Below are the FINAL FOUR! To see them in a tournament-style bracket, you can go to this website: http://challonge.com/bestoftherpgs. (You don't have to create an account to view the bracket.)

Each RPG's seed number is listed in parentheses after its name in the polls.

Okay, let's vote on our favorite RPGs. Most of us have not played all of these, but you can still vote based on genre, mechanics, description in the database, etc., or even whichever one looks the coolest. The criteria for "best RPG" is totally up to you, but make sure your vote gets heard on all of these!

Color commentary, reasons for voting one way or the other, and good-natured smack talk are strongly encouraged in the comments beneath the GeekList items.

Good luck to all the RPGs competing in the Final Four, and may the best RPG win!

VOTING ENDS MIDNIGHT, GEEK TIME, TONIGHT!
