    Since it seems some people still have difficulty in defining what is an RPG, let me help you:

    Divinity: Original Sin 2 - RPG
    Prey - not an RPG
    Battle Brothers - not an RPG
    Expeditions: Viking: - RPG
    Dominions 5 - not an RPG
    Nier: Automata - not an RPG
    ELEX - RPG
    West of Loathing - RPG*
    Nioh - RPG*
    Spellforce 3 - not an RPG

    In the future, please consult my expertise before making shameful mistakes.

    *) See, I am not a grognard. I am a tolerant person with an open mind. I'll even allow some weaboo action games and markiplier-endorsed crap.

    For future reference, X-Com is not an RPG. Jagged Alliance games are not RPGs. System Shock 2 is not an RPG. Warcraft 3 is not an RPG. Traps are gay. Hitler did nothing wrong. It was aliens.

    I thought Spellforce was pretty heavy on the RPG side of things. Never played it though.

    Some guys are pretty heavy on the make-up and dresses side of things. Still doesn't turn them into women.

    I think we can all agree that the results of the Google™ poll should be null and void. The official results of the Codex-only™ poll that included only TrueRPG's™ should be seen as the actual GOTY results.

    So you guys bitching about "SJW" game, but eager to do the same that many social media did? I mean many internet social media removed downvotes, because bunch of fucktards from SJW (and others) was afraid that their precious posts would be downvoted. Seems fanaticism fried your brain and you started contradict yourself. Democracy working fine, just degenerates like you can't bear others opinions and want to silence anybody who doesn't fit your agenda ( again remind me about SJW, lol).
    And you can't even describe good game. I have seen you shitting on other games in different subforums, but you never can come up with something more than your arrogant opinion about "how gaming industry should fit MY view on things".

    I know, I should be smarter than this and forget to trying use logic on reason on people who decided playing little bitch on gaming forum for rest of their lives, but sometimes you remind me religious fanatics, who want reinforce their view on others and I don't want this forum to become another shithole where people get banned for their opinion.

    It's definetely more RPG than Prey, but it still strategy with rpg elements.

    I never said i had a good taste in games, i love playing on consoles, i love jrpg's, i love playing dumb action adventure games like Uncharted as much as i love playing Underrail... that still doesnt change the fact that i, personally, think that Larian is an overrated developer and the shit that they have been churning out for years is just that... shit.

    The ELEX butthurt this year is even more delicious than when Underrail beat AoD. I honestly didn't think it was possible.

    Yea, it pretty much sums up my impressions of DOS2 as well. Game is not masterpiece, but good for what it is. Considering romance stuff, I told some hunter faggot to fuck off and it was all romance that I experienced in the DOS2. Not finished it, though, stopped when you almost leave the island.

    All this Jasede and Co DOS2 trolling kinda reminds me of those people who cried about Zevran romance in DAO, or that what was his name - Anders? - forced them into buttsex romance in DA2, or people saying that they just was trying to be nice with characters in ME and that led to a sex scene, etc. Granted, DAO was only good for what it is, and DA2 was shit, but even Bioware didn't force the player to fuck someone, and it was entirely possible to play the game without engaging in romance. And we are talking about Bioware, who made the romance their staple feature. In DOS2, at least when playing with friends, romance isn't forced on anyone. The game has one of the best turn-based combats in recent RPGs. It's not perfect, it's not a Gold Box RPG, or ToEE, but it can be challenging, entertaining and can be won in a wide variety of ways. Moreover, while writing often is nothing to write home about, it's way more tolerable and less cringey than in DOS1. But even if we won't grade on a curve, writing is serviceable, and game world's interactivity, very good combat and non-linear quest solutions make the game worthy of being a GOTY. Of course, it wasn't a very good year and DOS2 doesn't really have enough competitors, but still - it's a good game.

    each time i read 'it's not perfect like in x but' i want to stab someone, and reading it in close proximity to 'has one of the best x' only intensifies that feeling

    Expedition Viking is my most played recent RPG after Underrail. I enjoyed the mechanics, the writing,
    the setting and the graphics. It took my a bit at first, I did even bounce from it first, but I did that
    too with Fallout 2 and the beloved Temple of Trials. I ended replaying Viking three times in row.
    It is not good for what it is. It is good.

    As for Divinity, after playing Vikings I found it just tedious. After all the positive feedback
    I thought, well, it must be good. After forcing myself to play it for some hours, I didn't return
    to it. It felt like a chore. Like reading the first 100 pages of a book, and deciding, if to continue,
    in the hope that it will get more interesting, or discard it, deciding it's not worth your time.

    I mean, I can understand why some might not like the combat or writing, but what exactly is wrong with a bit of gay skeleton sex? If anything, I thought this feature would be met with enthusiasm in these very prestigious halls.

    In fact, it makes a lot of sense to me that Jasede's ire towards D:OS2 has to do with the fact that the game features romancable lizardmen, but not furries. It's ok Jasede, I'm sure that if you provide Larian with your honest feedback, they will accomodate you in D:OS3.

    No mod support and abandoning the game soon after launch. Maybe there was something else.

    :what: >>>>>>>> :dead: >>>>>>>> :rage:


    What is this .... I don't even... ah the codex is done, I need to find a new place to discuss RPGs. You people voted for an RPG with kid humor and all the gravitas of a belch joke, and some crappy action game with female droids? Over ELEX? And most of you didn't even play ELEX? And most of you played like 1 rpg the whole year, and voted for that 1 rpg and didn't see the problem with that? There needs to be some filtering for people who actually play RPGs, the rest should just stick to GD/Shoutbox.
