Vote for one game in each versus match that you’d like to see advance to the next round. Feel free to skip any match that you don’t want to vote in.

Voting for this bracket will end on 18 January at 23:59 GMT.

The four games in each bracket that survive their versus match will go on to the next round (the Round of 16), and so on, until only one game remains and wins the tournament for our community’s favorite adventure game.

Not sure what this tournament is all about? See the Overview thread here. Don’t worry if you missed previous rounds. Join in and have fun!

1) Ahh… Can I get back to you on that one?

Ohh… what the hell *flips coin*: Discworld

Had it been the SE version of MI with voice acting and everything, then the coin would probably had landed on MI.
And then there is that non sequitur ending to MI2 Sick, that was really the deciding factor here for me.

2) The Whispered World
Resonance is a very good game - but TWW is even better!

3) The Curse of Monkey Island
No real contest here.

4) Tex Murphy: The Pandora Directive
I think sanitarium is a brilliant game, but TPD is one of my all time favourite games.

Really??? Resonance VS The Whispered World??? That’s the best of Daedelic VS the best of Wadjet Eye!! And only one of them will move to the next round???
Why are you doing this??? Cry  Cry  Cry

1) Discworld. I believe that I’ll be one of the few people who, while I recognise the quality in MI2, I enjoyed Discworld much more.
2) The Whispered World. The Whispered World is my No5 personal favorite game. Resonance is No8. I believe that these two games are the best adventure game titles of the last 6-7 years (at least) and it is really a shame that they were drawn together. Oh well…
3) TCoMI.
4) The Pandora Directive. Another strong pair. I liked TPD a slightly more…

M1: Monkey Island 2 - I’m trying to look at this as objective as possible. I played both games when I they first came out and had numerous replays of both. I can safely say that Discworld (as excellent as it is) can only compete with MI2 when it comes to humor and voice acting (and until SE surpass it of course). Everything else goes to Monkey.

M2: The Whispered World - Certainly a Top 5 game of the last ten years, while Resonance is more of a Top 10ish.

M3: Beneath a Steel Sky - This was the hardest one, but I cannot forgive Curse its decent into ludicrousness and a complete parody of itself.

M4: Sanitarium - Except the charisma of Chris Jones I don’t see anything “that” good in Tex Murphy games and Sanitarium is simply brilliant

1. Both games get an equal score from me, so which way do I vote? MI2 with its better middle part but worse ending, or the more consistent Discworld? That messed up ending vs. “that doesn’t work”? Well, Monkey Island DOES have a Special Edition that makes it even better…
Oh, what the hell, I’ll vote Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge

2. no vote (could be a close match)

3. The Curse of Monkey Island - it’s only my #1 adventure game, none can stand against it

4. no vote (but I’m rooting for Tex)

Curse vs Pandora would be a hell of a match.
