    That time of the year is almost upon us which means a trip to the grandparents resulting in 2 things: No PC and no Internet so anyone got any recommendations for single-player only games for the 360... ideally ones i can pick up cheap...

    not so hot on driving games or SF/MK/Tekken like button spam fighting games

    for reference some of the games i already have/played:

    Arkham Asylum
    Mass Effect [1+2]
    Oblivion [didn't like it so don't bother recommending skyrim :p]
    Lost Odyssey
    Blue Dragon
    Just Cause

    EDIT: Retail or Arcade/On-demand, either is ok [i can download them before i go]

    GTA IV? Crackdown 2?

    Do you have a laptop? Because there are some awesome, simple games available.

    Edit: 1000th post! Spent helping someone = awesome.

    Saints Row 1/2
    The Darkness
    Chronicles of Riddick?
    Crackdown
    Command & Conquer 3?

    These should all be bargain bin games by now, if you can find them.

    Played GTA4... 10 minutes later later that day i was on my way back to the store to trade it in... awful game...

    Have Crackdown, it was fun might see if any of the local places have #2

    can't get a copy of saints row 2 anywhere locally but i did enjoy it what i played of it, the first one though never appealed for some reason...

    riddick and the darkness are possibilities, didn't care for c+c3 on the PC... can't see it being any better on the 360...

    If you gave GTA4, no wait, any game 10 minutes, then it's just a shame.

    10 minutes was an exaggeration... i got as far as the first fist-fight IIRC and hated every moment of it...

    EDIT: no laptop... parents sold mine without telling me

    Well, likely budget candidates are;

    Just Cause 2 - if you liked the first then maybe you'll like the second!
    Dead Space 1 & 2.
    Infamous
    Assassins Creed 2 and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood.
    The Saboteur
    Bioshock 1 & 2

    I would say Fallout 3 and Fallout NV but you hated oblivion, so not sure if you will like these.

    All the above I have played and enjoyed immensely (Apart from Dead Space 2 which I skipped).

    noted
    played both dead spaces
    noted
    played AC2
    noted
    played the first one, not the second

    loved f3 and NV on the PC, was hopeless trying to play it with a controller... mouse/kb Cheesecake...
    i know oblivion and the bethesda fallouts are along the same lines... i just found oblivion mind numbingly dull...

    what about jrpgs? liked lost odyssey and blue dragon was ok [once you muted the annoying voice acting] anyone played Tales of Vesperia, FF13 etc.?

    Ninja Gaiden 2 - Never has slicing off peoples limbs been so awesome (trust me those multi-rocket ninjas deserve it).
    Defense Grid - Tower defense
    Shadow Complex - 2d/3d platform

    The Darkness was awesome, waiting for #2 now
    Viva Piniata (it might like like a kids game, but it is fun)
    Castlevania: Lords of Shadows
    Orcs must Die (xbla) tower defence/fps
    Mass Effect / Mass Effect 2
    TES IV: Oblivion
    Eternal Sonata
    Red Faction 2
    DeathSpank (1st was brilliant, got slightly fed up of the 2nd though)
    Borderlands

    Red Dead Redemption, cowboys, nuff said.
    Just Cause 2, the most fun you will EVER have with a grappling hook.
    Dead Space 2, freaky game with some jumpy moments, a couple of times I near shat myself.

    Vanquish - is to a video game as snacks are to meals.

    It's all about fast paced shooting and whirling. Good if you like the games that allow you to reach round the back your head to press the off button. It's longevity is measured by how much replay you'll get out of it though.

    My empirical favorite game is Ico, it's not on 360 but is one hell of a brilliant platform game.

    Stop being stupid and buy Skyrim. It's considerably better than Oblivion and is pretty much the sole reason why I've spent bugger all time talking to you on MSN or playing WoTs since its release.

    I will... at some point... when all the bugs are quashed and they've got all the DLC out of the way...

    but I'm looking for games i can pick up relatively cheaply... skyrim doesn't fall in that category [yet]...

    Sorry, I meant the 3rd one (Guerrilla).

    I'll also add Torchlight.
