    You're probably not going to prove it with some poll in the misc section of a Pokemon site.

    Harry Potter is marginally better.

    I don't like both thaaaaaat much, but eh. That's me.

    Harry Potter is so much better. I still can watch the first movies and still the same pleasure I had when I first watched it. And get impressed by the same scenes it did before. Besides, being a movie about magic and all this stuff, it makes me want to live there, move myself to that plane of Oblivion. When I was young, I kept playing (alone though...) as a wizard, sometimes my toys would be one as well. I think the world there is quite more immersive.
    None of this I felt when I watched ('cause wouldn't bother to read) The Hunger Games. The story is nice and all and have its moments, but I think it's just a series out of many. Nothing really special about it.
    That comparison though is not any fair. Both series are marginally different. It's incomparable due to the fact they both can't relate to each other easily. Even when people LOTR with HP I feel like they're doing it wrong, but at least they share the fantasy premise.

    I love the Hunger Games.I've never liked Harry Potter in general,and the Hunger Games fits with what I like:Bloody battle where only one side/person emerge victorious.

    I don't care much for either series at all.

    I suppose I dislike The Hunger Games a little less, so that.

    Yes. Complete reason. I also like character death in books, so The Hunger Games fills my book love completely.

    Harry Potter....I mean the Hunger Games are cool and action-y and stuff, but I like HP slightly more.

    I like both of them, but HP a little more since I love the magic battles, the acting and the atmosphere. Hunger Games was interesting in its own way though, showing just how false some people can be.
    Looking forward to the release of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

    Harry potter will always be better. Mostly because it's british but also because it's more believable and there is way too much dystopian fiction out there like the hunger games.
    They also have loads of HP attractions so yeah.

    I love both books, but I have to go with Harry Potter because I'm into fantasy books and stuff with wizards & witches. Harry Potter is exactly that.

    Harry Potter hands down. The world and everything in it you just can't help but get lost in it and wonder what it would be like to go to hogwarts, want house you'd be in and playing Quittiduich.

    As much more as I love Harry Potter, I'm gonna say neither one is better than the other. Rowling is a great writer, but her HP stories are actually pretty bad in the overall scheme of things. On the other hand, Collins is a horrible writer (or at least one that writes specifically for young girls), but her HG stories are very well thought out.

    There's no real way to prove this; there are only opinions. And mine is that Harry Potter rules.

    Harry Potter, simply based on nostalgia and because the Hunger Games series doesn't interest me in the slightest. I couldn't even get through the first book.

    Harry Potter is very thought out.
    The information from the first books all fit in the last few books.

    HP hands down. Better/more fleshed out world, interesting and memorable characters, premise is more fun, etc. I'm obviously going to prefer the books that popularized the young mage fad and virtually defined their generation over yet another dystopia. Dystopias can be interesting, but not this one.

    Let's not even get started in the film department.

    I'm going to go with Harry Potter for the overall appeal. Currently a teenager, I've definitely outgrown the days where I wanted to dress as Harry for Halloween every year and don't really remember the small details of Harry Potter, but as my LEGO collection can attest, I once loved Harry Potter with a passion. I still actively like the Hunger Games, remember the details, but I find the movies a little intense and dually so for kids. In my opinion, Harry Potter got the casting right, while I find the Hunger Games too Hollywood in the movies. The SEVEN Harry Potter books can each hold their own as a quality read for really any age. The Hunger Games is a slow start, but worth it. Catching Fire can hold up too, but I think the Mockingjay was rushed, or the author was tired, or something so IMO there's only one or two good Hunger Games books.
