This is more than likely going to be the most one sided set of rounds yet. Rorie and Gary all the way.

Rorie and Whitta, no contest.

Shoot that guy! And...Macs are bad! (Trying to come up with a Rorie reference there that wasn't puppies.)

Edit: Also, calling Gary Whitta a guest on the Tested podcast is untrue, he is a regular member of their podcast, despite not actually working for Tested. There are far more with him than without.

As much as I love Mega 64, I have to vote for our boy Rorie and Whitta. Whitta's accent is what got me! :D

Since I'm most likely going to lose anyway in a landslide, why not toss a sympathy vote for me over Gary so that my feelings aren't completely crushed! Some choice reasons why:

  • Gary wrote some stuff about zombies. I actually survived malaria (which is basically as close as we get to zombies)
  • Gary wrote for an Amiga magazine, I still own a copy of The Great Giana Sisters for Amiga
  • Gary co-founded PC Gamer magazine, I once visited their website by accident
  • I have enjoyed exactly zero episodes of My Little Pony
  • I am sick, and a vote may make me healthy enough to go to work tomorrow and continue making a game for you. Can Gary promise that? ONLY PARTIALLY.

Thank you for your sympathy vote consideration.

The fact that Matt Rorie is without a job is a fucking travesty. The most skilled writer Whiskey Media ever had.

If you'd said that you still own a copy of The Great Giana Sister for C64 you might have had something.

Rocco is fucking awesome but he´s not a duder. I hate Gary Whitta and Dan, well I haven´t seen him that much. So my vote goes to RORIE AND JUST RORIE. I can´t believe there is no Brad Muir here. How could he lost? He´s fucking amazing.

@Deusx: This is a tournament. Brad Muir is still in it, just in a different part of the bracket. Check the main thread for more info.

You know, I really like Rocco and the Mega64 crew's appearances on Giant Bomb a whole lot but Matt Rorrie. The Boss of Bosses.

@Hunkulese: Universally acclaimed screenwriter would be better, you're right.

@AlisterCat: That would be great. My banner was made in 2 minutes on Paint. I seriously lack the skills to make anything better. I would appreciate it a lot.

@Winternet I like Gary but that's still a stretch. He has 1 screenwriting credit and it wasn't exactly universally acclaimed.

@Hunkulese: It will be two credits next year, though I have no idea how After Earth will turn out. I always think of Titan: A.E. when I hear that title.

I voted for Gary and Rorie. After all Gary gave us "Use more skill" and "Shoot that guy!" I may have chosen Derrick Acosta over Rorie, had he been in the poll.

Here, I made this. You don't have to use it obviously. If you have any suggestions let me know.
