Well then, holy shit. Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, green monsters who live in trash cans, welcome to the 2018 return of the GameRevolution, Royal Rumble, Gaming Edition! We have sixteen fighters from all genres of gaming who are entering a sixteen player tournament. Starting off with the preliminary rounds, quarter finals, semi finals and then, the legendary grand final. Who will win this epic showdown? That depends entirely up to you! Every forty eight hours (as I type this, it's currently Monday the 12th of February, 8:02 AM, ACST time zone) a new round will commence. You will have forty eight hours to submit your votes via the voting poll here on this thread. Obviously, the fighter with the most votes will win the bout! I will personally not be voting unless the votes are tied, then I will randomly vote for one of the two fighters using a number generator (which is how all of these fights are being organized, it's all random). Here are your chosen fighters! (Edit: Structure has been re-organized to show order of battles and who won) PRELIMINARIES: 1. Samus Aran (Metroid) VS Corvo Attano (Dishonored), WINNER: Samus Aran 2. Simon Belmont (Castlevania) VS Viewtiful Joe, WINNER: Simon Belmont 3. Adam Jensen (Deus Ex: Human Revolution) VS Sam Fisher (Splinter Cell), WINNER: Adam Jensen 4. Kratos (God of War) VS Gene (Godhand), WINNER: Gene 5. War (Darksiders) VS Domingo (Shining Force), WINNER: War 6. Kirby (Kirby's Dreamland) VS Toon Link (The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker), WINNER: Kirby 7. Dante (Devil May Cry) VS Jackie Estacado (The Darkness), WINNER: Dante 8. Solid Snake (Metal Gear Solid) VS Vyse (Skies of Arcadia), WINNER: Solid Snake QUARTER FINALS: 1. Samus Aran (Metroid) versus Simon Belmont (Castlevania), WINNER: Samus Aran 2: Adam Jensen (Deus Ex: Human Revolution) versus Gene (Godhand), WINNER: Gene 3. Kirby (Kirby's Dream Land) versus War (Darksiders), WINNER: Kirby 4. Solid Snake (Metal Gear Solid) versus Dante (Devil May Cry), WINNER: Dante SEMI FINALS: 1. Samus Aran (Metroid) versus Gene (Godhand), WINNER: Samus Aran 2. Kirby (Kirby's Dreamland) versus Dante (Devil May Cry), WINNER: Dante FINALS: Samus Aran (Metroid) versus Dante (Devil May Cry), WINNER: Dante (Devil May Cry) AND IT IS ALL OVER! Samus Aran did tremendously well in all of her battles, but unfortunately for her, the final round was just too much as the Son of Sparda dominated the final match of the GR Royal Rumble. Samus fought valiantly until the very end, but the winner, and champion of the GR Royal Rumble Gaming Edition... ...is Dante! Thank you everyone for contributing your nominations, ideas and time to posting on this thread. It's been fun and while I am honestly disappointed to see Dante win (I would have loved to see Samus Aran beat his face down), it's still great to see a winner. It's been a fun thread to try and host. If I ever do one again, I'll try to do it a bit differently. For now, thanks again everyone!
