Fallout 3, CoD 5, or End War?

Looking for a new game between these three. Anyone played all three that might be able to give a good perspective? The trailers for End War look pretty amazing, but haven't heard much about game play.

Opinions???

I actually live in Temple....haven't changed it yet. But I've got furniture to buy so $65 a pop is a bit pricey after a while, LOL

i depends on what type of game you like, end war is a top view scroller, skill type game.. all the others are first person shooter style.. far cry is pretty cool.. fallout 3 is badass if you like a rpg style first person game thats last for tons of hours but takes alot of time to play.

try ign.com <---- usually pretty accurate on ratings

I beat Fallout 3 in 20~ Hours played time, pretty quick.... Think how I built my char helped with that a lot thou....

Haven't been able to make myself pick it back up and do all the side quests etc yet.....

If you played the rest of the series then it is worth picking up for sure, otherwise it may not be for you if you don't plan to do anything but story mode.

You missed a lot of shit.

I have not played all the games mentioned but Fallout 3 is pretty damn good.

you missed the point of the game if you raced to the end,igoring all the hundred plus hours of all the things you can do along the way.

haven't played cod5 or the full version on EndWar but i didn't like the demo. Fallout 3 is a really in depth game and fun to play if you like RPGs. ton of thing to do and well worth the money compared to most current games that are 8hrs long and cost $65

I know. I haven't been able to make my self sit down and play it anymore, my char is pretty strong now and most of the encounters are pretty easy.

I made a evil char and I've been meaning to explore with it, but due to how the game works I'm not sure a evil char can get very far....

I played Fallout 3 a little and it's hard for me to get into it. Kind of starts out pretty slow. I end up playing Resistance 2, which is badass.

The Endwar Demo I played seemed stupid. I guess it is more for those chatty cathy types that use their headsets.
