I personally prefer PF or 3.5 in a videogame precisely because you have lots of options, lore, classes, feats, backgrounds, etc right now (It has years of development. 5e does not even have epic levels now). You have lots of kits, feats and builds, prestige classes. etc.
I think I spent more time planning and trying builds in PF or NWN2 than anything. I fully embrace restartitis.

But for a TT its 5e hands down. Mechanics and calculations are far straightforward and simple to explain to newbies. You have more options outside combat and plenty of time to RP things. I usually like low level-low magic worlds and in 5e the chars are not that uber-powerful past lvl 10.
