Would You Rather ... The Other Guys Edition

In our continuing effort to bring you fresh and interesting content, X3F presents Would You Rather ... a weekly feature that asks you the hard questions. The point? If you had to choose one or the other, which would you go for?

Now that we got that other game out of our system, we look to the future of sandbox adventures. Two titles stick out in our minds as potential GTA-killers but we're torn on which one to grab. Pretending you'd only get one of the following titles, would you go for the sequel to a pretty solid GTA-clone from look, feel and execution in Saints Row 2 or the sequel of a more original GTA-clone in the form of 1940s based Mafia II?

Feel free to share the reasons for your vote in the comments. We'll share the results of the poll during the next edition of Would You Rather ... which hits X3F every Wednesday.

Last weeks WUR results can be find after the jump ... steal this info!

Mafia II: Don't fuggetabout these 5 new screens

For those of you who are interesting in exploring a world during the days of prohibition (in the prequel to the main story) and the Brooklyn Dodgers, comes the 2K Czech developed sequel; Mafia II. Taking place between the 1940s to 1950s and set in fictional Empire City, Mafia II follows the story of Vito. After returning from World War II, where he enlists to run away from robbery charges, Vito meets up with old friends to join in the ranks of la cosa nostra. The game looks more and more polished every time we see it and we think it could be a refreshing shot in the arm after nearly a year of that other sandbox game when it hits at the end of 2008.
