What 360 game do i NEED to have?
i'm not psycho about gaming like some of you, but i DO enjoy a good one from time to time.
my 18-year old cousin works at Game Stop, and when i queried him, without hesitation he said "Skyrim"
now what say you?

What are your preferences? Skyrim is a time consuming game. Just go to gamestop and demand he take your money for Red Dead Redemption instead.

If you're looking for Role Playing Games, go with Mass Effect 1 and 2. They're about 20 bucks each. Mass Effect 3 is coming out on March 6, and it's going to be huge. Another RPG I really enjoy is Final Fantasy XIII. It got a lot of flack for being linear, but it's still a really terrific game. I'm re-playing that one right now because Final Fantasy XIII-2 is coming out on January 31.
I can't really recommend Skyrim since it doesn't interest me at all despite the amazing reviews.
Some other things I can probably recommend is Grand Theft Auto IV and Red Dead Redemption. Both those games tell a really good story too.

Left for Dead 2. Probably like $20 now. AMAZING game.

he immediately gathered my criteria across board from what i've heard about Skyrim since. i bought a 360 a while back, and it was my first system in a long time. this time round i was looking for bang for buck because it was going to be a recreational thing. i was never good at first person types but had interest in them because having to learn how to play - the challenge is what i like. so i wanted games that'd last me some time.

i know the name Red Dead Redemption, so clearly it seems to have been a game to be reckoned with.
i DO like RPG's - i played D&D in my pre-gescom days, and i haven't played a Final Fantasy since, oh whatever the last edition for the Playstation 2 was.

You have to go with Skyrim. If you're into RPGs, it'll be one of the best games you've played to date.
It's an amazing, immersive game and if you're a gamer with patience you're sure to love it!
For more of a quick fix, I second Red Dead Redemption or GTA IV (which is surprisingly cheap nowadays, think I saw it at Best Buy for $20). But, if you don't like GTA then you probably won't like Red Dead Redemption either (same engine and definitely the same idea). But I think if you really give either one a shot it might grow on you!
Also strongly recommend Portal 2 if you like puzzle games. It's another excellent experience.

Portal 2 sounds interesting

Skyrim is worth picking up. I'm not even a fan of RPG's, but I'm glad I gave the game a chance.

Skyrim will take over your life. The official guide is is 650 pages, and there is endless stuff you can do.
