Last week we had an early Halloween Debate between Silent Hill and Resident Evil 2, as well as a separate debate between the two series. Both games proved to be hugewinners in earlier PlayStation One debates, and this week each game came out a winner in one area. Here are the results:
Silent Hill (44 votes) > Resident Evil 2 (20 votes)
Resident Evil series (38 votes) > Silent Hill series (14 votes)
Interestingly enough, if you add the results of both debates, you get a tie. It will definitely be a debate we revisit once a year. This week we move on to the Nintendo 64 round of odd debate brackets, with two incredibly successful games of different genres.
Don't forget -- the point of these odd debates is not to just vote with your gut -- it forces us to be more analytical and think like a game designer. It gives us unique discussions that force everyone to think outside the box, consider all the pros and cons of each game, and compare and contrast them in a way that really makes us think about why we did or didn't enjoy a certain game.
Which games do you think is better, and why? Give it some serious thought, get some N64 friends to share their opinions as well, and check back next week for the winner.
P.S. So far, it looks like I've stumped you guys again! This week's Monday Mind Teasers still has an unsolved cover.
