Game Debate to the Death! Favorite game of 2010?

In the previous debate I started bringing the massive RPG debate tournament qualifiers to a close by asking everyone which Wild Arms game was their favorite out of the entire series. After reading through all of the comments it's clear that...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Wild Arms series

In the previous debate I took a break from our ongoing RPG series debate topic to see how you all would adapt when asked which of these two vastly different games was better: StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty (49 votes) -- Winner! Halo: Reach...

Game Debate to the Death! Mana series

In last week's debate we moved from the Valkyrie Profile series to the newer Valkyria Chronicles RPG series. Even though almost nobody had a single bad thing to say about the PSP sequel, the response was overwhelming for the first. Here are...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Valkyria Chronicles

In last week's debate we compared and contrasted newer and much older games from a series that gets much praise in the RPG communities. The original and the sequel were tied for the first dozen votes, but eventually the fame of the ori...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Valkyrie Profile series!

In the previous debate we reached way back to one of the oldest RPG series of all time. Despite release dates spanning about two decades, Ultima fans proved to be every bit as varied as the series over the years. To have an almost even amou...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Ultima series

In the last debate, we had one of the closest voting races I've ever seen. Persona 4 would take the lead by two or three votes, and then Persona 3 would strike back with a few votes of its own to tie it up. This continued about ten times un...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Persona series

Last week was a nostalgia nightmare for many readers, as we were tasked with the challenge of picking which EarthBound (Mother) game was our favorite out of the series. Some were completely on board with the newer Mother 3, while some stood...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! EarthBound (Mother)

EarthBound, which has always been known as Mother overseas, started out as one of the most beloved RPG series of its time, remained one of the most cherished series all throughout the 1990s, and has since then proven that it stands the test...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! K.O.T.O.R. series

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Fallout series

In last week's debate we discussed the pros and cons of two of the most loved games in recent years, and both games saw an immense amount of support, with many elaborate posts that I really enjoyed reading. Dtoid reader knutaf even wrote...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Mass Effect series

Just like the previous debate, calling Mass Effect a series after two games feels a little strange, but just like Golden Sun, Mass Effect is a series where fans loved the sequel as much -- or even more -- than the original game. That ended ...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Golden Sun series

Yes, I know. Calling Golden Sun a series is a little laughable, but this RPG tournament qualification process is all about including every game the Dtoid Army demands, and the Golden Sun games were high on that list. In last week's debate...

Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Kingdom Hearts series

Last week's debate almost proved a lot of readers wrong, and thus was a lot of fun to tally up the votes. Things started off with a wall of Grandia II votes and it didn't take long before people were declaring the debate over. Then a few Gr...

Game Debate to the Death: What are your favorite RPGs?
