Weekly Video Game Franchise DEATH BATTLE! [Nintendo]






Welcome one and all to the first week of Franchise DEATH BATTLES where we are going to show what video game franchise PC likes the most! This will take a couple of weeks/months to complete, and thus, you will get to choose between much video game franchises to see your favourites! Now, if you'd like to see what this is all about, feel free to read the rules below:

Spoiler:
- Every week, there will be a poll attached, with different video games. Each thread will have different video games from different franchises and from different companies like Nintendo, Sega, Capcom, and so on.
- You are not restricted to one vote - you can vote as many video game favourites as you like!
- In the event of a tie at the end of the week, I, Aura Blackquill will have the tie-breaking vote, just to have a clear winner!
- Frequent voters will receive an emblem featuring the winning video game at the end!
- Feel free to explain who you voted for, and why on this thread!
- Any questions? Feel free to ask me in VMs or PMs!


So, as said, this week will focus on the nintendo franchises, so choose your favourite nintendo series of games, and the winner will be posted on Thursday, January 9th!

Credits: Inspiration for this idea goes to the Favourite Pokemon Tournament. Vote for your favourite pokemon there too!

There are many Nintendo series that I've loved and played for years now, but Pokémon will always remain my favourite.

Ha, you even have the Fatal Frame series up there. I might be the only who actually votes for them.

Voted for Kirby, F-Zero, Star Fox, Mario, Legend of Zelda, Super Smash Brothers, Kid Icarus, Donkey Kong, and of course, Pokémon. Would've voted for some of the others, but I'm not too familiar with them, though.

Animal Crossing, Kirby, and Pokemon get my votes as those are one of the only series I've played more than just one or two games of. Pokemon has been an addiction since I was a child while AC is great for relaxation. Kirby is adorable and an overall enjoyment to play!

Ugh, I just picked Pokemon because I hadn't read the bloody thread so I thought you could only do one. I'd have been among the most likely to go with multiple ones, too... X(

I voted for Kid Icarus and Pokémon! They're my two favourite game series to date from Nintendo and I've love to see more of them (especially the former!). I was considering The Legend of Zelda too, but I've not played nearly enough of the series to know much about it haha.

BANNED

At least there's Snake ri-oh wait, Nintendo franchises.

Wario Mario or Metroid should win. Only big name franchise on the list without a single bad game in the mainline series. (No sorry, don't know no Other M or Sunshine) but nah, gotta be on a Pokemon forum.

of course, the real winner is Rhythm Heaven. So good it's not even on the list

The only downside is that SSBB left me really dissapointed x)
Although I did vote for it because I'm a huge SSBM fan and I play it competitively

I was hesitant on voting for Smash because Melee is really the only one that's actually brilliant. 64 is very light on content, despite having an amazing combat system and Brawl was basically the other extreme. So much content, but the combat left much to be desired.

All the other series I voted for had at least two games that I'd consider amazing. (if not masterpieces) F-Zero has X and GX, Advance Wars has the first two, Donkey Kong has the GB game and Donkey Kong Country 2, Metroid has Super Metroid and Metroid Prime. Then you got Punch Out and Wario which don't have a single game that's less than amazing.

Huh. I don't like 64 because no side attacks, and I actually enjoy Brawl more than Melee (despite growing up with Melee and getting good at it) if Smash Balls, which are broken, are turned off. But I guess if you want it totally skill-based (which I don't), Melee's the way to go.

Animal Crossing
Fire Emblem
Kirby
Pokemon
Super Smash Bros.

I've played a little bit of all of them (Pokemon reigning supreme as I have just about all of the main games). I was going to pick something like Yoshi too, but I haven't played a Yoshi game; I've only played him through SSB and the Mario Party/Sports spinoffs. Yoshi's fantastic in those games, haha, my childhood right there. SSBB was a bit hard to get used to when playing with the wiimote.

Sad face for no Final Fantasy. Sure they went to PlayStation when VII rolled around, but they were all Nintendo before that. I'll just give my vote to Zelda then. :P
