    I am not seeing how they could fuck up V though unless development was as troublesome as IV's. Game really felt like as if three different directors were working/directing the game at the same time. Music of V is already on point, and the cast doesn't look as fucking horrible as 4A's cast. Let's just hupe that V's battle system will be as good as 4A's. Also, change your profile picture back to the old one.

    Cyberpunk now that Nexusmods has a decent amount of incline gameplay/AI mods to inject into it.

    As Skyrim Anniversary Edition is going to feature a fishing minigame, I am afraid I have to go with Todd yet again.

    I haven't beaten a single western developed crpg released in 2021, despite buying a few.

    I have played Solasta. Other than that, I beat Biomutant. Add some 2021 jrpgs, and that's it.

    I can't really make a serious list this year. Neither is it worth it for me to vote in any GoTY threads.

    My aim has been to complete some of my backlog, but there have also been more replays of old games, than I anticipated.

    Let me see... WOTR , cringey writing, most companions are forgettable , strongest woke agenda ever. Everyone hate the crusade mini game , uninspired dull clone of HOMM with 3/4 of the stuff not working or gamebreaking bugs. When asked if people enjoyed the puzzles, its an overwhelming NO! button answer... Overtuned npc stats but its to compensate the brain dead AI , i can agree with you guys on that. Bugged, unoptimized , unplayable piece of shit with gamebreaking bugs but less than kingmaker release. End game so "epic" and bloated even meredoth got vaccinated for life. Can possibly fry your gpu if you dont force vsync .

    Verdict : 10/10, highly recommended , rpgcodex game of the year.

    I disagree, the endgame wasn't epic enough. Epic level RPGs should have you fight silly gods you hear about, not just wave at them.

    That's true but after the character builder your amazing PC ends up deep in shit which is the other 99% of the game.

    It was late last year, but Nox Archaist was everything you could expect from a mid-1980s Apple ][ Ultima, and then some. Strong incline. :incline:

    But to talk of Western games: Solasta, Wrath of the Righteous and Trials of Fire are the best games I played 2021, and all are flawed in some way.
    Wildermyth and Urtuk were pretty good aswell, but I didn't play them as much as I planned to. Nevertheless they share Trials of Fire's "flaw" of being mostly a procedural experience instead of hand crafted.
    None of those games are extremely good compared to previous years, if I had to vote now my vote would go to Solasta.
    Wasn't extremely impressed with Encased, that could have needed more time in Early Access. A difficulty option above "your rolls are not fudged in your favor" would have been nice.

    SMT has a pretty high quality baseline, it is very rare for a SMT game to be worse than slightly above mediocre.
    Would be pretty funny if it snatches Codex GOTY, 2020 a JRPG came quite close with Yakuza like a Dragon getting very high results while Wasteland III was the highest Western game.

    Just list them: name, date released, platform. Then dissect them just a little: type, bugs, pros, cons, end. Make it short and sweet.

    I honestly hesitate on playing any release thr first year or two. I might buy it if severeky discounted but until all its add-on DLC, and a generous amount of patching I just pass. It doesn't stop me from watching vids and weighing comments.

    WOTR GOTY? Eh.. dunno.

    It's the soy version of becoming a missionary. Also, the pay is too low to support a wholesome person with a wife and kids.
