Last week was quite the end of the year blowout debate. I threw my debate traps into the waters, cast out my anchor, and waited for a week to see what kind of things would wash up. A decent amount of fiddler trolls surfaced as expected, but for the most part our usual weekly intelligent debate continued as scheduled.
It wasn't quite as exciting as the whored out daily Discovery Channel documentaries, but I didn't grow a beard, lose an arm or earn a hundred grand, so I guess things even out. That being said, when I returned to the docks with that week's gains, Nintendo did not look pleased. Anyways, I'm off to bang Diane Lane. Here are the results:
Xbox 360 (79 votes) -- Winner!
PS3 (53 votes)
Wii (13 votes)
Wii (85 votes) -- Loser!
PS3 (34 votes)
Xbox 360 (12 votes)
The sales don't lie, and Nintendo has plenty to be happy about. However, these numbers don't lie either, and I don't think a "bias community" complaint is enough to write-off these staggering results, so Nintendo also has plenty to be upset about.
This week we return to the odd debate tournaments that were temporarily paused after the end of the Gamecube brackets. We venture into the Xbox round of debates with two games that were both ambitious and more comparable by odd debate standards than usual. The settings were drastically different though, as were their approaches to nonlinear gameplay. What will be the deciding factor for you this week?
Which game do you think is better, and why? Give it some serious thought, get some Xbox friends to share their opinions as well, and check back next week for the winner.
