    I would say that even within the context of "game writing" that DE fails to measure up to full-featured games like Arcanum, or even Fallout: New Vegas, as these are games that put extensive and coherent world-building and multi-quest design interaction at the forefront; writing in RPGs is about everything that goes into making the underlying mechanics function, not just about writing NPCs or weaving together a plot.

    Well I stand corrected then all the incline comes from Europe indeed.

    Not really no. Its still European mind making the game.

    The last new RPG I played was Stygian a few months ago. I wrote a review for the Codex. :)

    Before that, the latest RPG I played was Tides of Numenera. I have D:OS 2, Kingmaker, and Atom purchased, it's just a question of how long it will take to download for the first two, and I'm waiting for Atom's updates to cease before starting it.

    Ok, Germans have their holy ELEX, Estonians - DE. But I do not remember any good French or Italian cRPGs.

    The Germans have Realms of Arkania...

    DE reminds me of that Russian made FPS where the US invaded Russia and you played an ex-merc or something defending your little village. Jingoistic anti-West nonsense ahoy!

    Felt like shedding light on some facts in regard to this retarded thread:
    Communists, SJWs, game journalists, story mode proponents, pedophiles and Turks are scum that should be lined up and doused with napalm.
    Disco Elysium is not trying to turn you into a commie and is not going to take your combat away.
    Disco Elysium is GOTY 2019 and one of the best role-playing games in ages.
    Stop being butthurt and paranoid, it’s not good for your health.

    Nice drama thread. Well played, Jenkem. It needs more autism though to reach real Codexian heights.

    No.

    Why would would I be butthurt? Because DE was recognized as a good RPG and awarded for it? Because a number of indeed butthurt fags started a thread to call it decline? No, I come here to laugh at retards like you. Now go play some lizard romancing a skeleton or whatever it is you consider "good RPG". :lol:

    To be fair to games journalists the 2018 Game Award for Best RPG went to Monster Hunter World, so they have a history of not actually picking RPGs to win.
