How in the world can the worse Konami MSX game beat hands up one of the best and most entertaining arcade game? Me wondering why you like so much Green Beret!
The poll is about the most underrated game, not the best game.

You're calling Green Beret the worst Konami MSX game. But in reality, Konami made several worse MSX games.
Fact is, Green Beret is a very decent port of the arcade game, with colorful graphics and good gameplay. It's better than many other MSX1 games which are generally rated higher. Yet everybody calls it one of the worst MSX games! That's only because it says "Konami" on the box, and therefor Green Beret is the epitome of 'underrated', simple.

To be honest, I somehow expect Green Beret to win this poll. It fits the definition of underrated perfectly, indeed. GuyveR800 calls it 'epitome'. Hahey, learning new words every day. Cheers Wink

Unless the majority does not like Green Beret anyway. Although I do understand what you mean I feel a bit angry when people try to indoctrinate what the outcome of this poll SHOULD be. If it's predictable, it's no fun you see.

I hope you don't think I am indoctrinating anyone. I'm just explaining the term 'underrated', and that this poll is not 'vote for the best game'. Additionally I was explaining the reasoning of people giving Green Beret high points in this poll.

Thom is right about indoctrinating not being very cool. And I guess that's what I was doing in my last post. Apologies!

No you weren't.
If you had said "I think Green Beret should win this poll", then you would have been indoctrinating (a bit).
But in stead you said "I expect Green Beret to win", just like people say "this and this political party is expected to win this election".
I wonder if Thom also becomes angry by the indoctrinating effects of election polls.

And as snout said, this whole thing is supposed to be fun! People getting genuinely angry about anything concerning these polls need some playtime-therapy, IMO.

Haha, well it depends on what you stress.
"I somehow EXPECT Green Beret to win"
sounds a lot more like indoctrinating than
"I SOMEHOW expect Green Beret to win"
That's all. Let's just assume Latok meant the latter.

Of course!! These polls are the root of all evil! Big smile

I wasn't really annoyed, I just don't want to know the outcome right now. My "angriness" was just a verisimilitude, right?

Well, do not underrate the significance of the word 'somehow'. In this context, the word 'expect' means "to consider probable or certain", 'somehow' adds a sense of indetermination to that meaning. IMO Latok's sentence cannot be misconstrued. Big smile
