    PlanetQuake | The PQ Poll | 08/09/00
   

The PQ Poll: August 9, 2000
Got poll questions you think we should use? Email them to poll@planetquake.com!



Out of the following, which do you prefer?

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
Capture-the-Flag style mods. Capturing is my bag, baby.
325
28.7%
Tag-style mods (like Catch the Chicken). They're faster than everything else!
81
7.1%
Class-based mods. Give me Team Fortress any time.
283
25%
New Weapon mods. I want grenades that shoot rails and rockets out of them!
180
15.9%
Realism mods. I want real weapons and real gore!
263
23.2%

Mynx: SPOON!!!!!! (doo doooooo)
Fargo: I would rather see more inventive mods, like Kick the Can, Get Rich Quake, or Build the Sinistar. People stopped experimenting with mods -- everyone tries to make another CTF, TF, or CounterStrike.
Pappy-R: Ok...I want realism WITH flags AND a chicken that has classes (like sniper chicken), and I want all new weapons to attack said chicken.
Spyke: If you mention Catch the Chicken, do you really have to ask me?
shaithis: Class-based. Q3F Is my current favorite, but I want to check out WFA.
Lee'Mon: Lately, I've just been in the mood for anything that has me laughing the entire time. CTC fits the bill nicely.
L33t'M0n: Weapons, weapons, weapons! Excessive is great, but I gotta get my hands on some new toys. When's Chaos Arena coming out?
Hellchick: I'm a big fan of anything that's weird. Catch the Chicken is right up my alley.


Which of these reasons makes you play Quake III Arena?

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
The graphics! Curves make me feel all funny down there.
82
7.2%
The gameplay - I like it fast.
227
20%
I play for both of these reasons!
492
43.5%
One word: Mynx. Aww, yeah.
91
8%
I don't play Q3A - I like the previous Quake games better.
238
21%

Mynx: Hey um... I think I may be offended.
Fargo: The graphics engine just feels right.
Pappy-R: All of the above, and Klesk!
Spyke: Hellchick said if I didn't play it, she'd have to kill me.
shaithis: I like the previous quake games better (well, Quake1 anyway), but I play Q3A because that's where my current favorite mod is
Lee'Mon: The fact with my new PC, "The Rig," can beat the tar out of any computer in the building.
L33t'M0n: No one said it, so I will: Boobies.
Hellchick: I play it for the gameplay. I love the graphics, but now that I've seen them a lot I turn them down to make my game run a little better.


Do you buy games made with an id engine just because it's an id engine?

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
Hell yes! I would buy a Pac-Man remake if it used a Quake engine.
148
13.2%
I'm more likely to give a game a second look if it uses one of the Quake engines.
487
43.4%
Nah, that never factors into my game-buying decisions.
383
34.1%
d00d, i w4r3z 4ll iD g4m3z!
102
9.1%

Mynx: Well, it makes me more curious about a game that I might otherwise not find interesting. Heh heh.
Fargo: I've seen good and bad games made with all sorts of different engines, so it doesn't really matter to me.
Pappy-R: I buy games with id Software and Chevy engines. There's nothing like a Rail with a V-8 on the backend.
Spyke: Well, if the licensee was able to license an id engine, then they must be good, so I'll definitely be interested.
shaithis: I guess you could say I pay attention to games with id engines, but only because I tend to like FPS titles.
Lee'Mon: For me, it has to supercede the original in gameplay, depth, or storyline.
L33t'M0n: For me, it requires one thing: Julie Strain. Mmm...
Hellchick: I tend to give them more attention than I would another game. But hey, you can have an id engine and still make a crappy game.


Do you ever watch machinima films?

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
Of course! "Quad God" rules me.
130
11.5%
I've watched a few of the popular ones - Cineplex is the greatest!
137
12.1%
I only download the ones that are in the news.
134
11.9%
No, I've never seen any.
392
34.9%
Umm, is machinima some kind of porn?
330
29.3%

Mynx: Well you know I.. ooh hey, she said "porn"
Fargo: There aren't enough Quake 3 movies based on the Scrubbing Bubbles commercials.
Pappy-R: Yes! Oh yes! Oh my yes!
Spyke: I would be in the "never seen any" category.
shaithis: I think I saw part of Quad God.
Lee'Mon: 0wned. "Father Frags Best" and "Lamerkatz Chronicles" have permanent places on my drive.
L33t'M0n: I AM Quad God.
Hellchick: Are you kidding?! I've been an extra in them! (Quad God)

416
37%

Mynx: *cough* Dear Mynx *cough*
Fargo: PolyCount is the BIZ.
Pappy-R: Who wants to see my bookmarks?
shaithis: I probably hit the main page more than anything else, just to see what's new.
Lee'Mon: *doublecough* WireHead *doublecough*
L33t'M0n: Actually, I spend my entire week repeatedly voting on the Poll.
Hellchick: I spend a little time going to each of the 350 sites hosted on PQ. I haven't gone home in three weeks.
Spyke: LvL for sure. I need to have every map that's been downloaded at least 2000 times. LvL is the SHOOT.


Why are none of these poll questions attributed to anyone?

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
Because no one is sending any poll questions.
171
15.4%
Because no one is sending any poll questions and Hellchick is slowly going insane.
92
8.3%
Because no one is sending any poll questions and Hellchick is slowly going insane, and will soon be making up poll questions about beans and calling herself "Queen Lucy the XVII". Save her. Save her now.
841
76.1%

Mynx: What Hellchick neglected to mention is that she has been calling herself "Queen Lucy" for ages. She makes me call her "your highness" on ICQ.
Fargo: HELLCHICK is Queen Lucy? Crap, that means I'm probably not a real knight. Now I'm pissed.
Pappy-R: Hellchick is without a doubt sliding, and a lack of reader submitted Poll questions is a contributing factor. Fargo taunting her with riddles about elves and Sim Fairies hasn't helped either though.
Spyke: Because there's a coup going on. But don't tell anyone!
shaithis: I've been through it, Hellchick. I feel your pain.
Lee'Mon: L33t'M0n keeps eating the poll submissions.
L33t'M0n: I didn't do it, nobody saw me do it, you can't prove anything. [wipes chin]
Hellchick: Bow before me, my unwashed masses, so that I may crown you with my Sceptura Leguma! Oh Dear God, help me. [sobs]

 


Who are these people anyway?

Hellchick is the PQ Site Director, or at least has convinced her friends that she is.
Pappy-R is PQ's News Jockey and Part-time Table Dancer.
Spyke does the PQ in Review, the PQ Mailbag, and your girlfriend.
Lee'Mon writes articles and editorials for PQ, which means he's really into finding things to complain about.
shaithis is a former PQ Site Director who now spends his days running GameSpy.com and sharpening the spikes on the top of his cubicle. You think we're kidding.
Fragmaster also used to run PQ, and now manages ClassicGaming.com and the console section of the GameSpy network. He also enjoys the occasional potted tuna.
Mynx is our resident advice expert, knowledgeable about all sorts of topics that the rest of us are just too scared to touch.
Tetsuo performs miracles that mere mortals cannot understand as part of the tech team at GameSpy. He also really likes bacon. Even more than Hellchick.
Fargo has been around since the beginning of PQ. He's been known to camp everything, including the poll.
