Age: 23
Gender: Male
Location: Hell... errr... the Armpit of the US... errr.. I mean New Jersey.
Religious or Not: Morally opposed to the asking of this question in this particular sub-forum, and topic. This seems to be a gaming survey. Religion shouldn't be an issue. In fact, I find this offensive.
Preferred Gaming Platform: Depends on the type of game, PC I suppose.
Preferred Games Genre(s): Strategy, RPG (Final Fantasy/Chrono Trigger style, not crappy Oblivion style).
Least favorite genre(s): Shooter I suppose... though I still play them quite often... I guess. Maybe Puzzle... I nearly never play Puzzle games.
Currently playing: Not much in particular. A little bit of Uncharted... I want to replay Disgaea 2... basically whatever I feel like.
Favorite game(s): Command and Conquer Series... to much to list I guess.. Solitaire, I suppose. I wind up playing a lot of solitaire... my record is 12000-something in 69 seconds.
Least favorite game(s): Halo. Halo 2. Halo 3. Anything with Halo in it. It's not so much the game (which is average) but some of the idiots who turned me off to it.
Hours of gaming a day or week: Varies lately.

I propose a new line.
Either "Systems owned:" or "First Gaming System:". In fact I'll use both now, and I'll go historic on you're arses

Systems owned (in chronological order): Atari 2600, NES (no longer own), Genesis, SNES, Sega CD, PC, NINTENDOOOOOOOOOO 64, Dreamcast, Playstation 2, XBox, Gamecube, Wii, Playstation 3, XBox 360

First Gaming System: Atari 2600, unless you count the short lived educational gaming "computer" Socrates as a gaming system.

No need to take offense my friend.  Skipping the question is fine but let me explain why I put it in and how it ties into Spore.   This is a survey of the Spore community makeup.  One of the questions that has come up in regards to Spore is religion.  You would have to be living in gave to have missed any of the debates on the topic of religion and atheism in Spore.  Again, it was not meant to offend at all and I do respect your choice not to answer.

On a side note, I need to apologize to the agnostics.  I was totally absent minded and left y'all out.  I am going to redo that and add a little explanation for the question since at least one person found it offensive.

It was offensive because gaming has little to do with religion, unless you are an extremist as well as a lazy person/parent and think of games as "The Devil's Work". Religion and religious makeup shouldn't be relevant. It's a bit offensive that the question is even asked. I was also in a pissy mood earlier as I had just woken up with not nearly enough sleep.

Spore covers religion, yes. But it's a fictional religion. It can be whatever you want it to be. Heck, if a player wanted they could play a Military Civ and just pretend it's a religious Civ (which would work if you pretend it's some variation of one of the three oldest religions). I may play a religious race just because... not because I particularly care one way or the other about religions in general. The question doesn't fit the rest of the content. It's out of place and smacks of self-interest. That's what's offending really. It's not so much the content, but that it's out of place with the rest of it. The rest of the questions could be considered "Demographic Questions" (all that's missing is Race and Income)... that one question is out of place and doesn't fit.
