I'm getting an XBOX!

YEAH! I made a trade (with the help of my brother) to get an XBOX and extra controller for my old Saturn and 26 games! I am very excited, but I got to thinking, what should I buy first? I know Halo is a must have but what is a good game for a guy who plans to go on Live within the month but would like a game with good single player to use now?

Splinter Cell.

Edit: Missed the Live part. Pretty sure Splinter Cell is not live, but is a must buy for the system.

Splinter Cell is probably my all time favorite game. I can't help it, I just love that game. It will get new levels soon from xbox live also, but it isn't multiplayer.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is another amazing game. I love the show so perhaps I am biased but this game is truly fun.

Spiderman was fun on the PS2 so I know it would be great on Xbox. I also have Mortal Kombat: DA on PS2 and it is fun, so I could suggest that one too.

Ghost Recon is another amazing game. Very fun in single player and there is a ton of stuff to unlock. It is a Live game too and it is very fun with co-op and other modes.

Thrillhouse-
what games did you had to part from the sega saturn?

Halo.
Splinter Cell.

Do you like racing games?
Project Gotham Racing is good and can be found for less than 30 dollars.

Do you like sports games?
NFL2k3 is 30 dollars, but I got it yesterday for 20(there was a sale at CC).

I haven't played Metal Gear Solid, but it's single-player, and I don't remember hearing it was terrible.

None of those actually, but I will miss Nights and Fighters Mega mix.
