I was surprised we don't have a thread for purchases yet (unless there was one from years ago that's now locked) so I went ahead and created this thread. I figure this thread can be for any Xbox purchase (Xbox One, 360 or even OG Xbox) to discuss and share.

So my latest purchase is Greedfall on the Xbox One. Been wanting to give this game a chance since I like RPGs, I just didn't have time for this game when it was released, but with it being on sale for $25 and being on lockdown I figure now's as good as any time to get it.

I haven't heard too many bad things about this game just that it doesn't do anything special, but as I said for $25, why not.

Got myself copy of Anthem for 5 euros. Haven't played it yet, but I believe that 5€ is fine price. Even if I hated it, it is not that big a loss.

I'm hovering over Final Fantasy VII in the sales. Never played it, looks outdated to me now. But I loved Legend of Dragoon back in the day, so I feel like I'd love this.

@FraserG As someone who loved Legend of Dragoon I was disappointed with FF VII. Yeah LoD was a long game (4 discs I believe) but the story flowed and never really slowed down, while FF VII felt like it just dragged on and on and honestly didn't need to be as long as it was.

It always surprised me that Final Fantasy VII got so much praise while Legend of Dragoon got none.

The last physical game I bought for each system was:

Xbox one: Resident Evil 2 (played and completed)
Xbox 360: Escape Dead Island
Xbox: Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay

@Tasuki Ah, interesting! Thanks for sharing that. I think I'm still on the fence for now.

Doom 64!
I’m really looking forward to playing this game, as I love Doom and I’ve never played this game before.
I never got it on N64 back in the day, and this is the first time it’s released on any other format.

@Captain_Chao5 Very nice!!! I thought about getting an Xbox One X bit with the series X around the corner I might just hold off.

@Tasuki Yeah. Total surprise! I was hoping for the game. She managed to blag an empty game case and wrapped that as a joke, then gave me the Xbox bundle. I was blown away!

does dlc count? I bought The Boss' sneaking suit for Metal Gear Solid V because she's such a BA and it was only 90 cents lol. Imo, it's the best looking suit for women, with the standard sneaking suit coming in second.

Since I found out that I can play as a soldier lady, I haven't touched Snake at all. It doesn't really affect the story very much.

I bought Rise of the Tomb Raider, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Queen’s Quest 4, Resident Evil 0 and Forgotton Anne at really good prices in the various sales and specials going on right now.

@JoakimZ Forgotton Anne is one of those games I thought was OK at the time, but it really stuck with me. Beautiful game with a great story.

Just ordered Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Mirror's Edge, Red Faction Armageddon, Crysis 2, and Battlefield 3 for Xbox 360. Bit of a shopping spree today since I've been wanting to buy these games all week but never got around to it.

I bought Modern Warfare 3 again because my previous order of the game was cancelled since the store apparently hadn't updated the stock amount on their site. So I bought it from another site and while I was at it, I got Mirror's Edge as well since it looks like a nice change of pace from all the shooting games I've been playing. Red Faction has been on my to-buy list for some time now and I got Crysis 2 since I'm playing through this series in order and I'm liking the first Crysis a lot so I think I'll like the second one as well. Battlefield 3 was kind of an impulse purchase since I wasn't planning on buying any more military shooters. However, I haven't played many Battlefield games and I like the emphasis on vehicles in these games so I figured to give BF3 a try (I've already played the Bad Company games).

Bought Tomb Raider and Rise of Tomb Raider. Accidentally bought the DLC for Shadow of the Tomb Raider (thought it was the definitive edition, I was tired!) so will have to track down a cheap copy of the vanilla game on disc to get any savings out of it.

Just ordered Mafia II and 007: Quantum of Solace on Xbox 360. I've been eyeing a 360 copy of Mafia II for months now and one finally arrived in stock today. I've also been playing a lot of Mafia 1 on original Xbox and I'm pretty hooked on this series, so I'm definitely looking forward to playing the second game. I also got Quantum of Solace as a bonus since I've been looking out for more James Bond games to play and this one seems decent enough. It's developed by one of the Call of Duty developers and seeing as how I've been loving the CoD games that I've played recently, I think I'll like this game as well!

Also bought Strider and Stranger Things 3: The Game in the Xbox Spring Sale as well as DOOM 64 since I've been wanting to play that game for a while now. Lots of Xbox gaming and achievement hunting coming up!
