What are the best 3 games for the XBOX 360?

I'm on a mission...  I want to know what the best games are for the Microsoft XBOX 360, Sony PS/3, and Nintendo Wii.  I'm trying to get a feel for which of these systems I should buy.

So, make some game recommendations!  What are the best 3 games the XBOX has to offer?

COD4,Rainbow Six Vegas 1 & 2, and well I suppose Halo 3 but the original Halo made more sense and the play was perfect even without online.

Call of Duty 4 is set in the modern era, not WW2 (why it's called COD4: Modern Warfare). You're referring to Call of Duty 2 and 3. You are right that COD4 is a great game though. Lots of fun, and the multiplayer will bring a lot of fun if you're hooked in to XBOX Live. Gears of War is another awesome game that I'd recommend.

To get off shooters for a moment, I'd also take a look Assasin's Creed, GTA4 (coming this month), Elder Scrolls 4 Oblivion, and Lego Star Wars I and II.

Anyone else have some good suggestions?

You need to try assasins

You need to try assasins creed i have been playing it for a month, only thing no online play. Gears of war is very good the online play is ex.  Halo 3 is also good and online play is the same as halo 2 just jazed up graphics. Bioshock is a good game but also no online play.  good luck

Halo 3 if you can handle the

Halo 3 if you can handle the annoying flawed online gameplay. A must have in my opinion is Call of Duty 4 (and to Kako 56 CoD4 is not WW2 based it's present, hence all the weapons except for one the MP44 a WW2 gun.) Assasin's creed could keep you entertained for awhile, but for long term no cause theres no online play, maybe scoop up GRID the new racing game that is if you're into realistic racing, if not get Gran Turismo 5 the cars bounce off of eachother like bouncy balls xD. Yeah I am getting a 360 next week, and I have the money for one game and that is Call of Duty 4 :D

For me, the must-haves are:

For me, the must-haves are:

The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion (one of the best open ended RPG's ever)
Assassin's Creed (graphics are amazing, gameplay is immersive)
BioShock (best single player shooter I've played since Doom 3)
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (excellent online play)
Viva Pinata (silly and addictive, easy to play and fun)

And games I haven't played, but have heard are fantastic:

Grand Theft Auto IV
Lego Star Wars

I will admit that my XBOX 360 experiences are limited right now, and I don't own many games for that particular system, but I had to chime in :)
