Poll: What's Your Preferred Way to Spend 40 Gaming Hours?

By Mark Delaney, 5 days ago
Happy Friday TA! Last week's poll was our customary month preview where we ask for your most anticipated upcoming game. January is an interesting month with two major titles and it was those two that took the top spots, though you may be surprised to see their final order. Resident Evil 2 finished ahead of the long-awaited KINGDOM HEARTS III by a margin of about 2%. Behind those two and also polling pretty well was episode three of The Walking Dead: The Final Season, which has fittingly been resurrected from the grave thanks to Robert Kirkman's Skybound label. Another 15% of voters said they'll be taking the month off. Still catching up from the holidays, huh?

This week, we're presenting you with a time-management question. Say you have 40 hours to dedicate to playing video games — be it in a week, a month, whatever — how do you prefer to spend that time? Do you sink into one 40-hour game and see all there is to see? Do you split your time across a few shorter games, or maybe even many very short games? Maybe you don't bother with games that have timed endings like that and you just play multiplayer for 40 hours. Sound off in this week's poll!
