Default Best Modern/Current RPG Developer

February 1st, 2015, 16:01
It's a new month and a new week so here is the next poll. This time I selected a group of Modern Day RPG developers, and all you have to do is pick one.
So who is the Best Modern/Current RRG Developer?

Hint: I can only pick ten developers so don't ask me to add more as I can't.

I voted for Spiderweb Games. Avadon 2 was one of the best RPGs I've played recently, and the style of their games seem to be exactly what I'm looking for in RPGs.

Nah as I said I still would vote Obsidian but I think there will be more than few people who will want to vote CDPR.

I have to give it to CDProjekt. It would be a split between CDProjekt and Obsidian, but I think, just on TW2 alone, which I absolutely loved, I have to give it to them. And from what I've seen on TW3, it's even more obvious. I hope they won't disappoint too much with Witcher 3.

Larian Studios for me. They consistently make excellent CRPGs, to my tastes anyway.

I think I'll have to go with InXile. Their transparency is high, they believe in crowdfunding (believing also that backers should be catered to above and beyond what they paid for), and going by W2 I really have to admire the way they blend oldschool sensibilities with modern design. Their campaign updates are always informative and to the point. They also have two games in the making I have very high hopes for. Fargo himself is a more agreeable and less hyperbolic figurehead than, say, Garriot.

edit: btw… what about Golden Era Games?

Why is Blizzard on this list? They've never made an RPG. And where is PB?

No as I stated the poll is for Modern Day RPG developers in the first post.

To hard to vote for just one, there are at least three I would vote for right now.

CD, PB and LS.

Though it is really hard as most of the Developers have games I have liked and didn't like.

Out of the list above, Spiderweb and Larian win for me. A couple others would win honourable mentions.

Had to go with Piranha Bytes, but Larian and Spiderweb would have been very close second and third place.

I have enjoyed games from all of the above in the poll, so hard to pick a single best developer.

For me all of them, since they all produce(d) excellent rpgs. If need to put them in order, then my preference is:

1. Obsidian
2. CD Projekt
3. PB
4. Larian
5. Spiderweb
6. Bioware
7. Spiders
8. Bethesda

Daedalic is famous for adventure games and they have ventured into RPG games just recently. That's a really good poll, but limiting it to only 10 companies (due to software limitations I suppose) will make heaps of people complain - every gamer has some love for obscure/small/indie/long forgotten developer.

Yes the polls are very limiting as I can only pick ten options at most. The other problem is you can only allow voters to pick one choice, or all of the choices.

So this limits the type of polls I can post, but thats usual for VB forum polls.

Not by a mile, and partly influenced by the selection of games I've played, my choice as well.

pibbur who for the record also belongs to the few who finished (and actually enjoyed) the MM that should not be mentioned (*looking at the fatknacker* no, it's not MM X).
