Decline A truly ignominious Codexian fact, and a question about how thread views are tallied

    Want to see something really funny?

    1. Go to General RPG Discussion.

    2. Click on the column name "Views" to sort threads by total number of views.

    3. Witness, in horror, what you, RPG Codex, have mostly been talking about, looking at, and thinking about.

    ---

    We were wondering, Infinitron, DarkUnderlord, Taluntain whether or not non-members' views of said threads count in their viewed statistics. Not that, if they were, this would make this sad fact any less embarrassing and shamefur, but it would blunt it somewhat, knowing only filthy outsiders were hiking up those numbers of views.

    What the hell have we become?

    Nothing shameful, its pillar eternity thread on top, the most hyped baldur's gate spiritual successor. We are on an obsidian fan site ,with dedicated staff paid to post every tidbit of news about it . Makes senses its the most viewed thread and the codex did an excellent job at advertising it.

    It's a sum of member, unregistered and bot page renders of a given thread. A very basic statistic that's not really useful for proving anything much beyond the obvious fact that threads with hundreds of thousands of pages will very likely have more views than those with dozens.

    That's only because Grimoire's pre-release thread has been retardo'd while the Pillars pre-release threads weren't. With 2.9 million views it was way above the Pillars threads.

    I mean, crowdfunded games just naturally generate more discussion because of how development process works.

    However, looking at
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    it's clear that all those views were just rubbernecking. Grimoire gets a mere 30%; meanwhile over half the Codex has played Pillars of Eternity, Divinity: Original Sins, Tides of Numenera, Wasteland 2, Witcher 3, and Mass Effect 3.

    Why are you mentioning Witcher 3 in the same sentence as boring fake-oldschool trash? Witcher 3 neither tried to recapture the glory days of 90s RPGs, nor is a bad game by any objective measure (combat is a bit wobbly, and too many quests end with the shocking twist of the monster being an innocent snowflake persecuted by evil hoomanz, I guess Project Rekt is a bunch of closet-libtards)

    I love new tags: let me repeat: Grimoire is a hobo looking for a 3/4 smoked butt to toke just let out of the county drunk tank and showing up at that one old dive-bar where they still give away home-made chili-dogs for free on Wednesdays.....King of Fighters III still chugging along in the corner.

    I say we make thread "Your favourite rpg" put a few token old games and PoE and DD,then DU bans all of their fangoys or locks then only in those games threads. Too many non rpgs fans here,a purge is needed.

    I think he specifically asked for it.

    Or I wanted to give it to him.

    You idiot.

    I got this tag fair-and-square by standing there and letting Menckenstein repeatedly frag me while I attempted to make excuses for myself in chat.
