Here's some very good games that make a change from the standard shooting game that the 360 keeps churning out.
Viva Pinata is an entertaining game similar to the sims but with innovative elements that will keep everyone enthrilled as long as you can look past the bright graphics.
Even though it looks like it's for kids, it's actually exciting to an audience of all ages and has been described as "the best kids game that isnt a kids game that has been released in years" but my older sis and her children also love the game.
It's now available for £12.99 for the Collectors Edition from Shopto, with the next lowest price being Tesco Jersey at £15 but we all know how slow they are at getting games out, whereas Shopto will always dispatch the same day, which the site states arrives the next morning 99% of the time. :)
Forza 2 is also available at a bargain price of just £13.99 which is surprisingly addictive for speed freaks as well as real driving sim lovers.
The customisation section is also excellent with a huge variety of cars from every major manufacturer in the world, which you can then put your own twist to sell your cars online to buy even better cars.
Don't forget to go through Quidco as well to receive 4% cashback to make these games even better value.
Hope that helps. :)
