Any other XBOX 360 Live addicts here?
I'm totally addicted.

I went from Call of Duty 2
to Call of Duty 3
and I am now doing Gears of War and Rainbow 6 Vegas


I've done other games on the 360 that I don't play live (well)
like Burnout Revenge and Hitman.

Anyone have any game recommendations?

1. I can quit anytime I want
We got an Xbox for Christmas. I play Project Gotham racing a lot, even though I hate driving in real life. Today we bought Lego Star Wars and a World War II flying game Blazing Angels. Get back to me in a couple weeks and I'll tell you how fun they are

7. I'll let you know about Blazing Angels in a few days
I tried it last night and couldn't get past the training mission. It takes a while to get used to "flying" since the only available view is behind the plane. I prefer the cockpit view in my PC's Combat Flight Sim. However, the graphics look really good and I'm looking forward to fighting World War II from the comfort of my living room.

I got absolutely smoked when I tried PGR online. However, it is fun to race against the AI, especially driving across the Brooklyn Bridge at 180 mph and customizing the soundtrack so it plays Born to Run.

3. Gears' Rocks!
If you can kill Gen Raam on insane, I'll kiss your feet. I have had mixed success online...seem to be running into disciplined gangs of 12 yr olds who are kicking my ass in deathmatches.

8. GOW on Xbox Live is awesome
However, I too am constantly outmaneuvered by kids half my age.

The solution? I play the 2 player campaign mode with my best friend online, and the deathmatch one-on-one vs each other.

Someone should start a "I don't play this game every waking hour so nor do I take reflex enhancing superdrugs so please allow me to play this game at a level most humans would find entertaining" league.

It's the same for strategy games online too. Don't mess with Korean kids at Starcraft, you may need therapy afterwards.
