ALIENS all the way
the first movie started all this
the alien is by far the most deadly creature, has the better design and is more elegant.
dont get me wrong...i like the preds very well and i also collect much of the pred merch...
BUT when it comes to an comparison, alien is on top

maybe some of you hate me for this, but if you think about it enough, maybe some will agree.
there are to many inconsistencies in the preds universe for me.
in the first movie, the pred was an sadistic hunter and enjoys the killing with his technical toys.
i liked that because it was a real threat and scary as hell.
but over the years it changes into the wrong way.
what about that "killing with honor" crap in the preds culture ???
they kill cloaked, and mostly weaker and smaller beeings... where is the honor ?
the xenos give a shit and kill all whats in their way !!!

some say the predators are more intelligent...
yeah of course...runnig around with super duper weapons, but in the end, beaten up with wood an stone and in the case of PREY, kicked in the ass by Pocahontas with its own weapons....ts,ts,ts

in the first avp movie, grid killed two preds...
some fans said: yeah but the preds in there were only teenagers...
i say: oh really ? and what about grid ? its maybe 5 hours old my friends  ;)

even the strausse brothers said:" we have to make the aliens a little bit more stupid and weak,
to give the predator a chance in an one on one fight without his weapons"
(by the way: f**k avp2  :laugh:)

since the avp universe, the preds must team up with humans in comics, movies ect.
the xenos never team up with anybody, they just live to kill...
think about that ;D  ;D  ;D  ;D

Interesting points here to ponder. Aliens are born to kill straight away, fight on their own and will fight anything without any pretence of a code.

I always found the whole "Pred ares stronger than Xenos" stuff so blatantly false, the Xenos are always the ones that get nerfed to oblivion in the crossovers, and even then, it's always human spawned Xenos

both have their strengths and weaknesses, of course.
but with the crossovers the xenos become more and more a mindless being,
be it in comics, most of the games, novels or films.
this one scene in avp2-reqiem is a good example.
wolf graps two xenos at the same time and all they do is fidget.
that's ridiculous, they could have just impaled him with their tails.
same nonsense with the avp(3) game poster.
big pred holds the marine in one hand and the alien in the other:
"take a picture, i don't have much time" :laugh:

the predator must be a bit more intelligent than the alien because he uses futuristic weapons and technology.
but the alien shouldn't be so stupid that it doesn't fight back.

I think the powers of both should be balanced. but that's easy to say.
when the aliens attack in hordes it becomes too difficult for the predator

I'm shocked, absolutely SHOCKED, that Predator is only slightly in the lead in the poll.

Who could possibly vote for such abominations as the xenomorphs? 😝

People that know that the Predator franchise would have died in 1990 if Alien hadn't had a crossover with it ;D

The Predators as, like humans, they can develop technology to increase their abilities.

Because Predator has four good films, and Alien still has only three, that came out before I was born. Good thing we have Isolation, Alex White's books, and Dark Horse's last Alien books in recent memory.
