I'm about to buy a 360 :thumbsup: and I want a couple of games for the missus. She really enjoyed, Fahrenheit, Tomb Raider Legend, Beyond Good and Evil etc. Can anyone suggest a few games in this catergory?




Me...I will be happy with Gears of war, halo 3 and Bioshock :devil:

Wha????

Women love to spend money...You can buy swimming costumes, jewellery, fashionable clothes, perfume, all manner of lovely things. And some fella called Zak gives you a gift every night before you go to bed. Sometimes it can be quite exotic, like a remote control plane or something :D And you get to lounge around the pool or the beach, go for a swim, jetski if feelin' energetic. What more could a girl want.
 
my wife is hooked on Viva Pinata - she almost murdered me when i accidentally deleted all her saves on it when we upgraded to an elite!

My best mate has trouble getting on his 360 since he bought Viva Pinata for his wife, so be warned!

PS. Great shout KinkyAffro :D

You can't go wrong with Sonic the Hedgehog - one button to jump and the left stick to move - nice and easy. Mine gets freaked out and refuses to play if you need to use more than one button. :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

I had to buy the wifey her own xbox (she was miffed they didn't come in pink), to play Zuma (has since started on Luxor 2).

As with most on here, once the button pressing goes beyond two buttons and the graphics are 3D, she loses interest. Any game that resembles Tetris and you seem to be on a winner, loads of games like that on live.

Your GFs seem similar to mine.

Therefore I'd say:

Kameo; Overlord; Viva Pinita; Lego Star Wars; Condemned; Oblivion. Full price.

Eets Chowdown; Outpost Kaloki X, Zuma, Hexic, Wik. Off XBLA.

lol. My Wife is EXACTLY the same. Her favourite games ever according to her are Alex Kidd, Mario and Sonic - basically any 2d platformer with one or two buttons to press!

3D is 'too confusing' apparently!!!:rotfl:

My wife has no interest in games whatsoever....

Mind you, she still struggles with light switches!!

Any hints as to where I can find a girlfriend who doesn't think games are a childish waste of time would be appreciated!! :smashin:

Only one my ex could get on with was Zuma. Tried to teach her table tennis but she managed 3 points before throwing the controller down in disgust as she was losing.

I am considering renting my wife out, since we got the big TV I cant get her off the bloody thing as the one upstairs is 'too small', who said size doesnt matter?????
