    Depends on what games you like, Xbox has many solid titles.

    I agree with everything brycetippe said and would have mentioned any of those games, they are pretty good. I played Mass Effect for a while and enjoyed that as well.

    This link has 25 games that are thought of as being solid, check it out if you want.

    Any game made by Valve, particularly Portal/Portal 2

    For 360 exclusive games I really think Alan Wake and the Gears of War series stand out. Then you have your killer third party stand-bys.

    Shooters:
    Farcry 2
    Crysis
    Crysis 2
    Gears of War series
    Left 4 Dead / 2
    Orange Box (Half-Life, Team Fortress, Portal)
    Call of Duty
    Battlefield 2
    Homefront (lol)
    Brink

    Action/Adventure:
    Dead Space series
    GTA IV
    Darksiders
    Bioshock
    Just Cause 2
    Borderlands
    Assassin's Creed (skip the first game)
    Fable series
    Resident Evil 5
    Alan Wake
    Castlevania: Lord of Shadows
    Enslaved
    Mafia II

    RPGs:
    Mass Effect series
    Final Fantasy XIII
    Lost Odyssey
    Tales of Vesperia
    other stuff (RPGs are not my forte anymore)

    I can't recommend good sports/racing games as I'm not a fan of these genres, but you generally can't go wrong with the games I've listed if you're a casual player who just wants a fun/epic game to play.

    I think the top gems of this generation for me were Bioshock, Dead Space and Dead Space 2, Alan Wake, Darksiders, and Portal 2.

    hmmm... I'm trying to decide between 360 or PS3 (slim) - so many solid titles on both - and better still, so many great USED titles for $20/each!

    Im playing Red dead redemption now. Its surprisingly addictive considering how boring most things are that take place in the old west. Fun game you should try if you like action or adventure games

    PS3 has free online play. I wish I had gotten a PS3 now after I wasted the money on my 360 two years ago.
    Live is a much better overall network though.

    As far as which to buy, it really depends on what you're looking for. If you're an avid online gamer, I say 360, no joke. Live has more features than a Swiss army knife, large community, with tons of events. If you however want a true media machine and want the best graphics/performance, go PS3.

    I am starting to use my PS3 more and more lately, and now with my new 3DTV I don't see myself using Xbox for anything other than Rock Band.

    The problem with 360 right now is it seems all the exclusive titles require the Kinect...also ps3=uncharted/folklore/demon solus/ and valkyria chronicles.


    Oh, and HEAVY MOTHERFUCKING RAIN

    Oh my god I keep forgetting about Uncharted 3, but every time I remember it's coming I just kinda melt. That and SWTOR are my top games I'm waiting for.

    Depends on where your tastes are. Look up some PS3 games and some XBox 360 games and see which appeal more to you. Most people at this point would be happier with a PS3 as it has more future and recent games to offer, but if you don't mind playing older games, there are a ton of 360 games that are pretty good and at a low price. You do have to pay a fee to play online for the 360. Unless you're an avid online gamer, this may feel like a rip-off and another needless expense, but if you are a serious online gamer, it'll be worth the price. Also, which console do your friends have? Go with the one that has your best friends playing. If you're looking for a blu-ray player, the PS3 has that as well.

    Gears of War 3 will be coming out next month. What games have you played? There's also going to be MW3, Skyrim, Battlefield 3, RAGE, and some others. There's also alot of other games that have already been released. Halo Reach, Fallout 3 and New Vegas(those will keep you busy for quite awhile), Forza 3, Mass Effect, and alot of others. What kind of games do you play?

    I'm actually VERY tech and game savy (that is, I follow/study the industry)- they're both good platforms, and though more of my friends have 360s, I just prefer the design of the PS3. What sucks is that the latest iteration is not PS2 backward compatible. THAT sucks.

    Most of the games I'd be playing are probably not online-heavy - though I'm curious for sure. I'm actually very happy with my Wii because I love arcady games and Nintendo franchises (Metroid/SSB/Mario). But I love some of the downloadable games I've been scoping out for both PS3 and 360. I dig where indy developers are taking things.

    I'm in no rush though... may even hold out 'til the next gen happens. LOVE the idea of true 3D games... but waiting for technology to mature (no glasses??)

    I second Portal and Portal 2, fun as hell. For first player shooters, Gears of War, which imo is better then COD.

    For the guy who said Skyrim, it is released in November :S
