QUESTION: I want to get a cheap game (under $15) to play on my roommates xbox. Problem is I'm not that great at games. I don't like games that are just shooting or just driving. I don't care if it's sort of a kids game. I like fun adventure games. Oh and I can't handle when there are two different controls for looking and moving. Any suggestions on what to buy or look for?

  1. Try Limbo. If that game isn't for you, you're shit out of luck because of your inability to use the two joysticks. buy a hoolahoop?

  2. I got a kick out of the Fable games. Adventure and super easy combat. I'd grab a used copy from the Beat Goes On.

  5. I think you'd be better off with a 2D system like a gameboy. You could probably get one for around 15 bucks, and then you could play mario, zelda, pokemon, ect. which are all fun adventure games. Otherwise I would suggest Rayman Origins for Xbox (fun colourful platformer).

    1. Game-boys, N64's and the good games for them are actually expensive as hell :/

    2. I just checked kijiji and you can get a gameboy advance for $15, it really depends on where you look. I recommend going to microplay (waterloo), some of the pawn shops in downtown Kitchener or looking on kijiji if you want cheap games/systems on N64 or gameboy!

    prince of persia (highly recommend)

  7. xbox or xbox 360?

    go for Portal 2 if it's the 360, otherwise check out Ty the Tasmian Tiger (actually a very fun game)

  8. Borderlands 2!!!! i'm not a gamer by any stretch of the imagination, but this game is so much fun. the characters are utterly hilarious, from a redneck auto mechanic who offers you tacos and is in love with his sister, to a 13 year girl old who blows shit up and sends you on a mission to collect crumpets and a bad guy to murder. its a first person shooter, but the controls are easy to learn. one of the best parts of the game is constantly finding new gear and guns.
    it's really great as a multiplayers game, but fun for single player too.
