    Back on topic. When are we going to have a top RPG poll with negative votes?

    Codex should derive its top RPGs exclusively from negative votes.
    "Codex' least shitty RPGs of all time"!

    Satan's machinations are surreptitious and dramatic, much like Oblivion's dark horse rise to the 69th best RPG of all time.

    Why are you counting votes, I'm curious.

    People may alter their votes until the 6th so counting them before seems pointless. Everyone can change his or her mind, ruining your calculations.

    The vast majority of Diablo clones were/are inferior so that's why I ain't spending points on those. Except maybe Titan Quest but lack of quality online play hurts there.
    And even then it's a lesser form of RPG at its peak. Diablo 1 is one of my favorite games ever but as an RPG it's kinda meh at best. Online play carries it.

    Definitely. For how old it is, I still think it has some of the best art.

    The range of RPGs is larger on PC, no?

    Because the Codex is a PC RPG site. The JRPG subforum is only there for quarantine purposes.

    I rather like Diablo 2, but I'm not sure it even qualifies as an RPG. Same reason I didn't vote for Mount & Blade.

    I haven't played Dark Souls because I mostly play older stuff, so no worries there dude. Both of those were on my list.

    I don't believe 300 people will change their mind. It's easier to tab the votes slowly over time and then just edit the ones that changed their votes.

    I didn't think this place could surprise me any more than it has, but the number of votes for Sengoku Rance has done it

    I have to say that I was in doubt if those games would be considered. I dont know if I should consider Diablo a RPG, but its a game that I love. The same for FTL or Battle Brothers, for example.

    Maybe lot of people had the same doubt. Could be nice if we deliver the results and give one more week to people change the votes, after seeing the numbers. People can realize "wtf, Can I vote for this game????" And change the votes to a better final result.

    Do or do not. There is no try.

    Just to make sure I understand, are the below games appropriate because they are on pc?

    FF7
    FF9
    FF10
    FF6
    Chrono Trigger
    Valkyria Chronicles
    Stranger of Sword City
    Elminage gothic
    Elminage Original
    Octopath Traveler (june 2019)
    Ys 8
    DQ11

    If not, then it makes sense that trash like Dungeon Siege 1 made the list last time, and I’d expect to see similarity trash titles voted for instead of some of the ones listed above.

    Dungeon Siege made the list because people were playing Ultima 5 and 6 on it at the time and were getting a much better impression of it than the original release warranted.
