Wrist waggling Champion

How far will this inspirational design travel?

Small margin of victory for such a monstrous contender

Battles 6, 7 and 8 have come to a close and brings about the conclusion of Round 1 of our Video Game Controller Deathmatch.  The Xbox 360 edged out the PS3 by only 2 votes while the Dreamcast and Wii skunked their respective opponents.  Round 2 will be starting tomorrow so stay tuned for the first battle and in the meantime check out the updated tournament bracket below to check out the matchups.  As always you can follow us on Twitter @GamersAbstract and like us on Facebook for more content.


Large and in Charge

Sorry for the delay on the Video Game Controller Deathmatch front.  Now that all this Black Friday nonsense has concluded (sans Cyber Monday, kind of different) I can get back to this display of plastic and silicon carnage.  Battle 5 originally tied and then we had a rematch to decide a victor and the people have spoken; Xbox is your WINNER!!!  I think we might have had a few turncoats from the original battle to the rematch, but no matter it is time to move forward.  To make up for the delay I am posting the last 3 first round Battles to get caught up (Battle 6,7 and 8).  Battle 6 is between Xbox 360 and PS3, Battle 7 is between the Nintendo Wii and the Playstation Move and lastly Battle 8 (our weirdest match up) is between the Sega Dreamcast and Atari 2600.  Voting will go live today and end tomorrow night (November 28th) at midnight.  Remember there are three ways to vote.  You can vote on here, on Twitter and our most popular voting poll Facebook.  After the voting is over I will post an updated bracket to showcase the round 2 battles.  So let the blood flow into the proverbial internet streets and lets get it ON!!!  As always you can follow us on Twitter @GamersAbstract and like us on Facebook for more content and cool shit.


Battle 5 between PS2 and Xbox ended in a tie (first one yet).  So we are going to have a rematch to decide a winner.  Voting will be done in the same manner, so cast your votes again and we can only hope that the results do not repeat themselves (if they do some coin flipping will be in order, potential YouTube video).  So go vote on Battle 5 again and the voting will end today at midnight.  As always you can follow us on Twitter @GamersAbstract and like us on Facebook for more content.

A timeless design


Battle 3 is over in the Video Game Controller DEATHMATCH.  The Sony Playstation won this battle unopposed (literally, the Saturn got no votes).  This display of utter ass-kickery might be a sign of things to come for future battles, but only you can decide that.  The next Battle is between two brothers from the same mother.  The Nintendo 64 and Nintendo Gamecube have a battle with destiny today folks and the voting will end tonight at Midnight so go vote now.  Check back tomorrow (I know its Thanksgiving, but I’ll still be writing) for the next battle.  As always you can follow us on Twitter @GamersAbstract and like us on Facebook for more content.

Another Nintendo Victory...can they be stopped?

Battle 2 has ended and the SNES has emerged victorious.  That is another win under Nintendo’s belt in this Deathmatch and the question must be asked; will they be stopped?  Well that is up to you the readers.  The next Battle has been announced on our Facebook page and it is between the Sony Playstation and the Sega Saturn.  These 32-bit competitors will have a showdown today and only one will continue to the next round.  Voting ends on Battle 3 tonight at Midnight so vote now or forever hold your peace.  Check back tomorrow for Battle 4 and as always you can follow us on Twitter @GamersAbstract and like us on Facebook for more content.

Simple but...deadly design

The results from the first Battle are in and by an overwhelming landslide/skunking the NES is our first victor.  The poor Sega Master System never stood a chance apparently, but that is okay with me, because this is WAR.  The Second Battle has been announced and it is what I believe to be a much more even match up.  Today into tomorrow night the two 16-Bit powerhouses the Super Nintendo and the Sega Genesis will wage voting war against one another.  For those of you who are just joining the Deathmatch you can vote on here, on our Facebook page (click it to go) and on Twitter.  The rules for voting are simple and are in our original VGCDM post (click to see them, or just scroll down, up to you).  Check back Tuesday for results of this battle and the announcement of the next.  As always you can follow us on Twitter @GamersAbstract and like us on Facebook for more content.

You have been using various videogame controllers your whole life to kill, maim, plunder and loot A.I. and human enemies alike.  Starting today we turn the tides of battle against the very instruments of said actions.  You the readers will pit controllers from various generations and manufacturers against each other in a fight to the DEATH.  There can only be one, like Highlander.  So choose wisely and let the DEATHMATCH commence.  Also behold my mastery of creating tournament brackets (going to work on it, I know it looks beat).

Voting is easy and can be done in one of three ways.

  1. You can vote on our Facebook page
  2. You can send us an @ message on Twitter to @GamersAbstract with your pick
  3. You can vote on here in the comments, just state your pick

The First Battle to be voted on is:  NES vs. Sega Master System…FIGHT!!!!!!
