The Hunger Games -vs- Battle Royale       
by tobyhawkin
There’s been plenty of talk ’round the interwebs lately about whether or not Hunger Games author Susan Collins ripped off Koushin Takami’s Battle Royale. It’s an interesting question, to be sure, but here’s a funner one: Which of the ‘games’ is actually deadlier? 
Taking a page from one of my favorite guilty pleasure TV shows, I’ve conducted a highly scientific head-to-head analysis to find out which game is sicker, deadlier, and all-around-more-effed-up. The graphic looks best in in full size, but I fit it here as well. Enjoy!
———————————
*Analysis was conducted by comparing the movie versions, not the novels.**For the record, I give Collins the benefit of the doubt. I think both films are great, stand on their own, and make great companion pieces.***This is the first in what will hopefully be a steady diet of LourFoko graphics. Comments appreciated :)
