edit: Verno...I am playing TL2 and GW2 a lot, and enjoying them. I haven't picked up BL2 or XCOM yet. Borderlands was "meh" to me, mainly because I found the inventory system infuriating, I actually liked many other aspects of the game. I was a huge fan of the first 2 XCOM games, not so much a fan of any since then. your opinion...BL2 or XCOM next? I will be buying both, the question is which one gets bought on a Steam sale or in a GOTY bundle.

I'd say XCOM. Dishonored is pretty great too BTW. XCOM is one of those games you can pick up and play obsessively or just fit in a game here and there. BL2 is a big time commitment, like 30-40ish hours if you don't do a lot of the time padding stuff. The inventory system in BL2 is a bit of a scroll happy downgrade surprisingly, though other aspects of the UI have been relatively improved. Plus if you wait awhile you can probably just get BL2 cheap with some DLC that will fix some of the games major annoyances.

The inventory system got worse?! Fuck that. Decision made. Thanks! As for Dishonored, I have watched some gameplay videos, and it does indeed look fun, but my backlog is huge. It looks good enough to play, but not good enough to jump ahead of my backlog. Most likely getting that one on sale as well.

From someone who picked up all 3, I'm enjoying Xcom more. Granted I've only played Dishonored for about an hour or so, tough to really judge it, I think it's going to be alot of fun but it feels pretty samey to most fps games out there, although I give it major major props for having so many different ways to tackle objectives. That's great. It's like a cross between Dues Ex and Bioshock in how it feels imo.

BL2 is good too, though it's one of those games that half way through I was just waiting for it to be over. It started to feel really grindy about 3/4th of the way through.
