Pillars of Eternity or Tyranny?

After playing the Divinity: Origin Sin games, I've been wanting to play another kind of game like this, where I can level up my characters, find better gear, get immersed in the lore etc.

I came across Pillars of Eternity & Tyranny, which both seem good. I know they're not turn based like Divinity, but that doesn't matter to me. My question is, which of these two would you suggest? If you suggest both, which should I play first?

I've been watching some PoE gameplay, but there seems to be SO MUCH reading to do. I just finished the game 'Vampyr', and the amount of reading & conversations with NPCs in that game made me so bored by the time I'd finished it, so I'm not quite sure whether I'll feel the same about PoE, especially considering it's not voice acted.

It's not that I'm a complete dunce who's unable to read, but I like there to at least be a decent balance between things like exploration, reading, combat, gearing up etc.  Whereas from what I've seen so far of PoE, it seems that the majority of the game is non voice acted reading every couple of minutes, with pages upon pages of dialogue.

Which would you suggest out of these two games?

Either that, or I buy Just Cause 4 for some mindless fun, without much thinking involved haha.  That's my 3rd option at the moment.

    I have both.... but prefer PoE, it's the better game IMO.

    I did several playthroughs of Pillars of Eternity. Great game. Never played Tyranny so I can't comment on it.

    I guess it's just the way that games are going these days along with TV and everything else, but the lighthearted fun that was spun together with saving the world from oppressing evil in games like Baldur's Gate, is just not present in these games.

    PoE and Tyranny are all of the grim, dark and oppressing evil bits without any of the fun, joy and adventurous spirit of their predecessors.

    I honestly loathed both games and couldn't bring myself to finish either one.

    I would only recommend dipping my toes into either game at the lowest price point, and, of the two, PoE plays better, even if the world and story are soul sucking and depressing.

    I LOVE Tyranny. But both are great games worth your time.
