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.
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.
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.
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 ?
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!"
