The opinion seems to be evenly split between using guides with certain franchises and only using guides when unfortunately stuck. No need for me to create a poll to find out which guides the latter uses the most often; I’m fairly certain I already know the answer.
As for the last entry, well, I know exactly who that person is (and if you’re a friend of mine on Facebook, you know who it is, too) and I especially expected that response. What would have surprised me would have been additional votes, because surely readers of this site come here because 1) you’re a fan of guides or 2) you like my writing or possibly both!
But let’s move on to the next poll. How many games to you play at once?
I’ve been plagued with this for the last few weeks, especially since I’ve been called upon to review more games. I’ve had to stop playing Transformers: War for Cybertron due to reviewing Arc Rise Fantasia, as miserable as that game made me. I just didn’t have enough hours in the day to do both. So MattG stepped in and said that I should always make time for a game for myself and a review game, unless the two happen to coincide. Right now my review assignment is Ys Seven, and even though I really enjoy the game, it’s definitely not a “me” game I would choose.
That “me” game has been DeathSpank, which has been more fun than I thought possible. And another friend has implored me to pick back up his Castlevania challenge. So fine. I’ll play a review game, a challenge game, and a game for me. And once DeathSpank is done (possibly by tonight), I’ll be switching back and forth between Red Dead Redemption and Transformers: War for Cybertron.
Is anyone else as insane as I am or am I alone? Or do I pale in comparison to some of you?
