I'm content with games that offer refined and nuanced gameplay in a classical fantasy setting, so this. I'm tired when it comes to things like classical cyberpunk but that's because sci-fi does less for me.

The "problem" is, as long as elements of a game are instantly recognizable as oldschool/ tried and true (such as the setting), a lot of people tend to judge it as being the "same old, same old" (even if the mechnics are radically different). See Project Eternity.
