|Shadow of the Colossus - 61.07%|
98 for - 5 against
|Shadow of the Colossus - 66.23%|
I don't know if The Sim got a Game of the Decade boost or if Shadow of the Colossus hate is pretty widespread beyond my own tastes or what, but this was one of the weirdest prediction percentages all contest. Even battle people only favored SotC, a 2 seed, at a 2:1 ratio. Something was just way off here, especially when you compare those numbers to MGS2's.
As for the actual match, Shadow of the Colossus of course won it easily. There was some buzz about The Sims pulling an upset, and it died about 10 seconds into the poll. But SotC was actually over 70% at one point, then lost the ASV to fall back down near 69.
If you ignore the rest of the contest and just look at the first round, there was no way to expect anything other than a 55-45 win, at least, for MGS2 over SotC. Something very, very odd happened in the first round here. And the LOL x-stats can go to hell, too. Banjo-Tooie would wreck The Sims and everyone knows it.
