    Dear, good evening;


    the discussion (here: <https://rpgcodex.net/forums/threads/crpgaddict.54062/page-73>) about must play games gave the idea to propose a thread highlighting Codex’s must read archives.

    Since I joined just some months ago, what are important and famous threads that shaped the community? Could be an entire thread, an important interaction (pages of a thread), some interesting or different remark (by prestigious users, developers, critics).

    I feel the urge to say that I use Codex for unique takes on role-playing games (sometimes video games as a whole); I’m not that interested in defining threads regarding politics or economy, but the ones which polished what the community come to agree as indispensables to understand the phenomenon role-playing games.

    The most important thread on the Codex: Why Did Sir-Tech Go Bankrupt?

    The sub-forum in which it is located is also the repository of several more of the Codex's Greatest Threads of All Time. :M

    I'd say grimwulfs rimworld & dwarf fortress lets plays are genuine codex folklore and therefore a must read material.

    Anyone got a quest compass to these?

    On the topic of let's plays, what about MicoSelva's prestigious Baldur's Gate LPs? I thought they were great.

    Black Gayser thread's first 30 pages or so are pure gold(en shower).
    Also would recommend the Ellis Studio games threads and the ensuing butthurt.

    The 41K one has been rescued. There is a thread where madlad Denim Demon compiled pdfs of at a couple of Codexian LPs, including 41K.

    Here and here are the complete(?) databases of all the LPs. Might be useful.

    Once your account becomes of age. You need to visit propserium. Prosper's posts and art pieces are a fucking trip. He's also making a game, which, is too, a fucking trip. Oh yeah. Roqua's amazing threads in Retardo land is a must read. Don't forget to read Cleve's threads either. That shit is actually hilarious. This is my favorite post in that "why-did-sir-tech-go-bankrupt" thread:
