The problem now, haydence, is that it's easier for the anti-EMI crowd (I dislike EMI but I don't consider myself anti-it, I mean if people love it good for them) to say "but these are all pity votes, EMI doesn't even have a single real vote", even though it's possible that only one of the three was a pity vote.
On a slightly related subject, I think polls that work this way are... biased, let's say. That is, we can tell which episode is preferred by the most people, but that's it. Imagine EMI was the second preferred game for everyone (I know it's not the case, bear with me) it would get 0 votes. Zero. When everyone thinks it's good enough to be in second place it gets last place. That system is seriously flawed.
I guess you'd need to be able to rate all the games in order for it to really be representative. And no need to lie out of pity this way (which is mean to your real favourite anyways).
