    Of course! What are you trying to say? :oops:

    However, I do expect him to lend it to me from time to time. 8)

    Ive been told to get 1 and 2 , as ive never played it. Still waiting for MW3 to be honest and formula 1 2012. Giving Fifa a miss this year, its smoother , ish, and theres a few tweaksbut other than that, its that same. Give pro evo a mis if i were you lot, thats just pants.

    I really enjoyed gears 2, bought 1 as well to play through when I get a spare moment currently going through AOT 40th day which is cool. Trouble with my game playing is I only get to play once Mrs dales disappears off to bed and I normally only have the stamina to stay up later on a friday night. its takes me ageeeesss to play through games.

    I'm not really into driving or football games, not least because I'm naff at them. Two of my lads really enjoy them though, and I'm sure that one said he's going to get FIFA when it comes out.

    I really like the look of Battlefield 3. The graphics seem to be amazing. I'm sure it'll be on someone's Christmas list in our house this year. Not so sure about MW3 though.

    Went to the midnight launch with a friend on Tuesday (and booked the day off work to play it - sad eh? :p) and have played it solidly since. Only two chapters to finish the game now. :)

    Completed 1 & 2 on insane and played a LOT of 2 online.

    How are you finding it Giddy?

    Got the limited edition on release day - so worth it, awesome game. Though I fervently wish I'd booked the time off work to play it, now!

    Mind you, Skyrim is the next biggie *waves goodbye to life* though I have about 8 titles on preorder at the moment.

    Same - limited edition all the way! Got both 1 & 2 limited editions, so it was a no brainer. Picked up a very cheap TV from Argos recently as well, so it's very pretty in it's 1080p 42" glory.

    Up for some co-op some time Dawn? PM me your gamertag! :)

    In ordered order:

    Skyrim
    Dark Souls
    Sonic Generations
    Tomb Raider
    Resident Evil : Operation Racoon City
    Mass Effect 3
    Final Fantasy XIII-2
    Aliens : Colonial Marines
    Metal Gear Solid : Rising
    Kingdoms of Amalur : Reckoning

    I toyed with the Batman purchase, but as the only other game in that franchise I've played is the Lego one I wasn't too sure of it. Plus two (or perhaps 3) other games coming next month and a couple of graphic novel special editions, my parents will kill me when all of this heaps through the door.

    Give a good argument for it and I'll consider it (if I get any more overtime in, which I doubt!)

    And if you can't guess the gamertag, you don't really deserve to add me lol.

    Already sent you a message yesterday through xbox.com, so it should pop the next time you log in on your console. :p

    Nice list, though I can't stress how good the first Batman was. I've only ever fully 1000 pointed two games, and this was one of them. It's THAT good. You can pick it up dirt cheap now too!

    Metacritic review - Batman: Arkham Asylum for Xbox 360 Reviews, Ratings, Credits, and More at Metacritic

    Amazon have it for £7 used! Linky - http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0042T6ENW/ref=asc_df_B0042T6ENW4528636?smid=A3SBAR09Z1XP08&tag=googlecouk06-21&linkCode=asn&creative=22218&creativeASIN=B0042T6ENW

    You won't be disappointed, I promise you.

    It scores higher on metacritic than Gears of War 3. Good enough for you?
