Last week's debate made me pretty nervous. On paper, comparing a cartoony and speedy shooter to a realistic and slow stealth shooting game made perfect sense. But this was Metal Gear -- could any series compare with it in a debate? With the possibility of an impending total landslide on my mind, I put the debate up anyways, and I'm really glad I did. The feedback from both sides was a pleasure to read, and the votes did both classics justice. It was close, but in the end it was the slow and steady shooter that won the race:

  • Metal Gear series (65 votes) -- Winner!
  • Metal Slug series (54 votes)

This week we have another great debate on paper. However, unlike last week, I could see the outcome of this week's discussion being even more close. Both games offer a huge arsenal of Nintendo characters to play as, but in totally different ways with the pacing and context of them being completely different. Most of us that enjoyed one ended up enjoying both of them, which should make choosing which series as a whole is better even harder on the Dtoid army. But that's exactly what we need to do.

Which series do you like better as a whole, and why? What aspects or individual games of the series made up your mind? Give it some serious thought, and then share your thought process with all of us. Get your Nintendo friends to share their opinions as well, and check back next week for the winner who will receive 100 gold coins, 5 stars, and a million trophies.

Bonus Question: What is one thing you do not enjoy about the series you voted for?
