After a long and horrible wait, Contest #7 has finally arrived! Hooray! And this time, you don't have to know a thing about video games, all you have to do is give us your opinion. That, and the opinion of everyone else that enters the contest.

The rules are simple: You'll be asked a series of multiple-choice opinion and demographic questions on the next page. Tell us your personal opinion or give your personal information for each one, and then try and guess the three most popular answers that everyone else will give.

Okay, so maybe it's not that simple.

For each question, points will be awarded based on how close your three guesses were to the top three actual entries. 5 points will be awarded for an exact match, 4 for only one place off, 3 for two places off, 2 for three, 1 for four, and zero for five or more. These points will then in turn be multiplied for which place your guess was for: 3X for first place, 2X for second place, 1X for third place.

In the most popular GameFAQs contest so far (4362 valid entries), competition was tight. Out of a possible 450 points, the highest score was 419 by Chris Amis, while three entrants scored 416 and had their placements determined by the tiebreaker question. The average score of all entries was 340.
