I think you are on to something here. They also must have a hat for old games that made former lists but werenít drawn for the current list since some of their ďnew entriesĒ have been out for 5-10 years. Last year the Witcher 2 wasnít that good, but now itís #40.

Default Too old.

I guess I am too old if I see top RPGs and donít see a Wizardry, Bards Tale or Might and Magic game listed in the top 50. Yes, they havenít aged well with their graphics, but boy did I sink some hours into them. At least one Ultima is there.

I didn't study the list that much. Am I wrong? No Kingmaker, no Underrail, and no Wasteland 2? I can maybe overlook the fact that classics like Might and Magic 6 and Fallout 2 aren't on it. But some of the newer crap they put on the list and leave out the three games I mentioned.

If Darkest Dungeon is a crpg so is Civilization. If Darkest Dungeon made the list then Battle Brothers should be on the list also.

Wow, no Gothic (one of my top RPGs of all time… right now… and still playable).

And it wasn't even on their prior list.

Oh well, I say pushaw to those at rock, paper, scissor . . . oh did I misspell their name?. . . . huhh

My groundbreaking game from 4 decades ago which every game today is a clone of is not on this list. So they are idiots and that makes this list meaningless.

That is all

I played Wizardry 8 for the first time just a couple of years ago and certainly think it deserves to be on the list. The earlier ones and MM's I will admit might be hard to stomach by todays standards.

Agreed, except for Wasteland 2. And if Kenshi is on the list, which I think it deserves to be, then Crusader Kings 2 should be on it, too.
