Just checked gamestop's preorder list. only see 20ish games for this year, and nothing really interests me.
Guess I still need my original xbox for the rest of year.

If you dont find you got your $$'s worth already, and feel you wont in April, you need to find a new hobby, no offense.

No he's right.

The selection is rather slim.

You can't possibly deny that no matter how narrow minded you may be.

I agree, there are not enough games. In the past I could have cared less, but not for the 360. When the original XBOX was released they had Halo, which was game of the year. It wouldn't have bothered me if that was the only game they launched for 6 months, it rocked. When LIVE was launched, they already had Ghost Recon, another kickass game. Now that the 360 launch came and went, I am left with playing COD2, which isn't so bad, but I heard it best online the other night (yes I actually got into a match), it was referred to as "Lag of Duty". Now I know this is a problem with the host and not the game, but without being able to create a room, who knows who will end up hosting. That was a little bit of a rant, sorry. I am sure that I will completely forget about the lack of games once GRAW and Battlefield are released, if they aren't delayed until 2007. Those two will keep me busy until the next console, which I can only speculate will be called XBOX720 HA HA

Your problem isn't that there aren't enough games to feed your need... your problem is that you haven't found one with the replay value of Halo1. I believe the 360 launch had the most (perhaps the 2nd most) games available for a console launch. The difference is, none of them keep you interested after beating them. I find that the XBLA tides me over between matches of PD0 and I still have to beat Quake4.

Honestly, if you've beaten every game out there (killed it... as in 1000/1000 achievements) then you need to get a fulltime job or something.

very good point.

every console goes through a slow period in the beginning. the ps3 and revolution will too, we just dont know by how much. other then DoA4, all the games i play are launch games and i love them just as much. i know different people can hold interest in games for different periods but the games will come. especially with the complexity of the next gen systems, i much rather the developer delay and work on their games as much as they want then to release more rushed games. if we had GR3, oblivion, and a few other games right now, there would be even more people bitching to how these games are unfinished or not next gen enough. of all the next gen systems, the 360 has the most games in development that we know of, so if that isnt some kind of comfort then i dont what is. i see all the points but in all honesty its nothing new with a new system, it always happens.

I guess for me it doesn't really matter. Have a wife and young child, so my playing time is limited to one long evening a week, usually on the weekend. Games are spread over a much longer period of time, say, than a gamer with limitless free time. I agree with Deftech that April looks like a money month with many quality games to tide us over til the next wave. I imagine the 360's sophmore year will see an abundance of titles to dazzle us with, and that most of us did expect that this year, titles would be sparce. If you find that you have completed all available titles and no new ones to get, perhaps you should go outside, get some exercise and refresh yourself so that you'll be in prime physical condition for that the next game that you'll play 5 days straight, without rest or food and wearing a diaper, will find you no worse for the wear. Sorry for the long sentence.

I am not saying I have beaten every game, nor do I want to. I'm not going to piss away the little time I have on playing some dumbass game. I need something with replay value, but not just one, I need two. I can't replay the same game everytime I fire up the 360. I would like to be able to switch it up. But there is nothing of interest out there. Don't think this is me being too picky, you must admit, many of these game suck. Might as well relaease a 360 version of Bloodwake (God I hope nobody claims that was a good game).

The arcade games are great and keep you playing for hours!!! Marble blast and Geometry Wars are the best ones out right now i think.

I'd rather see a few quality titles than a bucket load of utter crap (with equally few gems) like the last-gen consoles currently get. The numbers might be slim but the amount of games actually worth playing are a match, if not in favor of the 360.

What was coming for xbox1 again? All I can think of is Black and perhaps Driver Parallel lines (if it doesnt blow), and thats for the rest of its life, then I'm done with xbox1.

For PS2? Mmm.. blank? Sony blew out its big name titles for last holiday season in anticipation of the 360, and both games worth getting are better on the xbox1.

Unless of course you count the re-release of ICO and the fantasticly delayed european release of Shadow of the Slowdown as something new (rush the game to market for NTSC then take months to localize for europe). Funny how Sony gets away with delaying their biggest titles and looks like a hero.

Thanks for the list.

I just re-read minmaos comment again and it seems he was under the impression that there were only 20 games coming out all year because of a preorder list ph34r.gif

wow... out of that list of 86 games, I would maybe by 4 tops. And thats if you count the computer titles I would rather get for computer thanks to the oh so many mods.


But hey, Halo 3 is all I really need to get an xbox 360... so it balances out.

Its funny to see how different we all are when it comes to games and what we like. Halo 3 isnt even on my radar, I dont even plan on buying it when it hits. Yet you and others agree that its all you need to justify a 360 purchase. Keeps things interesting indeed, never a lack of conversation! beerchug.gif

From the list above, I'll be getting the following...

Gears of War
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion:
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter:
Prey
Lost Odyssey:
Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball 2
Lost Planet
Jade Empire 2 (Rumored)
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Double Agent
Tomb Raider: Legend
Too Human
Chromehounds
Far Cry Instincts Predator
Test Drive Unlimited
TimeShift
Alan Wake
Brothers in Arms 3
Castle Wolfenstein
Unreal Tournament 2007
Moto GP 2006
Soulcalibur [next-gen sequel]
Alone in the Dark
WarDevil
