Trying to look up some not all brand new games that are worth checking out for this platform and wondering if anyone has anything to recomend

Everyone has different tastes / preferences. What types of games do you like to play, and what are some of your current favorites?

Not sure what you like but if you are looking for cheap good games I will recommend Gears 1 & 2, Perfect Dark, and Blue Dragon. That will give you a third person shooter, fps, and a JRPG. A lot of people didn't like Perfect Dark, but I found it to be pretty good.

I Gears 1 & 2 are a must, but I would recommend Lost Odyssey over Blue Dragon! Don't get me wrong I did not mind Blue Dragon, but Lost Odyssey was just superior in every way.

If you haven't played the original Bioshock or Dead Space I would definitely get those. Dead Space to me is the best gaming experience this generation...

Dead Rising. It is the best ever!

Some of my favorites for the system include Tales of Vesperia, Eternal Sonata, and Dead Rising.

Kameo

Max Payne 3

Have you got into the halo series? It's my favorite shooter game. It may be hard for you to catch up on ALL the games though. It may only be worth getting if you have live though.

Another fun shooter is bioshock. Start from the first one.

For action adventure/platforming, theres kameo. It's pretty old, which makes it cheap, and it's very fun, the gameplay is so varied, I never got bored.

I also enjoyed fable (especially fable 2, 3 isn't as good), and portal. I don't know, what games have you played already?

Definitely Dead Space series. The Darkness is a great series too, even though the second game came out this year and it isn't up to par with the first one. I can recommend Two Worlds 2 as a cheap, but very expansive RPG and also The Witcher 2, which is an incredible story-based, tactical RPG. Cheers!

i played through the whole of the first Halo, but i just didn't like it. Tried the multiplayer in 2 and 3, still didn't like it

Halo Anniversary

#15 Posted by daniel79 (236 posts) -

Red faction guerrilla.

It's open world (or is that planet..?), it's mars and you blow whole buildings up (Or is that down..?)

Either way, it's great.

Definately the Gears of War series, but as for more less popular games... (only going to list the games you probably won't have heard of, or on the other hand at least for some time) Mafia II Rainbow Six Vegas 1 and 2 Tomb Raider: Anniversary The Sims 3 Split/Second (if you have never played Burnout I recommend those too, but Split/Second is a great little game) :D

If you like strategy games or collectible card games, Culdcept Saga is definitely worth a look. It's sort of a strange mix, but a really excellent game.

#21 Posted by immortality20 (7958 posts) -

There's lots of great old games!

Bioshock, The Orange Box, Splinter Cell, Assassins Creed 2, Wet, Rainbow Six Vegas 1&2, Gears of War 1&2, Halo ODST, Fable 2, Oblivion, and all these are 20 bucks and under. Hell you can pick up Max Payne 3 for 19.99 new now too!

Brothers in Arms: HHAlmighty-mints
Ooh yeah, that one too. Brothers In Arms: Hell's Highway is fantastic! I also agree with Dark Sector, although it starts to get a little bit repetitive and it starts to drag on a bit towards the end of the game in my opinion. I think it's because the levels just get needlessly long or something. But still worth checking out. I also had fun with BlackSite: Area 51 and TimeShift. While they are obviously not the best games ever and they got average scores, they are fun games. The timeshifting stuff is fun to use as well. These games should be really cheap by now as well.

just a note for TC

L4D2 has a DLC, Cold Stream, which ported over all the maps from L4D1.

and also lets you play any mutation, as long as you have The Passing DLC

Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, Dead Space, Bayonetta, Dante's Inferno and Fallout 3.

If you want to go way back I would suggest the xbox original Jade Empire. A very unique RPG from Bioware.

Check out Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom, I picked it up cheap and it was a great puzzle/platformer/rpg-esque game! Worth its small price tag

Resonance of Fate and Tales of Vesperia

Beautiful Katamari for the 360, only really bad thing i can say about this game is all missions have a time limit and the controls are a little funny to get used to at first.

You can actually get eternal mode on most stages if you play the stage enough and get x amount of score. But regardless, this is an excellent game with affordable DLC levels too! :)
