RPGDot finally gets to the friggin' point: Gothic II wins

RPGDot's awards dealie has come to its logical conclusion: the winner for Best RPG of 2003 was announced today and Gothic II took the prize. Knights of the Old Republic was a close second and Temple of Elemental Evil a distant third.
With the popularity of the Gothic series among RPGDot regulars it didn't really come as a surprise that 'Gothic II', the successor of 'Gothic' by developers Piranha Bytes, was voted the best RPG of 2003. Despite some residual bugs, the excellent combination of a gripping atmosphere with unique NPCs, full voice-acting and a living, breathing world earned the game which topped German sales charts for quite some time) its well-deserved place at the top.
A proud day for the Fatherland, I'm sure. The RPGDot awards are notable, though, because it marks at least one Best RPG award that KOTOR didn't win.
