Popular Opinion — A Video Game Poll at Evil Avatar
What is this?
I read video game reviews... lots of video game reviews. I want to know if a game is worth my time and money. You can average scores from critics to get an idea of how good a game is, but critical opinions can sometimes be out of touch with "the common gamer" or affected by the hype around a game's release, when reviews are typically published.
I like the idea of a score, but I would rather have the opinions come from real gamers, with real expectations, and I want it after the hype has died down. Basically, I want to take a poll of all my friends who have played it. I want the Popular Opinion.
Popular Opinion is a simple weekly poll posted at Evil Avatar, a great gaming news and discussion site. Each poll is posted for one or two games at a time, and at least one month after the game's release date. The poll uses just four options to gauge opinion, listed below. The results are averaged and reported here. This is all completely non-scientific, but then again, so is asking a bunch of your friends. =)
I hope you find this useful, and thanks for looking! Feel free to send me a private message at Evil Avatar with any feedback or suggestions for future polls.
