Tyranny is one the best RPGs I've ever played. Definitely ranks up there in the top 5. IMO it's much better than Pillars of Eternity for a multitude of reasons. A refreshing take on the fantasy genre, turns the tired old fantasy tropes on it's head, but in a good way. If you've wondered what it would be like to live in a fantasy world where the Evil Overlord WON, then check this game out. If you're pining for a game that gets what makes RPGS truly compelling (player choice), look no further. If there is only one gripe I have with it it's that it is a little bit shorter than what we are used to today, but that makes for a more compelling storyline, especially when player choice is taken into account because depending on what you do, playthroughs can be very, very different. It's such a shame that it didn't sell that well, because the rich worldbuilding and the conclusion of the storyline begs for a sequel.
If you've not played it, get it during the freebie week, play it after you're done with Cyberpunk.

Tyranny is excellent, and if you push a little, you can probably finish it in four days without too much difficulty. Well worth it if you like Baldur's Gate style games.
And yes, you CAN play as truly "Fuck everybody" evil.
