Let's have a quick vote, what is the version of RPG Maker that you are currently using for your project? I'm planning to make a tutorial series and want to pick the most popular one as the base for my tutorial.

I use MV even though I own MZ too, for 2 reasons:
  1. the project I work on is started in MV and I use lots of plugins made for MV. (Mainly Yanfly plugins and a few others)
  2. I work on an outdated PC and it can not run MZ. The requirements on MV are way lower.

Maybe better ask someone who actually uses MZ. :p the difference I know from the top of my head is 3d animations and layered mapping.

Some of your options are for engines not sold by Degica. So if they ended up being the most popular, you would not be able to post a tutorial series about them here.

from the looks of it, it seems extremely unlikely that it will ever happen

You can get a larger sample size by looking at Steam statistics for each version. It's worth noting that such data neglects people who are using the non-Steam versions of the software, and people who are using Steam versions in offline mode. It also gets muddied a bit by people (like me) who boot up multiple versions of RPG Maker each month, yet only actually use one for primary development. But despite all that, I think that the data is probably still a bit more accurate than what you'll get from a poll in the forum. The people reading the General Lounge section of these particular forums, and who would take the time to respond to such a poll, aren't necessarily representative of the RPG Maker community as a whole.

Here is a pie chart comparing the 4 most popular versions, based on the average users logged into Steam over the past 30 days:

Even though MV is more widely used, I'd personally still rather see you use MZ as the base for your tutorial series. MV doesn't really need any more tutorials, and MZ could use the love.
