Gotta work, slight work

I’m getting myself an Xbox 360 tonight.

Dearest eleven followers, which game should I get first? And please don’t offer Skyrim - I don’t want to get that until I finish everything in Oblivion, and I still have a shitload of stuff to do in that game.

Also, I think I’m a little over halfway done with Half-Life: Opposing Force. I don’t really like it as much as Blue Shift - it’s kind of strange and there are a lot of differences that I don’t really like. The facility doesn’t really look the same and nothing else is really as good as it was in the original and in Blue Shift. Also, there’s not really as much plot in it as there was in Blue Shift - I’m pretty sure it’s just about the soldier needing to get back up with the rest of the military. But whatever, it’s still pretty fun. Just not as fun as the other ones.

Anyway, back to the original question: What game (besides Skyrim) should I get for my first Xbox 360 game? I’m leaning towards Mass Effect, Gears 3 (and then borrowing 1 and 2 for the story), or just saying fuck it and getting Modern Warfare 3.
