Game of the Decade: People's Choice Vote

Game of the Decade

Update: Round One polls are closed -- go to Round Two and vote your game into the Sweet 16!

Wow, so yesterday, that happened. We asked you to help us name the Game of the Decade, and man alive, you came through.

Because of the awesome response from the readers, we're changing things around a bit. Tomorrow, the Game Trust will whittle the field down from 64 to 32, and then we're going to let all of you make the decisions from there. It seems like you've got a pretty good handle on this, so go to it.

First things first, though. We need you to fill those Reader's Choice slots in the big GOTD bracket. From the most popular nominees in yesterday's fantastic comment thread, we've selected two candidates for each division. Vote for your favorite.

You can vote until tonight at midnight Eastern. Then come back tomorrow to see who made the cut, and the tournament will begin in earnest!
