Binary Domain
+ heard it's an underrated hidden gem
+ story looks very interesting
+ decent length (8-10 hrs)
- thought the demo was above average

Vanquish
+ looks visually awesome
+ demo was fun (got my butt kicked though)
- heard it's very short (about 6 hrs)

Dead Island
+ I like zombies
+ seems like a fairly length game
+ I enjoyed L4D
Is there splitscreen co-op?

I voted Binary Domain since I think it's the best of the three. However, Dead Island does have a sequel coming out soon-ish and you can import your old Dead Island character, with all his levels and such intact, into the new game. Don't think Dead Island has split-screen, though, only Online and LAN co-op.

Vanquish is alright, but to me it just seems a bit too "arcadey" for my tastes. You can probably find it somewhere for dirt-cheap though, if you really want to pick it up. I frequently see a few copies floating around the cheap bins at Wal-Mart for maybe $10-$20.

It's a tough call between Vanquish and Binary Domain....They both rank as two of my favorite games this gen! I'd give the slight edge to Vanquish, but they are two completely different games that both deserve to be played.

Can't really go wrong witht he first two choices. I got bored with Dead Island. And really it's just a loot game and if that was something that interested you I would point you to Borderlands 2 which is supieror in every way.

even if I like zombie killing?

Also, I'm asking to choose between the 3 because each sells for $12, so prices between them don't matter to me.

Don't think of Vanquish as a short game, think of it as a long orgasm.

Vanquish. It's short but sweet. Not as short as most people make out though as all shooters are usually short anyway.

If you got your butt kicked on the vanqush demo you can expect alot more than just 6 hours of play.

Vanquish is the perfect length. If it was any longer, all the excitement would start taking years of your life.

Binary Domain does interesting stuff character wise, but the gameplay just isn't there.

Dead Island, haha, no.
