Tyranny would be my pick of those but I didn't like Banner Saga and the D:OSs weren't able to hold my interest.

I would also recommend Tyranny, provided you are into story and choice and consequence and don't mind a lot of reading.  It's a lot shorter than Pillars (the first one, I haven't played the sequel yet), but I personally enjoyed it quite a bit more.

If you want to smother a baby Tyranny is the game for you. :thumbsup:

Total Warhammer & Total Warhammer 2 are some of the best stratergy games available at the moment both for the single player campaigns and multiplayer battles.

 

Dead State was pretty good as a mixture of both but it starts to become a drag towards the end.

 

Frozen Synapse was a brilliant stratergy and tactics game an there's a sequel in development.

I'd recommend Tyranny.

Haven't played Banner Saga and disliked D:OS.

Tyranny has a very interesting world and the characters (in my opinion) are better than the ones in the Pillars Of Eternity series. It's good to be bad.

Divinity: Original Sin is pretty neat if you like comic rpg (comedy driven world). Keep in kind that the Original Sin games are best played with another player. It was made for co-op in mind.

I haven't played the others so I can't say anything about them really.

Play Battlefleet Gothic as it isn't an RPG

I thought all 40k games were bad with the exceptions of DoW1&2

Gothic is good as long as you don't play Multiplayer.
Same for Space Marine.

Gothic was pretty fun to play for me,  just don't pay too much for it. It was worth the $15 I paid
