    ok I need some new games..so far have "halo" I dont care for it at all never was one for shooters.have "morrowind" ok but slow loading and the time it takes to get from one place to another is way too long.."the thing" this maybe the best game I have so far
    "enclave" good game but no in game save is a real bitch..not much into sports games although "tiger woods golf" seems ok..rented "turok" what a pile of crap..
    thinking about RtCW but I always get bored with shooters but the nazi zombie aspect hmmm..have "project gotham" fun for a few minutes but not real deep as far as I can tell..
    based on above anybody care to give their recommendations??

    I really am enjoyed RTCW myself but if you didn't like Halo you may want to rent it first. What type of game are you looking for.

    Midtown Madness 3 is fun and a bit deeper than Project Gotham. You have the racing aspect but there are also "crazy taxi" type missions and the online aspects of it is very fun.

    I've been playing Knights of the Old Republic and it is a very good game so far and I don't think there are too many sections that require going back and forth endlessly.

    The only other game which has been seeing a LOT of play lately has been Tetris Worlds Online.

    I have read good and bad about "deathrow" have not been able to rent it though along those lines I did try "mortal kombat" the new one and found it boring as hell which was strange considering I thought the first two were great although that was MANY years ago...Im more into games that require thought rather than button mashing..examples from pcland "sacrifice" dk1 and dk2 "deus ex" and I thought "black and white" was awesome for about 15 minutes but I basically have given over to the darkside and no longer game on the pc

    In August you have to get Soul Calibur II. (I have the import)

    Never really liked fighting games but I'm hooked!

    KOTOR is addictive as well.
    If you like racing how about rally racing?
    Rallisport Challenge and CM3 are awesome.
    MotoGP2?
    Halo is the granddaddy of shooters on the box so forget any others.

    i'll second the Fatal Frame recommendation.

    and if you like that, then try Silent Hill 2 - personally, i can't get enough survival/horror gaming...

    Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance is pretty fun, too; by the same people who made Knights of the Old Republic, which i'm also looking forward to playing...

    Forgot to mention - I must say I am not a typical sports game fan myself (NBA Street is about as sport as I get) but the Tony Hawk games are very fun, cheap and have very high replay value.

    Some cheap ones (19.99 or less):

    Outlaw Golf - I know some prefer this over Tiger Woods, it's actually tougher.

    Hunter the Reckoning - Gauntlet-esque shooter.

    Gunvalkyrie - This (along with Envlave) is one of the toughest on XBOX.

    Max Payne - If you haven't played the PC version.

    Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee - I really enjoyed this one, lots of puzzle style platforming.

    Rallipsort Challenge - My favorite racing game on XBOX.

    Burnout - Haven't bought Burnout 2 yet, but the first one is some good arcade style racing.

    Spider-Man - Good game, better than the Hulk.

    Splinter Cell - Not a cheap one yet, but worth whatever you find it for.

    Tony Hawk - I've got 2x,3, and 4...they're all insanely addictive.

    Amped - Tough learning curve, but ultimately more rewarding then Tony Hawk, at least for me.

    Stay Away From:

    Simpsons Road Rage

    Big Mutha Truckers

    State of Emergency

    Wreckless: The Yakuza Missions

    Gunvalkyrie...is this any good though?? tough does not always equal good as Im sure you know...

    is there anything close to gran turismo for the box?? aside from sega gt which is ok but is lacking in the customization of your car
