Round 1 of the WDGR March Madness has come to a close – 64 video game franchises duked it out, and voted on by you, 32 winners have proceeded. We chat about the new matchups and break it down, making some bold predictions. But, the tournament is no good without your help!
Alright everyone, this Monday we’re getting March Madness started early, as we begin the very first WDGR March Madness Tournament! See your favorite video game franchises go head to head in a battle of votes on Twitter! Who will outlast the other 63 franchises? Over the next few weeks we’ll find out!
64 video game franchises have been chosen and randomly split up into groups of 16. Will and Drew will have a live draft, choosing their favorites. Once they’ve been chosen, they’ll be seeded into a bracket, where they’ll be voted on Twitter. Voting will last for one week, and the game with the most votes will advance to the next round in the tournament.
Each week on the show, we’ll discuss the results and the upcoming matches, which will once again go out to Twitter for voting, until there is one Champion crowned.
Who will come out on top? Will Street Fighter defeat Super Mario? Will The Last of Us take out Uncharted?
Tune in live this Monday at 6:30pm ET to see how it all unfolds. Once the draft is complete, don’t forget to print out your own copy of the bracket and fill it out to play along. And, be sure to follow us on Twitter, @WDGRPodcast, to participate in voting!
