VGG March Madness Tournament: ROUND 3 (Top 16!)


Welcome to Round 3 of our very first VGG March Madness Tournament!

The second round had some VERY close finishes and a few blow outs, someone has to win and someone has to lose!

For those of you just finding this, the winners are decided by YOU! You give thumbs to your favorite games in each matchup, and the thumbs with the highest matchup continue on each round! You may vote for games for any reason even if you don't own them, or haven't played them.

Feel free to cheer on your favorite games, just keep it civil! Have fun commenting on the matchups as well, some will be very interesting! I'll try to provide fun tidbits of information with each matchup when I can as well.

But remember, this is meant as fun. Please only vote with your main account. Please don't make dummy accounts and the like as it ruins the purpose and the fun, and those votes will be discarded if found.



As this is the first ever VGG March Madness, we'll need to decide the name of the award given to the winner as well, feel free to comment with any suggestions!

Still No Suggestions? If nothing is suggested this round, I'll just make up something lame!


This next vote will end on April 8th at 11:59 PM Central Time.


That gives you only 4 days to vote, so make sure you get your votes in and spread the word!

To keep updated on the bracket and know when to vote, please subscribe to the VGG March Madness Subscription Thread.

I'll still be providing fun facts where I can so keep an eye out! Here's your Top 16!

Portal 2 vs Fallout 2

The number one ranked game scrapes by on a single vote AGAIN!!! Each round is a close call, in another battle of the 2s, will Portal 2 finally not be able to scrape out a victory?

Portal 2 vs Fallout 2

The only Fallout game to make it into this round, Fallout 2 holds its franchise on its shoulders! Can it bring the world of Fallout into the Top 8?

X-COM: UFO Defense vs The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

This game had its first close cut battle only making it through by one vote! It's going up against quite the heavy weight. The 8th ranked game vs the 9th ranked game here on VGG, will X-COM: UFO Defense hold it's rank in VGG March Madness?!?

X-COM: UFO Defense vs The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Even though this game is technically the underdog, it is tied for the most votes received during VGG March Madness! Is this underdog really a power house?

Half-Life 2 vs Mass Effect

In a big upset last round, Half-Life 2 managed to take out the current opponent's sequel, a sequel ranked much higher then the current competition! Will Half-Life 2 be responsible for stomping out the Mass Effect series on the bracket?

Not only does it host the longest title of any game in Round 3, it is also the lowest ranked game on VGG still in our competition coming in at 48!

This game just continues to surprise, can the biggest underdog still competing find its way to the Top 8?

Wizards of the Coast still has a foothold in the competition! However, even though this is 6 on the VGG rankings its opponent has had a lot of support thus far, will it make its way to the Top 8?

This game has head steady support the entire competition, exactly 21 votes each round! Not a bad number, can it get the steady support it needs to continue on?
