The lights are on
It's time once again for the Super Replay Showdown. If you remember last year's inaugural tournament, you'll remember the rules. Several Game Informer editors (last year had eight entries, this year features ten) get a chance to choose the game that they'd most like to see as our next Super Replay. Then, they all compete in a tournament of random multiplayer gaming challenges to see which editor reigns supreme. Whoever wins the tournament gets to sit in on a full playthrough of the game they chose.
In the video below, you'll get a chance to see what games each of us will be fighting for. Also, I'm totally going to win the whole thing again.
Email the author Dan Ryckert, or follow on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and Game Informer.
Awesome! Dan FTW!
Ben Reeves or Joe Juba win this, I beg you :)
Why did I pick a van. Hilarious!
Not basing this on the editors themselves, but the quality of the games, I am Team Juba all the way. A good open-world game is what Replay needs. As for RPGs, I don't think anyone would mind a 40-hour Morrowind Super Replay, or a FF7 one.
If I had a terminal disease, my wish would...pr, ah screw it, definitely be to participate in one of these. That being said, someone please stop indigo prophecy from winning! I actually quite like the game, but if Reiner wins Cameron won't shut up about it all (bleep) year.
Reiner! You must win this!
haha cant wait to see this. im picking and cheering Dan "the king" Lawl...er.. i mean Ryckert all the way.
I think they should let Andy choose the final challenge/round for the guys.
I'm rooting for Reiner. I would really like to see a Super Replay of Indigo Prophecy. A couple years ago me and another person were going to make a Let's Play video of some older games and that was one that I suggested. I hope he wins!
I would really like to see Joe, Reiner, or Ben win this tournament for their games. It would be pretty funny if Dan won again though. I just worry he might get a little out of control.
Not gonna lie, I REALLY want Cork to win. Chibi Robo was one of those great hidden gems that no one played that would make for a great super replay. It's freakin' weird, obscure, and an all around great conversation starter. Also, Cork is funny. Reiner winning would be awesome, too.
And Dan, your a great human being. But no.
Come on Grim Fandangle!
I'm rooting for Kim and Reiner! And also for Dan to totally get destroyed and humiliated so he can stop being an ass about this.
Go Reeves! This is your year!
Grim Fandango, Bully, or Indigo Prophecy. Never got to play any of them but would love to see GI play them :)
There can be only "One"!!!
Going for Dan on this one, all the others look to be boring. Replays for half an hour of a great game sure, not bad but many hours of watching someone play the same game is just tedious, I'd rather spend the time PLAYING the game. So Indigo Prophecy or something similar wins, then it's a skip for me. Saying that Ninja Gaiden could be fun to watch if he sucks at it.
Luigi's Mansion is an exception because they can have fun with it but overall, just pick something terrible that way at least there is a laugh to be had.
I want Joe to win because I've never played Bully and I always hear that it's a good game.
