I personally recommend unity if you plan for some sort of online support, I never found Game Maker's online support sufficient.
Plus you can just host the game online and let the servers handle the data, and it's available cross platform.
Game Maker is awesome if your strictly doing nothing BUT 2D but any 3D effect even Mode7(if done perfectly) will lag the game regardless of system spec..
I was using Game Maker for my RPG but I was creating levels that demanded 3D (generally sky and because it's 3D I was able to add more depth to the level) I was able to get it to render..okay with GM but the quality wasn't up to par with my demands.
Well, the game is 2d I wont need a server, and it will only need to be multiplayer for the breeding and the battling of which is turned based....and I think that 39DLL is way better then the mplay function. If you want to see the kind of game im making i can show you a very buggy no where near done demo..
