    After reading yet another fucking retarded top whatever list from the main stream shit and bought out media I then realized while we have made a top 10 (or top 5 list) previously, I wanted to do a complete Top 50 cRPG list news post and post the results so here we go. THE RULES™ will be as follows:

    1. The game must have originally appeared on the PC, C64/C128, Amiga, Atari ST or any Apple computer when released (or if originally released on a console, and a PC version came out within 6 months that is fine to list).
    2. THIS thread is for votes only. I will allow some discussion but if it starts to completely derail, then it will be then split off into it's own thread. Simple.
    3. Make only ONE post with your list. When I collate the data and votes, if I see your name twice or more and a list of games, I will completely ignore it and all your votes. Simple. I would recommend you make a bookmark to your post if you want to change/edit it later. OR delete your original post and make a new one.
    3a. If you are unable to edit your post, TAG ME by using the @ and then my name Jaesun in a new post with your new list, and mention you want your other post removed.
    4. Retards and shitposter's votes will be ignored (we know who you are).
    5. THE ORDER DOES NOT MATTER. Just list your games.
    6. This poll will remain open until January 31st 2013 10:00 PST.
    7. YOUR VOTES MUST NOT CONTAIN NUMBERS OR ANY OTHER FORM OF GRAPHICS. Just list the name your favorite cRPG games and nothing more. If you put numbers your vote will be ignored. Only list the games name.
    8. List 25 games you consider a cRPG and are your favorites. If you list more than 25, all your votes will be ignored.
    9. You do NOT have to list 25. If you can only think of a list less than 25, that is fine.
    10. Failure to follow any of the above, all your votes will be ignored. Period.

    Exceptions:

    World of Xeen (MM4 (Clouds of Xeen) and MM5 (Darkside of Xeen) can be listed as 1 vote. IF you feel one of them is more worthy, then list that one games title only. This will be considred when I collate the votes.

    Gothic II and Night of the Raven: I will *assume* if you list Gothic II to include (Night of the Raven expansion: NOTR). If you feel NOTR is NOT worthy of a vote, then just list Gothic II NOT WITH NOTR if you feel strongly NOTR should not be considered.

    So get with it. What 25 cRPG's are your favorites?

    Great idea, and I liked having to list 25 names, it forces people out of the confort zone of the same top 5 shared by 90% of the Codex. :salute: Will there be a mini-review of the titles on the final list, like we had on the Top 5 of the Decade? I liked that a lot.

    Fallout 1
    Fallout 2
    Arcanum
    Jagged Alliance 2
    Mount & Blade: Warband
    Knights of the Chalice
    Baldur's Gate II
    Divine Divinity
    Betrayal at Krondor
    System Shock 2
    Diablo 2
    KoToR 2
    Temple of Elemental Evil
    Magic The Gathering: Shandalar*
    World of Warcraft
    The Battle for Wesnoth
    Lands of Lore 1
    Skyrim
    Wizardry 7

    *Thank you, Grunker, I even reinstalled it.

    I upped it to 25 names. I just DO want a good pool of games. I think a threshold of 25 will work good.

    I'm going to make an executive decision (and thanks for pointing that out), I will consider Clouds/Sword of Xeen as 1 game (World of Xeen) So that frees up 1 vote. So if you like both, vote World of Xeen. If you feel strongly that one or the other is NOT worthy of your vote, then specific that exact games name (Sword or Clouds). I will keep that into consideration when I collate the votes.

    Lurkerfag contribution - since it's just PC RPGs, then:

    Arcanum
    Diablo
    Diablo 2
    Drakensang: The River of Time
    Divine Divinity
    Fallout
    Fallout 2
    Planescape: Torment
    The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind
    The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
    Neverwinter Nights
    Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines
    Dragon Age: Origins
    Betrayal at Krondor
    Baldur's Gate 2
    Icewind Dale

    There are some cases that I'm not really sure if qualify here. I played more than 100 hours of Neverwinter Nights, but only 10 of them (maybe less, since I didn't even finish the main game I think) in the 'real' game. All the rest was in modules. Played a lot of Morrowind too, but fully modded. Never played Fallout 2 without Killap's patchs... And so on.

    Jaesun: Can you expand a bit on the first rule please? What if a game came out on another home computer like an Apple II first? I think my list may suffer quite badly if this rule is as strict as it sounds.
