    hi i'm buying myself a 360 today. i'm looking for some recommendations for games to buy. i'll probably buy 2 to start with. i generally lean toward shooters but and open to other things. so what are some definitive must have games?

    Fallout 3 and Bioshock.
    They're great on PC, probably great on Xbox too.

    Um, Halo 3? That's pretty much standard though. :)

    i want something with multiplayer. also i was never a big halo fan. i like my shooters with a little more of a lifelike feel to them. any thoughts on left 4 dead?

    It's the best co-op game around. I forgot there was a 360 version :D Probably my fave game of 2008.

    4 Gears of War 94
    5 Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The 94

    10 Fallout 3 93
    11 Guitar Hero II 92
    12 Rock Band 92
    13 Rock Band 2 92

    15 Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 90
