Have You Played... is a Poll of the Day question CJay (or now SB) often asks regarding some of the site's most popular games. By tracking these results it's possible to create a listing of GameFAQs' All-Time Playrates, that is, what percentage of the site has played these games at least once, in whatever format.

Keep in mind that this listing does not include results from Do You Own...? game polls unless the poll choices made a distinction between owning and playing, as that's an entirely different question.
