    Underrail was crowd-funded? I thought it was one of the examples that wasn't

    I was just bewildered that Oblivion, despite having seemingly no fans on the Codex, made it onto the list while Skyrim (a much better game IMO) didn't.

    On a more serious note I'm glad to see Age of Decadence rocket up the ranks to a rightful place on the list.

    Technically it was early accessed before Early Access was a thing like Mount and Blade before it. I got it from some bundle site years before it came out.

    Might and Magic X? I thought the Codex hated that game. Is it actually worth checking out?

    One of the best blobbers of the last 20 years, in my opinion. Not that we had that much to choose from, aside from the weeboo anime JRPG's.

    The most average cRPG of all time: 17
    Walking simulator in the woods and on the meadow: 19
    The best cRPG ever: 45
    Tyranny 95? Good joke. Top 10 is the minimum.
    Original Sin better than Original Sin II?
    Such lists should be alphabetical. Otherwise, they do not make sense.

    I didn't vote for it(and it isn't anyway near my favorite rogue-like), but I still consider the fact that Nethack didn't make into this list a travesty.

    Nice to see Elminage getting some love. Also, wow Pathfinder has a high rating, is it really that good?

    Looks like blobbers slowly go out of fashion even on the Codex. Dark days ahead.

    Codex never had a big focus on blobbers, just some very active fans like aweigh and support from Codex authority in the form of Crooked Bee

    Pretty poor list, just shows how low Codex has fallen with the influx of new users.

    I'd honestly be surprised if the majority of people who voted for Kingmaker even made it to Armag's tomb.
    It's a decent game, but I expect it to fall down to the 50s or 60s the next time rankings come up.

    Maybe I am remembering it wrong but I feel like discussion about classic blobbers used to be more active in general. Thats how I got into Wizardry and Might & Magic as some of my first classic RPGs. The feeling is reflected in this poll where most of the blobbers seemed to take a hit and are trending downward.

    Genre is essentially dead so it's unsurprising the popularity is declining.
