In the meantime, I’m a day late for a weekly poll! Last week I was sussing out how many of the readers considered themselves to be total geeks (like me) and it turns out quite a lot of you consider yourself to be one and are proud of it. The question was “What type of geek are you (if any)?” In my opinion, there’s never been a better time to be a geek! The internet makes so much available to us in digital form including old TV shows, comics, video games and well...everything! It also gives us geeks the opportunity to build communities of like-minded people so we don’t have to feel ashamed of what we enjoy. Anyway, let’s look at the results...
I'm a total geek and proud of it! 29 Votes (42%)
I'm a bit of a geek, but only sometimes 24 Votes (34%)
I'm a total geek, but prefer to remain in the closet 10 Votes (14%)
I don't consider myself a geek. I just like video games. 6 Votes (8%)
Geeky and proud of it!
This week I’m going to trial something that may or may not be ongoing. I thought it would be interesting to get you guys to vote on what rating you think I’ll give to the game I’m currently playing. I realise that the majority of you may not have played the game and so the amount of votes that come in might be quite low, but since this is one of the more popular games of this time period, I thought it would be worth giving it a go with this one. I’m also going to give 10 points to the first person to guess the exact score (or closest to it) that I’m going to award it, but be aware that any guesses need to be made in the comments section of this post prior to my second gameplay post (so two posts from here). Good luck and in case you’re wondering, I have an idea of how these points might become useful in future, which I’ll reveal shortly.
Try not to offend Rosella!
