Anyway Elky whatever you choose I for one am good with. Thanks for the poll.


Nah. I really don't think it is people trolling. There is definitely passionate members on all sides of the selections. If nep won, then yeah... it was definitely trolling.

If strategically voting to try to ensure their favorite theme is the theme for the month in question is trolling, then yes, lots of trolling. I don't think people want a tie. They want to WIN, and when there are several popular candidates, people will rally behind them to try to get their preferred outcome. The fact that 3 topics are all pretty close just means those 3 topics were all roughly of equivalent interest to us forum-dwellers.

It'd be great to get an answer on which one of these is taking the victory. I need to start thinking about buying some games regardless of the victor.

Might I suggest, a three-way?

I really want to play Starcraft Remastered, and it's $10 due to the 25th anniversary. I'd love to play some comp stomps with folks for old time's sake.

For what it’s worth, it tried to detect whether there was trolling going on.

I initially had chosen FMV and RTS. A few days ago, there was a 3-way tie at 17 votes each between RTS, Neo and FMV and it also smelled fishy to me. I switched my vote from RTS to Neo-Geo (which I didn’t want, but did for the purposes of my experiment), leading to 16-18-17 for RTS, Neo and FMV, respectively. The theory is that if there was trolling, they would line up at 17 again.

That didn’t happen, either because there is indeed no trolling, or if there was, they sensed something was up. When the votes didn’t equalize the way I suspected, I removed my Neo vote because I wanted FMV to win (sorry, RTS voters!)

Anyway, I’d like to take this opportunity to formally apologize to Ex for throwing a tantrum in last month’s voting thread. It was the wrong reaction to have and it brought everyone down in a forum that’s supposed to be having fun and celebrating classic gaming. So sorry about that man. The ELN month is going great and lots of fascinating discussion is going there. So kudos! :D

I think it was more an issue of indecision than trolling, personally.

Lots of persuasion going on in this thread for sure!
