Well, It's been a while since I made one of these.
On yesterday's CCCC Round of 32 article, somebody mentioned the possibility of doing another bracket, but with Video Games. For somebody who has been playing video games since he was 3 years old, this sounded pretty exciting. So today, I went ahead and threw this together. A 68-team bracket made up of famous video game franchises:
I'm using this website because it was easy, and I have no idea how to use Google Docs. Unfortunately, this website did not allow me to use more than 64 teams, meaning I couldn't put any play-in games in the bracket. So consider these to be the play in games (all 16 seeds, much like in the CCCC)
Fighters Destiny vs. NFL Blitz (winner to take on Super Mario)
'Splosion Man vs. Putt-Putt (winner to take on Madden NFL)
Excitebike vs. Jak and Daxter (winner to take on Halo)
Animal Crossing vs. Virtua Fighter (winner to take on Final Fantasy)
And as for sites of the games, here is what I had in mind, with each game that the site comes from:
N. Sanity Island (Crash Bandicoot)
Dragon Shores (Spyro the Dragon)
2nd and 3rd Rounds:
Sera (Gears of War)
SimCity (The Sims)
Azeroth (World of Warcraft)
Dream Land (Kirby)
Empire City (inFAMOUS)
Aperture Science Enrichment Center (Portal)
Hyrule (Legend of Zelda)
Mushroom Kingdom (Super Mario)
Liberty City (Grand Theft Auto)
Angel Island (Sonic the Hedgehog)
Nashua, New Hampshire (Where Ralph H. Baer first invented video games)
And I could do conferences, but I don't want this article to get too lengthy.
So, If you guys think any franchises should be added, taken out, if anything is seeded too high, too low, or if you have a better suggestion for a host site, please let me know! Feedback would be greatly appreciated!
