wrong. some of the better games on the xbox you normally dont see aviable to PC gamers are third person platformers with some FPS built into it. Racing games as well. Don't get me wrong I am a PC gamer, but I am not a PC elitist.

games like bayonetta, enslaved:OTTW, and a handful of other titles can only be found on console, unless there is an emulator out there for xbox games. some other fun games are available on xbox arcade.

just buy used games and don't pay for full retail to benefit off a console.

I never said anything about exclusives, I simply stated my opinion of the BEST games to get for 360. Sure there are sports games, racing games, RPGs etc etc but that's aside from what I think are the best games for the 360.

Or mod it since the only decent thing about a 360 is lack of drm.

Here is why you shouldn't play fps' on the console if you own a pc though :

Well, I work at BestBuy and I get 50% of used games, which are already dirty cheap.

I think for $129, I'm going to go for it. I can always take it back, or sell it..

I mostly want it so I can chill on my sofa in my room, and play some elaxing games.. What are some good games, aside from any FPS where you really need to aim?
What the F!!!!!

you can get an Xbox 360 4GB for $129? that is about £80 D:

One console only game I've been wanting to play is Fat Princess, although I think that is a PS3 exclusive.

Racing games are pretty good on consoles. So you could get forza.

So are games that you can play splitscreen multi with friends (cod/halo).
