Hey guys, new to digital press forums (although had been using the online rarity guide for quite some time!) and am a 6 1/2 year member of GameFAQs, so you might know me from there.

Anyway, I'm interested in seeking out those who are collecting Xbox 360 games (particularly looking for completists). I've only found a couple people on GameFAQs, but I'm guessing I'd find a couple more here for sure!

It be nice to get a community of us together to help find good deals on new releases (or past ones to fill missing holes), or just joke about all the crappy games we (are forced to) have. As you probably know, on even a nice budget, it can be tough to afford all the releases. I'll post a checklist here to get this topic started...

I'll be at 31 at the end of the week, I definitely have some holes to fill--but I'm staying true to the new releases and waiting on my old holes as they become more affordable. I pre-oredered the "junk" releases that are coming out all next week (including Open Season). Hehe, they may end up to all be good, but I'm guessing we got a couple stinkers coming up.

btw, I have found 1 person that does have all 56 games right now, but no one who has all 60 releases. Don't know how big a concern that is for the completist collector out there (getting all the versions)?

Do you care about the Call of Duty 2 Game of the Year variant? The SKU is the same but the cover is different and it's bundled with the multiplayer/Live interface updates as well as an extra DVD with some bonus materials.

Neo Rasa
09-18-2006, 02:20 AM
Chromehounds
Condemned: Criminal Origins
Dead or Alive 4
Dead Rising
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Limited Collector's Edition
Far Cry Instincts: Predator
Hitman: Blood Money
Kameo: Elements of Power
Perfect Dark Zero Limited Collector's Edition
Prey Limited Collector's Edition
Quake IV

These are the games I think everyone should have (unless you have a good PC, then Quake IV and Oblivion aren't really worth it). I own more Live Arcade games for the system than I do physically released ones.

ah, the COD2 GOTY, totally forgot about that, will update the list, now at 61 if you include the variants...

The big deal to me is just having each game, regardless of variants. But I imagine some people on here are variant hounds too and try to get all those.

I'm up to 33 of the titles, none of the variants and basically none of the sports titles. I'll wait on those and pick them up cheap. I really need to start playing more of them.

Same here mostly, the only exceptions I make to that are my beloved Megami Tensei and Dragon Slayer franchises. Gotta catch'em all. :D

I don't know why anyone would want a complete 360 collection at this time though. You couldn't pay me to own stuff like Samurai Warriors 2, College Hoops (hasn't been good since the PS2 was new), American Wasteland, etc.

Daria
09-18-2006, 12:57 PM
Yeah... seems sort of a waste to pay $40 - $60 for launch 360 games at this point when you know a lot of those ports will will drop drastically once the libray starts to beef it's self up.

Guess it's all about the bragging rights.

Actually I shop the bargins, the last 360 game I paid more then 40 bucks for was Enchanted Arms, other then that I get almost all mine for less then 30 bucks.

What about arcade titles?

Im missing like 5

Billards
All The Card Games
Robotron

DOAsaturn
09-18-2006, 05:30 PM
Yeah, collecting arcade titles is another deal...what worries me about that collection is if HD space gets too small. I suppose one could purchase another HD for more space and swap HD's when you want to play other games. I don't know if this is a problem yet for those who have all of them. I have 7-8, I also have the XBLA game for my collection too, so I guess I'm over 10 (haven't popped in that disc yet...)

Some older games you can nab real cheap already. I still need games like NBA 2K6 and FIFA RTWC, I can prob get those for $5 at most on ebay, especailly once the 07's come out.

Hehe, I actually have all three of the games you mentioned. College Hoops I've always been a big fan of, and 2K6 was fun (esp. online) but the cheap AI in tougher difficulties ruined it. THAW was alright to blow through, that series has gotten old. And I'm looking forward to Samurai Warriors 2 coming in the mail this week ;-) haha, should be fun...I hope...wondering if that or Open Season will be the stinker this week...hoping Cabela's game is going to be a fun surprise.

When they come out with the larger HD they said they will figure out a way to transfer the data.

I only have 6gb left, however i have to delete some videos and demos.

DOAsaturn
09-18-2006, 05:46 PM

Bankshot Billiards 2

Total XBLA Games: 29 (By the end of next week: 32)

I guess I have 11 after adding it all up...

09-18-2006, 05:48 PM

09-18-2006, 05:50 PM
I thought about going for a completeist 360 collection when I first got mine a few months ago, but then I realized that the system still has at least another 4 years to go.

And since I'm more of a gamer than a collector, I just can't see myself buying hundreds of games I will never play. Though maybe in 10 or 15 years I might go after a complete collection, as most of the games will be dirt cheap by then, if my 360 is still functioning.

DOAsaturn
09-18-2006, 05:56 PM

TotemBall

At least those are the last announced dates I saw. TotemBall tomorrow, Lumines the next day, and Robo Blitz a week from today...

Missed this earlier sorry, this is incorrect. Any copies coming out now have the Game of the Year top banner and "sticker" on the insert itself. I'd definitely consider it a valid variant to keep in mind if you're into that sort of thing. The disk face is different as well.


Mmm, the Live Arcade:

Chromehounds
Condemned: Criminal Origins
Dead or Alive 4
Dead Rising
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Limited Collector's Edition
Far Cry Instincts: Predator
Frogger
Galaga

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved

Hitman: Blood Money
Joust
Kameo: Elements of Power

Prey Limited Collector's Edition
Quake IV
ROBOTRON: 2084
Rockstar Games Presents: Table Tennis
Scramble
Smash TV
Street Fighter II' Hyper Fighting
Texas Hold 'Em

Zuma Deluxe

It's amazing how much the Live Arcade has made me a devotee of the system.

I liked it too but never got it on 360. I just hate that Activision ported the EXACT game from the original XBox with updates of any kind, graphical or otherwise, and still charged $59.99 for it. "Premium prices for premium games" my ass. :p

$19.99 seems about right.

DOAsaturn
09-19-2006, 03:15 PM
Yeah GUN is also one of my holes. I bought it for PS2 before the 360 launch. It was a lot of fun, but I sold it soon after beating it. I might get it for $19, but I'll probably wait til it drops a bit further.

Speaking of ports, I didn't realize all 4 games that were due to ship today (include Cabela's Alaskan Adventure, The Godfather, Samurai Warriors II, and Open Season) are also current gen games (I knew Godfather was). I hope these are worthy 360 games...

I can tell you right now that Samurai Warriors II is trash. Godfather doesn't look like it's worthy of the hardware it's on. The back of the box has the same imagery as the previous releases. That is to say, there's a concept render from like two years ago on the back of the box with the in-game shots off to the side and much smaller. This does not bode well. I haven't played a Cabela game since the very first Deer Hunter on the PC so I don't know what's up with that.

DOAsaturn
09-19-2006, 03:35 PM
Yeah, that was my thinking on Godfather. It looks like it could be mindless fun, but the game looks like it belongs on a PS2 right next to Vice City.

As for Samurai Warriors II, I'm getting the sense that that could be the worst game next to Bomberman. I saw some screens of that and it looks BAD. I don't know if the screens I saw were PS2 or 360 but the article was about the 360 game.

I actually think Cabela's might end up being the best of the lot this week...

DOAsaturn
09-19-2006, 07:14 PM
Add Dig Dug to the XBLA arcade list, I hear it is that XBLA surprise we've been holding out for this week...

I'm anxious to hear some of your reactions to tomorrow's new releases. I probably won't be getting my copies til end of week or next, I ordered them with ground shipping...

I have considered collecting for 360, But there aren't any titles in the $5 range yet, So i'm not buying any more until then. Most of the 360 games i play are rentals. I only own two 360 games - Full auto and kameo.

Hell 4 bucks a pop....why not?

The only games I own for the 360 are

PREY collectors and Dead Rising...which I haven't picked up in a week due too the way the game saves :angry:

The next one I see as a MUST have would be Gears of War though.
