Okay so my parents just called me and made me chose RE5 or Halo wars i chose halo wars was that a good decision? OR should i have picked another game?

I haven't played either of those, but if I were to choose, I would choose Halo Wars. I hear a lot of people were disappointed with RE5, but Halo Wars is a solid game.

So long as you're fine with an MP-only game once you've finished the SP campaign I guess? And we all know how long MP games stay popular on Live! right? And no, this isn't CoD4-style of popularity as it's still an RTS game.

I liked RE5 personally and has re-playability to an extent. Both can suffer the same
burn out effect of getting bored with the game I suppose? I just personally wasn't that impressed with HW, but then again I've never been a real big RTS fan in the first place.

I personaly would of chose RE5. But if you like RTS then you can't go wrong with Halo Wars.

Should've picked RE5. Even my friends who are Halo nuts and love RTS games were disappointed with Halo Wars. But that could just be them. And I didn't even want to play Halo Wars. So for me it would have definitely been RE5 in a heartbeat.

Well personaly i would pick Halo Wars

I havent heard very many good things about RE5

Halo Wars i have heard alot of people saying they love it

I wouldn't pick RE5 until they fixed their MP which is the biggest con.

Yea, i would have picked Resident evil 5.
Although i feel like it doesn't even matter now because you already made your choice.

i just got halo wars and i like it so far. And i wont be getting RE5 at all just because of the con they are trying to pull by making people pay money for a multiplayer mode (i may rent it eventually though).

Like both a lot, but RE5 has a lot more replayability. Haven't played Halo Wars since I beat it, but RE5 I've gone back to many times.
