RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014)

RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

GameRevolution's Top 25 Xbox 360 Games

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



10. Braid


Jonathan Blow's puzzle platformer will go down in history as one of the greatest indie games of this generation. Not only are the puzzles incredibly deep and complex, they are seamlessly woven into the game's platforming elements. Better yet, the game boasts an intriguing narrative that is extremely clever. In an industry where visuals are so important, Braid proves that a game doesn't need to be graphical showpiece to be engaging.



9. 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, really elevates it as one of the few treasures exclusive to Microsoft's platform.



8. Mass Effect 3

While BioWare's trilogy capper will forever be marred by its controversial ending, there's no denying the fact that this is one heck of an amazing role-playing experience. Seeing how all of your choices affect not only the slew of characters you come in contact with, but also crucial plot points that change the flow of the game, is downright astounding. BioWare was given the impossible task of creating a satisfying conclusion that had to live up to the lofty expectations of so many gamers, and in many respects, they succeeded with Mass Effect 3.

 

7. Portal 2

I hardly consider myself a fan of puzzle games, but Valve's Portal 2 managed to win me over like few games have. Not only are the puzzles absolutely brilliant, the game bleeds charm thanks to its excellent writing. The original Portal felt a lot like a tech demo, but the sequel takes that foundation and transforms it into one of the most engaging and memorable experiences you'll have this generation. And don't even get me started on the co-op…



6. 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.
