Okaing, getting off work in a few hours and going to head to the local Best Buy to buy another game for my rocking new rig. I've tearing through HL2 and playing CS: Source, but I'd like to mix it up a bit.

Far Cry
- Award Winning
- Stunning visuals
- $20

BF2
- Well recieved
- Just patched to V1.02
- Will really push my new rig to its limits

Suggestions?

Depends. If you want a good single-player experience, Far Cry is the only way to go. If you'd rather mix it up with people online, then get BF2.

Simply put, Farcry for good SP, BF2 for good MP.
FC MP isnt very exciting, BF2 SP isnt either..
I would go with BF2, it has ALOT more playtime, and is really fun, especially if you got some pals that play.

saturn is exactly right.

mindless and endless carnage = BF2

solid story and beautiful visuals = Far Cry

This will probably weigh on my mind on the way home and to the store. I should stop being poor and buy both :p

At least I'm veering from WoW, I think that would be a bad idea right now.

You're not going to go "wrong" with either purchase, so you're safe there. Like everyone said: MP = BF2, SP = FarCry. However... FarCry's multiplayer is a little more "mindless" compared to BF2's. If you just want to shoot people up for no reason or method, FarCry's MP will let you do that. If you try that tactic in BF2, you may lose the map or folks will get ticked at ya. :-) Either way... they're both great games IMO.

Mario Kart is by far the best choice.... :D

Personally, I'd go with BF2 especially since you can get it for $35 this week from Circuit City (or another store that will pricematch them), and will last you a very long time when you can get into it. Far Cry was fun, and although the MP sucks, the single-player was very entertaining and the mods for it look pretty decent. I think Far Cry looks better overall, especially with the 64-bit content and HDR, while BF2 looks nice but has quite a few annomalies and insane memory usage. Or pick both up for $55 total, and then you have the best of both worlds.

LOL, BF2 has got it's fair share of bugs too I can garantee you!! :p

Never mind the bugs neither of these games are superbugged or perfect just take whatever you desire the most.. Personally I'd go for BF2 but that's because I played Far Cry through a couple of times a year ago. If I'd not played any of these titles yet my choice would be simple: Both :D

I'll agree with him. :D Since Farcry is only $20, both should be easy to afford.

If you have 1gb of ram, go for farcry. Otherwise, get your ass to mars-er-BF2!

I would get BF2 just because its on sale big time this week! I have some Best Buy reward zone certs so if they match the CC price I'll be paying $20.

id would say that both of those games are pretty ram intensive. honestly i think 1gb of ram is in order for both of these fine titles, if not 2gb.

Yeah alright Arnie, calm down m8. :D

FarCry for SP
BF2 for MP (personally I would go with CoD for MP) :afro2:

BF2 is on sale at Circuit City this week for $35! I said screw BB and got it from there instead. At least they had the DVD version.

If you have'nt played FarCry yet then thats the game to get,To me the graphics and game play is just as good as halflife 2 and it last a lot longer then HL2.
