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.
The inspiration for this week’s question comes from Turkey Day in the States. A lot of the herd members will be home with their folks or families for the weekend, and that means they’re likely have to make some decisions regarding which systems and games will make the trek home.
In the name of boredom and killing time on airplanes, we want to hear what you’ll be playing over the weekend.
But! Before we get to that, let’s take a look at last week’s results.
A good portion of you readers called me out on this poll, and I’ll say that I deserved it. Saints Row and Grand Theft Auto, in my opinion, are two completely different experiences and really should only be compared in mechanics and genre. Sure, Rockstar wrote the template for design, but Saints Row has its own set of merits that pull it out of the pack of GTA wannabes.
In my opinion, each game should hold an equal amount of respect from the community. They both know exactly what types of experiences they’re supposed to provide, and they both meet and exceed those demands consistently. To each their own, as far as I’m concerned, because there is no “better” when it comes to these two games.
Enough of that, let’s head to this week’s question…
Rather than create a full poll for this week’s picks, given that there are no less than six trillion great games up for purchase this holiday, we’ve decided to just toss the question out for you folks to answer in the comment section below. We’ll be rolling through them over this next week and figuring out the majority choice for the post we write up for next Friday.
Which game(s) will you be playing over the holiday (or normal) weekend?
