Would you believe that NiGHTS has the highest overall review score of any game in this contest? Props to Slowflake for that information, and props to both him and steve illumina for doing previews for each match. It isn't easy signing on to do a writeup every day, believe me.

But back to NiGHTS. Of all the games in this contest, a lowly little Sega Saturn title destined for nothing other than being overseeded and getting its ass kicked in the first round, has the highest review score of any game in this contest. Apparently, we have quite a gem on our hands. The problem is that most people haven't heard of it, and it got the beating that it was expected to get against the revolutionary Mario 64.

As for Mario 64, talk about a game given the shaft in this contest. It was horribly underseeded at 7, and its reward is a one way ticket out of this contest in the second round thanks to being inevitably paired up with Ocarina of Time. Sucks too, because I wasn't kidding when I mentioned how revolutionary Mario 64 was. It deserved a better fate, but again, 63 games left this contest unhappy.
