Hard to tell until they're all out, but based on track records I'd go for Far Cry if I had to choose just one. Hope it's good!

Should you buy Crackdown 3 for $60? No.

However there is a sale going on for game pass ($2 for 2 months). It's bland, but I think it's worth that price if you're curious.

It honestly sounds like Metro might be the only one offering anything potentially interesting, even if it might be less polished than say, Farcry. However, if polished shooter is what you want, you could play Apex Legends.

Metro being the save choice, Far Cry seems more of the same and Crackdown rough all around.

I'm not going to play any of these, but Metro I find the most interesting for sure.

I’m most interested in Crackdown, though it’ll probably be the least well-received of the bunch.

I burned out in Metro in the first game. I loved it until it just felt too oppressive and I quit.

I still have a wrapped copy of Far Cry 4 (yes, 4) from launch...so I’ll probably not play this one for a while.

I think I'll spend an hour or two with Crackdown just to jump around and blow stuff up and then transition into Metro. It might be a bit too early for me to enjoy another Far Cry.

I'd go Metro + game pass, but I didn't like FC5 much.

Skipping all of them myself but if I had to play one it'd definitely be Metro.

Metro absolutely. It's best to just pretend crackdown never existed. Let it die miserably.

Anthem is out today if you have EA access. I'll probably buy Anthem. I'll rent Metro. Crackdown and Far Cry look crappy so I'll skip them.

If someone is dying to play Crackdown 3 then they should probably just get Game Pass.

Come to think I like game-ass games rather than esoteric experiences so I'd go with Far Cry as I honestly enjoyed what I played of 5.

I just got Farcry 5 for $15 on the lunar sale....and at that its a bargain. As much as I would like to dive right into Dawn , I do not think it is worth $40...I would say wait until its $20. Anyway I would go with Dawn....

I have the first Metro un played in my Steam library....

Easy choice is Metro, the Far Cry games are good but if you've played any of them since 3 then you aren't really missing out on anything. Crackdown doesn't seem terrible but just kinda seems...irrelevant, especially in a post Saints Row 4 world.

Metro sounds like the most interesting to me, but everything I've heard about the game so far has been overwhelmingly lukewarm. Far Cry is more Far Cry and Crackdown looks like it already belongs in a bargain bin.

Loved Far Cry 4, but was done with the series after that, and my exitment for Metro faded completely. The buy two get one free offer at Target included some pre orders, so I decided to put my money on DMC, Sekiro, and Steins Gate Elite.

I played and enjoyed both Metro games, but I really wanted something new and different. Steins Gate is totally out of my comfort zone, so I went for that.

I chose far cry and got crackdown on gamepass. I'm looking forward to metro as well but reviews made it sound super janky and I'm also betting that goes on sale before far cry

I'd vote none myself

but if forced to pick from those 3... Metro seems the most interesting to me, at least it's trying something different.

Far Cry is very formulaic these days and Crackdown looks terrible.

If you really want one of the 3, I'd recommend you not getting Crackdown 3. It's fine if it's on your game pass, but it feels old. It's basically Crackdown 1, but it looks better. Given the agility powers, I like it, but I think Saint's Row 3/4 are better.

Whatever you do do not buy Crackdown 3...if you want to play it, sign up for Game Pass for $10 and try it out that way, no reason at all to pay full price (even sale) for the game...
