Well?

I only included games that are for sure going to make launch, so no DOA 4 or Oblivion or Ghost Recon.

I've seen Amped 3 on some launch lists, but not others. If that doesn't make it out for release day, PGR3 is my second choice. Most Wanted is also high on the list.

PGR3 is the only thing I care about.  Among other things, it's one of only 4 titles that can't be played elsewhere.  That and I really enjoyed PGR2.  PGR3 over Live will be great when the shortages are over and we can all play together.

I'm voting for Condemned primarily based on the premise and Monolith's track record.  I love platformers so Kameo certainly has some potential too but Rare hasn't been in top form since the N64.  The same applies for PDZ.

Man, if there were ever a poll that needed a "SH!T BONERZ" option, it'd be this one.

Which is to say, the launch games all look boring now that Oblivion got pushed back.

Or maybe just a "Troll" or "derail" button would do just fine.

I'm a rare fanboy so I went with Kameo, but where's Call Of Duty 2?  I know a lot of people are looking forward to that one.

Isn't that a foregone conclusion when it comes to LE?

All I meant was, alot of my 360 interest was riding on Oblivion.

Perfect Dark Zero looks like it could be OK, but the original PD was grossly overrated, so I dunno.

Racing games -- bleh.  They're the easiest to program, it's why every launch has a bevy of them.  Most launch Racers are forgotten a few scant months after release.

Quake 4, Call of Duty 2, GUN:  I'd buy them on PC if I wanted them.  Mouse aiming FTW.

Sport games -- never had any interest in them.

Kameo -- has some potential but an offbeat launch title is rarely a good launch title.

Condemned -- probably the most appealing to me out of the bunch, but certainly not enough to buy a system over.

I can see your point.  I mean, basically, Kameo and Condemned are the only two original games on the list.  Everything else is a sequel or out for other systems.  Good thing I want Kameo!

2 new reviews from 1up - NBA 2k6 and Amped 3 - both got the score of 7.0.  Reviewer says that both don't take advantage of next-gen.  

AMPED 3 IS NOT PLAYABLE OVER LIVE!?!?!?!?  Wow, no sale, no sale, no sale.  How retarded is that?

I am looking forward to Laughing Out Loud.  It is a launch title that has been kept super secret.  It is a point-and-click adventure game with hyper-realistic features such as over caffinated gamers, getting up early, waiting in line, being told you cannot get your pre-order and making death threats at major corporation.  Laughing Out Loud will be coming to a message board near you on November 22.

1UP had an article yesterday talking about NBA2k6 vs NBA Live. They said that Live was a much better next-gen game and took advantage of the system much more than 2k6 which just recycled the old engine. After reading that, I kind of expected 2k6 to get a low score.

Still Oblivion for me, which is why I don't mind the shortages at the moment.  I kind of agree with Lord Ebonstone now.  Any of the FPS games I can get on the PC, or even some of the sports games.  The racing games that are shipping are all fairly shallow, at least to me, I prefer Forza type racing games.

There are a lot of pretty good games coming out, but nothing spectacular to me.  Kameo looks fun, but I'm not huge into adventure games.  I think if my 360 came right away, I'd be inclined to sell it.

Down the road, what else besides Oblivion is coming for the 360?  Looks like a pretty good game drought for a while.

I was Amped until I read the 1up review. No Live?? No buy.. (rental only).
I put down PGR3, I won't truly decide until gameday.

I prefer 'Crushed Dreams' by Dreamcatcher.  Sure, it's along the same lines as LOL but features an interactive online component where you can pwn your opponnents dreams online.
