60% of voters played it, more than any other except for massive hit Divinity 2:

Rating is not so good, but it's really been played by a lot of people.

More people played Torment than Prey or Mass Effect :o :o :shock: :shock:

Maybe it sold well on consoles? Or Steamspy numbers are wrong? Anyway good news for a sequel :D

Not terribly surprising considering the source. The Codex has a higher than standard percentage of grognards, therefore you're more likely to have a higher percentage of Codex members who would play something like Torment as opposed to something like Prey or Mass Effect Andromeda (which had a whole slew of behind-the-scenes... issues).

I mean, learning that 80% of respondents got black-out drunk last night. Shocking if surveying an entire city, less so if surveying a fraternity.

Frankly, I'm more surprised at Destiny 2 being first than Torment being second. Although, there were a lot of giveaways for Destiny 2. Friend of mine got a free copy for buying a new video card.

This game might be the Batman v Superman of RPGs = a lot of people played it, almost no one liked it.

But sure, critical approval is what matters most and should be celebrated, amirite?

*Divinity: Original Sin 2. Makes a little more sense. :)

Cough. Okay, yeah, makes a lot more sense. I can see why that would top the chart. The rest of my statements stand.

I assume this is some kind of insult.

When I first read it, I assumed (and still do) that it was an earnest question about an old RPG-Codex account—with the name Bubbles.

I looked, and there is (or was) one.

Perhaps, but "X, is that you" is rarely used as an honest question.

On the off chance that it was, no, I am not "Bubbles". I have never had an RPGCodex account and nor do I ever intend to do so.

There are others here with accounts from there. It's not wholly impossible that it was intended as an inside joke, rather than an insult... for those who would get the name reference; perhaps meaning for you as well—if you had an account there. (Only one person really knows.)

I did not get the reference (I'd never heard of Bubbles), I just saw the name of the poster, and presumed the rest. With no avatar set, one can't really know if it's the same Infinitron from the Codex; but it's not a bad guess, I think.

I got (and enjoyed) the joke :lol: and I promise it wasn't a crack at you, Drool.

Insert joke about the Codex actually playing all the games they supposedly hate.

I imagine that most of the Codex had previously backed Torment already. And Mass Effect: Andromeda has a demo, so there's an explanation for that one too.

Still amusing though. :P
