When you say "first", do you mean Divine Divinity or Divinity: Original Sin?

While I love Wasteland 2 (huge og fallout throwback), inxile's games currently feel very unpolished. Technically also has one released game in the last few years (Torment:tides).

Obsidian has Pillars and Tyranny but they also have the same-ish problem as inxile.

Larian has been making some pretty average games for awhile now (Dragon Commander is f***ing awesome though) but has finally gotten the formula right with Original Sin, especially the second one.

Since witcher 2, CDP's work has been pretty well made but it's just witcher and cyberpunk is still nowhere in sight.

Voting for Larian but I might be biased because they let me be an A10 dragon king that crowned a dead chick for a queen.

It's sad to see cdpr winning this poll as others have made incredible RPGs that knock Witcher 3 out the park.

I'm not even sure I classify the witcher 3 as an RPG. It's not much different than the batman arkham games other than that you get to make a few choices.

Uh, the Arkham games are basically metroidvanias, especially the first one. Witcher 3 is definitely an RPG.

The definition of an RPG has become completely subjective.

What about the witcher 3 makes it an "rpg" in your eyes.

It's classified as one, and that does it. Usually it's only "subjective" in the context of people attempting to get on a soapbox and bash a game. I don't know how people doing that don't realize how silly it looks, at least when it's a passionate "it's not a REAL RPG this is for the casuals!!!1111" type of rant. I will agree the definition itself has gotten blurred in modern games and "RPG elements" vs. outright RPG are used interchangeably much of the time. That's why I say the creators call it one and therefore that is what it is.

I had someone in high school try to say Resident Evil is an RPG...

Just so you know, Bearshrooms is a troll. I don't recommend giving him attention.
