Default Got a new Xbox 360, please recommend

Had a launch Xbox 360, but sold it a couple of years ago. Just got a great deal on a 120GB Elite bundle, so I'm back in the 360 scene.

So what are some of the must-buy 360 games I've missed in the past few years? I also have a PS3.

Ain't much more than that which isn't also on PC or PS3. Fable 2 I guess, but I hated that excercise in simplicity.

Word around the sowing circle is that the 360 version is the one to get. The PS3 version suffers from long load times and "more" frame rate issues

And low resolution textures all around and missing missing shadows.

A poor port done by SEGA, not Platinum Games.

After some years, there got to be some good games that are cheap. The advantage of not having to buy games at launch day, they are as good a year later although multiplayer might be lacking (few opponents).

Here is a list of games (most of them I guess, excluding Live games etc)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Xbox_360_games
You can sort by clicking the columns once or twice, like f.e. on date+region/exclusive.

I'd say good 360 games are the following:

Halo 3
Forza Motorsport 3
Crackdown
Project Gotham Racing 4


These are all exclusives. If you don't already have Halo 3, keep in mind that Halo 3 ODST comes with the multiplayer of Halo3 on the 2nd disc and all the DLC maps.

Gawd, you guys got that right. I played and finished it to damn well get the most out of my $60 then traded it in promptly as possible.

I'll add 'Dead Rising' as a game to get, just be sure you know it's a timed game when you start it.
