    What is being done to counter the fact that more niche games are played by fewer people, but they are played by people who enjoy that type of game and will be likely to rate them higher?

    Hi!

    gosh some great memories flooding back from a year ago just around this time when there was that voting list of games so here we are again in a new year with new games to vote on! But this year for me I only played one of the games on the new list and I voted honestly on what I thought of it but good luck to all other entries and a big thanks to felipepepe for working so hard on the list and making it possible. :hug:

    Still love seeing that old chart with Pillars up on top! Here is to the new crown for 2017! [​IMG]

    Thanks,
    Sherry

    7 is overkill. I usually use 5, but a lot of people just vote "3" on everything, so I removed the middle option to see how things change.

    I asked DU if we could use the Codexers-only system again, you can probably guess his reply...

    Google Forms has some protections against spamming and it's easy to spot the obvious trolls... that's usually enough.

    Mankind Devided, Dungeon Rats, Dishonored 2, Tyranny, Stardew Valley? That lineup absolutely shits over 2017 and I'm probably missing something.

    Not interested in any of those except Tyranny, but only to compare/contrast it with Tides of Numenera. Most folks here weren't interested in any of 'em.

    2017 had the trinity of ELEX!, Grimoire, and D:OS2. Lot of people loved those as can be seen in the old-fashioned poll.

    Turn-based diablo, Cleve's brainfart with pixels so big they poke your eyes out and Piranha's latest masterpiece, the same as their last 5 previous masterpieces and sucking for exactly the same reason. I think I had more hours in Andromeda than in all of these 3 combined, and I gave up on Andromeda about 3 hours in.

    Geez, I only played like 4 of these. Absolutely nothing on the 2nd or 3rd pages. Am I a bad person?

    EDIT: Wait, I mean am I a bad person for that reason?

    I remember the year when Shadowrun: Dragonfall was released there was this really entertaining read comparing the votes between Codexers and several writers.
    Can't find other posts like it. Was that the only year it's done?

    Yeah, pretty much the same for me as well. I played and voted just like 5 or 6 games in the first page, and then nothing on the next ones.
    Hopefully next year will be better.
