I got a new Xbox 360 Arcade yesterday, need game suggestions

Post by nightwheel » Sun Jun 20, 2010 6:51 pm

Walmart was having a Fathers day sale where you buy the 360 Arcade that is now already $150, and get a $50 gift card back. The 360 came with a Wireless Controller. And Came with two games, Vivia Pinata and Banjo-Koozoie: Nuts and Bolts. So I figured it was high time to get a 360. And I had the money to finally do so.

Well after getting my 360 from Walmart, I managed to trade off Vivia Pinata. And get myself a 20gb hard drive in return for my 360 at a local game store. I also picked up a used copy of the Orange Box for the 360 for $9.99. (I got it for HL2: ep2). It's been fun so far to play half Life on my 360.

So what games do I need to get for my 360 besides the obvious ones like Halo and Gears of War?

Oh yea, a picture of my new 360:

Who knows if the Namco Portable will ever become a reality? :P

BioShock (1&2)
Mass Effect (1&2)
Dragon Age Origins
And of course Halo 3 and Halo 3: ODST

the Mass Effects
the Halos (especially Halo 3, and Reach when it comes out)
The Gears of Wars
& Modern Warfare 2 is good fun

You should also hop online with it and download Mega mans 9 & 10 :) (especially 9)

Oh, and a warning to ya...unless you're a DIE HARD JRPG fan, avoid FF13 at all costs, lol. I say this cause my youngest bro loves JRPGs, yet can't stand this one :lol:

Guitar Hero or Rock Band, unless you already have them on another console. Honestly the only games I've ever played for hours at a time on the 360.
