Winner: Pillars of Eternity
cRPGs had long been forgotten until Divinity: Original Sin and Pillars of Eternity showed up. The latter was a particularly memorable affair, awakening the engrossing spirit of games that left profound memories on games during the '90s. Although it was classically inspired, it managed not to feel archaic. Thoughtful game design produced something deep and methodical, rewarding those willing to lend the game their eyes and ears with a remarkable experience from start to finish.
