    Tranny games like Cuckfinder shouldn't be in the poll IMO, just replace with "I am a l1brul faget" option.
    Also I nominate Vagrus: Riven Realms.

    I am not the most passionate advocate for the game, but the year was weak and the game was good.

    Also depending on how strict we want to go on genre faggotry definitions:
    Trials of Fire and Gloomhaven were the best turn based combat with rpg elements you could get in 2021.

    No reason to create a goty thread if Pathfinder 2 will crush the competition and become deservingly the best rpg in 2021. No other rpg comes remotely close to it.

    Todd Howard came to my house. Pulled out a firearm and told me that if I don't recommend Skyrim as the 2021 GOTY that he's going to kill me and my family.

    That's quite the coincidence, because he came to my house as well. Told me the exact same thing.

    I'm so sorry about you and your family.

    Trials of Fire successfully combined cards and hexes. That's noteworthy gameplay design.

    Most of these nominations look like they are for "higher end production values of a thing similar to what I liked before". Absolutely important to have games like that in the market, but maybe "least-bad execution" should be a different category. :lol:

    +1 for Bravely Default II if we're only going with games that were on PC. Shin Megami Tensei V was the best game this year but it's a Switch exclusive.

    I would count SMTV as PC released as well because you can emulate a pirated version on PC from day one, and being able to pirate a game should count the same as it being properly released on PC on a forum as slavic as this one.

    Can't think of a single one... either it's been a really shitty year games wise or I'm getting too old for this.

    +1 suggestion for Dungeon Encounters, I don't usually care for JRPGs, but this one is actually pretty good.
