I have a mate who I am always trying to introduce new games to and have given him lots over time but only a few have stuck. His fave of all time is Resident Evil 4 which he has played hundreds of times, but he has also enjoyed, Portal 1 & 2, Uncharted 2, Metroid Prime, Half-Life 2 and various Zeldas.
He has finally got an HD TV to go with his XBOX and is asking me for recommendations. I have given him so many good games in the past which haven't worked (this may be becuase playing things like RDR on stand-def is pointless) but I was wondering if you guys had any ideas? Basically from the list above he seems to like, straight ahead, classic feeling, kind of linear games with systems and action you can really master through lots of playthroughs. Any ideas for what I can offer?
