Q: Have you ever played the mobile phone versions of Baldur's Gate or Neverwinter Nights?
(346 votes total)

No (334) 97%
Yes (12) 3%

Considering the results of this poll it's pretty clear that practically no one here (apart from the 3% of exceptions to the rule) has played the mobile version of either Baldur's Gate or Neverwinter Nights. Throughout this poll's run I've been getting blank stares from people who've never heard of the mobile versions, so let me point out that we've posted a few news articles on both of the games, so you can search our news archives for Baldur's Gate or Neverwinter Nights Mobile if you are interested in more information. Here are also the links to official sites for both: Baldur's Gate Mobile and Neverwinter Nights Mobile.

Q: Of the (A)D&D computer games & expansions THAT YOU OWN, how many are legal copies?
(801 votes total)

The remaining 11% of votes went to having around 1/2 legal copies (4%), then around 3/4 (3%), followed by 1/4 (2%) and the last 2% going to having hardly any legal copies of (A)D&D games & expansions.

One (16) 3%
None (12) 2%

A huge number of our visitors who participated in the poll (92%) have seen all three of Jackson's The Lord of the Rings movies, either the theatrical or extended editions (or both).

4% of those who voted have seen only two of the movies, 3% have seen only one movie, and, finally, only 2% of those who participated in the poll haven't seen any of Jackson's The Lord of the Rings movies.

Q: Do you register the games you buy?

Yes, definitely (173) 29%

(903 votes total)

Yes, 1-3 times (445) 49%

12% of those who voted have read it 4-6 times.

Only 10% of the people who participated in the poll haven't read The Lord of the Rings yet (but intend to at some point). Another 7% also have not read it yet, but they never intend to either.

Lastly, 5% of those who voted read it 7-9 times.

Q: Which of the games (expansions included) covered on SP did you (re)play last?
(967 votes total)

Baldur's Gate 2 (335) 35%
Neverwinter Nights (225) 23%
Icewind Dale 2 (113) 12%
Baldur's Gate (81) 8%
Planescape: Torment (76) 8%
The Temple of Elemental Evil (73) 8%
Icewind Dale (42) 4%
Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone (13) 1%
Pool of Radiance: RoMD (9) 1%

First of all, thanks to Arabwel for this really good poll idea, which has proven quite popular with the SP visitors.

The fact that the majority of those who voted (35%) (re)played Baldur's Gate 2 and/or its expansion last doesn't really come as a surprise, though the game's longevity continues to amaze me. When oh when, if ever, are we going to get another D&D CRPG with so much detail and gameplay right out of the box?

A somewhat more distant second is Neverwinter Nights and/or its expansions, (re)played last by 23% of poll participants.

Icewind Dale 2 is still reasonably popular, and has been (re)played last by 12% of the people who voted in our poll.

The original Baldur's Gate and/or its expansion is not that popular any more, but taking into account that its release was 7 years ago (lordy, lordy, I'm feeling old), it is still holding on marvelously, considering 8% of those who voted (re)played it last.

Another 8% of votes had been cast in favour of Planescape: Torment, an excellent CRPG whose kind we are not likely to see again anytime soon.

The Temple of Elemental Evil, a relatively recent release, isn't doing all that well, considering only another 8% of those who voted (re)played it last.

Near the end of the list is the original Icewind Dale and/or its expansions, (re)played last by 4% of poll participants.

The losers of this poll are Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone (the most recently released D&D game) and Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor, each with 1% of votes.

Q: On a scale of 1 to 5, how would you rate the expired year 2004?
(379 votes total)

3 (125) 33%
4 (94) 25%
2 (79) 21%
1 (worst) (51) 13%
5 (best) (30) 8%

We can sum up this poll by saying that the majority of poll participants (clear 33%) consider 2004 an OK year, that 34% consider it a (pretty) bad year (ratings 1 & 2 combined), and that another 33% (ratings 4 & 5 combined) consider it a (pretty) successful year. I love it when seemingly random numbers come together to form such a nice arrangement.

Just for fun, I went through the archives and dug up the results of the same poll we conducted for year 2003. While the percentages were a bit different, the numerical order (3, 4, 2, 1 and 5) was the same as this year. Here are the results of that old poll for comparison:

Overall, people have voted 2003 to be a somewhat mediocre year. The majority (40%), rated it 3/5. 29% of poll participants were a bit happier with it, rating it 4/5. 16% rated it 2/5, a pretty bad score, beaten by the 9% of those who voted the year 2003 1/5. 6% of those who voted, however, were so happy with 2003, that they rated it 5/5.

Q: Did you get any PC games for Christmas, or expect to get them for New Year?
(312 votes total)

No (186) 60%
Yes, CRPGs among them (80) 26%
Yes, but no CRPGs (36) 12%
Maybe, not sure yet (10) 3%

Curiously enough, the majority of poll participants (60%) did not get any PC games as gifts for Christmas or New Year.

26%, however, did get one or more games, with CRPGs among them.

Another 12% of those who voted also got some PC games, but not any CRPGs.

At the time of voting, only 3% of those who participated in the poll were not sure if they got/will get any PC games for Christmas or New Year.

Q: What kind of personal computer do you play games on?
(453 votes total)

Desktop (365) 81%
Both (53) 12%
Laptop (30) 7%
I don't play any computer games (5) 1%

Most of the poll participants (81%) play games on a desktop personal computer.

A much smaller number, 12%, play games on both desktops and laptops.

7% of those who voted play games only on a laptop.

Finally, a whole percent of the people who voted don't play any computer games at all.

Q: Have you played BioWare's "Witch's Wake" Neverwinter Nights module?
(375 votes total)

No, neither version (198) 53%
Yes, the original, free version (153) 41%
Yes, the remastered, "premium" version (14) 4%
Yes, both versions (10) 3%

The majority of poll participants (53%) haven't played the original, free version of Witch's Wake Neverwinter Nights module, nor the remastered, "premium" version BioWare is now selling through their online store.

However, quite a large number of people who voted in this poll (41%) have played the original, free version of Witch's Wake.

The remaining 4% of those who voted have played only the remastered, "premium" version of Witch's Wake, and the final 3% of participants in the poll have played both the original, free version, and the "premium" version of Witch's Wake. Considering we ran this poll only a couple of weeks after the "premium" version became available, the odds certainly seem favourable for BioWare that they will make a profit with the "premium" modules.

Q: Which play aspect in a CRPG is the most important to you?
(486 votes total)

Single-player (353) 73%
Depends on the game (82) 17%
Single and Multi-player equally (34) 7%
Multi-player (17) 3%

Not surprisingly, single-player is the most important play aspect in a CRPG to the wide majority our visitors (73%) who voted in the poll.

To 17% of those who voted in our poll, the most important play aspect in a CRPG depends on what the game is like.

Only 7% of poll participants think that single and multi-player are equally important in a CRPG.

Finally, a mere 3% of those who voted consider multi-player to be the most important play aspect in a CRPG.

Surprisingly, 13% of the people who voted in the poll don't take any NPCs into their party in Baldur's Gate 2.

The remaining options of 1-4 NPCs in the party are much less popular. 8% of those who voted in the poll take 4 NPCs, 5% take 3, and 2% take 2, and another 2% take 1 NPC into their party in Baldur's Gate 2.

Q: What are your feelings towards the kobold henchman Deekin (SoU, HotU)?
(558 votes total)

He's very amusing, I love him! (272) 49%
He's ok, but nothing special (97) 17%
He's highly annoying, I can't stand him (74) 13%
I have no feelings whatsoever for him (60) 11%
He's somewhat irritating (55) 10%

Almost half of the poll participants (49%) feel that the kobold henchman Deekin from Shadows of Undrentide and Hordes of the Underdark is very amusing, and love him.

17% of those who voted still think that Deekin is ok, but don't think that there is anything particularly special about him.

On the other hand, 13% of our visitors who voted in the poll can't stand Deekin and consider him highly annoying.

11% of votes were contributed by people who have no feelings whatsoever for Deekin, so presumably neither good nor bad ones.

Lastly, 10% of the people who participated in the poll consider Deekin to be somewhat irritating.

Q: Which of the following games & expansions do you own?
(753 votes total)

NWN + both expansions (485) 64%

12% of the poll participants own Neverwinter Nights only, while another 12% don't own any Neverwinter Nights games whatsoever.

8% of those who voted own Neverwinter Nights and Shadows of Undrentide.

The remaining 4% of the people who voted in our poll own Neverwinter Nights and Hordes of the Underdark.

Q: Are you going to buy any of BioWare's premium Neverwinter Nights modules?
(452 votes total)

No, I won't (150) 33%
Maybe, after I read/hear some opinions on them (115) 25%
Yes, definitely (82) 18%
I would, but I don't have a credit card (63) 14%
I would if the modules didn't require online verification (42) 9%

A third of the people who voted in the poll (33%) answered that they will not buy any of BioWare's new premium Neverwinter Nights modules.

A quarter of poll participants (25%) may buy some of them, but only after they read or hear some opinions on the modules.

On the other hand, 18% of our visitors who voted in the poll are definitely going to buy some of the premium modules.

14% of those who voted say that they would buy them, but don't have a credit card, so no means of paying for the modules.

Finally, 9% of the people who voted are so bothered with the idea of online verification of the legality of the modules every time they wanted to play them, that this prevents them from buying the modules they otherwise would.

No preference (45) 8%

Apparently, the majority of poll participants (60%) have readily accepted the 3rd/3.5 edition of D&D as their preferred ruleset in D&D CRPGs.

However, 2nd edition D&D (AD&D) is still the preferred ruleset of 32% of those who voted in the poll.

Only 8% of our visitors who voted in the poll have no preference when it comes to the D&D ruleset used in D&D CRPGs.

Q: Do you think Baldur's Gate 3 could ever come near the quality of the original Baldur's Gate titles, since it will be done in 3D?
(925 votes total)

Possibly, if enough effort is put into into all aspects of the game, not just graphics (533) 58%
Doubtfully, based on my experience with CRPGs in 3D (210) 23%
Never, Baldur's Gate 3 in any kind of 3D could never hope to be of the same quality as previous BG titles (182) 20%

Some relevant comments & explanations on this poll were made here, so please read that for more information.

Q: Which of the upcoming D&D games are you looking forward to the most?
(932 votes total)

Baldur's Gate 3 (714) 77%
Neverwinter Nights 2 (150) 16%
D&D Online (43) 5%
D&D Real-time Strategy (25) 3%

Hardly surprisingly, the overwhelming majority of poll participants (77%) are looking forward to the next Baldur's Gate the most. Since no details on who is making Baldur's Gate 3 are known at this point (apart from the fact that it is being made), we can only guess what the outcome will be like. One thing is certain, however - the expectations are very high.

Another game still shrouded in mystery, the sequel to Neverwinter Nights is being much less eagerly anticipated among our visitors who voted in the poll. Only 16% voted that they are looking forward to Neverwinter Nights 2 the most.

Dungeons & Dragons Online, the D&D MMORPG, is being most eagerly anticipated by 5% of the people who voted.

The upcoming D&D title people are least looking forward to (only 3% of the votes) is the D&D RTS, which has been renamed to Dragonshard Wars earlier this week. It'll be interesting to see what the fate of this Eberron-based RTS will be.

Q: Do you buy paperback or hardcover books?
(246 votes total)

4 (7) 4%
More than 5 (7) 4%

Although the number of people who voted in the poll is quite small, of those that did, the majority (70%) voted that they are interested in reading or have already read some of the mod reviews posted on SP. On the other hand, 30% of poll participants voted that they are not interested in reading the reviews.

Q: Do you think coverage of the upcoming Dragon Age, the first non-D&D game on Sorcerer's Place, is a good idea?
(257 votes total)

Yes, definitely! (142) 55%
Undecided at this point (72) 28%
No, stick to D&D only! (43) 17%

Obviously there are not that many conservative D&D-only gamers around SP, since the majority of poll participants (55%) have voted in favour of covering the upcoming Dragon Age on Sorcerer's Place.

28% of those who voted are still undecided at this point whether covering Dragon Age is a good idea or not.

Only 17% of the people who voted think that SP should stick to only D&D games.

Not interested (92) 38%
Yes, very interested (58) 24%
Somewhat interested (46) 19%
Reasonably interested (43) 18%

The poll results don't really require any commentary, so I'll just mention again, in case you haven't heard yet, that we've started coverage of BioWare's non-D&D game Dragon Age a few days ago. For now, you can keep current with the news about the game on the front page, as well as join the discussion in our Dragon Age forum.

Most of the people who voted (23%), are not really interested in the recently announced D&D RTS set in the new Eberron setting, rating their interest 1/5.

Quite a large majority of poll participants (42%) have completed all of the D&D games and expansions they own at least once.

A few less (39%), haven't completed them all yet, but are working on it.

Only 19% of those who voted haven't completed all of the D&D games and expansions they own, and also probably never will.

Q: What do you look for in fantasy multiplayer CRPGs the most?
(286 votes total)

I don't play multiplayer (90) 31%
Story (81) 28%
Co-operation (52) 18%
Quests (21) 7%
Regularly new content (13) 5%
Romance (10) 3%
Player vs. Player (PvP) (8) 3%
Fame (3) 1%

The poll results pretty much speak for themselves in this poll, so extensive comments are really not necessary. The interesting things to note are that the majority of poll participants do not play fantasy CRPGs in multiplayer at all. The rest who do, however, seem to be most interested in the game's story, player co-operation, and quests.
