HELLO LJ LONG TIME NO SEE!

Being gainfully employed and actually being able to pay my electric bills the instant they come in has made me into a consumer, so I now own an XBox360. My question to you, the few who belong to the set of people who a) still read LJ and b) are game-nerds - any recommendations on games? Keep in mind that I'm not at all a player, so things that are two or three years old are AWESOME recommendations and also things that I can pick up on the cheap. My loves are: Rock Band and games where I kick people in the head. Dislikes = so-called RP games where I have to plan out a character path and put points into being a necromancer or baking cookies in order to progress into all-powerful-Joe-Bob-Number-3 (Death Knight edition!). Blech. Puzzles can be fun. A solid and interesting game universe is...solid and interesting. Zombies = always a bonus!

Finally saw Tideland earlier this week, and it kind of sort of righteously fucked my noggin. I assumed I would be one of the people who loved it, but instead I find myself one of the people who doesn't know what to think, though I definitely appreciate the beauty and the craft and the way Terry Gilliam managed to creep me out but good. I like warped-innocence kid movies! But the main character isn't warped by her experiences, or is, or is running around with her fingers in her ears going 'LA LA LA' - I don't know at all. Maybe Tideland has started up long echoey ripples of thought, and I can't see the end of the wave yet.
