Are Polls Easier Than Questions?

We’ve decided to switch things up a little here at ShufflingDead this week. I want to know if clicking a button and voting on a poll is easier than answering a question with your own words.

So, this week, the Question of the Week has become the Poll of the Week, the test becoming multiple choice instead of long answer. Does the internet wish to speak to me with numbers instead of words? Tough shit, internet, because I don’t speak binary.

What do you all think?

Question: Sharing Time?

So after an evening of Facebook status trolling, Starcraft II custom games, and banana bread flavored beer (it’s as absolutely delicious as it sounds), I still have no real question in mind for this week.

This week’s question is going to be less about me pushing my opinions at you with my often largely biased and rather ridiculous hyperbole. This week is all about you. Yes, you, specifically you. Tell me something about you that I don’t already know. Go on, it’s just me and the collective hive mind of the internet here, no need to be shy. What is one thing that I don’t know about you?

Question: What Was the Best Game You Played in 2010?

January 14, 2011 Question 1 Comment

I’m seeing all the game sites on the internet light up with polls and reviews and giant circle-jerks about how just how great some of 2010’s game releases were, how well they did in sales, reviews, etc. But I’m not overly interested in that, everyone else is covering that stuff. And most of it is making Newbs shake with rage.

What I am interested in is what games you actually played in 2010. I played a ton of games this year that weren’t released in 2010, and the experience was more than satisfactory. Whether you ran out and bought Halo: Reach, just plugged in Borderlands or Left for Dead for another playthrough, or dusted off the old NES for some vintage Zelda action, that’s what I want to hear about. The games that actually mattered enough for you to play. So, what was the best game you played in 2010?

Question of the Week: iPhone Vs. Android

January 7, 2011 Question 3 Comments

Recently, I’ve been hearing a lot of discussion/rage/rants regarding the debatable advantages of some of the new ‘in’ things; namely the iPhone and the Android systems for cellular phone usage.

Personally, I’m loathe to weigh in on either side. I just got finished hating the Blackberry (commonly known among all addicted users as a “Crackberry”) and really don’t need to pick up more handhelds to be disgusted by on principle.

So what do you all think? Is Steve Jobs still a maniacal monster up in his fortress made of stacked 100 dollar bills? Does he have the ‘it’ thing for 2011? Or is he desperately clinging to a format that he has managed to convince enough loudmouthed consumers to swear by profusely, but is technologically inferior?

So, ShufflingDead readers, tell me what you think. iPhone or Android?

Question of the Week: What Was Your Best Moment of 2010?

This is it: 2010 is over as of midnight tonight. I know, I know, phrases like “where did the year go?” “OMG, it’s 2011!” and “I’m never drinking again…” will no doubt be assaulting you via the social networks of Facebook, Twitter, and any other site you happen to visit over the next few days. Enjoy that.

Upon reflecting this past year, I feel like I’ve accomplished a decent amount of stuff. No doubt you managed to gain some XP through the many moments you participated in. But I just need you to pick one and tell me about it. Tell me your proudest moment of this past year. Don’t tell me your New Year’s Resolutions, don’t tell me your goals for this next year, I’m probably barely interested. Just tell me one thing: What Was Your Best Moment of 2010?
