    I've been tempted by Microsoft's gaming system for some time and I have some questions about it.

    Right now, I'm leaning more towards the 360 unless I end up finding a good deal on a regular Xbox somewhere.


    So far the must-have games look to be Dead Rising and some version of Halo. What else should I consider?


    Is there anything special I should know about either system?

    Gears of War is a fantastic game. One not to be missed.

    Gears of war is great, also I picked up Viva Pinata and it is addictive as hell.

    Gears is awesome.

    Dead Rising was the first game I beat on the 360. Wonderful game.

    Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter is sweet.

    360 is awesome. And yes, get Halo and Halo 2. Both awesome original Xbox games. Another backwards compatible game I'd recommend is Ninja Gaiden Black.

    Get a 360 since Halo is backawards compatible with it. Plus the Marketplace is too sweet and you'll be hooked on getting those achievements. Every 360 title has a total of 1,000 achievment points to earn

    Now when I play PS2 , GC or Xbox games Im almost bummed I didnt earn an achievment when I do soemthing rad.

    Speaking of achievments. I thing Buzzbeak has the most. Check out his gamerscore, holy crap man. Even got all 1,000 on Madden. Damn dude

    By now there's too many great games to list (not really, just lazy) and you can always hit Gamefaqs.com for some reviews before you buy while researching
