Facry 3 and Bioshock Infinite both awesome FPS games. Which game you enjoy most PC gamers ?

For me, Bioshock Infinite > Facry 3.

Bioshock Infinite no doubt. Played it twice back to back, and I'm almost halfway through a third run. Can't seem to get enough of it. I can't bring myself to play something else. I did really love FC3, as well, though.

Hmmm...

Farcry has some advantages. Open environments, good graphics but the story and characters aren't very good. Infinite had a better story but is a very closed environment and graphics aren't up to par on PC (mainly the textures and low polygon count. 

Overall I'd say I enjoyed Farcry 3 more just because of the open environments but Infinite was enjoyable while it lasted.

Both are overrated but I'd say Far Cry 3 because the game play is extremely ambitious and some of it works very well. Improvising ways of crossing the island is great and I liked the hunting very much.

I have yet to finish Bioshock Infinite, but thus far, I like the visuals more, and the gameplay. I did really enjoy the freedom in Far Cry 3 however, so I'd recommend them both(Thus far for Bioshock).

The 1999 mode shouldn't be the challenge, but not buying any ammo in 1999 mode might be.

Far Cry 3 for the open environments, Bioshock Infinite for the story. Both had great gameplay and even though the graphics are quite different, they were both beautiful games. Can't go wrong with either!

I think Bioshock is a marvel and something special beyond just being a game. With that said, I had had more fun with FC3 and played it a lot longer.

Far Cry 3 was a much more immersible and enjoyable gaming experience. I was not impressed with Bioshock at all.

Far Cry 3 purely because of it's open world, I can play the game for hours and not get bored. Infinite is great in it's own respects though, and seems to be shaping up as the swansong of this gen.

Same feeling mate. It was a bit of a disappointment for me too. I thought the original game was much better.

The 1999 mode shouldn't be the challenge, but not buying any ammo in 1999 mode might be.

I did my only 1999 mode run going for that achievement. Wasn't too bad, actually. Just gotta switch up equipment on the fly to match any given encounter, and rely on vigors more than weapons. With the Storm hat, fully upgraded Devil's Kiss just facerolls almost any group. Combine that with Blood for Salts shirt, and you pretty much never run out of salts, either.

FC3 has much more to do, a longer game. Pretty much Skyrim with guns. I would still take Bioshock, the story and art were amazing.

Why do people say that? Just because it's in first person? It has NOWHERE near the depth of Skyrim. FarCry 3 is EXACTLY modern Assassin's Creed

Both about even for me, Bioshock Infinite has better story, characters and art design, but Farcry3 had better gameplay (loved the hunting) and much more replay value.

I think they're different enough that they aren't quite comparable as something like, say FPS vs FPS, making this thread potentially more of a, "do you like tight, streamlined FPSs or sandbox FPSs?" than it might appear. Far Cry had a lot more RPG elements and a vastly different playstyle because of the freeform sandbox, whereas Bioshock Infinite is an entirely different beast centered around tight environments and highly-scripted gameplay events. Personally, I think it does both a disservice to compare them directly as FPSs.

Depends if you are after a sandbox game to mess around with that has pretty flexible shooter gameplay or a story driven experience. 

I think overall I enjoyed Infinite more because Far Cry 3 has a poor story and very inconsistent mission quality, and while it's fun to explore the Island and complete side objectives they aren't enough on their own to make the game feel like a full experience; Infinite on the other hand kept me interested until the end. 

Still, I'd get Far Cry 3 now if you can find it cheap and then by the time you are done with that Infinite might be on sale somewhere, both games are worth playing.

Honestly Far Cry 3 was way better, the gameplay is a billion times better and the story just won't make a game good for me. Not to say Infinite was bad though, it was just average.

Infinite is on another level. Sure Far Cry 3 had more to do, but none of it was interesting.

It's hard to choose... But if you want a great story go with Bioshock Infinte... If you want fun gameplay go with Far Cry 3.

 

P.S: That's not to say that Bioshock Infinite doesn't have fun gameplay, but FC3 is just more fun in that regard.

That's great. They seem to have learned their lesson from trying to extort grandmothers over TW2 piracy. wenming

Bioshock Infinite. One of my top 20 favorite games of all time. Far Cry 3 isn't even close. Nice open world game with some nice touches, but to me, NOTHING beats such a great and well thought out story (plus the gameplay and art are sublime)!

Entirely different types of FPS. In my humble opinion both excel at what they do, Far Cry 3 being my favorite game of last year and Bioshock my current favorite of this year.

This. 100% agreed.

I loved BioShock Infinite's story. Gameplay was solid. Far Cry 3 had a good story and excellent gameplay.

Apples and Oranges. I enjoyed both games a lot, I'd probably pick FarCry 3 since I tend to have a big soft spot for open world games, but at the end of the day they are very different games.

I still need to play FarCry 3. I'll likely pick it up during the next Steam sale. But I LOVE BioShock Infinite. So if FarCry 3 is similar quality I'll likely love that game too. Besides, it's been a long time since there was an open-ended shooter as good as Crysis. Might as well be FC3.

Far Cry 3 is more fun and has way better gameplay. Bioshock Infinite is great if you don't play games for fun.

Funny. I played Bioshock Infinite 3 times already, and it's been the most fun I've had gaming in years.
