Although the tide has shifted as technology has become more advanced, isometric RPGs have left their stamp on gaming. Popularized in the '90s on PC, this role-playing subgenre tends to feature big casts of characters and is usually very story-driven; however, isometric RPGs can vary widely when it comes to their combat, ranging from turn-based systems to more action-oriented ones.

A highly-rated send-up to classic isometric RPGs like Baldur's Gate and Planescape: Torment, Pillars of Eternity serves as a prime example that these types of games still have a place in auto clicker gaming when handled by a capable developer. Obsidian crafted an engaging and complex combat system that rewards adapting one's playstyle depending on an enemy's weaknesses and strengths.

Like many of the subgenre's best creations, Pillars of Eternity's limits experience points to quest completion and exploration, freeing users to approach obstacles in whatever way they see fit. With eleven classes and a solid story, Pillars of Eternity is a great recent entry to the genre. Combining 3D with an isometric camera angle, Tactics' turn-based battle system takes place on a grid-style battleground where a unit's movement is dictated by their stats and class. The combat system requires constant planning from the player, as the enemy AI offers a reasonable challenge through the lengthy and fantastic campaign. since it was originally released in 1999, arguably no other title has come close to mimicking that sense of being part of a small rebellion waging an ever-expanding war against an overwhelming enemy. Jagged Alliance 2 places users in charge of a mercenary group tasked with liberating the nation of Arulco and restoring the royal family to their throne.

Along with taking over towns and mines to fund the resistance, the player is constantly seeking to expand their forces' numbers and arsenal. Jagged Alliance 2's ambition is impressive even in 2020.
most recent entry in the Divinity franchise is not only the best in the series but also one of the greatest RPGs of any generation. When the veil separating Rivellon from the Void begins to fade, the Seven Gods elect a Godwoken to keep the latter's evil forces from breaking into the former.
