Game Debate to the Death! Luigi’s Mansion VS Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker

Last week we finished our PS2 odd debate brackets with a monstrous battle between Metal Gear Solid 2 and Shadow of the Colossus. Despite a few recent landslide wins, I have to say that I’ve never seen so many Dtoiders say “This was a really hard choice” in the comments as I have in the last month.

Last week in particular I heard a lot of different people saying the same thing, and I just want to let everyone know your words aren’t going unnoticed. So, with a huge demand for a Colossus versus MGS 3 debate, I promise that I’ll visit that topic as soon as this odd debate theme is finished for each console. As for last week, here are the results:

  • Shadow of the Colossus (86 votes) — Winner!
  • Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (39 votes)
  • Favorite Colossi:
  • 1st: Phalanx (pictured below)
  • 2nd: Avion, the Bird
  • 3rd: Gaius, the Knight

This week we move on to two new games and a new console. Both games have different gameplay methods of focus, but both have something in similar. Both were surrounded by plenty of initial criticism for not delivering the desired next step of their series (cough, Mario 128 tech demo, sob, sob, sob, cough, Ganondorf fight tech demo, expletive, expletive, expletive, cough).

So how did the two games end up doing? Which combination of gameplay, setting and story did you enjoy more? Which game do you think is better, and why? Give it some serious thought, get some Gamecube childhood friends to share their opinions as well, and check back next week for the winner.

Bonus Question: Would you like to see another Luigi game any time soon? What about a “Celda” game for the Wii?
