Ok we totally mucked up our prediction of that last round. We had it pegged that Shadow of the Tomb Raider would take out Red Dead and Death Stranding would best Hitman 2. But the score line ended up as

Red Dead Redemption [ 4 - 2 ] Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Hitman 2 [ 2 - 2 ] Death Stranding

Hitman pipped Death Stranding at the last moment with penalties. Sheesh I never saw Hitman getting this far, but we do all seem to love that bald killer.

Right so we are now into the last 2 matches before the Finals. And todays GD gaming world cup semi final match will be between two well know gaming goliaths, the cool headed Hitman versus the legendary Red Dead.

The winner of our competition can choose one of three prizes: a PS4 Pro, $300 Steam credit, or a GeForce GTX 1060 6GB. It's a competition for the GD community only, so the prize will only go to a GD member. This is football Game-Debate style!

My vote goes to Read Dead again. If for some reason that don't come to PC, i'll be ing pissed.

Given Take Two's defense of loot boxes and the CEO saying that RDR will be packed with "consumer spending opportunities", Hitman deserves to win it by default.

I can't believe that shadow of the tomb raider didn't qualified in the Semi Final nor Dying Light 2, both the games got a huge fan backup, :(

Easy, I don't like RDR and I like Hitman, simple, but I predict Hitman is going to lose hard.

I am rooting for Belgium, but it's gonna be tough. Pretty sure there will be a few goals, so neutral fans might really enjoy the game

Yep, hopefully will be a good game. France have played well so far, Belgium a bit shaky at the back but great on counters and set-pieces.
3:30am kick-off in my time zone though :(

Kicks-off at 21:00 in my time zone. More than decent :)
Feel bad for you. This one has all the ingredients for a great game and unless you are a night owl I don't see how you'll be able to see it live. And then someone will spoil the score for you and I don't know if you'll want to watch it anymore :(

Honestly, I love Hitman, but I do suck at that type of game. I just can't get the stealth right and it ruins the experience for me.
Haven't played RDR, but I voted RDR2 simply bcs I feel I would enjoy it more
