NFL 2K5 Region


It was a pretty pedestrian first round. The closest matchup by far was the Madden 2001 vs. NFL Blitz matchup, which Madden ended up getting a comfortable lead and keeping Blitz at arms length. Second round matchups instantly become more intriguing. Virtua Tennis has kept it close early vs. NFL 2K5 and the other three are just as tough. Should be an interesting second round.

Tecmo Bowl Region

The story of the Tecmo Bowl region was easily the HUGE upset of Fight Night Round 3 over Baseball Stars. This is the biggest upset in either iteration of the tournament (2008 or 2012) thus far. Otherwise, the story in this region is how top heavy it seemed to be, with the higher seeds winning elsewhere except the 8/9 game by a huge Margin. In a matchup of 2K classics, NBA 2K12 completely overwhelmed All Pro Football 2K8.

The Ken Griffey Jr. region saw only one lower seed win, with Mario Tennis ursuping Trials HD by quite a large margin. The 5/12 OOTP vs. NFL Gameday matchup was a close matchup throughout, but OOTP ultimately ended up running away at the end.

my final four would be:

nfl 2k5, tecmo super bowl, nba 2k12, college hoops 2k8. somehow i think mvp 2005 or mlb 10: the show should be in there too.

My guess is the Final Four will come down to NFL 2K5, CHoops 2K8, NBA 2K11, and MVP 2005.

2K5 and 2K8 will face off for the championship and 2K5 will come out on top.
