Note that Pillars 2 hasn't been out anywhere near as long as those other games.

F:NV crushing the competition, it seems.

Lots of peeps seem to have missed out on BG2, at least the EE version (imagine the numbers, if the old BG1+2 were counted).

It's also noteworthy that those sales only include people who have actually played the games. So if someone has the game on his/her backlog it doesn't show up there.

 

Tyranny has sold pretty well after all. Makes you wonder if Paradox and Obsidian would be open to a sequel to finish up the story.

Steam comment. 

Who cares about the sales? just be greatful that such an amazing game exists. If we are greatful for the game then there will be a PoE 3. The kickstarter was so successful for this game, there will be a 3. Likely a kickstarter as well. I cant wait to throw tons of money at obsidian again. This one certainly delivered and strengthened my trust with obsidian for making games. They havent sold out yet, despite people complaining about their games. I admire Obsidians endurance, love every game they made, and hope to love every game they make in the future. The video game industry would be so much better if other devs made games they want instead of listening to random people. Sadly the money isnt there for that ideology. A game now a days gets payed for being generic and repeating the same mechanics as other games. Dont listen to anyone but yourselves Obsidian. thank you!!!

^Agree. Thanks a lot . Waiting PoEIII

Lovely sentiment you found. I hope Obsidian always keeps some iso-crpg in the pipeline with one of their teams going forward. It's a great niche genre and Obsidian absolutely rocks it out of the park. As long as they continue to deliver, I'll continue to support them, I think these games are an important facet to the video game landscape.

Also, many of these games have sold very well on other outlets besides Steam such as GOG, and in the cases of BG/2 EE their own in-house launcher system. Beamdog has mentioned that BG1EE has sold well over a million copies total.

I know it was a mobile exclusive for a long time before the steam release...  But still... Ouch.   :unsure:
