Got a 10 EUR budget remaining, which one of those would you recommend? Or is there possibly something else worthwhile?

Bioshock 1&2 easily, no argument.

SR 3 hands down. Bioshock's demo contains all that is good about the game, its introduction and 2 is just average.

If you have any interest in a unique FPS, with an immersive setting, great story, loads of replayability, and unique combat, and you haven't played Bioshock yet, get them. Get them and play them both and then be hyped for Bioshock Infinite next year.

only played Bioshock 1 (just bought SR3 and have not played it yet) and judging by it, go with SR3. I personally find Bioshock incredibly boring.

You can't go wrong with either of them...Just close your eyes and pick point one :P

If you have someone to play coop with, Saints Row; if you're looking for an amazing single player experience, Bioshock.

I'd like to add that I've already played Saints Row 3 and finished it, back at the release time = no DLC. It was fun but I'm not a very replay-friendly person (may be an exception though). Therefore I'd like to ask - how much new content do the DLCs add (since there's like 16 of those)?

Most of the DLCs are just cosmetic stuff and vehicles. Only genki bowl adds a few missions. probably not worth the price of buying the whole package.

bleh. It feels repetitive and everything looks like its covered in icing :P. Loved the opening, then it gets dull.

Bioshock. What a great series.

Bioshock games are great, I love the atmosphere and the artistic design. The game is very immersive, the audio diaries are excellent, the story is decent even though some people might not find it overly exciting. I wouldn't say that it has lots of replay value, but it's good to go back to it once every few years.

What do you want? Open world GTAish wacky, or two quite good story driven shooters?
#17 Posted by nilzg (753 posts) -
all 3 games are great but I'd say Bioshock is the best (the first one for that matter)
#18 Posted by Cwagmire21 (5896 posts) -

I've played all three. Bioshock 1 was great fun with a great story that shouldn't be missed. Bioshock 2 improved on the gameplay but I found the story to be pretty lame. Saints Row 3 was a lot of fun to play. I didn't get any of the DLC. I was turned off by how many there were and from what I heard they were overpriced for the content they provided. The base games of all three are good choices though.

are you kidding? Most of the DLC stuff is entirely cosmetic. Only 1 or 2 of the DLCs have any substance to them at all. You should definitely get BS1 and BS2.

IMO only DLC really worth having are the 3 big ones (Genkei Bowl, Gangstas In Space, Trouble with the Clones) and the Shark Attack Pack since the Shark Gun is awesome. But since you have already beat the game, I would recommend Bioshock and Bioshock 2

You'll get far more meaning and interest out of BioShock 1 and 2. Saints Row has always seemed like a game to play when you've got too much time on your hands...

If you have a friend willing to buy it, Saints Row 3. It's fun alone, but with a friend it is just one of the most riotous fun times out there.

Alone, I'd go for Bioshock, I disliked the second but the first is a damn work of art.

If you already played Saints Row 3, then go for BioShock.

Tough one. Comes down to preference really. Bioshock is a GREAT fps, Saints Row 3 has huge replayability and is a lot of fun aswell. You can't go wrong with either imo.
