normally, I wouldn't give IGN the time of day.. but for a simple list like this, why not?
Game Reviews at IGN
Hey guys, long story short, I picked up a new 360 E for dirt cheap, way cheaper than black friday deals even. I skipped the PS3/Xbox 360 generation, but do own a Wii. I do all my gaming on PC though, and have played/own virtually every big name PC game over the last 10 years or so. I don't console enough to justify a PS4 and I would have went with a PS3 but couldn't pass up this deal, and already have a Blu Ray player. I just want something to mess around with while relaxing on the couch.
So anyways, now I have this Xbox 360, but do not know what games to get. I like almost everything except sports games/sim racing games. I haven't followed much of anything on consoles of the last gen. I plan on picking up FF13 and Red Dead Redemption, as I totally missed both those and heard they are good. But what are some other good games to pick up that I probably didn't get on PC? There's gotta be some gems on this beast.
Tales of Vesperia
Dragons Dogma(dark arisen)
Just off the top of my drunken head, I'm sure there are more. There may even be a thread if you search... Or yeah go look at the top rated that aren't sports/racing games.
Totally forgot about Dragons Dogma! Saw this a long time ago and wished it would come to PC, will definitely add that one to the list. How about any Metal Gears worth playing? Or are those PS3 only? I heard Halo Reach is really good? I'm not in it for the Xbros FPS brawls, but I'm a sucker for an epic story.
metal gear is ps3 exclusive. all halo content is shit
I've always been a big fan of the GoW series. I think I saw 2/3 for 50% off when I was on the 360 last night too so may be worth a look.
Damn can't pass that up. Bought.
Dragon's Dogma was fucking garbage when I played it. Most of my time was spent trekking across the land because the game lacked a viable method of fast travel. I have no clue if they've changed it or not.
GoW series. Mass Effect series, even if the ultimate ending is garbage. Assassin's Creed series. Batman: Arkham series. And a big 2nd to Lost Odyssey. Loved that game.
If you haven't played it, the newest Tomb Raider was pretty bad ass. I picked that up for Xbox on release day and absolutely loved it.
If you didn't get Bioshock for PC, grab those. Most of the best Xbox games are available for PC so it's hard to recommend any games.
As mentioned, can't go wrong w/ GoW. One of my favorite trilogies. Very solid games from gameplay perspective. Most find the story shallow, but they're not unbearable at all. If you do find it shallow, easily overcome by the pacing, which is very well done. Man's man story.
Dragon's Dogma is console only and a great game if you dig that kinda playstyle. Sorta like Dark Souls meets Dragon Age. Veryyyy long game and replayable. Good bang for your buck.
Not a fan of the halo story arch myself, but it's popular for a reason, so you could always look into those. Halo 4 was actually pretty good IMO. Pretty heavy shit goes down between Chief and Cortana, so may be worth checking out.
Can't really think of any other exclusives. Everything else looks better on PC & cheaper w/ steam.....
Tales of Vesperia
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen
Final Fantasy XIII-2
Ace Combat 6
Resonance of Fate
Star Ocean: The Last Hope
Lost Odyssey & Tales of Vesperia is all a man needs for 360 RPGs
Nevermind, just read The Division is next gen only now. But it is coming to PC so I'll probably get it there.

I also would recommend bayonetta if you enjoy games like Devil May Cry and what not.. hell, you can get the HD remakes as well in that case on the 360 as well lol
What are the best coop games that you guys like? Besides Borderlands.
