I got a 360 last week. So far I only have Reach, Alan Wake, Burnout Paradise, and Banjo-Kazooie N&B, but all of them... are fantastic. Glad I decided to get one :3

Just be warned with Bayonetta that you are killing angels and you will be summoning major Biblical Demons as allies. Gameplay is fantastic but for some Christian religious persons it may be bit too much.

Vanquish on the other hand is amazing.

That's a good point. Since I'm not religious it is a non-issue for me but some people might not like the whole vibe of the game.

I have a 360. I only have one game for it though- Tales of Vesperia. I borrowed/rented Eternal Sonata and Star Ocean 4 though. My friend recently got Enchanted Arms for $5, so we may play that eventually. I am thinking about trying out Lost Odyssey because I heard it's a pretty good game.

I would of course recommend Bioshock as a general great game.

Well this may be my 300th attempt at asking about a 360, but for once, I really think it might happen this time. I have $110 right now and I'm looking at buying a 4GB 360 (I'll wait to upgrade until Christmas) and Halo 3, I'm buying it for the exclusives of course, my trusty PS3 gets all the multiplatform games. But my list has really increased, a lot larger than I originally thought:
Halo 3, Halo 3<img class=D" />ST, Halo: Reach, Halo Wars, Fable II, L4D, Gears of War, Shadow Complex, Perfect Dark: Zero, Perfect Dark, Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts, and probably some other downloads I can't think of right now.

Edit: I don't know what the hell is up with Halo 3: ODST up there :P

okay, my sisters boyfriend is giving away his 360 to me sometime in the near future, and i need help. now, i already know what games to buy and such (Super Street Fighter IV, Soulcalibur IV, and BlazBlue FTW!) but i have one big question:

IS XBOX LIVE WORTH IT?
this is my big question overall. i want to play games online, but i dont care as much about the other stuff that live offers such as in game chat or achievements and stuff like that. is there a way to simply get the online functionality, but leave out the other stuff? if not, is the subscription fee really worth it for someone like me who doesnt play online that often?

You do get 1 month of free Gold when you sign up with a new account, so you can always test it out yourself. I really wish that they made online and all that other stuff separate because it really sucks paying a subscription fee.

Eh...I don't really like Western RPGs. I really only play JRPGs. I like fantasy-type games with swords and dragons.

Bioshock has RPG elements, but it is a shooter at heart. Just an extraordinarily fantastic single player shooter. Which is why it is not recommended as a great RPG. ;)
Seriously, if you have any interest in FPS games; do yourself a favour and buy this game.
And don't forget its upcoming "sequel", Bioshock Infinite.

Luckily, most of those games you've mentioned can be bought for pretty cheap (except for Reach, which was released recently.)

If you don't play games online that often it depends. If Facebook, Twitter, LastFm and the ESPN thingy popping up don't sound that interesting to you either you may be fine with the free membership. I'd recommend trying it for a month and seeing if you like it.

Yeah, seriously, you may think that you won't play online much, but that may change. ;)
Playing your games online is really addictive. But, it wouldn't be so addictive if games would actually have local multiplayer (bots are nice too). There are only a handful of games which still offer local multiplayer. If you know a few friends with 360s, the fun-factor is doubled; possibly even tripled.

Don't forget the sales on XBLA for Gold Members, and along with being able to play with friends, you get numerous other features, including voice chat and parties, so you can still talk to your friends even if you aren't playing together.

I noticed that you don't have an RPG. You should think about getting one. I recommend Dragon Age and/or Fallout 3.

Unfortunately, RPGs just really aren't my thing :/ We often have a love/hate relationship :P

I've thought about getting New Vegas though, it sounds pretty good. Vanquish does also have my attention though~ Plants vs. Zombies is the next on my 'to-buy' list currently, though. :P (What, I love that game. Why not?)

You can't really do much, with out online on 360.
I mean, who are you going to Tea-bag if your not online :O

The last shooter I played and enjoyed was Perfect Dark for the N64, and that was only because I liked its capture the flag mode. So yeah, I'm not really into shooters.... I really only like JRPGs, action/adventure, and platformers.

At least try the demo. You may be surprised.

If you like Metroid Prime then you might also like Bioshock. It's got that adventurey vibe going for it and isn't exactly a straight shooter.

Never played Metroid; probably never will. The only Nintendo games I really play are Zelda and the occasional Mario Kart. I used to play Mario, but I stopped after it went 3D. I like Nintendo as company more than for their gaming franchises.

I don`t even know what to say to that...
Maybe I will just make funny text then.
