        Ganker is full of normalfags everywhere dude. It's a social media site with fewer rules and relative anonymity. The same type of shit happens here as on reddit and facebook, except it's cruder and nastier. Yes there are more weirdos than average but everyone is using the internet these days and unless something is truly secret normalfags will be around. It's just the way it is.

              It's not that surprising honestly. Alot of people like morrowind. Just surprised skyrims not on there. I mean yeah it's fucking garbage, but it's still one of the most popular "rpg" ever to be made.

              Those retards at RPGCodex still genuinely think that Jagged Alliance 2 is an RPG. For that alone I cannot take them seriously.

              Jagged Alliance 2 is the best turn-based strategy game ever made. But the lengths that they go over there to justify that it is an RPG so they can talk about it is hilarious.

              Weird how I've played silent storm and omerta still haven't finished either), but not jagged alliance.
              Is there an open source port of jagged alliance like xcom? I hope so or atleast hope jagged alliance plays a lot better then og xcom.

              im not the sperg you're replying to. but it seems that elitism tends to be boomers and their offspring keeping certain games that were impressive and influential in their timeframe as the "top of their genre" despite their flaws. i mean, Darklands and other cRPGs like Wizardry/M&M are essentially minigame collections with combat/exploration/visual novel elements separated from each other in the actual game with little interaction between those minigames. but we are told these are the "peak" of the genre compared to modern games that basically tie most if not all elements together. it's like the morons who keep sperging out about Quake 3 despite it being a glorified aim trainer that easily surpassed the skill ceiling by stuff like Apex and Siege and ignoring its huge downsides (pillbox hitboxes, etc.).
