Can anyone recommend older games that are still good that I can pick up at a bargain? GTA is a no brainer for me, but I want to know what games I should start with. What COD game should be first and what are the really good zombie games?

If you never played mass effect 1, play it.

Also Alan Wake, Gears games, Halo games are all worth the low cost there going for now.

Also zombie games = dead rising 1 and 2

Any Halo, including the first one.
Dead Rising(Zombie Game)
Gears of War
Red Dead Redemption
Alan Wake
Crackdown
Bioshock
Mass Effect 1 & 2
COD Black Ops is the hot COD game right now

You can pick up some of these games for under $15 now.
Also, it depends on what type of game you want to play. Many people hate Fallout because it is so slow and involved. I myself love it. Same with Mass Effect. A very long and talky type game but the payoff is extraordinary.

Left 4 Dead is a popular zombie FPS. No campaign to speak of, but it is/was primarily online.

Resident Evil 5 was alright. Not really zombies, but similar type enemies. Game itself wasn't great comapres to 4 and 2.

If you like racing, Forza 3 is about $15 new at Amazon and Project Gotham 4 is under $10 on eBay.

Thanks for the suggestions. I understand Arkham Asylum is fairly bad ass too and with it's sequel coming out it should be fairly affordable. Does anyone have and recs for good Kindle games?

Vanquish. I'm also fairly new to Xbox, so these suggestions are helping me too. Although I didn't really get in to Mass Effect. Not in the mood for an RPGish game right now.

Yes of course Vanquish. This game is delightful.

Alan wake is one of my favorite 360 games. I was expecting a Resident Evil style game but it was more of a scary atmospheric mindfuck with some awesome parts.
Fallout 3
Mass Effect
If you like either of those you also have a couple sequels to look forward too. I am about 30 hours into mass effect and its fun as hell.

I gotta go back and play Alan Wake. I got it with my Xbox and it was the first game I popped in. I have a feeling I'd appreciate it more now. One hell of a scary game, though, and very original.

I still haven't beaten the addon "The Signal".
I forgot about Half Life Orange Box .

I picked up MAG from gamestop today for 16.99, its not the greatest first person shooter, but when you get into a battle with 255 other people as opposed to 31 for COD's, its pretty cool.
