Super NES vs. NES
It’s an all Nintendo final for the “Old-School,” side of the bracket, with two of Nintendo’s most iconic and successful consoles going at it for a spot in the championship. The NES is the best-selling console of all time, but the Super NES faced tougher competition yet still enjoyed similar commercial success.
Nintendo 64 vs. Xbox 360
Love this matchup to decide the “Modern Gen,” champ. The Nintendo 64 revolutionized the console industry, but the Xbox 360 introduced a new way to distribute digital media and compete online with Xbox Live.
