The PC has been the prime platform for many roleplaying games through the years. One of the reasons for that, at least in more recent days, has been the emergence of talented modders that make roleplaying games on PC so much better an experience than their console port counterparts. But many of the big RPG series that are popular today across all platforms started out on the PC back in the 90s originally. 

Here we take a look at the cream of the crop of those games.

2015 Entry: Pillars of Eternity

September 14th, 2013 was a really good day for fans of classic western RPGs like Baldur’s Gate, Planescape: Torment and Icewind Dale. On that day, Obsidian unveiled the Kickstarter for their new game Pillars of Eternity, and within 24 hours it had already reached it’s 1.1 million goal (for a total of a little over 4 million).

An oldschool RPG inspired by the games mentioned above, Pillars of Eternity will feature six races, eleven classes, a tabletop-inspired game system with pausable realtime combat. It’s great to see oldschool games like this making a return thanks to crowdfunding, but whether those millions were well-spent we’ll have to see when the game releases on PC, Mac and Linux sometime in 2015.
