The best Xbox 360 games of 2013 that nobody's talking about

OXM - We've already run up a somewhat prematurely titled list of the best Xbox 360 games of 2013, together with a list of 2013's greatest mystery projects - but in the wake of both articles, I became aware of a strange and unholy disturbance in the Force.

The story is too old to be commented.

Lol this features multi plat games so I don't understand why it only includes Xbox in the tags and title.

-Mezzo-1252d ago (Edited 1252d ago )

Maybe because this is an Xbox360 exclusive Website & the title specifically mentions that they're only covering Xbox360.

I guess they're "better with Kinect"!

cannon88001251d ago

and yet the remember me playthrough was running on the ps3.

knowyourstuff1251d ago (Edited 1251d ago )

lol yes, the titles are multi-platform, but really who cares. The bigger issue is that the reason no one is talking about these games is because about 1% of people have heard about them, and the rest of us just sortof said "meh" when we saw them at one point or another.

Let's hope the marketing budget on these games is going towards actual development so they actually turn out decent and get some good critical acclaim, that's the least this industry can do for games that don't splurge on marketing. Microsoft spent a billion dollars marketing Kinect, and Activision spends about 100 Million bucks each year marketing Call of Duty with it's overly long, extravagant commercials. If only that money went to making Call of Duty a better franchise, and Kinect games actually functional and worth playing...

People haven't heard of these games because some of them aren't out yet.

On the other hand, I can recall when X-Com was the number 1 board for gamefaqs for both PS3 and Xbox 360.

Sandmano1250d ago (Edited 1250d ago )

But you see n4g is not a xbox 360 exclusive website so is it our fault that we read the title inccorectly? Or are we suppose to know that the site is an xbox 360 exclusive website? Being such a seasoned contributor you should know that not everyone knows about xbox exclusive sites, also the website implies that they are games ONLY on the 360 in the title Im speaking about the average reader offcourse, you have to put in mind not everyone is a hardcore gamer that knows everything.

If it was on there website nobody would say anything but when it comes on n4g where all systems are discussed then theose systems should be on the tags.

Logic dictates that if there are multiplat games in the list than ps3 should be there or any other platform since n4g isnt an xbox 360 exclusive site.

Qrphe1250d ago

One had to assume so anyway, else if it was like Rizerz says, there would be no article to begin with.

Did the title read `xbox-exclusive game`or `xbox game`? Good God I guess they don't teach reading comprehension in school like they used to.

Skyrim for example is a multi-platform game. But it does not change the fact its an xbox game, a ps3 game, a pc game etc etc

Riderz13371251d ago

The title itself makes it seem as if they are Xbox exclusive titles seeing as it only includes the console "Xbox 360". Also the tags are misleading because it only includes the Xbox 360 tag so you would expect an article focusing on Xbox 360 exclusive titles. It's just a very misinforming title and tags. Thats all =).

Legion1251d ago (Edited 1251d ago )

No 'Riderz1337' the title does not suggest that. The title suggests that it is talking about games playable on the Xbox 360.

As has been pointed out before... the website is discussing for it's readers the best games they can play on the Xbox 360 that might not be on everyone's radar.

The reason that the PS3, PC and other tags are NOT included is because they have nothing to do with the main focus of the article.

If people were to see those tags it would suggest they had an interest or governing part in the article. Which they don't.

DOMination-1251d ago

Despite the lack of exclusive content it still looks like 2013 will tide 360 only owners over nicely until next gen.

And PS3 owners get a few treats too. I can't wait for e3 to see the future.

SilentNegotiator1251d ago (Edited 1251d ago )

Oh for crap's sake, read the website name. They shouldn't have to make accommodations because you can't understand the obvious context.

Criticize the fact that they're listing the "best" games that haven't even released.

legionsoup1250d ago

Then there's no need to use the word "Xbox 360" in the title of the article. Given it's an Xbox 360 site, it's already a given that the games they list will be on the Xbox.

As is, it's misleading.

stubbed_out1251d ago

Perhaps just another headline to drag in landings...more landings...more impressions (adverts)...more $$$

DarthJay1250d ago

For the same reason it happens with Playstation 3 articles. You act like this is the first time it has evvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvver happened.

Captain Tuttle1250d ago

Oh please, you people need to lighten up. Not everyone views this industry through the lenses of a console warrior.

2013 hasn't started yet derp.

Jazz41081250d ago

I believe the ps3 and the 360 are in a state of decay as they are aging. I dont play my ps3 much but I was very impressed with what farcry 3 achieved being a open world game on the limited twins. I am ready for next gen but not because of lack of great games but its time to catch up with technology the best a console can do.

jetpacksheep1251d ago

XCOM is still a mystery, didn't development get put on hold for a while?

GenericNameHere1251d ago

XCOM already came out. Unless you mean the other XCOM that supposedly has nothing to do with old XCOM games, then IDK.

jetpacksheep1251d ago

Yeah I mean the FPS XCOM that was announced a while back but then got delays and multiple development problems, I know Enemy unknown came out, seemed like a great game too, need to play the full thing (only played the demo on PC)

Belking1251d ago

Next year is gonna be awesome for games. So many to choose from.
