    Do we know the average age of the active Codexian? I think we are seeing a little bit of Codex demographics at work.

    @felipepe has done a great service. May the Codex tits and ass threads always bring him happiness.

    :hero:



    Oh, and Darklands beat the KOTOR games. Not bad for an older game poorly marketed.

    I'm sure people like to believe that, but the combat in Bloodlines was so awful that it should have been automatically disqualified from the top fifty.

    The per-year graph IS of all 223 games.

    I think DU posted this some time ago, the average Codexer is 25-30 IIRC.

    I'm one of the biggest Obsidian fanboys in this galaxy but seeing Alpha Protocol on a list of best anythings still makes me cringe.

    That said the list looks solid otherwise. My favorite games are all represented (DX, Morrowind, New Vegas, FO1 and FO2) and some new shit I threw a couple points at even got ranked or a mention (DXHR, Witcher 2).

    Where is Borderlands 2? CENSORSHIP!

    Also fuck you all for DM not being in the TOP 50.

    Honestly, I can't really think of any area in which AP is worse than Bloodlines.

    btw Star Control 2 isn't an RPG.

    Poocolator changed his vote, so Borderlands 2 only had your 5 points.

    New Vegas, Gothic 2, Jagged Alliance 2, all lower than Morrowind. :lol:

    Gothic 1 lower than The Witcher and BG1. :hahano:

    Art style, agency, plot. You can really get your walk and talk on in Bloodlines, in AP the walking's right out and talking happens in missions, and though it has far more narrative reactivity, you (or at least I) don't feel as if you have as much control over it (on account of the lack of walking)

    Your point? Morrowind is the best game EVAR. If you think otherwise, you probably couldn't find Caius Cosades.

    Daggerfall lower than Morrowind. In fact, Daggerfall lower than Dragon Age.

    Move Morrowind to third place, remove Dragon Age from the list and replace it with ROA 3. Swap Bloodlines and Divine Divinity. Give The Secret World a pity place in the list of also-rans.

    Alpha Protocol:

    Show Spoiler
    Suffering from troubled development, interminable delays and unpolished controls, Alpha Protocol rated mediocre and sold terribly. At the same time, this is a game which features unparalleled reactivity and nonlinearity, Obsidian's trademark writing, and a gameplay experience that is certainly distinctive. This is a game where you don't just choose from two factions, but choose relations with every character, which has knock-on consequences for the relations between those characters over the course of the story, right up to who you rescue, who helps you, who betrays you, who shoots your nemesis in the face and who rides with you into the sunset. This is a game where those characters' stories and motivations are layered in such a way that you can play several times and never find out their 'big secret'. This is a game where you can raise a false alarm, have the guards run in, blow themselves up on mines you attached to the wall, just before you lob a flame grenade under a truck and the resulting conflagration swallows the rest. This is a game where you can slam a Russian informant's face into the bar table for not cooperating, where your crazy buddy in Hong Kong backs you up with a drive-by machine gun on a subway, and where you can verbally dismantle a man's principles that have defined him for the last thirty years, while dodging his bullets inside a Roman gallery. There are better RPGs than Alpha Protocol, as the list demonstrates; but few of them can deliver the things Alpha Protocol does. That's why you need to play it. Right now. After all, they're selling it for about three cents and half a potato these days.

    It's a good game but it's not the best of anything. I just dislike such a flawed game being on a BEST ALL TIME thing.

    I don't really care though.

    I still can't really understand how a really mediocre game such as Dragon Age is even in the top 50, while games like UU2 are in the honorable mentions.

    The codex secretly loves Bioware and hates Larian, that's my takeaway from this list.

    Yeah, Skyrim should rightfully be in the top 70; hating it is just the hivey thing to do right now.
