I'm voting for 8-bit sports games and Treasure.
Sports, because I got an NES Classic and would probably never be motivated to play Tecmo Bowl otherwise. (YES, I know it's supposed to be good... but sports.)
Treasure, because I have had a few of their titles in my backlog for quite a while (Silhouette Mirage, Dynamite Heady... I'm strongly considering getting McDonald's Treasure Land Adventure).

Mario & Sonic, I've played a ton of. The only main-series Mario game I've beaten is Mario 2, so I guess I could stand to play more, but... IDK. I've played a TON of Street Fighter in my time, but without having a friend on my skill-level, it's sometimes a drag to play; I'd be game for some SF Alpha though.

If Pinball wins, I'll be sitting the month out. There's a shop that's about 20 minutes from where I live that has a pinball room loaded with dozens of different games. I love physical pinball, but video pinball just doesn't cut it (based mostly on my current setup)! There *are* a couple pinball video games I'd like to try (like Devil's Crush) but I'd have to buy them and they're low priorities.

I voted for Mario vs Sonic and Pinball. Mario vs Sonic mostly because I wouldn't mind playing some of the spin-off games (like Super Mario Picross for example), and Pinball because there's a lot of pinball games that seem really neat (and I haven't played too many of them).

As for the other ones...
8-bit Sports games could be neat. I don't really know too many but I don't think it would be too hard for me to find some that I would want to play.

Treasure games would be one of the harder categories for me, mostly because I haven't enjoyed any Treasure games so far (I've tried Alien Soldier, Dynamite Headdy, Gunstar Heroes, and Light Crusader). They just tend to be too difficult for my tastes. However, if the topic is chosen, I would definitely be up for some Sin & Punishment.

Street Fighter would be the hardest category for sure. I am not good at fighting games, especially ones that require memorizing button inputs for various moves. I just can't memorize very long strings of inputs. I could maybe do Pocket Fighter though, since it seems like it would be a bit simpler than the mainline entries.

Either way I can't wait to see which one will win. Even if we can't change our votes, there is still a while left to vote.

If Mario vs. Sonic ties with Pinball then the only solution is for everyone to play Sonic Spinball.

Now I've got the idea of "games where you are the ball", such as Sonic Spinball and Kirby's Dream Course.

Tecmo Super Bowl is far superior, just so you know. Tecmo Bowl is okay, but a good bit simpler as well, with only four plays per team and not full 11-man rosters.
