    You must pick one: Gaming edition

    Can't believe we've never tried to start one of these before, given the possibilities.

    Going to start off with an easy one, if only because you'll have already have this conversation already.

    Playstation 4 or X-Box One

    Xbox, primarily down to the controller. Feels a better fit in my hands. Games wise PS has a slight edge, but I prefer Xbox online. So Microsoft just edges it.


    The standard 50/50 question - Fifa or Pro?

    Oooh that depends on which iteration of the game, what console you are playing on.... it's not a simple one for me at all. And I'm not exactly up to date with it either. The last time I played either, though, I would have taken FIFA.

    SNES or SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis?

    That's difficult too SNES had super Mario but Sega had Sonic

    I think (and if I'm wrong dammit) SNES had Mortal Kombat so it gets my vote. Even though the game was practically impossible

    I never owned either by the way, my friends had them.

    N64 or Playstation 1?? Age old question lol

    Mortal Kombat 2 was definitely on the Mega Drive/Genesis, with blood. I think the SNES lacked the gory blood.

    N64 for me, quality over quantity. Better games on the N64, but PS1 had more. They were both superb consoles though.

    Single player campaign or multiplayer modes?

    MK1 in SNES didn't have blood, but MK2 and MK 3 did have blood. For Sega, MK 1, 2 and 3 all had blood (but for 1 you needed a code).

    Here is MK2 side by side. I think once SNES added blood, then their game was better. But that's just me.



    Okay on to the question...

    For me, Single Player Campaignall the way. I love playing against people as much as the next person, but if I can't enjoy a game on it's own, then the game ain't fun. Give me the game, me, and time, and I'm all for it. Multiplayer can make for some fun nights, but if a game doesn't have a good single player campaign, is it even a game bro.

    Okay... since this is a wrestling board...

    WWE Raw series, or WWE 2K series

    Is 2k the same as the smackdown series? If so I fucking loved here comes the pain so I'd go with that any day. So much fun putting people thru tables with various finishers like Gore, Pedigree and of course F5.

    Command and conquer generals or tiberium wars?

    Anyone wanna take this one? I never played much command and conquer so I'd be picking at random really.

    Based on the little bit I know probably Arkham Asylum.


    Choice between two of the best-selling action/adventure games on the PS1.

    Metal Gear Solid or Tomb Raider?

    Metal Gear Solid. Have only really been a fan of Tomb Raider with the new reboot a few years ago.

    But going off that theme...

    Tomb Raider or Uncharted?

    Uncharted comes after the era when I was playing that kinda game, so it's pretty much by default but Tomb Raider

    Zelda or Final Fantasy?

    Zelda. Consistently brilliant. The worst Zelda game is probably on a par with some of the best FF games.

    Better controller:

    Playstation

    or

    Xbox

    (For the record, the Gamecube was the best ever, but PS and Xbox haven't changed a lot so makes sense to ask about those).

    I loved the original and 360 controller specifically for the thumbstick, up until ps4 the playstation thumbsticks felt far too light and springy.

    Mass Effect or Dragon Age? Two major titles from my favorite game maker out there Bioware.

    Mass Effect. I prefer futuristic games over dungeons and dragon type games. The original trilogy was fantastic (personally I think 3 gets a bad rap because of the ending, it's a superb game), Andromeda grew on me as I played it, but wasn't quite on the same level.

    Which GTA Character would you most likely want to hang out with:

    Trevor
    Michael
    Franklin

    I think all those guys where pretty messed up but I like my life so have to rule out Trevor, Michael would be pretty j boring so all up I'd have to go with Franklin who would ultimately probably be pretty chill.

    Glad to see another person who loved ME3. Really amazing climax to the series with a number of genuinely touching story payoffs. Honestly I didn't hate the ending as much as everyone it there either although I suspect at that point I was so invested in the characters that they could have done a lot of terrible things and I'd have still liked it.

    Better FPS

    Halo or COD?

    I didn't like the ending, per se, but it's not as if I was outraged. I think after three games, you do need closure, and by that I mean a happy ending. Don't think that happened in ME3.

    I enjoy Halo more so than Halo, again same reason as before: I prefer futuristic games

    Best MGS game?

    I
    II
    III
    IV
    V
