'The Unreal Engine is the RyanAir of game engines'
Cryengine was my Ryanair... But hey Game engines are very tribal. So all I can say is, I've built games with UE4 & UDK. Whereas I struggled too much with CryEngine and dropped it. I enjoyed some time with Unity, but I could never get good looking results (although I hear that's changing).
Look, I'm not claiming Unreal is the best / easiest, its not. But if you invest time you get quality results. But you're from a different tribe so you'll always disagree... I'm guessing you're a Unity fan, as Lumberyard hasn't been around long and has anyone ever really fallen in love with Cryengine???
