Check out Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance 2. It's got full co-op, a cool story, and she can play as one of like 2 or 3 bad-ass female butt-kickers.

It's an original Xbox game, but it's backwards compatible and probably the best thing you're going to find.

Forza 2?

Madden 09

In any case, I am assuming your girlfriend is a casual gamer? if so I would suggest something simple and fun. I would suggest you getting --->

Project Gotham Racing 4


Just for the simple fact that you can play online, custom your car and everything... if you want to speed things up and your girl is a hardcore gamer, probably stuff like halo3, and rainbow 6 and Call of duty 4 will peak her interests?

uh...Rock Band.

I think Jayge's suggestion of Baldur's Gate might be your best choice.

My GF bought me a game once, it was GT Pro series, i'll never let a girl buy a game for me again.

As far as recomendations go i say Viva Piñata, it's cute, fun and addictive.

#17 Posted by Ma7moud (805 posts) -

Viva Pinata both of you will love this game.

I know it's too late now but the lego games are pretty great for this kind of thing.  My girlfriend and I just played through lego Indy and had a great time.  It's not too hard control-wise (she's a bit of a n00b) but the puzzles are at a pretty good level - not so easy you can just run through them but not so hard you actually have to look them up.

Gears of War. Nothing turns a girl on more than a big gun with a chainsaw on it.

Having seen some of the other posts that were deleted earlier in the thread, I'd guess not.  On the contrary, it amazes me that some of these people are allowed to stay.  Not necessarily the three names above, but I'd guess there are some users here who've had over twenty of their posts deleted.

Meh, I'm no troll.
Just highly opinionated.

Guitar Hero 3 if you have the money. My GF loves it.

#41 Posted by roofy (1005 posts) -

Viva Pinata is good for chicks.
if she waits until october or november then maybe Banjo.
and surprisingly Gears of War will also do. (i've met more girls on Gears than any other game)
i guess they really just like to chainsaw people

My WIFE LOVED being "god" in mario galaxy. Collecting stars. Pickin on baddies. Helping me out along the way. We felt like a real team. Plus its totally noob friendly since she can't die. I highly recommend Super Mario Galaxy.

#43 Posted by Gamer_152 (14058 posts) -

This thread is on fire and is heading straight for a crash landing, before we meet certain doom I'd like to recommend Rock Band, Guitar Hero 3 or Viva Pinata.

Why do people keep pointing to old Xbox games?  You can get those in the bargain bin, that's not a gift.

My friend's wife likes to play shooters as long as they can play together.  They've done Gears of War & other games of that nature. Also Two Worlds & a few others. Essentially any shooter that allows for co-op play. The new Too Human allows for co-op play, I think. Maybe you can start with that?

Also, you could get Marvel Ultimate Alliance. That was a fun game. Gals like Tomb Raider too..at least some do.

What a coincidence, your girlfriend is buying me a game too.

Too Human only has online co-op, Two Worlds is an RPG with broken co-op due to terribly forced netcode o.0

I agree with viva pinata, maybe lego starwars or lego Indian jones?

#48 Posted by wefwefasdf (6729 posts) -

Rockband would be great but I doubt that is what she meant by a game. Blue Dragon is cute I guess.
