Another match featuring a Zelda title, another huge blowout that made it look like Zelda was going to own this contest. And I don't blame people for thinking this, but look deeper into the stats. It especially helps when one notices that the site looked perfectly normal for this matchup, with only one poll on the front page. The same held true for FF7's match against Suikoden II, so the comparisons were easy.

Remember the comparison I made between Sonic 2 and Super Mario World? The same exact thing works here as well. FF7 faced a tougher opponent than Ocarina of Time, yet it managed a higher prediction percentage, more votes, and saw the vote total in its poll go much higher than the total in Ocarina of Time's poll. The only difference is that Suikoden II managed to score 2000 more votes than Fallout 2. Big deal. Suikoden II is a stronger game for a reason. The horribly overhyped FF7/OOT matchup was decided once this poll was over, though watching people continue to make cases for Ocarina of Time with the proof right in front of them was pretty funny to watch.

Not to disrespect either of these two games or anything. Ocarina of Time sold 10 million copies for a reason, and Fallout 2 is quite the amazing PC RPG. But in terms of pure extrapolated strength, Final Fantasy 7 won this contest 24 polls into it.
