    KOTOR 2 should be #1. It really is the best game of all time.

    Most exactly is a good list to measure the level of butthurt in different fanboyism schools*.

    So the result could be:

    1. Old fags contrary to every post-2000 game (TW3, MW, BG2, F:NV, etc)

    2. Old combat-fags (RTwP is an aberration, real time is creepy, and Dark Souls is the popamole apocalypse!)

    3. Old potato fans (MW ate my gothic!)

    4. Anti-europoor's games muricans (TW3, D:OS 1&2, ELEX have not enough burgers)

    5. Anti-Sawyer Brotherhood (Where is my FUN?)

    6. Story-fags (What is an rpg? A good story!)

    7. Anti VD mob (VD is wrong and his cheap whores fans are annoying)

    *Please note that many voters are militants in more than one fanboyism branch

    System Shock 2 is not an RPG.
    Disqualify anyone putting System Shock 2 on their list, they are WRONG and they must be punished for it.

    You are wasting your time, this is not a forum for gamers who like rpgs , its apparently mostly for narrow minded people boasting their ego on the internet and spending more time on general discussion than gaming. Not everyone! There's still good people in, true gamers ,but they are dieing out and they aren't replaced by a new generation . They wont listen to you and even if they do they wont take it into consideration , its the only power they have in their sad life, to deny those titles from the list.... The platform you play the game on is irrelevant when you are true gamer only quality matter.
    RPCODEX best rpg list doesn't means shit, its trash and its intended to be like, it always been .

    Fucking point buy system made for people who played only few games in their fucking lives. Thanks to this idiotic system I had to remove many great games from my vote list and distribution of points is fucked because I wasn't able to decide until very end distribution of points and said "fuck it!" and posted comment with points made while I almost fallen a sleep.

    Who said anything about graphics? Is obvious that a stick figure game will not have a masterpiece story, and thats why I mentioned it.

    It's also wrong. For all its slapstick absurdity, WoL is very well written and has a better constructed narrative than most storyfag offerings.

    Ok, I already counted all the votes so far, so here's three questions for debate:

    - Should votes for all games in the Trails in the Sky and Geneforge series be combined? I mean, does someone really starts playing Trails in the Sky from the second game?

    - We got 9 new accounts from after the poll started. Should we allow them?

    - How long the list should be? Between 70 at 100 there's a lot of ties, so there's no round number to pick. And if we go all the way to 100 we get some games that only 3 or 4 people voted for. Here's the votes & points:

    No, it gives them an unfair advantage IMO.

    No.

    Top 80. From 71-80 the majority still have a double-digit of votes.

    I don't get why it shouldn't be Top 100! Even those games that only a few people voted for still seem to be worth mentioning for them, so I would definitely be interested in having those visible.
    (And if the points stay the way they are, make it Top 105. No harm in that.)

    I would exclude not only accounts made after the poll started, but also accounts with very few posts.

    Top 80 should be the cutoff.

    No.

    Sure. Every vote counts.

    Why not a top 50? If there are ties, put them at the same rank.[/quote]
