Got XBOX for XMAS, what games should I get?

OK guys and gals, what games should I get for my XBOX, I got ghost Recon and the games it came with , but I would like to know what games you all like and are playing.. I like shooting and racing games, not to big into sports except skating and snowboarding. Do they have a motorcycle racing game?

Talking

sounds like I have to get the HALO game. Is it like Ghost Recon, I like that game, running around in a sniper suit looking to take the shot!

I would go out and rent some games and see if you like them before you buy anything. I just rented the NFS Hot Pursuit for PS2 and it's got sum kickass cars and races.The Splinter Cell looks cool and it deals with taking people off 1 by 1 like special ops. I'm not sure what other games X-Box has.

I wasn't really excited about this Xbox Live crap until I started reading the information about it included in the Splinter Cell instruction booklet. Apparently, you can download new levels/missions using Xbox live every once in a while. If it were only for playing against other people online, I'd say screw it, but, damn, the whole downloadable game expansion crap is a big selling point, I think.

You my friend have obviously never experienced a 16 player MotoGP XBox Live race, or Unreal Tournament match. It will own you. Give it a try. If you like sports games, you can download new rosters periodically also.

Well I had a BBY gift certificate and picked up an Xbox and a few games....

Outlaw Golf...described as Tiger Woods meet strippers. Hot chicks playing golf in halter tops. Hilarious commentary and very realistic playability.

MotoGP.....enough said

Splinter Cell....very similar to Metal Gear.

Ghost Recon....played all night. How/ where do you find more dam ammo?

The car racing game and that skater game that it came with are decent too.

Who's got Xbox live here? I'd get it if a few of the boyz in here wanted to play.



Need to get Halo

I'm on the Chinese Embassy mission right now, right after the Kalinatek one (which I thought was kinda badass). This one's just hella hard though.

There's a spot without barbed wire on the left side, if you're facing the front. Alternatively, if you don't get in before the fan turns off there is another way in, but I'm sure it's easier to just run in before the fan turns on.

As far as I know, there's really no codes out, just strategy guides an' shit. It's too bad, too, 'cause, man, I was lookin' for a way to skip through the first several missions so I didn't have to play them again when I got the game.

Do you mean the part where you walk thru that courtyard, up the 6 steps, climb up the ladder and open the hatch on the roof?
