Hey guys, I need you help please. I am like thinking of to buy a game for one of my friend, who player XBox quite a lot. Thought this might be the best Xmas gift for him this year. I play games, but not very passion about it tho. So donít research much about the new games which are release.
But what I know is that quite a lot of you here play games a lot. I would like have some advice on getting a good XBox game.
Any advices are much appreciated J
without knowing your friend's preferences it's impossible to give meaningful advise.
Endwar, Fable 2, Call of Duty 5, Farcry 2, Fallout 3 are some which are promised to be really god, and they're kinda new ;) I know from owning that Endwar, Farcry 2 and Fallout 3 are very good games ;)
I'm not sure that it would be too appropriate to assume he means XBox 360 when he said XBox. It's best to pose a request for clarification first.

Thanks a lot guys,
Call of Duty 5. Pretty much pwns everything out there if you are a FPS and WW2 fan.
Fallout 3 has excellent graphics and storyline but may be too "tame" for someone who's mostly into pure shooters.
Farcry 2 is a kinda good FPS ;)
Gears of War 2, maybe? :P
Yeah, ssharish, if you really cared about your friend then you'd let your friend try some of the other suggestions. Broaden his gaming experience and gain levels in something else... :p

Yeah Fallout 3 seems like a good one, been doing a small research now lol. Whiteflags yeah I do really care about him, he is been known to be for like quite a long time (to be honest, it’s been years now). You are right in saying that may be he should broaden his gaming experience.
I also came across the following games, what do you all think?
1. Prince of Persia
2. The elder Scrolls
3. Left 4 Dead
I guess Prince of Persia looks like a good one. Which is of a completely a different story line and not a shooting games, which may allow him to experience some sort of a new gaming experience. What do you all recon?
Thank a lot for your reply and help!
1. It's pretty good. I didn't play through the whole thing, but I'd say it's a decent title. Nothing I would rave about.
2. Very good game. It's been around for a while and it's available on the PC, as well (which I would recommend over the XBox 360 version). I'd make sure he hasn't played it already. Otherwise, it's something worth playing.
3. Another very good game. Again, I didn't play though the whole thing, but I did play for a while at a friends house and it has been on my to purchase list once I actually get the time to play it. It's a co-op game primarily, so if you'd like to give him a great gift, then purchase this game for him and yourself (assuming you have X-Box 360), get some headsets, and play co-op with him and a few other friends if you can find them.
I've heard that Gears of War 2, Fallout 3, and Call of Duty 5 are great. I have my doubts about COD 5 since Infinity Ward did not code it but time will tell. Also GTA 4 has had great reviews but mixed post-release reactions. Several of my friends have said GTA 4 gets 'old' after a bit. Perhaps the thrill of the GTA series is beginning to run a bit thin.
Which Elder Scrolls title would that be?
Elder Scrolls 3 (Morrowind) is great but he may find the graphics disappointing as it's getting old.
Elder Scrolls 4 (Oblivion) is getting rave reviews but I've never played it so I can't tell from personal experience. It supposedly uses the same graphics engine as does Fallout 3.
OK I am thinking of to go for like:
Prince of Persia
Left 4 deaf
A bit confused, which one ?????? or just buy both lol
Thanks a lot guys!
Well, if your friend is into FPS' go for Left 4 Dead ;) ... Havn't played Prince of Persia, but it doesn't look good :P Anyways, let not that change your judgement, but Left 4 Dead pwns ;)
