Best. Series. Ever.

You've voted on the best game of all time, but what's the best series ever created? Game series are often greater than the sum of their parts; while individual games in a series are sometimes forgettable, it's the whole thing that people remember.

The users of GameFAQs have nominated 32 game series and it's time to let them battle it out. Starting July 1st, the 32-series winner-take-all tournament will begin. Using the Poll of the Day to decide, the most popular series will take the title of Best. Series. Ever.

Your mission is simple: Guess which series will win each day's battle. Fill out your best guess at how the final brackets will turn out, and win a prize. Don't forget: This is not a contest to see which series is everybody's favorite, or even which one is the best to play. It's all a big popularity contest, and visitors who have never visited GameFAQs before will be sure to stop in and vote.
