25 dollars to gamestop

Howdy all, I have a twenty five dollar giftcard to game stop that I'm intending to spend on a variety of cheap and or used XBOX360 games.

I find myself in need of recommendations.

I'm thinking about that Sega Mega Collection thing, but otherwise I'm totally open to the random, the wacky, and anything that maybe flew under the radar.


I love sim style games. Tropico 3 is a game I'm buying in February. I dislike Shooters. I love random humor and action games, as well as games with a great plot.

Long Story Short: The Zanier the Better.

So what's the cheapest most under rated 360 game you can think of, that I could buy Penny Arcade? Recommend On!

    Zany, huh? The only games I have that I'd think of as "zany" would be Overlord or Dead Rising. Both are quite excellent, and neither are shooters.

    Think think think.

    $25...random and zany.

    Maybe your best bet is to get a $20 card for xbox live arcade. You can get access to Monkey Island from there and a plethora of other zany games.

    Also, I have the sega mega collection, it's alright but does have some throw away titles.

    It does, however, have Shining Force 1 and 2 if you're into that.

    Likened to The Sims, Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon, the game tasks the player with turning a neglected plot of land into a beautiful garden. As with many sandbox games, the game is open-ended, with no strict winning or losing requirements. Instead, players are guided only generally towards the objectives of increasing their garden's value and attracting piñata residents. Players are free to determine their own sub-goals and work towards them.

    Yes, but get the second one (Trouble in Paradise, not the stupid Party game).

    This is what I was going to suggest as well. It doesn't get much zanier than Splosion Man.

    if you can find it, this game should be not only cheap, but loads of awesome cheesy fun.

    Earth Defense Force 2017

    Also Psychonauts, maybe?

    But second Dead Rising. Perfect blend of horror and wtf mega man.

    Seconding a XBLA card. Splosion Man and Castle Crashers are the definition of zany.

    Dead Rising, Viva Pinata, Psychonauts (either a used oXbox disc or downloadable with a XBLA point card) and Earth Defense Force 2017 (except it's a shooter) are four other excellent suggestions.

    If you're not limited to 360 games look out for Phantom Dust. It's both zany and under the radar.`

    Do you hate all shooters, or just FPS, because Razes Hell is funny, under rated, and zany. It's a 3rd person shooter. (xbox original you can dl on Live.)
