    Right, I have a proposition for y'all... I'm getting a 360 for Christmas and would like to know what games you would all recommend, it comes with Fifa 08 and Tony Hawks but I hate football and will be swapping Tony Hawks for Skate.

    Any suggestions? Probably gonna get Halo 3, Gears Of War or Call Of Duty 4...

    Also, games for the missus would be good to keep her quiet...

    Post your faves here, I like games that aren't extremely repetitive.

    Cheers now!

    Gears of War is very good and very addictive. A fresh take of the same series.

    Bioshock is better -excellent RPG shooter, probably game of the year (like its predecessor, System Shock 2). It is leagues better than Halo 3 - which is more of the same again.

    Call of Duty 2 is a great budget game, COD 3 is rubbish, COD 4 is good while it lasts but it only lasts 5 hours!

    If you like modern warfare, then go for Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 1 & 2 - better than the COD series IMO but I fragging hate Clancy's godawful writing and jingoism (COD4 is not much better but at least you get to play an SAS soldier as well as a Marine, again, killing Arabs, again).

    Skate is tough but fun - but you have to like skating to go for it.

    The most anticipated games are Mass Effect (out in a week) and GTA IV (out when the PS3 version starts working). If GTA IV came out now on the Xbox, it would kill the PS3 over Christmas. Thank God its not out, I'd probably neglect my kiddie!

    Not a lot of games for the missus, perhaps Pinata or something like that. A DS is a much better solution for her - she can play at making pizzas on it while you kill people on the Xbox. If she's into music though you can get Guitar Hero II or III and go crazy together.

    Cheers bro, forgot about Bioshock! Will definitely be getting that... Looks fecking amazing!

    As for skate, I used to love the Tony Hawks games, but the Thrasher game for the PS1 was far better due to the realistic nature despite the cack graphics ... And so I hear, Skate is the most realistic yet and has the graphics too! Used to skate loads as well, worked in a skatepark, brother was sponsored by Nike, Flip, Ricta etc. etc. so thats definitely on the list...

    Cheers for your opinions everyone ;)

    I've been rinsing Assasin's Creed at the mo & can recommend that, if you want something thats a bit different from the rest. Bioshock is also a very decent game too!!!
    Games for the missus;
    Sonic
    Pirates at worlds end
    and Hexics, which is a game built in to the 360.
    My missus loves the above, hopefully yours will too!!

    Hexic comes standard with it and its the only built in game im afraid matey. You can buy old skool mega-drive games from X-Box live but you need to buy points to buy the games

    Even if you not into flight games, get Ace Combat 6. It fucking rocks. Blowing the shit outta stuff never grows old.:antitank:
