Here’s my short and sweet fantasy RPG buying guide. If you want a rich, unique world with interesting characters and old-school but beautiful art, Pillars of Eternity is your best bet. If you’re looking for a snazzy combat, innovative mechanics, unusual ways to finish quests, and a great multiplayer experience, check out Divinity: Original Sin. But if you’re intimidated by features that make a game truly excellent, Sword Coast Legends will happily accompany you on your stroll through the elemental plane of mediocrity. Don’t get me wrong, SCL isn’t a bad game—it’s just not a particularly good one either.
