Poll Position: Pen and Paper RPG’s vs MMORPG’s

For this weeks Poll Position, I asked for your help in picking a topic for the poll. There were some real good suggestions made but I am going to give the nod to The Atomic Punk for suggesting “Traditional or Pen and Paper RPG’s vs MMORPG’s”. So this is what I want to know, given that they are two totally different experience, which of the two do you prefer to play? Please take a moment to vote for your favorite, and comment below with your reasons for your pick. As a bonus I would love to know which games you have played in the past?

 

Myself I have played:

Pen and Paper Games: AD&D 1st edition, AD&D 2nd Edition, Heroes Unlimited ( a superhero rpg ), RIFTS, Palladium Fantasy, Mechton, and Vampire the Masquerade.

MMORPG’s: Everquest, Guild Wars, Final Fantasy XI, World Of Warcraft ( for a very short time ), Shaiya, Dungeons & Dragons Online, and DC Universe Online.

All in all while I enjoy both experiences I have to say that if I had to pick a favorite I would go with the old school pen and paper rpg’s. There is just something about getting together with some real good friends around a table that you lose with MMORPG’s. to throw in a little bonus answer my favorite game of all the pen and paper games I hav e played would have to be RIFTS.

Poll Position: Movie Time!

IM3 vs MOS

 

This weeks poll position question is simple. Out of the two summer of 2013 superhero movies that have currently been released, Iron Man 3 and Man Of Steel which do YOU consider to be the better superhero movie, the better block buster if you will?

I have not seen either movie as of yet so can not give my own opinion on this topic however I’d be highly interested to hear yours. Take a moment to vote and be sure to leave a comment below explaining your choice.

 

Poll Position: The Doctor

This weeks poll position I ask the question, “Who is the better Doctor?” A simple question it is likely not to have such a simple answer! I am limiting my “official” answers on the poll to the Three Doctors we have seen thus far on the modern adaption of Doctor Who, however I have left the poll open for you to add your own answers if you are an old school Whovian who just has to support Jon Pertwee, or Tom Baker, etc.

Poll Position: Aquaman vs Namor

Building off of JR’s “Big Question” from last week this weeks poll position is a classic verses battle between DC’s and Marvel’s opposing kings of the sea. I want to know who you think would win an all out knock down drag out battle between Aquaman and Namor the Sub Mariner ?

Poll Position: DC vs Marvel

DC vs Marvel

 

This weeks poll position is a simple one, though one that is likely to be heated. I want to know which of the big two is your favorite, DC or Marvel Comics!

Personally I will have to go with Marvel, though out of my top five superheroes the top three are from DC. All in all I feel that Marvel is the more believable universe so that is why I have to say “Make Mine Marvel!”

Poll Position: Uniformity!!

This weeks poll position question is Do you think that SuperHero Teams should have a common matching uniform?

 

Personally I don’t think that the Heroes ( or villains for that matter ) need to have matching costumes, however they should have some kind of common element to tie them all together. Weather that element is a matching color scheme, or a prominent team logo ect. I believe the team members needs something that allows you to identify them as a member of that team at a glance. SO what do you think ? Should Super Teams have a matching uniform ? Take a moment to let us know by voting in the poll and leave a comment below to let us know why you feel the way you do!

 

Poll Position: The Iron Wardrobe

This weeks poll position will be taking a look at a selection of Iron Man Armors. Now there are far more versions of the Iron Man armor than I can conveniently list on this poll so I went ahead a selected 10 models out of all the options out there. My question is out of these 10 Iron Man armor models which is your favorite.  Please take a moment to vote in the poll and leave a comment below on why you choose what you choose.  ( Images After the Jump )

Poll Position: Anime vs Western Cartoons

Anime vs WC

 

 

Folks this weeks Poll Position I am going to ask you a simple question. Which do you prefer to watch Western Style Cartoons or Japanese Anime?

 

I personally prefer anime over most western cartoon. There is just something about Anime that appeals to me over most cartoons you see on us TV. Don’t get me wrong there are a far number of cartoons that I enjoy but if given a choice of watching say Avengers: Earths Mightiest Heroes or Ranma 1/2 I will choose watching Ranma 1/2.
