The best selection in my opinion:
  • Crackdown
  • Gears of War
  • Tomb Raider: Legend
  • WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2007

Gears or Oblivion are sure things. For all the rest, just get your silver account going and then try all the demos to make future descisions. The demos willl save you a lot of money. These recommendation threads are always hard because nobody knows your taste like you do. What are your favorite games on other systems? Genres?

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Gears of War

One of the above should be your first 360 game.

Gears, RB6: Vegas, Kameo and Saints Row.

They're my top pick.

Gears and Vegas are massive amounts of fun playing Co-op.

Kameo and Saints Row give you a deep single player experience.

The TOP 5 must own games in my opinion are... 1. Gears of War 2. Oblivion 3. Call of Duty 2 4.) Rainbow Six: Vegas 5.) GRAW 2 I say get Gears first because you'll just love the single and multiplayer. It's a great game because everyone plays it on XBL and it's a great way to meet new people and get your friends list growing!

I love Action Adventure, GTA type games, and shooters.

GTA you say? Saints Row was a total blast. Crackdown is open ended and fun but don't expect a GTA style story. Action Adventure? I loved both GRAW games, but honestly I'd get the 1st one since it's great and is now fairly cheap. Rent Tomb Raider, it's fun but really short. Kameo was fun and can be found extremely cheap. Not really action, but Condemned is also an amazing game. Shooters? Prey was pretty fun and looked great. And as I said before, Gears roolz. I also recommend Chaos Theory and Halo 2... both of which look much better than they did on the Xbox.

I love Action Adventure, GTA type games, and shooters.

In that case, I would highly recomend Gears of War (essential) or Saints Row.

First game should be Gears if you like shooters, NBA 2K7 if you like sports, Oblivion if you like RPG's, Burnout Revenge if you like racers (PGR3 if you like more sim racers). Other than that Rainbow is a great game, GRAW 2 is pimp, NHL 07 is solid along with MLB 2K7 and Def Jam Icon is a fun fighter and last but not least NBA Street Homecourt is a fun multiplayer game.
