    Oh man if you like cyberpunk and old school just pick up all the Shadowrun RPGs. Do eeeeet
    Shadowrun Returns is middling but Dragonfall and Hong Kong are epic, they all use the same engine so they're basically the same game (but Dragonfall/HK add heaps of features and are way larger settings/plots etc)

    Also Wasteland 2.

    If you are as big an old school RPG fan as you say, then Wasteland 2 and Pathfinder Kingmaker should be at the TOP of your list. The former is basically the OG fallout games, the latter is basically the OG baldur's gate games.

    +1 for the Shadowruns.

    Also, worth a look, Pillars of Eternity: Deadfire. Terrific baldurs gate style game with a pirate/nautical theme, using a DnD ruleset of some kind.

    Check out Grim Dawn for an ARPG. A lot meatier than D3 in regards to story/lore/quests etc, without the overall complexity of PoE. All set in a cool, gothy, steampunk world.

    These are 75% off on steam at the moment for anybody interested. Haven't really dabbled in this kind of game before but they look good and are only a few bucks so I picked them up. Side note, flawless 21:9 support out of the box :)

    Shadowrun Dragonfall DC is 75% so might grab that. I see it's a standalone version of the expansion. Does one need to/is it worth playing Shadowrun Returns first? I'm a bit anal in this way lol.

    I wouldn't say so, but you'll be 100% at home with the ruleset, GUI, setting etc. if yo u do. There is zero story linkage other than being in the same game universe.

    Sweet. $5 on Steam, Grim dawn is <$10 on humble bundle. Searching GMG aswell. Lookout, budget spending spree coming up on much of the above lol.

    If you don't mind a bit of dungeon crawling try Torchlight I & II - from some of the devs/designers behind D1 and D2. Prices are a little high on steam atm, but put them on your wishlist.
