This right here, ladies and gentlemen, is currently my X360 back-catalog. It's huge, it's a nail in my eye, and I want your help on deciding what to play next. I recently s-ranked (for now) Borderlands 2, and I'm currently finishing up my first playthrough of XCOM.

However, out of these choices, what would you pick to play through next and why?

Thanks a lot for the help! :)

Dead Space 2. If you enjoyed the first, you'll probably enjoy this; they're fairly similar, but Dead Space 2 has more variety in locations and some great lighting. Also, the new one's coming out soon.

I voted for The Witcher 2 not realizing it was the 360.

Dark Souls. Take the game, and punch it until it respects you.

If you can get through the game, Dark Souls is an easy S-Rank. Do it, Cin, you know you want to.

S-Rank!

Bayonetta!

Singularity.. Aside from Star Ocean it's the oldest looking thing in your catalog, plus it can't take that long to finish, I never played it which I should have seeing that, that Wolfenstein game was pretty awesome..

Dark Souls is probably the best out of that list, but it takes forever to beat. I'd play Dead Space 2. You could finish that in a couple of sittings.

Star Oceans is a pretty cool game

Bayonetta because it is still in my backlog which sucks, need to just play it already

#11 Posted by SMTDante89 (2552 posts) -

Bayonetta easily. It's a really fun but fairly short game to get through. It's nice to come back to every now and then as well, so you can finish a game in your backlog and also have a neat little game to come back to later during downtime when it comes to new releases.

Dead Space 2 is short and sweet so finding time for it wouldn't be much of an issue.

#13 Posted by frankfartmouth (1016 posts) -

I'm surprised Bayonetta is winning this. I voted Dark Souls, but maybe I need to check Bayonetta out. It never looked all that great to me. Just looked like Devil May Cry with a chesty girl instead of a dude. Or maybe that's the whole point.

@Cincaid: I would play Bulletstorm because I started playing that and it's pretty good. I felt like General Sarrano was a better "villain I want to kill" than Handsome Jack was in Borderlands 2, but I can't exactly pin down why.

Dead Space 2. It's a super-fun thrill ride and the action has such a distinctive pacing to it that you'll have no trouble jumping into something like Bayonetta afterwards and feel like you're playing something different.

That's a problem I have with back-catalogues, they get clogged with samey games that you never want to play more than one of at a time.

You have to play Dead Space 2. It's so damn good.

#17 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4676 posts) -

I voted Ninja Gaiden 2. It was calling to me, even though there are better games on that list. NG2 is still a quality game.

#18 Posted by Cincaid (2953 posts) -

Thanks for the voting all! Figured I'll play Bayonetta during sunlight, and Dead Space 2 during spooky hours. Sounds like a grand plan in my head, at least.

#19 Posted by Canteu (2821 posts) -

Short games first dude. That is the law. Bayonetta, Dead Space 2, Bullet Storm and Ninja Gaiden 2 are all good choices.

This is one hot back catalogue filled with games you should have already played!

#20 Posted by Hunkulese (2658 posts) -

Just go alphabetically.

#21 Posted by Video_Game_King (36124 posts) -

Ninja Gaiden 2, since it's the only one I've played (I'm getting around to FF13-2, though).

I actually have DS2 but haven't played it yet. I'm trying to finish up some games myself. DS2 is definitely on my list. Especially considering that before you know it, DS3 is going to be out.

Play Dead Space 2. It's relatively simple to get through the linear story and you won't have to go back to it unless you want to do a harder difficulty.

#24 Posted by CJduke (784 posts) -

Dead Space 2 or the Witcher 2, they are both amazing games

#25 Posted by SuperWristBands (2266 posts) -

Bayonetta. It's fantastic. There are some great games on that list but Bayonetta is the best imo.

#26 Posted by StarFoxA (5140 posts) -

Dead Space 2 has some super cool set pieces, and it's pretty short (something like seven hours), so you can blast through it in a few days.

Essentially, this.

Every game on the list is worthy, and becasue of the diverse genres it really depends on what you are in the mood.

#29 Posted by kerse (2104 posts) -

Dead space 2 is awesome.

#30 Posted by MordeaniisChaos (5730 posts) -

Woops, I clicked Bulletstorm instead of Witcher 2. Bulletstorm is cool but it really only shines on the PC in my opinion.

#31 Posted by Kaowas (124 posts) -

I recommend Bulletstorm! It takes a bit to get going, but it's quite fun, and short. Sadly I didn't find much replay value to it, but for what it is I think it's quite good!
