It's a shame that these games weren't as popular. Deadly Premonition, Lost Odyssey, Tales of Vesperia, and Blue Dragon are some of the best games on the 360.

This is the first list that I 100% agree with the games that they picked. All these games were really great.
edonus  +   861d ago
agree with most of this list but have some reservations about Blue Dragon. It is a standard oldschool JRPG. I like those but this was very stanard. It was OK though.

I've played through 6 of these 8 games and Deadly Premonition just happens to be my favorite game of all time! Great list, and it's good to know I'm not the only one who loved Deadly Premonition

turn based rpgs are like fine wines, you either love them or hate them and wonder how others can stand them.
Moby-Royale  +   860d ago
And how exactly is that anything like fine wine?

Oh?
What's that?

You say you thank me for showing you how foolish you are?

You say you're a moron?

Well I wouldn't say you're a moron.

What?

You insist that you are, in fact, a moron?

Well.... if YOU say so.

Been looking to by Metro 2033.

I liked the other JRPGs on the list but never got around to getting Blue Dragon. I believe it came out when there were other games I was playing.

If I recall I never got Prey because everyone said it was so short.... then I forgot about it.

Never even heard of Deadly Premonition.
Rivitur  +   860d ago
Prey isn't short at all I passed it in about 10hrs the average is around 8hrs.

FCOLitsjustagame  +   860d ago
The average now is around 8 hours. I believe the average was slightly higher back when that came out (10-12 hours).

Still, these days, for games that are only 8-10 hours they are expected to have a campaign that is pretty dang fantastic or have the multiplayer component. An average game of 8-10 hours with no playable MP and no replay value is still a "get cheap" game.
Rivitur  +   859d ago
Games these days are around 3-7hrs also you could pick it up for less than 10$. I went gamestop and bought it for 5$ new the used version was 3$ of course this was about 4 years ago.

I want Condemned 3. (Hopefully it's not marketed as "Condemn3d or Cond3mn3d").
aawells07  +   861d ago
Yes it would a dream come true to another Condemned, loved the first two.
FarCryLover182  +   861d ago
I remember like 2 years ago Monolith were hiring for people experience with melee combat games. I am hoping that was for Condemned 3 and not for Gotham City Imposters.
Max-Zorin  +   861d ago
Lost Odyssey is proof that the best RPG's are overlooked.
amaguli  +   861d ago
Lost Odyssey is definitely up there with one of the best RPGs released this generation. The mature storyline, the fun old-school combat system, the great soundtrack, Lost Odyssey is just a masterpiece.

Oh Blue Dragon,"You Bastard!".
Bagogames  +   861d ago
Haha!

Alan Wake
is actually the one exclusive I wouldn't mind jumping over to the PS3 because it isn't appreciated on the 360 which is a shame because its a great game
TheRealHeisenberg  +   860d ago
How do you figure it is not appreciated on the 360?
ALLWRONG  +   860d ago
It is

He's here because it says "Xbox" in the title. Truth is he only goes to the PS3 side when he needs to defend something.
amaguli  +   860d ago
Alan Wake did just fine on the 360.Remedy has said the they sold over 2 million copies of Alan Wake, and there is a downloadable 'sequel' of sorts on XBLA.
Brosy  +   861d ago
I think Kameo and Chromehounds should have been mentioned. Both didnt sell very well, but were good games.
StreetsofRage  +   861d ago
Played all those games and loved every second!!! Lost Odyssey is and should be the new Final Fantasy. I would add Kameo and Shadowrun on that list. I really wish Shadowrun did well because it's such an original FPS and very competitive.
THE_MACGREGOR  +   860d ago
i remember the shadowrun beta. I just was butchering people in that game. I due believe shadowrun was the first cross platform game right... xbox vs pc players ? idk could be wrong.. good ole 2007
IWentBrokeForGaming  +   860d ago
I loved the Condemned games!
NeoTribe  +   860d ago
Man condemed 2 was one of my favorite games back than. That hospital level scared the hell out of me.
ALLWRONG  +   860d ago
Lots of people talk about how great Deadly Premonition is. I'm going to have to break down and just play the game.
THE_MACGREGOR  +   860d ago
i didnt play C2. but i did enjoy condemned criminal origins . it had a plot that i didnt understand to todays date. But i liked the whole Crime Scene Investigator / find a weapon that worked kinda game play. It was the first game that really just freaked me the hell out.
MadMax  +   860d ago
Condemned and Prey are one of the main reasons i keep my 360 for!!!
