I can afford one game, and one game only.

Alan Wake (360) 19 11.31%
 
God of War 3 (PS3) 60 35.71%
 
Batman Arkham Asylum (360) 11 6.55%
 
Battlefield Bad Company 2 (PC) 15 8.93%
 
Red Dead Redemption (PS3) 48 28.57%
 
Heavy Rain (PS3) 15 8.93%
 
Total:168

Curious as why Batman AA for 360? why not PS3? Does the GOTY edition have the Joker exclusive that was on the original PS3 version now on both?

3D Dot Game Heroes for sure. You could get that + a $20 budgeted title.


Honestly though I would say you should pick Red Dead Redemption fro the list you have shown. That game looks bad ass and should provide plenty of replayability.



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Final Fantasy: Record Keeper (iOS) & Dragon Quest V (iOS)     

    

Got a retro room? Post it here!

You can get GoW III at 25£ (28€) from GAME

I would order myself, but I'm waiting for the GoW: Collection and Yakuza 3 since I got both cheap. And those will keep me busy for a long time. :)

My pockets dont run deep these days so I can only afford one game, and i'd like it to have some epicness to it, aswell as some nice replay value since it will be the only game ill buy for a while.

I love story driven games with a good singleplayer. But i've also done alot of FPS competitive play in my days, so i know i'll get plenty of hours out of BFBC2. Even though it might not be suitable for competitive play, it can be nice to just level up and enjoy a good FPS.

At this moment in time, im leaning towards;

1.Red Dead Redemption - Length, multiplayer, Wild Wild West(!)
2.Alan Wake - Story, Epicness, Graphics, Horror
3.Heavy Rain - Story, Innovative, Hype, Graphics, My girl wants it.
4.BFBC2 - FPS, Multiplayer, Funfactor
5.God of War - Epicness, Story, Graphics, Hype, Mayhem
6.Batman AA - GOTY, Unique, Batman, Replay value

Please let me know if my thoughts on each game is way off. Like if Heavy Rain was overrated, or if Batmans replay value sucks. And as a promise to myself, ill buy whichever game reaches 50 votes first (so dont screw me over VGC :D). Or in case non of them makes it to that number, i'll pick the game with the most votes come May 10th.

     

I say wait for reviews and go with Red Dead Redemption. It can offer you most entertainment for your cash, either that or BFBC2 if you are into shooters. If you want singleplayer experience, I'd say either God of War or possibly Alan Wake, depends on your taste.



MY HYPE LIST: 1) Gran Turismo 5; 2) Civilization V; 3) Starcraft II; 4) The Last Guardian; 5) Metal Gear Solid: Rising

Where did he say Batman for the 360?  I totally missed that.

Unless it's cheaper on the 360 and that means he can get something like God of War collection there's no reason not to get it on the PS3 if you have a PS3.

Still though, I would either go with BFBC2 or Red Dead Redemption because he'll beat every other game quickly and then be bored.

I voted for Alan Wake.

You know damn well which ones have little replay value *ahem Batman** cough** God of War III***hack**

but.....uh.....ultimately, I've no clue how Alan Wake'll be in that department.

But get it anyway. That games been in development longer than some vgcharterz have been alive.

Excellent choice and even better reasoning. It's blessing to have someone as enlightened as you, who can look into the future and discover the shocking truth, that Alan Wake, while beeing 3rd person action game, has better replayability than either God of War or Batman AA, which are basicaly the same genre.

If you are going to suggest something, atleast do it right.

Can we get something like the dumbest post per week? I've got nominee
