Gotta go with the velociraptors. Any of the others are pretty much certain to kill me, but the velociraptors are animals, and while they may have learned how to turn door HANDLES, I live in a building that's full of door KNOBS. And if they spawn right next to me, I'm f***ed anyways.

I figure no matter who I pick as my nemesis, I'm probably going to be dead in short order. I chose Imhotep, because maybe I'll get a chance to talk to him about what ancient egypt was really like while he's disemboweling me or something.

Yeah holy fucking shit. Xenomorphs would be fucking terrifying in broad daylight when you're surrounded by trained Navy SEALs who are all fully armed. No fucking thank you. Plus, even if you do kill it, there's the risk of getting splashed with its blood. Even if just a few drops hit you on the arm, it'll bore through your skin and basically render whatever part of your body it lands on totally unusable.

EDIT- I'd probably wait to see how Silent Hill had shaped itself to my psychosis before killing myself. I can only imagine.

Imhotep. For some reason I still remember the incantation from the movie to turn him human. I think I could probably take an un-powered Arnold Vosloo.

Yeah but it might be interesting! And I'd learn something about myself too.

I'd actually say that maybe committing suicide in SH would be a terrible idea because you might get stuck there for eternity or some shit.

EDIT- all my monsters would probably be mopey dudes that sat in corners or some shit. This is the pouty sad-face monster. He has the ability to pout at three times normal human pout capacity.

Raptors, because IF I get lucky enough to find a place to hide or get out of their reach for a little while they seem like the only ones likely to give up and move on eventually.

So we have a heads up when they come for us? (Not like "They will be here in 6 months" but more like "there is a vampire within 20 miles gunning for you.")

You only know that they're within your 'home field', except for the Terminator, who will appear somewhere at random. I think I said 'in America' in the OP, but he'll appear in your country at least. So if you're from a very small country, it doesn't much matter.

Once you choose though, they spawn immediately, though they may take thier time coming for you if they need/want to reconnoiter.

Who'd win in a fight: a Predator, or Kevin from Home Alone

For the purposes of this question: Kevin's family are on vacation in Hawaii but left their credit cards, so he has an empty house, unlimited budget and he has 12 hours notice that the Pred is coming for him.

I picked the Xenomorph then. I am fairly sure I could bring one down with my 300 Winchester Magnum and I am fairly accurate out to a range of 200 yards or so. I have a ranch and some moderately tall buildings (at least 2 stories.) with fields around them for a large area so I could see it coming. I could keep a backup 10 gauge shotgun with buckshot in case something goes horribly wrong with the rifle.

Plus I could likely recruit a couple of other shooters.

I thought about going with the Lycans, but the only silver bullets I have are .357 and I don't have any rifles that will fire them.

I also thought about the Terminator, but I wouldn't want to have to deal with the T-1000 several years from now.

Also I would love to have some samples of the Xenomorph blood.

Kevin's traps are only non-lethal because they were hitting Joe Pesci, who is far tougher than a predator.

On the other hand, if he doesn't know what he's fighting, his normal bottom up design won't help him because the predator hunts from the rooftops and would come in through the windows.

This, and I am surrounded by cats.

Although, the Tall Man from the Phantasm movies would be an interesting adversary if I had the choice.

Change my answer to xenomorph. I like the idea of being taken to its hive and being used to give birth to horrors that will kill you all. Bonus if the facehugger that lays eggs in me is the queen.

Forgot to put my answer.

I would pick the Lycans.

They have more easily exploited rules, might be reasoned with and I can stave them off just by going to a police station.

Plus, they're the only group that wouldn't tear a bloody swathe through/convert hundreds of innocent people to get at me. I can't really 'win' against any of these things, but I can at least not take lots and lots of people with me.
