Default Game suggestions

I use to be a big time gamer, but have since stopped playing as much. Blame that on work and movies. For some reason though I have all three systems.

I'm hoping to get back into gaming and would like help choosing a good game. I was thinking of getting Mercenaries 2, before I read the review. I am now thing about getting Saint's Row 2 and/or the new Call of Duty when it comes out.

Any suggestions?

Well, to name a few:

Uncharted - great single player experience
Little Big Planet - as Visions said, an amazing game with fun 4-player online or offline coop
Resistance 2 - The beta is fun as hell with 60 player online battles, 8-player online coop

360 - Just going off hype here since I don't have a 360
Gears 2
Left 4 Dead
Fable 2

Far Cry 2
Fallout 3
Dead Space

I'd buy all these if I had the time and money.

Littlebigplanet is definitely worth looking into. In terms of games like you mention - I would look to FarCry2 as it is open world (50Km2 +) and is a nice FPS. Reviews really haven't been out much on it, but what has been said is positive.
COD5 is likely going to be pretty awesome too - and then there's Fallout and Fable for the guys who like collecting loot and levelling up...Resistance 2 and Gears of War2 for shooter sequel action too.. man - too much to think about..

I'd leave mercs2 personally, same with saints row2 - there are a tonne of quality games coming out in the next few months, save the 2nd tier stuff like mercs and Pure for a dry spell when no games are out.

Call of Duty 4
Nothing on the Wii
Farcry 2
Burnout Paradise
WIPEOUT HD (Currently I can't get enough of this game)
