    I say...

    Dead Space
    Need For Speed: Most Wanted (the best of the 360 series IMHO)
    Prey
    Full Auto (closest to a Death Race game we're ever gonna get)
    Marvel Ultimate Alliance
    Pure
    Burnout Paradise
    Prince of Persia

    Start with that & tell me what you think.

    If he didn't like Fallout 3 then Mass Effect wont be up his street either.

    Also, Turning Point, Fall of Liberty is total ass. You'd get more fun sticking a needle in your eye.

    My recommendation? Go online on XboxLive and download some demo's. Some aren't 100% representations of the final games (for instance SW:TFU pretty much gives full Force powers in the Demo, in the game proper you have to earn them).

    As a racing fan I'm surprised PGR:4 is not in your list.

    I'm surprised no one has said this yet, but I really recommend Left 4 Dead. I know it's a game by Valve, but this is nothing like any Valve games. A must try IMO.

    Mass Effect! It's one super duper <insert word to describe awsome> adventure! You may not have digged Fallout 3, but Mass Effect's combat is more... uhm.... "shooterish" than Fallout 3 (still a good game btw, try it again maybe? :)  )

    Also check out Call of Duty 4.

    There's also Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 1 and 2. Both have great single player games and are very tactical.

    Then there's Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Las Vegas 1 and 2. If you want shooter action that's more "swat" like than open ground military stuff.

    I keep mentioning Tom Clancy games because I'm gay for them. :D

    I would recommend putting these games at the bottom of your list, but that's just me.

    It's a cool idea for a game but it looks and feels half assed to me. There was a demo up for it on Live, you might want to look to see if it's still there.

    Kidding. Anywho, here's the games I recommend (though they're basically almost all of the games I own)

    -Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
    -Burnout Paradise
    -Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
    -Grand Theft Auto IV
    -Halo 3
    -Soul Calibur IV

    As for other 360 games (or ones I don't own), here's what I recommend also:

    -BioShock
    -Crackdown
    -Dead Rising
    -Gears of War
    -Gears of War 2
    -The Orange Box

    Turning Point isn't a bad game per se, but it feels more like a PS2 game that was prettied up (sorta) & released for 360. It just doesn't cut it when there's stuff like Halo 3 and COD 4 out there.

    Belated answer to your question: yeah, Burnout Paradse has free roam, but the bikes you have to download off Live.

    More additions to the list--Battlefield: Bad Company, Stranglehold, The Orange Box & anything with the word "Lego" preceeding a licensed property in the title.

    even more reason to get Live lol

    and the Lego games rock all except the Batman one that one sucks but ive never played Indiana Jones

    im very undecided on Fallout 3 it just doesnt look like a game I would like what with all the monsters and wierd stuff lol

    Crackdown looks good ive thought about it but ive heard from a few friend s its not too good

    Gears Of War ive played a little of the first one I dont much care for it might give it another go though

    Banjo Kazzoie thats a game I forgot about might give that a try too but idk

    even MORE reason to get Live lol

    but keep in mind if anything is great Multiplayer thats useless to me until I get Live or another controller lol

    also im just renting these games I have no where near the money to buy some :(
