5. Gears of War 3
The trilogy-capper to Marcus Fenix's battle against the Locust ended with an intense and emotional conclusion that will forever be remembered as the high point of the franchise. But it wasn't just the campaign that saw major improvements, the multiplayer was bigger and more ambitious than ever. From the suite of beloved competitive game types to the more unique Horde and Beast modes, there's so much content packed into this glorious game. The fact that this is easily one of the most gorgeous Xbox 360 games doesn't hurt, either.
4. Halo: Reach
Bungie's final Halo game didn't make it this high on this list because of its multiplayer alone. The campaign of Halo: Reach was not just a beautifully told prequel—it was a serious and dire take on the events that lead up to the epic beginning of the series that started with Combat Evolved. In the game you play as Nobel Six, a strong, silent hero who's accompanied by a group of fellow Spartans tasked with the impossible mission of saving the planet Reach from a Covenant invasion. Despite the fact that we all know the crew is doomed from the start, there are plenty of surprises along the way, many of which are downright heart-wrenching. And then there's that ending. Don't even get me started on that ending.
3. Red Dead Redemption
Who would have thought that a sandbox western could possibly be so amazing? When the makers of Grand Theft Auto took over the Red Dead franchise, many doubted whether or not they could pull it off—but to everyone's delight, they totally did. As with any Rockstar game, there are plenty of memorable characters to be found in Redemption. Plus, the world is great and there's just so much to do—from playing poker to taming horses. And then there's that ending. Oh man, that ending.
