    I just go my Droid and love it. But with 100K apps I need help. What are the must have apps? What fun games are there. What gadgets are cool. What do I need/

    There are entire sections of this forum you could browse through to answer these questions and several "best programs" threads already. Why don't you start with those then come back with specific questions when you have them?

    Try:

    Android Mate (file explorer/app installer. Trust me, you need a file explorer)
    Shopper (Google's barcode-scanning/image/product search app)
    Gesture Search (indispensable! Lets you search your contacts, apps, music, etc by writing letters onto your screen)

    If you'd like to beautify your homescreens a bit, most people like Pure Music Widget, Pure Calendar Widget, and Beautiful Widgets. They're paid apps, though.

    Google is your best friend. Start with "android apps". Page after page of essential, best, top.. from users, blogs and publications. Then do your homework.

    I've only had my Droid three weeks, but have found a few that have become essential (or too much fun):

    A Online Radio - I'm a casual listener, this works for me.
    Aldiko - epub book reader
    Apps Organizer - Nice little widget for application folders
    Astro - must have, file & system manager
    Barcode Scanner
    Dolphin Browser - pinch & zoom, worth trying
    Google Earth
    FCC Test - 3G speed test
    Google Goggles
    Layar - Interesting
    Meridian - media player, nothing special but I like the interface better
    Flixter - Nice movie finder
    NPR - National Public Radio, programs and stream stations.
    PdaNet - tether your notebook
    Qik - live stream video from your phone
    Ringdroid -must have, create ringtones from any Mp3
    Screen mode - silly little widget with 3 toggles, normal, unlock, stay-on
    Setting Profiles - create and toggle/autmate profiles. A powerful work-in-progess.
    Shazam - let it listen to a tune and get the info.
    Smart Monitor - I just like knowing what's going on under the hood.
    Swype - amazing keyboard replacement. In beta, sign up and hope.
    Ultrachron - nice stopwatch/countdown timer. There are many out there...
    Voice recorder - works for my needs.
    WiFinder - WiFi hotspot finder

    Until you like something better, mount the power control widget to turn stuff on and off.

    Accesories? I love the seidio case myself. Since cases interfere with docks, I also like the seidio dock and car mount.

    Definitely read the apps forum or any of the countless other "What apps should I get?" threads. Suggestions aren't going to be relevant to you unless you at least indicate what you're looking for. "Must have" is always very subjective.
