If you have a 360 you have to get a Halo game... Either halo 3 or the new Reach.

Gears of war(1 or 2) is great choice too.

If you haven't played them, you should try one of the call of duty games. Either World at war, Modern warfare 2, or Black ops is coming out soon I think (they are basically the same game anyway)

Fix your topic title. It looks stupid.

do you have any other consoles? what PC games have you played (so I dont' suggest some that are available on both).

Red Dead is a good game, but the pace is really slow, so it might not be for everyone (I haven't played it as much).

for COD, i'd wait for Black Ops.. MW2 has a lot of kids using modded controllers/aim botters etc.

the gears of war games are good, dead rising 2 is coming out tomorrow (pick up the original - a bit dated looking, but still lots of fun and can be had for cheap).

Arkham Asylum
Rock Band 2 (or 3 which comes out next month)
Red Dead Redemption was definitely a good buy too

No sir i only have the 360,Im a Pc gamer at heart but theres alot of games on the 360 that didnt make it to pc so thats why i got the 360,not only that its nice to have something that just works! Unlike the pc sometimes that throws you errors or lags

there's going to be lag on XBL multiplayer as well...

but anyways, here's my list of games that I've played and enjoyed.

Batman Arkham Asylum
Dead Space
Gears of War 1 & 2
Dead Rising 1 & Case Zero (DLC Demo/Prequel to DR2)
Borderlands + DLC (new one coming out tomorrow)
Left 4 Dead series
Ninja Gaiden 2
Assassin's Creed 2
Bioshock 1 & 2
Bayonetta (currently still playing)
Darksiders
Saints Row 1 & 2 - not as polished as GTA, but still lots of fun.
GTA4 + DLC
COD MW2 - only reason I still play is I have a bunch of friends to play as a group with.

If you are into JRPGs, Lost Odyssey and FF13 are really good.

If you are into Racing games, NFS Shift wasn't that bad, and of course there's Forza 3.

There's also some Xbox Live Arcade games that are pretty decent.

Lots of good retail games have been listed. I'll toss in a couple of XBL games:

Shadow Complex
Braid
Castle Crashers

There's lots of quality rereleases/remakes up on XBL as well.
