    Hey, I haven't had time to play my 360 much for nearly a year :p
    Been saving for other things.

    Anyway, here are the games I already own/played and going to get in bold.
    PES6
    COD2
    GRAW
    Saint's Row
    Marvel Ultimate Alliance
    Hitman: Blood Money
    PGR3
    Table Tennis
    Top Spin 2
    PDZ
    Gears of War
    GRAW2
    Bioshock
    Virtua Tennis 3
    Rainbow 6: LV

    I'm sure thats the list so far, so what else do you reccomend I get? I am not into simulation driving much so will give Forza a miss, but do enjoy arcade driving (have Burnout 4 on PS2, that'll do for now :p)

    So what else would you reccomend/what have I missed out on?

    Thanks! :clap::clap:

    It depends really what you are into. I for one never thought I'd like Guitar Hero II that much, because I love FPS games. However I tried it and was hooked (and I mean hooked - I have played this game far more than any other, and I played Rainbow 6 ALOT!!

    Probably best for you to now wait for GHIII which is out in October I think, unless you can pick up GHII for a bargain.

    I also enjoyed The Darkness a lot, but finished the single player in a week.

    I'm another vote for Guitar Hero II but there is also Viva Pinata which is surprisingly addictive once you start. Lego Starwars II is excellent fun too.

    TDU is good and not overly simmy. It's fun comeas more from the exploration and the whole sandbox nature of the game. Just cruising about with some friends can be great fun.

    Command & Conquer 3
    - Really good RTS title and although the control is not perfect (and not as good as on the PC) it's pretty decent. This is worth buying on the 360 if you don't have a decent PC.

    Bomberman Live - A great XBLA game which i'd certainly recommend for local & live play.

    Personally i've waiting for GH3 and wireless controllers before going next gen with that series, but GH2 is a great game.

    Oblivion - a must play game (even if RPG's aren't your thing).

    COD3 - worth playing if you liked COD2, bit it's not as good IMO.

    No worries :), TDU is great fun and is a game world that you can easily spend hours in! Certainly one of my fave 360 games to date.

    Very much like, with more destructable environments.

    Its like Burnouts twin to be honest, anyway, hunt down the Flatout thread on here where it universally loved (more so than any other game I have seen on here, including Bioshock).

    CONDEMNED... Absolutely awesome game. Brilliant atmosphere, story etc, not to mention brutal melee action and some real jump moments....

    It is only £10 on Gameplay now and it is a bargain if ever there was one.

    Other than that and the games mentioned, if you like racing games then Moto GP07 has just come out and is great, or 06 is cheap now and also excellent.

    Also, if you like sports games, two of the very best imo are NBA 2K7 and NHL 2K7. They are both amazing.

    Cheers, as it is so cheap I might pick it up.

    I tried the MotoGP06 demo, wasn't my thing really. And not into NBA or NHL, but will test the demos first.

    What are peoples views on Transformers?

    And I think I will get The Darkness soon as well! And Halo 1 and 2, I've never owned them (never had XBox1) and so want to play them before Halo 3 spoils me with its graphics.

    ive got the 1st blazing angels game and i tried the demo and tbh i didnt see much difference in both, u could always get the 1st game as its probably quite cheap now.
    stranglehold looks a good game too which is why im getting it.

    tbh ive still got halo 2 and tried it the other week.....didnt look good to me so im just waiting for halo 3 to come out but its your choice.

    Download the Demo's off Market Place and test drive the games for yourself.

    People have their own preference, if 1, 2 or 20 people in this thread say they like a game that does not mean you will.

    The thing is, about the TDU demo, I loved driving around cruising, but I found it hard to control the car.

    And from what I hear, the real game has improved a lot!

    BioShock

    MotoGP - I hated it to set off with but once you earn a few credits and up your cornering ability you'll be scraping your knee's alongside Rossi in no time...

    Burnout Revenge - Brilliant online as you can't cheat, the whole point is to ram your opponents into concrete walls.

    Oblivion - prepare to lose a week of your life.

    Rainbow 6 - One of the best single player games available, similar to GRAW but much more atmospheric.

    Gears Of War - Good while it lasts, good to show off to your mates who dont have a 360 or HD telly.

    TDU - Ignore the demo, the full game is much better.

    You can fiddle with the settings to make the car control a lot better - a lot of people missed this bit on the demo. The cars actually control really well and even the bikes are great fun once you get used to them. Flying down a highway weaving in and out of oncoming traffic is great fun!:)

    What, like you?

    Should read :-

    "It was obviously an anti PS3 comment and irrelevant.

    Guess what! None of us are perfect and we all make spelling mistakes, so there really is no need to try and be clever as someone else can always throw the same thing back at you. :)

    Oh and i'd love to know what species the mods are if they are not also people :D.

    I guess the above can be pretty much translated to :-

    "Well mistakes by myself I can forgive because I think that i'm great and having a go at myself is hardly likely to get a rise out of anyone. A mistake by anyone else I can not forgive because that's the kind of guy I am and why be nice to anyone when you can have a go at them."

    Why you feel that a title need be written any slower or less carefully than the main text of a thread I do not know. Personally I would prefer to see the main body of text with the correct grammer and spelling. At the end of the day though, i'm not sad enough to ever pull anyone up on it (title or main text) as people type stuff quickly on here and mistakes will always be made by me, you and everyone else.

    The best thing is for people not to be anal about it. :)

    Keep being tempted to pick this up myself, especially as it's now pretty cheap! I think i'll wait for a gaming drout to occur, but it certainly looks like the ideal game to fill a week or three.

    If you have a friend to play crackdown with in co-op it will last you ages and is so much more fun than alone, i found myself getting bored when i played it by myself to be honest.

    I did put many hours in though well over 30/40 i'd say. :eek:

    Cool! My thread got spoilt a little, thanks for backing me up dudes!!!

    Anyway, Crackdown co-op it is then!

    And I'll take CAS FAN's word that the car controls can be altered, 'cos I played the demo again today, and it was sooo hard to drive properly.

    Crackdown certainly seems to be recommended by a hell of a lot of people but just one of those games that I really could not get into. Gone back to it a few times now and keep nibbling away but the addiction bug has yet to bite. So looking at that list I would have to recommend the following:

    Guitar Hero II
    Viva Pinata (seems simple but has a lot of depth and time just flies)

    From the arcade:

    Bejewled
    Space Giraffe
