16 Games that Defined 2010s

The most important doesn't mean the best. There are games that we don't necessarily remember as great, but the whole gaming industry remembers them, and even changed under their influence. These are the most important titles of the last decade.

Pillars of Eternity

Release date: 2015

Genre: isometric RPG

Platforms: PC Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch

What kind of game is this?

A true RPG that goes back to the roots and classics of the genre, but since the production was handled by veteran authors from Obsidian Entertainment, it had to end well. "Pillars" impressed gamers with its well-written story, gameplay mechanisms and atmosphere that brought games like Planescape: Torment to mind. For the PCs alone, sales reached over 700,000 copies, and later conversions for consoles were created. And if we are talking about Pillars of Eternity, it is worth mentioning another game from this genre, which was released a year earlier, namely Divinity: The Original Sin.

What will the Pillars of Eternity be remembered for?

Pillarsy and Divinity are primarily a classic isometric role-playing games such as the aforementioned Planescape, Icewind Dale or the immortal Baldur's Gate.

  1. Disco Elysium;
  2. Divinity: Original Sin series;
  3. Wasteland series;
  4. Pathfinder;
  5. and Baldur's Gate 3, which is yet to come.
