Need advice on Xbox

I think I'm going to buy an Xbox this a.m. and was wondering what can't miss titles you guys might suggest. I'm a big fan of the first-person shooter, but a motorcycle racing game would be cool too. Adventure games are okay, but I don't like the third-person perspective (never have been able to get the hang of those). I am not a sports game fan.

Title suggestions?

Halo,Mechassault,Moto GP2 ... These would make a great start. They've been out a while so are a bit cheaper yet they are a must for anyone with a Xbox.

Life always looks better through bugs on a face shield.

Re: Need quick advice on Xbox

That's a good start, thanks bro.

Edit: Is Halo a first-person shooter?

Re: Need quick advice on Xbox

Thanks!

Y'know, MechAsault still looks appealing even though that's not the game style I prefer. Looks like alot of fun.

And MotoGP2 is the most currently available one for Xbox?

Re: Need quick advice on Xbox

Ghost Recon looks pretty cool, but I don't see anyplace where they tell you what game style you're buying...maybe I'm blind. Anyone have this title?

Edit: Looks like it's EITHER.

The first thing you'll notice when you start up Ghost Recon 2 is a dramatic shift from first- to third-person. You can manually switch back to first-person if you like at any time, but you'll want to stick with the new perspective.

Re: Need quick advice on Xbox

One more question on Halo before I head to the store to shop...should I get Halo or jump right to Halo 2?

Re: Need quick advice on Xbox

Halo 2 supports XBox Live, Halo doesn't. They're both good IMO....

Oh oh oh, get yourself a copy of Mercenaries, it's good for those days when you want the satisfaction of blowing crap up. Quite fun and has a wide range of things you can do.

Re: Need quick advice on Xbox

Thanks Conq. I don't think I'll worry too much about the Live! option just yet since this is my first new console since an old PS1 (and I get my online fix with CoD on the PC).

I think I'll get Halo, it's only $28.00 at Toys-R-US.

Off to shop then.
