Welcome to this brand-spankin’-new TechnoBuffalo feature we’re going to try and run once every week. We’ve got ourselves an outstanding, talkative community and we’re looking to harness that and spur it along with a weekly debate topic.
So, every Friday, I’ll toss up a debatable challenge, you folks will vote and discuss. I’ll also be posting the results of the previous week’s poll with a little editorialization on the results.
Before we get to this week’s question, let’s go over the poll we posed on September 16th, 2011.
We asked you folks which types of portable gamers you considered yourselves. The results, quite honestly, were not at all surprising. This is a tech blog, you guys love your phones and gizmos, so a smartphone gaming preference would have been the safe bet.
Here’s the visual breakdown of our results.
The question: What type of portable gamer are you?
I love that so many of you game on everything. I know that, for a lot of gamers, system and platform preference comes down to money. You pick the console or system you think you’ll like best based on your bank account. If we were all billionaires, I’m sure we’d all buy every game, console and hardware update that drops.
I still can’t get behind smartphone gaming as my top pick. It just doesn’t stand, to me, as the best way to game on the go. Short bursts? Yeah, I’ll bust out my phone and fling some birds or blitz some bejewels. I just need a nice, physical set of buttons for real gaming.
But hey, if you love ’em, more power to ya.
Now, let’s head to this week’s poll!
