    Star Ocean 4 and Tales of Vesperia would be the main two.

    There will be loads more I'm sure. I have enough games to last me till then.

    My friends 360 was banned and I am yet to fix mine from rrod. Co-op games are what we are mainly after these days (actually since I first started playing games).


    Call of Duty 5. I so wanted co-op to be good but even with a big screen it did not do it for me. Will have to try system link. What little I played of single player I enjoyed.

    Mirrors Edge. Combat annoyed me and having come from assassins creed it felt like a backwards step to have almost pixel accurate type gameplay return.

    Gears 2. I have yet to complete the first and missed out on the start of this (I started at the boat ride section) but this one was OK.

    Fable 2. Burned it, I have not played it but my friend did.

    Fallout 3. Played it on the PC. The original STALKER did desolate radioactive wasteland better. Then again I have probably seen more of Pripyat than I have of Washington DC.
    It may have something to do with the fact I have no strength but can still carry around enough weapons to not have to worry about ammo (stalker had weapons available but trying to carry more than 3 and sufficient ammo was nigh on impossible)

    Prince Of Persia - saw it yesterday. I still have to complete the last trilogy (and if I feel masochistic I will track down the original prince of persia 3d, I only ever played a demo).

    Left4Dead - Got it for the PC, not looked at it yet.

    Saints Row 2 - Not played.

    Far Cry 2- Got it for the PC, not installed it yet.

    Dead Space - Saw it, could not be bothered to get it.

    The Last Remnant- Saw it, not done anything about it.

    Tales of Vesperia- Saw it, not done anything about it.

    Golden Axe: Beast Rider- I am told if you ignore the golden axe part then it is not bad. I have yet to find out for myself though.

    Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts- I quite liked the first N64 game but aside from a spell on the GBA version I have not played another yet. The nod to the incredible machine makes me ever more curious.

    Pure- The MX vs ATV line is to this day the biggest timesink for us on the original xbox. Got it for the PC, not installed it yet though.

    I know there are probably many others I am missing. I suppose the thing is I still have games from when I did not have an especially games capable machine *glares at laptop* and now we have a good enough set of PCs, a good enough network and a good enough broadband line I tend to go for fun rather than something new (kind of the opposite to how I do TV and film).

    left 4 dead - awesome game!
    Gears of War 2 - Fun story line, horde mode was a blast

    Just got
    Mirrors edge - it seems fun so far though the game is only 6-7 hours long! Luckily I bought it used at gamestop so I can return it in 7 days and get my money back!!

    Want to get:
    Fable 2
    Tales of Vesperia
    Call of Duty" World at War

    I've only just gotten my 360 and I feel overwhelmed to try out all these games but due to the lack of time recently, all I've been playing is one or two matches of online halo 3...

    I'm looking forward to the new PoP the most. I want to see how far they went from the SoT trilogy and how bad of a mistake that was.

    Fallout 3 - started on 360, replaced with superior PC version.
    Left4Dead - Only got the expert on all scenarios achievement, no vomit (which I've done about 20 fucking times without it unlocking) and the no damage from special infected achievements left to do.
    Banjo Nuts & Bolts - Not very far in, mainly been playing it while waiting for mates to get their shit together for L4D.

    Games I've not been playing but have

    Saints Row 2
    Fable 2
    Call Of Duty 5
    Prince Of Persia
    Gears 1 / 2 (never finished first so have yet to move onto seconds)
    Mirror's Edge
    Infinite Undiscovery
    Dead Space
    Dead Rising
    Viva Pinata - Trouble in paradise
    MK vs. DC Universe
    Naruto: Broken Bond
    Sonic Unleashed
    Assassin's Creed
    etc. etc.

    I need to make more time for games, I have plenty of time to download them because I can do my Uni work while downloading but I can't while playing. [​IMG]

    I have 24 games from the last 2 months (everything except sports games) or so, and have mainly been playing Fallout 3 and The Last Remnant.
    I have finished Gears 2, Mirror's Edge, COD5, Left 4 Dead (boring in single player) and Dead Space.

    Next year, so far all I'm really looking forward to is DarkSiders: The Wrath of War, The Wheelman, Rise of the Argonauts, Bionic Commando, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin, Street Fighter IV and Resident Evil 5.

    At the moment I'm playing the new pop. Played for about 2 hours so far , it's fun , but getting the light seeds could end up getting a bit tedious.

    Played and finished before that , Spiderman web of shadows , gears of war 2 , mirrors edge , dead space and tomb raider underworld.

    Also always playing GH2 , GH3 , GH:WT , Rockband and Rockband 2.

    I'm playing Fallout 3 but so far it been pretty meh to me. I'm not very far in at all but the graphics are pretty mediocre, imho. I'm going to give it another week though. It's all about the gameplay - amiright?
    /dodges rocks thrown

    Mirror's Edge is pretty neat - gorgeous graphics and I like that the gameplay is somewhat different. This game is like Sonic as a FPS (without the shooting).

    It's old but I just finished the Orange Box for the umpteenth time again. I can hardly wait to see HL2 Episode 3.

    Hmm, that's the only reason I would want a 360; free games. I'm good with paying for superior games for my PS3 though [​IMG] oh and no RRoD.
