    That's why this poll should be created and maintained by the staff here on the Codex, as it's the most relevant poll due to the nature of the site. Let them handle the alt voting, trolls, etc. I trust DarkUnderlord would supervise this process to ensure that there will be no shenanigans at work. We're talking about a fucking forum poll here, not rocket science!

    A proper official poll would confer prestige. No doubt in my mind most indie devs would take pride knowing their game won/ranked high on the official GOTY poll run by RPGCodex, the most prestigious RPG site of them all. It's another form of advertising their products.

    You would start liking them if you only tried some of the classics. I replayed Dragon Wars for the Amiga last year and had a ton of fun with it. I think a lot of posters here are suffering from an RPG deficiency and that is why they are so cranky.

    Now if only the PC-98 version had an English translation, because that seems to be the superior version out there.

    I wonder who gives this twitterfag the OK to humiliate the codex on twitter with a system of 1-4 rating. This is a total decline.

    This is why people vote with 4/4 for Wastland 3 and 1/4 for the rest of games need to be trashed. Your approach still not reveal real feel about Wasteland 3. Ironicaly, you call straight forward exploiters of your approach as trolls. More sopisticated trashers go under your radar.

    I've played Book of Heroes only and it is a shovelware-tier trash. Kinda dissappointed since I've finished River of Time for the first time recently and want more Dark Eye games.

    Oh I'm retarded. Missed Horizon's Gate in the list and forgot it was released this year. Despite it has some flaws and deserve solid 3/4 I ranked it for 4 as it feels like the only worthwhile RPG of 2020.

    There are ways we could do an authenticated poll without DU or others having to create infrastructure. One method off the top of my head:

    1. A form asks for Codex username.
    2. User rates games.
    3. Upon submission it provides a unique code.
    4. Code is posted in thread.
    5. Poll admin checks code against user in thread to verify identity (to prevent shenanigans)
    6. Vote is verified and added to results

    Downside of an approach like that, it means the person running the poll would have to periodically check the "code thread" and approve votes.

    An interesting method. Do you happen to work for Dominion, by any chance?

    Crikey I played a total of one game on that list in 2020. Therefore by default my personal GOTY is Cyberpunk. For fuck's sake....

    On another note I cracked open Underrail for the first time in 2020 and enjoyed it, so that's my unofficial GOTY.

    Wasteland 3 is the clear winner for me, this year, no doubt.

    I had a great time with it, and look forward to the DLC(s)

    Other than that, well, Cyberpunk is the 2nd best for me, disappointing, but yet still solid fun for what it is and mods will fix rest..

    Write a bot to scrape threads that have a specific prefix in the response: RESULT_ID: <id>

    Add ID to file and remove duplicates. Now you have a list of IDs without needing to constantly monitor the thread.

    Yep, you could do something like that as well.
