Best Xbox 360 Games

The Top Ten

Halo 3 Halo 3 Product Image

Not only the best and most exciting game on the xbox but also the greatest online game ever made.

the only thing that could possibly beat it will be the newly announced Halo 4

The way gaming was meant to be. Halo 1 itself set the standard for First Person Shooter games. Whether you love or hate Halo, you can't argue that fact.
This is one of the best games of the Halo trilogy because it had players emotionally wrapped up in the story line while providing gamers with the thrills of gaming. Both multi-players and single players could enjoy it.
Halo 3 also set the standard in how multi-player matching should take place.
Overall, one of the best games of all time.R.I.P. halo trilogy.

About me: I was always a big gamer. I would go through video games like crazy because there are plenty of great games. I never missed playing the old games after I finished them because it was on to the next one. But the Halo series is the only one I always want to go back to and play every once in a while. That and the Mario Brothers, but Halo tops Mario.

Easily the BEST multiplayer game of its DECADE..

The story rocked, and the series came to a nice climax.. CANT WAIT FOR HALO 4! Hopefully its gonna blow our mind as Halo 3 did

Halo is the best, because of the multi-player. The weapons are balanced, the levels are balanced and the game plays smooth. In COD4 you have a distinct advantage being level 55 over level 1; which is only an advantage to people who live on the game.

Halo Reach Halo Reach Product Image

This is the end of the Halo road for Bungie -- the group is set to move on to a new original game next while Microsoft takes over responsibility for the franchise's future -- and that sense of this being a finale is in Halo: Reach. It shows clear reference to past games, refines well-established game mechanics, adds a few exciting twists, and polishes the rest to a glossy finish. The result is one of the most complete, fully-featured packages you'll find in gaming.

One word describes it all, epic, Play this game and you'll see that there is a reason why halo is one of the biggest franchises of all time.

There is no way that Call of Duty Black Ops is ahead of Halo: Reach. The first time I got Black Ops I got bored of it in 2 hours but Reach is so fun that I am still playing it now because there is always challenges to complete daily and weekly and your always scoring and making your Spartan look awesome!

It's the very first game I play of the halo franchise, and this game was what introduced me to this franchise. Basically, I wouldn't have known about halo for a long time without Halo reach. Also I think the experience is quite different and unique from the other games. I love it.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Product Image

Halo 3 Is A Great Game By All Means And It Deserves A Spot On The Top 10. But COD 4 In My Mind Is Better. COD 4 Redefined The Way A FPS Was Played With It's Blockbuster Single Player Moments And One Of The Most Addictive, Balanced, And Well Thought-out Multiplayer Experience Of All Time.

As opposed to earlier games in the Call of Duty series, the game features modern equipment and new features, many exclusive to the multiplayer part of the game, such as "killstreaks"; killing a number of enemies without the player dying in between kills allows access to various assets including airstrikes and helicopter support. A character can be positioned in one of three stances: standing, crouching, or prone; each affecting the character's rate of movement, accuracy, and stealth. Using cover helps the player avoid enemy fire or recover health after taking significant damage. As such, there are no armor or health power ups. When the character has taken damage, the edges of the screen glow red and the character's heartbeat increases. If the character stays out of fire, the character can recover. When the character is within the blast radius of a live grenade, a marker indicates the direction of the grenade, helping the player to either flee or toss it back to the enemy.

Great game, the only trouble for me is campaign mode, in my opinion is too short, keep with the good work

this is such a great game, it is so awesome.

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Product Image

Skyrim's residents are all aware of current events. They'll comment on the civil war, some sympathizing with the rebels, others thinking the establishment sold its soul. The peasants complain about the Jarls who control each settlement, the Jarls complain about the rebels or foreign policy, the over protective College librarian complains when I drop dragon scales all over his floor; many characters feel like whole, distinct personalities instead of vacuous nothings that hand out quests like a downtown greeter hands out flyers for discount jeans. Characters stereotype based on race, they double-cross at even the slightest hint it might be profitable, and they react to your evolving stature within the world. It makes a ridiculous realm, filled with computer-controlled cat people and humanoid reptiles, demon gods and dragons, feel authentic, like a world that existed long before you showed up and will continue to exist long after you leave.

How did this game get 86! Voted 2011 game of the year and rpg of the year. The ps3 version had some problems but this is an Xbox list! A huge, open world with over 200 locations made by hand. You could play a wizard half the game then switch to a two handed axe almost no problem. Let the thief run away, capture him, or kill him and the guy chasing him. Random events that happen in sink with how you play. To me, this game beat it's predecessor Oblivion. I think it should be the best Xbox game

Skyrim is the best game ever! How is it all the way down at 16? I expected it to be in the top 5! There are so many options in the story and the map is breathtaking! You have complete freedom with you character, you can be an honorable warrior, a stealthy assassin, a studious mage, or whatever you want. You can even choose which side of the war to fight for. Skyrim is by far my favorite game and right now the only thing I can think would ever beat it is the Elder Scrolls VI, when Bethesda makes it. SKYRIM for the win!

You can't find a game that compares to this. I have always searched for a game that feels real. It is the awesome medieval feeling makes you whis you were there. It goes many references from Lord of The Rings, which makes it even cooler. You can actually interact with other people and get different reactions.(when you walk in the street with only underwear or get drunk)

Grand Theft Auto IV Grand Theft Auto IV Product Image

All the Grand Theft Auto games are awesome but nothing beats Grand Theft Auto IV... It is really so realistic and is the best free roam game in the world!

Free roam is the best thing in the world and that's why I love this game so much. Plus you can spend hours playing it and not get bored.

The game rocked in every way and the ending was epic... This is the best game ever made on any platform... Should be #1... Easily

You play as Niko Bellic, an Eastern European attempting to escape his past and the horrors of the Bosnian war. He arrives in Liberty City to experience the American dream, only to discover his cousin, Roman, may have fibbed a bit in his tales of success. Starting from nothing, Niko makes a living as a killer and enforcer, a bad-ass foreigner who appears to have no morals. The longer we stay with Niko, the more we see that there is a broken human being inside, one who would give anything to escape the person he once was.

Bioshock Bioshock Product Image

Things kick off with your plane smacking into the ocean and your character having to take refuge in Rapture to survive. Irrational plays on the conventions of the first-person perspective by thrusting you through experiences that toy with and vastly strengthen that fragile, intangible bond between in-game protagonist and yourself. At times, it forces upon you moments of reflection, which is so important and rare in games, where you contemplate the nature of blindly accepted game conventions, which we can't get into for fear of spoiling things. It lays a relatively straight narrative path for you, but it never feels linear, a result of the gameplay as much as the narrative.

Got to place the crown of achievements in video game modern marvels on Bioshock! Bioshock perhaps was my first video game from the XBOX library I played and for most of unusual reasons is a profound choice! The game of BIOSHOCK does one thing too good and takes another and welds it altogether to give a player a masterpiece! The multiplayer was over crazy fiendishly fun and fast paced! The big daddy is a revered game in my library of games I've played throughout time! Takes the past, present and future and throws players into an unsettling virtual world of horror surprise and fantasy action suspense! Go BIOSHOCK till the end of eternity in games! - VirtualwarriorJ XBOX 1 Gamer for life!

This game is crazy good. It combines all the elements to make a great game. The graphics, the characters, the action, the suspense, the story! Everything about this game was great. This was a game that made me depressed when it was over just because I wanted more. The Bioshock series should be number one.

Great game and great story concept. It makes the player really think about the quality of the game they're playing and if it's more of liking the game itself or the mechanics.

Red Dead Redemption Red Dead Redemption Product Image

Yeah GTA 4 is a good game. But for Me Red Dead Redemption is better! It has all the taste of what a Western Style Sandbox Game Should Have. It Has an awesome Story! For the least It Deserves to be in the Top 5! (Though it should be 1st, but oh well). If you haven't played it yet, you should check this game out, I Can be sure you guys will love this game!

It's tempting to say that Red Dead Redemption is ahead of its time, but the reality is that this is a game of and for the times. Rockstar shows an uncanny ability to hold a mirror up to society and remind us that present day hot button issues like racism, immigration, federal government power and personal freedoms are not only nothing new, they are deeply ingrained in American society. They are forces that helped to shape America into what it is, and their inclusion in Red Dead Redemption gives it a sense of authenticity that videogames in general lack.

Why is this so low down!? Get this game higher needs more respect!

This game is AWESOME. How dare they put this game so low down. IT is easily one of the best games on Xbox!

Grand Theft Auto V Grand Theft Auto V Product Image

NUMBER 30?! Is this a joke?
Come on people, you know this game deserves number 1! No question about it. Ever since this game came out, I sold my other games because I only play Grand Theft Auto v! That's how fun it is!


Best game and in LA

18! For real, this game came out over half a year ago and it still has more daily players than almost any other game, it has something like 300 perfect reviews, and is honesty one of the greatest games ever invented! What 18?

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Product Image

Such a legendarily good online play. Scar H red dot sight and Intervention FMJ all the way!

This game is the best game I have ever played... The best FPS game... You'll love this game. Please vote for the game. And please play this game you'll love it... Really a very realistic game... With ultimate gadgets...

This and Black OPS are AWESOME.. this should be first and Halo Second

Call of Duty: modern warfare 2 is the best game ever made. It combined the superior maps with the best weapons of any Call of Duty. The highlights were the intervention, the upgraded ump45, the scar-h, and the tar-21. Infinity ward created a revolution of first person shooters.

Gears of War Gears of War Product Image

Best Third Person shooting Game of all. I liked the story, the game play and the maps. The guns are rocking and the kill sequences are awesome.

Gears series is the best. I have played halo 3 also, but halo sucks really, all my friends are of the same opinion, gears of war original is the best among the trilogy, gears 2 is also good and gears 3 has beast mode which is awesome, the versus mode is spine chilling, this game simply rocks

Classic game! One of my favorite games and I still play it to this day.

By far the best game for the 360, a third person shooter is unheard of in gaming, let alone have a game the makes it so that you are able to mount in and out of cover. A cover system not used since killswitch for the ps2. And make it work. It's gritty bloody, violent and hardcore. 10/10 and my favorite game/game franchise ever.

The Contenders

Call of Duty: Black Ops II Call of Duty: Black Ops II Product Image

I think that Call of Duty black Ops 2 is way better the Call of Duty black ops 1 the best thing about Call of Duty Black OPS 2 is the new nuketown

Should be in the top 5. Has all different kinds of action including online multiplayer, a good story line and zombies. Zombies adds a whole new level of fun because it is unlimited. Best graphics ever.

The best game ever. Could play all day oh wait I do. Laugh out loud.

MP was epic, Story was short but nobody plays this for the story. Zombie mode made it feel like you got two games for 1 because it really is a whole different dynamic from playing multiplayer. This is number 1 and I will never sell or trade this game for anything.


The Xbox 360 version of the game, developed by 4J Studios, is planned to support Kinect play and cross-platform playability with the PC version. The gameworld size is limited to 1024 by 1024 blocks, although this might later be expanded through the next updates. At the Game Developers Conference, it was made known that Minecraft for XBLA would be coming out on March 17, 2012. However, Daniel Kaplan said on Twitter that it is Microsoft's decision on when it will be released, 4J Studios told Microsoft that the game was ready for release, Microsoft waited for a date that they are happy to release. It was announced that Minecraft would be the flagship game in a new Xbox Live promotion called Arcade NEXT. The game was released on May 9, 2012. Currently Minecraft for Xbox 360 is limited, although in time the game will be in sync with the PC version, but on the first release, Xbox Minecraft was many versions behind the current 1.2.5. Although many features are planned, they will not be added ...more

This is the best version of the game and the first version I played. There are so many memories of this game...

One of the best games ever created. A plain and simple idea placing a single block and creating amazing things. It shows how the most simple of games can become something so compelling. Minecraft is definitely my number 1.

This is my favorite game. On Creative, you build things, you can fly, spawn animals, and blow up TNT. On Survival, there is Spiders, and Creepers that try to kill you. And, if you stay underwater too long you will die.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Call of Duty: Black Ops Product Image

Great game not only because of Zombies but the campaign and the multiplayer parts of the game met my standards like no other game yet thumbs up for ZOMBIES!

This game deserves to be in the top 3 because of zombies and the multiplayer maps and guns not to mention the new zombie add on packs

The best Call of Duty by far. Great campaign story that feeds off world at war. The zombies maps blew the old ones out of the water and have yet to be matched by the new zombies all the way up to BLOPs 3. And the multiplayer setup is unmatchable has the greatest maps for online including OG juke town, firing range, and array as well as the best guns ever put into the game and the money system used to buy guns and attachments as well as to gamble in side games was perfect. this game was seamlessly perfect in every way. Should be remastered and made into an Xbox one game

Amazing multiplayer and campaign. Also zombies is really fun and great to play on split screen, solo, or on Xbox live and the first of the two Black Ops. My disc got scratched and I am even thinking of buying another!

Fallout 3 Fallout 3 Product Image

This game is one of the most beautiful, in-depth and outstanding games I have ever had the honour to play. The story line for the entire game series is one of the most interesting yet different- in it's own manner- out of many games I have played, and this game attracts you with it's freedom of customization, free-will to pick a path of life that you desire and also shows you a post-apocalyptic struggle of society that has many different stories to tell from all over the wasteland. To every friend who asks my favorite game, I fangirl, then I immediately suggest "Fallout 3" then I let myself loose with reasons why everyone should play a Fallout game. I will never get bored of exploring, discovering, helping, customizing and chosing. The uniqueness of the Vaults- each with their own independent story that links to the Great War just entice me to look deeper, to search for more. And I wouldn't have any other game than Fallout to play for the rest of my life. It is truly an absolute ...more

Fallout 3 is a special videogame. It's an open-world role-playing game that delivers an experience unlike anything on the market right now. It's a gripping and expansive showcase of how much depth and excitement can be packed into one videogame, and it does justice to the Fallout franchise. This sequel is the first made by Bethesda, the developers responsible for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. You don't need to play any of their past games or any previous Fallout games to enjoy this one. It stands on its own as a memorable and well-crafted videogame.

Fallout 3 will always have that one special place in my heart! I have played this game so many times I have all the DLC and on days when I am bored I find myself turning back to this old faithful friend of mine! I have played all of the Fallouts but 3 just seems to be the one that is the best in my opinion I just absolutely love this game and recommend it to anyone who hasn't had the chance to enjoy it!

More emotional, addictive, and well-written than all the Oblivion games combined.

Assassin's Creed II Assassin's Creed II Product Image

This is way better than AC1. Better man, awesome weapons, climb faster, longer, more fun, real people from the world in the past, and this game actually teaches someone about the true ART-OF-WAR!

Not only is it addictive and fun, anytime you want to get historical SWAG on, you can play this game and enjoy it for what it is: great story, superb graphics and music, and fun gameplay.

Awesome game really surprised to see this great game languishing at the bottom. All EZIO fans please vote for ASSASSIN'S CREED 2'

I love this game! I'm 14 and my brother downloaded it. ezio is our favorite assassin. this game is so awesome I beat it in like a week and a half. I'm honestly surprised it didn't get a higher rating.


Fable II Fable II Product Image

While RPG's like Oblivion are great too, don't let the game overshadow this one. It takes place in between medieval and pre-modern times... You can be ALL types of fighters, warrior, mage and thief! Fight with a sword one second, unleash a bunch of elemental power the next, then pull out a gun. Not to mention that the world was much big and beautiful for its time. Fable II was the best 360 RPG during its reign.

While warrior and mage seem fitting, thief is a poor description. I would consider Fable games to have more of a warrior, mage, ranger/marksman type, as there is little stealth involved - HollyRolo

I mean if your going to vote shouldn't it be a console exclusive aside from halo this is probably one the best exclusives to the console and is still considered one of the greatest games.

One of the most addicting games I've ever played. Might give it a whirl soon.

So underrated

Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion Product Image

Hundreds of hours or game play, most likely hundreds of ways for you to play the game, AND it's one of the few RPGs to really let you do whatever the hell you want, I've personally never finished the main quest line in my 600 hours of playing over the years.

It's not flawless, though. While some characters like Lucien Lachance are just fabulous many named characters in the game have little back story and you won't learn anything about them, making them feel like they have no purpose in the game.

Its only flaws are the sometimes boring characters, minor glitches (I mean minor, stuff you wouldn't notice) and some of the physics. It's hard to wrong with this game, easily 9/10.

This game, on a scale of limitation, is a 0. Truly amazing. Simply the fact that you can do whatever you want makes it nearly the greatest.

The graphics are superb, with extreme precision involved in attention to detail.

Every last feature, cave, weapon, action, reaction, skill and choice in this game, for me, is terrific.

I would definitely rate this above Gears of War.

Grand Theft Auto IV at number 3? Please. That's not a classic. I agree with Halo and Gears being so high up, but Grand Theft Auto? You've got to be joking. It shouldn't even be in the top ten. Oblivion is the greatest 360 game ever made. Maybe it shouldn't be number 1 based on its fan base (Call of Duty, gears, and halo fans probably beat it), but it is the best to me hands down.

This RPG is a classic Bethesda went out of their way with skyrim witch is also GREAT! You can just explore so much and the free world seems like it never ends the add ons are spectacular also I can't stop playing oblivion even now in 2012 I love Bethesda games the just put in so much into what there doing and skyrim should be at the top of the list in my opinion!

Mass Effect Mass Effect Product Image

The Long Story And Character Quests, Puts This Game Into Great Quality. Driving Around a Plant with Turbo Jump, Killing Aliens With Ether Guns Or Special Powers Or Even Exploring City Planets And Completing Main And Side Quests Missions. Mass Effect is A long Game Which Never Gets Boring.

Mind-blowing game!! Definitely showcases all that 360 is about. Graphics, shading, lighting, gameplay. This game should be in the top 10 very, very soon.

I can't see how CoD 2 is in place #7 at this time. This game should be there for sure and CoD 2 in place 14 heh.

I have to vote for Mass Effect. This has to be one of the only AWESOME RPGs out for the 360. No other RPGs out can compare to Mass Effect. I have to say that I voted for this because if you think about it. There are many great FPS but this one in the RPG genre just sticks out.

Greatest game EVER! By far in a way the most compelling story ever in a game its jus so great.

Mass Effect 2 Mass Effect 2 Product Image

This is the continued saga of Commander Shepard. It's the future, and all sentient life across the galaxy is in peril. An advanced race of machines known as Reapers is intent on wiping the slate clean. Shepard, a distinguished soldier, has faced this threat and emerged triumphant once, but victory is far from assured. Now Shepard must take the fight to the enemy -- a mission that is dubbed suicidal from the outset. Things don't look very promising, but Shepard has a plan. It involves recruiting the best and brightest from around the galaxy and somehow convincing them their lives are worth sacrificing for the greater good.

I love this game. Quite possibly my favorite ever. Great story, memorable characters, fun combat, with just the right amount of RPG elements mixed in to make it the best Xbox 360 game.

Arguably the best game of the decade, incorporating RPG and shooter qualities. I can't believe it is so low down!

Mass Effect 2, possibly my favourite Mass Effect game.

Batman: Arkham City Batman: Arkham City Product Image

Arkham City is one of the greatest games ever! It was Ranked 36 all time and hasn't been out for 2 years! There is a reason why it was Game of The Year. It had so many cool easter eggs and treats for die hard batman fans. It's the greatest game ever.

Arkham City so low! Come on, it's the game of the year 2011! I just can't play this game for under 3 hours. So Addicting!

This game brought so much fun to the batman arkham franchise with all of the new things you can make batman do

Great game but the only disadvantage is tbat we can't go in the city

Gears Of War 2 Gears Of War 2 Product Image

gears is the only reason I bought my xbox 360 elite hope 3 is as good as 1,2

This and Halo 3 are awesome, it should be this first and halo second and then the rest of the list is ok, obviously besides this being at number 14

This game is breathtaking. I can't say much more about it...Gears of war 2 set a before and an after in my experience on gaming in my not so short life.

I liked the multiplayer on this one more than the first one but you can't complain that the first one had a better story mode

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Product Image

Really amazing. Survival mode is like zombies but more realistic and way better. Best Xbox game.

Love the game it's fun to play the game with your friends and very entertaining to pastime and survival was really amazing to play with friends and random people and you get good ping will playing online.

That's bull modern warfare 3 is clearly the best game ever! Anyone who doesn't vote for this game has clearly never played it before!

MW3 is awesome! Why is it so low?!? The guns and graphics are awesome! It doesn't have zombies though.

Left 4 Dead Left 4 Dead Product Image

this game is brilliant I love it number 2 isent as good thou cause you are in daylight

One of the best games to play online with unforgettable characters

This game scares the living hell out of me...

Half-Life 2 The Orange Box Half-Life 2 The Orange Box Product Image

When I first started Half Life 2 I loved it. The story was great so far. Then I picked up a crowbar and things started feeling a little bit repetitive. Then I picked up a pistol and things got worse. Then I started solving some physics puzzles. That's when things started to get interesting again. I loved the story throughout the whole game. I loved the graphics that are considered fine by todays standards, even though this game is from 2004. I loved the physics elements in the game, which made the game a lot more interesting. I would give this game, overall, 8/10. The only thing wrong with it at all was the shooter aspects of the game. Its not that I hated them. They just got a little boring after awhile. Get into a fight with a bunch of combine, repeat. Excellent game, with a great, original story.

The perfect mix of awesome, incredible, and, well,... Perfectness

This is the Best First person shooter I have ever played in my life!!

This is the best game I have played
In a long time.

Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth II Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth II Product Image
