    2015: Age of Decadence
    2016: Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen

    Although Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is really a 2013 PS3 game, which would leave 2016 without a clear winner. I suppose I would then give 2016's best RPG to Stranger in Sword City (a competent but not spectacular Wizardry-like), best SRPG to Dungeon Rats, and best computerized gamebook to Warlock of Firetop Mountain, but there are several potentially good 2016 RPGs I haven't yet played. I also have yet to play 2015's The Witcher 3, which was the Codex's 3rd best RPG of that year, and the best among old-timer Codexians.

    Unfinshed? - That is bullshit. Ara Fell is a 30 hour game that tells a believable story with many side quests, never gets boring and is really fun. The boss fights are challenging. But it seems that indie games get more criticized on the Codex these days or are ignored completely.

    Analyzing it shouldn't take long - by the 5th or 6th of Feb I should be done.

    However, then we have to write a post to present the data, probably with some artwork, staff comments, etc... and that I honestly can't tell ya how long will take. :/

    But sure, we can do a show about it. Just don't roast me for not releasing the new CRPG Book preview yet. :shittydog:

    Not really - the way it looks, the level of detail that went into the environments, is actually the best thing about the game. Everything else is mediocre at best.

    Ok if you think of it give me as much heads up as you can when the post is going live and we'll get you on the show. I want to time it as close to the post going live as possible.

    It's functionally pretty similar to Diablo-like and it has way more roleplaying elements than Diablo 3.

    Damn, not a lot of Games that I played in this Timeframe... I bought and started a lot of the "Incline-Games" but I could only get into maybe three or four of them, the rest just where no fun, even if I could see their qualities, I just couldn't enjoy them... :(

    It's nice to see a robust anonymous poll with a high-energy analytics team in charge of collating the data.

    I haven't even heard of most of the games in this poll, so I'm looking forward to playing the gems I missed.

    This is why the Codex is great.

    I'm very interested to see the results for the last 2-3 years. Apparently I've missed a shitload of less known games. Out of the ones I actually played, I only have 5 points for witcher 3. It's only flaws are simplistic combat and badly balanced crafting. But good writing, fun system of buffs and excellent environments more than make up for that.

    Age of Decadence and Legends of Eisenwald were pretty close, but it would have been silly to give 5 points to games I didn't even finish.

    As someone with a huge backlog I'm glad to realize how skippable 2013 was.

    Why are "didn't play" and "sucks" mutually exclusive? We are not neofag peons, we don't play games because we know they suck.

    Tried to vote, but quickly lost my way among all the action trash, jrpg trash, adventure trash and other trash. Can we have a bullet point list of actual by the book CRPGs to vote for? Disregard that, just give them all a 4 on my behalf for not being completely gay.

    It's the best system there is to vote. Voting against the system is no different than me saying

    "5 points to Skyrim, 5 points to Obliivion, 5 points to Fallout 3, 5 points to Fallout 4".

    RPG, for me, is about a knight on horseback running around and killing things.

    It's a game where most part is playing as self created or well desricptioned character, it must have also possibility to progress your character/level up, have inventory and items player can gather and equip, have money or other currency, it'd be also good if game has story in which player can participate and make choices. That's the core I suppose.

    Path of Exile
    Rance
    Invisible Inc.
    Darkest Dungeon
    Shadowrun: Dragon's Whatever It's Called (the one set in Berlin)


    That was like, honestly it. Everything else I gave a 3 or lower.

    I was generous with giving DE:HD a 4, because I want more Deus. Lords of Xulima, Age of Decadence, and some other titles I really wanted to give a 4, but if I didn't even make it through it to the end, I just couldn't.
