Xbox game reccomendations?

Okay, I love video games, but for the past few years I haven't owned any game systems myself. I always play them at my friend's places. Recently they bought a 360, so they're being extremely generous and just giving me their regular Xbox for free. Great friends, I tell ya!

Anyway, i'm trying to figure out some games I should get. I know i'm getting "Dreamfall: The Longest Journey", because I played half of the game already and I absolutely loved it. I really enjoy it because it feels like a movie with a really interesting story. I also love all the Resident Evil games (not for Xbox, I know), and the Silent Hill games. So, I like Survival Horror, and also role playing stuff like Dreamfall (King's Quest 6 was a favorite of mine as a kid).

Based on that info, what games for Xbox do you think I might enjoy?

You would probaly like Fable, it's pretty cheap now that it's been out for a while and is IMO the best RPG type game that's available on XBOX, Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 4 are also on XBOX.

The greatest game ever to be produced for the xbox is Unreal Championship 2.

Games are cheap, especially used. Why limit yourself to two genres? You'd be missing a lot of great games.

With that I give you(not in any order):

1. Chronicles of Riddick
2. Prince of Persia
3. Beyond Good & Evil
4. Lego Star Wars
5. Burnout Revenge
6. Halo/Halo 2
7. Project Gotham Racing
8. Knights of the Old Republic
9. GTA series
10. Ninja Gaiden

Might as well give you my usual list of recommendations. I was looking for the "best" games on the system to catch up when I got my system recently:

FPS:
1) Halo + Halo 2
2) Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory (more strategy based TPS)
3) TimeSplitters

RPG:
4) Fable
5) Jade Empire
6) Morrowind: GOTY Edition
7) Star Wars: KOTOR I + II

Racing:
8) Burnout 3

Sports:
9) MVP Baseball 2005
10) ESPN NFL 2k5

Other:
11) Lego Star Wars I & II
12) GTA: San Andreas
13) Ninja Gaiden Black
14) X-Men Legends I

Those all come pretty much recommended from me, and nearly all are $20 or less.
