What the hell?

Falcon 4.0 beats SimCity 3000? I never even played SC3000 (last SC game I had was 2000) and even I know that's not correct.

Come to think of it, I never even played Falcon 4. I played Falcon 3, though. I thought that's what we were talking about, because those two were out around the same time.

Come to continue thinking about it, how can this be "old game survivor" if the games you're talking about are still sold at near-full-retail price (SC3000, at least)? When I think "old game survivor" I think, at the very least:

SC2000 vs. Falcon 3.0. (SC2000!)

Or perhaps:

Star Control 2 vs. Wing Commander

In essence, I guess what I'm saying is that this entire contest shall be considered invalid, and therefore I am pronouncing it NULL AND VOID.

BOOOO!

You don't have to explain your opinion on old game survivor, but it helps.

SC3000 and Falcon 4.0 are both copywrite 1998. So that's five years ago, almost, kind of old.

Wait a sec, so a guy who played Sim City TWO THOUSAND and Falcon THREE DOT ZERO is stating that there's no possible way that Sim City THREE THOUSAND can be inferior to Falcon FOUR DOT ZERO?

Oh! Ohh!!! Happy DAY, then!! What next, your opinion that Madden '97 is better than Front Page Sports: Football Pro 96, because Madden 2003 is better than FPS:FP 99? Of course not, you don't play sports games. But still, that was biting commentary, because the only version of FPS:FP that was inferior to even the best version of Madden was 99! Because it was so buggy! 99 I mean! Yea!

Anyway, Sim City 3000 is know by gamers worldwide as being an example of a game that got worse only because the team had reached the zenith with the previous version. Like: how come there's never been an improved version of M.U.L.E.? The reason is that a better version cannot be made. Dani got it right the first time.

So maybe next time when you are shitting all over the thread and taking poor Comedy of Savings there (who, admittedly, probably doesn't "really" exist, so to hell with him) to task you should play the games before chastising him.

Oh, and CoS: I bought those CD-Rs that you mentioned and they charged my credit card four times. I hate you, and everything you stand for! Still, if they had only charged me once I guess it would have been a good deal.

Reached the zenith? I mean, "reached the pinnacle." Zenith? That's just non-sensible. "Zenith." Ugh.

Five years ago is "almost, kind of old."

I can only infer from this that "Dishbringer" is approximately seven years old.

Wait, if you want to rig things like that you need to do it properly. Allow me to step in here.

(Here you can arbitrarily set Links 2001 as the winner. If you must. I do know that Forbidden Forest was better than Links LS, the last golf game I bought. Tiger Woods 2001 is a piece of shit because you CAN CONTROL THE DIRECTION OF THE BALL IN-FLIGHT. Even Mario games eventually stopped letting that happen to their protagonist. Tiger Woods 2002 does not have that feature, so you can make a real argument as to whether or not the elimation of that much cheese puts it on the level of Links LS, or if you really want to get up in someone's dander, the Forbidden Forest.)

Holy Shit! I'm older than someone on the BBS!
What about those fucking brilliant old Brodurbund Talking Books? I had a warez CD that had, like, 10 of them on it or something. They were fucking great.

Impossible Mission II wins!

Forbidden forest was kinda lame, the most you had to do was just walk around and kill things. ( Which is pretty much every other game of that time)

I.M. II was a (sort of ) thinking game. Much more involved. Much better.



oh, I know..

No, wait, you have to include the previous winner in your new matchup. Otherwise, it's not much of a survivor, just a "win and go home" thing.

But that's ok, we're just starting out. So for the last one noted:

SUPER HUEY II WINS!!!
