Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So. I just got a 360. I got Bioshock, obviously. And Gears. Now I'm realizing that I don't have another $800 on me right this moment, which means I need to find some games that don't break the bank.
My budget successes so far are Crackdown and Call of Duty 2. I also got Zuma for $5 during the XBLA sale last weekend. Crackdown is simply the funnest, and the cheat pack has made it my favorite sandbox ever. Call of Duty 2 suffered from being a game that I had to play on Veteran, and also some really odd design decisions. But it was $20, and when it was good it was good.
So, what other titles are old, cheap, and good? XBLA or retail, so long as it doesn't go over $20-$30.
