I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

GameRevolution's Top 25 Xbox 360 Games - 2013 Edition

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


10. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

If you have even the slightest affinity toward fantasy role-playing games, you'd be a fool for passing on Bethesda's fifth proper entry in The Elder Scrolls franchise. With a vast, open world that will take you over a hundred hours to explore, there's so much content crammed into every inch of Skyrim. Sure, it may destroy your social life, but it's a small price to pay when considering all the wonderful role-playing goodness that this game offers. Seriously, it has dragons. DRAGONS!



9. Halo 3

Master Chief's triumphant debut on the Xbox 360 was nothing short of epic. The jump to HD made Bungie's sci-fi world easier on the eyes, and the advancements in Xbox Live made it the ultimate community-driven online shooter at the time. Halo 3 also brought with it two new modes: Forge and Theater, which have gone on to become staples within the series. There was a lot of expectation and hype behind this title and when it launched, it solidified its place as Microsoft's flagship franchise.



8. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

For the longest time, World War II shooters dominated the gaming market—and then came Call of Duty 4, which brought the military FPS genre to the modern era. With production values that were unrivaled at the time and a roller-coaster campaign that played like a summer blockbuster, there is much to love about Modern Warfare's linear but super cinematic approach to game design. Since its launch we've seen the franchise soar to ridiculous levels of popularity, and it's all thanks to Infinity Ward's incredible work on this game. Plus, I'm sure that ghillie suit mission will forever be etched in your mind like it is in mine.



7. Fallout 3

When we first heard that Bethesda was redefining the way we play Fallout by turning the franchise into a first-person open-world RPG, nearly every gamer on the planet was extremely skeptical. Could Fallout 3 truly serve up a compelling post-apocalyptic world that players would feel inclined to explore? How could a radioactive wasteland not get redundant and boring? Somehow, the dev team managed to pull it off, taking what many love about The Elder Scrolls series and embedding it within the Fallout universe. Oh yeah, and the V.A.T.S. system is downright incredible.



6. Grand Theft Auto V

Talk about pushing aging hardware to its limits. Rockstar Games accomplished a technical feat by building a fully-realized take on Los Angeles and getting it to run on eight-year-old hardware. With a gargantuan map to explore, countless activities to get lost in, and a revolutionary three-protagonist system that allows you to swap between characters on the fly, GTA V is more than just an amazing gameit's a crowning achievement in game design.
