CTF?!? What is that, some kind of root beer or something?
666
17.8%

Sluggo: Power Amp, baby!
Moltar: I make a quick dash for the bathroom, I have a small bladder.
Fargo: It's all about the Autotech.
Mix: I go for the console. I must bind "pweened" to a key right away. Right, Lowtax?
Lowtax: The next idiot that says "pweened" gets punched in the face.
shaithis: I think CTF is actually a prune-based drink, much like Dr Pepper. Prunes are a staple in many diets, however I find them disturbing, and do not wish to talk about them further.

9.4%

Sluggo: If you don't have a 3D card by now, what are you doing here? ;-)
Moltar: I'm so ticked that it is usually the only thing I contemplate when I'm in the bathroom.
Fargo: Remember the way you felt when Doom wouldn't run on your 386? Did it really matter? ;)
Mix: I thought they were given out at birth now... "Mrs. Smith, you have a beautiful baby boy... and a TNT."
shaithis: I've had a 3D card for almost as long as I've had a PC cabable of running software Quake1, so I don't mind much.
Lowtax: Does a Virge count as a "3D" card? Or is it more like "2.9D"?

I don't deathmatch.
359
9.5%

Sluggo: The part where Lowtax shoots me. That happens a lot.
Moltar: The hardest part of deathmatches is not being able to pause the game and use the bathroom during matches.
Fargo: The hardest part is controlling the level -- making sure Lowtax doesn't get the rocket launcher, and then yelling, "Pweened!" just to tick him off.
Lowtax: I warned ya about saying that, bitch!!! (fistikuffs ensue)
Fargo: Ow! I'll never say such an obviously idiotic word such as "pweened" ever again, Lowtax! Especially not when you're in charge of the polls! By the way, you are a very handsome man.
Mix: Not dying.
shaithis: Trying to console myself after getting the living christ beaten out of me by CRT and some of the others around here.

Video games are getting a bad rap lately in society. Is it justified?

This is too deep for a PQ poll question.
803
21.2%

Moltar: I busted out a bad rap once... but I was in the bathroom and nobody heard it.
Lowtax: You do way too much in the bathroom, Moltar. I just write my columns there.
Fargo: This is definitely the most scientific survey ever done on the subject.
Mix: If I couldn't play Quake, I would have listen to my talking poodle Sandy and killed 400 people by now. Sandy has a temper.
shaithis: Society has a need to lay blame, and rarely likes to lay it on themselves. Thus, entertainment media often falls "under the gun" so to speak. It's pathetic that people cannot accept responsibility for their own actions, and those of their children. Hmm... that was too deep for a poll answer, wasn't it?

Moltar: Lag is that thing that happens when you think you need to pee and then can't so the feeling goes away... and then once you return to your desk that feeling comes back for real.
Fargo: It's lag when I'm losing. ; )
Mix: Lag is whatever is keeping me from winning.
shaithis: Lag is anything over a 60 ping. hee hee! I'm so spoiled.
Lowtax: Screw lag, it's all about the Zbots.

Moltar: Drink lots of water.
Fargo: I walk around doing a cheesy Doctor Evil impression until Lowtax finally hauls off and slugs me. : )
Lowtax: Fargo, all of your impersonations are cheesy!
Mix: Sandy doesn't like me to leave the house.
shaithis: Work, or sleep. Between those two, and Quake, you've pretty much covered my day.
