Default Need XBOX 360 game suggestions.

Well after swearing off gaming a while back and selling my 360 I have had a lot urges lately to get back in the game. I bought an XBOX 360 60GB from Futureshop today as they had them on for $269 CDN(a good price).

I repurchased COD4:MW which was always me favorite game and admit that I am having a hard time getting back into a game that it that "hardcore". Very frantic and fast paced and EXTREMELY competitive.

I also picked up Tiger PGA 10 but also want some suggestions for other laid back games that have come out in the last year that I would have missed. I pretty much hadn't touched an XBOX 360 controller for the better part of 9 months. Thanks guys.

I used to have Left 4 Dead never really liked it that much. My friends were F'ing crazy for it though.

Have there been any decent platformers?

Not really for the 360. The Dishwasher: Dead Samura is up on XBL for $10 and that's a hack and Slash style platformer, similar to old NES games like Ninja Gaiden. It's really good for what it is, but if you're looking for a disc based retail game, I can't think of any...maybe Lego Indy and Lego Batman? Might rent those and see what you think.

If you're into MA rated games that will give you a challenge, you might also check out Ninja Gaiden 2. Not so much a platformer as 3D combat though.

It was really welll done with great music, great voice acting, a nice simple story, and beautiful graphics. However, the game is really easy. You can't die because your AI partner will always save you, but the jumping sequences and puzzels are all pretty simple. It the kind of game you sit down and just play for the spectacle, not because you're looking for a challenge. The exception would be the achievements. A few of them are challenging.

I do reccomend it though. There's a solid 30 hours of play in that game.

What genre's suit you? If you haven't tried Bioshock, Mass Effect, and Dead Space, you should give those a shot.
