    I have no interest in this series. Besides, not like it needs any MORE attention from this brand. ;p



  • @parasitepaladin You are a parasite to us all.

    Persona 5, I salute you for being amazing. RIP.

    Way too much Japanese weirdness. Would rather play everything else still alive here.

    Couldn't get into, despite several attempts.

    Less good game of the list, I feel like the top 5 of this list all kinda deserves to win, so yeah..



  • Divinity: Original Sin
    Red Dead Redemption
    Horizon Zero Dawn

    I don't want the finale to be two (great) open world games, so one had to go, and Horizon hasn't warmed up on me the way Read dead has. Also, Divinity: Original Sin is amazing game, so I don't feel at all bad letting it slide because it's not open world game, and deserves it's place in finals.



  • Damn, this is a great final 2.



  • @alexwhiteplays Now THAT is a reason to kill a game. Don't see paragraphs in these at all. Really interesting read!

    We have our final two, and if I don't so say myself, I believe this may be one of the stronger finals we've ever had as both of these games have made MANY deep runs in other threads before being stricken. But now, after great trials, it's time for one to finally, FINALLY taste glory. So which should it be?

    Divinity: Original Sin
    Red Dead Redemption

  • Well.... I am pleasantly surprised that Persona 5 survived as long as it did.

    I always enjoy seeing the final two include a game I adore. So RDR it is! Is it terrible to say I think it's much better than GTA? Of course I realize that's mostly due to preferring the setting and characters. I'd rather be a (mostly) good guy cowboy than a bad guy criminal.



  • I unfairly judge Divinity for not giving me enough aesthetic options in character creation and just generally not being as good of a "DnD sim" as I wanted it to be. I also don't like how OP stealing is. I'm neutral good, and my characters typically wouldn't steal, but the game is so stingy with gold in the early going (and stealing is SO EASY) that it practically begs you to turn into a thief... My vote goes to Read Dead. That game is near flawless. Both are great games, though, which is a small victory considering how many of these KyBs go.

    It's the only MGS I can't bring myself to finish. I find it such a disappointing way for the series to end.

    Don't feel too bad about it, even Kojima hasn't finished it. ;)



  • After a too-prolonged extension to the poll, the vote is called!

    In an almost no-contest by way of 12-4, the 2010s defining game is...

    Red Dead Redemption!

    Thank you everyone for your votes, posts, and kills!
