So, I bought my XBox 360 at Tigerdirect.com on Wednesday and it was shipped Thursday and it has a scheduled arrive time on Monday the 27th.

The question is, what games are good for the 360? I am planning on buying GRAW and Oblivion. Are there anyother games out ther that are great to show the power of the 360? Perfect Dark any good? Are there any sports games such as NHL 2006 or Madden 2006 that are decent?

Which games do you guys have that own it?

Dont get the sports games. If you have the money get Perfect Dark, its awesome. Also I would get DOA4 and maybe PGR3.

Xbox 360 doesn't have any good gamesand is a waste of money imo, but since you did get one then get oblivion. Unless you have a good PC, get it for that.

Okay, here goes. Oblivion and GRAW are a great choice to start with. Stay away from pdz, the single player sucks, and the multiplayer is a lot like halo 2, in fact, I would say aspects of the graphics are even worse than Halo, namely the models and shadows. I suggest Kameo and Condemned for single player, however both are very short. Best get them used if you can. DOA is great fun...Hmm, what else. Geometry wars goes without saying...Call of Duty is good, but not as good as GRAW. I liked the fight night demo. You should try the demo and maybe get the game. I like the Outfit, but most other people don't. Again, you should try the demo before you buy it.

Enjoy icon_smile.gif

The ones I'd say you more definately should get are GRAW or BF2:MC depending on ur taste, and Oblivion... other than that I'd say try gamefly... so far it has been definately worth the money... it's saved me about $200 on games I probably would have bought, and it's great for single player games that you can play and send back after you beat them... but yea mos-def get oblivion... if ur not sure about PC or 360 version check out this: Oblivion it has screenshot comparisons alittle bit through it and a full review of most other aspects of the game...

Oblivion is the only single player game I'd actually BUY... otherwise rent

I'd buy Oblivion or GRAW. Stay away from BF2, it sucks. There's no change, other than graphics. CoD 2 is also worth a try, and I've heard many good things from Far Cry Instincts : Predator.

well just cuz there's no change in the game doesn't mean it's a bad game... I've only played the demo, and it was pretty fun but the games are kind of different in their playstyles... some might like it over GRAW... but yea... that's where gamefly comes in handy lol

I heard it was a bit linear, it looks good, but it didn't seem to have much to offer. pp_smiley1.gif

Well, I got my 360 and I bought Oblivion, GRAW, and MLB 2K6.

Oblivon is just unbelievable, not just one of the best 360 games, but the best game across all consols and the PC at the moment. GRAW is also amazing, I play this game nonstop with my friends online, so much fun. MLB 2K6, I know not alot of peole willg et this game, but I love baseball and I play it alot single player and multi-player.

Basically, I love the 360. To stream music from my computer and pictures is just awesme, and customizing the look of it is pretty cool. I love the marketplace, download demos of games and trailers to games or movies, good stuff.

Heh, In my opinion, the worst thing about the 360 is that there were no good launch games whatsoever.
The only game that seems any good is the new Ghost Recon, other than that, it seems loaded down with sports games and other random crap.
I know they plan to release Halo 3 on the day the PS3 is out, but I don't think that was worth the sub-par release of 360.
Oblivion just came out for it, but the PC version pwns it more.
Live for the swarm!

Er, yeah it does IMO. That's why so many sequels suck, it's the exact same game and BF2: MC is a perfect example.

I found Perfect Dark 0 great for single player but it's multiplayer is pretty suck compared to what else is out the in the FPS multiplayer market.

Its for people that havent seen it, or dont believe thinking that screenshots are photoshopped


I was thinking about gettin a 360 just for a few games... condemned was one of them...
but since its out on the PC, and I can play everything on Max, no need to get 360 atm...
for realism, get condemned, Hitting people with Pipes.... It just looks to real... makes me want
