Recommend me Xbox games.

Postby Chimaera » 2012-01-09 08:04pm

Having just plunged wide-eyed into the world of HD gaming for the first time thanks to a gifted Xbox 360, I need some games to go with it. It came with Halo Reach, but I'd like to bulk out my collection a little.
Any game from any genre, except sports, that are really, really good, well-known and less so. :D

I don't own a 360, but I'll name the multi-platform games I enjoy roughly in order of recommendation:

-Batman: Arkham Asylum and City
-Dark Souls
-The Orange Box, Left 4 Dead 2, and Portal 2 (though I'd recommend those on PC if possible)
-Red Dead Redemption
-Assassin's Creed II and if you really like it, Brotherhood
-Mass Effect 2 (didn't care much for 1)
-Dead Space 1 & 2
-Vanquish
-Burnout: Paradise
-Alpha Protocol

And for XBLA:

Braid
Outland
Bastion

Gears of War 1 and 2 are great, if you can only have one go with Gears 2. I haven't played Gears 3 yet so I can't give a recommendation one way or another.

Thanks for the suggestions so far all, also, I can't believe how cheap the games are now. I remember them being £35-50 when the 360 came out, saw several games at £1 today XD
Though I guess it HAS been 7 years since it came out...

The Forza Motorsports series has been one of my favorites for quite some time now.
