Poll #14 results

Poll #14 has concluded and the results are in...

Which New Play Control! games have you gotten or are planning on getting? (40 total votes)
  • Chibi-Robo - 47% (19 votes)
  • Donkey Kong Jungle Beat - 20% (8 votes)
  • Mario Power Tennis - 12% (5 votes)
  • Metroid Prime - 57% (23 votes)
  • Metroid Prime 2: Echoes - 50% (20 votes)
  • Pikmin - 47% (19 votes)
  • Pikmin 2 - 65% (26 votes)
Note: Voters could vote for more than one, which explains why the percentages don't add up to 100.

As you can see from the above results, both of the Pikmin games and both of the Metroid Prime games are the most popular. Pikmin 2 is the most popular of them all, while the original Metroid Prime comes in second. On the opposite end of the spectrum are Jungle Beat and Mario Power Tennis, coming in second to last and last respectively. I'm willing to bet that the reason Mario Power Tennis is so low is because the game is already out and wasn't received well by critics. As for Donkey Kong Jungle Beat? I'm guessing people aren't up for the change from bongo controls to analog stick and buttons.

I voted much like the majority of voters, for both Pikmins and both Metroid Primes. I loved both Metroid Prime 3 and the New Play Control! version of Pikmin, so I'm really looking forward to both Pikmin 2 and the prequels to Corruption.

And last but not least, there's, once again, a new poll up. Other than word of mouth, gaming magazines used to be one of the top resources for game news/previews/reviews back before the days of the internet. But today, various websites and blogs provides a much faster way to get gaming news and reviews. Even so, there still are a good number of game magazines available today. My question this time around is, "Do you read gaming magazines?"
