    Technically, KR0 Episodes 1 + 2 (and Limits and Demonstrations) won last year. 2014 saw the release of The Entertainment, KR0 Episode 3, and Here and There Along the Echo. So they could totally give...

    Also, voice acting. There's a reason most indie titles are text-only.

    I never said it didn't include BG2 - that is very much the origin of this design (not, oddly, BG1). But it was first, it was 2000, and it felt fresh and new and different. It was also, frequently,...

    Thanks so much for this. I've had a lot of trouble getting answers about Inquisition's storytelling because most people (including myself!) don't really have the words to describe what these...

    It would be grossly unethical to use the money from a kickstarter to fund unrelated projects. People didn't put money towards Massive Chalice so it got be spent on another game.

    As for the...

    I certainly did! Inquisition is in there, now. As safe a bet as any, though there's a chance that no one else will get to it before voting (because voting is starting, like, now, right?).

    This isn't Youtube. If you're going to insult people, it at least behooves you to read the topic you're posting in so you have some context.

    As someone who has spent a lot of time studying these questions (which, of course, doesn't mean I'm Right), I would answer thus to this question:

    No, we have not regressed, yes, it has always been...

    Nope, that is definitely everyone. Way easier to get a read on 4 people who have been here for a long time than on 7-8 people, many of whom have never even voted on these. It's a crapshoot and I...

    Saying that Planetside 2 is only great if you're playing with 10+ people is sort of like saying Street Fighter is only great if you're playing it with someone else. It's largely true, but those are...

    We're all aware that Spacebase DF-9 was a thing, but I agree with shaydeeadi that it can be very frustrating when you are trying to discuss the actual content and people only want to discuss the...

    In a contest between Richard Cobbett and anyone on the Polygon staff, I pick Cobbett.

    One of the differences, here, is that Cobbet has a distinct interest in storytelling and and game writing....

    I'm pretty sure it would be a first. They've definitely featured expansion packs before, but I don't think they've ever done the same "series" of episodic games over multiple years. But there's a...

    It's in my "won't win" list, so I'm not sure what you mean by "unlikely." As for elitism - did you miss the fact that it got a glowing review, and that RPS commenters were lavishing it with surprised...

    Yes, there is the Titanic effect. I don't mean these games are bad or anything, but KR0 as the exception - RPS has a long history of choosing Major Titles for the big award, because everyone played...

    I am still agonizing over my list, but I'd like to say- last year, this was compartively easy. There were a ton of amazing games embraced by the hivemind, and there were...

    As much as they've tried, for market reasons, to make this accessible to newcomers - it is ultimately Dreamfall Part 2, and you are going to get a lot more out of it if you've played Dreamfall. And...
