When the original XBox was first released, many grew skeptical about Microsoft’s ability to succeed in the world of video games; and in 2005, the XBox 360 took the gaming world by storm as it saw some of the best games ever made and became one of the top- selling consoles of all time.
Narrowing down eight years worth of game releases to the top 10 is definitely not an easy feat. So, we’ve chosen 10 of the most exciting, fun and simply awesome games that you can ever play. Here is the list of the Top 10 XBox 360 Games:
- The Elders Scrolls V: Skyrim
If we’re talking about size, then Skyrim can conquer it all. Once you get the point of it, it will be easy for you to get lost in this huge role- playing game. Spend hundreds of hours going on an adventure, crafting, hunting, exploring and dungeon diving. The main story is good enough but the story that you create in this world is the real success. Find yourself completely absorbed as you inspect every nook and cranny trying to uncover the secrets hidden inside the game.
This first person shooter dashed with horror may not seem like much but hidden under the surface, Bioshock offers so much more than that. Dive into the world of science fiction and mystery that feels so real you’ll get sucked in immediately. Bioshock has that futuristic yet retro feel and the elements in the game go so well together, and form a mysterious world that will keep you from sleep until you’ve figured out what is happening in the dark undersea utopian city of Rapture.
- Batman: Arkham City
Batman is not just for movies and comics anymore. Who knew that he would do great in a video game? The sequel that is brimming with action, Batman: Arkham City is on the same footing as its predecessor. Navigate your way in Gotham City and stumble into the many quests, challenges and secrets along the way. This is the ultimate chance to experience a day in the life of the famous character as you fight your way through a line of the cruelest villains that ever existed.
- Portal 2
The smarter and wittier successor of the student- project- based game Portal, Portal 2 promises an array of tasks that will test you but surprisingly won’t annoy you. A puzzle game that’s hidden under a blanket of dark comedy, this minimalistic game packs a witty dialogue that surely makes it stand out.
- The Walking Dead: The Game
Much like the beloved series from which the game was based on, The Walking Dead: The Game will hit you with an emotional bat right in the face. Playing as the convicted felon Lee, your overarching task is to protect an orphaned girl named Clementine as you try to survive in the apocalyptic post- zombie world. There are many horrors that would need to be endured in this powerfully moving game.

Other multiplayer games bow down to this addictive music video game wherein, together with thousands of downloadable songs in the music store, you and your friends can have endless fun playing a rock band.
- Halo 4
Halo 4 is pretty much everything that a video game should be: truly marvelous graphics, top- notch first- person shooter gameplay, crystal clear audio and sound design and an unmatched presence in the gaming industry. Even though many games have tried to take a leaf out of the Halo equation, nothing seems to go up to par with its incredibly satisfactory package.
- Mass Effect Trilogy
It’s hard not to include all of the three parts in the Mass Effect Trilogy. The trilogy must seem a lot but having all the three Mass Effect parts is a decision you won’t regret. In a total of 100 hours you will get to experience things that you won’t forget. The best thing about this is that each part has something special that’s not found in the other two. It’s definitely a galactic adventure that you won’t want to miss.
