Default Must Have XBOX Games?

Hey guys. I traded in my PS2 stuff for an XBOX last night and I bought Ninja Gaiden to get me started. I must say that the XBOX is an amazing jump from the PS2; way better console IMO. Any must have games that I need to buy? Halo 2 is ok but I would have to buy XBOX Live to even play it (SP looks stupid). I also wanna try out Forza Motorsports as well. What do you guys recommend?

Most of the Tom Clancy titles are worth having if you like games like that. The first Ghost Recon was kind of dated graphically even during the time that it came out but Island Thunder (the sequel) looks a bit better.

Out of the Xbox games I have, about the only ones I play are Halo, Outlaw Volleyball, Top Spin and Blood Rayne 2. Mercenaries was fun for a while. I haven't really liked many of the racing games (the main reason I bought a console) but I guess Burnout 3 is probably my favorite out of NFSU, SRS, Rallisport Challenge 2, and Burnout 3.

The Outlaw sports games are pretty fun and you can usually find them for like $10 or so.

Thief 3- I played it on Pc and Xbox and on Xbox it's a much better game. the Xbox controls are much more natural.

Test Drive: Eve of Destruction- great split screen game, a ton of fun for the arcade driving game buff.

MLB2K5- I haven't played MVP05 yet, but Ihave MLB2k5 and it's a great game and I have read a lot on the 2 and MLB is almost always the top pick. A buddy of mine who is not a gamer has played MLB on my system and MVP on somebody else's and he prefers MLB.

Kingdom Under Fire, Phantom Dust, and Breakdown definately get my "great but underappreciated" award. All of them are $20, and well worth every penny. Especially Breakdown, if you enjoy first-person action games and want to experience an interesting story that has a satisfying ending (*glares at Half-life 2 and Halo 2*).

If you like Doom 3, Doom 3 co-op has been a lot of fun. Did that for about 3 or 4 hours this evening. It's not scary at all playing this way though.

Thanks for the recommendations guys. I've been playing Ninja Gaiden and that is probably the hardest game I've ever played in my live. Also, I've been playing Midnight Club 3 and that is pretty kick arse. Halo 2 is pretty fun too. I found a 2 months XBOX Live card at work tonight so I'm going to use it here pretty soon lol.
