    You need reading glasses. Lords of Xulima was #25. You are correct that Might and Magic X din't make the cut.

    Storyfags, storyfags everywhere, duh. Remember that PS:T is our #1 of all time, above any turn-based combat/gameplay-focused games, too. So this isn't really surprising for the Codex, even leaving aside the fact of potato infestation or any difference in actual quality between PST and W3.

    In fact, AoD's 2nd place may also be partially explained by its storyfag qualities (you can play it as a non-combat game + it has some pretty memorable scenarios and characters).

    No more or less than the rest of the poll.

    Also, it shows that amongst those who actually played all of the three games, AoD and Underrail seem to be equally popular, and W3 above the two (albeit I haven't done individual differences). I could perform some median/distribution test to see if there's a statistically significant difference between these three items, but I suspect I wouldn't find any.

    EDIT: And of course what I said is not true, actually AoD and W3 are equally popular, and UR slightly more liked, check the post later on.

    So fucking what if Poles played AoD and Underrail? You still don't get it do you? Shit votes just don't become monocled by playing other games.

    For all the coverage PoE and InExile get there's like 10 games above them that I'm barely familiar with.

    The source of the games bit was the most interesting, as someone partial to AA Western releases its interesting to see how the scene has changed.
    On that note, which of the top25 (besides W3) is closest to
    A)a Gothic-like
    B)a storyfag that doesn't get too caught up in its mechanics or being unconventional (AoD)?

    If you think I care which game gets the 1st position, you're mistaken. I am more interested if any systematic voting behavior amongst the voters can be detected, the easiest way to start is to compare the votes of those who ranked a few of the same games. I didn't get around to do anything else than a simple average so far. These polls tell less about the quality of the objects being ranked than about those doing the ranking.

    Also, I don't understand why these results bring about such strong emotions in you, is that a third world thing?

    So, the games closer to the left are worse and closer to the right are better?

    Didn't downvote anyone, just wanted to get results.

    Because it has, well, you know, like - bad gameplay?
    Witcher 3 played those who preferred story, not gameplay.
    I prefer gameplay because looks like we can't get great story in AAA, and in indie great stories doesn't have great budget to tell that great story really, well... great.
    That's why I played Underrail and Elona+ last week, and overall in last few years I prefer roguelikes more.

    Also the trick in the poll - many no-RPG were included, like clearly-no-RPG like Xenonauts, to Witcher 3 who is at best action-RPG, but with killed exploration and level-based fights.
    I wonder what could happend if things like Battlefield and Dota 2 were included.

    A popamole at the top?

    Edit. On a more serious note, your analysis is shit, because you just don't remove causality. A lot of pseudo scientists do shit like that and then brag that it's representative, while it actually isn't. You still don't get it...

    Funny, there are 10 games "better" than PoE that I haven't even heard of. This is great, tons of fun still to be had! :M

    Just lol at Hong Kong & Grimrocks being so high.

    Tyranny and Banner Saga being that low surprised me.

    So much butthurt because of the simple fact that Twitcher 3 is a great game :positive:Go back to your monocle Dark Souls that can't even be played without a fucking console-thingie, or Pillars of Mediocrity, with so deep story that you will literally fall asleep when reading that bland copy-pasted bullshit.

    Causality? In a poll? What I did was descriptive analysis, which by definition cannot be causal. This poll is not representative, there's a strong self-selection. Please point out where I said it's representative (and of what?).

    I think you assume I'm claiming to do something more than I am actually doing.

    PoE and W2 got bombed by the haters of course.

    Indie games got much less attention, so much less hate too.

    W3 at the top probably means that noone cares that much either way.

    That's not good enough, I can only assume you do not know what you are talking about or just trolling.
    Pleas answer the following questions:

    1) What kind of causality can be detected in a poll that is done without any control, no pretest or post-test measurements, like performing polling before a Josh Sawyer interview and another thereafter.
    2) Where did I say this poll would be representative of anything given its endogenous nature
    3) What would be excactly wrong in restricting analysis to a subsample of voters, if one is interested in their voting behavior in particular

    ALSO: If you are livid because of the bloating of W3 average by the poles, why don't you provide a list of them, and it's easy to check the results after excluding them.

    1. So I ask you this: how can you analyze anything it and get meaningfull results without any serious measurements? Besides like JS interview or similar events would change the poll results.
    2. Your playing with numbers like they mean something, while actually you just wanted Scrooge, Bee and others to get wet because of the size of your "statistical penis".
    3. Nothing it's that it's just meaningless, don't pretend that it isn't. This common board room garbage. Peeps analyze shit, without understanding it and then draw conclusions that are as good as the numbers themselves.

    You think I keep records of polish residents in codex?
