9 Years With The Xbox 360

IM PLAYIN looks at the Xbox 360 and the legacy that it's left behind.

"I’ve spent the last six months writing periodic reviews of the Xbox One detailing my opinions of it after a week, a month and half a year. But, whilst I still love playing it and am in no way disappointed with my purchase, I’ve still got one or two complaints about the console. I won’t be voicing them in this article, however; if you want to read my current opinions of the console, check out my six month “review” of the machine here. This article, on the other hand, is all about the greatest games console I’ve ever owned; the Xbox 360."

The 360 is awesome, so its the XBOX ONE.

I disagree that you disagree on what he agrees and I agree on what you don't agree and disagree.

TheRedButterfly1243d ago

Sounds like a great course of action, you troll.

Hey now, there's nothing to get emotional about here, I was just returning mypsychoticstalker's good will to one of my comments. Nothing conspiratorial. ;)

I'm buying my first Xbox 360 today off craigslist. I was a PS3 gamer the whole gen, but I still always appreciated what the 360 had to offer. Now the console and games are so inexpensive there's no reason not to own one. $100 for a 250GB slim. I got Gears 1,2 and 3 for $11 at Gamestop. Then it's the Fable series, Alan Wake, Left 4 Dead 1 and 2, Crackdown 1 and 2. Maybe the Halo series (never really got my interest). Any other exclusives recommended I'd appreciate it.

UbiquitousClam1243d ago

Thats a good list of games but I would get L4D2 on PC, it still has a good amount of players still playing (I imagine the 360 playerbase is very low now) you get all the L4D1 maps + DLC for free and there is awesome MOD support for it.

Dancinsolo1243d ago

Super meat boy (also on pc) and shadow complex. Their arcade titles are spectacular. So many hidden gem there

@UbiquitousClam, while I do have a steam account and have a couple games, my pc wouldn't be able to run L4D2. Online play isn't important to me, all these games I'm playing for the campaigns. I will most likely do some couch co-op though.

@ Dancinsolo, I'll check out Shadow Complex. Played SMB, didn't really like it but thanks for the suggestions!

@AviaFlyer, yup. I'm super stoked right now. Just waiting to meet up to buy the 360. So many new games to play. Between the few PS3 exclusives and multiplats I've yet to play and all the 360 exclusives I'm good for a couple years maybe. By the time my backlog is done I'll be ready for a PS4/X1 and there should be an awesome library by then.

@testfire

Just so you know there is pretty much like zero story in L4D2. It is a ccop survival game not some atmospheric survival game with a rich story.

GodGinrai1243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

@testfire

You need to try the halos ..and forza 4 and horizon (they are VERY different to each other)...Halo is a MUST..ODST is a nice lil distraction in its own right.

there are some gems on XBLA too. you dont need gold to buy them! If you have never played any of treasures games, now is a good time to go for it!and then theres trials HD and evolution, super time force, the twisted pixel games ( I still have fond memories of comic jumper)...and you NEED to get geometry wars if you never played that.

PGR4 is one of the best handling arcade racers you will ever play..

Splinter cell:conviction is good for a run through.

If you want some descent JRPGs...there is a few of those too... http://rabidwombat.hubpages...

And if you never played the bethseda games because they were buggy on PS3, now is a good time to try em out on X360 for cheap.

Pogmathoin1243d ago

Beyond good and evil if not played on original..... Done Fallout on PS3?

therevolution1243d ago

Lost odyssey, infinite undiscovery, panzer dragoon orta forza horizon

green1242d ago

For something a bit different, you can try Alan Wake, Halo Wars and Lost Odyssey. I found those games to be amazing.

I had a lot of fun with the 360 playing halo 3 with friends and making friends on xbox live. I need help. Ivce been thinking about trading my ps4. Now used to like games that sony produced but not they are okay. And I love halo, and Destiny is coming out for ps4. Gamestop has this big sale this weekend so maybe this weekend is it?! you guys have any advice?

GodGinrai1243d ago

If you love halo AND want to play destiny...get an XB1. Its the only way to play both on the same console.

nucky641243d ago

my advice is to think about your purchases BEFORE you buy - it sounds like you made a mistake buying a ps4 in the first place.
no matter what you buy - ALWAYS think about it for a few days before buying....it'll save you a lot of wasted money in the long run.

danny8181243d ago

I know :/
there was so much hype behind the new consoles and now that I have been getting busier with my job it seems a lot harder to enjoy games nowadays.
@GodGinirai your right man! if I can get both then I problably will. Master chief collection has so much value, at the pace im going its gonna take me a year to finish that game up along with destiny... Im gonna think long and hard tonite about my next move

Jilokle1243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

@Dany You should keep your ps4 and start saving for an X1. There's nothing like owning both consoles and get the best of them.

That's a long time to support a console, 9 years this November and still going.

Huge success as well as it more than tripled the original Xbox sales.

LAWSON721243d ago

Well lets see free games every month and MS is releasing Forza Horizon 2 on the platform and they even got TF and Fable Anniversary to come out on 360. The platform maybe dying down but is far from unsupported.

MultiConsoleGamer1243d ago

85 million units and counting...

DxTrixterz1243d ago (Edited 1243d ago )

Past- Xbox 360
Current- PS4
Future-PC

That is my gaming.

Dancinsolo1243d ago

Now that I built a gaming PC I can understand this. Wish there there was a bigger jump from 360 to ps4, like there was from ps 2 to 360. Probably HD gaming helped with that

StealthPandemic1243d ago

Past - Ouya
Current - Ouya 2.0
Future - Ouya 3.0

BenqMagician1243d ago

Great console and soo many great memories those past 9 years(borderlands 1 & 2, halo games, gears games, forza games, COD, The Elder Scrolls games and so many more).
