    Returning for the second year, it's the video game character showdown!! Last year was really fun, and hopefully we can have as much success as we did last year. The rules are unchanged from last year, and here they are:

    1) Pick 8 video game characters from any game who you want to have in the showdown. When you nominate them, please list the series in which they are from (ex: Sub-Zero, Mortal Kombat). List them even for the obvious ones, it makes my life easier.

    2) The characters MUST have originated from video games. This means Darth Vader, Homer Simpson, Spiderman, etc, are not welcome in the tournament. If there is any confusion, Pokémon are welcome.

    3) No M.U.G.E.N characters, for the same reason

    4) Only one "form" of the character from the series. For example: Toon Link and Link are the same person, as well as Devil Jin/Jin Kazama, Adult Link/Kid Link, etc. If you are still confused, just post and I'll correct you if necessary.

    5) The character does NOT have to be a playable character, they can be who ever you want (as long as they are not too obscure)

    6) In case of a tie, I'll have the tie breaker vote (for the first few rounds)

    The tournament will have 128 characters. Here are my nominations:

    Sol Badguy (Guilty Gear)
    Amiterasu (Okami)
    Auron (Final Fantasy)
    Mewtwo (Pokémon)
    Geno (Super Mario RPG)
    Viewtiful Joe (Viewtiful Joe)
    Wander (Shadow of the Colossus/Ico)
    Raziel (Legacy of Kain)

    I'll start this as soon as the nominations are all in

    Here's some you wouldn't normally consider...

    1) Bill Willaimson (Red Dead Redemption)
    2) Ezio (Assassin's Creed II)
    3) Farah (Prince of Persia: The Sands of TIme [Game])
    4) Chloe Fraser (Uncharted 2)
    5) Sackboy (LittleBigPlanet)
    6) Morrigan (Dragon Age: Origins)
    7) Emperor Duviculus [I think that's how you spell his name] (Brutal Legend)
    8 )Altair (Assassin's Creed) -- You have no idea how close I was to putting Leonardo DaVinci and crediting Assassin's Creed 2

    EDIT, I changed number 2 from Hephaestus to Ezio. I feel Ezio is more of a badass, whereas Hephaestus makes badass weapons

    Toon Link does not count Mattay, he is still the blond young hero in green from the Zelda franchise

    I would add in the rules Rakon, just in case, that duplicate characters that have different canonical appearances won't be allowed, like the Link/Toon Link thing...

    Worms/Patapon/Pikmen/etc. count as 1 character. Don't need to differentiate between the different kinds.

    Please change these selections Lokness. The car existed outside video games before it was in GT5, and the l33t crew isn't an actual character. Also, who is Sweetwater? Name the series, or change the character. I like the creativity though.
