What cool games are there for the X-Box 360?

What cool games are there for the X-Box 360?

so… I can get an XBox 360 for £160 (saving £40).

Or, y’know, save up for a laptop so I can play Civilisation 5 and Portal 2.

Or a mobile phone since my G1 is going the way of the ghost.

Or just save up for my forthcoming child.

Decisions, decisions…

So what brilliantly cool games can I play with the XBox 360 that I can’t play with my PS3? (which is gathering dust in the corner, alas!)

    Obviously there are LOADS of brilliant games for the Xbox, but it does depend what kind of games you like…

    In terms of puzzle games, I reiterate the list gave you on Twitter:
    Peggle, Droplitz, Braid, Chime, Hexic, Geometry Wars, all on XBLA all fab.

    Portal 2 will be on Xbox so no worries there.

    If you want fun, colourful good time games – all the Lego franchise games are excellent, also both Viva Pinata games, Sonic and SEGA Superstars Racing,

    For comic geekdom X-Men Origins: Wolverine isn't bad but Batman:Arkham Asylum is the Daddy of those, and the second one is out next year. (but those are also PS3, thinking about it)

    Zombies: Dead Rising (2nd one due soon) and both Left 4 Deads

    For utterly bonkers hatstand what the eff? Bayonetta (actually I think that's PS3 too)

    For Space Saga – Mass Effect 1 & 2 (3 may be out next year, more likely 2012)

    Scene It and Trivial Pursuits are also excellent and good group games.

    Does that help? 😉

    I'm in the market for a new 360 as my old one decided to RRoD and cannot be salvaged. Your post prompted me to do some investigation:

    With the voucher from Microsoft Store you're actually paying £170, with £9.80 to be claimed back in 12 months time (assuming the voucher site is still in existence).
    From Amazon they're £190 but come with a 12 month subscription to XBOX Live, worth £31, and an HDMI cable, worth £3.
    From Argos they're £200 but with a three game bundle – Gears of War 2, PGR4, Fable 2 – worth approximately £15.
    From Game they're £210 but with a two game bundle – Forza 3 and Bioshock 2 – worth approximately £16.

    All things considered I'm inclined to go for the Amazon option. I appreciate this isn't what you asked, but thought it would be of interest.
