Sacrifice one TV show or game to save another

If you could sacrifice one tv series or game you enjoy to renew a series or get a sequel what would you choose?



I'd Sacrifice Dexter for Terra Nova


I'd Sacrifice Assassins Creed for a Rule of Rose 2

  • That would be the one. The third season went a bit astray trying a last gasp to find a wider audience, but the core of the show was excellent.

    How can so many of you be willing to get rid of Portal?! It is, in my (the right) opinion, the best game ever made.

    @Darth Marsden said: But Portal 2 isn't a great game. :)

    No, it is.

    I agree with you on that.

    @TomPravetz said: No, it is.


    I don't agree with byou on that. Portal 2 is quite bad. I don't need it. Just put the Editor in Portal 1 and it will be fine.

    It may be amazing, but it's also only 3 hours long. I prefer my games to last longer than an evening.

    This is the internet and you made a typo. Therefore, I won this argument. My opinion is now fact.

    That's what makes it so great, though! Sure, it could carry on and on and on, but then it'd just run itself dry. It stops at the perfect time, right when your at the peak of fun.

    But see, it's short and doesn't outlast its welcome. I tend to favor more compact games because then I don't spend the end of it relieved that it's over, but rather anxious to go back to the beginning and play it again.

    For instance, when I finished my Baldur's Gate II playthrough I was practically dancing on the ceiling. Two months of playing the same game does that to me.

  • Woah! Chillax, guys. I'm not saying Portal's a bad game - I wouldn't sacrifice it if I did - it's just that I find the shortness of it is slightly off-putting. That's all. I enjoy games that have a huge amount of depth to them more than a three-hour romp. Also, I play about half a dozen games at the same time, so burnout's not really an issue :p

    OK, I'd sacrifice everything Tim Schafer makes for the rest of his life in exchange for a decent Ultima game.

  • @Alcoremortis said: But see, it's short and doesn't outlast its welcome.

    It has the perfect length for a game like that.
    Portal 2 is way too long (you could split it right in the middle and make 2 better games out of it just by doing that) and has these horrible hose-like levels with the blue annoyance orb in the first half of the game. Those aren't fun to replay at all.

    That just made me smile. You are desperate.

    Now I can't remember the original!

    Anyway, I'd sacrifice all future episodes of doctor who for a single season with the 8th Doctor.
