Let the chest-thumping commence. When it comes to face-offs it can’t really come more testosterone fuelled than these two brutes. In the wake of the disappointing Titanfall the path was cleared for Far Cry 4 and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare to mop up towards the end of the year.

These two old warhorses are going to slug it out to the death, to see just which first-person shooter franchise reigns supreme over all. They'll be taking shotgun bursts to the chest in the name of greatness, but only one first-person shooter can come out of this deathmatch arena alive and make it through to the next round of 12 Games of Christmas.

Vote in our poll at the bottom to help determine this round's winner.

All faith in the Call of Duty franchise had ebbed away with the disappointing CoD: Ghosts, but Sledgehammer Games announced its arrival on the scene with a sonic boom. Advanced Warfare was Call of Duty like we’d never seen it before, whisking us away to a captivating futuristic setting that opened the door to those all-important Exo Suits capable of fast-paced movement and jet pack bursts. This was joined by high-tech weaponry and abilities, lending itself well to some of the most frenetic multiplayer we’ve seen in years, almost capturing the spirit of those early arena shooters.

Far Cry 4 did things differently though, not exactly treading new ground but expanding on everything that had been done before. It’s bigger, better, and more chaotic than ever before, rewarding imagination and creativity with gleeful pyrotechnics and outright destruction. Where CoD: AW offers tightly crafted linear set-pieces Far Cry 4 offers vast expanses and co-operation mayhem, delivering one of the hands-down most enjoyable shooters we’ve got our mitts on in years.

The pair of them must now step into a deadly no-holds-barred arena, locked and loaded with the latest high-tech weaponry in a battle to the death. Two games go in, but only one will make it out the other side. Who wins is up to you, so get voting in the poll below to book a place in the semi-final for one of these gung ho titles!

12 Games of Christmas Rules

In celebration of all things festive, we thought there was no better way to salute some of 2014's biggest games than a good old-fashioned punch-up. A battle to the death if you will. 12 of this year's most memorable titles will be going head to head in a series of knockout rounds over the next 9 days, and there can be only one winner.

To make things a little spicier we'll also be giving away a copy of the winning game on December 24th, perfect for a spot of gaming in the holidays. All you have to do to win a copy of that game is tweet your support for any game in the 12 Games of Christmas, using the links provided in each article, and we'll pick a winner out of all of the tweets after the final bout. Multiple tweets for different games will count as additional entries to the competition. Tweeting is separate from the poll and does not count as a vote in the 12 Games of Christmas.

How the community voting works

Each day at 18:00 GMT two titles will battle each other. Whichever title receives the most votes in the poll wins, and will then go through to the next round. 12 games in total will be battling away, and the first six rounds will take place from today and over the next five days - one battle per day. The six games that win will make it through to the semi-finals, where three further 1v1 fights will take place. The winners of these three battles will then make it to the three-way final to decide the ultimate game this Christmas.

The winner of this knockout competition is Game Debate's favourite choice of game to be played this Christmas, doing its best Rocky impression and swatting aside the rest of the competition like flies.

Each bout will last 24 hours, and the winner is whichever game receives the most votes in the poll, which can be found towards the bottom of each article.
