GameRevolution's Top 25 Xbox 360 Games

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



5. 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.



4. 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 gametypes 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.



3. Mass Effect

Sure, the gameplay mechanics may be a bit flawed, and yes, the Mako is a headache and a half to control, but man did the original Mass Effect tell one heck of an incredible story. Gamers who really appreciate a quality role-playing experience hold ME1 above its sequels because it offered the player an experience that didn't solely focus on action. Let's also not forget that it introduced the dialogue wheel, which made the game feel much more like an interactive drama; something that was unheard of at the time. 



2. 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.



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.
