Best Xbox 360 Exclusive 2011

Gears of War 3


Platform: Xbox 360

Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios

Developer: Epic Games

The final part of any successful trilogy is almost always impossible to deny. It is the epic finale of the COG's journey through the pale, dilapidated dystopia where the answer to every problem usually involves a chainsaw. Here, we expect to mourn the deaths of our comrades, though we many not want to, but we also celebrate their victory (finally) over the Locust. Beneath the manly war cries and muscle-bound testosterone, Gears of War 3 treats each of its protagonists as more than just cliché soldiers, though they may seem and act that way at first.

Gears of War 3 considerably improves on the speed and cover mechanics of its predecessors as well as its iconic Horde Mode, all while introducing Team Deathmatch and Beast Mode. Epic Games also keeps the multiplayer community satisfied with patches and updates that have so far added a spectator mode option for private versus matches, allowed for disabling HUD elements, and fixed several exploits. All the other nominees were worthy as well, and I suppose you want me to say that I've always loved them. But I don't. I really, really don't.
