    DEV BATTLE! - Ian Marsh vs John Kooistra
    ----------------------------------------------
    Both are very capable developers on top of their game producing top quality apps. Ian seems to be the family casual kind (Scoops, Textropolis, Hanoi Plus) and John seems to be the more hardcore shooter gamer kind (Blue Attack, Blue Defence). I think I gotta go with John here cause he suits my style more. Who does it for you? Discuss.

    I voted for Ian. I don't really like shooters. But besides that; all of Ian's games are very polished and he adds as much stuff as he can from what people request. Plus he is a very active user here on the forums.

    John is a very active user here in the forums as well. He even scrapped his in-development project because he thought it wasn't good enough. That's top quality dev thinking.

    Yeah I just edited the main post with each dev's main games.

    You need to stalk me?
    comparing games is one thing but comparing devs is another.

    they create games of different genre's and BOTH guys are extremely helpful to this community. the question of who's the better dev is ridiculous.

    Nice to see the poll reflects that they are both equally awesome developers.

    I voted for Ian.

    I was addicted to his games way back when they first came out and he is very active in the community. Nothing against John though...

    is this insulting the two devs?
    no
    does this mean that one sucks and the other doesnt?
    no

    I think it's great. Should have a match every week. Provided nobody gets to sensitive, this is a really fun thread.

    Yeah man, what's wrong with some of you guys. Most of the polls here aren't usefull as it is. Nothing wrong with letting people talk about some of their favourite devs. People love these stuff.
