    The Companion Cube is beating Crow from The Longest Journey.

    I mean, I loves me some Portal and all, but... aaaargh.

    And the dog from Fable 3 is beating Frog from Chrono Trigger! AAAAAAAAARGH!

    I love Ace Attorney :/

    It's the "Ace Attorney" series, not the "Phoenix Wright" series. Phoenix is only the main character in the first three games!!!

    But yeah, I ended up voting for Murray.

    i don't mind the companion cube winning that one. just the fact that valve was able to come up with an inanimate object to be CONSIDERED in that contest is amazing in itself. and its even one of the favorites to win. thats just insane.

    Murray is chaotic. I can't let him rise to power!
  • edited September 2011
    So we're clear, every time a contest like this happens 4chan always floods the votes so the most obscure character possible wins while the obvious winners get eliminated early. (If I remember correctly they got Bub and Bob to win "Best Hero" and General Raam to win "Best Villain.") I wouldn't worry too much about whoever has to go up against Luigi, since he's obviously the first person they're going to take out. (They're trying to get Launchpad McQuack to win this contest, if you're curious.)

    Anyway, I'm sorry, but I can't vote. I love Murray and Maya. How am I supposed to choose? :(

    DAMN RIGHT!!!..... I voted Murray.
  • edited September 2011
    No, his rise to power is psychotic! He can't hold that much power, he can't wield it!

    YOU SHALL NOT PASS!!!!

    Murray definitely wins this round for me. Though I went through the other voting pools and also voted for Garrus, Dogmeat, and the Companion Cube. Just because I could.

    Barry Wheeler or bust.

    Sorry Murray, but no

    Kind of sad/weird how the thing is filled with characters that I either don't know or don't care about, and yet the few that I do have been paired together to force me to make hard decisions

    they always split. /v/ always wants on character /b/ always wants another.

    They should have a 'greatest incarnation of satan' because Murray would win tonight.

    So far, blue always gets voted lower than red.

    You don't remember correctly.

    Best Hero was won by Gordon Freeman.

    Now Murray's up against Luigi! Go vote!
  • edited September 2011
    Listen, I like Murray, but how the bloody hell is he beating Luigi?
  • edited September 2011
    Listen, Garrus, buddy, I like you, but don't you dare beat Minsc. He leads with blade and boot! Boo takes care of the details.

    He's beating Luigi because Luigi has very little characterization besides the things he exclaims when he falls off a cliff. Or, at least, that's what I'm telling myself. I don't understand it either. But anything that gets Murray closer to ruling the Universe is okay by me.

    VOTE FROG 2011!

    I like Otacon okay and all, but Frog cuts mountains in half.

    not that i disagree, but it was mostly because of 4chan. i obviously voted for murray tho :cool:

    Look, I like Murray, but I'm afraid I'm gonna have to vote for Luigi this time. I just like him better, plus, he's a lot more useful than murray. Let's face it, there's only so much that a talking skull can do.

    Shitstorm in 3... 2... 1...
  • edited September 2011
    I don't like the poll, every one knows Luigi. I didn't think Murray had a chance as much as I love him. It's mario...Mario...
  • edited September 2011
    It seems that Luigi is now taking the lead and walloping Murray! WTH?
  • edited September 2011
    It's a game called Mario Bros, how could any one expect Murray to win? I'm sorry.
  • edited September 2011
    What the hell, why do people vote for Luigi? Murray is so much better than Luigi. Seriously, I don't get these contests.
  • edited September 2011
    For one thing, about a quadrillion more people have played a Mario game then have played a Monkey Island game.
  • edited September 2011
    And for another thing, people have their own opinions.

    Le gasp! Surely such a travesty couldst never take place?
  • edited September 2011
    I voted for Murray. However, I think that pairing Murray against Luigi on such an early stage is unfair for both characters. Murray vs. Luigi should have been the CLIMAX!
  • edited September 2011
    Well, with ladder things like this, they tend to pair the more popular characters with less popular characters at the beginning so that the ending rounds will be between really popular characters and thus more exciting. Of course, that doesn't always happen.

    It's a bit like a fencing tournament. In the first direct elimination they place the B-rated fencers against the complete noobs so the new people get eliminated early and don't end up winning the tournament via a fluke.

    And now Luigi seems to be losing against Dogmeat from Fallout...what a waste.
    I'm pretty sure Murray would have won that fight.
  • edited September 2011
    GAH! Why did they have to pair up Garrus and HK-47?! WHY?!

    I can't decide. I love them both so much...
  • edited September 2011
    I understand choosing Dogmeat over Luigi even less than I understand choosing Luigi over Murray. It's like, the less of an actual personality they have, the better. Dogmeat isn't even very useful in Fallout 3.

    And how can HK be losing to a fleshy meatbag like Garrus? :(
  • edited September 2011
    I don't know. After much debate, I chose HK-47.
  • edited September 2011
    But at las Murray is just but a poor skull...

    No longer demonic, no longer famed...at last...
  • edited September 2011
    So in the final, Launchpad is poised to win the thing now? Seriously, do the majority think he is the best sidekick?

    When gamers congregate, do they say "Hey, remember McQuack? I sure wish we would get more Duck Tales games, because Launchpad is awesome!"

    I seriously don't get it.
  • edited September 2011
    Launchpad is beloved by anyone who watched Duck Tales or Darkwing Duck growing up, I guess.
  • edited September 2011
    What sweet irony I have just fallen into a Darkwing Duck phase, and I like Launchpad.

    Just to clarify, I haven't voted.
