So far I am liking it, :) picked up the arcade version since I wont be playing much Multiplayer. I bought it mainly for Halo 3 but just finished the game. I was thinking of picking up Gears of War 2, as well as Halo Wars. I do not keep track of games on this system so I asked if you guys are there any good recommendations of console only title's that I should take a look at?

Get Crackdown. That is about it for me.

Crackdown is like GTA on steroids. Very fun game.

I like Gears of War and Gears of War 2, but not everyone does.

Crackdown
The Darkness
Gears of War 2
Fable 2

I'm sure there other console exclusives on 360 worth owning, but none pop out in my head at the moment.

There's a ton of great XBLA games for download too, as well as a lot of fun expansions... you should get a HDD at some point, multiplayer has little to do with it.

Yep. Worthy games indeed. The Darkness is superb.

Mass effect is on the pc too, but is good on the 360.

Yep, what he said. Also Blue Dragon if you are into RPGs. Pac-Man Arcade CE is a must.

Could also add Fight Night 4 to that list if its your kinda thing, only on consoles afterall.

Blue Dragon was very meh, Lost Odessey is much better. Also Fight Night is a must buy if you like boxing (Or the Rocky films).

A big plus for Lost Odessey. Blue Dragon is good but personally I never got into it. I'm sure it's a great game but it seems not my type which is too bad.

I can't think of what other games to recommend but maybe later when I get home. Enjoy your new 360!

Street Fighter IV, unless your getting the PC version, I mainly mention this due to online play. Rock Band 2 has a huge music list with DLC if you get a HD later on, Resident Evil 5.

I enjoyed The Force Unleashed. Definitely Fight Night Round 4 and Resident Evil 5.

I spent nearly 60 hours on Blue Dragon. First JRPG I played this gen and I want more. Think I will get that Lost Odessey which you say is much better.

I actually turned the game off in disgust when that anaconda thing came on, I lost 5 times trying to kill it and then when I finally did, it spawned another one... I had such high hopes...

That boss was a pain, took me like 10 tries. Lost Odyssey was a bit old school in challenge, for sure. It's a great game though, I really need to finish it.

Blue Dragon I never played other than the demo... it seemed pretty terrible, though visually striking. I saw it at Gamespot the other day for $15 and thought I should get it for the hell of it.

Someone mentioned Force Unleashed, which I actually think is a pretty good game, though not as amazing as the old Jedi Knight games.
