Had 18 games listed initially, but giving numerous "RPG of the year"-caliber games 1 point each just to get more games onto the list didn't sit right with me. Even if I chose to list 25 games with 1 point each, I'd still have to cut out a dozen or two RPGs I would've liked to see represented.

Hence settled on the boring option of consolidating my points instead.

25 points is too little to spend on such excellent and admirable CRPGs.

So I had to cull games that are just as much FPS (System Shock 2 and Deus Ex) and games with a Strategic layer (Jagged Alliance 2 and OpenXcom).
I was also very tempted to cull the Fallouts since "everyone" will vote on them.

Without looking at my votes 5 years ago, this is my new vote:

2 points:
Chaos Strikes Back

1 point:
Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord
Wizardry VI: Bane of the Cosmic Forge
Might and Magic II: Gates to Another World
Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven
Dungeon Master
Ultima V: Warriors of Destiny
Pool of Radiance
Pools of Darkness
Dark Queen of Krynn
The Magic Candle
Dark Heart of Uukrul
Disciples of Steel
Ultima Underworld: The Stygian Abyss
Ultima Underworld II: Labyrinth of Worlds
Betrayal at Krondor
Nahlakh
Natuk
Diablo
Diablo II
Fallout
Fallout 2
Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn
Icewind Dale
