For me I recommend Blur if your into racing games with power ups, not random like Mario Kart power ups either. BUT I only recommend it for the online experience. there is so much randomness and good races to be had there. Also wait for Fable 3, Fable 2 is good but it disappointed me more than once, and 3 is looking to shape up nicely. GTA IV is pretty good, nothing like going around shooting random people and stealing cars, and the story isn't half bad. And if you are into Guitar Hero or Rock Band get them. So much DLC to be gotten in RB and GH is pretty much the standard I suppose, though I prefer Rock Band.
