Oh God, Dead Rising- I love that game more than you could imagine. Once you get past the save system (which isn't bad at all once you get used to it) you'll get sucked in so quickly.

Oh yeah, Dead Rising is great as well. I love how slamming a shower head on to a zombie causes blood to shoot out the top. It was a nice touch . But anyway, (this is directed to the original poster by the way) download a bunch of demos off the Xbox Live Marketplace. Most of the demos will give you a good feel on how the games play. One demo I reccomend is Ninety Nine Nights. It's not a game for everyone, but a lot of the people I know that liked it are addicted to it. Great single player game in my opinion, and if you're familiar with the Dynasty Warriors series, it plays a lot like those.

imho, Halo3, GOW, and Ace Combat 6 are the best on that list. they all look good, but it just depends on what you like.

Depends on his preference. I got Bioshock for the 360 simply to avoid the whole SecuROM thing.

To be honest, I can't think of any other games that haven't already been mentioned. Maybe Kameo if you liked the Banjo Kazooie series, and if you're looking for just some kind of "different" shooter, give Prey a try. Could probaly find it for $10 somewhere.. The storyline is kind of weak toward the beginning, but it gets better later on. All the guns are "organic" (think alien-like guns) and none require reloading, and a few of them are hybrids of another.

The last thing I can reccomend to you is XBL Arcade games. Geometry Wars is great, but don't expect to get all the achievements. Carcasonne is okay, and Catan is just as addicting as the board game. If you have a lot of friends with them, Texas Hold Em and Uno are good times for Xbox live. Don't forget the freebies though-- Aegis Wing and Yaris arn't too bad.

NO man dont buy Blue Dragon

Lost Odyssey is so much better, its crazy good. I just got on the second disk and man this game is like all of the ps1 jrpg's all over again with more cutscenes and way better graphics. Dont read the "profesional" reviews cus they got it all wrong. They trash it for having long load times and because it has nothing new apparently. Well I have it and I can say that the load times are never longer than 10 seconds and in terms of this game offering new stuff well thats a whole new story.

This game brings the jrpg's into the current generation with a bang. I have not played a game of this caliber since the final fantacy games on the psx and ff10 on ps2. I highly reccommend this game.

Also i think its worth mentioning that its 4 dvd's long.

Halo 3 is good game, Bioshock, Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed all good rentals.
