I'm going out later to buy the 360 Elite and I was wondering...if I had only 1 game to buy to kick off my 360 experience, which one, in your honest opinion,would you suggest?

-Keep in mind, I don't like RPG's, racing games, andfantasy games. I'm a huge fan of shooters, war/action games, and sports games. (mainly football and baseball)

I'm kinda leaning towards Gears of War at the moment since that seems to be the game that everyone has been raving about over the last year. I'm definitely curious about BioShock and the Tom Clancy games (GRAW, GRAW2, Spinter Cell, Vegas).

1. Gears of War

2. FEAR - this one fell off the radar a little, but I think it's one of the better FPS's on the 360 - the single player and online multiplayer are great, and it's getting expansions at the end of october

Actually, I like racing games. However, I would only buy one if it really, REALLY kicks ass. The only racing game I've bought since the PS2 launched is Burnout 3.

I just got back from BestBuy (which is only 5 minutes from where I live). I picked up the Elite and a copy of GoW. It's funny cuz I had a conversation with the Electronics guy there and he kept insisting that GRAW2 and RS:V are better. I basically told him that I'll probably buy them down the road but I want to start with GoW. I haven't started playing yet cuz I'm getting to eat lunch. I can't wait to see what it's like.

Bioshock is one of the best games I've ever played, and I've been gaming for 20+ years. Also DEFINITELY get Gears of War, and since you said you love shooters, I'd highly, highly recommend Ghost Recon 2 and Rainbow Six Vegas. Both amazing games with killer online mutiplayer. Have fun!

These are the best games on the 360. Take your pick:

Gears of War, Bioshock, Oblivion, Dead Rising, Rainbow Six Vegas, Forza Motorsport 2, Call of Duty 3

Then there are some cheap games that aren't quite as good, but are underrated and extremely cheap now:

Burnout Revenge, Dead or Alive 4, FEAR, Saints Row

Those are all games I have, and I consider them the best of my 360 collection.
