I didn't hear about this until just 20 minutes ago, so I was far too late to vote, but that doesn't matter much because I only played one game on the entire list... and it wasn't that good.

If I had gotten a chance to vote, however, I hereby state that I would have downvoted Fallout 76 for many obvious reasons, though I normally don't do such a thing.

Good results :salute:

Just needed a small section to gloat over the corpses of the absolute duds, Sword Coast Legends style...


PS: Typo in the heading :"DLCs/Expasions"

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire Steve gets a Kidney but I don't even get a tag.
Fairly satisfied with the results, but voting that shameless cashgrab as 2nd best DLC is disgraceful. Charging 8 yuro for just an additional companion and class would have been rightfully ridiculed had this been any other game.

Yes, with all due respect for Pathfinder (it deserves its #1 spot) The Wildcards being ahead of The Forgotten Sanctum is a really unserious result. Fanboys gonna fanboy! At least it got close.

Fair results. Having played both Kingmaker and PoE2, I must concede Kingmaker was the better game, even though it had some huge homo characters. I'll give it another shot when they've fully DLC'd and fully patched the game.

I think Aeon of Sands may have scored pretty well if people had only played it. But I haven't even played it myself (yet).

I played it a bit and was disappointed... the setting and writing are cool, but it feels like a mediocre 90s blobber.

It's extremely faithful and retro, adds nothing new to the genre (not even widescreen), but also fails to rival even B-side blobbers like Stone Prophet.

yeah the setting and writing being cool is pretty much what I heard. guess I shouldn't chalk it up as more than that without first playing it myself

Whether due to my own negligence or the option not being initially included, I regret that I didn't get to praise Ghost of a Tale with a well deserved top score. Undoubtedly a highlight of the year, it still astounds me to learn it was created by a one-man studio.

Wasn't sure if Kingdom Come's early release in the year was going to be an advantage or disadvantage. RPG fans were given more time to play it than the late releases of Pathfinder and ATOM, but on the other hand those games are fresher in the mind. ATOM and Kenshi had December releases, meaning they didn't get out of the gate until the race was nearly over, and yet they still nabbed a respectable third and forth place!
