Why is this a problem, exactly? Have we really run out of things to discuss as a board that THIS is what we come to?

Thats why we have a LOT of another threads here, so we can choose one to participate. This is even on the Classic area, so people wont complain about the subject lol

This thread's a little pointless because the above is really the only solution that can happen. And the poll's fucking pointless. Don't ask a question if you don't plan on including "no" as an option.

I agree with that, since we cant even see the results without voting. Without a 'no" I will not vote. But it seems to be more like a joke than a serious poll anyway so thats fine.

Me too.
This is not a serious thing. We're just tossing ideas all over the place.
I could add a "no" option but it would defeat the purpose of the topic poster, I think.

Wait, this was a poll post? I never even knew that! I had to go back to the first page and look again.

Abnormal Freak has a really small poll.  ;D

Don't make fun of my pole. :'(


And having two "yes" options does make the poll pointless. Which was kind of the point.

I just wanted to gripe, be an asshole, and hopefully be amusing while doing so.

Actually, I found the pole to be pretty fun.
Now I'm tired, eternally walking... forever dying, and never stopping. I feel in sorrow, all I see is white. I’m following a blind way beneath a sad sky.

Haha! They can't let go one possibility of joke! You are all really, really good!

I don't remember it, either...
Did you use sleep powder?

Oh no, don't mind me, that was part of another thread!  :P

Pfil & Abnormal, y'all crack me up! xD

I think using Classicvania for classic games and maybe Modernvania for the...huh huh Castleroids. That way, we could be hipsters and use a term like "post-modernvania" for all the newer stuff.

How about Classic Castlevania Games and Map-Based Castlevania Games?
MapVania? Just saying...  :P

Haha, I don't find it creepy, I find it cute and funny! I prefer people like that instead of dudebros who drink beer and play sports and have that super macho attitude that they think they rule the world (and the same goes for women, though popular girls' activities are different, but the essence is the same).
I'm also single and spend my hours playing games, watching anime, etc., except when I travel for a weekend and disconnect myself from my technology addiction (and enjoy a little company  ;)).
But you get my point. I defend geeks because I am one.
