    "Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition manages to distinguish itself from the original through a few standout additions. For one, there’s the Black Pits, a gladiatorial mode that throws you into increasingly difficult battles of enemies for the apparent the amusement of Baeloth the Entertainer. I found this fun and a good way to earn enough XP and gold for gear in the Black Pits shop. I also found it useful for trying out new techniques to prepare for similar challenges in the campaign."

    "As far as PC tactical RPGs go, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is my favorite ever. I remember logging countless hours on this game when I was younger. You can not beat this game enough. There is always a reason to come back."

    "This game has been out for a while (since 2010) and the graphics are indicative of that. I have definitely seen better graphics on other PC tactical RPGs. The game will run on many Windows operating systems, all the way back to Windows XP, so compatibility shouldn't be an issue. There is an expansion pack and several content packs available if you would like to enhance your game-playing experience."

    "The banner Saga 2 was fun to look at with its cartoonish graphics. I like that it allows me to role play while strategizing how to battles. The only thing I didn't like is that it is single player because I like to play with others."

    "The text link and the solution button send you to a gaming link that shows visuals in text and streaming forms, there is quite a bit of text so the user has a great deal of information to jump right into gaming. This was the 2nd most interesting of the 5 topics I have seen, the only thing missing here is audio."

    A "digital board game" in which you and four other AI or human players move their character around a hex grid board completing quests, fighting each other and NPC's, and collecting item, spell, and trap cards in order to satisfy one of the four victory conditions.

    "I know of a great game that is tactical, an RPG, and for PC. Armello is the name. I have played it myself plenty and man is it fun. It's basically a digital board game where you go around completing quests, fighting each others, collecting things like cards, and spells and much more. I would highly recommend it. Check it out. "

    "I really dig tactical role playing games, especially on PCs. While I like that many newer games take advantage of massive advances in GPUs/video cards, The Banner Saga brings such an insanely unique spin on the tactical RPG genre in that the whole game is designed to have its art and graphics resemble one of those really cool, but serious-in-tone cartoons from the early 1980's. The game mechanics are great and the combat is really engaging. The story is phenomenal, and the connection to the characters becomes strong over time. This is a can't-miss kind of game."

    "Torment: Tides of Numenera is a role playing game in the truest sense of the words. Each area introduces at least a dozen characters-each with their own stories and relationships. Torment encourages you to indulge your curiosity and talk to everyone you see. I found it easy to slip into the game’s world actually losing myself amidst the strange, unknown future."

    "RPGs are my favorite genre, so of course I had to play Pillars of Eternity! I made an Elven wizard to journey through the rich story Obsidian created for this great game. I had to make a lot of choices that influenced how the story played out, so I really felt immersed!"

    "What I like about this game is that it has a great story but it doesnt care about the main characters... while i feel that the characters i have are real. Another thing is that there are also interesting combat mechanics and unique animation style. "
