I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

GameRevolution's Top 25 Xbox 360 Games - 2013 Edition

Posted on Friday, December 27 @ 12:00:00 Eastern by GR_Staff



There's no denying it: The Xbox 360 boasts a massive and diverse game library of incredible games. As we plunge forward into the next generation of gaming with Xbox One, we can't help but look back on the last eight years of Xbox 360 with so many fond memories. As such, the GR staff decided to put their heads together to compose a list that highlights our top 25 games that have come to the console.

25. Rock Band 3

The music-rhythm genre was taken to new heights during this past generation, and the Rock Band series is responsible for making that happen. Harmonix took the lessons they learned from developing Guitar Hero to craft a musical experience that incorporated a whole host of instruments—and it worked! The third installment in the series refined everything the team created, offering an insane amount of tracks and some of the most memorable local multiplayer experiences of the entire generation.



24. The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings - Enhanced Edition

CD Projekt's sequel to The Witcher was a graphical showpiece for the PC, so when it was announced for the Xbox 360, there was an understandable level of concern regarding how the game might run. Fortunately the dev team is a crafty bunch of guys, as The Witcher 2 looks absolutely stunning on Microsoft's gaming machine. But visuals aside, this game is easily one of the deepest, most thought-provoking RPGs to come along in years. If you're looking for a deep, mature story, full of political intrigue that is coupled nicely with incredible (and challenging) gameplay, you'll find one of the most epic experiences in The Witcher 2.



23. Dark Souls

While Xbox-exclusive gamers missed out on FromSoftware's brutally punishing Demon's Souls, its spiritual successor brought the painfully difficult experience to the Xbox 360. This sword-slinging action game certainly isn't for everyone, but if you appreciate the tough-as-nails difficulty that defined the retro gaming era, you'll feel right at home with Dark Souls. You'll die a lot, retread the same path for hours at a time, and find the sudden urge to smash your controller on the floor—but hey, that's all part of the fun, right?



22. Braid


Jonathan Blow's puzzle platformer will go down in history as one of the greatest indie games of this generation. Not only are the puzzles incredibly deep and complex, they are seamlessly woven into the game's platforming elements. Better yet, the game boasts an intriguing narrative that is extremely clever. In an industry where visuals are so important, Braid proves that a game doesn't need to be technical graphical showpiece to be engaging.



21. Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Ever wished you could play a modernized version of Metal Gear Solid in first-person perspective? Look no further, as Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the game you so desperately crave. Stealth action has never felt so immersive and fun; however, the real draw comes from role-playing elements that have been embedded within the experience. Set in a future riddled with biomechanical augmentations, the game's protagonist Adam Jensen is able to enhance his abilities through an RPG-like progression system. It's incredibly rewarding and—more importantly—an absolute blast to play.
