    Recommend some XBOX games to me

    I recently bought a xbox360 and need to build a game library. I currently have Gears of War and NFS:Shift. I dont need to have the latest games I just want some good ones. Not really in to console FPS I have a PC for that. GOW is ok but I find myself aiming around the bad guys while they shoot me up. I'm a long time Nintendo player and enjoy the Mario, Metroid, and Zelda games. Right now my gaming time is divided between BF3 on PC, Skyward Sword, GTA4 on PC, SM Galaxy2, and the NFS game. Thanks in advance

    regardless of preference to PC fps, you gotta check out the Halo series, I've been hooked since 04 and since they just released a remastered version of the first one, that'd be a great one to start on.

    If you want a time dump, grab Forza 2, 3, and 4. Play them in sequential order. All three are excellent games.

    You should get Psychonauts. It's an original xbox game... but it's on the backwards compatibility list.

    And you NEED Dead Rising... the first one.

    There's nothing on earth like it.

    How could I forget Dead Rising, one of my favorite Xbox games of all time HANDS DOWN.

    I have 7 play-throughs on that game, all of which were enjoyable. Unfortunately while still a great game, Dead Rising 2 just fell short imo.

    I second Red Dead Revolver, much better than GTA4. If you like need for speed then you may like the Midnight Run series. If you're into racing games, other than Forza there is also Project Gotham Racing series.
