    Wait so undertale is related to homestuck?

    I guess that's why I never saw the appeal.

    It is, in fact, not

    The creator of Undertale made music for Homestuck

    Other than that, the biggest connection is the fanbase

    Someone, somewhere, in Undertale is a troll in the most abstract of senses.

    No one has cared enough to try to figure out who.

    Haha wouldn't be great if Gaster was the troll?

    Haha, Undertale is winning its third round in the GameFAQs "Best Game Ever" poll thing.

    I predict the final battle will be between Undertale and FF7.

    I never considered Undertale as being niche. I've got loads of friends who don't know what a tumblr is (or hell, dislike the website) and they all love the game.

    Speed's insane game ranking podcast was inspired by a thing that was inspired by that stupid gamefaqs contest so its existence at least indirectly caused some small good

    bear in mind "tumblr" has also become neckbeard speak for "something I don't like"

    Undertale is related to Homestuck in the same way that Chrono Trigger is related to Final Fantasy or Dragon Ball Z. People who worked on it have also worked on Homestuck and were probably inspired by it in some small ways, but they're independent projects.

    The undertale wiki says that So Sorry was the fan troll donor, and Glyde and Muffet are the boss donors. But it's a wiki, so take that with the usual salt quantities.

    I voted for Undertale because I legitimately think it's the better game!

    SMW was an evolution of the great formula that SMB3 built and it is extremely well designed and mechanically sound, but it really didn't bring as much to shake up the genre as Undertale did to JRPGs. I would not be surprised if we see the bullet-hell style combat show up in more, bigger budget games in the future. This isn't even getting into the clearly better story and characters (though to be fair to Mario, that wasn't considered as important at the time it came out).

    Had they said Mario 64 I probably would've voted for it because it basically defined 3d platforming, but they picked World so Undertale wins.

    It's up against Pokemon after this round which I'm sure will beat it unfortunately (I strongly dislike the series).

    Undertale is excellent but it does also feel like for a lot of people it's very flavor-of-the-month

    I don't know that it'll be able to beat Mario world in this kinda poll 5 years from now

    It's good to know that people are still getting mad at the GameFAQs contests.

    Makes me feel less embarrassed for getting outraged ten years ago that Cloud would be anywhere CLOSE to beating Link.

    So far, Undertale is only in my top 40, though it's creeping upwards with every re-evaluation, so I wouldn't be too upset if it doesn't win. But I do like all the recognition it's getting. My current top 10 at least is still doing alright in this dumb poll, save for the two (Iji and Legend of Mana,) that I knew had no chance. But it's CRIMINAL that Portal got bumped in round one.

    That's the funniest reaction to the game since it sparked someone saying that video games promote violence.

    Yes, that flower has so much LOVE.

    To be fair, Undertale would have steamrolled Sonic 2 even though it is my favorite.

    Pokemon will be a tough fight for Undertale.

    I think it will hold up. The game's honeymoon period is well past over and people are still extremely positive about it.

    The fun thing would be to convert Pokemon into the player doing a Genocide run, with the Gym Leaders trying to stop the widespread ecological destruction, whilst Professor Oak cries about how he didn't want his Dex filled like this.
