    Aside from Guitar Hero and Halo, this is the first system I have had since the N64 so are there any games for the 360 people would recommend looking into?

    Project Gotham Racing 4, best street racer on 360 (ATM)
    Dead Rising, so you can beat up zombies.
    Mass Effect, simply superb.
    Virtua Fighter 5, so I can beat you up.

    Halo 3... well you could give this a miss, seeing as you've not played any of the previous. Alternatively, you could download Halo from Microsoft, and Halo 2 is bound to be coming soon, then play Halo 3.

    Call of Duty 4 = video crack
    Assassin's Creed, beautiful game.
    Halo 3, fantastic multiplayer, just about everybody and their grandma has it.
    The Orange Box, 5 games in one, great value, great games.

    Those are my top picks.

    Dead Rising is the best game on the system. It never gets old.

    Call of Duty is the other game I would 100% recommend, especially if you want to join all of us who are playing it online.

    I echo everyone else. Dead Rising, best way to spend $30. There is so much to do in the game that you'll get lots and lots of hours out of it. Besides, what's more fun than taking a huge pneumatic drill and drilling though a zombie, walking around w/ the zombie spinning effectvely making a shield, slingling blood everywhere?!

    Ace Combat 6 is one the best air combat games ever.

    Mass Effect for the RPG and Sci-Fi.

    And for everything there is Halo 3.

    Ooh, glad this thread popped up in case i do get one for x-mas hehehe, course i won't be able to use online since i only have dial-up hehehe and its prolly the arcade 360 hehehe.

    So Dead Rising is really good huh? zombies i know so i guess i'm sold anyway hehehe

    Also gotta get Dynasty Warriors: Gundam(stupid name, shoulda been called Mobile Suit Gundam Warriors)

    Lets see guess Assassins Creed would be good too, and Marvel Ultimate Alliance if i don't get it for the PS2 first heh VF5 sounds good also, isn't DoA4 for 360 also? gotta have that if it is.

    Hmm considering i don't like FPS more choices would be nice also(FPS just bore me)

    Both Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter games are cool if you're into hardcore military action. They're short but still one of the most exciting gunfights I've had on my xbox.

    Rainbow Six: Las Vegas was the reason why I got an Xbox.

    Gears of War is an art (visually) for the 360. If you want to see what the Xbox 360 is capabile of, then use this game. Oh yeah, and good gun fighting.

    Dead Rising is stupid fun.

    Ace Combat 6 the best choice for air combat on the 360 for now, the rest of the of the air combat themed games on the 360 are weak. Plus the graphics are really good.

    Mass Effect is one hell of a ride.

    Halo 3 I enjoy because it's a quality shooter.

    Assassins Creed.... I have some mixed feelings for this game. I own it and play it none the less. It's the most different stealth game I have ever played. I believe Ubi will learn from it's mistakes and make a better sequel, because Ubisoft is good like that.

    Call of Duty 4 is also a good quality shooter, with more interesting options for online play.

    All I can think of for now.
