BEST. PICTURE. EVER. Since the days of 2002, we've all joked around about how a Pong/Tetris pic would be the best we've ever had in this contest. But we never actually thought we would see such a picture. But sure enough, CJayC proved that he can actually have a sense of humor when we saw the Pong Paddle go up against the Line Block in the match pic. The actual match itself sucked, but the hilarity that was the match pic was more than enough for the board to enjoy a good laugh for a day. It was necessary as well, because Division 128 caused every flame war in the book, while the first three matches in Division 8 put everyone to sleep. A good site-wide fad was a nice break.

An actual analysis, you ask? The Tetris Line Block didn't win the Best Tetris Block contest for nothing, and this is clearly the reason why Tetris won this match. Had it been that pain in the ass Staircase Block, we may have seen a different result. The Pong Paddle takes crap from no one, and had it not gone up against itself in this match, it could have easily won the contest. But alas, it was not to be. Tetris and its 33 million copies distributed were simply too much for one Pong Paddle to take, and Pong bowed out of the contest after this matchup. Still, the two matches involving Pong were among the most fun in the contest, and it almost made up for Zero Wing not making it in. ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO PONG, bitches =)

On a more serious note, this match truly did suck. 67000 votes is a horribly low voter turnout, and it was blatantly obvious that Tetris wasn't going to do squat against Zelda 1 in the next round because of this. Division 8, from day one, was nothing more than filler until the Mario 3 vs Zelda 1 final. The other games are nice, but they simply don't stack up to the fan bases of the aforementioned two on this site.

I won't lie though, I was rooting for Pong to win this match the whole way. It sucks that it got killed so badly, but hey, I had Tetris in my bracket. And with this, the second round of Division 8 is done and over with. Four matches, four insanely easy picks to make. And for the 28% who didn't think Mario 3 was making it out of its 4 pack alive, pass some of that stuff over this way please?
