The 20 best games on Xbox 360

Postby youareme » 09 Apr 2012, 13:44

Sorry to be a bit pedantic but there are two errors. (that I've noticed at-least)
First: No single game in the Orange Box is older than 8 years old, the oldest (HL2) came out in Nov 2004 making it 7 and a half years old. Second: GTA 4 came out in 2008, not 2007. Not that important but a little annoying.

As for the list, Halo 3 is far better than Reach, brilliant campaign, more balanced online and a much better graphical style.
The lack of Lost Odyssey or PGR 3 is also disappointing.

The lack of Lost Odyssey makes the whole list moot. This is just a list of big multiplatform games which your average Joe will have heard of. PS3 list is pretty much copy and paste of this too, with a couple of 1st party titles to mix it up. Both fail

Take Orange Box out of there and replace with Black Ops and I'm about in agreement (except for the order though)

Totally disagree about Halo 3 being better than Reach, and Reach's graphics were much better! Especially where jaggies are concerned. I thought Halo 3 was rather unbearable to play because of how bad the jaggies were. Also I thought Reach was my 3rd Favourite 360 exclusive as the campaign was amazing, although the mulitplayer was rather terrible, it was a massive step down to Halo 3.

You're joking, right? This list already has MW1, no need to list the same game twice.

I thought we were past this myth? I'd agree with Kk-Headcharge.

Fair enough, but I didn't mean the overall tech (Reach is one of the best looking games on 360) but rather I preferred the more colouriful looking 3, as I felt Reach was a bit grey.

Off topic, but any plans to add the comments to the mobile site any time soon? Also, any reason why I keep signing out when on 3G?

Anyway, list is reasonably good. Reach was better than 3, but it was one Chief short of utter greatness. But the lack of either PGR is unforgivable! When are Microsoft going to do something about that, anyway? A new PGR for the new Xbox or is Forza Horizons meant to fill that void?

BAYONETTA.

It's basically a 360 exclusive, what's more.

Battlefield 3?
Reach over Halo 3 or ODST?

Absolutely disgraceful article, the author clearly has little to zero knowledge of the 360's library. Complete utter shambles.

Why are there so many multi-platform games on this list??

I was expecting 20 best xbox exclusives!!!

Some of these multi-platform titles are not the best on this particular platform as they are better on other platforms (BF3 for example is better on PC) Surely a list like this should be Xbox Exclusives only.

I can't understand why Fable, Alan Wake, lots of Kinect and xbla exclusives etc. are not included - There are plenty of exclusive titles to be able to compile a list of the top 20 xbox only exclusives.
As Confucius said 'Man who keeps hands in pockets feels Cocky all day'... ;-)
