As they say, better late than never!
We have posted up this month’s Mini-Poll. The question we’re asking this time is: “Who is your favorite Half-Life character?“. To help answer it, we’ve got 10 iconic members of Half-Life’s rich cast of characters, for you to choose from:
Once you’ve decided, just scroll down past the Recent Comments section on the sidebar, and rock the vote! And do let us know who you voted for in the comments section!
In other news, we’ve also got the results from last month’s Mini-Poll (which we closed a few days ago, and which dealt with the importance of general graphical quality in video games): 864 votes, split among 6 different poll options.
So, let’s find out what you guys actually think of graphics in games – and this time, we’re showing you the results… (drumroll please, this is really important)… in bar chart form! Alex decided the pie charts were probably getting old by now, and I kind of have to agree. So, here it is:
Let’s run through all the poll options in a more detailed, textual form:
- “Yes, I think graphical quality is the most important factor in a video game’s development.” – 20 votes
- “I think graphical quality is pretty significant, and I have trouble playing games with poor visual quality.” – 130 votes
- “It really doesn’t interest me that much. I’ll play it anyway!” – 63 votes
- “I think art style is more important than graphical horsepower.” – 363 votes
- “Graphical quality isn’t that important for me, but I think it affects the way I experience a game.” – 245 votes
- “A game’s graphical quality is completely and utterly unimportant in my opinion.” – 43 votes
Interesting results! Now we know that if Valve were to suddenly announce a text adventure game, it might not go all that well. But let’s keep an open mind – who knows what Valve is going to throw out to keep us appeased while they continue working on… ahem, “Ricochet 2“? Unless… “Ricochet 2” itself is a text adventure?!
Well, in any case, don’t forget to head on down (although by this point I assume you’d have to scroll up), and vote for who you think is the greatest Half-Life character ever! Choose wisely.
