The list was bad, but not for the reasons some of you think it was bad. I mean seriously, saying Mass Effect and its ilk are better than Fallout? For real?

Otherwise you might end up with the "good game that most people played" as a winner. A top 10 or top 5 would force people to choose the games they consider greats rather than just good.

25 is a fairly big number and many people would put some "filler" in their lists.
Nope there wasn't ranking. Which is why what you point out is exactly what happened. It became a list of decent games that everyone had played instead of a top RPG list. That, combined with the fact that most Codexers apparently hadn't played any pre-'97 games, pretty much made the whole affair pointless.
