Tell me what happened so I don't repeat the mistake.
EDIT: sorry by the way if this isn't the right place for this thread. I don't know which mod locked it though, and I didn't wanna make a thread in the subforum the thread was made in because that'd be kinda pissy looking.
Thanks for trying to help though.
"tell me your 5 favorite whatevers" threads are considered poll thread here, and frowned upon by the mods. We already had that sort of discussion many times before, anyway, with much better OPs.
I really just wanted to get some suggestions for games to play, my collection is wearing a bit thin right now.
There was no need to shit on my post by the way, but thanks nonetheless. I'll be sure to avoid making threads like this in future.
It is true that occasionally poll threads will go a few dozen pages and not get locked, because sometimes that line is blurred and we have some good discussion, but generally they are frowned upon.
Not to shit on you or your thread, but another thing about your thread that doesn't fly well around here is the idea that some aspects of a game makes it a proper RPG or shooter or whatever. That typically ends up in huge arguments over definitions and whether a listed game meets all the criteria. I don't think it's against the rules but it can result in high tensions. It's fine to say you like games where you get to do X, but suggesting that X means the game is somehow more legitimate is going a little far.
About your second point: I just thought I should be specific about what kinda game I was looking for. To me JRPGs are more like reading a book than forging your own tale. Not that all JRPGs are shit, some are quite good. But I digress. I was just trying to be specific, not shit on anyone's tastes.
