Xbox was created by Ali (Nutmeg)

So I just inherited an Xbox 360 and I have no grasp or concept of whats out there and available. I love RPG's, real time strategy and first person shooters... Can anyone recommend any games?

well, i can't suggest any good RPG's for Xbox 360, and i don't know which games are available to you there in Canada but i can tell you for:
PS 1&2 : The Kingdom Hearts series, Tales of the Abyss (by Namco) and Tales of Legendia (by Namco), Grandia II
Wii or Gamecube: Tales of Symphonia and Skies of Arcadia are good. I heard there is a second Tales of Symphonia out, i have yet to play it but if it's anything else like the other Tales games it should be awesome!

I'm a playstation and Nintendo fan myself and if you have any of those systems i would suggest playing those if you haven't already!  ;D

If you like RPG's

Dragon Age Origins (although better on the PC)
Mass Effect 1 (2 is coming out in a few months but 1 was arguably the best game of the year when it came out).
If you like sci-fi open ended worlds - fallout 3
More recently - Borderlands (but better as a multi-player)

Shooters - Call of Duty Modern Warfare, nuff said.

Blue Dragon.

The only reason the game did poorly is because they released a JRPG on a system originally geared for American shooter meat-heads (yeah, you all heard me, want to fight about it?)

"Ok we can attack... but if we miss, we'll hit the villagers."
"I'm willing to take that chance!"

Things I am no longer allowed to do in an RPG :
31. The backup trap handler is not whoever has the most HP at the time.
73. Not allowed to name my cudgel Ceremonial Whoopass Stick.
74. My thief's battle cry is not "Run And Live"

and of course there is Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, Fable 1 & 2, and of course Halo 3....and I believe there was a thread somewhere that we listed a bunch of our gamertags...

Yes. I believe I do.

Xbox does indeed lack the generic spikeyhair, no talking, world needs saving, games the PS does, but there are a slew of other good games for it.

If you want like 200 hours of game time get Oblivion for X Box. Also Fallout 3 is awesome but I wouldn't play it at the same time as Oblivion, because they use the same engine and you might get a little bored of it. Both also have multiple expansions.

The 360 has a ton of everything you're looking for actually.  While I support the PS3 like it's my job (oh wait...) I can definitely point you in the right direction for games for the 360.

Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey play like traditional turn based RPGs and offer a ton of game time, so if you've got a lot of time to burn, definitely look into these two.  Oblivion and Fall Out 3 are definitely great games that take place from a first person view and also has RPG elements.  I'm a huge fan of Fall Out 3 actually so if you like FPS games and RPGs definitely look into getting it.  Since you're looking into RPGs and shooters, also take a look at Mass Effect.  It combines RPG elements with a third person shooter.  Dragon Age: Origins plays a lot like Baldur's Gate and is a a lot of fun to play and has a ton of replay ability.  Also keep in mind that Final Fantasy XIII is coming out in a few months, so you have that to look forward to.

As for shooters, the most obvious answer is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 1 & 2.  Both have amazing single player campaigns and fantastic online multiplayer.  Another game that I want everyone to play is Bioshock.  It's my hands down favorite first person shooter by a long shot and the second one is coming out in under a month.  There's also Halo 3, Halo: ODST, Gear of War and Gears of War 2 out which are all reasonably cheap now and are still amazing games.

As for real time strategy, there really isn't a lot.  The only ones that I can really think of are Halo Wars, Command and Conquer: Red Alert and Command and Conquer: Tiberium Wars.  I'm not much of an RTS player, so I don't know how they are.

I hope this helps you out.

Any of the Lego adventures games are a lot of fun (Batman, Indiana Jones and the Star wars series). For first person shooters I am a big fan of Left for Dead 1 or 2, its about killing zombies.

ahaha oh wow thanks guys/ gals!

Ok so far I have Mass Effect 1, Assassins Creed 1 & 2, Red Faction and Gears of War lol I think that should fill my boots. I've already played Fallout 1-3 on my computer so I felt little need for them on the system.

I'm just worried Im going to purchase a mainly online game by accident thats all.

Do be careful about purchasing any RTS games for consoles... The lack of mouse/keyboard control seeeriously changes how the games handle, namely not being able to move your view around as fast.

Oh yeah! also for shooter (I am a big fan of 1st person shooters myself!) I'd recommend looking out for Battlefeild: Bad Company 2, or any of the other Battlefeild games as well, I admire Battlefeilds games for their frostbite engine, I mean you can freggin take whole buildings crumbling down!! what more do you want?! =D

Well hey, if you have xbox you can get the demo right now, it's pretty nice I will say, but I seem to be sucking pretty badly... but I think it's because I'm really use to modern warfare 2 controls, but I'll get there =)

There are many first-person shooter games that are available for Xbox 360. Games like Destiny 2, Call of duty and more. It depends on which one would you like to play. I have recently started playing this game Destiny 2 and it's so much fun, it takes on the epic journey of the solar system. I play this game with my friends in multiplayer mode and also challenge them. I bought this game at an amazing price from this useful site . You should definitely try this game at least once. It's very interesting.
