PSXE Best Of The Best Poll Update: Metal Gear Solid Leads The Way
Well, the first round of PSXE's Best of the Best Action/Adventure title is over, and as expected, Metal Gear Solid easily took the #1 seed for the second round.
As for the rest of the top 5, it was a pretty big battle, with only Resident Evil 2 slightly separating itself from the rest of the pack. Sypro: Year of the Dragon snuck into the fifth and final qualifying spot for this week, although for the life of us, we can't figure out why Castlevania: Symphony of the Night didn't make it. Widely considered to be one of the best PS1 games of all time, we firmly believed it would end up going head to head with MGS for the overall action/adventure victory, but...well, it's not up to us. It's up to you, the loyal reading public, who would rather vote for Spyro than Symphony. 'sigh' Oh well, we all have our own opinions, and it'll certainly be interesting to see which title nabs the Silver and Bronze medals at the end of next week. You never know what can happen; in the RPG competition, Chrono Cross barely made it into the top 5, then somehow came up and snagged the Bronze in the final week. Here are the five action/adventure games that made it into the second round:
Metal Gear Solid
Oddworld: Abe's Exodus
Resident Evil 2
Sypro: Year of the Dragon
The poll for Round 2 is up and ready to go, so place your votes now! As usual, you can always discuss the results in official thread in our forums. Which one of those final 5 really is second best to MGS...?
