Paper Mario Poll
Ever since E3, information and media from Paper Mario (Mario Story in Japan) has been thrust upon the World Wide Web in such a sudden fashion that we couldn't pass up this opportunity to pick the brains of our readership. However, narrowing the poll question down to one single hard-hitting question was definitely a task with unparalleled difficulty. This poll editor came up with two questions. OH, The humanity! So close to choosing one, yet both questions hold so much meaning! What can be done? One must go...or does it have to be that way? In an unprecedented move that risks both the integrity of the weekly poll and the job of the poll editor himself, this week's poll will contain two, yes TWO separate questions!
So, brace yourselves for question number one!
"Based on the screen shots, how do you like the graphical style of Paper Mario?"
To see the screen shots we are referring to, see our recent update.
STOP! Before you even think about voting, stick around to see question number two!
"Do you think the title Paper Mario was a good move for Nintendo of America?"
Remember, Paper Mario is the U.S. title and Mario Story is the Japanese title!
Now, you are ready. Travel to the main page and cast BOTH votes!
Last week, reviews editor Sensei Phoenix bravely updated the weekly poll in my stead while I was away. He challenged our readers to pick the game they'd want most out of Square's Summer of Adventure 2000 collection. The winner was Chrono Cross, followed by Legend of Mana, and then Threads of Fate. However, the most votes were for buying all three titles! Find the final results to this poll in the archives.
Sensei Phoenix forgot to comment on the poll before last week's so we'll do it now. Worry not, for a public flogging of your beloved reviews editor will ensure this mistake will never be made again! This poll dealt with how people felt about Persona 2: Eternal Punishment being Atlus' mystery RPG. 35% were ecstatic, 16% saw it coming, 26% wish it was another game, and 21% had no clue what we were talking about. Over a quarter of our readers wanted a different game...perhaps they hoped for Growlanser? Either way, see this poll here.
