Can't beat... you know.

Well, you probably just have an extremely value high instance of the integer 60, and and extremely low value instance of the integer 49. ;-)

LOL!

I feel like this is a pretty clever joke but I just don't get it.

It rounds up. Do the math. Don't forget to the carry the 2. Also, fix the graphics on level 3.

The statement is, "2 + 2 = 5 for very large values of 2." It's a joke about rounding and estimating. For instance, suppose you have your calculator set to round all numbers to integers (no decimal places) and the problem you're actually computing is 2.48 + 2.47. The calculator will automatically round, so when you punch 2.48 and ENTER, it will show up on the screen as 2. When you punch in the 2.47 and ENTER, it will also show up on the screen as 2. Then when you add, the sum 4.95 will be rounded to 5. Hence, 2 + 2 = 5 if the value of 2 is large enough.

Huh, what website with a dark background was that image taken from? Because Giant Bomb is white.

You're right, Skyrim was pretty over rated. ;)

Math jokes always fall flat, even if they are clever (unless you're surrounded by not funny people I suppose).

As long as you make yourself laugh, that's all that matters, right?

It seems most if not all of the most recent GOTG polls are falling prey to this weirdness. The results keep adding up to greater than 100%. Either there's a bug in the system, or that Jeff macro has been wrong this entire time.

Seriously, Skyrim was a snooze of this generation.

They tend to be a little obtuse. I'll just leave now.

If I may wildly guess, I wonder if somehow it's storing the total votes as a separate variable from the votes for each option, and the total votes isn't ticking up properly when too many people are voting on the poll in short span of time or something, but the votes for each option are ticking up, meaning its comparing each option to a "total votes" value that is lower than the actual total.

Though I have no idea why it would do that, when you could just find the total votes by adding all the individual votes for each option.

We should totally restart that poll. And the Batman vs Braid one. And then we'll restart them again if the results are the same... and again... and again....

I think the bigger problem is that 4chan has obviously rigged this shit for Skyrim to win.

Okay. Fine. I voted for Skyrim also. I feel like a bad person.

Nothing is impossible, if you believe.

Also, Giant Bomb is more dark grey. Picture is accurate.

How do you math?

I agree with you 115%.

Seems like normal banana republic US poll results. I see them on presidential elections all the time.

Classic Giantbomb.
