    360 game suggestions?

    I am getting a little bored with my current selection of games, and was just curious if anyone had some games that they really like. I've been reading about F.E.A.R., and it sounds interesting. Has anyone played that? Doesn't look like a game for my little guy, but I'd be interested in hearing about some kid friendly games too.

    Re: 360 game suggestions?

    What do you currently have?
    My recommendations for great games that are kid friendly and fun for the adults too - Kameo (very great adventure game), Viva Pinata (much more fun that it looks)
    My recommendations for just flat out great games - Oblivion (I don't care if you have a PS3, PC, or 360, this is a must own title), Forza2 (much like Gran Turismo series on the Playstation systems, I will argue that it is far better), if you like RTS Battle For Middle Earth2 was done very well and could be fun for the kids. Another good FPS was Perfect Dark Zero (many people didn't like it, but I though the single player campaign was good, and the online was excellent. Project Gothem Racing 3 was another good racer, by no means a sim, but fun none the less. Those are just some, plenty more out there.

    Re: 360 game suggestions?

    I currently have:

    Rainbow Six Vegas- Excellent, though online players level up to better equipment and waste your *ss.

    NBA Street Homecourt- It's ok, my boy likes it better than I do.

    Ghost Recon 1 and 2- Both excellent games, have been played to death.

    History Channels Civil War- My boy likes it, but it is hokey and boring.

    The Outfit- Pretty fun, haven't played it a lot.

    NCAA Football 07- Very good, waiting for 08.

    Call of duty 2 and 3- Both excellent, especially online, but have been played to death.

    Oblivion- I agree with your assessment, Kyro. It's a must have. I don't have the expansion game yet, not sure if it adds that much?

    Battlestations Midway- It's a fun game, but flying games make my head hurt after a while.

    Lego Star Wars II- My boy loves this one, and it is fun for me also. Not something that motivates me to sit down and play though.

    TMNT- I haven't played it. My boy does every once in a while, but it looks repetitive and shallow.

    I am thinking about getting Splinter Cell Double Agent again. I traded it in a while back at Gamestop, but I'm thinking I should have kept it. Very hard after the first few stages. I used to have Gears of War, and I liked it pretty well, but the people I played with online were completely addicted to it like it was crack or something.

    You have a fiancee, right, cyclonepride? I LOVE Guitar Hero - it's not often that I am waaaay better at a video game than my husband, but that game is so addictive. You could probably get her into playing it.

    I second this. My girlfriend got my Guitar Hero 2 for my birthday a few months back and has thus started to repeatedly whoop my *** at it. Same with Amplitude for the PS2. What is with girls and music games?

    Guitar hero = teh aw3some, no matter which platform it's on. Anyone can have a ton of fun with that.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Angie, you must have some serious connections. I just got engaged on Saturday. I haven't found a game that she really likes yet, other than Bejeweled 2.
