    The Total points column which is Average Score x number of votes makes a lot more sense to me. Everything else is just bullshitting...

    You know what a joke is, you defending Elex as the second coming of Jesus Christ and somehow you still have the audacity to call PoE and Dos 2 shit games, have some integrity and stop sucking Bjorns cock, you aint looking pretty with those chapped lips.

    So Torment: Tides of Numenera is the #3 just because A LOT of people gave it 1/4s and 2/4s?

    Every fucking encounter in Expeditions is the same. There are like two different mobs and that’s it, over and over and over, aside from a couple interesting fights like the beach landing in Northumbria. Once you figure out the right strategy, you just keep doing the same thing nearly every fight. I didn’t dislike Expeditions but the encounter design was terrible.

    There’s not much variety in Elex, but yeah, more than in Expeditions. And shitty encounter design sucks more in a turn based game because it takes forever to play out, even as you don’t need to do any thinking.

    Haters just have a longer breath and people who enjoy their stuff don't care to engage them and move on with their lives.

    I really enjoyed PoE and I have barely posted about it while some people still shitpost whole books worth of posts about how much it sucked several years after its release. Is it autism?

    I reckon plenty of people who enjoy DOS2 would rather spend their time playing something they enjoy than hopelessly attempting to break some meming circlejerk.

    omg posting seems so pointless now what am i doing with my life

    Tides of Numenera got screwed by the move to 1-4. Considering that 2/4 got the most votes, I believe a lot of people would have ordinarily voted it 3/5 but couldn't, and 3/4 pushed it too far into positive. :M

    You are wrong mate. Most Codexer are storyfags and most old codexers are Troika/Black Isle fanboys (also storyfags). That's why actual fucking rpg like Deus Ex, Star Trail and Underworld are not in the top 10 and instead nteractive visual novel shit like Arcanum and PST are.

    That said my list would be:
    -Divinity Original Sin 2
    -Grimoire
    -Nioh

    Very surprised Battle Brothers got such a high rating after that bullshit they pulled.

    Yet Wizardry 8 is on our Top 10 and Wizardry VII is #15.
    The Codex enjoys Wizardry-like games, I'm sure Grimoire would've performed better if only Cleve had released the manual and actually finished the game. :M

    So I see - this DOS2 is a bright blue supergiant - Polaris I assume, ELEX is a solid blue giant, and what I see - Torment: Tides of Numenera is a tiny yellow dwarf, but... what is this? I can't see anything! turned out Mass Effect Andromeda is a fucking black hole!

    I already got used to it from last poll in 2017 - I remember there were games like Xenonauts. :prosper:

    I'm not sure I think ELEX should have won, but Divinity Original Sin 2 was my biggest disappointment 2017. Kinda hard to see it score a number one place.

    77 is not a low number. West of Loathing had 105 votes and SpellForce 3 had 125.

    Shoutout to West of Loathing as the only RPG that's actually a proper RPG that the Codex zeitgeist likes in the entire top 10???

    Elex fans acting like aggressive brain-dead zombies, who ignore flaws of their beloved game and spread disease of false propaganda. Game is fucking shit by many reasons. For me it was:
    -Weak character, despite being a fucking commander in most powerful fraction (I understand why character weak, but why the fuck he in charge, why devs not make him a novice soldier or something)
    -Stats is useless, zero reactivity
    -Weak enegry weapons, (it's fucking impossible for fauna to evolve in creatures which can stand a 100 shots from plasma riffle)
    -Game look and feels like MMO from early 2000s (except in 2000 there was interesting mmo and in some games animals attacked each other, not just player)
    -over9000 other reasons
    Any proof to backup such claim? I mean I love Deus Ex (first game) too, but calling Arcanum as visual novel it's like claim that first DoW was a first person shooter.
    Spellfforce 3 is not full RPG, it's strategy game with action RPG elements, although I liked game and it's better than fucking Elex.

    Tides of Numenera isn't in your Top Ten listed in the article...

    Giving each game a rating value is pretty much bullshit when you have to vote for the best game of the year.

    Read the spreadsheet, it has 1244 points which would put it in the Top 3 by your criteria.

    Such a terrible year(or years) for games of all genre, people keep blaming nostalgia for liking older games over these new cookie cutters but in the end we all know the real reason why is this happening, the new incoming devs just can't deliver in any department, be it gameplay, writing, story, or in the end they just don't give a shit. I keep seeing the people behind these games and all I see is pierced, rainbow dyed, fat motherfuckers that couldnt hold a conversation with a person to save their fucking lives. And let's stop blaming the budget behind these games, even with milions of dollars these games would still have the same sterile, hospital smell like they just got through a heart surgery.

    I am played and enjoyed it. And it's not THAT bad how some people claim. Yeah, issues with loot and bugs exist, but in general I liked it. And I am finished game. So what now?

    "My" criteria - which isn't actually mine - is referentcing to the top ten listed in the article. The article already made a distinction which I'm ok with. But using it as the only criteria is useless.
    You might as well give everybody 1 voice and ask him which game should be rpg of the year. This would be equally good without giving it some pretence of science or fairness.

    You could get better results by taking out every game that has a higher % of 1-2 ratings than 3-4 ratings. Just going by the numbers isn't really representative.
