Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

Tidal wave, cause shooting water gets you nowhere.

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

So yeah, let's talk about the games that people praise that didn't do it for you. Mine was Eternal Darkness. I was expecting a game that would manage to scare me while also playing tricks on my mind. Unfortunately, I thought it was a standard, Tomb Raider-esque action game. The sanity effects were cool, once, but it soon became a game that I didn't want to finish. It just got repetitive. I'll stick to Resident Evil for now.

I never got the Metal Gear craze.

I'm forcing myself to finish the Halo series after not liking 2.

Final Fantasy. I haven't liked a FF game since 7.

Zelda Twilight Princess. I may just hate the motion controls. I want to try it out on the Gamecube before completely writing it off.

Madden games.

Pretty much any WW2 shooter. enough already, give me creative scenarios. COD4, yes, COD5, no.

I have many more.

Zelda: Twilight Princess.

I hadn't played a Zelda game since the original, but it was such a "necessary" Wii game, I figured I'd try it out. Just completely not my bag. I think I got about 5 hours in, and gave it up. I didn't find it fun at all, didn't care about the story, didn't like the controls, didn't like the puzzles, didn't like the whole wolf-transformation thing, and thought that sidekick imp was obnoxious as hell.

Twilight Princess.

I didn't mind the wolf thing but I found it was too dark. Especially when using the wolf senses. Nearly turned it off and stopped playing completely when I had to search for bugs in the blackness.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

For me it's The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker.

Words alone can barely describe how much I LOATH that game. (and I'm pretty sure SOMEONE is going to give me flak for this)

Oh, and before anyone says it: No I didn't hate it for the Cell Shading. In fact that was one of the few things I liked about it.

I also don't get the whole 'GTA' thing.

It's a secret to everybody

Agreed on Oblivion. My friends are into it and I tried it, and really tried to get into it but I just couldn't. Maybe I didn't spend enough time with it or something but I just didn't click with it.

i never understood why everyone liked resident evil 4 ... i mean, it was ok.. but.. after reading/seeing all that praise, i expected a lot more..

same with the morrowind/oblivion series, its just too open. and the characters are hideous.

Compared to Wind Waker, Twilight Princess was a disappointment. I didn't pay $44.99 (Used, I might add) for a GC version of Ocarina of Time with no time-changing element or Ocarina. And Navi's annoyingness is preferable to the fact that Midna is a total bitch.

I didn't like that game either.

I absolutely hate water levels, especially 3d ones. So the whole game was just one huge turn off to me.

Does anyone see City-Swimmer? Is he gliding beneath the silver water? Is he creeping 'round a corner, hugging a wall, silent as a shadow in the dark?
