Portrait or Landscape?

Just a quick question, please vote: would you rather have a 2D RPG that is portrait or landscape? Thanks.

edit: should say that this is for iPhone

Landscape, definitely. I can't think of any iPhone game that I'd want in portrait (except for Doodle Jump).

It all depends on the control scheme. For dual-thumb games, landscape is obviously preferred. However, with single-finger games (such as Spirit) or games that require a D-pad as the only input (such as Game Dev Story) portrait would be better.
