Mass Effect3, Alan Wake or Skyrim ?
 
Been busy with decorating so haven't been able to game much but what time i have had ive spent playing FIFA 12...Best football game ever! imo of course. :) Should have the decorating finished this weekend so will be treating myself to a new game for my hard earned efforts.

Problem is, even after reading reviews i can't decide between 3... Mass effect 3, Alan Wake or Skyrim .. What do you think ?

I haven't played ME3, bu the other 2 are both good games. Skyrim will give you the most bang for your dollar in my opinion, but they both get repetitive before long.

I did think Alan Wake was very well done though, the closest I've had to a 'new' experience recently.

I assume you've played the first two Mass Effect games? I have myself and intend to get the 3rd to complete the story. I also plan to get Skyrim soon too, but as that seems to be getting lots of updates I'm not sure whether to just wait for a GOTY edition. Not so bothered about Alan Wake, as I'd prefer to pick it up in the bargain bins after waiting so long already. So main two for me, are ME3 and Skyrim, and if I had the money, I'd buy both right now!

Yup played through both ME and ME2 and will at some point get ME3 however with all the stuff about some fans being dissapointed with the game/ending i was considering something else...Alan wake looks original and i have been looking forward to this game for a long time, in fact its been so long (remember this was supposed to be showcased for DX10) and along with the disappointing news that the PC version had been dropped i sort of lost interest. I am kinda swayed to Skyrim though as i am intrigued to see what the fuss is about other than the obvious awesome visuals (and Mods). The game apparently has lots of bugs but people praise it loads..

If I had to choose. Skyrim, best value for money.

However if you want a game that's a little shorter Mass Effect 3/Alan Wake both are great. If you want SP and Multiplayer get ME3, play the multiplayer to unlock the better endings for the SP (or play Infiltrator and Datapad on iOS like me).

All 3 games are worth getting eventually.

Skyrim is pretty amazing and a continuation of Oblivion, it still has many of the same problems though.

ME3 is also a great game, despite the 10 min end (which could still be decent if theories are right) it's the best game so far this year.

Alan Wake doesn't get love from everybody, it seems more a love or hate type game. I personally enjoyed it

So unless you didn't like Oblivion / Fallout 3 I would stick with Skyrim.

Skyrim. Just started playing it a few days ago. Looks gorgeous with all the mods and I spent 4 hours so far just randomly walking about from one area to another. :)

Skyrim, hands down. Especially now that it's been all patched up.

Mass Effect 3 is really good, despite the crying about the ending. It's about a 30 hour game max, I finished it in 21 hours or so. I have more than double that in Skyrim.

I have Alan Wake for the 360 and although it was good, it would be my 3rd choice.

Disable fast travel in Skyrim and the game suddenly lasts a lot longer...

Eventualy i will have all 3 games but i think im gonna go with skyrim first..Awesome visuals, long lasting and mods...I love to play with cfg's etc and i loved Oblivion. I wish i could get all 3 but i have something up my sleeve and dont want to piss the Missus off lol (I want a Kepler for Easter).
