    I got half way through one last year but had to abandon it when Fallout 2 scored higher than Fallout 1 combined with edgelords who've never played Hordes of the Underdark bombing its score because they're still buthurt over the NWN OC after over 15 years.

    Depends on the voting system. If it's the same "you have 25 points to distribute", I can see the AoD cult getting it there.

    Please, let's do it now. When the 5th anniversary comes up, we will gift ourselves the list with the reviews.

    If you dont agree with me, at least lets start discussing about the methods of voting.

    I'm not sure if the new poll will change much at the top end of the poll. The results of my polling at the end of last year, which ended up covering the years 1995-2013, gave the following top 50:

    1. Fallout 2 (226 pts)
    2. Planescape: Torment (222 pts)
    3. Fallout (217 pts)
    4. Gothic 2 (194 pts)
    4. Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines (194 pts)
    6. Arcanum (193 pts)
    6. Deus Ex (193 pts)
    8. Jagged Alliance 2 (181 pts)
    9. Baldur's Gate (172 pts)
    10. Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer (168 pts)

    11. Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn (164 pts)
    12. Gothic 1 (155 pts)
    13. The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind (149 pts)
    14. The Witcher (143 pts)
    15. Arx Fatalis (140 pts)
    16. System Shock 2 (139 pts)
    17. The Temple of Elemental Evil (138 pts)
    18. Wizardry 8 (134 pts)
    19. Might & Magic 7: For Blood & Honor (128 pts)

    21. Might & Magic 6: The Mandate of Heaven (123 pts)
    22. Divine Divinity (122 pts)
    23. Knights of the Chalice (120 pts)
    24. Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast (114 pts)
    25. Icewind Dale 2 (112 pts)
    26. Baldur's Gate 2: The Throne of Bhaal (110 pts)
    27. Gothic 2: Night of the Raven (101 pts)
    28. The Elder Scrolls 2: Daggerfall (100 pts)
    29. Anachronox (98 pts)
    30. Diablo (97 pts)

    31. Realms of Arkania: Shadows Over Riva (93 pts)
    32. Neverwinter Nights 2 (89 pts)
    33. Icewind Dale: Heart of Winter (88 pts)
    34. Albion (86 pts)
    35. Mount & Blade: Warband (84 pts)
    36. Mount & Blade (78 pts)
    37. Expeditions: Conquistador (67 pts)
    38. Drakensang: The River of Time (66 pts)
    39. Shadowrun Returns: Dead Man's Switch (63 pts)
    40. Geneforge (62 pts)

    41. Neverwinter Nights 2: Storm of Zehir (59 pts)
    42. Dark Messiah of Might & Magic (58 pts)
    43. Icewind Dale: Trials of the Luremaster (55 pts)
    44. Diablo 2 (54 pts)
    45. Silent Storm (53 pts)
    46. Neverwinter Nights (49 pts)
    47. Vampire: The Masquerade: Redemption (47 pts)
    48. Legend of Grimrock (45 pts)
    49. Neverwinter Nights: Vault of Games (39 pts)
    49. King's Bounty: The Legend (39 pts)


    Bonus:

    Top 5 most hated games:

    1. Dungeon Siege (-60 pts)
    2. Torchlight (-50 pts)
    3. Risen 2 (-43 pts)
    4. Dungeon Siege 2 (-38 pts)
    5. Lionheart (-36 pts)

    Years of zero qualifying games (games with less than 35 people who have played them):

    2005
    2011

    All other years had at least 1 top 50 game.

    Most of which is all a load of complete bollocks IMO. It was certainly something which made me learn how King Komrade is always the correct voting option on the codex ;) so some good came of it.

    Great list, but I want to know if some games from the age of incline will appear. I want to know if great games such as AoD, Underrail, D:OS 2, Blackguards, Xulima, Xenonauts, Invisible Inc, Conquistador, Dragonfall etc will made their way in to the final list. These are great rpgs that should be remembered, IMO.

    Btw, can you provide to me the link to the thread in which you made the voting, IncendiaryDevice?

    Oh yes, they'll all get a place, there's plenty of stuff in that top 50 that isn't the usual codex fawning material. BTW, Conquistador is on the above list already, though don't expect too much from those kinds of titles, they have a small niche of fans, but they're not on the same level of rabid as some of the other games you mentioned. I'll do a quick guess for you on the titles you mentioned:

    AoD: 11-20
    Underrail: 11-20
    D:OS 2: 15-25
    Blackguards: 35-45
    Xulima: 35-45
    Conquistador: 40-50
    Dragonffall: 30-40
    Invisible Inc: Not an RPG

    One simple way to do the poll is taking the previous Top 50 list from this thread and add the Top 10's from GOTY 2014-2017 in the poll.

    That would be a list with 90 games. Everyone should get probably around 25 or 30 votes.

    I proposed a graduated system where you get more points if you rate more games. That seems to be the most fair.

    I propose what I think is a fair system where people with longest nicks get the most points to distribute.

    I'm surprised by all the Torchlight hate in your poll, IncendiaryDevice. It's a simplistic, casual Diablo clone, and all in all is pretty unremarkable. It definitely doesn't deserve hatred, however, like a Dungeon Siege or a Risen 2. If anything that didn't show up on your poll deserves hate, it would be an Ultima IX or a Fable before Torchlight.

    Mano, considere fazer um canal no YT para criar matérias e zueiras sobre rpgs. Você é carismático, porra. Você teria muitos fãs. E eu acho que você tem espaço, inclusive, no mercado brasileiro. Abraço sincero e Boa Sorte na caminhada. E ficou muito engraçado esse video que você fez com o Totoró, hahahahahl. Vlw.

    Or maybe it's because HOTU wasn't good either? You seem to really enjoy these mediocre dungeon crawlers and bitch about anyone else who doesn't lol.

    That kind of startled me as well. I wouldn't call Torchlight particularly good (kind of boring even for a hack-and-slash ARPG) but it wasn't hateworthy by any means.

    Erm… the OC of NWN1 is on the list... literally no-one thinks HotU is worse than the OC, it's just that less people played it because they played the OC and then quit the series... but those people still shat on HotU. But sure, just take the opportunity to shitpost at me, that's what it's all about, right...

    I'm shitposting you because every single time I see you posting somewhere it's you crying about something or whining that people don't love mediocre dungeon crawlers.

    We should move all of the "x with rpg elements" and rpg-adjacent games to a seperate poll.

    For example:
    Diablo
    Diablo 2
    Pillars of Eternity
    Jagged Alliance 2
    Star Control 2
    Invisible Inc
    Assassin's Creed Origins
    Alpha Protocol
    Nier: Automata
    Heroes of Might and Magic III
    Crusader Kings 2
    King of Dragon Pass
    Adventure games like Grim Fandango
    SMAC
    Frostpunk
    Mass Effect
    Sengoku Rance
    Path of Exile
    Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara
    Dark Souls
    Genghis Khan
    Uncharted Waters 2: New Horizons
    Sid Meier's Pirates!
    Ultimate General: Civil War

    Damn~ I thought 2019 would make a nice year to restart this shit again.

    But Cyberpunk wont make it. FF7 Remake wont make it. It's also doubtful Kingmaker will be released in time~

    FF7? WTF was joining this site a mistake? Its a fun game for what it is but its basically just watching movies and random battles.

    Also, like the other guy said some sort of system where people who have played more games get more votes somehow would seem to be a good idea on the surface. Gotta find a way to keep all the decline closet popamole newfags like myself down! Tough to do anything in a way that wouldn't be gamed, though.

    This site is populated by like conspiracy theorists, reactionaries, weebs, manbabies, radical centrists, a couple of tankies maybe, and a Cleve. The reactionaries usually have a sense of humor at least. The conspiracy theorists are fun to laugh at. The Cleve is basically a tiny Donald Trump who made video games great again. The weebs should be purged though. If you can't tolerate any of those it's probably not worth it. You can find opinionated nerds basically anywhere.
