Translation: FPS. Thanks for voting! You do realize that it is a multiple choice poll right?

RTS are like Command & Conquer, Ground Control etc. where you control armies. So all three are not compatible, or the logistic of creating such a game would be a nightmare.

What is so interesting to me about a crew based type game, is that it is a new genre.

Though that thought has crossed my mind and that it is a micro sample, I disagree!

They are gamers with a wide spectrum of interests. I do think they represent what gamers want, and I do not think they voted to please anyone. If that poll would have taken place when GB was announced, or this site created, then yes that poll would have been skewed.

If I knew how, I would totally engage that project without a doubt in my head.

oh and just realized something interesting about this poll.

Not to play with numbers here, but It's conceivable that "sub sim" and "crew based" could easily be merged. So we might(?) be looking at an enormous potential for that genre.

don't even mention ww2 I'm going to scream. Yes I chose ss also and others. That's make 3 of us at 14%. If this micro sample is correct, 14% of the market when you have the monopoly is quite a bit, as there are none other out there. And the clientele might be more mature and predisposed to buy instead of torrenting it. I don't understand what is going on in the industry really.

FPSs on the other hand are more popular, but may be suffering from a few basic problems. The genre might be exhausted as we have been spoiled over the years, been there done that. Not to mention the ocean of competition from big studios. So what ever % it might occupy, one must divide that, at least by 5, I would imagine.

Crew based is now at 27% with 6 votes/ 2nd place...

If the bottom line when making video games is money, then I'm confused.
