Who Would Win Wednesdays has reached its 20th round, meaning that it's now possible to look all the way back to the very first instalment of this weekly feature and think to yourself, "I was there when it all began." Something to tell the kids about, eh? In any case, our last fight between the Patapon Army and the Third Colossus ended in a draw, would you believe. Tied at 50 per cent of the vote each, we suppose that this proves that a tiny army can more than hold its own against a lumbering giant – but how would a battle between two heavily armed groups of psychopaths turn out? We're going to reach that rather bloody conclusion here today.
The GTA V Gang
Michael, Trevor, and Franklin. Grand Theft Auto V's trio of criminals are a rather dynamic bunch, but they know how to get the job done. Taking on suicide missions, these three ne'er-do-wells work best focusing on different roles while acting as a single unit. Thankfully, each one of them is handy with an automatic weapon, and can drive just about any vehicle without much experience behind the wheel. And, when things get risky, they can crack out their own special skills to even the odds. Michael does his best impression of Max Payne as he employs bullet time, Franklin gets the adrenaline pumping as he drives with ridiculous reaction times, and Trevor simply goes berserk as he soaks up bullets like freshly flicked snot. They may not always get along, but the GTA V Gang has the experience, skills, and the style to pull off impossible feats.
The Payday Gang
Dallas, Hoxton, Chains, and Wolf. These four experienced robbers are at the centre of blast-'em-up Payday 2. Together, they make an unstoppable unit, who plan and carry out their own heists on everything from banks to art galleries. Utilising numerous skill trees, the Payday Gang offer a wide range of abilities that allow them to escape from some dangerous scrapes. They're just as capable of stealthy approaches as they are guns blazing offensives, and we despair for any SWAT team that has to get the best of these masked marauders. Indeed, the foursome are so fearful that the cops usually have no choice but to release them from jail just minutes after they've been locked up. Even the drills that they use have a tendency to break down out of sheer terror. Or so we like to imagine.
