This poll is now closed.
So assuming that EA doesn't add any more Sims expansions or Crysis 3 to the bundle, what do you think I should get? I only have money for one of the above situations at the moment, and I have an equal desire to play both Sims and Crysis 3. Feel free to explain your vote.

Also note that I already own Crysis 1 and 2 (they're even on Origin), so I won't be picking up Crysis 3 Digital Deluxe. I'm not considering getting the World Adventures/Generations bundle because 1)I want University and Ambitions more and 2)It's not on sale, so I can buy it later.

No Origin/EA hate please. I'm sick of it.

Leaning towards the sims expansion since I can't be bothered by FPS and I have all the expansions currently available (thanks to my sister who loves the game).

University adds a sort of a location like the places in world adventures but you are only there for the duration of the period that you are attending classes. Also getting a degree adds more jobs you could access or higher pay or something and some Nerd/jock abilities and whatnot (I haven't played university expansion yet). I guess it also adds the ability for you to get a roommate and split the rent or even get some tenants.

Ambitions also adds a lot since it adds professions which are hands-on jobs and the more you work the more you will earn compared to the fixed amounts paid in normal career.

The Sims expansions have apparently been cheaper before, and frankly from what I can see of them, they don't add much each. So I'd say go with Crysis. A whole game as opposed to a few extra bits to an on-going one.

Sims of course! Crysis 3 is just another bland, boring FPS that fails to have the quality and fun factor of the first Crysis.

Well with Sims you're getting an expansion for a series that's atleast good-ok as the series went on. Crysis 3 is just a shadow of its predecessors even more so than Crysis 2 which was just a console friendly version of Crysis.

Sims obviously. It will last you for a long time and it more fun than Crysis 3. Outside the pretty visuals, Crysis 3 doesn't offer anything new. It's your basic shooter that lasts for about 6 hours.

one thing that erks me about the sims 3 is that the Bed glitch........broke the game for me.......EA stop releasing expansions/DLC until you fix the core game
