Game advice/recommendations

long-time PC gamer, first-time XBOX 360 owner.

Just pretend I've just dropped in from another planet and have never once played any XBOX games ever.


OK, I was born here but the rest is true :)

I'm a BIG FPS fan on the PC but I also have two primary school-aged kids.

Bought a 250GB Kinect bundle for a ridiculous price today and was after some advice on what console-specific titles rock.

I've heard Gears of War is good but apart from that...

Thanks in advance,

Halo. Just saying.

I love Battlefield 3 although I'm rubbish at it.
I've just found the Co-op games and really getting in to that.

Thanks guys, trying to get my hands around a controller instead of a keyboard and mouse is pretty funny to watch. So my 10 year-old son tells me anyway :)

The Kinect is extremely cool too, very clever piece of hardware.

For the Kinect - Child of Eden. The ONLY game I've ever given a perfect score to in 10 years of reviewing games.

Any of the Rock Band / Guitar Hero games are GREAT fun for kids. Same with the Lego games.

Saints Row series is awesome, as is GTA IV, but definitely not for kids.

As to FPS I really enjoy COD:BOII and BF3 online, even if you have to mute everyone. Far Cry III is a lot of fun too (although I've not played that online).
