    I want to get a game for the Xbox, but I am torn between Mass Effect or CoD 4.

    Which to you think is the best and why?

    CoD4. Mas Effect is great too, but IMO CoD4 is better. Especially since CoD4 has a great online. I do mean great, its probably the most in depth online shooter out there right now.

    Yeah I heard it has overtaken Halo 3 as the most played game on Xbox Live.

    I would personally go with Mass Effect, hands down. Epic story, great conversation system, fun combat

    One of my favorite games

    Do you not pay attention when that happens?

    People I swear.

    It does that when you have a connection interruption, it's not lag, it's your connection getting disrupted by either the host leaving or a lobby closing, or you just having a crappy connection.

    The online for COD is amazing, and personally I enjoyed the campaign. I have not played Mass Effect, but my friend owns both and prefers COD 4. I'm just giving my opinion in favor of COD. Great graphics that make my p.o.s. tv acceptable and still fairly detailed, and on HD it's just beautiful. COD allows you to build up your weapons and it allows you to customize how you play with claymores, rpgs, etc. I would definitely at least recommend taking COD for a test drive for a good week and see where you are with it and whether or not you can give it up.

    Yea, the two times it lagged on CoD4 it was because host dropped or left game. Other than that perfect connection even when my brother is watching videos in youtube.

    They're both great games but if I had to chose one, I'd say COD4.

    they are very different game, I cant say one is better then the other... there not the same type of game.

    If you like epic story, great custom powers and RPG, choose Mass effect, if you prefer shooting at peoples in massive maps with a great upgrading and customizing system, choose COD4.

    there both good. :yesnod:

    If you had ask me between COD4 and Halo3 i would have answer COD4 right away.:lol:

    call of duty 4 will not let you down as far as multi player goes. ill never look at multi player the same way again. if you dont want to ruin all your other game's online multiplayer including halo 3, then dont get cod4. lol

    on the other hand i think im going to be purchasing mass effect really soon. after unreal tournament 3 wich im buying today i think.

    Ok then, I will buy CoD:4 and then Mass Effect at some point as well.

    Also, Unreal Tournament is the pinnacle of FPS's!

    I thought UT3 was gonna be a hit, but it turned out to just be a normal good game with a score usually around 8 instead of 9 like Gears/Halo/CoD4.

    I was thinking of getting UT3 on PS3 but I noticed its run n gun like Halo where you have to shoot them with 50 rounds to kill them. I like it more realistic.

    *Don't get Mass Effect, it has nudity and sex in the game, it's inappropriate!
    [/Sarcasm]

    I think you should get Mass Effect since it has an excellent story-line and of course, XBox Live is fantastic.

    *If you don't know what that means, then watch this video:

    Basically what that one chick was saying was:

    "Broken condoms, Idiots, and Rapists dont cause STDs and Unwanted pregnancies, Video Games cause STDs and Unwanted Pregnancies"

    Those chicks havent even played the game!!! The guy they were talking to was pretty cool and understood how the mechanics of the game worked, but those women were just IDIOTS!!!
