We don't need your help. However, if you feel the polls are one sided or biased, and there is an idea for one you'd like to suggest, please put it forward - the more ideas the merrier.

The games in this poll were chosen from many suggestions, it just so happened that the majority were RPG's.*




*I'm lying it's a conspiracy. RPG's did 9/11.

RPGs...are some of the most buggy games there ever are. They are normally bigger worlds and the player can interact with the game in a lot more ways then one normally can. This opens up the possibility for bugs all over the place, even with proper Beta testing players will and do things in such different ways that bugs will be found. Adventure games tend to cop this as well, a lot of the later Sierra games seemed to be rather buggy, but in reality it was problems being caused by higher CPU speeds and the game using the CPU to time things, the CPUs got so fast the game just crashed at those points.

And the poll isn't buggy, it is working as intended.

Hmm..
that's why yoga started 6 times this buggy game Ultima 8 and never passed but stopped at Pits of Dead?

No more attempts will be started, Master Scatty.

I spent one years of my life with that game..
Rats!!


PS: I have no any problem with MOM.

I doubt it's because of the bugs in the game
Though there are some spooky ones, like with that one acolyte who has a house in Tenebrae also, Beren I think, who sometimes decides to go walking on molten stone at Demon's Crag during his hours there, and begins to throw fireballs at you because the lava turns out too hot for his feet. Happens sometimes with nameless students there too, if they go walking too far from the buildings.
Or was it because you killed Malchir before you were supposed to (like casting spells in wrong sequence at him at the final test, before the ritual of Summoning Pyros happens, at which moment he attacks you)? In any case, you can't kill Beren, but he can be pushed by his own fireball / firebolt explosions (if you're close enough standing to him) into the lava and drown. The game tends to hang dead soon after that though, more often than not.

That's no bug though. That's bad scripting.

My, I made a mistake. Turns out I laughed because I thought Fleabass had said that his vote for the best buggy game was for the daily quiz, not the weekly poll.

So my vote is for the daily screenshot quiz

The only conclusive answer this poll has given is that they're all buggy and great games. Play them all folks!

In fact, Japo read my mind, because I made a typo: I really meant the "daily quiz"...
