Here we are again, ready to see the best RPGs of 2022!

This year we went back to a Codex-only vote. Also to a 1-5 scale, because I forgot to ask to change it to 1-4 lol. In total, we had 364 voters, who rated 157 RPGs that came out last year.

For those of you who just want the TL;DR, here are the winners:

RPG CODEX'S 2022 GOTYs:
#1 - Elden Ring
#2 - Knights of the Chalice 2
#3 - King Arthur: Knight's Tale

For the full results and fancy graphs, just follow the link below.

Shadorwun: Hong Kong Divinity: Original Sin 2 Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire Pathfinder: Wrath I'm very into cock and ball torture I helped put crap in Monomyth
My predicted top 3, but swap second and third games.

I thought that King Arthur would beat KotC2.

Nice to see Persona 5R up there, top game.

Really wanna try out a lot of those games in the top 10.

From the list, I have the top 3 games in my library, and I tried 42 games in the list as either demos, or full release, but not completed.

To clarify, not all games that I tested were tested in 2022, some were in 2021.

Expected Expeditions Rome to be higher, other than that, not too surprising.

i'd put trails from zero over persona 5 frankly. while both are very talky games, zero is prob the most fun i had with the franchise since sky 1 due to its super tight design and lower than usual stakes of shit. persona 5 dragged on for over 90 hours during which it had a dozen good fights maybe, also 3/4 of the social element is worthless build-wise

Felipe's algorithm is tuned to heavily penalize games that fit the description of "That tentpole AA isometric RPG that lots of Codexers played but many thought was kinda meh in the end".

Black Geyser at #127? Something is not right with this system when literal shovelware is ranked higher than a pretty decent and popular RPG.

The biggest news of this thread though is that Maxie is back.

Don't have any of the top 10 in my library, I will eventually get Butterlord and KotC 2 of course.

better than at initial release but i still hope you like reloading every fight twenty times
Could you elaborate? Is it that hard?
well despite changes that admittedly reduced some of the bullshit here and there, it still boils down to winning initiative or getting wiped later on

of course you can just play with sanctioned cheat modes that give you various unfair advantages, but if you must resort to that, you have to start questioning the point

Wow, I'm surprised Bloody Spell and ELEX 2 got such low scores. I enjoyed them a lot. But apparently to 'dex consensus they are vastly inferior to The Impregnation of the Elves and Super Lesbian Animal RPG.

And Elden Ring is now an RPG to follow by developers.

The decline of this place is unbearable for me...

'dex lost its legitimacy for good this time.

meh, given the results it’s not surprising that I didn’t have much interest in last year’s games. Pretty weak GOTY this year. Still much better than 2019 but definitely not as good as 2021
