    Didn't know felipepe was a DE lover. I see now that he is :)

    Anyway, I didn't vote in any 2019 polls because I don't think there were any standout games or RPGs made in 2019. I refuse to cast "anti" votes for other games, won't stoop that low, which is why I did not vote.

    I find it more troubling that you're playing Bloodlines.

    Tbh, we simply don't have enough rpgs being released to justify an annual poll. 2015 was an awesome exception, with two great games fighting for the top, either one could've made it and nobody would really bother to question the winner's legitimacy.

    2019 doesn't even have much in the way of rpg releases, let alone good ones. So some shovelware got chosen because there was nothing else.

    Who cares, this same time next year DE won't even be remembered. Kinda like the last cowaduty, tbh. The tasteless masses will move on to their next overhyped crap.

    Give us some statistics compared to GOTY winners from last 5 years Felipe. Like, total amount of votes, positive/negatives etc. Would be interesting to see how DE compares.

    Not a surprise, 2019 didn't have a single 'bona fide' RPG that wasn't critically flawed in some way. Worth remembering last time we had one - Pathfinder - it won handily.

    Well, I wouldn't call Pathfinder, not critically flawed.

    Not to mention Codex GOTY Divinity: Original Sin 2.

    This is my take: There are a lot of people who vote in our GOTY polls that are perfectly fine with enjoying the mainstream stuff (not that there's anything wrong with that!). That's why poor TOW at the bottom of this year's list has 50% positive reviews as well, given to it by a large number of voters.

    So when you take that critical mass of mainstream game lovers, and give it an extra edge - turn-based combat, authentic oldschool appeal, particularly good writing, etc - you get a game that's very likely to win #1. Even if it has flaws.

    Hmmm between this poll and mine,i believe that we could get a good grasp at what people like. Fepipe's poll shows how the general fell is in general,while mine makes a direct choice of what the codex would pick if they have a single choice.

    Well there are people that dislike story by itself...so there must be weirdos that dislike combat too.

    Death Mark was released last year, wonder why it didn't make the list. As far as I can tell, it's just as much of an RPG as Disco Elysium. +M

    So you're saying the fake votes were the negative ones and not any of the positive huh, agenda acknowledged. :hmmm:

    A very good visual novel, an igavania, and a card game, why dont we put consoles games in the poll ? Its really voting for the game you liked in 2019 now.
    One day it will happen , things change, i was shocked to see Infinitron was playing a rpg yesterday ! Such world shattering event, and it was AOD for a good 4 hours . A cyoa yes , but with some strong rpg elements still… Years after years posting about those rpg games , this must have triggered something inside , he finally asked himself what the fuck those were about.

    Hey kid, do you want to know which card game is the best in town? How about platformers, you interested in those? Surely you enjoy Visual Novels as well?

    It's funny that the DLC top 5 is the only one that has 5 rpgs.
