Re: "Favorite" Video Game Tournament Round #1/Group #2 Poll

Mainstream or not, Fallout 2 had the deeper experience. But I have no qualms against those who voted for Silent Hill 2 because that's also a great game, and Fallout 2 is much more of a "niche" title (it's not intended to be everyone's cup of tea).

To be fair, this isn't even really the first round. It is more the play in games.

2, on the PC, a long time ago.

What irked me is the assumption that just because something is a little more well known (and don't fool yourself, Fallout TWO was a pretty huge release back when it came out) that it's not as great as something that was less mainstream. I just don't like people on their high-horse thinking someone's opinion is invalid based on the incorrect assumption that it's an uninformed opinion. So while they're definitely not even similar games, I certainly prefer the first two Fallout games to all Silent Hill games, except for SH2, which I consider a masterpiece. Shocking, I know...

I think you're overreacting to taffer's post, and honestly I don't find it incorrect to say that more mainstream and well-known titles are going to do better in these polls or contests, especially against a PC only title. You may be an exception, but I don't see why you take it personally.

I'd also have to disagree with you that Fallout 2 was a huge release. It's far less known then the other Interplay RPG's of the era.

Re: "Favorite" Video Game Tournament Round #1/Group #2 Poll

I've played Fallout 1 & 2. Haven't played 3, yet.

I voted for Silent Hill 2.

Don't assume.
