360 game recommendations...

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - 360 game recommendations...

Ok, so if all goes to plan - I'll be getting a 360 (my mates he is selling to me - with a 6-12 month warranty) on the weekend.

I get to choose two of his games as part of the package - I don't know exactly which ones he has yet (he does have Mass Effect, and I will be getting that).


What games should I be looking out for, and which shouldn't I?

 - I like adventure/RPG/platformers titles

 - I dislike racers, shooters/FPS titles, "grunt" action games


If I had to choose between Oblivion, Lost Odyssey or Eternal Sonata - which should I get? I tend to prefer "harder core" RPGs (harder ones for sure). I might be able to grab one, and borrow a couple of others.

Is Assassins Creed worth it? (or am I better off borrowing it, or renting it?) - not sure if he has it anyway.

Last Remnant(RPG)
Fallout 3(Action RPG)
Fable II(Action RPG)
Too Human(Action RPG)
Castlevania( Platformer RPG)

Assasins creed is worth it , will take you more than a few days to discover everything so best to buy it 2nd hand then just sell it on at a later date..... in terms of platformers..... if you never played it back in the day then Origional N64 version of Banjo and Kazooie is coming to xbox live arcade soon.... (Banjo scored huge and is still as good as any of the modern platformers out there if not better).........

Three gaming companies i will respect forever............. SEGA, Capcom, Nintendo.

Of the RPG's you listed I've only played Lost Odyssey, but it doesn't disappoint.

Lost Odyssey is surprsingly good. The story is fairly good and the combat system is amazing. I say get it out of the three you listed.

Starcraft 2 ID: Gnizmo 229

If u hate shooters, ur missing out on "Halo 3" and "Gears of War"

Otherwise, GTA4 is a mix shooter/adventure
Elder Scrolls 4 is a very nice RPG, I would get that

Fable 2 and Fallout 3 are coming out in a few months, I'd pick those up.

Above I'm a proud Gran Turismo fan, not a Sony fanboy, and now a proud 360 owner, but sharing xbox live accts ATM

End of 2009 Predictions (made Jan 1, 2009): My predictions were pretty accurate, the 360 was over and the Wii was just under.

Wii: 65 mil (yea I'm crazy) 360: 35 mil (its getting there) PS3: 30 mil (the slim better do well)

End of 2010 Predictions (made Jan 7, 2010):

Wii: 81 mil  360: 47 mil PS3: 45 mil

Dead Rising!

I'd get eternal sonata, but Lost Odyssey is also a good choice. Pick the one that targets you more.
