A SimCity forum poll has revealed 74% of players found SimCity 4 "more fun" than Maxis and EA's latest rendition, ahead of today's much anticipated 2.0 patch.
Surprised to see the survey didn't ask the other 26% "WTH are you thinking?!?!?"
The other 26% never played the previous game and that was interpreted as they like the new one
EA would be quick to point out only the minority visit forums. Still, when you factor in the amount of people who washed their hands clean of sim social town, the stat would probably be even higher.
PC gamers got their gtx 690's ready for nothing?? sigh
Perhaps 74% of SimCity players don't appreciate DRM that forces them have a constant internet connection to play a single player game, whilst 26% are alt accounts created by epic moron Adam Orth.
Don't forget about small maps and traffic glitches.
Don't worry EA will spin this with their usual bullshit!
When they gave out the free games I went for Simcity 4. I hope many many others did the same to show them that we hate this DRM bullshit.
Spend 5 minutes on the SimCity forums, and I think the only surprise is that the number was ONLY 74%! The DRM doesn't bother me as much as the design decision to unlink RC from I. Also the small city boundaries. No terrain tools. No randomisation of regions / cities (from what I can see!). Strange traffic AI. Static global market prices. There's a lot of great ideas in SimCity, that are buried under a mountain of bugs right now.
Rest 26% of responders were EA employees/affiliates
The SimCity forums is hardly the place for an objective poll. How many people who buy games frequent that game's forums? Especially a month after release? Not saying that a lot of people, or even most people don't agree with the conclusion, but I wouldn't place my faith on this poll being an accurate representation of SimCity's player base. Especially since the sample size is atm 104 people...
Coz they have to deal with it?
i think i like look of the one i got from a cereal box as a kid lol
