    I have here in my hand a list of 134 — a list of names that were made known to the RPG Codex as being members of the Communist Party and who nevertheless are still working and shaping policy in the RPG Community.

    First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out - because I was too busy cheering and dancing with joy.

    So Prime Junta was begging half the Codex in DMs to stop trashing Disco Elysium on the forums?

    This game has none of the things I like it look forward to in RPGs. Usually I get down with storyfaggotry but not if you remove core RPG elements like dungeons, combat, weapons.

    • Can't create your own party
    • No positional combat
    • Combat skills are boring
    • Dungeons are lacking
    • No selling loot to buy better weapons
    I just don't see the RPGs in this. Corruption of Champions, a hentai game, has more choices and consequences than this - and they didn't cut out any combat!

    An RPG without combat is like sex without a penis. Theoretically possible but only for weirdos and with no real purpose.

    The truth is far greater. The world as you know doesn't exist. It's all a sham. The majority of the population are Illuminati secret communists. And we would have remained secret, too, if it weren't for Jenkem and his meddling crew!

    Like being actual mechanics behind it besides:

    - Roll succeeded > go to path A
    - Roll failed > go to path B

    Like actually changing the gameplay in any way.
    "Character development" in this game is clicking on + buttons randomly which may or may not result in you passing some skills checks, the difference between the two being different lines of text.

    Also, fuck off with your "define". It's the same bullshit every retard does when they insist on calling everything an RPG. "HURRR PLZ DEFINE RPG IF U CANT GIVE A DEFINTIONE THAT I AGREE WITH IT MEANS EVERYTING I SAY IS AN RPG IS AND RPG LOOOOOOOOL".

    You never played ANY PnP RPG.

    And just so you know DE does not play like a PnP RPG. You don't get a list of actions to choose from in a PnP RPG.

    Are you talking about actual character development, like in stats and skills? Because that can only be applied to the playable characters.
    I don't give a shit about Harry's journey from "whatever" to "who cares".

    So, in your opinion, the character development can only be mechanical?

    *Harthwain shurgs*

    Human perception can differ from person to person, which is why there is discord concerning what is an RPG and what's not. I didn't expect you to come up with a satisfactory answer, which in itself is satisfactory, because expected as much.

    Yeah, it isn't PnP RPG. It's a cRPG heavily inspired (if not straight up copy-pasted) by the PnP RPG setting made by the developers. It can't give you the same freedom as actual PnP RPG, but that's exactly why it has "c" before "RPG". Because some limitations are bound to be there, due to the nature of the game.

    I'm pretty sure Roguey's list is just the results from the GOTY 2019 poll.

    Full disclosure: I voted for DE because literally every other game I played this year was shit, especially The Outer Worlds.

    Honestly nobody has time exploring case of retardation that is Roguey, I just :updatedmytxt:

    However I can bet money that Roguey actually have not played Disco Elysium and is just shit posting as usual, I actually have IT marked as someone who comments about games without actually playing them

    Full disclosure : I only voted DE because thats the only game from that shit list of 2019 GOTY that I played and I only played it because you Cucks were raving how amazing of an RPG it is and apparently its not one, I still think its a good game tho just not RPG like at all.

    I dislike every piece of writing I've seen from it in screenshots so of course I have no interest in buying/playing it. What a waste of time that would be.

    I actually do consider it a role playing game, just not a very good one (i.e. when text is all there is, reactivity/C&C is very important, but as I understand it, it's Bioware-style flavor text as everyone goes through the same plot beats to reach the same ending with a few non-standard game overs)

    So why spend your precious time commenting about it in codex thread ? I am sure actually playing it would be less of time waste than what you are doing now
