So I got my hands on an old 360 and was curious if there are any games that I should look into that I can't play on any other platform, whether they be XBLA games or something that I can buy physically

Fable II is good if you're up for it.

Lost Odyssey is the best JRPG of the last console generation. If you like JRPG's you should get a copy.

@oscar__explosion: I would counter with Tales of Vesperia, but yeah the 3 JRPG's on 360 that are exclusive that matter are Tales of Vesperia, Lost Odyssey, and Blue Dragon.

Drive to the future. It's a driving force series. Your sent back in time to save mankind. In the future man has used all the fuel, racing is all they want to do but can't, it's up to you to win the race and save future racing. You drive to survive the presentime. What are We Going To Do? We're going to win this race. How about some lemonade?

I really wish I had finished that game, but the load times to get into random battles were excruciatingly long.

Miner Dig Deep. Only like $2 on XBLA and great for nights filled with insomnia.

  • Fable II
  • Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
  • Lost Odyssey
  • Viva Piñata: Trouble In Paradise
  • Ninja Gaiden II (the good version is only on 360)
  • Ninja Gaiden: Black (again, best version is on the 360 store)
  • Halo Reach
  • Dead Rising
  • Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2
  • Crackdown, I guess

I'm sure there are a ton more, but those are the ones that stand out to me that I believe are only on 360, still. Maybe some of them got PC releases, probably not.

Anybody got an opinion on Fable 3? I happen to have a copy and was wondering if it was worth going into or if I should just go out and buy a copy of Fable 2

I really enjoyed Fable 3, but it has its issues. A lot of people hated the last third of that game and I can understand why (it really didn't bother me, personally). I'm inclined to say give it a shot if you already have a copy.

@meatball: I'll probably pop it in and see if it sticks with me for a while. Thanks for the feedback!

Gears of war up until 3, Gears 2 if you only like muliplayer(IMO).

Fable and halo like others have said (fable 2 is the best but fable 3 was a good game that got a lot of flack at the time because of a weaker second half).

I had lost odyssey but ended up selling it back to gamestop after not playing it for over a year, kinda wish i'd kept it.

Codemened 1 and 2, very very good games especially if you like horror.

Witcher 2 if you don't have a PC to play it on.

Shadow complex (it recently got hd remasters though)

@s3ank1m: I liked Fable 3 even more then 2. And I also avoided getting into the situation that caused everyone to dislike the game, by having an almost infinite amount of money before the end game. The perks of buying every piece of land in the game.

@asurastrike: did you install the game? I wanna say the load times got cut in half when you do that.

@msuhitman: I'll agree with adding Tales of Vesperia, but Blue Dragon is kind of a stretch. It was a decent game but pretty plagued with framerate issues.

Alan Wake and Crackdown come to mind...

All the 360 Halos (maybe not 4, it's fine but not special)

Ninja Gaiden 2

Viva Pinata

Dead Rising

Gears of War (I loved all four games)

Fable 1-3

I Made a Game with Zombies in it

The Gunstringer (fun Kinect game with great DLC)
