Watch Tier Pressure, our high-impact ode to ranking stuff

Orbs, movie aliens, tough bosses — we did it all

Simone de Rochefort has been producing & hosting YouTube videos for Polygon since 2016. She co-directed the upcoming documentary The Great Game: The Making of Spycraft.

It’s Who Would Win Week here at Polygon. Writers are asking themselves tough questions: pitting bear against bear, deciphering Dragon Ball power rankings, and debating why questions of qualitative “betterness” are so appealing in the first place.

To continue the fun, we held a special Twitch stream — which you can catch up with right here. Polygon’s video team hit the studio to assemble a selection of tier lists. Participants were asked to deliver chaotic rankings of the things they loved: from sound effects, to horror game villains, to ... orbs? We’re calling it Tier Pressure.

While Tier Pressure aired on Polygon’s Twitch channel, we’ve archived the mayhem for your own enjoyment. A big thanks to everyone who tuned in live: As you can see, we also spent the stream collecting channel points to decide the topic of our finale tier. Pretend like you were there by screaming at the screen while you watch.
