What's everyone playing on their Xbox 360?

Asked by alabare (282points) August 9th, 2007

I've been fairly dormant with my xbox 360 for quite a few months. I was really into Battlefield 2 multiplayer on xbox live. Looking to get back into an online shooter of some variety. Any suggestions?

Oh man - I guess a little bit of everything, I can't get enough of my 360! Call of Duty 2 or 3 would be a great online shooter, Gears of War is incredible, Lost Planet is great for online play, even a little Splinter Cell has some fun online capabilities. I myself am currently enjoying Dead Rising, Elder Scrolls: Shivering Isles, Saints Row, and Tony Hawk Project 8. Either way, if you decide on a game let me know your xbox live tag so we can game-it-up!

I had high hopes for Call of Duty 2 online but was really disappointed with the match up process and lag. Has this improved at all in the last year or so?

I have really like COD 3. Much better than 2! Some friends of mine have really liked Dirt too, if you are into racing games.

I'm waiting for Assassins Creed!

travistotz's avatar

Yeah agreed with zacho on that one, COD3 is better online play then 2 - but if you're looking for a online shooter, either is still great in my opinion. Yeah, Dirt is great too!

Assassins Creed is gonna be incredible!

Try Gears Of War ( great for both online or ofline), wait for Call of Duty 4 to come out which is going to be awesome

zacko's avatar

I agree, COD4 is going to be sweet!

I broke down and went in an entirely different direction and picked up Command & Conquer. Figured I would hold off a month or two before I pick up any more shooters. Looks like a lot of quality stuff is due here shortly.

Rainbow Six: Vegas or Gears of War!

travistotz's avatar

Yeah i totally forgot, Rainbow Six: Vegas is THE game to get, especially if you're looking for a great online shooter! But good call on Command and Conquer either way!

i dont have a 360:(

alabare's avatar

I was leaning heavily toward Rainbow Six: Vegas...but knowing it's been out for as long as it has, I passed. I'm stupid like that. If a game is older than a few months, I feel like I shouldn't purchase something better is sure to be right around the corner. Yet, I download classic games on Xbox live and Wii all the time. Like I said, stupid.

lost planet woot!

zacko's avatar

Is Lost Planet worth it? Can it hold me over till Halo 3 and Assassins Creed? I heard it was good . . .

travistotz's avatar

Lost Planet's great - sometimes frustrating, but overall pretty great, especially online play.

zacko's avatar

I hear it has the standard gun aiming issues that capcom always has (RES. Evil & dead rising)?

travistotz's avatar

@zacko - maybe a little, but overall I was quite impressed with the aiming system, the RE and Dead Rising aiming schemes pale in comparison. As far as something holding you over til Halo 3 and Assassins Creed, have you tried and Splinter Cell games, great gameplay, great controls, great games! What about Saints Row - a great GTA rip-off, but truly kills time incredibly. But yes, I would most definitely recommend Lost Planet.

zacko's avatar

@ travistotz - Yes, I have played all of them bu the new one, is it worth it, because I did really love all the others? I know they are time intensive? Plus, the next one they are coming out (Conviction) with looks incredible, kind of like the Bourne Identity!

I just finished Fallout 3, it was really good. Excited about getting Star Ocean tomorrow though. Also, check out Castle Crashers if you haven’t yet… it’s amazing.
