I also went books and films. While I really, really love the LotR series both in book and movie form, I've read the books twice and seen the films more times than I care to admit :oops2:
There are plenty of films I'll regret never having seen, but considering how much I rely on the other two options it's a pretty easy decision.
Videogames are an obvious keep, as not only have they had a profound impact on my life but I've always wanted to be a videogame programmer/designer myself. As for music, I listen to music almost constantly. I wouldn't be surprised if over 50% of my waking hours for the past couple of years have been spent listening to music, I listen throughout the entirety of the school day, the majority of my free time at home and I often fall asleep listening to music.

I too went with books and films. I'm not much of a book reader, and I don't watch enough films to keep them. I play video games almost every day since I've been a little kid and I can't see myself in a world without music. It wouldn't be the same.

I am sensing a trend here.....but I too went with books and films, though if I was only choosing one, it would be films. There are still some books that I like reading. I have nothing else to say on this.

I'd pick books and then I guess movies :?: I can't really think of any concrete reason for why I prefer games to fillems, only that I play them more often. Music is definitely at the top though.

You know I actually have been thinking of this suggestion lately, but I know there's too many to count. But I wonder, how about specific consoles/handhelds from a specific video game company (I.e. Which Nintendo console/handheld is your favorite?)

Of course that's only a suggestion, and I'm not sure if that would work anyway but it's still a shot in the dark considering the poll ends tomorrow and to me I feel like this poll went almost exactly the way I was thinking it would.

Does a new poll need to be suggested?

If so, here's mine: Do you still watch cartoons you watched when you were a child?

I'll do that one because it's nice and easy and I don't have much energy at the moment. But I might get back to that console one, in some form or another. Keep ruminating on it!

Ill go with occasionally since I don't get to watch them as often due to not having the TV channels. I do still watch some of them but those are still on the air and aren't really classed as kids cartoons so they defeat the purpose.

I went with occasionally for nostalgia, since I hardly have time to watch these days, but when I do, it's usually a binge watch, although these are pretty uncommon for me to do these days.

I never commented on the last poll so I'll start with that:

I picked books and songs, this is more of a personal preference since I have a huge love to film as an art form, and video games I've known since a very young age and wouldn't want them to go away.

As for the current poll, I picked occasionally since as a dumb child not everything I used to watch was considered good or is still something I like to watch.

Turns out I hadn't voted, silly me :oops2:

Anyway I decided to go with occasionally as I just thought about it as I was voting. I don't really get to see them as much anymore but that doesn't mean I don't still like them :P

Except for The Simpsons, I haven't watched them anymore. I have transitioned to watching live action shows over the past 4-5 years.

Huh, so many threads have been created/bumped lately that this thread just fell into the depths. Bump.

I think that console one would be good, but maybe to make it easier, say which generation of consoles was your favourite?

Where PS1/Saturn/N64 is one then Dreamcast/PS2/Gamecube/xbox etc.

1-8 in generations as follows and you just pick between 1-8 :)

That's a good idea too. I think if the idea was used that link should also be up on the poll, since I didn't know handhelds could be consoles (or so wikipedia indicates..)
