    I think it was worth to vote for DOS 2 only for beautiful view on butthurt from degenerates who keep repeating words "retarded, shit, faggots, gay, SJW" and death threats to all people who disagree with their very personal opinion. Keep going guys, I am still have popcorn. Oh and btw your cry can't change anything - poll closed, just saying. Haha, people really think that their personal opinion should become standard for everyone, lol.






    P.S Can anyone say to me what kind combat and writing is not shit? Oh, wait, you cannot. Because in the end it all end up in another flame, since there doesn't exist "ideal combat/story/mechanics" which would benefit to everyone.

    I think people can come up with any number of alternative voting schemes, but looking at these exceedingly clear results I'm quite certain that D:OS 2 would still win.
    Unless it's "only I and people who think like me are allowed to vote" of course.

    Sounds like typical Persona 3+ garbage. First encounter: figure out the weaknesses. All subsequent encounters of the same composition: play back the exact same script every time.
    I will never understand how some people praise those for their combat mechanics. That honestly makes JRPGs look bad.

    All the SMT games I've played have good combat built around principles similar to Persona, so I have to assume it's intentionally brainless, so that the waifu lovers can get to the next cutscene with minimal friction.

    I'm pretty sure ELEX, Grimoire, Nier and TTON all suffered from unjustified downvotes. Compare it to the "pick just one GOTY" system:
    http://www.rpgcodex.net/forums/index.php?threads/rpg-of-the-year.119561/

    1. DOS2
    2. ELEX
    3. Grimoire
    4. Expeditions: Viking
    5. Nier: Automata
    6. TTON
    7. West of Loathing
    8. Spellforce 3
    9. Mass Effect
    10. Cat Quest

    That's what Codex results should look like, not a Top 10 full of games nobody ever heard of.

    Ok Lady Error I thought you had a point but if Mass Effect Andromeda is going to be in our top 10 I’m glad the results were calculated differently. Holy shit. That is some horrific shit right there. Who the fuck rated that game positively? Not even AngryJoe, and he’s gone full retard in recent years.

    What if I told you that ANY game in documents have trade mark, since almost ALL games belong to one or another company( so all them have tm near title) ? Oh, wait, I shal not ruin your magical land of "ideal games" (and without copyright) with my logic and reason.

    No :lol:

    Maybe it was just troll votes for Mass Effect and Cat Quest (only 4 each) - with a bigger official vote they'd probably not end up in the Top 10.

    Also Mask of the Betrayer for writing, and Betrayal at Krondor.
    And for combat, also Knights of the Chalice.

    That about covers it...

    That list just shows you what a terrible year we had, none of these games deserve anything, I had more fun replaying Gothic 1-2 and Ultima series. And all this talk about DOS 2, that pile of dung will be forgotten by next year and trust me, no sane player would put that shit anywhere near a top RPG list, there's nothing memorable about it, no great encounters, no memorable characters, nothing, just like PoE, they got great scores because of the great RPG/TBS drought, simple as that.

    So the Codex voted for a Bethesda Non-RPG - hmmmm - got I automatically redirected to a Pseudo-Codex ?

    I can tell you Prey is NOT in the RPGWatch top 3...

    RPG Codex might be a wretched hive of lovable scum and villainy, but we sure have fine game taste. Glad to see Prey and Elex fare well.

    I liked Pillars a lot more than anything in the Divinity series. A story that engaged you right from the start, no lulz, a consistent and interesting game world. I will admit the turn based combat of DOS 1 and 2 were better than the BG-inspired clusterfuck of PoE, though. I’d like to see what Sawyer could do with a turn based system.

    Was Mass Effect: Andromeda? I’m genuinely interested actually.

    I take your point that having Prey on the list is a stain on the Codex’s prestigious reputation but the Watch has done far worse in years gone by.

    Battle Bros cracking the top 3 is a pleasant surprise. Those guys made a really good game especially considering it's a first release from a tiny studio.
