Hmm... Mojo 9 strikes again I fear... though this is on Lucasforums, so the code should technically not be affecting it

Haha, your guess is as good as mine.

Only thing I can speculate is that he deleted his own post which left the thread intact, but usually there's a note that it happened — and I see no such note.

Think the LF server borked. ;o

I am guessing he was going to link to this, where Guybrush is 3% away from taking the lead. Vote people!

The whole thing is terrible. They're just picking the more popular character, which in most cases is some lame anime guy.

Isn't that the point? To pick the most popular character?

These things are just a glorified voting poll.

Sorry guys, I voted Wander. In no way to I want that ugly ass Guybrush to win. Abe would have be my first choice as the full winner but I think he's a clear loser in this case. Maybe Jade when that portion appears as votable...

I voted Guybrush. Who cares what picture they used. It's Guybrush!

While Shadow of the Colossus is an awesome game, Guybrush has more awesome titles on his name. Guybrush has more history in games, and is thus greater.

The hero is also not what makes Shadow of the Colossus awesome, it's the colossi, atmosphere and gameplay.

But he's making me recoil in disgust.

Also if you click on the behind the character button, you get to see someone's amazing cut out job of Curse Guybrush.

This isn't a vote for aesthetics.

But if he wins the remake Guybrush will be plastered across my screen for victory! I can't have that!

If Guybrush loses, I blame you.

Haha, well I guess I can take full blame on that.

They should have just used the concept for the Tales version... but I would have loved the painting of him in agony off the Monkey Island 2 box.

I that "My Bracket" thing, and got a standoff between Manny Calavera and The Nameless One at the end. TNO wins for me, sorry Manny.

Why is Escape from Monkey Island listed twice for games that he has been in? Shouldn't all the other games be listed twice?

The first one is for the game Escape From Monkey Island, and the second one is a more metaphysical statement referring to the "Escape" from the values of a Monkey Island game that it represented.

Or it's because it was released on PS2 and PC, and they have a separate entry for each game.

Looks like Guybrush is going to lose, this contest fails, everyone is voting with their heart instead of their brain. Then again, it's the same with every voting or election. People don't think about who they vote for.

I wonder if Gordon Freeman will defeat Yoshi in the second tier...
