    This basically says enough about many Underrail fans on Codex (I'm not saying all of them though). A bunch of manchildren who want their favourite toy to be considered the best by everyone or else they will scream and cry.

    I mean, seriously, this is fucking dumb. I can't imagine a single person that greatly enjoys one of these games and hates the other - they share too much, albeit play quite differently. I voted 4/5 for AoD (my highest vote btw) because it's a damn good game (but I couldn't give it 5/5, because I feel like it could do much better and I still enjoyed ie. DOS much more albeit its flaws), and I voted 3/5 for Underrail. Underrail fails for me as a fun game, but its combat is kind of similar to AoD, so if you enjoy combat in one game you will in the other, just like multiplicity of many skills is an integral part of both games. Underrail fails to keep me interested due to average dialogues and boring story, but for fuck's sake, it's not really very different, hence I can't see why would anyone have more than 2 points of difference between these games. It's just a bunch of faggots voting 5/5 for UR because ITS BEST and 1/5 for AoD because IT WILL WIN WITH UR SO I WILL SCREEEEEAM!!!

    I don't know if in the end it had any meaningful input, but everyone who voted such should be Watchwitzed immediately. No exceptions. No mercy. No time limit. Just eternal Watchwitz.

    EDIT:

    Also, you should name them, felipepepe.

    A grand total of 9 people who rated UR 5 also rated AoD 1. Out of about 200 people who voted UR 5/5. Percentages can be deceiving when you don't provide the total they're based on. I too find it hard to believe that someone who really liked either of these games would hate the other one that much, though.

    They're already named here.

    "and also that new colony ship game coming out next thursday will also suck"

    TBH this is far more useless than the last GOTY poll since 50% of the votes were trolling. Can we go back to the old format next year? I understand it's just for good fun, but still.

    If we had used this format, Dork Souls would be a 0/5 last year because everyone rated it 1 without playing it because "lul weeb shit."

    Codexers should be allowed to vote only in one game in each category.

    You just described the entirety of the Codex, not just UR fans.

    To the surprise of no one it's UR and AoD as the RPG Codex darlings that win top two GOTY spots. Somehow TW3 sneaks in 3rd even though this place seems to have a big love-hate relationship with it.

    Is the scale on the y-axis off? It seems as though the average rating of all the games is below 3, regardless if it refers to cumulative average or the group average(s) and that does not correspond to the results. What is the granularity (size of the group) on the x-axis? A month? A 1/4 of the year?

    I actually really didn't like AoD that much. I was pretty public with that before there was any potential for a GotY match up.

    I would go with option to vote for a 1st (5 points), 2nd (3 points) and 3rd (1 point). Highest point total wins. Still open to abuse and skews towards games that are played the most. But you don't have the issue of people cancelling out their own vote by rating two games with the same score. Plus people would actually be voting for GOTY rather that rating games in a poll.

    Edit - for the record, Underrail winning is fine with me

    Wasn't that how it was voted in the past? You had an amount of points and you had to distribute as you see fit among games.

    Now dude i dont want to derail your brofist harvesting rolll, but i' drather see that tag linked with stats of people posting the most on bethesda subforum instead. Linking those stats and what they really vote should be funny too.

    It's hilarious that a person who hasn't even played AoD besides the demo is one of the most vocal AoD haters. You're talking shit about Age of Decadence in every thread it's mentioned, even going as far as trying to discredit those who know this game like a back of their hand in the Steam reviews section :D. At least you had the decency to not rate it in the plebiscite. Play the game and then present arguments and criticize it. Then again FeelTheRads supposedly played it and he still can't even back his words up and present arguments why he thinks this game is shit (according to him) besides "it haz TELEPORTATION!!!!!!".

    And as I've said before, if "all AoD and UR 1s were changed to 2s" AoD would have won (so yeah, 10 UR fanboys voting 1 for AoD and 5 and 4 for UR made a difference). AoD would also win if results were sorted by the % enjoyed tab, if only votes of monocled users were taken into account and if 1 votes were not taken into account.
    It also won in every other poll and that's because there was no ranking system there and no downvoting was possible.

    As a rabid AOD fan, I don't mind that UR won, UR is a wonderful game too.

    Seems like some UR fans do get very emoshunal about it though

    (It's OK Vault Dweller, try again in 2022)

    those are meaningless unofficial fan polls that hold about as much weight as the watch poll

    this is the only poll that matters and it is clear that AoD is not as good as Underrail, I just don't understand why some AoD superfans can't realise this, they're really making themselves look silly

    This poll is also meaningless since it didn't use the tested and true point system that, for example, led to our "Best RPGs of all time" list, which was highly regarded on the internet from what I could read about it. This poll is complete garbage I'm afraid - even if I agree with most of the results. You cannot take a poll seriously where people distribute 1's and 5's willy nilly for games they have NEVER played, touched or heard about. How many do you think actually listened to 'only vote on games you played'? I promise you, it wasn't a lot.
