Hotcakes: The Most Popular Fantasy RPG Of 2021

When lies just become shameless.

For today’s Hotcakes article I decided to bring up a topic that’s something of a point of humor in my personal life. The endless fabrication by companies when discussing their products and how well received they are. I brought this up most recently when talking about T3Fun, and how the company has a lot of confidence to call itself the “#1 global game site” when the company’s history consists almost entirely of substandard failed import MMOs run on shoddy server infrastructure, overrun by cheats/bots, and barely maintained by corrupt, occasionally criminal employees.

T3Fun’s only two remaining titles are shutting down, their communication is disgustingly incompetent, and it doesn’t seem like their only game in the pipeline will ever release. And yet they still call themselves the “#1 global game site.” You talk about professional grade bullcrap.

But what inspired this article directly was the launch of Forsaken World: Gods and Demons. This game bills itself as “the most popular Fantasy RPG of 2021” and I’m just going to go on a limb here and say that’s false. Maybe it’s because the Google Play store only shows “1 million+” as the download number. Maybe it’s because the Steam version launched to a cap of 39 people. Surely the most popular fantasy RPG of the year would have more people jumping over to the Steam version. Or maybe it’s the 36% mostly negative rating from 25 people.

I think it’s fair to say that Forsaken World isn’t the “most popular” game of the year in any category, unless the Razzies added video games. Forsaken World’s claim of being the most popular fantasy RPG sure hasn’t convinced people to actually play it.

But what do I know, I only have access to statistics.
