G4TV have recently launched a new “Video Game Deathmatch” to find out which new game is considered the 2011 game of the year, and Skyward Sword has been paired off in the first round against Uncharted 3. Just yesterday Skyward Sword was losing the vote 42%-58%, but since then Zelda fansites have started posting about it and the gap is now down to that of 48%-52%. The poll allows you to easily vote without registration hassle by letting you login via Facebook, so if you’re interested in helping Skyward Sword on its way to the top you can head here to vote.

Often the refrain I hear about these kinds of contests is that the people who visit G4 “hate Nintendo” and it’s not worth trying, so here’s a bit of a reminder – with a little bit of help from the Zelda community, the Zelda series won G4’s tournament for Best Franchise back in April, defeating the organized online fanbase of the Starcraft series in a close finale. If Skyward Sword does make it just a bit further we’re likely to see a very interesting match-up, one that has been causing a lot of debate even without a tournament to trigger it – Skyward Sword vs Skyrim.

    First post…but hopefully not the first vote for Link. Nor the last. Come-on Zelda community.

  • ChainofTermina

    last time this happened, Uncharted won and half the people here agreed with that. So, yeah, I'm staying out of this.

  • DekuKnight

    Personally, uncharted 3 wasn't that good compared to uncharted 2. So i'm voting for zelda!!!!!

  • JDEofVG

    Blah, I don't have an account there, and it refuses to let me log in with FB…..Guess I can't vote. šŸ™

    • Those of you with accounts, don't let Skyward Sword lose!

  • DekuKnight

    This isn't fair at all. I mean, Skyward Sword wasn't even out when they created this so-called "death match"

  • Yes, I stepped into G4, but only for Skyward Sword and all of Zelda. And I didn't go anywhere else, for fear of needing to slay some trolls.


  • The Cozmologist

    It's funny that Uncharted had a pretty good lead, release date wise, on Zelda, yet Zelda now has a 53% lead on Uncharted.
    Dem fanboyz be mad, really mad. xD

    i cant decide so im not voting, these are my 2 favorite series of all time, so which ever one wins i'll be happy šŸ™‚

    I love Zelda. I've been playing since the original NES game. And Skyward Sword does not disappoint. It was everything I'd hoped it would be.

    But my vote this time goes to Uncharted 3. I thought long and hard about it because I honestly love both series (and graphics were not a factor). The story, the characters, the actors, animators, and writer's dedication to building those characters…you can tell every little detail was carefully thought out (even if the story isn't as great as U2). Plus I have a huge amount of respect for Naughty Dog. Good luck to them. šŸ™‚

  • Sanguiluna

    Never been a fan of Uncharted, so this is a no-brainer.

    Skyward Sword vs. Arkham City, on the other hand…

  • Jordan

    LOL, Skyward Sword is amazing. But Uncharted being a copy? Of what? Learn to game. But both games are masterpieces!
