San Andreas is my favourite, followed by Vice City. Hours of fun to be had in either of those
So I'm thinking of getting:
The Witcher 2
Assassin's Creed II
Should I also get The Witcher (1)? Oh, also looking at FTL and it seems great, will wait for it to be at more than 25% off though if I do decide to get it.
The Witcher 2 is an amazing game. Tons of depth, a great storyline, and excellent graphics. However, the gameplay/combat is rather strange and will take a few hours to get used to.
Assassin's Creed 1 is a good game if you love the story, however gameplay is repetitive and boring. It takes repetitiveness to a level of its own. The only reason I finished it was because of the story.
Assassin's Creed 2 is the best of the series, in my opinion. I haven't played AC3, but 2 had a fresh story, excellent gameplay upgrades from the AC1, and better combat/mechanics. If you liked Brotherhood and Revelations, but thought there was too much to do (Assassin Dens, stupid bomb customization, a billion different weapons) then you will love AC2.
