    i agree about lack of aaas, i was talking about their disappearance (and deep suckage) a couple months ago, but i've never seen as many releases as lately, every day waves after waves of new titles. all of them useless crap, but still if nforce had still been alive it'd have been drowned.

    Currently, Elex 2 and Silksong are the only games worth looking forward to. Don't need any watch for that, let alone crackwatch. The wallet is ready, just release them ffs.

    21 hasn't had big release aside from MH Rise and Outriders

    So far I have only bought: Kaze and the wildmasks, Loop Hero, Nioh 2 and the Kingdom Hearts Remaster. I don't remember ever getting so few in one quarter.

    I really hope Silksong will come close to Hollow Knight. It's actually the only game I'm looking forward to, I think, since I'm convinced Elden Ring will be shit.

    Is there a definitive list of AAA shops? I would guess not as it's a vague classification to begin with.

    In 2020 I played five excellent RPGs (or RPG-adjacents).
    • The Dungeon Of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet Of Chaos - Artefacts Studio
    • Hades - Supergiant
    • Monster Train - Shiny Shoe
    • Erannorth Reborn - Spyridon Thalassinos
    • Chronicon - Subworld
    None of those are AAA. Great games are still being made, but not by the big studios.

    AAA games are shit. Not even "gamers" like them.

    Technically correct, but they're putting out way more worthwhile and wholesome games than AAA and AA. It's THE market right now even though there's still a hell of a lot of shit.

    Not to mention Troubleshooter: Abandoned Children, the Codex's #3 RPG of 2020, voted ahead of Naheulbeuk although it has even less exploration and is really more of a squad-based tactics game with extensive RPG character-related elements.

    Piracy finally vanquished by the lack of releases and people not even giving a fuck about them to even pirate the few AAA left .

    Troubleshooter was #2 in the poll that mattered.
