    That is the funny part. No one here is saying P2 would win, in fact, everyone knows DE is going to win.

    The likes of Borderlands, Monster Hunter and Assassin's Creed aren't RPGs either, but that doesn't stop them from being included in these polls.

    Everybody seems so sure Disco Elysium will win, but remember, this isn't a popularity contest like fanto's unofficial poll. Any game with a dedicated cadre of haters can have its average score tanked by them ranking it 1/4 en masse. This is the reason why JRPGs do so relatively well in our polls - they have a dedicated group of fans, but other people don't play them at all.

    But Pathologic 2 is a remake, not a sequel.

    In any case, it's not an RPG. It's not even a discussion, stop mixing up the adventure and RPG genres.

    The only reason why GOTY is Disco, not P2 for me is because it is the remake, not original idea.

    Tanking DE can only go so far, unfortunately; there needs to be a challenger - another game with a dedicated following, small as it may be (but not too small because then Bayesian average will tank it harder than all the haters). And this year has none. Outer Worlds, Greedfall and Stygian, all got a lukewarm reception at best. The only hope is that our JRPG brethren will bring Bloodstained to the top, but I doubt that - both because metroidvanias are a niche within a niche, and because JRPG folks are just as likely to give high ratings to visual novels.

    I never get to contribute to these because I'm years behind on RPGs. I literally just started UnderRail this week.

    Well disco does have levelling and point spending,tho the game is extremely easy. Still to say if those games are or not RPG,first we much come do decisive conclusion to the debate about "What is RPG?"!

    Talk about a dead genre. And the final nail in the earth will be no doubt the very witty Larian BG3.

    Maybe Mountain Blade 2 this year will heal my wounds. And to be less dark I guess Greedfall doing well was good news even if I didnt finish the thing.

    People are putting a ton of negative ratings on your post, yet you speak the truth.

    But don't worry, they will lose the poll anyway. :lol:

    100 % Disco Elysium desserves the award, and as such, I cast my 5 vote on that game only.

    It was kind of a lukewarm year all around.

    Underrail Exp being good, but abit disappointing actually, and outer worlds.. lol?

    Slay the Spire is actually a 2019 release!? What...? The game has been around for how many years now?

    Anyway, StS is good, so there's at least one serious option in the poll, but it's not going to win, sadly. I'm actually surprised at how few people played StS around here since we're not talking about a super hidden obscure game. StS sold several hundred thousands of copies.

    Codex thread:

    https://rpgcodex.net/forums/index.php?threads/slay-the-spire-is-a-pretty-cool-game.123316/

    Fun fact: the game is getting a forth character as FREE DLC. And I can say from experience Watcher is tons of fun.

    you could probably ask like 50 people what genre pathologic is and i doubt two of them would give the exact same answer. not even ice-pick really knows what to call it, one second it's a "horror rpg", the next it's a "survival adventure game"

    yes its definitely more engaging gameplay wise than disco but unfortunately, as we all know, game journos cant actually play videogames

    Grab the Codex by the pussy Pathfinder: Kingmaker
    I would like to nominate Path of Exile: Conquerors of the Atlas as the best expansion released this year, but it is not featured in this list. I realize that it's really a large patch, but it's also a serious end-game overhaul, the first in two years.
