21 Halo 4 Halo 4

Halo is probably the most immersive franchise on any console, everything from the graphics, to multiplayer, to the storyline is exceptional. Halo is the reason you buy an Xbox and you can see why with Halo 4. I have never played a game as good as this and the only other game I'd consider is Halo Reach.

Damn this game is great! This must be the best Halo game so far. Must be in the top ten! Listening to the soundtrack now.

This game is amazing. the graphics are unreal and the sounds of the guns are so realistic. LOVE MASTER CHIEF!

Definitely one of the best.

22 Batman: Arkham City Batman: Arkham City

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. - MRJ12744

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

23 Mass Effect Mass Effect

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.

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. - Punisher12

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. - cnauta70

Best Xbox 360 game in my opinion - ME2 layout put it above the rest - main quest and side quest, paragon and renegade

24 Far Cry 3 Far Cry 3

I remember the days in Far Cry 3, where I used to hide on a hill and shoot animals and people that passed the street, those were the days. - danielwotsits

Lots to explore and many different ways to play this open-world game. The acting is also top-notch.

The best graphics game I ever play

Why is this #31 it should be #1, it has better graphics then Grand Theft Auto v and it came out 3 years earlier.

25 Left 4 Dead 2 Left 4 Dead 2

Left 4 Dead 2 is one of the best games in history. You get to play as a few survivors,
Coach, Rochelle, Ellis and Nick. The games even better with all the Game Modes like Infected, Survival, and many more. - danielwotsits

This is better then left for dead 1 - Sabbath

I can't belive this is #57th! This beats halo and Call of Duty anyday!

26 Left 4 Dead Left 4 Dead

28 FIFA Soccer 12 FIFA Soccer 12

Three major gameplay changes have been implemented in FIFA 12; these are the Impact Engine, Tactical Defending, and Precision Dribbling. The manager's relationship with players and the media will play a larger role, with team selection, success, and salaries all affecting individual players' attitudes and morale, and the press picking up on injuries and unrest, all of which can impact performance on the pitch. Unhappy players can talk to the press and stir up interest from other clubs, with transfer AI also having been improved upon. Transfer targets will sometimes demand excessive wages if they think they can get away with it, and rival clubs will chance tempting your star players away for a bargain price.

Best FIFA so far.
Amazing graphics and ball control is realistic

29 Half-Life 2 The Orange Box Half-Life 2 The Orange Box

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 - Chickenlegs

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

The Orange Box has 3 great games, TF2, Half Life 2, and Portal 2. Why you wouldn't buy this when you see it in the store, I don't know, - danielwotsits

30 Gears of War 3 Gears of War 3

Ooh man it's a great game with perfect graphics and control it shouldn't be on 71 number it should be on 19

Surprised this is so low. This has been my favourite game on the system, followed closly by bioshock infinite and gta5

31 Need for Speed Most Wanted Need for Speed Most Wanted

This game is the bomb, a storyline with an action packed moment at every corner and lots of police action and racing, a true racer that I like

I own this game and I would have to say it is the best of a sub-genre of racing games, and the vehicle customization is superb.

This is a rocking high time game

Best racing game EVER, I need not say more - Connqr

32 Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag

I don't understand why this isn't higher on the list. It is probably the best open-world game out there because you can literally explore every inch of the map seamlessly. You can jump off your ship and swim from one side of the map to the other if you wanted to. - Nick_10

I love how its set from a Pirate, who does ' PARKOUR! - danielwotsits

Awesome game better than halo 3 free roam picpocket and many other things I ha e played halo 3 but this is good

33 Mortal Kombat Mortal Kombat

Awesome game so fun never get sick of it graphics are absolutely amazing everybody must play this game!

This game would finish any other games you would get consumed the minute you play it should really be at least top 5 but whatever

My favorite game so far! Very cool story, graphics, combos, fatalities.

Awesome game ever

34 Portal 2 Portal 2

Portal 2 is my favorite game because of its story how chell is forced to go through each scene just so 2 robots can decide to let her go both of them turn against her and when one is with her the other isn't (note glados as a potato for a lot of the game) this game makes you think its over when it just gets started when everyone turns on you at your most difficult time portal 2 is a game that made me take chells side on all subjects even though she can't speak she sure seem to say a lot
The graphics of the game were great for the consoles it ran on
The thing that makes a game is a new idea for the mechanics I'm talking about the portal device its a great idea there's no way anyone could admit its not an original mechanic its great if portals story was any different this will make the portal device boring becuase the portals are great and all but it will just be another puzzle game without the story thank you

Portal is 116 that is ridiculous, much better concepts than portal. There's harder levels to solve, more ways to solve them, and an awesome plot! It combines all the good things a video game should have.

Why I'd this so far down?! It's the 2nd best game of all time! Put it in the top 5 with Halo Reach, 3, -4, and Castle Crashers.

I love Portal 2, probably because of glaDOS, if glaDOS and Wheatley weren't in the game, I would've hated it. - danielwotsits

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

This has got to be the best strategy game out there!

no.1 for war, army and destoying

36 Alan Wake Alan Wake

An astonishing experience! Fully atmospheric and suspenseful. Outstanding characters and terrific story. The gameplay runs smoothly and the combat system is sublime. Excellent graphics and rich with gorgeous and scary details to immerse yourself even further into the eerie world of Alan Wake. The soundtrack is probably one of the best I've heard in a video game. A great cinematic gaming experience. Hopefully they'll make an Alan Wake 2.

Great combat decent story but gets boring after half of the game

This completely entrapped me for 3 weeks solid wonderful, way underatted, try it
you wont be dissappointed

37 Call of Duty: World at War Call of Duty: World at War

The multiplayer was not the best. However it was the original game to have Nazi Zombies. This plays a huge factor in this decision. Nazi Zombies is probably a big enough thing that it can become its own separate game. Nazi Zombies is the reason some people bought Black Ops and Black Ops 2

One of the coolest Call of Duty's ever. Coolest Story Mode Ever! The Zombies are so cool and creepy. I just love everything about it. - danielwotsits

I like modern warefare 2 and black ops but seriously world at war was the first game with Nazi zombies and like this game has weapons that are only used in this game plus I love the MOLOTOVS!

I beat the game on Veteran. WORLD AT WAR ON VETERAN... now that's how you know this game is good.

38 FIFA 14 FIFA 14

The best FIFA game! - Jaewon

39 NBA 2K11 NBA 2K11

2K Sports has delivered the most finely polished and fully featured sports game I've ever played -- and I've played a lot of sports games. The amount of work put into 2K11 is staggering -- perfect recreations of Jordan's historic games, streamlined controls, NBA teams that play and feel like their real-life counterparts, a franchise mode that includes sensible GM logic and intelligent team building.

40 Batman: Arkham Asylum Batman: Arkham Asylum

This game is so underrated. I also think this is one of the best batman games.
