    I almost finished DOS2 and quit at the end because it turned awful in every way. It ran like shit, it played like shit, the combat system sucked, the level scaled loot was trash and the writing and dialogue were cringeworthy. Garbage game, 4/10
    Elex surprised me, as I got exactly the thing that I was waiting for: a eurojank RPG with a large world and plenty of c&c. Some parts of the game (primarily the combat system) weren't as good or as fleshed out as I wanted them to be but I still got what I wanted and I was happy with it, 7 or 8/10.
    I didn't play anything else in the year.

    not saying that Nier Automata is a bad game at all (far from it) but how is it considered an RPG

    anyway Divinity 2 should win that even with horrible ARPG-like items

    Coming to Codex daily for the past three years has made me realize the truth that 80% of the rpgs I used to think were fun are actually shit.

    This year it dawned on me that:
    1) NWN's combat is shit, and good NWN modules are good DESPITE the shitty combat
    2) KOTOR and KOTOR 2's combat are shit
    3) I didn't find playing Wasteland 2 to be any fun. The game isn't even bad but it makes me never want to pick up another RPG ever again
    4) I've never ever enjoyed playing Fallout or Fallout 2 and I sure as fuck found Underrail intolerable
    5) Pillars is shit and every rtwp except BG2: EE is like Pillars. Playing BG: EE made me realize that it's shit just like Pillars.
    6) Pillars also made me realize that I like BG2: EE for D&D, not for being an rpg
    7) Elminage Gothic and Rance 6 made me realize that I've outgrown blobbers
    8) The more I compared JA2 and Dragonfall, the more I unravel. If JA2 is considered a strategy game more than an RPG, then why is Dragonfall considered an RPG and not a strategy game? Why do these two games go on different lists? Are Gold Box games rpgs or strategy games?

    RPGs are a shit genre and the number of straight turn-based CRPGs actually worth playing is around 5. I like adventure games, strategy games, and strategic rpg hybrids. I tolerate blobbers but realize that it's just playing the same fucking game from 1981 over and over. JRPGs are bad-fun since Japanese culture is an endless dirty rabbit hole, a culture that lacks originality but completely lets their id run amok. I loath ARPGs, the only ARPG that I ever felt satisfied for finnishing was Diablo 1. RTwP is shit, BG2: EE is a glitch in the matrix that will NEVER EVER come around again.

    I am wise.

    Nah, UR is good. I have some issues with it but they're neglible. Might be the closest we've come to replicate the Fallout feeling. (AoD doesn't do it for me, mainly due to five things: writing, teleportation, camera, setting, character system.)

    Don't worry, you're just on par with mainstream media. 75% = it sucks.

    My Fallout feeling is fighting ants in the Temple of Trials and punching silly Geckos. Underrail brought back that feeling 100%.

    BTW, I really don't get why so many journos love Numenera and keep talking about it... you see it being name-dropped more in RPG articles than it ever was talked about by gamers.

    'cause of all the non-whites in it. Plus there's a gay character talking about sex. So progressive. And a tranny God.
