    I just got my results this morning and I am VERY happy with it. I will reward myself with 2 Xbox 360 games but I can't decide. Sure, there is the Essentials list in this site but I can only pick two. Can anyone suggest me two good games? By the way, I don't play that much shooting games so no Halo or GoW. I prefer mostly RPG/Adventure/Music. Here are the games that I already have/have played:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Also, please suggest only XBL games - no Arcade.

    I made this thread as I prefer to hear other people's opinions than looking at sites like IGN for review scores. Sometimes I like the games that they rate bad.

    Yeah the Bioshock/Oblivion goty pack looks great, so you might even be able to get 3 games. Try giving Mirrors Edge a whirl.

    I would really suggest Lost Oddessy, Forza 2, Mass Effect or Resident Evil 5. I know you can only pick 2 but any of those are worthy of your time.

    I already have it but it's too damn effin' hard. I keep on dying on Chapter 8 (the mine field part). The traps keep me from getting the measly crystal skull.

    It's hard for me because I'm only restricted to one weapon (dragon sword) as I'm aiming for the achievement. I've decided to just ignore it and use my other weapons.

    Beautiful Katamari
    Crackdown
    Fable 2
    LEGO Star Wars and Batman (Noticed you already have Indy)
    BlazBlue
    X-Men Origins: Wolverine (I know, movie based games = suck, but this one is actually way better than the movie)

    Tales of Vesperia not the best of the tales series but still good. Oblivion and Fallout are both good games. I personally like the spiderman web of shadows game it is just oure fun to me, plus bestbuy may still have it for $15 on clearance.

    I'm considering Fable 2 and the LEGO games. I just finished Indy today (1000 GS too) and I want more! A lot of people say Star Wars is the best LEGO game out there.

    Rpg and adventure games? Hmmm you could try Assassin's Creed, Tales of Vesperia, Oblivion, Devil May Cry 4, Any LEGO game, or Blue Dragon. Those are some really good games right off the top of my head.

    Also guys, TC said he/she doesn't want shooter games.

    EDIT: Here are video reviews with gameplay for each of them from gametrailers.com

    Assassin's Creed
    Tales of Vesperia
    Oblivion
    Devil May Cry 4
    Blue Dragon

    I didn't include reviews for the lego games because the gameplay for all of them are almost the same, just search for the one you are most interested in.

    2. Already finished Assassin's Creed (looking forward to the second one).
    3. I forgot to mention Blue Dragon. I borrowed it from a friend.
