    Dead Space or Black Ops II?

    I am about 1-2 weeks from wrapping up MOH: Warfighter Plat and wanted to get some feedback and opinions on my next game.

    Choices:

    Dead Space 2 (Plat Dead Space 1)
    Dead Space Extraction
    Black Ops 2 (Plat - Black Ops 1, MW2, MW3, Killzone 3, MOH (2010), and soon MOH: Warfighter)
    Trine 1 and 2

    I dont have a ton of time to play (maybe 5-10 hrs/wk) and I'm leaning towards the Dead Space Series (I already own Dead Space 2/Extraction but dont own BO2 or Trine).

    I'm actually probably more excited for Dead Space 3 and GOW in 2013 and wanted to get some thoughts on which games I should go with listed above. Heres the kicker, I'm enticed to go with Dead Space because I absolutely loved the first one however I also like the interaction with MP in FPS and espically like zombies although I'm wondering if I might be slightly getting burnt after spending about 40 hrs on MOH Warfighter MP.

    Thoughts from those that have played the above?

    You have to play Dead Space 2, it's such an amazing game! You'll love it. And I can't wait for Dead Space 3 either, I have it pre-ordered.

    Black Ops 2 is awesome too, they changed a lot of things from the previous COD's.

    Trophies should never be a reason to play a game.

    I would have to go with Dead Space 2. Such a great game, and I dont play CoD games.

    Ok, I am sold on Dead Space.

    Last question, I played Dead Space 1, do I play extraction or Dead Space 2 first?

    I would play Dead Space 2 first as it continues Issac's story, the Extraction as it tell you the events that lead up to now. The choice is yours though.

    You made a great choice!

    Extraction takes place before the events of Dead Space so I don't think it matters.

    Dead Space and play Extraction first, just to get it out of the way. And just know, since you only play 5-10 hours a week, trying to plat Dead Space 2 will be difficult to do when playing it on the Hardcore difficulty. You need to dedicate at least 3-4 hours at a time playing it, and that's if you don't screw up at all.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.

    I like Call of Duty better than Dead Space, but you don't have Black Ops II yet, nor do you have the time you said, so I would say Dead Space seeing as how it is probably shorter. The campaign isn't that long.

    honestly i would skip Extraction all together unless you just like on rail shooters. the story is weak for a dead space game and isn't that enjoyable.

    A rail shooter is a type of action-based video game. In a rail shooter the player control is limited to directing where to fire a virtual gun or move their avatar around the screen; the player does not control the path their avatar takes from the start to the end (although they may be able to pause that movement), as if the player is tied to a rail like a roller coaster.
    Category:Rail shooters - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    baisclly you don't have controll over your character other than maybe choosing a path every so often. you will use the move controller or a cross hair controlled by the dualshock to aim and kill things on the screen. that's about the only contorl you have is where to aim. the events are prescritped and all you do is shoot.

    With that sort of time available weekly, I would have taken a week to bang out Trine 2 really quickly. You'll still have plenty of time to get into Dead Space quickly, but it'll give you another platinum to rest your head.
