Best Xbox 360 Games of 2012


The Top Ten

1 The Walking Dead

WHY!? Why is this game NOT in 1st place? Didn't it win Best game of the year? I mean, seriously!

Its about a convicted criminal named Lee Everett who is on his way to jail. He rescues a young girl named Clementine whose parents are in Savannah. They meet other people and try to survive with choices you can make along the way, making friends or making enemies.

I mean, come on! This game is amazing! I cried during Ep. 5. just saying :)
Never knew video games could do things that were possible for a video game. Must play if you have not played yet!

This game will do things to you that you didn't think we're possible for a video game. The level of character and plot development is insanely good, this is a must play for anyone.

3 Borderlands 2

Can't wait til it comes ou

4 Halo 4

The best campaign of the entire series that involves the Chief, those who followed the entire Halo franchise from the beginning to the end (like me) would even become emotional at the end.

Lets not even kid ourselves here, this is going to be the best game of 2012 and until they make a new game. Why do people even pretend that other games are better than this one will be

What? Just one step higher than the most sucking game of all time!?

BETTER THAN Call of Duty BETTER THAN Call of Duty

7 Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition

What is the one game you can play over and over again and never get bored of? Call of Duty? Halo? Grand Theft Auto? No. It's Minecraft. on every platform it is brilliant, and there is not a single game I can think of that is better. Why is this not number 1?

Minecraft will always be awesome! Who cares people think its bad quality because its blocks.. Well I think its creative! VOTE VOTE VOTE!

IT'S AWESOME! You can do whatever you want

It is one of the best games on Xbox 360

12 The Witcher 2: Assassin's of Kings
13 Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
14 Dishonored
15 Dragon's Dogma
16 Sleeping Dogs
17 Need for Speed Most Wanted
18 Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Most underrated RPG ever

19 Sniper Elite V2
20 FIFA Soccer 13
21 Far Cry 3
22 Forza Horizon

This game was my favorite racing game for quite a while until I played the second game. Microsoft and the other developers were very unique with the car choices (my favorite being the Ferrari 599xx). I hope the game gets more recognition later on.

23 NHL 13
24 Wipeout: Create & Crash

Cool game
