    I always liked Bioshock more. Crysis is just a pretty, but generic shooter to me.

    Bioshock is more of a classic FPS: health that does not regenerate and limited ammo. I never played Crysis, but I think it follows a more modern trend: regenerating health and throwing piles of ammo at you, with ammo restored after levels. I could be wrong about Crysis, but I think that's how it works. So just get whatever style of game you like better, or just get both. $20 is a good price and the Crysis going back up might make that deal a little hard to pass up.

    On the stories, Bioshock has an excellent story, but I don't really know about Crysis.

    Gaisuto is right, crysis is pretty but its actual gameplay is pretty bad and generic

    I would go with Bioshock
    The whole theme and design is amazing.
    But if Bioshock remains $20 than you should get Crysis, and later get Bioshock

    I'm thinking along the same lines of Awdo. This deal will end soon. Bioshock is $20 for good.

    I like crysis alot because you can handle people how you want. I either sneak up the rear or jump on the roof, got prone/invisible, the take them out


    Crysis it is.

    Crysis is a pretty game with mediocre, boring gameplay, and Bioshock is a utterly broken mediocre shooter, with decent visuals and a story to offend anyone's sensibilities.

    Really, they talk about the story of Bioshock and the choices, but there's nothing worth mentioning in either part. Yeah, it's a lot of story for a shooter but it's hamhandedly done and doesn't really compare to classics of videogaming.

    Of those two? Crysis. Of any recent game? The Orange Box (dozens of hours of awesome gameplay), Mass Effect (Bioshock's story blown out of the water), possibly Dead Space (a competent shooter but not scary at all)...

    should of asked this a couple of weeks ago, I found bioshock at Circuit City for $10, grabbed myself up a copy, haven't even had a chance to open yet.

    Also got some good BF deals on F.E.A.R directors cut for $4.90, Prey $2.90, and Spiderman Friend of Foe $3.90. +shipping
