What story do you guys think would be more interesting?

1. An augmented reality detective tournament where your glasses allow you to see more aspects of a crime scene than normal, but if a player makes a final judgement that proves to be false then they lose a limb, and this persists until the last person remains. (There will be some reason they can't leave - not decided yet).

2. I've worked more on this one, but the back-story will eventually link to reptilians. These aliens that according to conspiracy created humans. They created a massive stone and buried it far underground, and one day in a digging experiment it was hit, causing the primary function to activate pushing the drill out of the ground the dispersing several fragments around the world. These fragments grant any power to any individual that possesses one, but the condition is that the stone must stay in direct contact with the skin. However, if they don't know how to control a power and accidentally think of another power than it will switch to that power, but there a user can only switch powers once every 20 seconds for each stone they possess. Later people will figure out how to lock powers in, and some will even imbed stones into their body so that they can't be easily stolen. The setting will be that there is a one world government who has collected most of these stones and are using them for their express purposes, and the antagonist goal will be to stop them, but near the end he realizes that his brother (who he never met until then due to separation) holds a very high rank with the government and shares their same ideals, making him an excellent late story antagonist.

I would go either way
if you want your plot to be easily comprehended I would use the second one, note that unless this is written correctly the plot can become too mainstream and predictable. Example, ecchi plots ( the female always lives within close proximity of the female or vise versa and the female forces her way into his life in some way or another

another example: The hidden organization theory, you used this to some extent in your plot, I would suggest making it not one organization but two so the protagonist will eventually have to pick a side, this can enhance character development, and decisions forcing the character to either go to one side or follow his own beliefs, Example: Tokyo ghoul, kaneki has to choose between humans or ghouls ...... and is faced with the conflict that each opposing side presents to the other....

The first plots really good i would assume you would have to lay more frame work, as it pertains to the environment of the story, and the decisions of the characters and why seeing as this is a detective plot. Also one disadvantage or advantage the second one has is though it is different it is a plot within a plot, like detective conan, or magic kaito, and death parade, this story would switch the attention back and forth from the main story and the side stories of the plot making every episode seem like an accumulation of filler episodes which each in their own way add to the main plot development

overall if you're trying to make something that will impact your audience the first one would be your best bet , it'll just be more work, a lot more work.........

first idea.. I dont understand the loss of limb thing, why is that necessary?

second idea.. powers sounds way too complicated, which means you yourself would have to make sure no inconsistencies happen with these powers throughout the story because if you can't then readers will just throw it away as being sloppy.

also lose the brother thing, so cliche.
