    Well, after years of being just a PC Gamer I have decided to get myself an Xbox 360 for Christmas. Now the question is what game should I get.

    Besides Halo 3, what is the first game (or games) I should get for the 360? Mind you, most of the games that are for the 360 & PC I already have on the PC.

    You can get an Xbox 360 with Forza 2 and another game included.

    As for others ... COD4, [insert sports game here], and you really can't go wrong with Assassin's Creed, Gears of War, Mass Effect.

    All Guitar Hero/Rock Band no dice, I am a guitarist and that is not fun for me. I see that it's hard, there aren't many 360 only games, COD4, Gears Of War, Orange Box, Oblivion, Mass Effect I am getting or already have for the computer.

    Assassin's Creed is a good idea, thanks, Lego Star Wars looks fun, Forza looks pretty good. Thanks for the ideas! Anyone else..

    Just abuse the Xbox live demos, great way to see what games you like in beetween mountains of Halo 3 online action.
