Here it is everyone, the reincarnation of RPGamer's Poll Comments section.
Why did I bring this back you ask? Partly because I keep finding there's things I want to say about the
polls. Partly because I thought you might have some things to say about the polls. Partly because when
he gave up on this section, Martin Drury said, "no matter how I tried, the number of polls submitted
still was reaching astronomical proportions." By the time I inheritted the poll, just the opposite was
the problem. Anything else I have to say on the subject is pretty self evident if you just look at how
this page is formatted I hope, so I'll just dive in to filling this template in now.
Comments on this week's poll:
Have you ever played a game where you have to put the controller on the floor for 5 minutes just to
hear the last boss' theme music loop once? Have you ever spent 20 hours character building at the end
of a game only to be wiped out in the first round? Which bothered you more? Do you prefer winning a game
to give you bragging rights, or do you just want to get things over with when you reach the end? That's
the sort of thing I want to learn from this poll. I left out the usual fence sitter choice here by the
way since it would only apply to extremes. Obviously if it's nearly impossible to beat ANY boss in a game,
you don't want the last one to be even harder, and if the rest of the game is so easy it puts you to sleep,
you'll want a LITTLE challenge at the end, so just assume this poll is dealing only with the slightly
easy to fairly hard range of games.

Which graphical style do you prefer in RPGs?
Submit your poll ideas
- DON'T submit polls for which there are more than a dozen choices, such as "Which RPG has the best
- DO submit polls that have a clear cut range of choices, such as "Which RPG released last year has the best
- DON'T submit polls that concentrate on only one game, series, or company, UNLESS there is some
recent news about them. For example, a poll asking "Which Final Fantasy game has the best music?"
would be accepted a week after the release of Final Fantasy 10, but would not be accepted if sent
- DO submit polls that apply to RPGs in general, such as "Do you prefer polygonal, hand drawn,
or rendered backgrounds in RPGs?" or "What type of setting do you wish more RPGs would use?"
- DON'T submit polls about RPGamer itself.
