I just won a Best Buy gift card from my senior all night party on saturday and I was wondering which games I should get?
I don't mind getting new games or older games, its a $100 gift card so I could get anything.

I currently have all the must haves as of late:
Rock Band, Halo, CoD, GoW, GHIII, Orange Box, etc

I'm looking into getting Fight Night Round 3 and GRID because I played both of their demos and was interested.

Any opinions would be great, thanks. :)

well i was up for giving my full attention to helping you out, but i have no interest in either of the titles suggested! If I had to pick, i'd take fight night.. Didn't I read something on this site about Grid being glitchy, or "not 100% finished" or something? I could be wrong.. Anyways, if you had other things you were looking at, i'd let you know.

If you like zombies: Dead Rising. You won't regret it.

Yea GRID is glitchy, but they're supposed to bringing out a patch for it. But anyway I would suggest maybe Bully, Marvel Ultimate Alliance, Lego Indiana Jones, COD2, Burnout Paradise. Just to name a few.

Well for cheap and older games I'd recommend Viva Pinata and Saints Row both of which are $19.99 which would leave you enough to get a new game and both are excellent picks especially at those prices. It might helped if you told us what you liked but it looks like you enjoy mostly everything.

Prey is a great FPS which i highly recommend and Dead Rising is also a fun game to play ( if you like lots of zombies).

Fight Night was a brilliant game I loved it and it was a very easy 1000. You could get 1000 in one day if you put time into it but I still played it for ages after I got the 1000 on it. I haven't played Grid yet so I don't know what it is like. 2 good games to get if you don't already have them is Crackdown and Oblivion I am sure you could pick both of them up very cheap.

Lego Indiana Jones and Lost Odyssey, you'd have to add in about $10 for tax but worth it.

Well I would suggest Blue Dragon if you like RPGs or games that take a while to get all the achievements. It only costs $30, but you should get the guide if you did buy this because you could miss some achievements without it.

GTAIV or DARK SECTOR<Thumbs up.

I would reccomend either GTA4 or Ninja Gaiden 2. They're both really good games, but if you go for achievements, I doubt you will get 1000 in either of those any time soon.

A really good game is Battlefield:Bad Company. Burnout Paradise is pretty good too but you have to try Dead Rising. One of the best zombie games in my opinion.

True that brother.

I was thinking about getting Dead Rising for awhile now and I was thinking if FN: Round 3 was an easy 1000 then I would just rent it.

I do own GTV IV, Crackdown, Elder Scrolls, etc
I already own Marvel: UA for the Wii so rental if anything (probably an easy 1250 too)

I'll probably just head to the local Best Buy and see what is in stock then go from there.

I'll probably spend 30 minutes looking at all my options lol.

good call. Marvel: UA won't be exactly an easy 1250..not saying its hard, but its way more than just a sitdown. Check the achievements for it & you'll know what i mean.

Heck no it's not easy, I'm currently playing through it. It's not hard, but surely not easy. The bosses at the end of the levels are the hardest, espicially that big dragon.

i think i only need 5 more achievements & then i got em all for the game.. Its just alot of time, collections, & playthrough. Well worth it however!

dead rising is definattely a game just to have fun with single player but there is the whole call of duty franchise which is a great online multiplayer game along with some good single player campains.

Definitely worth the $20 I spent on it. I actually got both Marvel Ultimate Alliance and Forza Motorsport for $20 together. But yea Marvel Ultimate Alliance is an excellent game.

Out of that list, go with Bioshock. But my vote is still for Ninja Gaiden 2;).

Crackdown and BioShock are 2 of my favorite games on the 360. Condemned 2 is also a great. With your 100 buck gift card i'd go with BioShock should be about 40 or 50 bucks and Crackdown for maybe 30 bucks. Leaving you with about 20 bucks to pick of Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 and look at girls titties...i mean to get the quick achievements...i mean to look at the girls titties :p

Army of Two is fun, so is Bully.

I would get one of them or maybe Ninja Gaiden 2.

GRID is excellent, one of the best racers i've played to date.
