Default PC: Gears of War or Lost Planet?

my wife bought me Crysis for xmas and i already have it and pretty much every other first person shooter, so i'm thinking ill return it and try a third person shooter.

now, looking at my specs which would you suggest? i have no idea how these games run on pc. so if you guys can give me a little feedback, that would be great. also, i think i'll be playing single player mainly. third person multiplayer? dunno if i could get used to that

I would go with LP. I've had more fun with it than GOW. I would almost venture to say LP has better graphics but GOW does look very nice in most spots. The bosses, get LP just for the bosses.

They're both great, but Lost Planet has a ton of cool graphical features.
Here's the neat fur shader,

and excellent motion blur,


Capcom has added a number of PC-only effects and features, so the 360 version really looks dated compared to the PC version in DX10.

Both are worth a purchase but I personally bought LP first but once I can get GoW for bargain bin price (sorry MS, thats all the Windows Live support you will get) I will purchase it as well.

how well do these games run? heres a list of the type of fp shooters i play, maybe that will give you more of an idea of what game i might prefer.

COD 2 & 4, BF2, CSS, DODS, Crysis. i really like the type of single player the cod series offers. graphics arent everything, but i dont want a complicated SP experience. i like fairly easy objectives, and lots of run n gun

Really hard to choose...

For single player I'd go with LP. It's great fun and you have the SLI to run it ok. Though a quad core would help too.

For multi... GoW. Co-op pwns!

No. Silver is free. Though you don't get ranked matches and the like. ::

i would stick with crysis... lost planet gets boring very fast and i dont know if they fixed it but gears of war kept crashing within 30 seconds for me every time so i ended up returning it... i do have it on 360 and its a pretty amazing game (too bad it doesnt support widescreen)
