Game SERIES Debate to the Death! MGS VS Half-Life

10:45 PM on 11.03.2009 // Tom Fronczak

Last week's bonus questions brought in even more discussion than the week before, and when you outdo a Zelda and Final Fantasy debate, that's saying something. And boy did you guys and gamer girls have plenty to say. I'm thrilled the new bonus question format is getting so much love! The Half-Life series also got plenty of love, and set a new game debate record for the most winning votes ever:

  • Half-Life series (198 votes) -- WOW!
  • Halo series (38 votes)

To see one of the best selling game series of all time get put in its place turned into quite the exciting comments section. For those of you who thought Half-Life was miles beyond Halo's reach, I hope you're ready for what's in store this week.

A few of you trembled in fear last week at just the thought of this debate. It may not be easy, but do your best to choose which series you like better as a whole, and tell us why! What aspects or individual games of the series made up your mind? Is your choice mainly due to support for that series, or your dislike of other series? Give it some serious thought, share your thought process with all of us, and then get some gaming friends to join in on the fun.

New Bonus Questions! Hit the jump to see not one, but all of the bonus questions. From now on I'm going to try a slightly new format to encourage more discussion! Feel free to suggest bonus questions of your own that you'd like to see used in next week's debate topic, which is also listed below.

BONUS QUESTIONS:

BQ1. What are you hoping to see in the future from the series you voted for? Feel free to get very detailed and long-winded!

BQ2. Name one thing you like better about the series you didn't pick.

BQ3. What was your favorite game/episode in each series? Why?

BQ4. What was the moment(s) in each series that emotionally affected you the most?

BQ5. What is your favorite level or environment in each series? Why? 

BQ6. Pretend you were the creator of each series. What are some things you would have done differently?

SUBMIT YOUR OWN QUESTIONS: 

Each week I will post what next week's debate will be, and allow you to all post your own "bonus questions" in the comments for next week's debate. I'll choose the best of the bunch and then we can get some serious feedback from all different gamer perspectives on not just each game/series, but also a few individual aspects of those games/series. Have something you're dying to know what other games thought of in the game or series? Post your question in the comments and find out what the response is!

NEXT WEEK'S DEBATE:

What's your favorite Legend of Zelda game in the whole series?

As usual, there's always an open door policy on suggesting future game debates in the comments. So don't be shy!
