    Since I have today off, am pretty bored, and get paid this week, I think I'm gonna go out and buy a new video juego. But right now, I'm torn between 3 options-- Unreal Tournament III (PS3), Uncharted (PS3) and Orange Box (PC). Right now, I'm leaning towards UT3, but I've been wanting Uncharted for a while now, and I feel like I could use a new single-player game. I probably am going to wait a little longer to get Orange Box, because believe it or not, I still haven't beaten the original Half-Life 2. Also, I think my computer needs more RAM, since sometimes HL2 gets choppy. In any case, I can hold out a bit longer without it, especially since my brother already has it on his laptop (though it'd be cool to play Team Fortress II with him sometime).

    So, of the options that I currently am eying, what should I go with?

    Orange Box. Better quality, better value for your money.

    Screw UT.
    Uncharted or TOB are great options.

    If you want a MP game, dont get UT3 yet, get Orange Box.

    Actually, screw both UT and Uncharted right now. Orange Box has the best single and multiplayer gaming out right now.

    If I don't buy Unreal Tournament 3, it'll be because I'm waiting for more mods and user maps to become availible. Since I haven't beaten Half-Life 2 yet, I think I should hold off on Orange Box until I do. That pretty much narrows it down to Uncharted, which I think would be a pretty good choice ATM.

    I already own Half-Life 2. And I'd feel dumb if I started playing Episode 1 or 2 without beating it first.

    Thats why I said dont buy it yet.

    You know that if you buy Orange Box via steam, you could give the HL2 part to someone else, maybe a non gamer friend to get them into gaming....

    Yeah I know, but one of the big reasons I want Orange Box is because of the additional HL2 episodes, and I wouldn't want to play those until I beat HL2. Portal and TF2 are cool as well, but for me the real meat of the box would be the new HL episodes. So I think I'm gonna go with Uncharted.

    Well, Portal was my favorite game of last year. TF2 is more addicting than CoD4 online. Episodes 1 and 2 are amazing.

    Obviously, my suggestion is TOB.

    As much as I hate to endorse anything Half-Life 2 related, The Orange Box is the best value. Uncharted is six hours long and UTIII offers nothing except MP.

    6? Try average 8-10. Id have recomended Orange Box too except he doesnt seem likely to play it at the moment since he still has yet to complete HL2. Id just wait to get OB until he beats HL2, whenever he plans on that. Hopefully it will have gone down in price or some deal pops up. As of right now, Uncharted seems teh best fit for him and thats what he went with
