Portables Poll

Video game consoles have served RPG fans well, but when many of us are on the road, or away from a TV, portable systems can be a remedy for boredom. However, the handhelds available these days are a far cry from the dot matrix hard-to-see Gameboys and now sport color reminiscent of the days of Game Gear (except less expensive).

The only thing these years of portable gaming have had in common is that RPGs were usually few and far between and when we found them, they were often not that great. While many think this hasn't changed much in the past few years, we pose the following question:

"Which portable game console currently shows the most potential in providing the best RPGs to its consumers?"

Feel free to check out our pictures or reviews to help you decide, and cast your vote on the main page!

Last week, I think I asked the most obvious question in this weekly poll's history. Let's face it, our readers want to buy Dragon Quest VII when and if it comes to the U.S.! Some would import, some didn't want it at all, but most want it in English and want it now! Anyway, you can see this poll in the poll archives.

That's it for this week. I'm heading to Sakura Con 2000 today so you can expect a full report later this week.
