    Comrades, welcome to the RPG Codex 2019 GOTY Award!

    This year we had 949 voters, who rated 62 releases from 2019. This is almost half of the 114 RPGs of 2018, as it was definitely a slower year. Hope you managed to clean your backlog, because 2020 looks overwhelming.

    Once again we had three categories: Game of the Year, Best Expansion/DLC and Best PC Port/Remaster.

    For those of you who just want the TL;DR, here are the winners:

    Game of the Year
    1st - Disco Elysium
    2nd - Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
    3rd - Slay the Spire

    Best Remake/Port
    Romancing SaGa 3

    Best DLC/Expansion
    Underrail: Expedition

    For the full results and fancy graphs, just follow the link below.

    Remember, in 2015 the Codex choose Underrail.

    This is the revenge.

    The revenge of the Storybros.

    Exactly, now we choose a game that is as bad as Underrail was good.

    50% for the Outer Worlds to trully mark down its mediocrity.

    On a slightly more serious note: I am playing Titan Outpost right now, and I am having fun. I couldn't vote for it, but I'm happy there were those that did. Well done, bros. Good title.

    Hi.

    Thank-you for the time it took you to put this together but I also wanted to take a moment to talk to you as a fan and long-time member of this website okay? Okay.

    Long ago when I joined you needed an account to participate in the Game of the Year Awards and despite being new at the time, I was allowed to vote and give my feedback on the games I had played. After it was done, I could look at everyone else and see what they too, voted on.

    The last two Game of the Year Awards has put the voting off site and also not been locked into an account. Granted I was still allowed to vote when I first joined and at least it was tied to my RPG Codex account, I hope future Game of the Year Awards are presented not only via registered accounts, but also accounts that have been around for some time.

    I have no ill will toward the game which won, or how others did against it. I honestly feel that by only allowing registered Codex accounts of a year or more of registration to participate, does it offer a more refined focus on the type of games our community enjoys playing.

    EDIT: Gosh! At least Obsidian continue to knock them out year after year in the top standings. That's my boys!

    Thanks,
    Sherry

    I wonder if we'll see a flood of Disco-likes in the next few years.

    Yep, expect a bunch of hipster """RPGs""" without gameplay, just like DOS/POE launched a wave of lookalike vaporware

    IIRC a lot of Codexers enjoyed Igavanias so this is no surprise to me, considering how little CRPGs came out this year.

    2020 seems to be a year of glut full potentials. Let's hope we get something.

    Depends on the devs. If they keep pushing communist visual novels then yes, there will be more butthurt. It's the combination of not being an RPG (and trying to appropriate the genre) plus the political claptrap that makes DE such a perfect storm of anti-RPG wrongness.

    We already know Sawyer is completely infatuated with DE and is working on his DE-clone, and there will surely be many more to come; people don't understand just how legitimately dangerous shit like DE is to our hobby. I can very well see a grim future where people think combat and gameplay in RPGs is "optional", and that any story that doesn't have 'political undercurrents' is not sophisticated.
