    There was a thread not so long ago asking if D:OS was the best RPG that came out from Kickstarter, let's broaden the scope and include all major RPG releases from KS and see which one is the Codex's favourite.
    You can vote your preferred title in the poll. I haven't included Dragonfall because it wasn't exactly funded through KS, other than that I may have forgotten some game but I think I included all the major ones.

    I either didn't know or forgot a bunch of those were kickstarted, like Serpents in the Staglands and Dead State and Expeditions. But, I also somehow mixed up Serpents in the Staglands and the Something Hourglass and thought SitS was that game for a while so sometimes low key like items can get mixed up in my head.

    Had to vote Shadowrun Returns because it gave us Dragonfall.

    Broken Hourglass, maybe. That was abandoned a long time ago.

    I was really disappointed when that Kickstarter failed.

    They'd be crazy not to go back to that well again at some point. They do need more work on that engine though

    Pillars of Eternity is the best so far - lots of content, complex systems, Obsidian-grade writing and storytelling, great music and visuals.

    Shadowrun Hong Kong was great too but it doesn't quite have the depth of PoE. Still an amazing RPG.

    Mix up between PoE and WL2 for me.

    I guess D:OS 2 on 3rd place.

    Expedition: Conquistador was badass. My favorite Kickstarter game. Pillars at second.

    Voted Pillars of Eternity.
    Shadowrun Returns was real good also, but PoE wins in sheer scope, complexity and ambition.

    I've had decent fun with all the games I backed and/or played, but Shadowruns Dragonfall and Hong Kong, an Wasteland 2 were the most longlasting. DOS and PoE are probably better designed and polished, but they didn't manage to hold my interest as much as the others. They both had the sort of boredom factor whose cause I can't really pinpoint, but which I just couldn't overlook.

    PoE and DOS are the only good games on the list. Good as in I might play them again. Well not DOS cuz I'd be playing DOS2 instead, which is exactly the same but better. Shadowrun is probably the 3rd best.

    Fascinating to see Torment sit at 0 votes. It was at least better than WL2 which was complete garbage.

    To think that T:ToN was the Codex's most anticipated game of the year... :negative:
