Well as you noticed these games were voted by the players. So at least a number of people here seem to have played DS3 and DD, neither of which I voted for. I also think that these titles did so well is less reflective of newfound love of jrpgs, as the rather poor quality of western rpgs this year. I don't think that Tyranny will be remembered as a classic, Grim Dawn is a very well done hack & slay, but many people hardly consider it a crpg. And that's the problem. There were plenty of decent rpgs this year, but few anyone would call exceptional.
