Looking for some game suggestions that I could get pretty cheap. I will play pretty much anything, I know the 360 isn't known for rpg but would love to find one but really just a good action game.

Blue Dragon or Lost Odyssey are pretty damn good on the JRPG front.

never been a fan of RPG, but what about mass effect series or fallout? *advisory; i've never played either, looked TOO RPG for me, but they're quite popular ;)

dishonored was a blast, but pretty short.

bioshock i highly recommend.

left 4 dead if you play online maybe?

hate to say it, but if you've been out for years, did you try any of the modern call of duty's? (feel i'm gonna get blasted for recommending them, but for someone not gamed in a while; they'd be as fun as call of duty 4 was when it hit..well maybe, depending who you can find to play ;)

red dead redemption.

portal series is a must IMO if you missed them.

far cry 3 was pretty good too i thought.

assassins creed series? (2 is best IMO)

Been about 4 or 5 years so I'm not completely out of the loop. I just beat borderlands 1 about a week ago and just started 2. I'm also about halfway into assassin's creed 2. I have played fallout 3 and new Vegas which I love. I like rpg but more into a action type rpg.

Just Cause 2

+ massive open world, beautiful scenery, really fun game mechanics.

- poor, cheesy story, slightly repetitive

My personal 10 favorite form the XBOX360:

1. Mass Effect: Play all 3. You will not regret it.

2. Dragon Age: Play both…the third is coming out this year for the XBOXONE.

3. Fallout: Play both. Starting with New Vegas may ruin 3.

4. Farcry 3. Farcry 2 is okay, but doesn’t hold a candle to 3. Not story related.

5. Assassin’s Creed: Play the first because if you start with a later game, it may ruin it. 2 and Brotherhood are amazing games. I haven’t made it through Revelations or beyond yet.

6. Deus Ex: Human Revelation. The Director’s cut is to be avoided.

7. The Witcher 2. Difficult game but very rewarding.

8. The Elder Scrolls. Oblivion is older and if you’re a character min/max player, can be frustrating. Skyrim is an incredible game that I put over 100 hours for each character I’ve played.

9. X-COM: Enemy Within. Avoid buying Unknown. Within is the expansion, DLC and Unknown combined.

10. Borderlands: Start with the first. Both are incredibly fun to play.

I have a bunch of honorable mentions:

Alpha Protocol, Bioshock Series, Dishonered, Dragon’s Dogma, Dungeon Siege III, Enslaved, Lost Odyssey, Magna Carta 2, Red Dead Redemption, Remember Me, Sacred 2: Fallen Angel, Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution, Star Ocean: The Last Hope, Tales of Vesperia, The Last Remnant, and Tropico 4.

These are games that I’ve played and enjoyed. Most of them are good and cheap by now as well. Your mileage (and others) may vary.

Dark Souls (Action RPG)

Bayonetta (Action Game)


These are two of my favorite Xbox 360 games, maybe give them a look?
