If you don't like it, don't vote. I don't see why people feel so compelled to partake in things that provoke them.
But hey, fine, I won't bother you with it again.

You know, you guys are assholes, and it just cost you another free game.

Don't let Treellamas opinion speak for all of us. You know, he's quite the perfectionist.
Not all of us have the same standards as he do.

While your "research/poll" could have been set up in a better way, it's not terrible, or anything.
I think most of us would actualy like to play a marathon rpg (stand alone game) if there was one. I know I would.

I don't have any choice but to see IPB's broken polls in View New Posts, EVERY TIME SOMEBODY VOTES, thank you very much.

I made a helpful suggestion and that makes me an asshole?

No, this is being an asshole: it only cost us another piece of your vaporware.

yet another person that thinks naysayers are assholes

I don't know why this community in particular seems to demand such sugar-coating in their criticism.

Are you going to let other people prevent you from making this? If your answer is yes, then it probably should not be made anyway.

An RPG-ish game set in the Marathon world is not that bad an idea.

The universe/story does allow for one.
Example: you are a Bob, stranded on a planet (maybe on Lh'owon in the weeks between Durandal's fall and Thoth's activation), you gain equipment and skill as you get to the surface to activate Thoth sites and recieve Pfhor intel, fighting F'lickta and the Pfhor. Perhaps Tycho could be causing trouble among the Pfhor ranks behind T'fear's back (Infinity style).
There's plenty of possibilities out there.

In my opinion, it would be pretty nice as long as it doesn't become like one of those JRPGs.
Personally, I would prefer progressive leveling.


(You could also go all-out and make a Marathon-themed RTS codenamed "Monkey Nuts".)

JRPG refers to a style of RPG made almost exclusively in Japan, as opposed to WRPGs (Western), which are dramatically different.

Knights of the Old Republic is a WRPG; Final Fantasy are JRPGs.

When Ryoko shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory.

And before him shall be gathered all RPGs; and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats.

And he shall set the WRPGs on his right hand, but the JRPGs on the left.
