If you didn't own any of these games, and you could choose any one of them for FREE; which would you choose?

    Honestly, just because they're free doesn't make them any more attractive to me(they're not the genre of game I like) so I would choose none.

    Yeah I wouldn't choose any of them, because frankly I burned out on shooters years ago.

    If EA gives you a chance to get it for free, why ask others? Choose what you want

    I picked BF3.  Only because it's the only one I own, and ever plan on owning.  I'm tired of all the other shooters out there, except borderlands hehe.  As far as realistic type shooters go, BF3 is tops.  You can get the game of the year or whatever that gold bannered one is on amazon cheaper than buying the game and all the DLCs that are included on it hehe.  There's nothing like flying a gunship or apache helicopter around, you see a squad of enemy soldiers run into a building, and you rocket the bejeebus out of the building, and it collapses on them, and you get killspam.  Laughter bursts out across the chat, and a smile comes to your face.  Helicopters are really the only thing I'm good at in this game.  Jets are good too once you get heat seekers.  


    I usually run support when the map has no vehicles.  If it has vehicles, I run engineer.  Support is fun for setting up in a building, you get unlimited ammo, and a big huge machine gun  to spray and pray, but they don't have that bad of accuracy for a 200 round clip :D  Engineer is good for vehicle maps, because if you're like me and in a heavily damaged helicopter, you can fly back to your base, or behind a hill or something.  Land it, get out and repair it.

    I don't know much about any of these games. I'd like to hear what other people thought about them.

    I would have picked Sim City 4, so I could smash my original discs and make a nail bomb for EA,


    Otherwise, BF3.  Simply because it is a stand-alone title and doesn't rely heavily upon you having played the previous two titles.  Mass Effect would probably last the longest if you're not going to play BF online.

    I picked Mass Effect 3. When it came out I wasn't able afford it, but I did get a chance to play the demo and really liked it. It also got a lot of positive reviews.
  • HatefullHatefull Posts: 1,128Member Uncommon
    even for Free, Mass Effect 3 is the only one worth owning imo.

    If you want a new idea, go read an old book.

    It really depends on the type of game you enjoy. If you like multiplayer than BF3 would be the one to get as the multiplayer is the only real lasting appeal of that game. If you prefer a more single player experience than get Dead Space or Mass Effect. If you haven't played Mass effect 1 or 2 than 3 may not really interest you as it's the continuation of a story that spans all 3 games. Dead Space on the other hand pretty much has a unique story for each game so it wouldn't matter if you played the other 2 or not. Hope this helps.

    this selection is a bit narrow and is gonna be more of the style people like then whats better.

    but that aside i picked ME3 great game even if the ending was bad, the rest was pure win.

    F2P may be the way of the future, but ya know they dont make them like they used toimage

    Mass Efect 3 or Dead Space 3.

    From what I understand, Dead Space 3 has moved a bit farther from the "horror" roots and more intot he shooter roots but people do seem to like it. I liked what I saw of Mass Effect 3 but some people had issues with where they took the story (as well as some plot holes here or there), so if you are heavily invested in the Mass Effect story you might have issues with that.

    100% Battle Field 3 for me.  I own the others and have barely played them compared. . guessing this is a Sim City thing?

    Wa min God! Se æx on min heafod is!

    Mass Effect 3.

    Sure, the ending is controversial but if you've played ME1+2, don't you owe it to yourself to make up your own mind about it?

    I did not care for the ending to Mass Effect 3 as well. However, the Mass Effect 3 coop multiplayer is among the best out there. The rest of the Mass Effect 3 storyline is really high standard, the ending falls flat in comparison. I have just started playing Dead Space 3.
