Okay, some time by mid October I'll have bought Gears of War 3 and Dues Ex: Human Revolution. However, I'm having some difficulty deciding which one to buy FIRST. I don't have the money to buy either one of them right now, but i will by the time Gears comes out on the 20th. 
 
SO
 
I decided to ask a bunch of random internet strangers which game i should buy first. What do you guys think?

Do you want a story/stealth focused RPG, or a third person shooter?  
 
If it helps, Deus Ex can last upwards of 30-ish hours in one playthrough, whereas Gears will probably be closer to 10-ish. But that has multiplayer, which Deus Ex does not.

#4 Posted by wh1terav3n (656 posts) -

Those are pretty different games there. Depends on how much you enjoy third person cover-based multiplayer shooting compared to a first person shooter RPG with branching paths and no multiplayer. Personally, I'm terrible at Gears multi and don't like it much so I'd go with DEHR

And will you play gears of war multiplayer? 
 I think if you'll play and enjoy the multiplayer I would buy Gears of War first because Deus Ex may be less expansive by october and if you are putting time into the multiplayer it's a lot of gameplay.

They are two vastly different games, but my personal choice would be Deus Ex (three times over). I personally find the Gears of War games to be terribly boring and predictable.

#7 Posted by pornstorestiffi (4909 posts) -

Deus Ex Human Revolution. If you already played Gears 1 and 2.

#8 Posted by MideonNViscera (2257 posts) -

Which to buy first? Definitely Gears, just cause multiplayer games are always more exciting at release, and slowly dwindle. With SP games it hardly matters at all, unless it's so huge that EVERYBODY is talking about it, but that is not Deus Ex haha

#9 Posted by TheDudeOfGaming (6078 posts) -

Get both, but if you can only get one I'd recommend Deus Ex, but that's just me.

#10 Posted by BrainSpecialist (554 posts) -

@ninjadude853: Oh man, Gears. Totally Gears. In terms of a game that isn't horribly flawed, will actually work, is worth replaying more than once, and will have an interesting story not played out in hammy poorly-rendered cutscenes, Gears.

Deus later, when it's dropped at least half its price. Wait about two/three months.

DUDE BUY GEARS OF WAR! 
Multiplayer is going to be amazing. 
Singleplayer has co op.
Must have game.  People who dislike gears are the same people that get shot up by the shotgun everytime they spawn.  
#12 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18955 posts) -

Like others said, do you want a long story-based RPG shooter with immense focus on stealth gameplay, or a third person locust shooter with deathmatch multiplayer?

How/why is that? I'm not saying it won't be amazing, i'm asking, how/why will it be?
#13 Posted by ninjadude853 (44 posts) -

Like i said, I'm going to get both by the end of October. And it probably should be Gears because my Gold membership runs out on October 9th. But i'm kind of sick of shooters. Not sick enough that i don't want to get the game, but sick enough that i kind of want to play the stealth rpg more.  I also don't want to play Dues right before i get the new Assassins Creed, because i don't like to play two similar games in a row. Not that Dues and Creed are overly similar, but both have a focus on stealth, which i enjoy, but after spending 30 plus hours doing that on Dues, I'll probably want to spend a couple of weeks shooting stuff and blowing shit up.
 
Yeah, it's probably gonna be Dues Ex.

#14 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

Deus Ex, judging from the beta Gears of War 3 is just the second game, multiplayer is almost identical which is a big problem. It's a yawnfest...

I'm sure Gears of War 3 will have a decent enough campaign but probably only around 7 hours or something.

#15 Posted by DeanoXD (608 posts) -

if i was in the position of having to choose, Gears 3 all the way. i have finished Deus EX and i think Gears 3 will be a better game over all.

If you live in the US you might be interested to know that Deus Ex is $35 next week at Toys R Us. I'd jump on that.

I played Gears 1 and 2, and i have no intention on buying the third one. I never played Gears for the story. And i don't give two shits about the bleak characters. That said, those games are probably some of the best co-op games out there. 
 
So if he want a mediocre story, he should get Gears 3 by all means. But if he wan't something slightly deeper to sink into, DX:HR is the winner.

I don't know if it was announced or just posted by someone who works there and saw next week's ad already. The site is very trustworthy for stuff like that and since the thread is stickied the user who posted is probably reliable.
#23 Posted by probablytuna (3533 posts) -

It really depends on what type of gameplay you prefer... Deus Ex would be my choice.

Oh Deus Ex is far more different then Assassin's Creed. Staying out in the open will get you killed in Deus Ex VERY quickly. In Assassin's Creed, its easy to just quickly go and stab the faces of dudes one after another. Deus Ex can be played like a shooter though so you might have to get used to that.

If this is true, i should be able to get both in the next two weeks. Dues at Toys R Us, and Gears when it comes out. Sweet.
#26 Posted by shiptoncraig (149 posts) -

I'd pick Gears 3.  Then again, I'm still playing Gears 2 after almost 3 years and found the beta to outshine Gears 2 multiplayer in all respects, so I'm bias :P.

Yup, confirmed. You can see the ad for the week starting tomorrow here. 9/11 ad. It's on page 3 in the lower left.

Good lad, the feeling when you blast 3 or 4 guys with a shotgun to bits while rolling around and dodging bullets is worth the pricetag. 
That's what you want from Gears, get good at it, and kill the countless number of noobs.

It starts tomorrow!?! AWESOME. I have enough cash! For that and the X men First Class they also have on sale. And i'll totally be able to buy Gears 3 when it comes out. 
 
THANK YOU. I never would have found this on my own.
#30 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8698 posts) -

Gears 3 can potentially give you more playtime in the long run with the co op/multiplayer but Deus Ex is a great experience.
 
Personally I (probably) prefer Gears over Deus, I'm done with Deus now and have no intention of ever touching it again.

I'm glad I could help. I try to be a savvy consumer and keep up with these sales. Luckily I happened to see your thread.

That does sound like a lot of fun, but it also sounds like it gets boring after the first 2 hours. 
I rolled around the maps, dodging bullets and blasting "noobs", so what now?

Mass Effect 3, because you like Garrus.

I played that GOW3 beta for longer then I have most multiplayer games.

I didn't get bored.

AHHHHH THE HYPE

That´s it. What else do you need? 
It's about having fun and gears 3 delivers. The beta was great. Never got bored. 
But you gotta get good at it. F ing noobs complained to much after gears 1 and look what happend to the sad piece of shit that is gears 2. 
Now gears 3 is going to bring the series back to its former glory.

Considering the fact that there are two teams of people, I need the game to utilize the existence of these two groups and integrate work that we can accomplish as a team, you know, teamwork. It's such a shame and a waste for me to be on a team with other people and not use that in some way. It's like "There's 10 or 20 people on each team and.. that's it. it's like deathmatch, except you're divided into two teams".
 
Also, considering the fact that video games are evolving and getting bigger in every way, I'd imagine a multiplayer game might try to emulate the goodness that is singleplayer, by giving me big detailed maps rather than a couple of closed off blocks to run around. Which naturally necessitates bigger numbers of people which, like i said, should be something a triple-A 2011 game strives to provide.

Never cared for Gears multi-player so I'm going with Deus Ex.  Getting it
end of Sept on my bday.  I can wait on Gears 3 for later.  The first one
was great, but never got the same fever for Gears 2 & haven't even
completed it yet.  At this point, I feel I need to go back & play Gears 1
just to remember what it was all about & not feel disjointed.

#43 Posted by TheHT (10876 posts) -

If you've played Gears 1 and 2 and enjoyed them I'd probably get that first.
 
Then again, I enjoyed Uncharted 1 and 2 and am probably gonna get Skyrim first... ah whatever, those are isolated stories. Gears is a continuous trilogy right? I'd go for that first.

#44 Posted by BUCK3TM4N (549 posts) -

if you like multiplayer then gears 3

#45 Edited by louiedog (2333 posts) -

Since this thread popped back up I guess I should mention that Amazon price matched Toys R Us. Deus Ex: HR is $35 there as well. link

#46 Posted by TheKing (822 posts) -

If you're into the multiplayer then Gears 3 no question.

#47 Posted by bybeach (4724 posts) -

It's a toss. I'd get Deus Ex H.R. first, but I only play single player. Nor am I trying to fool anyone, I'm getting Gears3 also. But then, I'm also getting MW3 when it births, hehaha snerk. Finish another Fight! Actually I think this Gears may have the story...

#48 Posted by wefwefasdf (6729 posts) -

Deus Ex is $35 over on Amazon for the week. Get it here!

#49 Edited by tunaburn (1883 posts) -
@pornstorestiffi
gears 3 easily has the best multiplayer. and the story isnt that bad. deus replayability is minimal compared to gears of war.
#50 Edited by Afroman269 (7387 posts) -

Get Deus first and play that before Gears 3 comes out.
