That's the question. What's your answer?

Or, if you'd rather vote for something reasonable, vote for the one you think is the better game.

In order for this hypothetical to work, we'd have to live in a world in which cases have both become mobile and presumably sentient.

If that's the case, then it doesn't matter who wins - we're all fucked.

@Terramagi: Or maybe both basketballs and skateboards have become sentient.

As weapons I can only really see the Baller Beats basketball being a ranged weapon and the Tony Hawk skateboard being used as a bludgeoning weapon. Speaking from experience, being hit with a basketball in the face certainly hurts. Might even break your nose. But with a bit of luck that bullshit board might just stay strong enough to beat your enemies into submission.

Wait what was the question again

@panvixyl: Don't worry. You nailed it.

I think the board make for a better weapon then the basketball. You only get to throw the ball once. Wait, I'm confused, is this what weapon we would pick? I would pick a belt.

You throw that motherfucking rubber ball as hard as you can at somebody's face and that will drop a bitch.

That said.....you best not miss. I vote NBA Baller Beats somewhat arbitrarily. (honestly, I really have no idea how I should simulate this "fight to the death". Is it metaphorical? Are the two peripherals sentient? Are people controlling the peripherals?)

Assuming both games assumed human form, I'd assume that a Baller would win in a fight against a skateboarder with no wheels.

*actually reads thread* ... Oh. Baller Beats. Tony Hawk Ride's control issues keep it from being an effective fighter, and the FREE BASKETBALL that comes with Baller Beats can bust a nose from afar.

While the FREE BASKETBALL can be an effective ranged weapon, I think it would be too easy to block with the RIDE "SKATEBOARD".

And then Baller Beats would get pummeled by the RIDE "SKATEBOARD"

But I still voted for Baller Beats, because I can't let RIDE win at anything...
