Hello all

First of all i must say this is a very nice site. i have been a pc gamer for many years and have never really looked into any of the console's. but my wife bought me a xbox a few day's ago and i was wondering what some of the top title's are for this system?i like just about every style of game there is except puzzle and RTS.
**note**i have halo for pc and it rock's**i plan on getting live but i would like to try some of the offline games first just to get a feel for the system.as of now i dont have any game's for it just the system. what are some good game's to check out.

Welcome to XBA, TRINITY-6!

To get an idea of what games are hot, you can check out the 'Charts' list at the top of your browser window. It would also help anybody reading this to know the types of games you like to play the most so they can point you in the right direction.

Right now a lotta the Addicts seem to be drooling over Rainbow 6: 3, but that's mostly 'cuz of the Live! play.

:cheers:

From one PC Gamer to another going Xbox.

FPS was the most difficult for me to adjust to.


Burnout 2 and Project Gotham Racing 2 are must haves, IMHO

Rogue Ops isnt that bad if you want a Tomb Raider type game.

Crimson Skies is pretty phat.

Go to Blockbuster or whereever you rent games and go buck wild and buy what you want after you rent. :)

Hey if you liked Tomb Raider definately check out Indiana Jones and the Emperors Tomb. This game is great and it definately reminded me of Tomb Raider. Its challenging too!

Another series that isnt exactly like that but kind of similiar is the Buffy the Vampire Slayer games.

If you like guantlet style games with updated everything and more features then check out the Hunter:The Reckoning Series, Baldur Gate, and Dungeons and Dragons. Those are great games to play with a friend.

Everything else I was gonna say has pretty much been mentioned.

WrathfulPoppa has basically summed up some of the best games to get on Xbox. Otherwise, there really isn't anything to add. As said before, check the "Charts" section of XBA for the top games.

By joining XBA and actively participating at the site you willl lose the status of Xbox noob in no time.
