You can express almost no agency as V, and what few choices you do have barely affects the narrative. RPGs are in a very sorry state when people are arguing whether or not a movie-game is an RPG. This shit could've been cooked up by Quantic Dream. Actually, that's an insult to Quantic Dream. Cyberpunk is even more railroady.

The fact that W3 is GOTY 2015 here does not make it a fact that it is an RPG
Can it be a Codex RPGOTY without being an RPG?

A redundant question, obviously it can. You are using circular logic.

EDIT:

How is a vote result a "subjective measurement"?
It is not a subjective measurement. Opinions, which are subjective, are what is measured here though. The polls result are factual, but you can not logically conclude that therefore the game is an RPG as that is based on subjective opinions. That can't be that hard can it?

Factual: W3 is RPGOTY 2015
not-factual: We know because of that, that it is an RPG.

Fine by me. Now, if a non-RPG was Codex RPGOTY 2015, why wouldn't another non-RPG contest the same prize in 2020?

Also funny that even if we agree that none of them are RPGs, CP2077 has more RPG elements in it than TW3.

I would not say that it should not. I think your argument is wrong on it's own merit. I am pretty much in favor of CP contesting in the GOTY polls and If it wins that is fine by me, it would just not be my choice.

I have not voiced that i believe that it should be excluded, and if that is your position thats fine but your argument is still circular and incoherent. For me, Cyberpunk is not an RPG this seems to be different for other people, so hell if i care if you think that it is.

The Witcher 3 was not only voted GOTY 2015 but also #15 on the Codex list of all time top 101 PC RPGs, which was only a year ago. Maybe fix your broken site if you are gonna have non-RPGs become eligible for ALL TIME greatest RPG lists.

Damn, just when I had believed it's not an RPG after all.

For the record, I didn't vote for Witcher 3 in 2015 and wouldn't vote for CP for RPGOTY. So I don't know what to tell you about the dumbfucks who call me a fanboy.

Ah yes the classic retard fanboy practice of trashing the developer's previous title to build up the current steaming pile of shit. Bethesda fanfags did the same thing with Oblivion, and then Skyrim after it. Your act is stale.

He merely gives people options. It's not his fault democracy fails occasionally.

I don't think it's unreasonable to disqualify non-RPGs from an RPG poll.

Your brain is stale. You are welcome to find a post by me where I say Witcher 3 is a) an RPG or b) a good RPG.

It has RPG elements, though.

Not exactly a ton of them, but enough to be called an Action-RPG.
Now, you could exclude all non-pure RPGs, but then you'd probably struggle to make a list of any size...

I don't think it's reasonable to give one man the power to define what counts as an RPG and what doesn't contrary to the will of the people.

You're right. That is too much power for one man to wield.

You wouldn't be trashing Witcher 3 if it wasn't convenient to your hilariously pathetic attempt to build up Cybpershit. Go choke on a dildo.

It's better if the list is as incloosive as possible and has everything with rpg elements in it, so it doesn't look like the person making the list is trying to nudge the votes toward a certain result. ("you choices are dungeon of naheulbeuk or knights of the chalice 2")

Besides, how would people be able to shit on Codexians for having shit taste if that shit taste isn't out in the open?
