$100 GameStop Credit... What games should I buy?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I was thinking of either buying Starcraft 2 (I have never played any RTS games) or maybe Portal 2. I can't really decide though.

Or should I just save it until BF3 comes out?

Or I could always sell the $100 card for $90 on eBay ($80 after shipping cost and 8% taken off due to eBay payment) and save up for a new MB or something.

Looking for some recommendations

Never played Sc2 as i don't like Rts games, but Portal 2 was and epic game. I beat portal 1 on xbox when it came out, and it was pretty frustrating at times due to puzzle difficulty. Then comes Portal 2 Epic story, Epic levels, Epics puzzles no where near as difficult at portal 1 yet they are amazingly fun. The bad is for me after i beat it there not much replay ability. It has Co-op but im not into that, I do plan to play the Sp atleast once more and take my time.

But yea Bf3 should be good, but im not good enough at bf2 to be anticipating getting owned on release day of bf3 haha.

I'd say SC2. It's got hours of gameplay to it. If you get bored of the actual game itself, there are countless custom games created by players.

Portal 2, and if you don't already have it, grab New Vegas. BF3's not going to be any different from any other battlefield game, which apparently everyone on OCN already owns three copies of going by how strongly recommended it is 'round here, so no need to spend fifty bucks on it.

Battlefield 3 pre-order. Also, if you are into portable console gaming I suggest you wait for a pre-order for the PlayStation Vita to come out
