The Obsidian Community all-time top 106 games (poll) - CLOSED! See new thread for results

Question: Could i mention more games than 25, but with 125p limit?

There are many games which deserve 1 point as honorable mention.

 

Unfortunately no, because your vote is worth more than the points themselves. The points act as tie-breaker between the games with equal amount of votes.

Sunless Sea

 

Wow. I forgot all about Sunless Sea. Talk about underrated, probably one of the better rpg's out there in terms of storyline.

Just what do you think you're doing?! You dare to come between me and my prey? Is it a habit of yours to scurry about, getting in the way and causing bother?

 

What are you still bothering me for? I'm a Knight. I'm not interested in your childish games. I need my rest.

 

Begone! Lest I draw my nail...

Yeah, Sunless Sea really surprised me. I approached it with trepidation, but it absolutely shines. Talk about a game that really hits you. Anything that can be that goofy, funny, strange, irritating, suspenseful, and sad at the same time simply must be on any list of top games. I doubt that it makes the end list, but it deserves to be.

 

This community list was an excellent idea. Algorth did a great job. In fact, giving us 25 games and 125 points forced me to give serious thought to which games were on the list and how to rank them. I'm sure my list doesn't perfectly reflect every factor. I'm sure it could be better. ...But I'm happy with my list and my rankings.

Unfortunately populaity trumps all. Mass popularity never meant quality, in this life or the next. Which is strange considering that most people think "It must be good because everyone likes it" but all evidence points to the contrary in terms of the gaming community. Edited by SonicMage117

​but you have left 4 dead 2 in there

 

 

If you play on nightmare it actually becomes unfun if all you do is lone wolf or **** around. It also had a better community early on.

Found it pretty difficult to do a top 25, though I did eventually. I could do a top 10 or a top 50 easily- top 10 are absolute favourites but I have a lot of tier 2 titles that I like a lot but aren't quite top 10. For interest's sake here's my top 50(!) I worked down from. I also made an executive decision to exclude Elex and Witcher 3 which I played very recently. They'd probably make it in a year but at the moment I don't have enough perspective on them.

 

BG2

PST

Fallout 1, 2 and New Vegas

IWD

NWN2 w/ MOTB

KOTOR2

Stalker SoC

Duke Nukem 3D

Elite (original 1984)

Wizardry PGotMO and 8

Mount and Blade and Privateer are good ones, I can't believe I forgot them.

I feel the same way about IWD (the original). There's just no way to create a list like this without forgetting something great. I'm happy with my list, but on any given day there would be some changes. The top five, however, are the top five in mine. I allocated 55 points to the top five and then tinkered very little with the rest of the distribution.

I can't name 25 games that I like. 

 

If you'd like, you can try to come up with as many as you can and split between them a total number of points equal to five per game you've mentioned. I'll be adding this as a possibility for those who can't name 25 games (though naming 25 would be optimal).
