The Great Game Contest of 2003 was the first major videogame Contest held on Board 8. It was hosted by Ngamer and ran throughout the Summer of '03, with a new match going up at about the same time each new poll came online for the 2003 Character Battle. The GGC was reborn in 2006 when Ulti ran what he called Video Game Battle 1, and the tradition continued with Video Game Battle 2 in 2007.

Results and Highlights Edit

Chrono Trigger became 2003 Champion with a 101 to 88 win over Super Mario 3, but the real Championship had occurred two days earlier, when CT edged Ocarina of Time in a 261 to 246 overtime showdown, a record that still stands as the biggest user tournament turnout in Board 8 history. In reality though OoT was lucky to even make it to that match, as it had barely advanced ahead of StarCraft in a 139-135 result that was one of the most controversial of the season. CT had likewise survived a scary 5 vote Round Two decision in beating Super Mario Kart. Mario 3, meanwhile, was nearly stunned by black horse Super Smash Bros. Melee in the Elite Eight, and only ended up winning by a single vote.

Despite all that drama, the real story of 2003 was the Cinderella run of 16th seeded Animal Crossing. It began by knocking off #1 Final Fantasy 7 in a 98-94 affair that created a proud new Board 8 tradition (Ogre Battle 64, Phoenix Wright, Big Rigs and Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden would be the ones to upset FF7 in the coming years). Then AC continued to surprise by scoring tiny, hotly contested wins over a non-anti voted RPG in Xenogears, a new Nintendo classic in Metroid Prime, and old school favorite Street Fighter II before finally running out of steam against Mario 3 in the Final Four.
