PlayStation All-Stars is a video game designed to answer hypotheticals. Who would win in a fight — Sly Cooper or Ratchet, Nathan Drake or a Big Daddy, Raiden or Kratos. So when we got the chance to talk with the game's director Omar Kendell, we thought we'd ask him some hypothetical questions of our own. Who would win in a fight between William Wallace and Shaft? Or Barack Obama vs Abraham Lincoln?
Nathan Drake vs Indiana Jones
Omar Kendell: "Oh that's an interesting question. I think... um. I'm not saying this because I work at Sony, but I'm going to give it to Drake, because he's accumulated a massive body count over the course of four games now. I know Indy has killed a guy or two, but Drake has taken out about 12 countries at this point. I'll give it to Drake."
Winner: Nathan Drake
Iron Man vs Batman
Omar Kendell: "Iron Man versus Batman? Does Batman have forewarning? If he does, I'm gonna have to give it to Batman. If it was just the two of them meeting in the street maybe Iron Man could take it, but if Batman has time to prepare, I think he can pretty much take anybody."
William Wallace vs Shaft
Omar Kendell: "Oh, interesting. Gosh... I guess William Wallace. [Laughs] Does Shaft kill people? I don't even know...
"I have to think if you've had experience in that head to head, one on one, you would have to give the nod to that person — so William Wallace. He would probably just take him out with a large army!"
Winner: William Wallace
4chan vs Reddit
Omar Kendell: "Well, I think the optimist in me — and this is probably going to get my whole life ruined — would really like good to triumph over evil, so I'm going to say Reddit. But just because that's who I'm rooting for!"
Barack Obama Vs Abraham Lincoln
Omar Kendell: "See this one... I'm going to give this to Barack by a mile. There would be a drone going after Abraham Lincoln before he even realised what was happening. It would take Abraham Lincoln time to garner enough support to go head to head against Obama. But Obama would just launch a drone from on high and take him out."
Winner: Barack Obama
Doctor Who vs Marty McFly
Omar Kendell: "I actually have never seen an episode of Doctor Who, I don't know too much about him. So I'm going with Marty."
Winner: Marty McFly
Margaret Thatcher vs Hilary Clinton
Omar Kendell: "I'm going to say Margaret Thatcher actually. Even though I'm pretty fond of Hilary, Margaret Thatcher was really tough in a time when it payed to be tough. So I'm going to give it to Margaret Thatcher."
Winner: Margaret Thatcher
Thanks to Omar Kendell for suffering our strange line of questioning!
