OTX surveys' waiting game?

Does anyone else think this "game" is really hard? In case you don't know what I'm talking about, OTX surveys (a survey/research company that you do surveys through - and get paid) sometimes offers a game that you can play to pass the time while you wait for your survey to load (usually it's only when there's a large video, clip, or simulation loading), and it's REALLY hard! I lose every time I try to play, so I've just given up, finally. Has anyone else played this game? Does anyone else think it's ridiculously hard, too? Why can't OTX have a fun, easy game that we can play while waiting for the survey to load? Like Ms. Pacman?

All I know is that I hardly ever qualify for a survey through OTX. It's weird.

That happens, too. *sigh*. Do you usually have luck with "Opinion Surveys" (like Greenfield, and GiveUsUr2Cents - or whatever it's called)? Sometimes they're easier to qualify for.

Greenfield is good but I haven't tried the others.

I think I have played that game before once or twice...isn't it like Asteroids? I could be remembering it wrong, but I've never been a great Asteroids player even though I've played many different versions of it. At least that game taught me that if you're in a starship shooting an asteroid is a pretty bad idea.

I agree OTX surveys can be tedious at times but patience is the key to do them and if you're persistent enough you will qualify for a survey eventually. I was just yesterday and I was shocked I was able to do an OTX survey on my first shot. I was amazed because that never happens. I like the Greenfield surveys better though.

Oh, I definitely agree. I usually end up (successfully) doing OTX surveys once a day - or once every other day. The only thing I'm impatient about is when long movies/clips have to load - it literally takes FOREVER. Thanks for responding1
