What do you think of paid subsciptions/memberships in games? (Lily x (talk), 2nd August, 2013)

What do you think of paid subsciptions/memberships in games?

They are great, the things you get from the membership is usually good quality so I have no problem with it. 7.08% (231 votes)

Even though I would rather everything be free, paying does have good benefits. 16.28% (531 votes)

I feel that sometimes companies use it to rip us off, but other times it is fine. 20.45% (667 votes)

I don't like the idea much, but some companies need to use it to get enough money. 14.93% (487 votes)

I hate it! It is completley pointless and a waste of money. 25.02% (816 votes)

I don't really care. 16.22% (529 votes)

What is your opinion on downloading games via the E-Shop? (Lily x (talk), 19th July, 2013)

What is your opinion on downloading games via the E-Shop?

I prefer it to physical copies, it means I haven't got a game card to worry about losing and it is often cheaper. 17% (830 votes)

I like the feature to download retro games and smaller games. However, I prefer to buy the physical version for larger games. 53.31% (2,602 votes)

I feel it takes away the charm that you get from buying a game. 11.74% (573 votes)

Should Nintendo earn money from LPs and other such Youtube videos? (Toad85 (talk), 7th June, 2013)

This is a terrible approach that potentially limits the amount and quality of information people receive. 33.31% (1,007 votes)

I don't care how the information is presented/I get my information from sources other than Nintendo. 19.42% (587 votes)

Total Votes: 3,023

What do you think of sequels in the Mario series?

They are great! They continue the story and style from a previous game. 53.39% (2,556 votes)

They can be good, if done properly. However, sometimes they are more like expansion packs. 38.56% (1,846 votes)

I have no real opinion. 4.07% (195 votes)

I like the idea, but not sure if it's best for the series. 30.83% (1,757 votes)

I don't care if it's open world or not 7.64% (390 votes)
