If you have some guts, you should try Yoko Taro's game: NIER and DRAKENGARD 3. They have both really poor production values but a lot of soul. They have both a cool multiple ending system that doesn't require hundreds of hours to be explored and that are really satisfying.
BINARY DOMAIN is also a cool action game with a cover system similar to Gear of War's. But instead of the Epic's game, you also get a interesting story and a japanese setting which is always better than a nno-japanese setting ^^
