Either way, she'll lose to Mario in the semi-finals, which is fine with me. Also, I'm surprised to see Gordan Freeman make it so far, didn't know he was that awesome. I've never played Half-Life so I wouldn't know, but him beating Snake makes me happy. Metal Gear is silly.
To me, it's not fair to question the motivation of either side. Most of the people here are rabid fanboys who vote for their game just out of wanting to prove that theirs is the best, not who fits the given contest better.

Neither side is doing it for the right reasons.
well yes but our cheating was retaliatory in nature and much less of it

So you are saying SurgePox, that instead of voting who would win between the two, they are voting for their favorite game?

Well... Seeing as Bub and Bob blow magical bubbles I would still vote for Samus.

---

I don't completely agree with what gamespot did either. But I am not going to complain about it, it suits me just fine. But everyone knew 4Chan was backing up Bub&Bob with Proxies, and Macros. The proof was on their boards. Then again probably most of every character in the contest had some proxy votes. No doubt. Bub and Bob was just where the majority of it was. I feel sorry for those who actually voted fairly because 4Chan kinda ruined it for them. But what should Gamespot do? Re-do the round? Disqualify any character with people cheating for them? I don't know anything they could have done. Doesn't matter what they did it would be "fair" to some people. Unless of course I am just not thinking of something.

He might have been referring to the Metroid Fanbase as a whole since you can't really determine who cheated or not unless they say, "I cheated."

B&B was sort of an exception, they were only voted through for the amusement of others. On the whole, almost any kind of poll involving the gamespot community just turns into a giant fanboy war. I voted for Bub and Bob, I felt that they deserved some recognition.

and I didn't use proxies or vote more than once, because I'm fair.

I wasn't even talking about cheating in that post, try again.

That is ok if you voted for them, you did it fairly, I just didn't like the whole thing because of 4Chan. Thats why I wanted Samus to win, but Gamespot had to fix it up.

I wouldn't mind if Duke Nukem beat Link. Duke is cool.

I hope Gordon Freeman keeps going.

Meh, I made a stupid argument. Both sides cheated, both were dumb. My side won, so I'm happy.

I didn't cheat either, for the record... not really worth the effort.

Well, both sides wanted to win, but one was cheating in defence because the other was.

Mario vs Link, definately.

Although it could defy our expectations and be Mario vs Gordon Freeman...but yeah, I doubt that.

I don't like how Gordon made it this far. I mean he is good but not semi finals good.

Whay not? He's just like Mario and Link when you think about it. Never says a word. (inb4 Mario and Link grunt)

So they're all pretty silent. Freeman doesn't speak, Link grunts like he's been kicked in the balls really hard, Samus is mostly silent (until now because she's a woman and women always talk) and Mario says stuff occaisionally like "mamma mia!" and "oh yes", hahaha.

Now, I'm just picturing the fights. You can picture Mario vs Samus thanks to SSBB, but Link vs Freeman...

Not talking does not make someone the same. I mean Link and Mario are classic heroes. And then there is Gordon who just stands out like a sore thumb.

Probably that. I'd vote for the Freeman as the best hero.

Is he truly a great hero if he has to keep rescuing the Princess?
