Help Guybrush! Vote for him on Gamespot

posted by OldSchoolC on - last edited - Viewed by 745 users

Gamespot is having a character battle over the next month or so, and right now until September 4th Guybrush is facing off against "Wander" from Shadow of the Colossus and losing! But not by much... Multiple battles are going on at once, so scroll over to find his pairing.

I didn't see any other threads on this, so if I missed it, I apologize. Now go vote!

For Monkey Island!

  • Sackboy was on there... that is the most ridiculous because they are supposed to be a blank ragdoll that you customize to your liking. Its almost like having a random Sims character if you think about it.

    Makes me think it was more about the actual game and less about the actual characters.

  • That and popularity, tbh.

    I mean as someone else said. Steam posted an announcement, the ones which popup when you login your steam account, to vote for Gordon. Meaning everyone who logs on steam, which is thousands of users, will have seen it, and alot of which will have voted.

  • @Rawr said: thousands of users

    Actually, it's more like MILLIONS of users. So yeah. Mario is soooo screwed.

    I would actually be willing to put money on that if all mario games (or games he appeared in) were summed in any given day said sum would be higher than that of those who use steam, and the total that read any of those messages (which I should turn off, if I can) would be lower than those that use steam regularly.

    Not during such a small time period though. :P

    There will be millions of users, but not all of them will log on in time to see that message I guess.

  • no offense but, this poll is not only lame its rigged so that only specific characters were added. Which me no likes,
    why not let people pick ANY character...sigh
    EDIT: need proof this is lame? look at the two up for best char

    mario and.. wtf is gordon freeman doing there... he is in all of one game split in two parts and he isnt even SPECIAL or cool, just a lost dude in the wrong place at the right time..

    maro... well , i loved the bugger until after n64 era... everything since has been down hill
    (tho the bowsers inside story DS was a decent attempt!)

    seriously gordon freeman vs link and gordon won?
    wwwwow...

    My thoughts exactly

    Steam has between 800,000 and 1,500,000 users online at any given time.

    And the reason Gordon won, in addition to the Steam message, is that people are SICK of Link and Mario and Cloud winning every single contest every single year.

    Interesting, not seen that page before.

    Yeah, but that doesn't mean Gordon deserved it. :P

    It's all popularity. DX

  • These are kind of meaningless.
