    Hi all,

    Well i doubt there is other people who feel the same but as the title states the 360 has kind of gone off the boil for me. I have PGR3,DOA4,Condemned and Kameo and various arcade games but to be honest all the games have lost the appeal for the time being. Now im not slating the console in any way. I think its a great piece of kit and have enjoyed many a night fighting away online on doa4. Dont know what it is but whenever im in the mood for gaming ive started to play some retro games on my laptop instead via emulators and strange as it may sound, im enjoying the games far more. Snes, N64, Megadrive etc. At the moment i cant get off conkers bad fur day and banjo kazooie on the n64. Both great games and more addictive then anything ive come across on the 360 as of yet. I guess im just waiting for some biggie titles to come along to get my interest back. Gears of war, resi 5 etc.
    Just wondered if anyone was going through a similar phase?

    Good god, GRAW comes out tomorrow as does Fight Night 3, Oblivion in a couple of weeks, Far Cry Predator and Tomb Raider not long after that. Surely there's something there to get your interest back! Just get GRAW tomorrow and forget you ever posted this...

    I havn't played on it for about 5 days as my TFT died and I got the 'shakes'.

    New screen comes this morning and I'm straight on the 360. Don't know how you survived for a month:smashin:

    Well yes some of those games look quality and hopefully will get me back into it. Fight night rd 3 will prob do the trick as im a massive fan of the previous games. I just hope its speeded up a tad as i thought the demo was a tad slow albeit amazing gfx!
    Ghost recon i wont bother with as im more a counter strike: source man. Tomb raider might be a let down and oblivion should kick ass!

    I guess what im trying to say is i suppose it doesnt bother me whether the old games or new. My retro phase is coming on strong at the moment. Plus saving for my florida holiday in sept so could do without buying any new games at the moment. So ive stayed clear of all reviews, news etc on new and upcoming 360 games. Bring on resi 5 and halo 3.. thats all i care about! I bought a 360 just for resi 5 to be honest and ill do the same with the ps3 just for metal gear solid 4 and the revolution for its crazy new control scheme!

    well if you had DOA4, COD2, PDZ or any other popular games, and played them then you would realise that was the most ridiculous statement you have ever made, you have PGR3, you cant comment on any other games, or let me guess you played the other games at your mates and you didnt like them

    I'll leave DOA to the kids and Japanese market thanks.

    Played COD2 extensively - what happened to the live part...total disaster.

    PDZ seemed ok.

    So feel free to let me know your better 'live' game than Halo2 :hiya: :hiya:

    LOL good to see my first thread in a few weeks has ended up being quite funny. I must point out though my original argument wasnt meant to be against the 360 and the quality of the games. Recently ive had a death in my Girlfriends family plus been busy at work. Suppose it doesnt help matters that i just got mariokart DS as well and having a threesome on that :D is great... nearly as good as other threesomes! :smashin:

    i dont think ive ever seen as impressive launch line up like there was for the 360. My problem is i have too many games at my disposal. Having practically all games via emulation for most consoles, it well takes me about 3 hours to decide what i fancy playing!
    Anyway must dash got some mariokart ds online to play, but think condemned might be finished over the weekend :thumbsup:

    Been a long time!

    I ended up playing my Mariokart DS more than my 360 too. But Im a big fan of the 360, I think it's a big big step forward in console gaming.

    I'm not really bored of my two games, PDZ and PGR but it is true im looking forward to all the releases this month. My gamerscore is so slow mostly because I dont really have the time to play much, not because im bored of it.

    PDZ still makes me laugh everytime I shoot someone in the back of the head with a shotgun.

    I havent given mine a good rinsing for a long time either.

    Mainly due to not having the time and having other stuff going on.

    However I downloaded Fight Night demo last night and shall be buying that today along with GRAW and MAYBE NHL. :clap:

    Although Next week is Burnout I DEFO will be buying that. So many games so little time :rolleyes:

    I'll probably purchase at least one of the next wave. However I'm largely unimpressed (yet more FPS and driving games!). I also find to much focus on Live play and I'm not really into Live, preferring the single player focus myself. Plus is it just me or are the single player modes a little easy on normal/default? I know I could up the difficulty, however I make the assumption that developers have balanced the game for normal settings.

    I'm giving the 360 a break since i finished ridge racer (phew the last races were develish). Dont like pgr3 and kong just bored me. Right now i'm hooked on psychonaughts and after that i'll tackle shadow of the collossus. But come 24/3/6 I'll be on oblivion solid hopefully for months to come.

    Undecided on GRAW, never was a fan of squad based tactical shooters, i prefer solo gun running personally (before you say it i allready have cod2 and quake4 on pc).

    I only have the 1 game (condemmed) as I didn't really fancy anything else.
    Haven't touched it in about 5 weeks not since I got Ico and SotC.

    But I picked up GR:AW today and have pre-ordered the new Morrowwind.

    I'm looking to finish Resident Evil 4 on staurday and start GR:AW which should hopefully keep me entertained for a few weeks.

    You owe me new keyboard. I spat my tea all over it after reading that :censored: statement. If you enjoy getting screamed at by little american kids then go right ahead keep playing. Personally i prefer to play game that take a little more thought than jump jump, n00b combo, jump jump, sticky granade, jump jump, n00b etc etc

    As stated before, you own the wide variety of ONE game so who are you to coment on the games available at launch!

    Well I have noticed how little I've played with the 360 since I finished COD2. Yes more games are on their way but nothing new in terms of innovation and gameplay - dare I say it, but the Nintendo revolution seems to be going the right way, at least they are trying to be different.

    Better graphics on the 360, yes, but if anyone remembers the classics like Command and Conquer, Red Alert Old skool Capcom games (see Capcom Classics) they will know its all about gameplay and not just how a game looks - though Far Cry is looking better every time I see more screen shots!

    Hmm I must say you don't appear to have actually bought any games apart from PGR3 so that's a big claim really.

    I have found a few great games on the system so far, including Madden 06, RR6, Kameo and COD2. GRAW & FN3 also seem to be pretty damn good but mine have yet to arrive.
