New to Xbox Live Gold

I've never been one for online gaming, but I now have 12 months of Xbox Live Gold. Most of my current games don't have an online play component. What do I get to catch up on it? What has a sizeable community to play with these days? I know some kind of Modern Warfare or Halo is the obvious choice, but I'm not that great at FPS games. I'll still accept those suggestions, since I'm sure they make up 80% of online console games, but what else is both fun and still popular?

    Assassin's Creed Brotherhood has a really good and unique multiplayer element. I haven't played it in a few months, but I imagine the community is still going strong for it.

    Well right now Call of Duty Black Ops probably will have the strongest community, Halo reach wouldn't be far behind. In a few months you'll have Gears of War 3 and Battlefield 3 both will have large communities in all likelihood. All of these are shooters though so may not be your cup of tea.

    Blops and Halo Reach are going to be the top games, definitely. Could also consider some of the cheaper arcade games.

    What is this I don't even.

    Really, if you're new to multiplayer gaming, I'd steer clear of COD and Halo. They have very established communities, and although you can join 'novice' games, you're going to be out of your element.

    I recommend picking up Borderlands. Grab the GOTY edition for the DLC.

    Section 8 Prejudice is a multiplayer title that's new and has a number of Penny Arcade people playing it, and because it's an Arcade title it's only $15 as opposed to the higher price you'd pay for the latest Call of Duty or Halo. Also because it's an Arcade title you can play the multiplayer for half an hour as a trial.
