The last round of our Ultimate RPG Tournament took a look at four of the best Western RPGS. After a close race, the call of the apocalyptic world of Fallout 3 managed to pull ahead with a close second and third finish by Borderlands 2 and Deus Ex, respectively. Dead Rising was, for lack of a better term, dead on its feet…..and with an example of the humor we have come to expect and love from the games of today’s bracket, let’s introduce our next competitors!
For this round, we’ll be going back to some classics—plus one classically-inspired tale you might have heard about last year. Three of our games this week hail from the legendary cult classic, EarthBound (or Mother) series. We have full representation, with EarthBound Beginnings, EarthBound, and Mother 3 all competing for superiority alongside a game inspired by an EarthBound Halloween hack, but does Undertale have what it takes to go against its predecessors? An indie game supported through Kickstarter, Undertale made its mark with gaming fans all over last year; however, with the release of EarthBound on the Wii U and New 3DS virtual console recently, the original series is seeing renewed attention, and it’s managing to still impress players new and old today (including this very editor!). Any of these games could take this round, but we won’t know which until you vote for a champion!
To vote, simply use the poll included above, but be quick! Match-ups in this round only last a day and there’s no going back, so once the poll closes, it’s closed for good. Which quirky RPG will be laughing its way all the way to the winners’ circle? Be sure to check back tomorrow to find out, and don’t forget to visit the tournament’s hub page, where you can find the complete list of contenders, as well as up-to-date standings.
The combatants for the next match-up are: Golden Sun, Golden Sun:The Lost Age, Bravely Default, and The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky.
