    Fanmade prequel to Gothic series, only that the events will take place somewhere in Myrtana, not Khorinis.

    It's been a weak year but I'll add votes for Trudograd and Encased.
    Do FO:Nevada or Olympus qualify?

    Can dlc be nominated? Also is it RPGOTY or just GOTY (thread suggests just goty, but forum suggests rpgoty)

    LoL a lot of the common games are recommended. The idea was that people would recommend some obscure indies or something,because every year there is a bunch of people whining about that shit. Every time there is someone "why didn't you include this obscure game that have like 5 sold copies???" And now everyone is recommending the obvious goty contenders :lol: . Oh well at least it is an active thread about rpgs,enjoy it while it lasts.



    LoL I should TM this shit and make shit ton of money every fucking year. We had one of the strongest years in a long time and you people still whine about being weak lol.

    Could probably be more clear about that in opening post, which seems to ambigously suggest "more for" rather than "only for". (Of course, you would STILL have got all those off-topic suggestions, but you'd have a better case admonishing them :lol: )

    Anyways, here's another one I just remembered, which is not too bad (fairly unique setting, some sort of tree-born trollish characters who for mysterious reasons speak english with african accent):

    Arboria

    https://store.steampowered.com/app/924070/Arboria/

    It's a roguelite RPG. Surprisingly good.

    It's a Slav game. It's a guaranteed contender with all the Slav shills on RPG Codex.

    They are not off topic,was just hopping for more niche shit. Might even find something interesting to play. Also this is the kodex,off topic shit is normal. As long as it is not pointless whining from people that don't play games and just regurgitate the same "muh decline,muh no good games" shit,i have no problem with a bit of derailing :).

    It is a good game,far better than anything that kwan has delivered this year :smug:. Tho Trudograd is better,also black book and even vagrus.

    I heard it's shit. Sounds like some Slavic cash grab where they front-load all the content.

    It'll probably take the #2 spot. After Wrath of the Righteous (Slavs go woke) and before Gamedec (Slavs fail at Disco Elysium).

    Nobody cares about Fant's GOTY threads, but Vagrus deserves more love. Most of this forum is too busy jerking off to Trannies in Cuckfinder to actually play it.

    I'm not voting this year, but people should be able to vote for whatever 2021 PC RPG they want to pick.

    I suppose the biggest RPG releases this year are:

    Solasta
    Encased
    Pathfinder 2
    Mechajammer

    Haven't played any of them. Loop Hero is not an RPG - innovative, but gets boring fast. Vagrus looks interesting though.

    Since I am unsure about the rules of inclusion I am listing everything I liked this year that has a codex thread:

    Age of Fear 4
    - tacticool subforum, probably the weakest AoF but still aight

    The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante
    - Suzerain clone, the storyfags like it

    Gloomhaven
    - adaptation of the best rated board game on boardgame geeks. Very codexian

    Himeko Sutori - even if not many people played it because it is codexian made

    Siege Survival Gloria Victis - inferior This War of Mine Clone, but still worth playing

    Also something where I like the developer (Airship Syndicate) but havn't played yet due to absolute disinterest in League of Legends:

    Ruined King A League of Legends Story

    Mindnight Protocol, sorta-kinda. Questionable RPG but a fairly interesting game nevertheless that could use some exposure.
