PGR 3 is a good-un. I also like DOA.

Call of Duty 2
Dead Rising
Saints Row
Test Drive Unlimited

Some of these may not actually be in the range but they can certainly be had for the same prices.

Test Drive Unlimited.

Does tooling round a REALLY faithfully recreated Hawaii, buying cars and house, entering races and doing time trials on the real roads appeal in any way?

If so, buy it. NOW. I can spend considerable time just driving round the island (or riding a Kawasaki) but the core game is good too.

Other than that PGR3, Dead Rising, Ridge Racer 6,Oblivion, Crackdown and Tomb Raider : Legend are all good examples of their respective genres.

Oblivion is a truly majestic title. I wasn't a PC gamer back when Daggerfall and Arena was released, but I bought Morrowind and I fell in love with it. I loved the free nature of it! I bought Oblivion on the X360 and spent an enormous amount of time on it, then I bought the PC version - but once again I realized that I don't really like playing games on the PC.

Now just recently I got Oblivion for the PS3, and have once again fallen into the fantastic world of Cyradiil.

And yes, I enjoyed Test Drive Unlimited as well, but unfortunately I was severely disappointed with the online mode. It wasn't an mmo racing game at all, it was basically the same as any other free-roaming racers, but with option to play online. Lag was also a serious issue with the game when I played it.

I don't have Gold anymore, since I don't see the reason to pay for a service that I'm offered free on either the PC or PS3. But for those who do have Gold, TDU is a great game, if they've fixed the severe lagging issues.

You won't find a game online now anyway unless you organise it with friends. I keep meaning to do so with you guys and WOS just in an attempt to mop up an achievement or two.

Whilst not in the classic range Amped 3 can be picked up for around 10 to 15 quid, so far it's the game I've spent most time on on the 360.

I just bought my Xbox 360 a few days ago, and instantly went for Dead Rising. It's a great game, one that made me bought the Xbox, even though I swore I'd never buy a Microsoft console...
Saints Row should be good too, this'll probably be my next buy.

Kameo is a great game if a little short.

Go to www.uk.gamestracker.co.uk to find the cheapest prices for games. I've found some MAJOR bargains using that site.
