God of War (2018) is the winner, beating out Grand Theft Auto V.

Is Chrono Trigger better than Burnout 3? According to IGN's audience, it is not. Also, Skyrim is better than Ocarina of Time, Breath of the Wild is better than Resident Evil 4 and Super Mario Bros. 3, Batman: Arkham City is better than Super Mario 64, Titanfall 2 is better than Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and Bloodborne is better than Tetris.

If you can feel your blood pressure rising, you're not alone — many of these match-ups were hard-fought and hard-won, but IGN's audience — which we're going to assume mostly consists of your hardcore FPS players, based on these results — knows what they like, and it certainly ain't Nintendo games.

The voters (somewhere between 20,000 and 50,000 of them) have slowly whittled the bracket down to a final eight through social media polls:

Our current theory is that BOTW only made it to the semi-final because it has a motorbike.

Currently, Breath of the Wild is beating out Bloodborne (on Twitter, at least, although IGN is also tallying up votes from Instagram, YouTube, and their own site), and it's likely to go up against God of War, GTA V, and GTA: San Andreas for the next round, which begins on Thursday, September 23rd. The final two will go head-to-head on Monday, September 27th, and the ultimate winner will be revealed on the 29th September.

So... how about that bracket, eh? Do you agree, or are you enraged by the opinions of strangers on the internet? Are we wrong, or is it the children who are wrong? Let us know in the comments!
