Title says it all, i probably have missed a lot of good games since the console came out. I'm mostly buying it because i want to ****ing play fight night round 4 but i'm sure there are other good games.

I'm buying the elite, so it comes with resident evil 5. So here are the games i am sure to have:

-Resident Evil 5
-Fight Night round 4

Now i'd like you guys to suggest me some games, but i don't want first person shooters. I always thought shooters were better with a mouse and keyboard and nothing will change that.

I was thinking about getting:

UFC undisputed?
Fable 2?
Red Faction: Guerilla?
Forza 2?
Midnight Club : Los angeles?

Any help on those games? Feel free to add anything, cheers.

Racing: Grand Turismo Series, DiRT, Need for speed underground series.

Fighting: Street fighter series. Mortal Combat Series, anything 2d like marvel vs capcom.

Action: Devil May cry series. God of War series. Ect.

RPG's: Fable, Morrowind, Oblivion, Fall out 3. Final Fantasy Series, ect.

Thats all that i can think of right now.

Call of duty series is one of the best online games. Online multiplayer is fun. World at war is out now and the next call of duty comes out in November.

Mass Effect, Gears of War , Call of Duty, and Halo.

No first person shooters please. I already got most of them on pc, having a pc means that you are mostly going to play shooters and strategy games, i like them, but i'm buying a 360 to play other stuff.

I know a great game, its called RROD.

You should totally get it. It's an Xbox360 exclusive and I heard it has a massive online following. :rofl:

Yeah i know, i'd want to get a ps3 but i can't see why i should fork out 500$ for a game system that has like 3 exclusives worth playing. Sorry but Infamous, metal gear solid 4 and little big planet aren't worth 500$. PS3 is a better console without a doubt, but the 360 has games atleast.

COD: MW is still probably the best shooter out there I'm not a fan of WaW ****in dogs piss me off, I know you said no first person shooters but COD: MW is a must buy, quailty story and fun multiplayer, you should give FN4 a go I like it, it's very addictive and a lot of fun, Forza 2 is probably the best Racing game out very realistic and has hours upon hours of playtime you can go into the auction house and buy cars that other people have designed (I literally spent hours just looking at them, some are incredible) and another game I really enjoyed was Bioshock, no multiplayer but the story is great and has a nice twist in it.

Thanks, about COD 4, i already own it on pc and i played the crap out of that game but i got bored of it and i don't even have it installed right now so i doubt i'll play it on 360.

That being said i am buying halo 3 simply because i have some real life friends that play it. I will probably buy modern warfare 2 when it comes out.

Also Forza is one of the game i buy for sure. I also heard that Midnight Racing Los Angeles is good too, might get it, i like these street racing games.

Right now these are the ones i'm getting for sure:

Resident Evil 5
Fight Night Round 4
Forza 2
Fable 2
Halo 3

Thats it for now.

Hardly, I own a 360. It RROD on me twice, I use it exclusively for well exclusives I haven't bought a game for my 360 since Gears 2 I'm only going to list exclusives worth getting since they are the only ones I can speak from experience on.

If your getting an xbox then theres the obvious Halo, Gears, Fable, Mass effect, Forza, and PGR4 (maybe) and Star Ocean

Games worth getting over the next year: Alan Wake, Halo: ODST, Reach, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Natal

Now if you were knowledgeable you'd know that the PS3 is getting a price drop and the new PS3 slim is almost a lock to come out.

And there are many more exclusives than you mentioned MGS4, LBP, Infamous, Valkyria Chronicles, Resistance series, R&C series (depends on what you like), Killzone 2, Uncharted, Warhawk, Motorstorm.

There are also FAR more exclusives coming out like God of War 3, Modnation racers, FF14, NGS2 (more a rehash with alot more content), Demons souls, Uncharted 2, R&C:CIT, Gran Turismo 5, White Knight Chronicles, Heavy Rain.

To the guy above while I agree and would recommend a PS3 over a 360 its clear that the TS already made up his mind in getting a 360 so I'll help him with the 360 games.

I would say for a 360 the games to get are:

FN4
CoD 4-5 (both still have very active communities for online play) depending on what you want modern or WWII you can get either one.
Gears of War: is good but pretty short I would say rent it.

I don't know what sports you play but I like baseball, football and Combat Sports.

UFC is a lot of fun but you can probably live with either UFC or FN4. If you like RPG then Oblivion or Fallout are tons of fun and will give you hours of gameplay.

Yeah, your right. I'm not being helpful

I'll go by Genre.

RPG - Fallout 3, Oblivion, Star Ocean, Fable II, Mass Effect
FPS - Halo 3, Bioshock, COD4, Unreal Tournment 3 (better on PC if you have one), The Orange Box, L4D
TPS - Gears 1&2, GTA4, Resi 5
Racing- Forza, PGR4, Burnout Paradise
Action - DMC4, NG2, Prince of Persia,
Fighting - SF4, Blazblue, MVC2, FNR4

Take your pick. Theres a wide range if your one of those people who likes to have a large collection.

Good list, but I felt Losy Odyssey was better than Star Ocean.

For sports games, NBA2K9 and EA NHL09 are what I like.

Soul Calibur 4 is also a solid fighting game and probabaly going cheap now.

First off, make sure it has the newer Jasper chip. Resident Evil 5 is better played with a buddy. Personally I'm one of the few that didn't like it cause I didn't want to depend on the dumb AI or another person.

Forza 3 is around the corner, so you should wait on that. From what I've heard.

Gears of War isn't a first person shooter, and they are pretty good games.

I would try Dead Space. Bioshock(though its a first person).

Thanks for all the suggestions.

I wanted to know, how long is the ethernet cable that comes with the 360? Cause my computer and my modem are in my bedroom and my 360 is going to be in my living room right across the hallway, will it be long enough?(I'll need 20-30 feets)

Or should i just get the wireless thingy?

So i had to buy the 360 arcade with a separate hard drive because the elites and pro's they had were all the old falcon model. Same thing in the end but i spent 5$ more in order to get a new model with the jasper chip.

Games i got are:

Resident Evil 5
Skate 2(Played a bit, don't really dig it so far)
Fight Night Round 4
Forza 2
Midnight Club: Los Angeles
Soul Calibur IV
Fable II

Plus a 4000 microsoft points card, i'm getting marvel vs capcom 2, dunno what i'll do with the rest. It's pretty cool, i already had a games for windows live account and i was able to use it as my gamer tag and all, already got all the achievements i had for pc games.
