    So, what old games are must play games for this summer? What new great titles are coming out?

    I personally plan on playing through Fallout 3 (finally, have had NO time at school). After that I will probably head out to gamestop and pick up whatever cheap RPGs there are for 360.

    Hopefully I will finally get Street Fighter as well.

    Oh, and Halo is a given for me.

    What about you guys?

    If you haven't played Blue Dragon or Lost Odyssey, they're both phenomenal jRPGs for 360 and are created by the original minds of Final Fantasy. By now they should be pretty bargain bid priced as well.

    I can attest to Lost Odyssey being a great game, think Mor said in the originally that it could easily have been called FF:Lost Odyssey.

    Lost Odyssey is THE most underrated game I have ever seen. It was released at a time that XBOX 360 =/= JRPGs. If it had a Final Fantasy tag on it, it would be a different story.

    A 1000 Years of Dreams are some of the most beautiful stories, and it adds so much depth to the game. It is so unique and such a brilliant addition to a RPG.

    If you like the old Final Fantasy games, I HIGHLY recommend it.

    I'll be playing from my current backlog (too many games to name sadly, but including Valkyrie Chronicles), in addition to NCAA 10 (PS3) whenever it comes out.

    I might pick up one or more of these games:
    Prototype
    Infamous (only on PS3!?! really?)
    Fuel
    Madden NFL 10
    Sacred 2 (for the co-op, but probably not a game I get right away)
    Cross Edge
    Dirt 2

    and NOTHING upcoming on the wii (for the summer) interests me yet (that I know of).
    I still have to play and beat the 5-6 games I have for it though, including Zelda: TP.

    I'll be playing Fable 2, playing through Fallout 3 again and spending some time on MLB the Show. Of course playing some Rock Band is a given from time to time. I can't think of anything new I'll pick up probably until the fall. At some point I'm going to see what Gears of War is all about.

    While not ground breaking, Grears does what it does VERY well. Gears 2 might be the best co-op story mode EVER.

    Fun game, should definitely try it out. Halo is still the best online shooter IMO. Gears CO-OP though is incredible.

    Just swapped some old games at Gamestop for Fallout 3 and Gears of War. This should keep me happy for a while.

    play Gears1 first.... Trust me. The story is weak in part one, but it's worth the experience prior to going into 2 imo

    Good call. I think 2 is worth playing as well. I didn't decide to buy it though, GOW1 is enough for me.

    I felt like Gears2 was probably the most anti-climactic game I've ever played. To each his own. ;)

    Anyone who is asking for game suggestions but hasn't played the Orange Box yet, needs to have their heads examined IMO. :yes:

    Half Life 2, it's expansions + Team Fortress 2 + Portal = Win

    I am trying to also get through Final Fantasy 7. I kinda feel that I should play this game as a JRPG fan, but it a bit painful to play with the 32 bit graphics and animations. I wish I played it back in the day, but I had an N64 not a Playstation.

    i played through it again last summer. I still think it holds up well. But that could be the nostalgia talking.

    I think it holds up pretty well considering, but I also think that's (how it looks now) one reason they should remake it for the PS3.

    i think the special edition of FF13 on the 360 should come with an FF7 remake. I only say 360 so I can get it for free.

    after these last few years of gaming on the PS3 and 360... I think it's safe to say it could look significantly better than that lol

    off topic... Doesn't that flying thing at the last minute of the video have a striking resemblance to Grand Staff in Lost Odyssey?

    Edit - forgot to post the video (it's from Final Fantasy 13)
