Windows 10 Review for Dummies
By Ivory_Soul
Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

GameRevolution's Top 25 Xbox 360 Games - 2013 Edition

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

15. Assassin's Creed II

There's no denying that the first Assassin's Creed served as basically a proof of concept for the entire series, offering some unique mechanics, but ultimately suffering from repetitive game design. The sequel delivered on the promise of the original, giving gamers a charming protagonist, loads of variety, and a super-detailed open world that recreated historic Italy. Ezio will go down in history as one of the most likable main characters of all time, and that is an amazing achievement in and of itself. It's no wonder Ubisoft milked the character for two more games.

14. Lost Odyssey

Traditional JRPGs are few and far between this generation, and Mistwalker's Lost Odyssey is undoubtedly the cream of the crop. With a cast of memorable characters, an epic quest that spans multiple discs, and a fun spin on the tried-and-true turn-based battle system, there's plenty to love about this game. The fact that a Japanese role-playing title of this caliber is exclusive to the Xbox 360 elevates it to one of the few treasures exclusive to Microsoft's platform.

13. Halo 4

After a two-game hiatus and the departure of Bungie, the Master Chief made a triumphant return in 343 Industries' Halo 4. With a new developer at the helm, an unlimited budget and a massive loyal fan base, the fourth proper installment was bound to be huge. To everyone's delight, the game turned out to be not only a worthy sequel to Halo 3, but a wonderful step forward for the franchise. With new enemies, weapons, gameplay tweaks and jaw-dropping visuals, Halo 4 is truly a love letter to fans of the series and should absolutely not be missed. 

12. The Orange Box

Valve created one of the greatest compilations of all time with The Orange Box. Not only did the package bring Half-Life 2, its episodic expansions, and Team Fortress 2 to consoles, it also introduced the gaming world to Portal, one of the most innovative and mind-bending experiences this generation. Based on sheer value alone, The Orange Box demands a spot in your game library. If you haven't played Half-Life 2, which is easily one of the best first-person shooters of the last ten years, you can't go wrong with this incredible collection.

11. Mass Effect

Sure, the gameplay mechanics may be a bit flawed, and yes, the Mako is a headache and a half to control, but man, did the original Mass Effect tell one heck of an incredible story. Gamers who really appreciate a quality role-playing experience hold ME1 above its sequels because it offered the player an experience that didn't solely focus on action. Let's also not forget that it introduced the dialogue wheel, which made the game feel much more like an interactive drama—something that was unheard of at the time.
