Game Debate to the Death!
Silent Hill VS Tomb Raider

Last week we came to the conclusion of the SNES / Sega Genesis odd debate brackets, with NBA Jam heating up and Donkey Kong Country on a banana and balloon filled rampage. Each side made their way to the semifinals by doubling their competitors' vote totals along the way, and by keeping true to that same pattern, so did the winner of last week's debate. Here is the one who came out on top:

  • Donkey Kong Country -- Winner!

This week we move on to the PlayStation odd debate brackets, with four more games battling with other games they've rarely been compared to. With Silent Hill and Tomb Raider we have two third person shooters that were just as memorable as they were frustrating to control, not to mention they both became movies many years later. However, aside from that, their genres and plots were completely different.

How will you make your decision this week? Will the action of one game separate it from the other? Did the lead role of one game trump the other game's lead character of the other gender? Or will it all come down to story and character development? It's up to you to decide!

Which game do you think is better, and why? Give it some serious thought, get some PlayStation friends to share their opinions as well, and check back next week for the winner and two new PS1 contendors.

Bonus Questions: Which series overall have you enjoyed more? All of the Silent Hill games, or the Tomb Raider franchise? Also, which movie did you enjoy more?
