    Project Gotham Racing 2 - a great reason to have XBOX Live

    If you're into first person shooters, Rainbow Six 3 is the best of the bunch for XBL IMHO. The other FPS that's real popular right now is Counter-Strike. I'm not really digging Counter-Strike, but alot of people play it, so keep it in mind. SOF 2 should be avoided like the plague.[​IMG] Wolfenstein WAS a great game but most migrated to other games AND the game has been "hacked". Unreal Championship is a good mindless frag-fest, but I don't know how many folks still play. Ghost Recon and GR:IT are good tactical FPS'.
    I'm NOT a sports guy and I really don't like golf but I got Links and this game is really fun.
    MechAssault's another game alot of people around here had fun with. Crimson Skies is another game most people around here like, but I don't.
    The best piece of advice I can give you though, has nothing to do with a game. It's this: with Xbox Live it's all about the friend's list. Places like this and "other" forums are a good place to start meeting people with XBL and whenever you have a good session with a cool person, send them a friend invite. 'Cause there are WAAAAAY too many asshats out there and if you don't have a "core" group of people to play with, you'll most likely be disappointed.

    I can't recomend Crimson Skies highly enough. It is so simple that you can be killing people online in a few minutes. And it is incredably fun and addictive. I have had trouble putting it down.

    Well, we can add Burnout Revenge as a great online PS2 game.

    X-Men Legends II is said to have online co-op which sounds like it will kick ass. Plus you get to fight Apocalypse, what's not to like? [​IMG]

    Another vote for Burnout Revenge (xbox). Put the idiots on mute, listen to your custom soundtrack that you ripped, and face human opponents while you race. It's not perfect by any means as it's too easy to get taken down, but it's still damn fun. You can even compete online in crash mode.

    I'm still looking for some Playstation 2 X-men out there.
    I know the game is fairly new, but I haven't been able to find anybody yet
