    Well I'm been a Sony console guy since the PS1. And I love my PS3, but just recently picked up a 360 to share its shelf on my entertainment system and I need some more good games for it.

    I already picked up Crimson Skies for it. And got a good deal on a used copy of Spiderman Web of Shadows that I'm enjoying. So looking for some more decent Xbox or 360 games to beef up my library.

    Not a big shooter fan, and I've already got Bioshock on the PC so that's out. Mostly a fan of action/adventure games, RPGs, and puzzle types games. So any one have a list of must have games that think I should try out?

    If you like rpg style games then you have to play fallout 3 if you haven't already.
    you dont like shooters much but i bought wanted: weapons of fate the other day and i know the movie is a kinda love it or hate it thing but no game has ever made me feel more badass lol, its short but you feel so cool bending bullets and jumping over everything.
    Mass effect is amazing and if yer on here then that means you have a sci fi vibe so i would say definately pick up that an its old so you can get it cheap and the sequel is on the way next year

    as far as puzzles is concerned, Peggle on Live is damn fun. It is like Pachinko and pinball combined. Very fun.

    wait till it gives you the RROD for no reason OR wait till it ruined your disks by scratching them for no reason...its loads of fun trying to get Microsoft to fix the problems, especially when they blame YOU for it

    Sorry there are some good games on the 360 but all the crap the 360 gives you for owning one...no its not worth it, stick with a ps3

    thats not fair :( 
    I've had my 360 for two years and tehn i got the red rings (which sucks) but i called xbox and they have an extended guarantee of 3 years for this specific problem and i have sent it off to be fixed free of charge all expenses paid by xbox and given free live membership to cover the time they have it. and what with the supremely superior amount of games on offer its a very small price to pay

    Portal, amazingly fun & available for download

    Psychonauts, likewise

    Crackdown, one of the best "sandbox-style" games.

    The Force Unleashed, pretty good despite a few character flaws.

    Saint's Row 2, like Grand Theft Auto only FUN.

    anything from the Halo series- I know there are a lot of complaints about it but I have fun with the games & you might too.

    BioShock, one of my favorites.

    Mass Effect for an RPG, or if your looking for more of a JRPG, Lost Odyssey. For a puzzle game, I love me some Lumines.

    castle crashers
    TMNT the arcade game
    ninja gaiden II (people complain about the difficulty, but it's nice to have a challenge)
    Gears of war is pretty good even if you're not a huge shooter fan. It's cover system gives a different enough spin to be worth checking out
    Lumines live (if you can stand the numerous microtransactions)
    Lego Batman is pretty good too if you don't already have it for ps3
    If you can find them I'd recommend any of the battlefront games for the xbox as well if you don't have them on the ps2 already

    Fable 2 is really a serious improvement over the first one, so even if you didn't enjoy the first one, you should give this one a shot.

    I tend to avoid shooters because I suck at them, especially on consoles. Bioshock I forced my way through on the PC because the game play was interesting and I loved the story. Otherwise I tend to avoid them especially the multiplayer side.

    I actually have Fallout 3 for PS3, but leaning towards the 360 version now for the DLC, still annoyed that its exclusive, but now I have a shot at it if I like. And looking at getting Mass Effect, though I've heard the PC version is a superior port.

    Definitely looking at Castle Crashers too. Alot of games on the arcade I'm interested in. One definite downside of the Xbox is the limited HD space, though 60gb should last awhile I wish they'd gone the route of the PS3 with the easily upgradable HD.
