Sauce: https://www.gematsu.com/2022/03/ves...taria-saga-ii-the-sacred-sword-of-silvanister

So, I've unilaterally replaced the duplicate (145th Gaiden entry) with another 2022 TRPG: Far Away From Home. :M

Please decide if anything needs to be done to the duplicate entry (145th).

Shit dude, wtf. Props. This helps a lot.

Although Memoirs of a Battle Brothel is Very Positive at 85%, instead of Mostly Positive

Wow. There is actually a lot of interesting looking games on that list that I never heard of. The Steam reviews aren't very kind though. It looks like lots of poor execution or unfinished products.

Data was retrieved anonymously from Steam.

So for those (few) games' review ratings that require Steam login to access, I've to rely on SteamDB which (most likely) differs from actual Steam page.

Ah okay, no worries.

Just for those that are curious, Steamdb has their own rating system that differs from Steam significantly. They have this "real review" score which is sort of convoluted and honestly, I don't really understand the need for it.

It has the greatest impact on games that have low review counts and can skew it by 10% or more. For example, KotC2 has a 79% on Steam (so close to Very Positive!), but on Steamdb it's a 71.8%.

Never really looked at it, but Knights of the Chalice 2 does look potentially interesting.

For those who played both, is Black Geyser or KotC2 better?

I haven't played a single game on that list, I made sure to go through it carefully, including Elden Ring.

Guess I was too busy playing older titles last year...

Ah okay, no worries.

Just for those that are curious, Steamdb has their own rating system that differs from Steam significantly. They have this "real review" score which is sort of convoluted and honestly, I don't really understand the need for it.

View attachment 33558

It has the greatest impact on games that have low review counts and can skew it by 10% or more. For example, KotC2 has a 79% on Steam (so close to Very Positive!), but on Steamdb it's a 71.8%.
I think they want the rating to depend on the total number of reviews. E.g.

Review_score_1000 = 500/1000 = 0.5
Review_score_10 = 5/10 = 0.5

Review_score_1000 = Review_score_10

Both have different TotalReviews but the same ratio, hence the need for a Rating formula.

The rating form rewards high TotalReviews because the logarithmic part of this formula gets smaller with high TotalReviews.
The +1 is for security, i.e. log(0) is undefined, so log(0+1) is needed.

As we can see the ReviewScore gets a punishment with (ReviewScore-0.5), but the punishment gets smaller when the log gets bigger.

I only played two games from the list. KotC 2 was the better one by far. I also voted for a third one - and no, not the "Lesbian Animal something" game - although only because it looks like some woke shit without any hot lesbians. Otherwise i totally would. Tyranicon got my vote for his Battle Brothel masterpiece, as i promised :smug:.



Edit:
i forgot there was actually a good game released last year (shadows over loathing)
I don't want to make any advertisement but a game with words Knights and Chalice in the title wasn't bad at all.

The editor of KotC2 is already enough to be one of the best games of the year, easily the best module editor since Neverwinter Nights.

It really sucks that such a tool led to exactly 00001 actual modules, Dorateen's Hearkenwold.

You'd think a man who describes himself as an "economic expert" would be better at pricing his games.

Tacgnol I'd rather pay Pierre €40 than pay €80 (that's the price over here) for newest AAA open world action RPG #752.

For all the codexers complaining about decline, and no cool games coming, there are a lot of codexers that ignore good games. This isn't just related to Knights of the Chalice II.
