Had a launch Xbox 360, but sold it a couple of years ago. Just got a great deal on a 120GB Elite bundle, so I'm back in the 360 scene.

So what are some of the must-buy 360 games I've missed in the past few years? I also have a PS3.

Ain't much more than that which isn't also on PC or PS3. Fable 2 I guess, but I hated that excercise in simplicity.

Word around the sowing circle is that the 360 version is the one to get. The PS3 version suffers from long load times and "more" frame rate issues

And low resolution textures all around and missing missing shadows.

A poor port done by SEGA, not Platinum Games.

After some years, there got to be some good games that are cheap. The advantage of not having to buy games at launch day, they are as good a year later although multiplayer might be lacking (few opponents).

Here is a list of games (most of them I guess, excluding Live games etc)

You can sort by clicking the columns once or twice, like f.e. on date+region/exclusive.

best example of that is midnight club 3? something something. i rented that game on 360, had the game for 2 days and in those 2 days, at least 6 times while racing almost all textures dissapeared it was like driving into a black hole

I'd say good 360 games are the following:

Halo 3
Forza Motorsport 3
Crackdown
Project Gotham Racing 4


These are all exclusives. If you don't already have Halo 3, keep in mind that Halo 3 ODST comes with the multiplayer of Halo3 on the 2nd disc and all the DLC maps.

Gawd, you guys got that right. I played and finished it to damn well get the most out of my $60 then traded it in promptly as possible.

I'll add 'Dead Rising' as a game to get, just be sure you know it's a timed game when you start it.

I'm definitely a halo fan, but if i were just buying now i would skip Halo 3 and just get ODST. I think the multiplayer is the best part and single player is pretty lame in halo 3.

The opening level in the woods and the open level with the bikes were cool, rest of the game was crap. Bungie does that every time, every Halo game has like 2 or 3 cool levels and then 10 that are crap.

Oblivion and Mass Effect are quite good.
Pirates! from Marketplace is my most played after those.

left 4 dead 1 & 2 are good.

Magic the Gathering on XBLA is good and has an expansion now.
Ace Combat 6
