lol, nice... basically the best games for the 360 are: GoW(1&2), Halo(trilogy), oblivion(RPG, but still fun none the less), COD(2,3,4). do you just want to play FPS's? b/c LSW:CS (Lego StarWars complete saga is really fun), LIJ(Lego Indiana Jones, supposed to come out in a few weeks, and it looks awesome:

As awesome as The Orange Box is, don't get it for the 360 or Ps 3. If you just want to play thru the Half Life's and Portal, its fine, but TF2 in it is really laggy, and full of exploits that Valve hasn't fixed.

Believe me when I say it is well worth it. The only thing that lets it down is the musical score and even then near the end it picks up. There is just so much variation. One minute you could be steering an APC with a UV turret and then you are hurtling through mines on carts and then you are jumping on the back of a train!

The monsters I thought were all interesting if too few different ones. I love the Boomers that go "Boom!" before shooting. Great addition. Similarly, the weapons are not many, but all are cool in their own aspect (love the chainsaw bayonet and the blood that splashes all over the screen when you use it).

The graphics are superb and not very harsh on system requirements (to max it out I'd recommend a system like mine at minimum) but there were some random stutters that were due to HDD and consequently, some of the loading times are very long on the PC version at least.

I'm currently playing through the game on "Insane" difficulty and let me tell you, this game needs some serious skill.

All in all I'd give it an 8/10 on my scale (CoD4 gets an 8.5/10) so I think it's a great game for the single player. As for multiplayer, definitely give it a miss.

You can't go wrong with Halo3 and COD4 on 360. I rarely play COD4 on the 360 since I rather play it on the PC. I've passed H3 campaign on legendary, collected all skulls, need 3 achievements to unlock the Katana. I wish it would come to PC, I would so buy Vista just to play Halo3 PC.
