Well, if you're talking the A10 AMD chips, then the IGP in those is significantly better than that in the equivalent Intel Ivy Bridge chips.
Intel's Haswell GPU is still slower than that on the AMD A10 chips, but only by about 4-5%, and given Haswell has a massive performance advantage everywhere else, go Haswell.

And if you consider Crysis as gaming still, so long as you run it at low or medium settings, both chips can run it at acceptable frame rates.
