MGS Rising

Hideo Kojima's sword-based Metal Gear action game was shown briefly, with a heck of a lot of slicing to pieces and a requisite fruit-slicing mode. While it seemed at first like this might be a Kinect demo, this does seem like the most polished and unique game in the lineup. Release date: unknown.

Halo: Reach

Already known to a host of beta players, Halo: Reach is more of a true fourth game in the Halo series than the short side-story that was ODST. Its expansive environments have a more epic feel than ODST, based on what we've seen. It arrives in September.

Fable III

Fable 3, coming October 26, is yet another of Microsoft's cornerstone franchises. The sequel is set five years after Fable 2, and appears to have a more mature adventure feel.

Gears of War 3

Gears of War 3 is the last in the 360 trilogy, with a similar-feeling look and style. Lots of monsters seemed to be the focus, along with a "beast mode" that was promised.
