The console which has been dominating the Console Gaming Market since the beginning, Launched in 2005, the Xbox 360 which recently got discontinued by Microsoft. There was a reason because of which the Xbox 360 dominated its competitors for years. The Console was totally made for the New-Era Online Multiplayer Games with its power which totally changed everything for Microsoft. There are plenty of games like GTA IV, GTA V, Ha;p, Mass Effect. FarCry, Minecraft, Fifa and a lot more, that you must try on Xbox 360.
The Xbox 360 was the first one to introduce the concept of Achievement Points where players have to complete in-game missions and tasks like kill 50 Enemies with Pistol, Reach the objective within 2:00 mins or Score 3 Goals with a Striker to gain these achievement points. And as the developers knew that Online Gaming will be a major part of gaming in the future, they bought a new way to rate every user on the basis of their Achievement Points which turned the whole platform into a gigantic High-Score Table.
There are still 100’s of games out there which you must play once on your Xbox, but it’s not practically possible to play all of them right?
So, here’s a list of 10 Best Xbox 360 Games Of All Time!
10. Grand Theft Auto IV
The game which has never ever disappointed its players, the game which we have been playing since our childhood, the game which had its previous sets in SanAndreas, Vice City & Liberty City, yes yes you guess it right The Grand Theft Auto IV! All thanks to Grand Theft Auto IV that we were able to experience the Free-Roam Freedom in the Dream City NewYork in its true gritty glory. The game revolves around its main character Niko Bellic who is haunted by his old memories the lived in Eastern Europe, has just arrived in the United States to start a new life. The lead character, Niko has got his sidekicks, Little Jacob & Brucie Kibbutz who are also the best Supporting Casts the entire Grand Theft Auto Series has ever seen! The Character Freedom, Game Mechanics, Hardcore Action-Packed Storyline, and the unpredictability of the characters makes the game a real classic that every gamer must play! You can roam around the city and do whatever you want to, but Watch out Niko, Dimitri is waiting for you!
9. Call OF Duty: Modern Warfare
Call of Duty has been entertaining us with Action-Packed First Person Cinematic War Shooters. And this time, they literally dropped a bomb! The previous parts of the series concentrated more on the single-player story mode, but the Modern Warfare came in with a Multiplayer mode where you can compete with your friends in different game modes like Deathmatch, Gun Game, etc. The game didn’t fail in delivering the Call Of Duty’s Signature Gameplay style with Loads Of Action, Bullets going all around, tons of explosions, excellently paced and balanced storyline, and the game mechanics. The game literally took Multiplayer Gaming to a whole next level and became the first FPS Console Game to make Halo run for its money!
If you love battle-royale, then you must try this free title; Call Of Duty: Warzone, a perfect blend of Battleroyal and COD’s Gameplay!
One of the most popular games in the history of Gaming with a total of 1.5 Million Downloads just on Xbox! Yes, you guessed it right! Minecraft was developed in 2011 by Swedish Game Developer and was released by Mojang. Minecraft is a simple Survival game where you have to collect items, food, weapons & build a house to safeguard yourself from zombies.
Minecraft also introduced Multiplayer mode at a later stage where you can just invite your friends to your world and survive together, Share food, Shelter, Build Crazy Sculptures, Mansions, Hunt & Farm together for food and fight together with the zombies (Also don’t forget to prank each other)! There are multiple ways of playing Minecraft with your friends like making or Joining a Minecraft Online Server, LAN Server, Releam, and more as the Developers knew that after some time, it might get boring for players to play alone.
7. Grand theft Auto Online
GTA V, without a doubt the most popular Open world game even after 7 Years of its release. Rockstar surely takes time in developing games, for instance, GTA IV was launched in 2008 and it took rockstar 5 years to develop and publish GTA V, yes, they do take time but the result is always worth the wait! The game came in with 3 Lead characters, Michel (the experienced), Franklin (The rookie) & Trevor (The Maniac) and the fun part was that players could switch between the three characters from an interactive menu. This changed everything for players as it opened new possibilities for them to explore the largest Sandbox game to date and embrace the beautifully architectured city of Los Santos.
I have never seen such a great storyline in an Open World game I mean seriously, the connection they make with the characters. And the Dialogues were the best part, I mean seriously, no game has such dynamic dialogue capacity that rockstar has. No-one, literally no one can call themselves a gamer if they haven’t played the GTA V!
6. Batman: Arkham City
Arkham City took the Superhero Games to the next level. The game made players felt like Batman as they explore the gigantic Arkham City and beat the goons and solve mysteries all around. The Arkham City is a dream come true for Batman Fans with Batman’s (Kevin Conroy) narration throughout the game and our favorite villain, The Joker, portrayed by Mark Hamill himself! And you could also see the various appearance of Rogues Gallery members too. What else does a Batman Fanatic need in a Batman game? The Dynamic Game combat, Character Movements, and Batman’s High-Tech Gadgets were the main attraction and one of the reasons why the game is so popular to date. All the Batman Fans (Including Me) will agree to this, ‘Batman: Arkham City is the best Batman game ever!’

5. Batman: Arkham Asylum
The game which totally changed the Superhero games market, and bought in a huge horde of Batman Fans into gaming! Arkham Asylum is a perfect example of how to make a great comic book game. I honestly wanted to bring Arkham Asylum higher on the list but the game above is just mind-blowing! It was the first time in years when the roles of Batman, the Joker, and Harley Quinn were played by Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamil, and Arleen Sorkin. The Game looks, the story, the Action, the Modern City Architecture, the game mechanics, the character models, and the Dynamic & Stealthy Combat came in all together for making the Arkham Asylum a true Masterpiece which should be preserved in a museum! This game started a legacy that no other game ever reached!
4. Red Dead Redemption
The Red Dead Redemption (RDR) is close to perfect in every aspect. Red Dead Redemption is one of the fewer games who put you in the sets of Wild West. Red Dead Redemption is Developed by Rockstar, the God of Realistic Open-World Gaming Sector, so it’s obvious that RDR is also an Open World Game. Red Dead Redemption is every kid’s dream come true, the game allows you to do anything you can think of doing as a badass Cowboy in the Open world of Wild West. The game is developed by Rockstar Games so there’s no point in asking how the story is, everyone knows it’s gotta be awesome and indeed it is. The Red Dead Redemption lets players experience the most thrilling tales in the game. You can find poppy characters like Robbers, Mexican Revolutionaries, and Snake-Oil Sellers all around the map. You can live a real cowboy life in the game with those classic Bar fights, or Shootouts in front of a Salon or just ride your horse in sandy deserts while the sun sets behind. The game delivers an experience which no game can.
3. Assassins Creed: Black Flag
One of my Favourite games, Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag which was released in 2013 by Ubisoft. The game is a totally Insane, the game allows players to parkour all around the towns, find treasures, fight with the enemies, jump off the roof, and a lot more. The game simply gave players the freedom of movement and stealth which attracted a huge player base to the game. Black Flag has a great storyline that is filled with action, thrill, stealth, Intense Battles and light humor. It came in with everything you can imagine, Boats, Ships, Hunting, the ocean, parkour, shooting, and a lot more. And the best part is the Dynamic combat Mechanics which is just awesome. The character has some Jaw-Dropping moves which shed the Enemy’s blood without any effort! The Assassin’s Creed Black Flag has a lot to deliver, do try it once!
From the moment you start playing this System Shock-inspired FPS, BioShock feels like a mystery wrapped in intrigue that you can’t want to stop playing for a single minute. The game’s excellent sound design and (at the time) incredible Animations & Graphics help build one of the most unique gaming environments available out there. The underwater city of Rapture’s eerie, ’50s-inspired style and the voice recorders scattered throughout the city makes more real sense of history in the ruins of a utopian society that somehow took a terrible turn for the worse. I haven’t tried the game yet, but from the other’s review, the game is a lot of fun to play and go through and deliver an experience that others don’t!
1. Mass Effect 2
You might have more of a heartfelt connection with at least one member of Commander Shepard’s crew than at least half of the people you know in real life. That’s because the Mass Effect trilogy tells an excellent story in a fascinating, fully realized universe, where politics, morality, and love between life forms are all part of a much bigger picture. Mass Effect 2 is the Empire Strikes Back for the series, giving you more of everything you loved from the first part with none of the tonal changes of the third.
Commander Shepard feels like an extension of you, both for the ethical choices she or he makes, and in the capturing TPS, where lasers, bullets, and orbs of biotic energy zip every which way. Regardless of what you feel about the way the game ends, Mass Effect 2 is the indisputable high point in one of the greatest action RPG franchises of all time.
