GotD's SotC/MGS2 poll was the Closest wire-to-wire match in history

This is the complete listing of the closest wire-to-wire matches in GameFAQs history. In other words, these are the tightest polls we've ever seen over the course of the entire 24 hours that they ran, since they're ranked according to the biggest lead that one contestant was able to create over his opponent at any point in the day.

Pre-historic Matches (2002-2003)
These matches were very close throughout and probably deserve spots on this list, but we don't have exact numbers for them since there was no update tracking until 2004.
(Except for Mario/Crono, Vercetti/DK and Ganon/Magus in '03, which Ngamer tracked by hand.)
