Need help choosing: Binary Domain, Vanquish, or Dead Island

Out of the 3, the only one I really dislike is dead island. The game is so ridiculous, you feel like you're abusing the zombies (you basically kick them till they fall, then kick them some more until they die, all while they're screaming. You don't even need weapons, melee or otherwise for a good part of the game). I can safely recommend any of the other 2 though.
If waving goodbye to your turds as they flush is wrong, I don't want to be right.

I have all three, love all three, dead island def gives you more bang for your buck. Despite what some say it was a really good game.

yu cant go wrong with any of those three imo

If you want to kill zombies Yakuza Dead Souls would be a better option then Dead Island, voted for Vanquish because I haven't played Binary Domain yet but I'm waiting on it shipping to me

I read Yakuza DS's controls are awful :(
which I really hope isn't true seeing how I love Yakuza 3, planning on buying 4 and hopefully 5

Yakuza Dead Souls controls are fun its a little awkward at first but its thrilling to quickly lock on to enemies and shoot their heads off well worth the 20 I paid for it

What is the point of this? BD + Vanquish can be gotten together for $20 (or less) ... And original Dead Island now is probably $10~ as well... oh well

All are very good games.
But in all honesty, Dead Island isn't anything like Binary Domain or Vanquish.

Dead Island = FPS/RPG hybrid (similar to Borderlands) with a heavy emphasis on melee combat.

Binary Domain = 3rd-person shooter
Vanquish = 3rd-Person shooter

Get whichever one appeals to you most.

I own all three, and I like them all.
Personally, I like Dead Island most, followed by Binary Domain, followed by Vanquish.

All of them have their respective advantages & disadvantages....

Dead Island
+ Longest play-time (25 +/- hours)
+ Most replay value
+ More diverse & varied
+ very good & bloody combat (very satisfying)
+ body specific damage (can break limbs or cut them off completely, depending on weapon type used)
- occasional frame-rate dips
- not much story
- you may not like its style

Binary Domain
+ good length (12 hours)
+ good shooting action
+ good voice acting
+ can swap up team members
+ satisfying ending (watch after credits)
+ good story
+ robot damage when you shoot
+ good enemy ai
- gets repetitive towards end
- some bosses are bullet sponges

+ fast paced shooting combat
+ Japanese style
+ good cast of characters
+ great robot design
+ good/ funny (corny) dialog
- very short (6 +/- hours)
- convoluted story
- very little replay value
- dumb enemy ai

ugh, very disappointing seeing the flaws (freezing, save glitch, framrate drops) on the DI board... :(

^ All of which are greatly over-exaggerated
Some people don't want anyone else to experience the game, so they over-exaggerate problems to talk people out of buying.

The game did have some bugs, but all of which have been patched.
frame-rate dips aren't that bad. Far Cry 3 & Fallout & Skyrim are much worse.
Its an open world game, what do you expect ?

If you get the regular version, simply down-load latest patches, which fix all issues.
If you buy the GotY edition, it has all the patches on the disc.

Seriously, just go to youtube and check out game-play footage of all games, and decide for yourself.

DI is one of the best co-op games I've played. Don't listen to the haters.

What co-op games have you played exactly? Just Twin Caliber and Dead Island? Because Dead Island is a horrible glitchy, badly ported piece of $#!& by a third-rate $#"*^y developer that well deserves all of its haters and a lot more for all the people that bought it because of that one trailer that was popular.

People shouldn't be allowed to use the forums if they have bad taste in games, imagine if someone listened to some of the people and spent their hard earned dollars on this garbage.

And to the other guy that's a straight up lie that "all bugs have been patched" and you know it.
