However, right now, with 6060 votes in, Halo leads Quake 3187 to 2873.

Pete at Subnova asks why you haven't bought Halo for your Mac or PC. Right now the leading response is "I did get it you insensitive clod." No CowboyNeals were harmed in the making of this survey.

SketchFactor dropped onto the HBO forum to ask what people think about Kill-In-Order variations of the Slayer game type, where in order to score you have to kill players in a specific orders.

Microsoft is running a survey about the Xbox Live service-- what you like, what you don't like, what you play, etc etc. Technically it's attached to a 2-month free trial offer, but I'm sure they won't mind hearing from you if you're a subscriber already.There are plenty of places to fill in "other" under reasons why you're going to subscribe, or have already. Feel free to put in "Halo 2" someplace.
