Since I've decided not to get a HDTV just yet, I've got my 360 plugged into one of my 22" PC monitors via the HDMI port - it's actually worked out really well, since I have a pretty shocking attention span and it allows me to check things on the computer whilst a game is loading or whatever.

However! I've got PES 2008 and have taken this to new levels. I play on an easy difficulty, watch a film on the one screen, and then kick the ball about on an easy difficulty on the other :)

I'm just wondering if there are any other games that you can play like this? Not watch the screen a lot but still enjoy playing, and I guess any achievements you could pick up along the way would be a bonus! I know there's a lot of PC games like this, but I'd rather 360 stuff if possible.

Thanks!

Madden 08 and NCAA 08 because you can sim for most of the achievements on those.

Nice one cheers; which of those two would you recommend? I'm from the UK and as a result I'm not massively into American Football. Have enjoyed a couple of the Madden games in the past though!

I got a 32" tv from argos for 300 and i'm playing the 360 through component (better than vga imo) and it looks absolutely mint.

Cheers, but in all honesty I'm happy with my setup at the moment, at least until I'm finished with my PS2!

I've usually found racing games you can zone out of for a bit. There have been some races in PGR where I'll be toward the end of a 4-5 minute race and hardly remember much about the race. You just kind of begin to go through the motions and can play a very enjoyable game and kind of zone out for a little bit.

normally MLB 2K7...i have such a feel for the pitching i can no look pitch a 1 hit, 2 hit game. the hitting, not as much but the baserunning yeah. also basketball lol. some shooters i can do that, but depends on how intense the AI is.

Cabela's hunting games, most things there are no time limits, you can just wander around and shoot stuff.

I was gonna say the same thing, racing games you can definitely zone out of , also you can have a race, do something on your computer then have another race.
