    Lol, that to me is ridiculous!

    Skyrim is also class, I've just spent the bulk the day playing it. My back hurts and I'm hungry now so having a cheeky breather and some dinner.

    I bought a 360 as PC gaming became too unreliable. You buy a triple AAA title you really want to play and you have no idea if it is going to work or not. You have no idea what the perfomance is going to be like. You keep buying new sound cards and graphics cards to try and make your PC more compatible with the latest drivers and games. But then some of the older games just randomly crash mid game. It was a nightmare. I spent more time messing around with cards and drivers instead of playing the actual games !

    So now I just play indie games on the PC, you can always trust them to work!

    It is also really easy to rent 360 games.

    I have really enjoyed these ones on the 360...

    The genesis/megadrive collection
    I really got totally hooked by skyrim
    Batman arkham asylum looks amazing
    Deus Ex human revolution
    dead rising 2
    forza
    marvel ultimate alliance
    fable 2 & 3
    star wars force unleashed
    pacman championship edition
    crackdown 1

    I found halo 3 a bit boring, gears of war I could not even get past the tutorial I just die, duke nuken forever starts with a pee and a boss battle and I can't get past the boss battle ! Just Cause 2 seemed fun but I did not get very far. Call Of Duty Black Ops was OK, had some spectacular set pieces but I had no idea what was going on half the time.

    Something about the Xbox that I wasn't expecting was the community aspect being a really positive thing. I like seeing who is online and what they are playing, I like comparing achievements and checking high scores on Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA). I don't have a WiiU but have the other big 3, and I think the Xbox does the best job of brining players together both in and especially out of game.

    "Gameroom" is worth checking out and there are several on these boards that will play challenges. There are some nice arcade re-dos and conversions like XMen, Final Fight, and Outrun that are pretty fun with the online leaderboards and drop-in options. Others too. . .

    A game you can get really cheap now from the early days of the console that is really great is Mass Effect. I'm sure you've heard of it - right?. This is available for PS3 and PC now, but the game is ubiquitous on 360 and you should check it out.

    I think my favorite XBLA game is Tomb Raider GOL - also not exclusive but great.

    Not actually heard of Mass Effect, might have to give it a go if I can pull myself away from Skyrim for long enough.

    Yeah, the social thing is cool and definitely going to give the game room a try.

    I remember Shadow Complex being a REALLY good game.

    Ignore Left 4 Dead 1 OR 2 for the 360. Get L4D2 for the PC instead. Free DLC, all the maps and characters from the first one and hundreds, maybe even thousands of usermade maps, campaigns, mods, skins, weapons, you name it. In fact, ignore ANY Valve game on the consoles. It's just not worth it. lol

    It's not that they're bad ports, they're EXCELLENT ports. Just a better deal on the PC by a LOT.

    If you want Read Dead Redemption though... I stumbled across my copy of it today. It's in an Undead Nightmare case or whatever, but the disc looks alright. So if you want it just shoot me a PM with your address or whatever and I'll ship it off eventually. lol

    Still completely into Skyrim, interspersed with a bit of indie gaming.

    I've got Skyrim for 360. Just haven't played it yet. I'm playing through Mass Effect since I've had it for about 6 years and have never played it. Great game!
