I cannot decide what i want to with my limited funds. Right now it's looking like i'm going to have to choose between Bioshock and Halo 3.
I didn't want Bioshock for a while because i thought that i wouldn't enjoy it but the demo changed that competely. First of all, the game started when i thought i was still in a cut-scene but turned out that it was actual gameplay. Great start. Then the enviorment blew me away, and i couldn't believe how tense the atmosphere was. It was amazing. I've been looking for a really atmosphereic scary game for a while and it looks like this might be it. It even has one of my worst fears in the beginning, a giant whale(go ahead, make fun of me, i'm afraid of whales). And the way that the lighting was used to create fear was amazing.
But when i really got to enjoy the game was the second time i played the demo, when i actually understood more things about the game and didn't get torn apart by security bots. That is what really blew me and made me really want this game.
On the other hand, it is halo 3. I've been playing halo since the first one. I always enjoyed them but they are definately not one of my favorite games. I most like them because when me and friends play games, it's useually Halo, something everybody has played and is familiar with. And the online for halo is extremely fun.
But heres one of the main things, if i want to play live, i have to bring my 360 down to the living room and wait until my Dad isn't home. He thinks i can download porn off of Live so i just keep off when he is around. So an all single-player game with great replay value would be a lot more convenient for me.
What do you guys think? Halo 3 or Bioshock. Honestly after writing this i am really leaning toward Bioshock, your input is greatly appreciated though.
P.S In the winter i will have a job so i will be able to pick up all the games i want in December and i can then pick up a wireless router for live in my room. So it's really just a matter of what i want first to last me until i get the other games like Assasin's Creed and Mass Effect..
