New to Xbox/360.

So I've never owned an Xbox before, as I had a PS2/3 instead that I had for years. Down the track, sold my PS2, and then my PS3 as I got bored with it.

I'm not familiar with the original Xbox library, same for 360, but I decided to get one for a change. Plus, I can play my favourite PS3 games again on 360 so why not.

I'm mostly looking for Action/Adventure, JRPGs, and some unique FPS, such as Vanquish or BioShock. Also, I enjoy underrated/hidden gem games such as Nier.

I know it's odd as to me the Xbox library is full of FPS, sports and WRPGs which is great for fans of those genres... but I'm not interested in those genres. Surely there's some great games out there for my type of genres?

So far I'm getting Lost Odyssey, Infinite Undiscovery, Deadly Premonition, Silent Hill 2, Fable?, Import Tuner Challenge, Blue Dragon, The Last Remnant, Enchanted Arms.

Give Alan Wake a go....looking at your taste in games I'm sure you'll like it. I don't want to say that it's unique but it does have a different vibe from the more popular survival horror games.

Even though the game is presented more like a mystery novel with really good voice acting, the gameplay and cutscences are balanced out pretty well.

Forza is a game you should try out if you like racing at all. Mark of the Ninja, Trials Evolution and Dust And Elysian Tale are also awesome

Among all the jrpgs you mentioned, Lost Odyssey is the only one worth playing.

It is unique!

A unique FPS is Prey. The weapons are very strange, but in a good way. It combines first person action with some simple but fun puzzle solving.

You might like Magna Carta 2. It's an exclusive Korean JRPG on the xbox 360. I haven't played it. It has mixed reviews. Some people say the story is clichéd and boring, others say it's awesome. I really enjoyed Nier though and that had mixed reviews.
