Game Debate to the Death!
Best wrestling game ever?


10:56 PM on 12.18.2007



Last week's Dtoid boot camp debate was a skating showdown between any Tony Hawk game of your choosing versus the recently released Skate. The votes were overwhelming and together we came to a clear conclusion. Here are the results:

  • Any Tony Hawk game: 25 votes
  • skate.: 95 votes - Winner!

Last week just goes to show that classics don't always reserve a place in our hearts as bigger and better games come along with each new console release. Although, the Thanksgiving debate showed that we still love older football games more than newer ones, so the torch isn't always passed on with each generation that passes in the sports genre.

This week we look at another game series that has greatly changed over the years, not just in graphics and gameplay, but even as an industry itself. That's right, I'm talking about the WCW, WWF, WWE, and whatever the hell else the panda haters decide to name their leagues in the future. For some of us wrestling is nothing more than a one year phase in our lives that we'd rather forget about, but there's no denying it's a successful corner of the entertainment industry. And as far as video games are concerned, it's nice to know that every wrestling game that's released each year undergoes more content changes than just a simple roster switch-up like many of the current sports games have been guilty of in recent years.

New wrestlers come and go just as often as the games released in their series. So this week I want you to pick out your favorite wrestling game of all time. Which is your favorite, and why? Was it the graphics, the controls, or did it just have your favorite wrestler in it? Give us some reasons for your decision, get some other candyasses and jabronis to give their opinions as well, and check back next week for the winner. Feel free to also let us know which wrestlers and wrestling terms you loved and hated the most over all the years. Let us smell what you're cooking.

FIFA 15 puts priority on emotions and giant dogpiles
