    Congratulations to Zelda franchise and Zelda fans from a ME fan (I know that a lot of ME fans voted for Zelda in all rounds so I am mostly happy for them.) and sorry for TLDR post.

    You guys did excellent job and promoted your franchise very well. I was especially impressed with your victory over AC with it's massive Facebook support from Ubisoft.

    As for the SC and Huskateers, well, you may not agree, but Husky and his fans went nowhere near that hard on you as they went on ME or TES. Husky posted one small FB announcement less than 10 hours before the end of your match. Compare that with Youtube video (!) in which he was almost begging his fans to vote, FB post and Twitter post which were submitted 22 - 24 hours before the end ME / TES' matches.

    BUT IT DOESN'T MATTER. For all I know SC fans themselves might love Zelda and decided not to fight that hard deliberately. On top of that, correct me if I am wrong, but I think that you did not have any offical Facebook support in any of your matches and none of your forums is as big as TeamLiquid.net, Battle.net or our Bioware Social Network.

    That makes your victory even more impressive! It may also mean that most of "neutral" players do like Zelda the most.

    Oh and congratulations to SC fans too. SC fans, you are one hell of fanbase and fearsome opponent :) for anyone. So congratulations to both top contenders and see you in future battles ;)

    Considering everyone I know who likes Zelda is a big enough troll to tell even non-gamer girls who are obviously turned off by it about his adventures in princess slaying thinking it may somehow get him a GJ. ("Good Job!" /awkward smile)

    I have at least never heard anyone try and explaine the Star Craft fluff in RL, ruin their marragie with an awful costume themed wedding that rightfully tells both families you're nuts, or have a ugly cartoon tatto on a body that honestly does not need to show skin. Frankly the Zelda fanbase is a goldmine of literally huge nerds to mock and thus I beg you... please never change. Thinking of putting those posters from Nentendo Power you still have up after 20 years down? DON'T I promise this time the girl you bring home will get that you are cool and edgy, not a manboy who still likes the stuff her or her little brother did when they were ten. Got a great idea for a Zelda tat? PLEASE POST PICTURES ONCE YOU GET IT! Zelda Wedding? YouTube it please! It is you who keep us regular gamers looking like normal humans; and my sex life loves you for it!

    Srsly, its a joke that Zelda won. It is - for sure - an epic game but there is a reason that people make their money with Starcraft. I mean come on, the koreans watch it on television.
    Sry but without all the little Kids voting for Zelda because they never played SC (shame on you ^^) SC would have won.
    Sure there is no competitive scene in Zelda but just Single Player (well i dont think it will ever have a MP because how would that work?^^).

    And having 25 Games for staying popular is not a positive argument
    Starcraft just needed SC/SC:BW to stay popular for over 10 years. SC2 is about to get the same.

    But i think Zelda just won because everyone played Zelda because its a Single Player game and easier to play.

    Oh please, until that gaming league picks GOOD games (meaning no SC or Halo style trash) then they will be no more than a passing fad. A joke like the Spike TV awards. Zelda may always be an adventure game but it tries new gadgets and puzzles. What has SC done? Click and watch things happen with no control over the action itself. BORING.

    Well SC fans we may have lost this year but we shall return and stronger than before as e-sports continues to grow in size and power. While I may feel that each Zelda game has been the same one remade there is no defining what it did do for the gaming industry, but be ready for next time. Again gg, congrats on the win and happy 25th Anniversary Zelda.

    Never liked the Zelda games, never played Starcraft.. Good for both franchises I guess.

    Posted: April 25, 2011 10:14 PM

    With Link's 25th Anniversary, Oot 3D and Skyward Sword on the way, and then this, winning as Best Franchise...there is no doubt that 2011 is the year of Legend of Zelda. Period.

    i wonder if people really voted with thier brain or with their heart. By watching zelda and the mass amount of games they maid, i cant even say i'd go back to playing any of them. Beat once and its over, another subpar RPG that gets worst with each release.

    Then you have starcraft, which Never gets old and everybody is still playing it everyday. Thats why Zelda won the nostalgia vote, but starcraft wins my vote for actually having gameplay that is not 1 dimensional.

    Sc2 = the king. This poll sucked.
