    In my humble opinion I believe there should be a new requirement for reviewers for this site. The new requirement would be to have the reviewer list their top 10 favorite games of the last five years in their signature or profile or somewhere easily viewed.

    This isn't their top 10 rpgs of all time. This is top 10 favorite games of any genre in the last five years. And will need to be updated as titles expire.

    What do you retards think? I'm guessing you will vote no since you should pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

    This being the Codex, you're supposed to stalk their post history and figure it out yourself.

    Retarded idea. What would stop Prime Junta someone from writing "Fallout 1, Age of Decadence and Arcanum are my favourite RPG" when in reality it's Fallout 4, Pillars of Eternity and Skyrim?

    You're missing the point, swap Fallout 1 and Arcanum with Underrail and Neo Scavenger and it still gives you nothing, it won't improve the quality of the review.

    Should reviewers be required to list their top 10 favourite Roqua alts? Butchy was right up there. Those were the days.

    Okay, Neo Scavenger tells me the like survival games with very lite rpg elements, which I do not. Underrail would indicate we may have some crossover taste. Name 8 more and we'll see how useful it is to me to listen to you when it comes to opinions on games.

    I'd rather have the top 10 devs or publishers the reviewer is receiving doritos from.

    I don't need an alt to mock you relentlessly, roqua. I'll happily do so in full public view.

    That... wasn't the point Roqua. If he says those games, but his actual favorites include Fallout 4, the newest COD, and JRPG Dating Sim #474920, it means absolute nothing and can't be properly verified.

    I think the idea isn't bad in general. But let the reviwer list his top 5 rpgs in the review which are similar than the one he just reviewed. It would help to see where he's coming from and could be a reference for similar/better games.

    Why would reviewers lie about their favorite games? I'm sick of people who like a handful of rpgs that came out decades ago but hate anything new that isn't a console game or an Asian/childrens game. These people's review are useless to people who actually like rpgs.

    What is so wrong with being easily able to find out if someone's opinion is useful to you or not? Why the resistance? I can name my favorite games of the last five years in like two seconds in no particular order- WL2, Underrail, AoD, MMX, D:OS, TToN, XCOM 1 and 2, PoE, Tyranny. I'm not ashamed of this, nor would I ever try to hide it or lie about it. Two of them aren't even rpgs but are fucking awesome especially with the LW mods. I like crpgs.

    Why does everyone here want reviewer's to hide the games they like?

    I disagree. What is alike and not alike is subjective. If someone's top 10 favorite games of the last five years are games I never even heard of it doesn't matter if the reviewer kind of likes a handful of games that I also may like.

    If this site is such a hardcrore rpg site why is it ashamed to list the top ten favorite games of its reviewers of the last five years?

    What does everyone have against being quickly able to tell if a review will be worth reading or not.

    We all believe people are individuals with their own tastes and preferences, correct? If so, if someone had complete opposite tastes and preferences than you, why would a review they wrote ever be of use to you? Do you like wasting your time and effort?

    Since I couldn't name you 10 different games I've liked from that time period, I won't hold it a necessity for a reviewer either.

    No. He also shouldn't have to provide his tax return, his college transcripts, or pics of his last digital prostate exam.

    Unless it's somehow relevant to the review, of course.

    No wait, I had a flash of inspiration, you're implying we're arguing against it because we don't want people doing it just because. As opposed to because it's stupid. Gotcha. Maybe. Who even knows.
