    I Bought a 360 in October but since I was busy catching up with my ps3 backlog I put it to the side; all the while buying cheap games for round 10 bucks. Problem is I'm ready to start playing my 360 but I've amassed 26 games in that time! I'm also horribly indecisive so I was hoping you guys could recommend one of them. I've just finished L.A Noir and I've whittled the list to these 12 games:

    Tales of vesperia
    blue dragon
    infinite undiscovery
    last remnant
    Majin and the forsaken kingdom
    dante's inferno
    ninja blade
    operation darkness
    spectral force 3
    99 nights
    shadowrun
    venetica

    What do you recommend first? first game to 3 votes is the winner. any votes after that I'll turn into an order to play list. I'll also review these games for those interested while I'm at it so if you just want me to play something out of curiosity that works too.

    Majin shouldn't be that hard to complete.
    Blue Dragon is going to take you hours.

    I'd vote for Blue dragon tho.

    I suggest Dante's Inferno first as it's quite short but fun.
    Ninja Blade second as it's also shortish.
    The rest are long games.

    I've played and finished them all but one that I found pretty terrible is Ventica tbh I wouldn't even bother with it!

    Dante's Inferno. It's not that long. You'll be playing for around 10+ hours for normal game.

    Obviously JRPG games (Last Remnant, Tales of Vesperia, Blue Dragon, Infinite Undiscovery) tend to be a grind-fest if not it's just plain too long to finish. Therefore, it'll take a lot of your time compared to platform, action-adventure, FPS, etc.

    I'll start with Dante's inferno while I wait the next in queue. let the suggestions stew in the mean time.


    What is wrong with venetica? I mean the 10 minutes i spent making sure it worked didn't seem stellar but it wasn't bad beyond the low budget feel.
