Had my Xbox 360 for about 2 months now and I have a solid collection of 2 games + the Arcade game. Anyone got any suggestions for me? Happy with pretty much anything really, sport, racing, RPG etc...

Anything!

:D

must buys are Bioshock, Fallout 3, Dead Space, GTA, Burnout Paradise, FIFA 09, Gears of War 2. if your a bit skint then definately start with bioshock and fallout 3. fantastic games both of them.

Just completed Bioshock on the PS3, and have fallout 3 waiting in the wings. Fallout 3 just got voted the best RPG at the recent Video Games Awards

im about 30 hours into fallout 3 and absolutely loving it. so much to do outside of the main quest, and the setting is superbly done. how did you find bioshock? for me its probably the best game ive ever played.

Old feller here with smallish kids and a wife intolerant of violent games so my gaming world is devoted to Project Gotham Racing 4 which is just about the best driving game of all time.

Can't recommend it enough but would also put a shout in for Brian Lara cricket

I would recommend Far Cry 2 as it is a great game but it's got a nasty bug in it, I've got to about 65% completion on it (over 40 hours of play) and I can go no further as my saved game is corrupt. Ubisoft (the developer) as far as I've heard haven't even acknowledged the problem exists so no patch has been released.

Call of Duty: World at War is good and is worth completing for the extra Nazi Zombie level.

I really liked Bioshock, but to be honest, I have found more 1st person shooters better, infact, most of the resident evil games I've liked better, although they are not technically 1st person. To me, so far, Fallout 3 is much better as it's an RPG that is also a shooter, and some great storeis in there. So far, I'm trying to find why my dad left Vault 101 and at the same time looking for other people's solutions to gain skills etc

Christ, I'm all over the palce, I've really onl completed two missions in the wastelands, and it took a while. But in doing it there are a ton of towns I have discovered. Just killed off the Ants, and now have to find a kid someone to look after him, but might go to GNR Radio first to get info on my dad. Game has crashed on me a couple of times since I picked up the dog in the scrap yard. I've also got to find food at the super-duper mart, but can't pick the lock there yet. Find a strativarius violin over in the old DC area.

Have beaten the Ants, and saved the town from Vampire attacks too. But that has uncovered a load of other little areas I've yet to check out....it's a crazy game, and very entertaining, completely engrossing....I played 6 hours the other day without even thinking 2 had passed!

Oh and I will take hints, just no cheats! I like to fight fair! Also, any tips on gaining amo and then where to trade/sell your stuff? I've tried with the woman who owns craterside supply in Megaton, but until I find her stuff at the Super-Duper mart, she offers me no "caps" for whatever I'm trying to sell her

best thing to do if you wanna get some ammo and caps is to spend a bit of time picking up every old bit of crap you can and then sell it on. might take a bit of time, but is worth it as you can build up quite a bit of cash. you get a lot more ammo later in the game and my biggest problem is being able to carry everything. i did the wasteland survival guide pretty much first, its worth doing as you get to travel about a bit and get some decent gear.

Fallout sounds like a verrrrrrrrrrrry long game. Which is a good thing as all the games I've bought recently like Star Wars: FU and Transformers (PS2) have been really short and have been able to complete them in a matter of days. Really need something that will take loads of time and strategy rather than smash and grab stuff!

if thats the case then fallouts definately the game for you. its basically an rpg but with a lot less wandering around looking for confrontations. the setting is fantastic and to be honest ive not really done much of the main story as ive been messing about on side quests.

yeah it got voted best RPG, and it' great as it's a mix of a first person shooter, and a great adventure. It's good as I ploughed through resistance 2, and Bioshock. Both first person shooters, but very similair the whole game.

DKW, I'll need to do the wasteland survival guide...if that is even an option on the PS3 version. It's crazy, you start one mission, and it opens up two more. Even when you're done with one, there are options to further those same quests!

whats worse for me is ill be halfway a quest then come across another which seems more interesting. ill then go off and do that one thinking ill get back to the other. ill then find another one which seems more interesting and the pattern begins again....bloody annoyingly addictive game.

DKW,

have you completed the mission where you leave Megaton to go and find food and pharmaceuticals at the SUper Duper Mart? I think it is the wasteland survival guide's first mission. I went to do it, but don't have enough lockpick skills. SO now I am running about trying to complete other missions, and often becoming "overencumbered" as I can't find anywhere to sell my stuff? Any hints
