    Alone in the Dark is only game of those I have not played. I heard it have very bad controls.

    BioShock, it's fun but very short compared to Oblivion or Mass Effect.

    I your looking for rpg, then Oblivion or Mass Effect (both are very good games).

    BioShock, well, looks good, good story, etc, etc... But as I said, it's short and about zero replay value. FPS with few rpg elements added to that game. Some people have said this was best game when it was released but imo it was good fps, defo not game of a year.

    Oblivion, there are sh*t loads of texture packs, mods, items, quests and all kind of stuff for this game. You'll spend much time with this even without mods and mods just add all kind of good stuff to this game.

    Mass Effect, great story, not the best graphics around but looks decent. Fun to play and this has some replay value, take different kind of character and different choices. You wont be interested to investigate whole galaxy many times but first time without a problem.

    What a choice! Depends on what you like best:

    Oblivion = open ended RPG, with mods it can be an extremely good game. Without mods its just..nice. So be prepared to do some research on what mods to use.
    Mass Effect = story driven RPG. Great graphics and story, but pretty linear.
    Bioshock = Good FPS with minor rpg elements (leveling your weapon and hacking skills) limited replayablility
    Alone in the Dark = crap

    I'd go for Oblivion just due to the massive possible playtime. I just finished re-installing it and downloading ~2gigs of mods which I'm gonna have fun installing... I did have a few issues with it when I played it on my old computer, but I'm hoping those were just due to lag. Mass Effect is pretty good if you can pick it up cheap, it's good for a run through but I can't bring myself to play it again straight away.

    Bioshock bored me to tears. I still don't get why people like it so much and I didn't finish it.

    Oblivion is such a great game. Get the pack that has both Oblivion and Shivering Isles. For me, it's got infinite replay and with mods you can do just about anything you want. To this day I still come up with new character build ideas, download a few mods to make it happen, then go to town.

    Edit: Hell, I'd still be playing Daggerfall if I could. It had even more character build options and old school charm. TES is just such an awesome series with serious bang for your buck.

    Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeek. I keeel you !

    Anyway, I'd go for Oblivion considering replayability etc. But very very honestly, I think BioShock is the best game on that list. It has zero replayability, but the sheer quality of that relatively short single player campaign is worth the money.
    What a game... (Tries to stop himself from going on and on about how good bioshock is)

    Eh I'd definitely say pick between mass effect and bioshock (though i haven't personally played alone in the dark), oblivion is... well I have mixed feelings about oblivion. First of all I have spent many, many hours on it, but second of all I really didn't enjoy most of those hours very much, I just felt compelled to complete it somehow.

    But in all honesty it really is kind of ****, it has many very serious problems that my man yahtzee can tell you better than I can: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/75-Oblivion

    Both mass effect and bioshock are excellent imo, I'd tend to lean towards recommending bioshock as mass effect, though one of my favorite games ever, is not for everyone, mostly because it's really pretty nerdy. honestly, theres so much backstory and depth of dialogue and such that i really get off on, but i realize could be very boring. Bioshock, on the other hand, is something I can pretty much guarantee you'll enjoy.

    Oblivion has lots and lots of content, but I find myself not wanting to explore said content, If it's a choice between one of those two and oblivion, get one of those two. or **** it and get fallout 3! =-]

    tough one, i'd personally go with Oblivion because you get your money worth and the experience is entertaining plus you can Mod it do death.

    second choice Bioshock.

    You won't find a better 20$ game than mass effect.

    It's between oblivion and mass effect imo, both are great but vastly different, you'll need to do some research but in terms of the time you'll be spending on each game, oblivion (especially once you start modding) will take up many more hours of your time. I would however come back and play mass effect too.
