I know I said that Castlevania's doom was spelled out for it once it struggled with Perfect Dark, but Goldeneye still had to prove that it would win the match. It did so by easily dispatching the Sega Saturn title in scoring over 80% of the vote. Most doubt about whether or not Goldeneye would make it to the Sweet 16 were doused after this match, with merely a few SOTN hopefuls maintaining that it could still win.
But like some of us were saying all along, Goldeneye is a different animal from Perfect Dark. It was the highest-selling game for the N64 until Ocarina of Time was released, and it was fresh. Perfect Dark was simply a sexier (literally) Goldeneye, and didn't have the same suavé to it. But more on all of that later. For this match, it was a simple blowout that proved Goldeneye's superiority in the so-called BangFang Triangle, and nothing more.
