I have just learned that we are getting an Xbox 360 for Christmas! Yay!! It's supposed to be for both me and my husband, but I'm sure he will play it more as I am quite retarded at gaming (plus I have a Wii which they'll need a crowbar to pry me away from).
I think we are getting the Pro Value Bundle with Forza 2 and Marvel Alliance, so at least there will be some games to try out, but I want to get my husband something totally cool and fun to play.
I was thinking GHIII or Rock Band, but he really likes the looks of the new guitar that is coming out at the end of January (the one with control buttons at the base of the neck, for rocking out real hard). So, I might want to wait on that one. Also he is still playing GHI and II on the PS2 so that might tide him over for a few weeks.
His favorite games are Madden and NHL, but he already has the '08 versions for PS2, so should I get one for the 360 too or just wait til the '09s come out? Are the 360 versions cool enough to own on both systems?
He also likes FPS games though we both totaly suck at them - we both die within the first 15 minutes of RE4 on the Wii. Still, the ones for 360 look amazing! I am especially intrigued by BioShock and The Orange Box (Half Life 2). He does like war games but I H-A-T-E those so he's on his own for Call of Duty or anything like that. I am kinda thinking an FPS might be the best gift though, cuz at least that would be something new that he doesn't already play all day on the PS2.
One more note: we DO NOT have highspeed internet at home, so online gaming is not possible on a regular basis. He travels a lot for work so he can go online in hotels, but it's not something he can do regularly so we need something that is really fun offline.
Thanks in advance for your help!!
