Kill Your Babies! (Exhibition): Mangle the Mini-Games!



  • I wake up and both Tin Pin Slammer and Fighter Manager got axed, my soul is wounded.



  • Desert Island Escape (Animal Crossing: New Leaf)
    Hostess Club Manager (yakuza series)
    Forklift Racing (Shenmue)
    Tekken Bowl (Tekken games)
    Galaxy Monkey (Ape Escape)
    Snowboarding (Twilight Princess)
    Chocobo Racing (FFVII)
    Whack-a-Mole (Jak II)
    Mercenaries (Resident Evil 4)
    Tennis (GTA 5)
    Sushi go Round (Pokemon Stadium)

    As someone who played a fair amount of tennis as a kid, digital tennis is not fun.

    Tekken Bowl (Tekken games)

    Chocobo Racing (FFVII)
    Whack-a-Mole (Jak II)
    Mercenaries (Resident Evil 4)
    Sushi go Round (Pokemon Stadium)

    The iteration of this that I played was honestly not that much fun, even despite the fact that I was interested in the concept.

    Chocobo Racing (FFVII)

    I'll keep killing the worst 3D Zelda or anything attached to it.

    Chocobo Racing (FFVII)

    Never played Animal Crossing:NL. Or any other Animal Crossing game.



  • Forklift Racing (Shenmue)
    Tekken Bowl (Tekken games)
    Galaxy Monkey (Ape Escape)
    Chocobo Racing (FFVII)
    Whack-a-Mole (Jak II)
    Mercenaries (Resident Evil 4)

    When playing against computers, it's easy, against other players, it's more based on RNG than skill.



  • Forklift Racing (Shenmue)
    Tekken Bowl (Tekken games)
    Galaxy Monkey (Ape Escape)
    Chocobo Racing (FFVII)
    Whack-a-Mole (Jak II)
    Mercenaries (Resident Evil 4)

    Now I'm fine with whatever ends up winning, nice variety. Nothing against Ape Escape per se.



  • Forklift Racing (Shenmue)
    Tekken Bowl (Tekken games)
    Chocobo Racing (FFVII)
    Whack-a-Mole (Jak II)
    Mercenaries (Resident Evil 4)

    Another example of where the digital version just can't compete with its physical counterpart. Gotta feel those hits.

    Feels like everyone left is a worthy winner! dont think I want to kill any off haha!



  • Forklift Racing (Shenmue)
    Tekken Bowl (Tekken games)
    Chocobo Racing (FFVII)
    Mercenaries (Resident Evil 4)

    The only one in the list I have no affinity for. I'm fine with any of the 3 remaining ones winning.



  • Tekken Bowl (Tekken games)
    Chocobo Racing (FFVII)
    Mercenaries (Resident Evil 4)

    I don't know how it made it this far to be honest. The breeding is somewhat interesting, but the actual racing itself is terrible. Still better than Blitzball though lol.



  • I like both mini-games, and whichever wins, I'm happy.



  • For a minute I thought forklift racing would actually make it! It got further than I thought anyway!



  • Uuh! Excellent finalists! The Mercenaries mode was a lot of fun for some time, but I have to go with Tekken Bowl. That's just such a joyful inclusion in Tekken Tag Tournament. And TTT was even my first PS2 game. So many hours put into that...



  • And we have our final two mini-games! Now that we have our finalists I can now say: Stoked to see Blitzball and Chocobo Racing got nominated. Thought they would be the first to go though.

    Anyway, enough of my prattling! It's time to choose which is the best of the bunch! Which mini-game should all others be modeled after?

    Tekken Bowl (Tekken series)
    Mercenaries (Resident Evil 4)

  • Some days, the last two KYBs in particular, I think I must have way differing opinions on games than 90% of you crazy kids.



  • By a score of 8-3, the definitive mini-game is...

    Tekken Bowl (Tekken series)!

    Thanks to everyone for your votes, posts, and kills!
