This poll has two purposes. The first is run a poll to answer a question. I’ve asked this question before, but “state your preference in the comments” makes for muddled and difficult-to interpret results.
The second is to test out this polling platform. I’ve messed with lots of plugins and widgets for running polls, and they were all varying flavors of broken. Maybe it takes the user away from my site when they vote so it can shower them with ads and skeevy download links. Maybe the embed code is so complicated it confuses WordPress. Maybe it has some annoying limit to the number of answers, or it allows instant no-effort ballot stuffingAll polls are susceptible to ballot stuffing in a world of proxy servers, but at the very least, users should have to go to some sort of trouble to do it.. Maybe it requires a WordPress plugin that’s hasn’t been updated in 3 years and is many WordPress versions out of date. Or it wants me to create a premium account to see the results. It’s hilarious to me that we live in a world where it’s effortless to embed 1080p video on a webpage for free, but a simple text-based poll is apparently too much to ask.
Anyway. I’m trying out a new site. We’ll see how it goes:
Of course, my work is driven more by my passions than public opinion, so this poll probably won’t change my output. But I do get curious about this sort of thing from time to time.
Also, I can confirm that our Fallout 4 series is going to conclude in the next block of episodes. After that? The next game is already chosen. I’ll give you a hint: It’s a PS4 exclusive from a developer that’s really, really large.
And that poll is broken for some people. It’s unreliable and sometimes requires multiple refreshes to load. (Well, the ADVERTISEMENT part always loads. Of course.)
So let’s try a Google form:
Yuck. I don’t like how much space it wastes. But it’s Google, so at least it works.

Stop Asking Me to Play Dark Souls!
An unhinged rant where I maybe slightly over-reacted to the water torture of Souls evangelism.
