Default OT: Whats a good XBOX360 game out there?

Im goin to the store in a bit. Thinkin of pickin up a new game. Any recommendations?

Is the new FIFA out yet?


I'd like to get a shooting game but havent really liked any since really started to like the SOCOM series a couple of years ago. Any games with that style, 3rd person shooter out for the 360?

Anything?

New Fifa game is out. Supposedly IGN gave it a 6.8.

I dunno. Gears of War is coming out on Tuesday. Supposedly thats supposed to be a great FPS.

NBA 2k7 is supposedly amazing.

2k7 is great, but my cd got scratched after just one week and it was in the 360 the entire time. Wierd....

Playing shooters without a mouse is just bull**** to me somehow.

Agreed. I have tried and tried to play Halo on 360 and I just can't get it. I have no feel for the whole... 2 sticks for movement thing. nothing feels natural. whenever I try to look down I look up and whenever I try to look up I look down and if I do get it right I look too far up or down.

SOCOM2 was my favorite. My tag on both SOCOMs were "Marquette". Man I want to play that game again so badly. When I sold it I thought the 360 would make me forget all about it but it hasnt... at all.

Socom 3 made me forget about Socom as a franchise.

i heard madden 07 sucked on the 360.

and fifa is for casual gamers. if you like the REAL thing, then you have to wait for pro evolution soccer. that coems out in '07. Real as in fluid gameplay and stuff. Fifa is for casual players that aren't so intense into it.

Pro Evolution 6 is already out and, as always, is 10x better than FIFA
