Here’s my situation – I’m fresh out of college and recently picked out an apartment, which I’ll be moving into in a few weeks. One of the incentives was our choice of a Wii or an XBox 360, and I opted for the 360 because it seems to have more games.
However, I’m no more than a casual gamer, and I’m a little lost as to which games I should get for it. The only console I’ve ever owned was an N64 I got for Christmas when I was 10, and since then it’s been mostly computer games.
I don’t plan on making this a big hobby, but since I’m getting the console for free I figure it would be nice to have a few games to kick back with sometimes after work. I’d like to start out with maybe 3 or 4 and slowly add more as time goes on.
Here’s some of what I’ve liked and not liked as much in the past:
-Sports games, namely hockey, baseball, college football, and golf.
-Racing games, both of the strictly racing variety and also games like Burnout.
-The music games aren’t bad, especially with other people, but I don’t really want to spend $200+ to get a decent setup of my own.
-The Battlefield 1942 series for PC was a favorite of mine, so I don’t think I’d mind having a war game or two. I also have a warplane game for N64 that I liked playing.
-There’s nothing really wrong with FPS games, but with a few exceptions (like BF42), they don’t do much for me.
-Most of the computer games I’ve played in recent years have been of the strategy/simulation variety, e.g. Flight Simulator, the Sims, SimCity, C&C Red Alert 2, and so on. I guess I like games that make me think.
Any recommendations based on the above (particularly which series of sports games are considered better than others) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
