Default I need game suggestions

Im about to brave the winter storm to purchase a new 360 game as I just finished 2 playthroughs of Prince of Persia. Ive been thinking about Mass Effect. Ive been trying to play games that are outside my usual FPS tastes. i didnt go wrong with Prince of Persia or Dead Space so mass Effect is at the top of my list. Ive never been a fan of any RPG but I also know that its a mix of shooter elements with RPG esque progression. At 20 bucks I really cant go wrong though. Any help would be appreciated.

For good cheap games that aren't FPS or your typical FPS game I'd say:

Dead Rising
Lost Odyssey
Kameo
Lost Planet

Mass Effect is supposed to be good too and is cheap so I'm sure that'd be a good choice too.

Mass Effect
Halo 3
Dead Rising
Viva Pinata
Gears of War
Gears of War 2
Braid (XBLA)
Castle Crashers (XBLA)
Fable 2
Ninja Gaiden 2

You may want to consider GTA4 and Fallout 3 for their upcomming DLC.

Even though its not yet released, you might want to be on the look out for Hawx. Its is a Tom Clancy game and its looking awesome. It revolves around a career as a fighter pilot instead of a soldier and Im personally pretty stoked for it especially since I was denied Ace Combat6 on my ps3.. you should also check out Ace combat 6, I played it on the 360 and thought it was awesome. Its also gotta be pretty cheap by now. You probably wont regret picking up Mass Effect either.

I am trying to pick up Spiderman Web of Shadows.

Everyone has been telling me it's the best Spiderman game they have ever played (even way better than Spiderman 2)

Viva Pinata (1st one) is probably like $5 by now.

Banjo Kazooie 3 is $40 new (probably $30 or less used)

Star Wars: FU

Skate 1 is cheap

Darkness is cheap as hell

Dark Sector was a game that I liked (bad online though). If you could get it for cheap it would be worth playing.
