Hi My son is getting an X-box for Christmas and I plan on also using it a LOT!!! I used to be into games but haven't played any for the past few years. i was wondering whether anybody could recommend the epic 360 games that I should buy. From what I read things like Borderlands and Mass Effect seem like good choices. FWIW I like a game with a good story. Also, the selection of games for children (7 y.o) appears to be quite poor. Can anybody recommend any decent kids games?

I'd recommend Deus Ex: Human Revolution for you and Lego Star Wars/Batman for your son. If you have kinect, then Sesame Street TV might be worth a try.

Was just going to make a topic asking about deus ex. If I enjoy games like mass effect, will I enjoy this game?

Deus Ex is one of the best games that I have ever played, period. Excellent story, RPG elements, actions, freedom to choose your route, side quests, etc. I also really enjoyed ME2.

I'm pretty confident you will as the story and the gameplay is just superb. I will say that the boss fights feels out of place compared to the rest of the game.
