Mediums for Online Roleplaying Games

What's the best medium for ttrpgs, /mlpol/?
Do you use Roll20, Foundry, Discord, or Matrix to fascilitate online games? What do you like/dislike about them? What do you think makes for a good electronic tabletop. What other resources do you consider essential fulfilling online games?

What games are best played with electronic tabletops? Has compatibility with online resources ever influenced your choice of games?

To those of you who roleplay with meatspace groups, do you ever incorporate online resources or electronic tabletops into your games? How does that go? Can irl games be improved with online resources?

On this very board we've had a few ttrgs that have run entirely on /mlpol/ itself. To players of those games, would you say /mlpol/ is a good medium for ttrpgs? What do you like about chansites as a medium for roleplaying games? How have those games been? Would you like to play more ttrpgs on /mlpol/ in the near future? What does it take to run a good game on a small chansite like /mlpol/?

/vx/ has had ttrpgs running on it since its beginning, but I've been skeptical of using /mlpol/ as a single medium for games. Nevertheless, the idea of playing more /mlpol/-themed games with the /mlpol/ community is quite attractive to me, so I want to know what everyone thinks about it.

If there's one thing that I've liked about playing games on /mlpol/, it's been roleplaying with members of the community.
Combat is rather slow though.

I've typically used Discord for voice chat in games, and often combined that with an online tabletop like Roll20 or Foundry.

Foundry (for maps/macros) combined with Discord (for meetups/chatting) has been my default for gaming.

Discord is what I normally use for gaming too, but I've heard that some people have been switching to Matrix. I don't know how good matrix is for gaming though.

Does anybody use Roll20?
I hear it's popular among d&d 5e groups, because it works with dndbeyond.
