    D:OS2 is an European turn- and party-based RPG with Ultima VII influences and Chris Avellone on the writing team. ELEX never had a chance.

    Also, the S and the 2 form a heart. S2

    Thank god nobody fell for that pile of shit Elex, one of the worst fucking games I played in the last few years. PB is dead and the crazed cum guzzling fan boys that keep this bloated corpse alive are the most delirious sons of bitches I have ever seen since H.Clinton thought she was adored by the people.

    BTW, people like this are why ELEX lost:
    Remove the 1/4 votes and it would be #3.

    So people who have never played an RPG before? Okay.
    Well, at least for those people, there's D:OS 2 and all its fanfiction romance, gay and straight! Progressive!

    It's not an RPG if you can't fuck everyone, like in Fallout.

    No real surprises, although I guess I expected ME:A to do a bit worse (11% positive ratings??)

    Thanks for putting it together.

    Oh sure, let's remove a few electoral college votes and H.Clinton would be president, that's not how it works. Game was garbage and people only voted for it because there was nothing else to play.

    How about the same for Nier?

    It is natural that turn based games would win over ELEX.

    This is true for every game in the poll except West Of Loathing.

    The discrepancy between D:OS 2's result in the poll and the commentary about it on the forums must be among the widest we've ever seen on this site.

    And the thing is it's not something that's consistent across all games - Torment got a terrible result. So you can't blame it on casual votes from Twitter or whatever. There are a lot of D:OS 2 fans around here whose voices aren't being heard.

    Prey 2nd best RPG? wat?

    Also, ELEX way too low. Below Expedition Viking? Really?

    ELEX is TOP 3 of 2017 at least.

    I can actually somewhat understand considering Prey an RPG. But what on earth makes Dominions 5 one? Afaik the game doesn't even claim to be an RPG, which is like the absolute bare minimum for something to be considered an RPG.
    Quite frankly I expected there to be more homosexuals on the Codex than 12%, so that's definitely a surprise.

    Prey is definitely the dark horse of this poll. It's certainly appropriate that the Codex's favorite Bethesda-published game is the one that bombed commercially.

    Before we published it, felipepepe and I spoke about how the fact that this poll is a contest between a bunch of flawed games only makes it more interesting. It shows what people on the Codex really value when they don't have an obvious favorite. As it turns out, most seek solace in the hands of safe and familiar turn-based goodness, but some chose to go in wildly different directions.
