Last week we argued over two early 3D adventure games of completely different genre backgrounds, and the decision was overwhelmingly in favor of story and artistic expression over action and excitement. Here are the results:
- Silent Hill (51 votes) — Winner!
- Tomb Raider (16 votes)
Silent Hill‘s movie also got more praise in the comments than the Tomb Raider film, although there was a split debate over which series was currently progressing more smoothly, with slightly more support of Tomb Raider’s recent rebirth.
This week we move on to a battle between two famous PlayStation sequels. Both games featured ample amounts of death and destruction in memorable performances of their time. However, while one game slowly found gore in dark corners of spooky environments, the other fought evil on wheels in fast paced environments. For every way that Twisted Metal 2 offered unharnessed adrenaline and excitement to its players, Resident Evil 2 matched it in controlled events of player anxiety and fear.
How will you make your decision this week? Which game do you think is better, and why? Give it some serious thought, get some PlayStation friends to share their opinions as well, and check back next week for the winner and the conclusion of the PlayStation odd debate brackets.
