    Wow, that really was a slow year for RPGs.

    I actually talked with my GF about this the other day. She also said that while she did play a lot of games last year, almost none of them were actually from 2019.
    Same here.

    And she actually plays more genres than just the RPG/strategy I do.

    This may just be a side effect of too many damn games coming out, though. My wishlist is long and hard, and steadily growing, just like my

    Also, I have to say, I love the butthurt about this vote every year just as much as I love the vote itself.
    Well done felipepepe .

    This has been a pretty good year for Adventures and puzzlers though. We got Gibbous, Whispers of a Machine, Detective Di, Baba Is You and probably a lot of other stuff I don't remember right now.

  5. I won't vote, because I didn't played every game on the list. It would be unfair.

    Wow, I actually played 3 whole games on that list, I consider that pretty impressive.

    The definition of RPG is about to change forever and few will survive the civil war that follows, but at least we can take comfort in knowing that Expedition will win best DLC/expansion.

    I didn't play a single game on that list and hadn't heard of most of them. I feel the Codex is not giving me contemporaneous information about what's new and hot. Although I am tempted to vote for Cat Quest II and The Outer Worlds just in the tradition of shitting up FP's hard work.

    Now back to trying to summon up the enthusiasm to play Pathfinder Kingmaker and failing.

    Sengoku Rance gets a spot on the top 100 rpgs list but can't even get a spot on the year end poll? After a full English release this year? The Puritans have taken over.

    Poll is missing sengoku rance, is therefore invalid.

    What a shit year two, only put down two votes, and both on the lower half of the scale.

    PART I: Best Expansions/DLCs

    Voted nothing because I did not play any of these


    PART II: Best PC Ports/Remasters/Remakes

    Of all I only played Boringlands and it was one of the most boring games I have ever played.


    PART III: Best RPGs of 2019

    Disco Elysium - good game. Has flaws but overall it was a great adventure/RPG mix. I enjoyed it a lot.

    Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones - nice atmosphere and interesting setting, but gameplay is total trash and just frustrates a lot. Fuck this game.

    The Outer Worlds - Obsidian finally outdid Bethesda. One of the most memorable games as complete fucking garbage. Possibly even worse than Fallout 3.



    Games from the vote that I still have to play are Titan Outpost, Theseus: Journey to Athens, Outward, and Greedfall. Maybe after Chinese New Year Steam sale or later.


    Why no Pathologic 2? While I did not play it, therefore wouldn't vote, the first Pathologic was amazing.

    Well, you were lucky. I didn't play a single one on the list this time. As a write in, I would say Shovel Knight, King of Cards.

    By the way, will there be a poll for RPG of the year?

    It is a good game but hardly an rpg or a goty. You play it a few times,get the grass crown and move on. Also it could be very repetitive if you suck at it.

    I wasn't going to say anything, but if RUNE 2 is in the list, heck, Pathologic 2 deserved a spot also.

    It might be this year's trap option, to filter out troll votes.

    Just kidding, everyone knows that Disco Edgelordium is the trap option.

    Stop this faggotry, felipepepe. We even have this post on fanta's list:
    Most people here already know that Disco is going to win, it was a shit year, we are just complaining about how your guys bend the rules to allow some game to be rpg(a fucking 3D visual novel) and other doesn't, when both cases we have the dev themselves calling it rpg. The only reason most fags here says Disco is a rpg is because they love it.
    Yeah it's that simple, in codex the game is a rpg as long as I like it and it's not if I dislike it. Just look how back when Age of Decadence was released, there was people saying it was not a rpg and in fact a CYOA game, the same people that disliked the game.

    Nothing special, I just missed it. These small releases are a pain to track, there's no good list anywhere, I have to get SteamSpy's full list. This year it had 2165 RPGs, so I usually filter out games with less than 20,000 owners, to remove all the RPG Maker crap. Unfortunately, Din's Legacy didn't sell 20k so far, so the filter removed it and I forgot about it.

    That's bullshit. Pathologic 2 is a cult classic, is exactly the kind of the game the Codex loves to look cool talking about. But the first one was never voted as RPG in any of the several polls we made, it's just now people are EXTREMELY butthurt about Disco Elysium and want to create drama.

    I always thought the standard Codex "it's officially considered an RPG if the devs call it an RPG" works well.

    Either way the butthurt potential is off the charts, so good job. If we're lucky we might even get one or two "I'm leaving forever!" threads.

    Wow, surprised I didn't play any of these. In 2019 I was just playing some of my backlog like The Witcher 3.
