Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I wish it 3 was included, too. That's your proper original era of classic Tony Hawk games, then, before they lost that beautiful 10 goals in a compact level feeling. 3's got the best tunes, too. It's got the wash your ay-ussss rap and CKY. 

All together now: Dunna dun dun, dunna dunna dunna dunna, dun dun dunna dun, dun dun, dunah.

Wasn't THPS 5 supposed to be terrible? Hopefully not using the same engine.

Yes, it was released in demo form and then required an update, which for some didn't work. It was a terrible game. The one for xbox 360 is decent though

That's the boy. Still, what a gift horse though. The first two soundtracks are incredible, too, mind you. Tony Hawk transfer gapped across many a boundary in our school. Heads who'd normally not entertain anything outside a Gatecrasher compilation giving their blessing to bands like Rage Against The Machine, Papa Roach etc just from being on Tony Hawk. 

Skateboarding as a whole, as big as it got at the time, was still very much the games first the actual sport second, which is crazy.

Yeah bit disappointed it isn't 3 aswell. That was the best one I think. Got the balance just right. I spent hundreds of hours on Airport.

Doesn’t feel right to put this in the retro gaming thread, so it’s going here.

I took delivery of a modded Xbox 360 at the weekend and have been slowly downloading lots of games. I’ve got about 65 so far and as I’ve learnt from the many times I’ve built “retro” gaming setups, half the fun is on the curation.

Anyway, one of the games I randomly downloaded was the 2010 FIFA World Cup game and I’ve been having an absolute blast on it. The visual quality of the game is actually quite jarring having been spoilt with FIFA 20 in 4K HDR, but it really does a good job of capturing the atmosphere of the tournament and is a decent little kick about.

It feels quite slow and the camera is at a really high angle, but I’m having loads of fun sending Lennon up the wing so Heskey can bundle one in against the Germans.

Having never played it, I was surprised how much fun Legends of Westlemania is. Same for WWE All Stars.

Apart from the obvious ones (GTA, COD etc), what are the decent 360 games I should be getting?

@scratchdj I enjoyed the first Crackdown game. Set in an open-world city where you control an enhanced agent, so can jump over buildings/throw cars depending on which attributes you want to level up. It's a bit aimless like some open-world games can be - I don't think I ever completed it because I just never felt the need too - but it's good fun.

I'd recommend the first Crackdown as well. Maybe my favourite 360 exclusive. It's like a sort of hybrid of GTA, a platformer and Streets of Rage. Nothing to it but leaping around the place battering cheesy baddies, holding off waves and collecting those agility orbs. 

Seriously, it's worth it just to spiderman around the place getting every orb you can. 

I'd recommend the first two Dead Rising games, too. I personally like 2 the best. The weapon modifications opened up the combat a lot more and casinos are cooler than shopping malls.

I'm guessing no online multiplayer stuff.

Far Cry Blood Dragon

The Skate games

Dead Space

Alan Wake

Fight Night Champion 

Outrun 2, Hydro Thunder, Pure and Split Second for some cracking arcade racing.

Saints Row 2.

Kingdoms Of Amalur: Reckoning

The SoulCalibur 2 HD remake. 

Sonic Generstions isn't too bad, but there's a really good Sega Megadrive collection on 360. The ports on it are better than the ones on the next gen Megadrive compilations as well.
