Cool So now that I have a SUPER DUPER COMPUTER...

So now that the DOMINANCE is officially a SUPER DUPER COMPUTER I have decided to get one Super Duper system requirement MODERN game.

Should I get Battlefield Bad Company 2 for 49 bucks, or should I get the Crysis MAXIMUM edition pack which is a conglomeration of various items in one pack for 30 something dollars? I will let you all decide then make a decision based on a decision I reach after various suggestions.

If you want single player then Crysis is your answer. Multiplayer and your decision should be bad company 2.

I only play Multiplayer however the Crysis pack does include Warhead and its supposed SUPER DUPER multiplayer expansion pack. I have heard great things about Bad Company 2 but I am very familiar with Battlefield series games and gameplay already so I am unsure.

I dunno Bob my only concern is that while people rave about it, and the game video looks great, many people also describe it as a gussied up version of Battlefield 2. Now I've owned all of the Battlefield games, and in terms of time played, I would say it's 1942 > 2142 > Vietnam > Battlefield 2 ........I jus never really liked Battlefield 2 as much as the others. I am also highly unstable so telling me to get Bad Company 2 could only push me further towards Crysis.

If you like the game videos, then buy it. The game is just like that. Who cares what some douchebag thinks of it. I have more than 5 days worth of time invested in it, and haven't progressed in the singleplayer further than the first level. I can't see myself stopping to play this game for a long time. It is VERY "FLEXIBLE". BUY IT!

Well I mean if you like the gameplay videos, why bother thinking about what some people's comments are. My number one decision if deciding to buy a new game is either play demo, watch gameplay videos, or both. I haven't been to a review site like gamespot or whatever for years.

I preferred 2142 to 2 and I think BC2 is a lot faster paced. Crysis multiplayer is really not even worth considering.
