Summer E Games 2010

2010 Summer E Games “Legacy Battle”


Some games are so good they are given one sequel (or two, or three), while others have such an amazing story, only a spin-off will quench the thirst for more. Either way, these series of games become legacies for developers, publishers and more importantly, us, the fans. There is only one way to decide who the favorite is … Legacy Battle!

Warning … Please Read

While we want you to support your favorite legacy, we WILL NOT accept bashing of other people or who they support. A good rule of thumb to go by: If you are thinking about saying something negative, step away from the keyboard. Debate is fine, but some people don’t understand HOW to debate, so better to just leave it alone. Failure to follow this simple rule will get you banned from EVERY SUMMER E GAMES EVENT and ALL MEDALS WILL BE STRIPPED.
