Castlevania and StarTropics advance, the latter barely edging out Ninja Gaiden 2 by 1 vote.

Starting round of 32.

CV3 and Ninja Gaiden win convincingly over FF and Double Dragon.

Next up:

4. Super Mario Bros 3
5. Megaman 2
17. Kirby's Adventure
15. Contra

Wow. Some serious heavy hitters. Not that it really matters, since SMB3 and MM2 are absolutely 100% destined for final 4.

UNLESS YOU DECIDE TO VOTE IRONICALLY BECAUSE I SAID THAT

No, seriously, I'll just murder you all in your sleep.  Every single one of you.  Possibly with each other.

I voted for MM2 and Kirby's Adventure, so I should only get half-murdered.

What I would like to know is why Contra is very decidedly losing in this poll.

It's an NES arcade port up against three games which are probably the best in their respective series?

I agree with that for all of them except Kirby's Adventure. It's a great game, don't get me wrong; but Kirby's Superstar on the SNES is hands down the best Kirby game ever made for being the first one to make it so that all powers had multiple moves or their own distinct mechanics. Plus everyone likes hats and coop play right?

Kirby's Adventure was great for it's time though. It was a good console upgrade to Dreamland that added in a lot of great new concepts. Hell, I like it just for the fact that it pushed the concept of a platformer having levels that actually resembling their surroundings on the map screen closely.

Yeah but in this instance it's really superior to the original arcade game.  The original was barely readable, had huge slowdown problems, and gave you a hitbox big enough to blot out the sun.

But yeah it's up against a bunch of games that have legitimately earned "BEST NES GAME EVA" polls in other media, so being just "really, really good" isn't good enough.
