RPGWatch - New Poll

by Dhruin, 2008-04-08 14:23:43

In our last poll, we asked about RPG elements.  This is always a difficult one, because - as many readers quite rightly point out - it's often hard to separate what makes a game enjoyable.

At any rate, NPC interaction squeaked into first place with 32%, while character development was just behind at 31%.  Exploration scored highly with 23% and then questing (6%), combat (5%) and puzzles (a little over 1%).

It's interesting to compare these results with the actual time spent on different elements in the average game - particularly with combat. Do we really prefer NPC interaction that much more - or does it mean the average RPG just doesn't have compelling combat?

This time, following on from a recent newsbit that inspired a few comments, we're asking about your favourite series.  Bear in mind the polls only support 10 options so some just had to miss out.  Over to you...
