EZA Community Hype Jousting - First half 2017
Fridge-man last edited by Fridge-man
This is a flavoured attempt at deciding this community's most anticipated game for the first half of 2017! Much like a jousting tournament we will pin two games head to head, the winner will be decided by a poll which you will be able to vote on within a certain time frame.
I have gathered most major releases in a list which are either confirmed or believed to release within the first half of this year. The list is as follows:
Sniper Elite 4
Halo Wars 2
Horizon Zero Dawn
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Ghost Recon Wildlands
Danganronpa 1+2 reload
Mass Effect Andromeda
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3
Dragon Quest Heroes II
Fire Emblem: Shadows of Valentia
South part fractured but whole
Styx: Shards of darkness
Vikings - Wolves of Midgard
Hand of Fate 2
I will leave this list open for 24-ish hours. If I have missed a game, let me know. If there's a game that is not going to release in the first half of 2017, let me know. Once the list is done, there's nothing changing it
The games that will be pinned against each other will be randomised. This is not a fair system, but that's not the point. The OP will be updated with results, I will post the polls in this thread running.
I am well aware that February is a mere day away, but hey, I didn't crack this idea until just now. Better luck next time, me.
Peer review the list.
Games have been added to the list. List is finalized. Seeding is beginning.
Graphics done. Seeding done. VOTING BEGIN.
Voting - Round two!
Investigate foul play. Give up. Proceed.
Voting - Round three!
Voting - Round four!
Tie between Persona 5 and Nier: Automata. Got a deciding vote from the EZA discord group. Figured this was a better and faster solution than redoing a vote, delaying the final round.
Final round is on. The EZA Forums most anticipated game for the first half of 2017 will be decided.
Persona 5 is declared victor of the EZA Community Hype Jousting tournament for the first half of 2017.

I really really like this idea of just pitting two games in a duel against each other like this and allowing everyone to vote. It'll also be interesting to gauge the community's taste. This would be a cool format for other community games in the future (i.e. best characters, etc). Good on you!
That said, it's not gonna feel good voting against games I am really excited about.

It's really important that you seed the brackets correctly.
Oh random? This might be a train wreck. Lol
I guess we'll see.

This list kinda hurts since two of my most anticipated games of the year already dropped last week. That said Sonic Mania is still on the horizon, so I definitely have a horse in this race.

Awesome idea @Fridge-man! I can't wait to see how things shape up. There are only three games listed I care for, and if I've learned anything in my time being an Easy Allies community member, it's my favorites probably won't get far. Ah well. Like the countdown lists and KYB threads, I like these kinds of things. Keep us posted!

@TokyoSlim I'll consider doing a manual seed!
@DeweyDTruman Yeah it's too bad I didn't think of this earlier. RE7 and Gravity Rush 2 would have been nice to have on the list.

@Nillend I didn't know there was a new Styx coming out, I haven't played the second one yet, but after Of Orcs and Men I'm interested for sure in playing it.
It's been 24ish hours! @Nillend 's changes has been added. I'll begin to work on the seeds. Hopefully we'll get some polling done tonight!
I ended up doing the seed myself. Say about it what you will, but it's now locked and never to be changed. Since there were graphics made and the entire first match up is revealed I will do a poll for each one directly. Reason for this is that I figured most people would have made up their mind pretty quickly once they've seen the match ups. So here goes:
LINKS FOR VOTING
Persona 5 vs Styx: Shards of Darkness
Snipperclips vs Tekken 7
Nioh vs Vikings - Wolves of Midgardt
Little Nightmares vs Outlast 2
Portal Knights vs Ghost Recon Wildlands
Dragon Quest Heroes II vs For Honor
South Park: The Fractured But Whole vs Rime
Arms vs Nier: Automata
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild vs Hand of Fate 2
Dirt 4 vs Halo Wars 2
Prey vs Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
Splatoon 2 vs Sonic Mania
Horizon: Zero Dawn vs Toukiden 2
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 vs Sniper Elite 4
Danganronpa 1.2 Reload vs Mass Effect Andromeda
Yooka-Laylee vs Injustice 2
Happy voting, kiss your babies goodbye while you can.

Voted. The most intriguing matchups for me were:
South Park vs. Rime
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 vs. Sniper Elite 4 (Purely because it was sniper v sniper)
Danganronpa 1.2 Reload vs. Mass Effect
Yooka-Laylee vs. Injustice 2
And even though I voted for my babies, it was in a mournful, "I'm sending you away for your own good" sort of way.

@FF7Cloud Could you consider start using capital letters and punctuation? Everyone else use them.

@Sentinel-Beach Sorry, I'll try grammar was never a strong point of mine.

Voted. This is a cool idea!
I'm thinking of running this first round until Friday. Just because there are so many votes, and hoping more people will get to see it and vote before moving on.

Very cool, I like this a lot! Been wanting to do something like this with movies, but I don't think the temperature is right yet.
