I'm obsessed with COD4 Mulitplayer. I've beaten BioShock and looking to replay it on Hard difficulty. I'm ripping through a Rock Band solo tour on drums and playing with the family band.

But I'm itching for something new. I'm wondering if I should hold out for the release of Rainbow Six Vegas 2 in March or get something already released.

At the top of my list is Mass Effect, Gears of War, Rainbow Six Vegas, or The Orange Box.

Suggestions?

Mass Effect is a must buy! Best game I've played in many years!

Orange Box! ORANGE BOCKS!!!

5 kick ass games in one! Portal alone is worth the price of admission, as is Half-Life 2. Then TF2 is great as well.

Fuzion Frenzy 2.

Seriously, I'm gonna put in a good word for Vegas, but the truth of the matter is, the only game that stands differently from COD 4 is Mass Effect.

Either way you go, you can't go wrong.

Thanks for the suggestions, fellas.

It's always a tough choice when you can only pick one.

When I got the system over the holidays I wanted one shooter and one rpg/adventure title.

I chose COD4 over Halo3 and chose BioShock(I know some may argue it is an FPS but it plays more like an adventure/RPG to me) over Mass Effect.

Looks like I'm leaning towards Mass Effect just because I've heard how great it is.

You NEED :

Mass Effect (Fucking awesome - nuff said).
Dead Rising.
Stranglehold (Short but oh so soooo sweet).
Conan (ONLY if like me you enjoy a brainless gory hack 'em up).
Overlord (Great concept, very funny and likeable, and challenging to boot).

Clarify.

What "flat out lies" are being used to stir shit up and by whom.

Interesting.

Mass Effect is amazing but so is The Orange Box...You can't go wrong with either....Rainbow Six Vegas is a great game as well, and probably should be played before 2 comes out in a few weeks.

I passed on Rainbow Six Vegas in favor of Mass Effect just because Vegas 2 was coming out in a month. I'll probably be behind in the story but I felt that since a newer, possibly better version was on the way I can wait.

I'm loving Mass Effect, though. I've been out of town on business for two weeks now and jonesing to get home and continue mission.
