    I’m not really up on my 360 games so I’m just wondering if any people out there can suggest some good ones to me?

    My two favourite games are Fable and Oblivion so ideally suggestions would be similar kind of games

    Thanks Scott:thumbsup:

    Just Cause
    Orange Box

    Both good, otherwise depends on what else you are into, fighting, racing etc.

    So are you into RPGs ? If so Grab Mass Effect you will be playing it for hours,

    Shooters : COD4 , Gears of War and HALO3 are the top shooters

    Mass Effect and BioShock would be my two suggestions. Two of the best games of 2007.

    I agree with the above recommendations, especially COD 4 and The Orange Box!

    One game I loved playing on my 360 was Dead Rising. Its on the classics label now and can be found quiet cheaply.

    Its a sandbox game set in a shopping mall with zombies. Think Dawn of the Dead and you wont be too far away!

    Most items in the mall can be used and picked up as weapons. There are rpg elements in the game too such as levelling up your character and learning new fighting moves to fight the zombie hordes.

    You are a photographer with the game set along a time line. The clock is always ticking and you must be at certain places in the mall at certain times to trigger events etc. This feature adds to the suspense and excitement.

    There is loads to do in the game, lots of optional 'side quests' such as rescuing survivors etc and multiple endings depending on your actions in game - offering good replay value.

    I personally haven't played anything else like it

    Think there's a demo on marketplace too if you feel like trying it out.

    i must admit im not a big fan of FPS

    i've seen the trailer for assasins creed, and it certainly caught my eye

    is it worth getting?

    if you fancy something that you could get cheap and find quite engrossing - then condemned is a good shout. Very atmospheric.

    I see u are not really FPS fan, and the guys have already recommended Mass Effect which I think is the genre are after. You didnt mention sports games so....

    If you like RTS games - BFME is good (on pc - I think its same on 360).

    tbh i dont think i have given them a proper go, i've played halo and COD2 and GOW (only for about 10 mins) but running round shooting things just didnt appeal to me.

    i prefer my games to be a bit slower paced where i can take my time and explore, which is why i love fable and oblivion

    yeah i've heard about condemned but just never got round to getting it, probably too scared!!

    my sports games usually start and finish with pro evo (which is in need of an overhaul after this years attempt)
    i used to enjoy playing tiger woods before it got easy and they ruined it

    BFME - battle for middle earth?? im a lotr fan so i'll have to hunt this one out too

    thanks for all your suggestions :smashin: which is just what i need when im trying to save up for a house, the girlfirend's going to kill me!! lol
