    Default Games Every Xbox 360 Owner Should Have

    Short version: I work at Game Stop. Employee Appreciation Weekend is this weekend. While I HAVE been splurging on games lately, I need to be sure there are no gems that I'm missing, so: What are some games every Xbox owner should have. Can include downloadable games/DLC for games too.

    GO GO GO.

    EDIT: Sorry, I actually meant 360. It's been so long that people thought Xbox meant Xbox original I forgot to specify. My B.

    Oddworld Stranger's Wrath- This game is an underrated game that really has only one flaw in that

    you lose all your upgrades halfway through and gain a completely different (and some would say worse) set


    Halo / Halo 2 of course (if your into that sorta thing, which I am)

    Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders and Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes. Very fun games that have a very unique gameplay type that combines a hack and slash rpg elements with real time large multi squad based combat.

    These are pretty much the only games I have since I recived most of them from a friend that works for GameStop and played most of the xbox library.

    Here's a few of my favorite full games (Note: I don't own all of them, but I have played all of them): Mass Effect (both one and two), the Orange Box, Saints Row 2, Grand Theft Auto IV, Halo Reach, Left 4 Dead 2, FF XIII, Gears of War 2, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, Fallout: New Vegas, Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, Fable III, Batman: Arkham Asylum, and...that's it. Every 360 game I love. Of course, I don't know what genre you like, so...

    Arcade-wise, I have a few. Braid, Castle Crashers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Any of them), Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, and...that's about it.

    For DLC: Ballad of Gay Tony (GTA IV), Lair of the Shadow Broker (Mass Effect 2).
    The only two DLCs I like.
    So..yeah. It really depends on what you like.

    None. Everyone's tastes in things like this are going to differ to some extent, and as such there is no such thing as a game that everyone who owns a specific console should have. For example, there are plenty of games already mentioned in the first two posts here which I would never consider getting, such as the Halo games or Left 4 Dead 2, because I don't like FPS games.

    Seriously, if you're looking for game recommendations, try giving us an idea of what type of games you like and don't like. That makes all the difference.

    It's rather simple.

    1) EDF!
    2) EDF!
    3) EDF!
    4) They shot the old man!

    EDF 2017 is one of the most fun games ever.

    Huge guns, big maps, bugs the size of buicks. What more could you want?

    Okay, maybe a River City Ransom style beat-em-up with great psuedo chiptune music and beautifully animated spritework based on the great Canadian novel. Get Scott Pilgrim too, then, I suppose.

    They're still valid: many original XBox games can be played on the 360. (Some might have problems, though)

    Mega Man 9 & 10 are must haves for any fan of old-school Blue Bombing.

    Also, Super Street Fighter IV and SSFII, if you're into fighting games.

    Working backwards:

    Mando: I've heard the XBOX Emulator on 360 is rather glitchy, so I'm wary of downloading any of those games (despite my love for Stubbs The Zombie). And I think I'm going to get MM9&10 on my Wii, just to have all of my MM games together. Oh, and I tried SSFIV - I sucked royally at it. I've got Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix, and still suck at it. (Fun fact - I also have a working arcade box of Street Fighter 2: Turbo Edition)

    Chisaur: I have no idea what EDF is, but I'll look into it. And I have the Scott Pilgrim game, which is full of win. I just want them to bring the damn DLC to 360.

    Dhavaer: Unfortunately, I lack a PC that's even anywhere near (processing-wise) able to play games, outside of The Orange Box (and even then not really TF2), but I DO have Oblivion GOTY edition and Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout: 3 for 360.

    Zevox: You know, I was much of your opinion: But then I started getting sad at not having anyone to play games with. So I went and bought Reach and L4D2, and although I suck righteously at FPS games, I'm making progress, at least.

    As to what games I like? RPGs/Actiony things.

    Falgorn: Of the games you mentioned, the only one I don't have/know much about is Batman. However, it seems to be set more towards the GRIMDARK Batman that's in the movies nowadays, not like the slightly more comedic Batman of the 90s (cartoon and movies), so I may have to give it a miss. Then again, going around as Bats and screwing people up is always fun...

    If you'd like to try other types of fighting games, I'd highly recommend BlazBlue: Continuum Shift (and maybe Calamity Trigger, the first one, though at this point the only reason to get that one is the story mode). Before playing the BlazBlue series I was never really any good at fighting games, but I loved those two, and playing them and checking a site with good information on them (dustloop) has helped me get a lot better at the genre.

    Plus they actually have story modes worth a damn. Seriously, the story modes of those games are the length of short RPGs. The story is confusing as hell, and you'll likely have to look up info online to understand it, but it at least provides plenty of development for the characters, which makes them more than just bodies for you to fight with. Oh, and there's a lot of good humor to the story modes, too. Almost every part of it has a joke ending, which is often quite funny, especially in the second game.

    *shrugs* Suit yourself. Personally, I'll take playing games I'll like alone, and don't really see any need to have others to play games with (save for fighting games).

    Quote Originally Posted by Deth Muncher View Post

    My top recommendation, then: Tales of Vesperia. Unless you just can't stand JRPGs or anime-esque art, that is an excellent game, my personal favorite on the console. It's an action RPG with great combat, excellent characters and character development, and a very good story.

    It probably goes without saying, but if you don't have it, Dragon Age: Origins is well worth getting. (My apologies if you already have it and have been in the thread for it on this forum - I'm not all that great at keeping track of many of the posters here.) Ditto for the two Mass Effect games, though I suspect those fall under your reply to Falgorn.

    Other JRPGs on the system you might consider are Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, and Eternal Sonata. I have only played the first of them, but found it quite good - it's more or less a Final Fantasy game in all but name (made by the original creator of that series, and it shows), except it's better than the actual Final Fantasy games I've played (4, 8-13 sans 11 - though note that I don't have a particularly high opinion of any of those). The other two I have only tried demos for, but they seemed to have potential.

    And for an action/platformer game, try Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. I'm currently playing it, and while I can't say for sure how much I'll like it come the end of the game since I'm only maybe halfway through, I think it's pretty good so far. Nice mix of platforming and combat, the fighting is simple yet fun, boss battles have been good, and it's visually quite stunning.

    Arkham Asylum is a very good action/adventure game, even if you're not a Batman fan (I'm not). It's certainly not comedic (save maybe for a few lines here or there from the Joker or Riddler, and even then, only mildly), but I'd say it's well worth purchasing.

    I've got the original, because my assistant manager looked at me like I had tentacles coming out of my head when I said I'd never heard of it. Currently, I've played through as Bang, and I rather enjoy...er, whatsisface, Mr. I Throw Ice Swords Everywhere And Win.

    I've got ToV, but I've yet to play it. But good to know so many people love it - a friend of mine recommended it to me, speaking very highly of the Tales Of series. Lost Odyssey falls into the "Have, but have not played" category as well. I actually know zilch about LO, Blue Dragon or Eternal Sonata. Suppose I'll look 'em up.

    And Enslaved? I'd actually not heard that many reviews (nor sold that many copies, honestly). Good to know someone likes it.

    Ah, that would be my main, Jin Kisaragi. Well, if you like what you've played of Calamity Trigger, consider picking up Continuum Shift. Aside from more story mode (and more Teach Me Miss Litchi) and tweaks to the gameplay, it adds three new characters off the bat, a couple of which I quite like personally, and there will be three more added via DLC. The second DLC character actually just released on the 360, and because he was delayed a couple of months he's been discounted to almost half the normal price ($4 instead of $7) until early next month.

    It's a pretty good game, certainly. Not something that looks like it'll have a ton of replay value (save for challenging hard difficulty perhaps), but I'd say it's well worth my purchase (actually, it's worth more than I paid, since I got it for only $25). The story is apparently based on a Chinese classic, but has been moved to a post-apocalyptic future, and it's working surprisingly well for such an odd change of setting. Voice acting is quite good too. And I already talked about the gameplay.

    EDF 2017? It's a third person shooter,

    Okay, the best way to describe it, I suppose, is describing a random level.

    You and your squadmates (Dumb as a sack of hammers to a man, but amusing in a Z movie way) are sent to a major metropolitan center, only to be greeted by a horde of panicy civilians. Followed by a horde of giant bugs.

    The remainder of the level is you and your squadmates trying to deal with a few city blocks full of giant ants.

    Pretty soon, your buddies? Probably dead.

    It's down to you, your assault rifle (by this point, it almost definitely has infinite ammo) and your rocket launcher capable of leveling a skyscraper in one shot. (ditto)

    One you, big city, dozens of bugs, big booms.
    Spoiler
    Show

    And yes. That is the first level. Later you meet the real enemies and get the good guns. Can you say 10 shots a second full auto homing missile launcher?

    It's based on Journey to the West, which is best known for the Monkey King.

    It's been adapted into lots of different settings, (Saiyuki and Dragonball for example), so moving it to a post-apocalyptic future and it still working doesn't surprise me.

    Obviously some plot elements have been changed - I can't see Tripitaka riding a horse which is actually a transformed castrated Dragon Prince doing penance for his sins.

    I second Lost Odyssey. But get and use the Prima guide for it. There's a lot of things you can easily miss unless you have it.

    What falgorn said are pretty much the big ones that everyone knows about although you missed Borderlands and Bayonetta!

    I personally think shadowrun is the best fps multiplayer combat to be had on the 360. XBLA 'monday night combat' being a close second.


    Sacred 2 :is okay - helps a little if your waiting for Diablo3
    Culdcept Saga : if your a magic the gathering fan
    Kingdom Under Fire : Don't update the game


    The next big game I'm waiting for is dungeon siege 3. That game is looking pretty awesome to me.

    Er, surprised no one has mentioned this one yet: Darksiders

    If you don't know much about it it's like a more mature Zelda game. You play as War, one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse and have to travel the world map and do Zelda-esque dungeons (complete with special item and boss) to undo the apocalypse you accidentally started early. If you're unsure, they have a demo which covers the entire first dungeon.

    Also, Enslaved is very fun, I would also recommend trying out the demo first though.

    Why waste your money? The game has been out for a couple years now - GameFAQs has everything you could ever need to know about it at this point.

    Far Cry 2 should be mandatory. The tutorial is both huge and very bad, but once one perseveres through that it is absolutely brilliant.
    Happiness yesterday and happiness tomorrow, but never today... It can't be because it's only an illusion after all, and illusions only look real from a distance. We're over, my dreamy lost love, over, and that's the best thing of all, because it's the only thing that makes it good.

    Oh, an EDF review.

    It's quite good.

    It was a budget title.

    1. The Orange Box
    2. Grand Theft Auto IV
    3. Mass Effect 2
    4. BioShock
    5. Red Dead Redemption
    6. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
    7. Gears of War
    8. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
    9. Halo 3
    10. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2


    These are must-haves, I think. Bolded are those that I felt were better on the PS3.

    Funny, the only one of those I have - and likely will ever have - is Mass Effect 2. The rest are largely not to my tastes, being a bunch of shooters, mostly of the first-person variety.

    Is there really a point to that post? The OP seems to have intended to... You know what? I don't understand the point of this thread at all.

    Yes, the same as to my first in the thread - challenging the entire notion of a "must-have" game.

    It's pretty much your standard "recommend me some games" thread, except framed differently.
