So i dont know which of these i want. i was leaning toward X-Com but i dont know Far Cry 3 looks pretty good too, and i wanted Dishonored since it was announced. Ive seen a lof of good free games with PS+ so maybe i should renew my subscription. So many choices!!!! Help me Giant Bomb!!!

XCom is always the right choice, but if you are on a budget and $50 is a rare thing for you to come by then PS+ is the no brainer You get a ton of games and by the time you beat them a new wave is ready. One bit of advice however, if you get PS+ start going to the Playstation blog site at least once or twice a week to keep up to date on what's coming out next and when.

X-Com, because I'm getting Far Cry 3 and Dishonored, damn it! (and X-Com, later on, but turn-based strategy is more your thing than mine.)

EDIT: Also, you voted for X-Com yourself. Wanna know how I know? 'Cause this thing filters what you voted for by IP address and I didn't have an option.

money isnt really the issue here X-Com appeals to me because i like RTS games and the concept a turn based strategy game appeals to me. but then again Ps+is a ton of new games often

XCOM. Although Dishonored is pretty good too, but XCOM will probably give you more bang for your buck.

Far Cry 3 is fucking amazing. X-Com has no replayability really once you're done sadly. But from what i've played so far of Far Cry it looks long as shit and is fun as hell.

X-Com isn't an RTS. And you've been playing S.T.A.L.K.E.R. on here. Damn it.

Either you mean Sleeping Dogs, or there's a cool new 3DS game I need to get in on.

X-Com is amazing if you're into strategy. Dishonored might join Sleeping Dogs in the most overlooked column.

@Video_Game_King:

Are you not down with Vinny's pet name for what one of his favorite games of the year?

Also roomy drama!

I can't help, as I haven't played any of the games you listed and it's tough to recommend a year of plus without knowing what games will be available during that year. Personally I want to play XCOM the most of those three.

It really depends what your preference is in terms of gameplay, story, replayability, and just a general fun factor. But I would personally recommend PS Plus just because you'll get a lot of different games for less than the price of one. :)

Tough pick. Either XCOM or Far Cry 3, I'd say. Dishonored is great, but it's a lean package comparatively, if that matters to you.

Can't. My copy will be on PC and digital. His will be on PS3.

XCOM is super good, but it's probably going to drop in price soon and you'll be able to pick it up at a discount. PS+ is a fantastic value for the money, and if your sub is about to lapse you may as well renew now. I haven't ever seen PS+ subscriptions for less than $50, so there is no risk in just going ahead and taking care of it now.

But you'll still need to play XCOM, seriously.

Dishonored in my opinion sucked. A lot of things interested me like the hand drawn art and the setting/style of the game, but it was really overwhelming and there was just so much shit happening at once. I quit after 2 days. Very interesting game though, I just think it was poorly executed.

Dishonored is pretty awesome and fun as hell if you actually mess around with the powers in combat. I can't comment on the other options but I know you can't go wrong giving dishonored a try.

If getting the most bang for your buck is the issue here, PS+ is probably the correct choice, tons of free stuff and discounts and whatnot.

X-Com is awesome though, and lengthy.

I haven't played Far Cry 3 yet, so Dishonored, easily.
