New to the Xbox 360: what are the must have games for the console?

Particularly, the exclusives, but it's fine to mention any multiplatform titles.

I am thinking about buying a 360 sometime in the near future, and I know there are some gems on the system that I missed out on.

I must note that I strictly play single player, and I have no interest in online multiplayer gaming. I prefer single player campaigns and storylines offline, and I am a huge fan of either Western or Japanese RPGs, but I generally play games from all different genres.

Halo, Gears of War, Forza Motorsport.

For Halo, check out:

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary (Remake of the first Halo game)
Halo 2 (Original Xbox, backwards compatible for the 360, about $20 new on Amazon)
Halo 3
Halo 3: ODST
Halo Reach
Halo 4

If you like RTS, Halo Wars is something to check out as well.

I would also suggest Splinter Cell: Conviction, perhaps. The SC series are stealth-action. If you haven't checked out the series before, all the games are backwards compatible (Splinter Cell, Pandora Tomorrow, Chaos Theory). The latest is Blacklist, it's definitely worth checking out if you haven't.

Dunno about exclusives but so far I've enjoyed:

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
Gunslinger: Call of Juarez
Catherine
Halo Reach

Those are the ones I've liked enough to finish so far.

Good recommendations so far. I have another question, though.

If I already have the Mass Effect Trilogy for the PS3, should I even bother buying the games for the 360? I bought the trilogy a few months ago, and I still haven't had the chance to play it, so I don't know how these games perform on the PS3.

They are the same in Xbox 360.
