Eh... can't really think of anything.

Oh, Banjo-Kazooie! Although the sheer fact that you or I couldn't remember it is telling. :-\

Er...

Kinda devoid of life, this console.
*Edit* D'ya think mass effect is your cup of tea?

Little more info on your gaming habits might be helpful. I'm guessing you have a Wii and you don't like shooters.

You can't go wrong with Viva Pinata, Mass Effect is fun unless you hate western RPGs, Dead Rising, Overlord, Fable 2, Fallout, Oblivion, Burnout Paradise, Left 4 Dead it's going to be so good i don't care if it's a shooter, your required to by it.

There are some other JRPGs that are out that got decent reviews but I can't think of their names.

There is also A ton of good XBLA titles, like Castle Crashers which I put in a good 20 hours in already.

well santa...nice list of games

but really...the real problem is i dont like shooters on a console

i have mass effect for the pc
also oblivion
im gonna get left4dead on pc...also fallout...and fable 2 if its worth anything
played overlord on pc
could get viva pinata
dead rising too

and castle crashers does look awesome


the problem is that most games are on pc too...and i totaly prefer pc

still...the list is quite small...

does the 360 realy have any good exlusives besides dead rising?

I always like to add Crackdown to these lists.  It's probably pretty cheap by now.  Plus the ability to run around and fight with your friends is a lot of fun.

Well not liking shooters on a console doesn't help the 360, there's Halo Wars but I imagine you like your RTS on the PC as well. Culdcept Saga, a RPG Board Game where you build decks and stuff. It's like Magic meets Monopoly.

I know there are some other games out there, I just have to put on my thinking cap for a bit.

Got any friends with a 360?
Or maybe rent one instead? Actually, that might be way too risky.

It doesn't look like there's much for you on this console.
There wasn't for me either. Or the PS3.
Sittin' there collecting dust now.

There's always GTA, cept for the shooter problem. I dunno if burnout paradise is exclusive, but I'm guessing not. Uhh...

I dunno. 360 is a pretty bad console not to like shooters on. Well, viva pinata's already been mentioned, but...


Ooo! Rock band!


wait...note exclusive.

If you get 360 don't do the same mistake I managed to do, by buying the arcade version. It got no hardrive, instead it got a crappy memory card with only 350MB. Sure this is enough for storing saved games but it's crap if you want to try out demos and download stuff.

I would suggest:
Infinite Undiscovery (haven't played it yet but it looks good)
Fable 2
Force Unleashed
Final Fantasy 13

If you stop and think about it, Your life's longer as an old guy than a kid. Scary o.o

Oh, I forgot banjo kazooie. I'm uber excited for this game.

Oh, there's facebreaker, which seems like some fun. I'd wait a bit til the price drops though. There's forza motorsport if you like realistic racing sims, there's pure for four-wheeler (atv?) racing.
