The internet has been a platform for a hub of activities where fans indulge in all kinds of chatter. The idle chatter gets converted into geek arguments where things go out of hand all because some fans take the whole issue a little too seriously. Can’t blame them as they consider this world real, as real as flesh and bones
I’ve thrown light on the Top 5 Geek Debates with definite answers. Here goes;
5. Enterprise VS Star Destroyer
While the Enterprise’s mission was to find new life beyond the stars, Star Destroyer redefined sci-fi cinema. Through it, we were made aware of the awesomeness of space and a brilliant, humongous spaceship.
While the Enterprise embodies an image of advanced technology, Star Destroyer is a personification of bureaucracy. I guess that explains its huge size and the reason behind it being unstoppable.
People have spent ages trying to figure out this ideological dispute. What conclusion have I come down to you ask?
Remember Darth Vader’s skill of asphyxiating anyone simply by raising his hand? Or Transporter Chief O’Brien doing the exact same thing by merely raising a few fingers? With this kind of transporter technology, winning is way out of league for the other party! Let’s not forget that Star Wars universe never heard of transporter technology.
On the narrative front, the Enterprise is a renowned hero whereas Star Destroyers are nameless myrmidons. Do I need to pursue my case any further? I guess not.
4. Nintendo VS Sega
This was a typical debate in the 1980’s. Back then, liking video games wasn’t as acceptable as stealing undergarments. No, I’m not kidding. Stealing displayed career opportunities and physical ability which it seems, video games didn’t.
The Winner: Nintendo
I’m an out and out Nintendo fan because I personally felt they could make a console that only belted out games and still be successful. That’s exactly what they did with the Wii. Talk of reading minds and talk of raking in millions of dollars with this concept! It was a smashing success!
Nintendo further went on to accomplish another feat by having Mario and Sonic on the same console. Yes, we now have “Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games,” on the Wii.
Sega on the other hand released machines that were failures and not even popular. The Sega CD, Saturn, 32X, all bombed. So much for this saga…
