Poll Results: Do You Miss Game Cartridges?

December 9, 2013 - GamePolitics Staff

In last week's poll, we asked readers if they missed video game cartridges (think Nintendo Entertainment System, SNES, Nintendo 64, Master System, and Sega Genesis era). A slim majority of those who participated in the poll said that digital downloads are their favorite way to get games and that they don't miss the days of carts all that much.

Around 291 votes were casts, with a slim majority- 40 percent, or 115 votes - going to the digital download options. Around 36 percent (105 votes) said that game companies should bring cartridges back, and 24 percent of the votes (71 votes) said optical discs are the best format to use.

Thanks to everyone who voted in last week's poll. Look for a new one later this week. For a more in-depth discussion on the topic, check out the latest episode of Super Podcast Action Committee. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get this Nintendo 64 WWF No Mercy cartridge to work. Let me try blowing on it for 20 minutes...
