    Play it with int 1, and you'll still breeze past the case and put all of the clues together. Play it with motorics of 6, and you'll still get shot, even if you autistically plan your whole build around 'combat'. My build functioned in a way that went against what the stat system dictated. Throw in the probabilistic way of resolving each encounter and what you get is a chaotic sludge of dialogue and outcomes that feels unbridled. I finished the game and had no idea what role I played, because it certainly wasn't the one on my chargen screen.

    Finally after all these years of hot debate, the elusive "What is an RPG?" question that has been answered.

    felipepepe you should redo the Top Codex RPG and have God Hand in the options, since that is the best RPG ever.

    EDIT: Also throw in Ninja Gaiden and Devil May Cry for fair competition.

    You sound old. "wasting my time" or "it has to have combat, like I'm used to" sound like problems.

    Young men see challenges. Old men see problems.

    I don't want to antagonize you, but you seem to fall under the same category Roxor falls into, where he likes a certain way of doing things, and can't seem to be able to expand his circle. If I show Darth Roxor just half of the 30+ screenshots of the pure shit I've encountered in ELEX, his head would explode - what game do you have it for, Jasede? I'll play it (this is me taking up a challenge), just so I can rack up screenshots that would make your head explode. :P

    Because DE is a better CYOA than AoD (and more fun as well).

    Show Spoiler
    Also he has some mental issues. For real.

    It's indeed clearly superior to AOD, but no point spiting on things we liked, AOD was a welcome sight during the RPG draught. A bit disappointing to me i was expecting more from it, maybe too much from an indie team .

    Good game on par with Planescape: Torment, although I expected something a bit larger in scope. The haters are just a bunch of n00bs.

    AoD has a cool combat tho, which makes game enjoyable even if you don't like CYOA

    I already agree with you that at some point in the story all the freedom is thrown out of the window that you'll still get shot no matter if you have 1 or 15 Reaction Speed. But, again, it doesn't mean that the system misled you or is misleading at all. The fault lies not in the system (in fact, the system is perfectly fine. Apex, in fact), but rather how the devs handled and executed the content partway through.

    And if you actually read the rest of my post, you would've known I mentioned it to you that you don't 'breeze' through the case with 1 INT, because (for example) you don't get to establish the victim's identity with your big brain and had to rely on witnesses account on that. Fuck, I'm playing Sensitive char with 1 in Drama and the skill didn't even show up (even when called out by Volition :lol:) to chime in during conversation with Disco Lady, whereas previously my Thinker char with 7/8 Drama screamed the whole time and let me push her over the edge with no effort. And hell, you don't 'put all of the clues together' *by yourself*, did you conveniently forgot Kim was there all the time to cover the holes left by your weaker stats and skills?

    And what does 'build function in a way that went against what the stat system dictated' even mean? Isn't this a problem with your expectation of the system, instead of the system itself?
    Is it, tho?

    BTW: jeuxvideo gave Disco Elysium around 3 awards and had it nominated in most categories.

    They gave GOTY to Death Stranding though.
