the NFS titles those are the two to represent?
Forza 3 and 4....isn't that the same game?
Codies is snubbed completely - not even a nod to Colin McRae Rally 2
Why Winning Eleven 9 or 6 or 7?
All Pro, Back Breaker and PES12 ... isn't there other games more deserving?

There certainly wasn't voting on this earlier just randomly selected.

So is the head to head going to be fan voting?

It would be cool if we could fill out and submit our own brackets to see who gets closest to the final outcome.

agreed that March Madness 04 should definitely be on the list. I played that game to death. Still would if my Ps2 hadn't gone south.

I'm thinking and hoping NBA street vol.2 beats tecmo bowl
 
# 9 ridemooses @ 03/04/12 06:53 PM
I'm a huge sports fan and gamer and I really think Mario Tennis could win it all.
 
# 10 nikeman4life @ 03/04/12 11:54 PM
i think 2k5 will again over college hoops 2k8....surprises i see in first round ,mutant league football and lakers vs celtics.cinderellas....i see coach k and nba2k12,but i think 2k12 wood win it all if wasnt for online play.

Thinking MVP Baseball NCAA 06.

Mastered the art of 2 player baseball. One player pitches, the other fields. One player hits, the other runs. Glad to see Griffey Baseball getting some love.

MVP Baseball 03 trumps MVP Baseball 05 I think.
 
# 12 zanner @ 03/05/12 11:21 AM
If Hot Shots Golf wasn't against MVP, it could possibly upset. Other than that

Triple Play 96 upset alert
Mutant League Football upset alert
NFL Head Coach 09

For me, personally, it's going to be hard to beat
Tony Hawk
Mike Tyson
MVP Baseball
Ken Griffey Jr. Baseball

Really surprised Baseball Simulator 2000 isn't on here, now that was a fresh and fun game.

I'm just in complete awe at even looking at something like this lol. We should make this a live debate! Like a round table discussion.
 
# 14 matt8204 @ 03/05/12 03:26 PM
NHL '94 only got a 4-seed? Tough draw.
 
# 15 Cryolemon @ 03/06/12 01:14 PM
OOTP should get to the final 4 imho.
 
# 16 cycling7 @ 03/06/12 04:54 PM
Wow. The Tecmo region is tough. Madden 05 or Baseball Stars could win this division even though Tecmo Bowl was a wildly popular game. I also see RBI Baseball or Mike Tyson's Punch Out as a huge dark horse in the NBA 2k11 region
 
# 17 Blak_Baki_Hanma @ 03/06/12 06:42 PM
NFL 2k5
Mike Tyson's PunchOut
All Pro 2k8/FIFA 10 (TOSS UP)
NFL Gameday 98

This is my Final 4 from the given choices.

FIFA is probably the most reliable franchise on the list but my personal fav would be NCAA Gamebreaker (late 90's)... Nothing beats those Custom Playbooks... they were light years ahead of the competition.
 
# 18 thetrueBROSKY @ 03/06/12 08:40 PM
my final four is:
nfl 2k5
nba 2k11 (which beats rbi baseball in the elite 8)
coach k basketball
college hoops 2k8

the three best basketball games of all-time in my final four
 
# 19 EPatetta @ 03/06/12 10:31 PM
Just the fact that Backbreaker made it in the tourney over MADDEN 04 is a travesty
 
# 20 B-Lo-Z-Ro @ 03/07/12 12:46 AM
No Mario Kart 64???
