Only one of these Drakes gets all the ladies.

I don't care for John Drake.

#3 Edited by Milkman (16610 posts) -

There's only been 7 votes so far but quite frankly, I'm still disgusted that Nathan Drake is beating John Drake.

Neither do I to be quite honest... I don't hate the man or anything, but eh, can't say I'm a fan.

There is only one answer here, and he drinks Diet Coke.

Also screw the Drake Sword. I hate that stupid blade, all it does is teach people how to play extremely sloppily and miss basic concepts while trivializing a fun section of the game.

Obligatory Dark Souls fan says: Hellkite Drake

Only one of these things got me through Dark Souls with my sanity intact. And we all know that's John Drake.

Ladies and Gentleman, put your hands together for John Drake!

Double fisting diet cokes.

Where is Drake (Canadian Rapper)?

I'm pretty sure he was involved with video games at one point.

I thought about it, but his connection to video games is tangential at best, and also I super duper don't like his music.

Well, the Drake Sword is kinda useless later in the game, Nathan Drake is an unsympathetic idiot (I know everybody but me loves him, but you are ALL WRONG. I'm the only one who is right!) and I'm way too super cool for your Tralse Memes.

So John Drake it is. John Drake (the name alone) always sounds to me like a Disney character, don't know why.

#16 Posted by Guesty_01 (339 posts) -

Nathan. Obviously.

#17 Edited by D0tti (786 posts) -

Started from the bottom now we're here.

Also, Nathan Drake is the only answer to this question.

@abendlaender: I'm totally with you on Nathan Drake. He's a piece of shit. And so is the Drake Sword. The Red Dragon from Demon's Souls is the correct answer.

I love the Drake Sword precisely for this reason. It requires a pretty shameful act- standing under a bridge, shooting arrows like a coward and trying to hit a tail for kind of a while- and once you have it, you miss out on all sorts of important lessons. By the time its obsolete later in the game, you're fucked.

Goddamn you.

How can you not vote for a man that basically bleeds diet coke? He is not only a skilled game maker but also a biological marvel.

#23 Posted by SuperfluousMoniker (2907 posts) -

@daneian: Or, you can get the Drake Sword like a MAN.

Nathan for sure. Nowhere near as much product placement...Well, actually, never mind.

That dude is the uber Male. I entrust he with repopulating the world if there's ever a mass extinction.

There are some Year of Drake activities that will continue into 2014, including some of the special products that we've launched (the Men of Game Development calendar), so there will be some products to carry the John Drake banner into the next calendar year

#29 Edited by Familyguy1 (72 posts) -

Pssh. Like this would be a contest. John Drake is the clear winner.

#30 Posted by AMyggen (2751 posts) -

@deliciousbees: Good to head.

Drake performance of the year was obviously John Drake at the GB PAX Panel.

#31 Posted by mosespippy (4095 posts) -

So I guess this is an early indication that John Drake is a heavy favourite to win the next golden duder award.

#32 Posted by Dalai (7016 posts) -

John Drake has an app where you can buy him a Diet Coke. That's all I need to say.

Nah, fuck Dark Souls AND it's lessons. The only lessons that game has to teach is of how much of an asshole it is. If you can game it, game it.

#34 Posted by CountBolkonsky (65 posts) -

John Drake without a doubt.

#35 Posted by DystopiaX (5297 posts) -

Young Money Drake.

#36 Edited by EquitasInvictus (2020 posts) -

John Drake is the Drake of ALL the generations.

Maybe, but I don't think it indicates much of anything, given how the poll options are a fictional person, a real person, a fictional weapon, and a joke answer. Not exactly very related to each other.

It doesn't really say a lot about how John Drake would do against Brad Muir or Johnny V or anything.

#38 Posted by Nux (2320 posts) -

The Drake Sword could kill the other Drakes on this list; just sayin'.

Only one of these can make you question your sexuality, as well as your beverage preferences.

#41 Edited by Brendan (7730 posts) -

John Drake was a thing before this generation so he's disqualified. Nathan Drake it is.

#42 Edited by MrMazz (945 posts) -

John Drake is eternal and forever he is more than a mere generation. It's kind of not fair

#43 Posted by TooWalrus (13151 posts) -

Which one is Nolan North?
