    42 vote(s)
    18.5%
  2. Good - an above average experience with few flaws, though there are some

    103 vote(s)
    45.4%
  3. Even - it's a middling game that doesn't excell at anything, but isn't bad at anything either

    11 vote(s)
    4.8%
  4. Uneven - It's an uneven game that does certain things very well, others terribly

    45 vote(s)
    19.8%
  5. Bad - it may have a few good ideas, but mostly it's not that good

    12 vote(s)
    5.3%

    6.2%

    Are you a moron or something? How is it that you are not capable of understanding that the qualifiers OP put behind the ratings are misleading themselves? Are you aware of the fact that those terms have had a specific universal definition even before this poll was created? If so, do you not know the distinction between the terms excellent and good? The game is excellent. It excels in various qualities over almost all its competitors. So if you do not care as much about its supposed flaws as much or even welcome some of its design aspects which are critisized by some (for example the armor and magic shield system), then it still is a fucking excellent game.

    Has my point now become clear to you? Or would i have to draw you a picture? If so, then i must dissapoint you as i have little time for this shit. I have to play a game.

    Yup, your point is clear. You're fucking retarded. What's relevant are the qualifiers for the various rankings, regardless of what you personally weigh into the meaning of "Excellent" or "Good".

    The poll answers should follow a Gaussian curve but they don't because the options "Even" and "Uneven" are retarded. They should be merged in something equivalent to "Mediocre" because that's what they are replacing.

    Anyway, that would not change much because 48% voted for Good which ... hmmm. ...

    People keep whining about this. Is it difficult for you to understand, or something?

    There should just be two options; "Like" and "Dislike".

    I think we can safely discount everyone that voted for the top and the bottom options as functionally retarded. Anyone want to take a stab at recalculating the results based on that?

    The dictionary definition is irrelevant, you subhuman autist. The definitions for the purpose of the poll are right there. But since you're clearly autistic, I guess you simply need to have "described as" or "as defined as" inserted between the ranking and the qualifier.

    You didn't give me an option between "good" and "excellent" so I voted excellent even though it's hardly a perfect 10/10...

    I played it a bit today and the writing, the writing. It's terrible. Also looks like every road goes to jail. And characters should be powerful and unique, but everyone and its dog uses more skills than characters...

    Actually, while there's several ways for you to progress in a way that takes you through the jail, there's also at least three-four other routes that doesn't necessitate going through the jail at all. It's actually entirely possible to miss the jail if you're the kind of person to just sorta coast through the game instead of exploring everything.

    - escape the prison without a fight

    - feel smart about how you've just taken a smart route out

    - get stomped into the ground by enemies that laugh at your pathetic level 3 :troll:
