Somewhat early news, but I refuse to be 5 minutes too late to post a new article again.
Game help supersite GameFAQs.com is having a contest pitting various game characters against one another in a popularity sudden death vote-off.. and next Wednesday, our favorite pirate Guybrush will square off against Shenmue's Ryo Hazuki. For me, it's a tough choice, them being the main characters of easily my 2 favorite games series of all time, but for you, the choice should be obvious.
If Guybrush wins, he'll likely be up against Tomb Raider's Lara Croft, and we certainly can't have him losing there, can we?
If you'd like, take a look at the full contest bracket here.
