I find Sleeping Dogs to be very boring game but I sure did enjoy playing Burnout Paradise on 360 many years ago despite I'm not into racing games, I did enjoy myself with the Crashing animations.

@davillain-: It seems that people don't understand that BP is a driving game first and a racer second, it's the same with FH3. It the main reason people who aren't into "racing" games enjoy them a lot such as yourself.

@i_p_daily: Maybe so but it depends on the racing game, I will tell you this though, I'm a huge fan of Need for Speed franchise, but when it comes to racing games fun gameplay, it'll always be Mario Kart series. I have played other racing games yes but Need for Speed and Mario Kart are the only two main racing series I can get into.

@davillain-: Well to be honest NFS has gone down hill a lot since the early days, it's gone through so many devs, that at this point it has lost it's identity. I still play all the NFS games, but i feel they get worse every release :(

As for Mario Kart, well it's more a vehicular combat game, which is probably why you like it so much. Sure you race in it, but most people like the combat aspect of it. I've never seen anyone post about turning the weapons off and playing it like a racing game, do you do that, or do you leave the weapons on?

Sleeping dogs is a great game. Everyone should give it a try. Really over looked and underrated.

Excellent month Microsoft good job! Burnout Paradise is fantastic for those who haven't played it! It's kind of like a adventure game mixed with a racing game.

@newagegamersare: Outlast is definitely worth a couple of hours, at least -- treat it like a horror movie. Lights off, surround sound turned up, no one distracting/talking...

Once the jump-scares wear off & the repetitive reloading kicks in, then uninstall it.

Sweet, Burnout Paradise is BC today if you already own it, just saw it in my ready to install list.

I kept putting off buying Outlast whenever it would be on sale hoping it would be a GwG, nice to see that work out.

@newagegamersare: Yeah, think it was 5 or 10 bucks during some sale they had. But zero bucks is always better

Damn BC making my backlog grow even faster than normal. Too many good 360 games I set aside years ago hoping to play that I now have another reason to go back and try out.
