I thought the All Time Greatest Hero tournament thingy was pretty fun, but I don't think there was a thread for it, so.....All Time Greatest Villain

All you have to do is make a bracket (if you're a GS member) from the villains that the GS has chosen, 10 of which were voted upon by GS site users/members. Winner gets the Ultimate Home Gaming Setup, including shiny new consoles, games, and a 3D HDTV! Hopefully my bracket won't be as miserable as my Hero one was. Good luck to any of you who participate, and feel free to post your bracket choices!!

Bracket Selection: August 15th-26th
Round 1a Voting: Augsut 26th-30th
Round 1b Voting: August 30th-September 2nd
Round 2 Voting : September 2nd-September 7th
Sinister 16: September 7th-10th
Evil Eight: September 10th-14th
Fearsome Four: September 14th-17th
Final Battle: September 17th

Vergil as in Vergil from Devil May Cry?
Yes ma'am, the very same. I guess I should put the gmaes each villain is from next to their name.

Yeah I thought the same thing with the hero one, but I was dead wrong. I think Pac-Man beat Cloud.

I have Kerrigan winning it all.

I wanna know why General Lionwhyte is on there. He wasn't even the real villain.

Well after the awesomeness that was Arkham Asylum, I can under stand the Joker being in the running. And there have been so many Star Wars games ever since A New Hope came out, so Darth Vader is just as much a video game villain as he is a movie villain.

By that logic Freeza, for example, should be on the list. There have been more DBZ games than Star Wars and Batman combined, and he ranks as one of the most popular and greatest DBZ villains. There are probably even more examples like that too.

Asks the average person on the street and they'll most likely know Darth Vader and the Joker from their movies/comic books, rather than the games. It's not that I have anything against them, I'd react the same way if they start ranking comic/movie villains and they stick a game character in there because he appeared in a comic/movie.

Seems like a way to just sound like you're being diverse when you thought Arkham Asylum was really damn good. Which it was, but seriously, just say he's from AA. Also, they put Ares from God of War but not Zeus? Even Persephone was better than him in Chains of Olympus.

Frieza.

Definitely voting Kefka. Though these polls usually end up with some retarded result anyways.
