Default OT: Good XBox 360 games?

I'm probably getting one soon and I don't know what games to buy. I already know about Fear, 2K7, and Gears of War but what else?

Madden 07 is sick. Or NBA Live 07 has great graphics and is a great game. Most of the sports games are pretty good. I know all about sports games cause I only play them. So if you have questions about a certain game feel free to ask.

I'm sorry but...you should not be recommending NBA Live 07 AT ALL. Its such a horrible basketball simulation. Its pretty unanimous that NBA 2K7 dominates it in every way imaginable.

Other good X360 games as of now:

Call of Duty 3
Viva Pinata (highly underrated)
Dead Rising
The Godfather (just b/c Marlon Brando personally voiced Vito)

We all have our opnion and my personal favorite basketball game is NBA LIVE 2007. I respect your opnion. But I just think the graphics are great, the gameplay might not be the best but I certainly like it.

To be honest I had live 2005 and I hated it. I've played 2k before and it's my favorite. But really I'm mainly looking for something fun to play, don't care too much about graphics and stuff.

It should be illegal to recommend Live 07 over 2k7 to anyone who has a 360. Heck, I even got my 360 specifically to be able to get away from the horror that is Live 07.

That said: great games for the 360 include 2k7, Saints Row, Burnout Revenge and obviously Gears of War. Which won't be released here in Germany. Bummer.

How the phuck is Gears of War not gonna be released in Germany? By far one of the greatest video games of all time going back to Atarai, Vectrex. You need to have it shipped from the States to your crib (from someone).

360 games are region coded, unfortunately (which I didn't know until I bought one... now I miss out on Gears of War and that wicked zombie game).

Go to www.ign.com and read their reviews on 360 games. Probably the most respected videogame-site on the internet.

I second that. And www.gamerankings.com, of course.
