Getting an Xbox 360. Suggest good xbox360 games?

Okay okay, so I'm going to be working over the summer and I'm considering buying an xbox360 because none of the wii titles are interesting me lately.

First, I'd like to know how much an xbox360 costs nowadays?
Second, I'd like to know what good xbox360 games are worth buying these days.

These are the two games I'm sure I'm getting. Don't judge me.

Sonic Generations.
Halo: Reach.

Well, by the time you get one, more will be out, but here's what I can think of just this year.

Mortal Kombat
Portal 2
Brink*
LA Noire*
Duke Nukem Forever*
Borderlands
Red Dead Redemption
Half of the XBLA if you can do that
ME1 and 2
SSFIV
The Orange Box


That's just what I can come up with right now at 4 AM.

Do note though that some of these aren't out yet, but will be by mid-summer. The ones with asterisks aren't out yet

From most to least expensive

Get a PS3. Honestly with all the new things with the current hack and such, it should be going down in price and its overall a good system. That is, if you dont have it yet.

But if your stubborn and really do want to screw ourselves, here are some good games under 20 bucks.

Bayonetta (seriously GET IT)
Blazblue: Continuun Shift
Mirror's Edge
Konami Classics Vol. 1 (namely for Symphony of the Night)
Super Meat Boy (digital download at gamestop is at a permanent 10.00$)
Kameo: Elements of Power
Sega Super Star Tennis / Xbox Complation Disc (namely for Pac-man Championship Edition)

Depends on what you like, really.

Here are some of the games I enjoyed playing. :3
-Dragon Age I & II
-Gears of War 1 & 2 (I liked 2 better) and Part 3 will be coming out later this year
-Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (XBL Arcade) <This game kicks major ass
-Castlevania: Harmony of Despair (XBL Arcade) <This one too, kicks major ass
-Castle Crashers (XBL Arcade) This game is a Comedic RPG game, it's fun and all, but it gets very boring after a few times of passing the game with different characters.
-Alan Wake
-Left 4 Dead 1 & 2
-Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World (XBL Arcade)
-Fable II
-Madden 10
-Rock Band 2
-Borderlands
-Final Fantasy XIII
-BioShock
-Marvel Vs Capcom 2 (XBL Arcade)
-Marvel Vs Capcom 3
-Metal Slug 3 (XBL Arcade)

You probably won't like some of them, but again, it all depends on your taste in video games.

Didn't expect that many replies. Thank you guise. Anyway, this is a pretty long post. You can skim to the bottom if you want.

I watched an entire LP of portal 2. The game seems WAY too short. Even though the mechanics of the game are godly I favor longevity over one time fun. ON THE OTHER HAND, Red dead redemption looks amazing. I'll seriously consider buying it.
EDIT: Red dead redemption looks so badass. I'm definitely buying it!

I'm not very tech savvy so I wouldn't know how to hack a PS3 anyway. And I'm too stubborn to learn how. Anyway, Bayonetta looks more like a button smashing game more than anything else, and super meat boy is too difficult. I'll check out the rest later, though. Thanks.

Does Portal 2 feature anything interesting other than the campaign?
And ohyes, oblivion is amazing. Is it multiplayer though?

My friend suggested me gears of war 3 and little me big world (Or something along the lines of that), I dislike the L4D and rock band series tbh. I'll check out the other ones, though. Thanks.


The reason I'm so focused on getting Halo reach particularly is because it reminds me of Metroid, which is why I'm also contemplating getting dead space 2. The multiplayer is a HUGE bonus too, since me and my sister usually like to stretch the fun of a game. It's the reason why I KNOW she'll love the forge world.

I should have been clearer before, but if you guise know any good multiplayer or shooter games that are kinda sorta like metroid and not kinda sorta like call of duty please post a few.

Little Big World? I believe that's a Ps3-only game.
As for the Multiplayer game question, I wouldn't really know what to recommend, seeing as how the only Multiplayer shooter I like to play is Gears 2. Lots o' gore. Gore makes me happy.

LittleBigPlanet and its sequel are PS3 exclusive.

Also, Portal 2 has a Co-op campaign. Nothing competitive at the moment.

As for what you ask shooter-wise, I don't really know. I'm not high on FPS really, but I have listed the ones I liked/played.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Just kidding.

Some games I like include:
The Orange Box
Portal 2
BioShock (2) (Choose one or the other. Personally, I think the original is a little better)
Borderlands
Battlefield Bad Co. and Battlefield Bad Co. 2
Historical Call of Duty games (WWII-era and Black Ops)
Left 4 Dead (2) (Personally I didn't think 2 was much of an improvement, I would recommend one or the other.)
GTA IV
Mirror's Edge
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit

The choice is up to you, but I think all of the ones I listed are solid choices.
