Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

GameRevolution's Top 25 Xbox 360 Games

Posted on Thursday, December 27 @ 11:16:21 Eastern by Alex_Osborn



15. Assassin's Creed III


After a whopping three games with Ezio, the Assassin's Creed franchise was starting to lose some of its allure. Fortunately, Ubisoft managed to turn things around with the third proper installment by taking players to the time of the American Revolution. Not only was the setting a nice breath of fresh air, but getting the chance to play as a brand-new hatchet wielding protagonist was downright awesome. From the inclusion of naval battles to hunting and tree traversal, Assassin's Creed III took the franchise in bold new directions while managing to wrap up the story of Desmond. Ubisoft spent boatloads of time, money and effort into making this the most incredible Assassin's Creed experience yet, and they undoubtedly succeeded. If you told me last year that come 2013 I'd be ready for yet another AC, I wouldn't have believed you, but as we approach the new year, my mouth is already watering.



14. 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.



13. Grand Theft Auto IV

Rockstar's first post-PS2 era Grand Theft Auto title has proven to be one of the most polarizing entires in the franchise. With a much more serious and realistic approach to storytelling and game design, GTA IV mixed things up for the franchise in a plethora of ways. Even if you prefer the craziness of San Andreas or Vice City, you have to commend Rockstar for what they achieved with this game. Exploring Liberty City's open world for the first time was downright breathtaking and causing mayhem continues to be a fun time waster.  And let's not forget about the stellar cast of characters thanks to some incredible writing and voice acting. Honestly, will you ever be able to forget characters like Roman and Brucie?



12. 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!



11. 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.
