Indeed. Something Like:

Don't you worry about those poll options. It's settled, and you'll eventually get to see the results.

Back to the poll...

Because they can still be classified.

Uplink is a sim, just a very bad one in terms of reflecting reality.
Darwinia could be argued to be an RTS that focusses largely on territory control, which considering almost all others are "GATHER SHIT, BUILD SHIT, RUIN SHIT, REPEAT" is fairly unique.
Defcon is an RTS which focusses on nothing but damage and damage control; you can have your naval units completely blown out of the water, your buildings could be but a distant memory, but as long as the other guy isn't getting as many kills as you, you're winning.
Multiwinia might as well be likened to Darwinia, there's no reason not to.

Strategy for the win...... :roll: I just seem to get so much more out of them, like they involve the character more than a shooter where you just mindlessly blow people away...... :cry: Besides you generally can't use nuclear weapons in shooters :twisted:

You're seriously making me consider letting polls get locked after some time (although I doubt anyone would agree with me on that). Look at the time the last reply was posted before you bumped it. That's more than a year ago! There's nothing wrong with voting for polls after such a long time (not that anyone still looks at the results, but ok) but replying - i.e. bumping - is not an option.
