    Gears will supply you with many hours of co-op fun, and a handful of hours of multiplayer fun (atleast in my experience)

    If you enjoy car racing sims Forza 2 is a must.

    That's all I can firmly recomend beyond any shadow of a doubt. The rest gets rather subjective rather quickly.

    Viva Pinata, Gears of War, and Crackdown are all good, as is Rainbow Six: Vegas.

    have heard good things about gears of war for sure, any word on that "mech" game ? i heard it can be very very subjective.

    Gears

    I still play that game online with Arcadians

    For a mech game... I'd suggest Lost Planet. It isn't a mech game persay, but you use them quite a bit

    Must haves:

    Gears
    Oblivion
    Rainbow Six
    Crackdown is a lot of sandboxy fun
    Shadowrun is a blast and has a much friendlier community than Gears
    Guitar Hero II

    I personally am loving Tenchu Z, however a lot of people would disagree with me.

    I felt Crackdown got old quickly.. It also doesn't have much challenge, unless you include the (very well done) achievements. A good game, but I don't think I'd pay full price for it.

    Oblivion is a great, time consuming game. Definitely something I'd recommend.

    Well, the thing about Crackdown is it doesn't have much in the way of....Made fun. Oblivion has a lot of 'made fun'. Caves to explore, quests to do, etc. Crackdown is more like a box of action figures and toy cars. There's not a lot you can do without just plain fucking around, which is the whole concept of the game.

    By sheer value and addictiveness, games that you'll keep going back to?

    Geometry Wars, Crackdown, and Project Gotham Racing 3, by far are the two most noteworthy, and I think almost everyone will agree on this.

    For games that you just have to "have" to credibly call yourself an Xbox360 owner, the list more or less is, in order:

    Gears of War
    Dead Rising
    Rainbow Six: Vegas
    Forza Motorsport 2

    Games that I can't personally vouch for because I don't own them, but are also well recommended, and in fact really belong in the above category:

    Guitar Hero 2
    Oblivion
    Ghost Recon: Advance Warfighter
    Viva Pinata
    Castlevania (XBLA)
    Dead or Alive 4
    Oblivion

    I'll just echo a lot of people here

    Geometry Wars.
    Rainbow Six.
    Alien Hominid (i still have yet to play this co-op, but its pretty fun none the less)
    TMNT 1989 arcade is a blast.

    I really enjoyed Tomb Raider: Legend, but i know that not everybody did. (download the demo)

    you already have guitar hero, so thats taken care of.

    Marvel: Ultimate Alliance
    Top Spin 2
    Crackdown
    Dead Rising

    I'm betting that Harry Potter 5 will be awesome too, if you're at all into that.

    EDIT: How the fuck did I forget Dead Rising?

    I am not going to say that your own ideas of what makes a good/fun game are wrong. That being said:

    Perfect Dark Zero is shit. Not the shit like chips ahoy the chewy kind. Just plain, shit, like drinking placenta while listening to nickleback.

    Also, stay the hell away from spider-man 3.

    Opinions are opinions after all. I base my PD0 suggestion on the fact that I've seen it for $10 new and it has Goldeneye Maps.

    I was unaware of this goldeneye business. It's shit with a road made of soild gold, just stay on the gold road and you will be fine (buy it).

    Still, what ever you do, don't even think about buying spider-man 3.

    GoW
    Guitar Hero 2
    GRAW 1 & 2
    Forza 2
    Project Gotham Racing 3

    Are *my* must haves. There are still lots of other sweet games though, but those six are the one's I felt compelled to buy. Oblivion, Rainbow6: Vegas, Call of Duty 2, and FEAR would also be worth considering above anything else.


    Edit: Oh and also Viva Pinata, if you can stomach tending to technicolor creatures that go by names like "Chewnicorn." It's a pretty sweet game.

    Gears is obvious, Dead Rising will supply you with many hours of entertainment as well. Rainbow six is great if youre into that. DOA4 is a great game to break out with more than 1 friend around. Forza will impress you with its perfect blend of arcade racer and hyper real racer, you can adjust to taste. Those are the fairly "must have" games I can think of, others are optional.

    For Live, Geometry wars is super sweet, and Prince of Persia Classic is also a must have in my mind (it is AMAZING).

    However for me, most of the really really must have games look to be coming up, so if he has a tight budget, let him know about (and see trailers for) Bioshock, Mass Effect, Project:Sylpheed(only 40 bucks, and a pretty sweet space combat sim if you set it up right, demo is up on Live now), and of course coming much later the 2 games people are sure to go ape for, Halo 3 and Assassin's Creed.

    Rasa pointed out Condemned: Criminal Origins and I would like to agree.

    Also, it is a bit late, but the Burger King Games (Mostly Big Bumpin') are hilariously awesome with 4 players.

    You could probably find them on Ebay for cheap.

    Shadowrun!

    I am a grouchy, tired old man and played from 11PM last nite till 4:30 in the morning. And while I have GH2, GOW, PDZ, etc. They are all collecting dust. I am dreaming Shadowrun strategies. Go over to the Shadowrun thread, get some of the team players added to your list, run through the tutorials, and join up.

    Shadowrun is probably the best example of a fun strategy based team game I can remember. I literally quit playing Halo3 beta as soon as I got the retail version. Yes it is great that you have a sky with cloud cover and atmospheric effects and all, but I prefer shadowrun.

    When I first played the PDZ demo I couldn't figure out what was wrong. I couldn't hit anything but I just figured I needed practice. Then I come to find out that the controls were messed up and the not hitting anything was the gameplay. Shadowrun is at least one letter grade better.
