Checking the Number of Polygons in Blender

It's written at the top of the screen, always. In the 'title bar' section.

What you call the "title bar" is in fact the header bar of the Info panel. Hiding the Info's header bar (in its context menu) or closing the Info panel itself let the header disappear, and hence the desired information will not be displayed. It is true that the Info's header bar is shown by default, but it is not true that it is always there. (And since the OP asked for a thing visible by default, I was under the impression that the header actually was hidden.)

Keep in mind that the number listed in the info bar (at least in the version of Blender I have) is the face count, which can be either quads or tris, whereas most game engines define their polycounts by way of triangles. If you work in mostly quads like I do, you can double this number and get close to your actual (game art) polycount, since quads are made up of two triangles. The way to get the tri count for certain is in object mode, select your object. Then apply a decimate modifier. The number next to "Face Count" is your tri count. Then delete your modifier before continuing -- using it is not actually as useful as it might seem, I just using it for getting the triangle count.

Thanks,
Scott
