Not right. There are members who posted more than once here.

Sure. So my voice counts hm… 7 times?
(Haven’t checked the actual amount of posts though, that’s lackblogger’s job I think )

Voted! I didn't think it too much, but it was pretty easy to pick up those those rpg games I've enjoyed playing most.

It will be quite intresting to see the results!

Hard choice. I loved Drakensang RoT, Skyrim, and Pathfiinder. I had to go with M&M X though. I was obsessed…

The last day of voting is getting nearer, after which a conclusion is made and results become available.

Then the fun part starts and we get to jump (virtually) on lackblogger because whatever algorithm he used didn't result in a list that matches the one we sent him

That's a nice interesting vote there Andrew.

You'd be amazed how many people are including some very popular games but also a game or two that has barely any popularity at all in the stakes of a GOTD.

From a psychology PoV I think this explains a lot how so many heated debates can occur even in communities that, in the main, generally tend to agree on most things and have generally a very homogenous taste.

How all of us can have moments where we feel isolated and alone even within our own community because suddenly one day we reveal to the world a great love for something that no-one else gives a shit about, and that naturally makes us feel odd in some way.

How can my taste be so different to yours? I thought I was fairly normal? Wait, it's not me, it's everyone else, they're all bonkers! And the scepticism finds an avenue to creep in, a tear in the fabric of our sense of community that makes us realise that, my God, They're All Assholes!

Even if it's just for those odd threads where Your Game is being ignored/shat on/fake newsed etc etc.

Having said all this, I am very happy to report that some games I wasn't expecting any votes for have indeed… not got any votes…

YET!

I know! Im also surprised that PoE2 made it to the list.

Unbelievable how TB mode managed to redeem it and how big difference it played at the end - in my eyes.

As for the other choices, Im sure everybody would love them … If they played them

No, really, about 5th spot I had to think quite for a while before choosing SMT, but Xenoblade was no-brainer for me. If I had to choose only one game, it would be really hard fight between X and P:K.

I'll re-alert all the others again tomorrow as that'll mark one week left.

Then I'll do a final alert run when there's just a day or two left.
Ill be posting and PM-ing my selections tonight or tomorrow.

I definitely don’t want to not be heard in a decade defining decision such as RPGWatch GOTD.

Sorry to be so late but I work better under pressure. I have my list but I pretty much picked it based on play time. Despite technology advance, I humbly believe there were better games released the 2 decades before. I lost years of time to Warcraft and Everquest, the Neverwinters, Baldurs Gates, etc. Maybe I just got old and stopped playing as much.

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Empyrion-Galactic Survival
Conan Exile
Dragon Age:Inquisition
Drakensang: The River of Time
Dead Island
Homefront the Revolution
Lord of the Rings:War in The North
Might and Magic X the Legacy
Tomb Raider

This is about the time that I start wondering when is it midnight in Tonga, so I looked and apparently the voting closes in a bit more than 19 hours from now.
That is at noon CET, 11AM GMT, 6 AM EST and 3 AM PST on February the 28th.

I've been thinking about the same thing. Should we do something about game of the decade for 1970's-2000's?

Also, for the first three years of this decade we also did an Indie Game of the Year. What's our Indy Game of the Decade?

Wait… The deadline is 28th not 29th?
Ouch. I might not be able to finish browsing through all 800+ titles…
