    hey all

    i havent had any console for about 7 months now , and in this time i have still been keeping up with the latest gaming news , in the last two weeks i have considered buying a New Xbox 360 , The reason why i sold it 7 months ago was because i got terribly bored of it and it would sit on the dashboard for hours at a time :/

    Can anyone help me regain my interest in gaming with some ideas on what to do when i get bored on it ? (whether it be game reccomendations etc.)


    Thanks

    AC:B and Fallout NV are both awesome, get them!!

    Game with friends (local friends or online, your choice), it's always much more fun.

    edit: someone has bad taste

    As above, Assasins Creed: Brother hood and Fallout: New Vegas are fantastic games.

    Don't fall into the FPS trap most people do, it's pointless and over-hyped. To me, FPS died after the original Modern Warfare.

    AC: B is good wondering in the city, not a game you could play with your mates as much. Online is AWESOME on AC: B if you have a headset.

    Black Ops/Modern Warfare are good for that "one more game" kind of feel (online at least)!

    I own all the of the current gen consoles and have never really taken to the 360, just seem to find more games that suit my taste on the PS3, so it might be worth considering other consoles if the 360 didn't do it for you in the first place? (Also has free online, which is ace!)

    The Metal Gear Solid series is definitely worth a look at. Can take a bit of time to get into but if you want a game into which you can completely indulge yourself, I don't think there's much better.

    Well, both of those games are enjoyable offline (AC:B providing you've played the first two/know the story). Fallout 3 is really good too if you hadn't played that.

    I've played CoD online since CoD4 and it's okay, but I certainly wouldn't enjoy it without my friends. You could perhaps rent one of those if you wanted to try it.

    But there's loads of other great, older games (depending on which console you get) so there's a lot to choose from. Metal Gear Solid, Gran Turismo, Little Big Planet, Fifa, Prince of Persia, Mirror's Edge; that's just some of the stuff I've played over the years.

    I agree with the love for Metal Gear. Absolutely classic series of games. Never has there been a more complicated and gripping storyline in gaming.
    Returning to the classics might be a good idea. When I can't find anything that looks half decent I go back and play through old games. I do the whole 100% complete all-weapons all-sidequests standing-on-one-leg-whilst-humming run through. It's difficult....

    Starcraft 2 is a must if you have a powerful PC.

    Starcraft 2 can run on any mediocre computer, I have it on my laptop (GeForce 9300M 256 GPU, 3 GB of RAM and 2.3GHz AMD CPU) and it works fine!

    I agree though, Starcraft 2 is a must for anyone - I have been recommending it to every gamer I know and most of the time I get a lame reply like "I don't like RTS cuz I only play FPS", people like that aren't really gamers at all.
