Round 2 ended much like the way it started: with blowouts. Only two games managed to not win with a 60% majority of the total vote for a match, with no games having their win within less than 10 percentage points of the total vote. Most matches saw their winners win comfortably with 60, 70, or 80 percent of the vote, including Resident Evil 4 (GCN; 81.3%), Shadow of the Colossus (PS2; 76.9%), Call of Duty 2 (PC/Xbox 360; 81.8%), Mario Kart DS (Nintendo DS; 75%), Half-Life 2 (Xbox; 81.2%) and Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap (GBA; 76.5%).
