I prefer games that way. Circle strafing became loads easier.
Heh, me too. I use my PC gamepad when playing Halo on the PC, sounds retarded I know, but it's easier for me. Just what my brain is used to I guess.

Arrow Re: Just got an Xbox.

Dead or Alive = properly coded martial arts. cute girls, too.
Elder Scrolls Morrowind = excellent Role Playing
Halo 1 & 2 = xBox's killer apps. First person shooters
Prince of Persia - Sands of Time = platform + combat
Oddworld - Munch's Oddysey = silly platform game
Outlaw Golf 2 = anything that can make golf fun... most excellent multi-player game
Soul Caliber II = sword fencing
Splinter Cell = stealth and puzzles with first person shooter style
SSX3 = excellent snowboarding
Star Wars - Knights of the Old Republic = Role Playing

I won't buy anything without a 9 out of 10 at ign.com. They are solid reviewers.

Edit: oh yeah, Full Spectrum Warrior is supposed to be a good strategy game, but I don't own it yet.

PS
Buy used games and Microsoft won't increase their revenues.

Well, I wouldn't really bother with the games that are on PC as well. I'm assuming you have a good gaming PC as well, right? I enjoyed games like Knights of the Old Republic, Splinter Cell and Morrowind much more on my PC than I would on my Xbox. Full Spectrum Warrior and PoP are on PC too.

There are a game or two that I'd enjoy on Xbox more though, like Pro Evolution Soccer 4, and I kind of liked PoP Warrior Within with the controller too.

I mainly game on my PC, I have my PS2 for exclusives like FF, DMC, MGS etc. I'm a big Bioware fan, so I had to get Jade Empire. Since I got the XB, I'm looking for other exclusives that are worth it.

I also have a choice now, in PS2/Xbox common games, since I expect the Xbox to run them better overall due to the superior hardware, even if this is not a common occurence. This was the case with Splinter Cell:CT, they had to modify the PS2 version to make it run properly, and as a result it got lower reviews.

Another game I have in mind is Episode 3, which will be a console exclusive and I'll wait and see if the PS2 handles it well.
