I just got a new roommate who owns an Xbox 360 and was shocked and surprised to find out he owned no shooters: no Halo, no Gears, no Bioshock, no COD4 and so on. Now, normally the first thing i would think is that a person who doesnt own even one of these fantastic shooters for the X360 was just simply not video game savvy (and was perhaps given it as a gift or bought it just for Madden), but the thing is is that his collection can still be considered on the cutting edge and inlcudes some big critical hits. He has the Elite with a wifi adapter and HDDVD drive, Assassins' Creed, Forza Motorsport II, GH II and III, and last but not least the complete Rockband set-up.
Now, my question to other X360 owners out there is, do any of you have similar gaming tastes? Is there anybody else out there who doesnt even own one shooter for the system? I pretty much assumed that most 360 owners eat up this kind of stuff (eg Halo 3s attach rate), but am welcome to be proved wrong. If I had to venture a guess, I'd still assume that my roommate is still mostly an anomoly in America, but that some European 360 owners may be closer to his tastes. What do you all think?
