Debate

In the last debate we tackled the entire Dragon Quest series and tasked everyone with choosing their single favorite game. Some older titles got more support than I expected, and some got less, but when the dust finally sett...
After yet another RPG series debate, we're growing ever closer to the actual epic tournament that will let your favorite RPGs battle to the death for the honor of being "the best RPG of all time." However, the RPG genre is on...
In the last debate we got one step closer to Dtoid's March Madness tournament that will run for several months. Our quest to find the best RPGs for our competition led us to the Breath of Fire series and the response we got w...
Last week we made progress on our journey of selecting all the contenders for the massive RPG game debate tournament that is drawing near. Unlike the week before last, we found an almost unanimous decision for what will sure...
Last week we began the process of gathering the final contestants for the many-month-long RPG debate to the death! Before moving on this week with Suikoden, let's see which game from the Tales RPG saga made the cut and will e...
In the last debate I dropped the bombshell on everyone that we're about to start another multiple month RPG debate tournament, but not yet! After receiving about five different nominees from over 200 of you (OMG!) my head is ...
Like other Destructoid editors, I get a lot of messages from readers. Some of them agree with my gaming opinions, some of them disagree. Some of them are so world-changing that they totally tear apart my view of the world an...
Last time we spent all week focusing on just the Final Fantasy series, and it was quite a lot to focus on. If you thought that was daunting though, just wait! Final Fantasy debates are usually a touchy subject, but while the ...
The previous game debate let the readers pick their favorite game of 2009, and the results are in! With over a hundred votes cast for 40 different games, one game in particular rose way to the top. Before long it became a bat...
Last week's debate offered tons of options and the votes piled in by the hundreds. Given the freedom to vote for any game series as your favorite of all time, here were the top leaders out of the 59 different series that rece...
Oh boy, last week I thought I was throwing a small gathering of die hard fans a bloody zombie bone, but apparently there's almost no closet Resident Evil movie fans around these parts of the Internet. Let's just get this over...
Leeloo Milla Jovovich stares deep into your soul. Last week we discussed which Resident Evil games were the best and worst in the whole series, and as promised, this week we take a break from gaming to debate which Resident E...
The game series debate continues! Last week we ended the Mario series by choosing the all-star of its RPG past and having it battle the pinnacle Mario platformer game to the death. Some disagreed with the two that made the fi...
Last week I told you a Resident Evil series debate would be next week -- surprise! I just couldn't let the opportunity to see these two famous Super Mario games pass by without a huge 1 vs 1 "Mario to the death" showdown deba...
Many castles were pillaged and passed as we went from one Mario platformer game to another last week. Which game's flags gave us the most victory slides? Here are the top results: Super Mario World (33 votes) -- Winner! Supe...
Talk about a nostalgia-fest! Last week had more lengthy bonus question comments than ever before, and I'm pretty sure I read every single one of them. There was so much insight that I even pulled out Wind Waker and replayed t...
Good gaming gods, last week's debate was epic, and I do not use that word lightly. I had to go through all 235 comments twice, just to make sure no tallying mistakes were made. The outcome broke almost every debate record ima...
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 thri...
Last week I introduced a new format for these weekly game debates, and it went great! I used two of the most loved series in the game industry of all time, and the result was just as vicious from both sides as I expected...
Last week's debate turned out pretty close considering each series has opposing goals, but there was plenty of Dtoid Army support on both sides. Here's are the racing results:Twisted Metal series (37 votes) -- Winner!Gra...
Last week's debate will hopefully be a wake up call to those responsible for the Mortal Kombat series' future. The numbers from our microcosm debate poll may show that a small group of people are happy with the series overall...
I guess last week's debate was a Super Smash Bros. battle on stock mode set for 82 lives each -- truly a debate to the death. The result was not pretty, and reminiscent to those times when you were so drunk you could only lif...
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 d...
Last week we stepped on another sports course to watch another industry rivalry. With a long line of games on other consoles in both series' pasts, it was tied for the first half of the votes. However, long before it was time...
Time to tee off and debate until you're tee'd off! From turf to rough we move on from last week's debate to another sports series Dtoid discussion. Debate dare: read the rest of this in your best Madden voice. "Well...
The debate destruction trail continues hot off the heels of Guitar Hero's corpse from last week. Another week, another homicide. This one wasn't as horrible to witness, but it still made you want to watch because you just kne...
Last week I think we killed a game series. No one checked to see if it was breathing, we just all ran in fear and guilt. Could we have done anything to save the series? We might have to make a pact to never tell anyone about ...
Last week we all went down guns ablazin' as everyone duked it out over what the better FPS gun was. One side was armed with a gravity gun, and man did they do a lot of damage. Unfortunately, the other side was equipped with a...
Last week was a fighting genre fight to the death. The clash of old versus new brought out all sorts of supporters and critics. The thought process of many of the comments was logical, balanced, compelling and downright a ple...
Last week we used more Dtoider input and took inFamous through another round of debate. Did it meet its death? Or did it persevere once again? The leader of the votes swayed several times -- just as it did the week before -- ...
After much discussion and deliberation, the previous debate has finally come to an end. I expected an onslaught of opinions from both sides, and I definitely wasn't disappointed, but towards the end of the comments something ...
Last week's debate was the last odd game debate in our almost year long journey! It also ended with one of the best "odd debate" matchups of the entire series, with a legendary multiplayer game with virtually no sto...
Last week's debate could have gone so much worse, and I'm thoroughly pleased that it went as well as it did. I went into the PC odd game debates nervous about what games I could possibly pair up against Portal, since I really...
Last week's debate started off the final odd debate brackets with the first of three PC rounds for the Dtoid Army to vote on. I don't think I could have picked a better rivalry to kick things off with, and the two titans didn...
Last week's debate brought us to the end of the PSP odd game debate brackets with two very deserving games in the finals. The votes were a dead tie half way into the tallying, but in the end one game broke ahead and never loo...
Last week's debate put two distinctly different games against one another, and I have to admit I'm surprised by the outcome. I knew it would be close, but I thought the cult classic PSP game was going to pull out a win. Here ...
Last week's debate was the first round of the PSP odd debate brackets and it was a hell of a fight. For the first many votes, things were completely tied up. Then, as expected, LocoRoco took the early lead and didn't look bac...
The last debate was the DS odd debate finals bracket between two games that had no problem making their way to the third round riding the hands of fan support. Despite a strong start by both sides, here are the results:Henry ...
Last week was another battle between a recent-ish DS game versus an older DS game, and this time the support was for the other side of the fence. Here are the results:Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure (36 votes) -- Go...
Last week was one of the closest debates we've ever had. For the first fifty to sixty comments there was a steady tie as both games refused to back down. Eventually one game's momentum brought home a win, but just barely...
