POLL QUESTION HERE SINCE I DON’T KNOW HOW POLLS WORK: IS THERE A VIDEO GAME THAT YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE THE ONLY PERSON AT SELECT BUTTON TO HAVE PLAYED?
- Who cares dummy
During the “critically maligned games that aren’t bad” thread from a week or so back when it took a brief detour into “there are so many games out there that many solid ones will never be found” land this thought crossed my mind and has continued to do so since. I feel that SB collectively has done a good job introducing a bunch of people here to numerous lesser known games that they otherwise would have never heard about. That means that there are a bunch of games that just a few people here have played… but are there a lot of games that only one person here has played? Do most people here think that they are the only ones at SB to have played a given game, or do they think that pretty much every game they have tried has been tried by at least one other person here?
So I made a topic and a poll! That makes this vaguely scientific.
My answer is that yes there are a few games that I believe I am the only person here to have tried, mainly because of the whole “random game names” thing has resulted in me trying a few truly random games such as Nuvavult or The Explorer of Night. There are also a few PC games that individual people not from SB turned me on to (posted on the same forum as the guy who made Treasure Tower for a number of years and hence played a good bit of his Crystal Towers II), and as I am old and started gaming on the Colecovision it is possible one of the games I had for it wasn’t ported to anything else and hence few here would have had a chance to stumble upon it (like Pepper II).
…I also hope I was the only person here dumb enough to try Datura but I fear others also made that mistake.
