RIP Robin Williams (1951-2014)

Robin Williams (1951-2014) Robin Williams was an absolutely exceptional comedian, talented actor, and holder of a special place in video game history: He was the first really famous gamer I know of. I’m sure there were others, but they kept a comparatively low profile, unlike one...

GameRevolution's Top 25 Xbox 360 Games - 2013 Edition

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


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 prequelit 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.



2. Mass Effect 2


There aren't many games that sport a cast quite as massive as Mass Effect 2. BioWare's sci-fi sequel provided an incredible character-driven experience that refined its predecessor's gameplay mechanics, making it not only a joy to experience, but also an absolute blast to play. It was also the first time players got a chance to see how the decisions they made in the prior title carry over from their save file and influence the overall story. If you own an Xbox 360 and haven't experienced the Mass Effect series, you're missing on a saga that is truly great.



1. BioShock

Irrational Games' BioShock tells the story of a stranded individual trapped within a freakishly twisted underwater city. It's completely horrifying, yet eerily intriguing at the same time. The level of detail around every corner is downright astonishing and speaks volumes about the team's developing prowess. The various Big Daddies that stomp through the halls and the creepily adorable Little Sisters that hang by their side perfectly meld within the universe and add a nice wrinkle to the gameplay. If that weren't enough, the astounding plot twist that precedes the game's conclusion is one of the most memorable moments in gaming.
