Default I'm A Virgin

I've never ever owned a gaming console, I've only played games on my PC. Yet virtually all my older games don't play on Win10, only a few now.

I got a friend selling his xbox 360e with kinect, wireless controller, and 6 games for $70. He let me bring it home, and it does work.

Do you peps think it's worth it?
Should I go online with it? Or are there security concerns?
If I do go online, should I go direct to the router, our through my PC?
Do you think xboxlive is worth the money?
What kind of games would you recommend?

Anyway, you get my drift.
I know I'm asking for it, but any help and advice would be appreciated.

As someone who just bought a PC a few months ago to play games on, DON'T.

Get a new comp, you can get a decent gaming pc for <$500.

I have an xbox one and rarely use it.

I do have a 'puter that plays video games, and I got different controllers, and a large monitor.
There's still a store here that rents video games for the different consoles, but not for PCs.
So any PC games I want I have to buy, yet with the console I can rent first to see if I like 'em.
That's an advantage in my opinion.

You got a point there Bran. I am leaning towards getting it.
But ya gotta understand I'm a cheap bastard.
I still got my old P3 with Me up and running to play my older games.
I hate buying new games without trying them first.

I'll make up my mind by the end of the day.

So...I went ahead and bought the machine. Okay, so I'm a sucker.
Went to a few sites to compare prices, and it was in the lower range.
The machine is pristine, and with 6 games, I think it's a good bye for the price.

This will also get me to optimize my system for the power distribution and sonic picture across the several zones in my house.
I've been needing to do this for a while now. It's been out of balance ever since I had to replace my shelf system. It was a quick wire-up, just to get sound out, and I have been lazy ever since.
It'll take me all day, but when you have 3 amps driving 18 speakers at 2800 watts RMS...into 3 zones....you have to be careful...and very diligent!

From you guys and gals, what I want to know, is what kind of games do you like.
I'm willing to try anything, so long as I can rent them first!

Have spent the whole day, taking out the old speaker wiring in the house, and fishing new Monster Cable. Expensive, but oxygen free wiring, with silver/tin solder, to attach the banana plugs, is worth it. It will last me for the rest of my life!
Disconnected my Dual turntable, don't have that many vinyl records to play,
and the needles are way too expensive any more!
Cassette, CD, DVD, and blue ray are all reconnected.
Repaired my base drivers.. 2 electrolytic caps and 1 coil replaced.
Made sure the phasing of the speakers was correct, then cranked it up.
The o'scope showed a few sonic hips and valleys, an RMS of 350 watts!
at 4.8 ohms, that's damn good!
Tomorrow, I'll connect the system to the internet through my 'puter.
It'll take me the whole day, but it will be worth it!

I have no idea what you just said BB.
