The #1 seed Contra from the Joel Bracket has Jeff’s 5th round pick Shadowgate. Two adventure games but two very different styles. Contra is the classic travel and beat the level type of adventure game relying on timing and figuring out the weakness of the opponent. Shadowgate is a point and click adventure game where the user must use their brains and wit to avoid death. I am a fan of both but Shadowgate was a much tougher game that gave you more for your money than Contra that could be beaten in less than a week.
