Game decisions.

I only got my 360 recently, begining of this year, so I missed out on quite a few games. So now that they are cheap, like really cheap, I was wondering which should I get?: Dead Rising, Lost Planet, DOA4, or F.E.A.R?

Out of those? Id say Dead Rising. It was also my first Xbox360 game, and i got hours of fun out of it.

Then lucky for you I have soem questions! D: Is it true you only have 72 hours game time to complete it or you have to start all over? Also, by outo f those, is there anything else you'd reccomend instead?

Dead Rising is fun, but I hate working on a time limit.

DOA4 is a lot of fun online.

Never played the other two.

There is a time limit to the main story, although you wont notice it much. And you unlock a freeform mode.
But if you can find bioshock cheap, get it. Any 360 players should have played it

Yeah DOA's Pretty awesome as well. Fighting games get abit repetitive for me, but you may enjoy them

Heh, I was going to say no mentioning Bioshock too, lol. I've been wanting it, but it still being $40 makes it hard to get at the time with all new games coming out. I'll be poor >_>

As for Dead Rising, since it seems to be the most popular suggestion, how long is the time limit real time? I know it's 72 hours game time, what is that game time?

Dead Rising is definitely the best of them. There's a nice feeling to chopping up zombies that never really get's old, or at least not as quickly as other games mentioned.

Im not sure, i think it translates to about 12 hours real time?
I could be wrong

That would be plenty of time to beat a game if true.

Dead rising is a good game. DOA4 is pretty good too, but the online is for experts and discourages new players.

I would say Dead Rising and Lost Planet.

dead rising definitely tops that list for me too. it's got the most content in it for the valu. cost effective gaming y'all! oh yeah.

Seems like Dead Rising is winning. But since this is the first time LP was mention, how is it? Is it as hard as the second part of the demo where it feelsl ike the world is exploding? And is thermal energy really a pain in the ass?

The thermal energy a pain? yeah, but it's an alright game if you buy it used or rent it.

Ah that sucks. I really don't want to keep randomly passing out because I'm not collecting enough sh*t >_>

Lmao agreed. Their was a sword in Drakengard that did that, was the most powerful by one point yet drained health. I used it once, saw how rapidly my health went down, said f*ck that and moved onto the lwoer sword... Then I realized Drakengard sucks D:

Dead Rising. Lost Planet was crap, F.E.A.R is better on the PC and DOA 4, eh.

FEAR is a great game - I'd recommend that you get it.
