Top 5 Xbox 360 exclusives of all time that every current and future Xbox gamer must play!

Choosing games on a budget in this day and age can be a tough decision, wanting to make sure the game you buy isn't the game you trade in after a couple of weeks. There's also the Xbox 360 first time buyers, with such a vast array of games now available on the Xbox 360, what do you choose?

This list is what I believe to be the Xbox's best exclusives available to purchase now in the shops and they can be bought for a very reasonable price. The list is in no particular order but they are all must haves. (Crackdown, Dead Rising, Forza Motorsport 2, Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Halo 3, Xbox 360)

Ehh, alright list. Some predictable choices.

Lost Odyssey should be added.

I rented LO awhile back but only got 30 minutes into it and stopped... I feel I should give it another go because I hear great things.

Lost Odyssey
The greatest Round Based RPG this whole generation. Square Enix didnt even come near with one of those RPGs they made exclusive for 360 to Lost Odyssey, great story, an awesome feeling while fighting and the soundtrack/atmosphere is blowing you away.

I would cut Halo 3 from this list, its just Halo in HD. Rather add Mass Effect.

Never played Halo, any of them, have no interest to ever play them. FPS in general aren't fun for me.

Race car games just aren't my thing at all.

Have played the others.

Are you serious, the BEST traditional next-gen JRPG this gen. I'll let you borrow my copy if you got rid of it....lol

Great Music/Emotional Story/Turn-based FTW

One of my Favorite tracks

Shoot, you need to pick Lost Odyssey back up. If you stopped without ever hitting a dream section, your missing out on one of its defining features. I would be playing it now but just found out that my Xbox 360 can't play discs anymore. I can only play Halo 3 and disc 1 of Lost Odyssey because those are the two I installed to my HD. Really pissed me when I was starting to play Crackdown and slowly saw textures beginning to muddy up and disappear all together until it froze. Oh well, at least it still plays some games.

lol im just gonna wait till PS3 games somehow are added to this discussion 'sigh'
Jaces  +   1919d ago
I'd replace Dead Rising with Fable and Crackdown with ME.
Megatron08  +   1919d ago
The list should of been

Mass Effect

Kameo is another one that is worth noting and Alan Wake will soon be added to the list of must have exclusives

@Name Last Name
Then WTF are you doing in here then. What you was disappointed another Sony fanboy hasnt said "Well the 360 doesn't even have 5 exclusive's". Or are you just waiting for your crew to arrive with disagree's? I mean seriously why are you here?

@ MisterNiwa
Lost Odyssey was ok, but square never releases good rpgs until after the first final fantasy of the generation... they put all of their resources into it and then build other games of its engine.
kevnb  +   1919d ago
@ Megatron08
we cant even call mass effect or gears of war exclusive, gears of war 2 is exclusive for now though.
LazyDevs  +   1919d ago

OK,OK, play it on the 360 or play it on the windows based PC. Pretty much MS exclusive.
KionicWarlord222  +   1920d ago
Good list...I would have pick some more over others.


Craackdown ftw!

and Crackdown2 ftw.
DelbertGrady  +   1919d ago
I'd like to see Banjo: Nuts & Bolts on the list. Highly underrated game.
Arnon  +   1919d ago
Agreed. And I think there's more than just 5 games.

Halo 3
Gears of War
Mass Effect
Fable 2
Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
Lost Odyssey
Dead Rising
Forza Motorsport
Left 4 Dead

@SpoonRedMage - Lost Odessey very nearly made the list, it was that or Forza 2 and Forza 2 was chosen in the end, due to the sheer depth of the game and Lost Odessey is barely worth a second play through imo apart from showing others awesome scenes within the game lol.

@Murderdolls - LO is fantastic and you should definitely give it another go, it's good at pulling on the heart strings!

@KionicWarlord222 - Out of interest, what would you of put in over others?
KionicWarlord222  +   1920d ago
If i could "add" some. I would put dead or alive 4 and fable list.
Shbzshar  +   1920d ago
Good call on Dead Rising
I've played it 3 times with 3 different endings .. it never gets old ...

I think everyone should have a go of EDF2017. Crackdown, Halo3 and DR were the best on the list.
Tarasque  +   1919d ago
Man i am so sorry that Sony balls are blocking your view and you cant see anything but Sony. But you lost your way, this is a top 5 360 exsclusive article. Not a teabag article, which you mistaken this article for.

That must be what you said in the PS3 section, so you decided to come over to the 360 section. Pathetic nerd.
DevastationEve  +   1920d ago
the list has only one rated E game.

all those games are great games, but they should've focused on making a list for each age group.

but i guess it's sorta true...if you have an xbox 360, you should have halo3. it's a given.

360 has a top 5 of all time? Don't believe it, 360 has 3 good games max
BWS1982  +   1919d ago
C'mon, it has more than that
and you know it. I have a mental list all ready to go when I get mine eventually, I know I'm missing out on some classic gaming, I have a PS3 and an i7 PC and I still can't play some of the ones I want. I can name more than 5 easy. I have a list of 5 games alone for XBL Arcade games I want. Ikaruga, Assault Heroes 1 & 2, Undertow, Omega 5, Perfect Dark 1 remake (when out).....then there's Fable 2, hell, I will even buy Perfect Dark Zero, Kameo, Banjo 3, Far Cry Instinct: Predator and Ace Combat 6. There's plenty there, and I and every true gamer can find something there.

I was half expecting the list to be:
5. Halo
4. Halo 2
3. Halo Wars
2. Halo ODST (cuz we all know it'll be awesome)
1. Halo 3

P.S. I don't really get what's so great about Halo...it's just another shooter but with aliens
StanLee  +   1919d ago
P.S I don't really get what so great about Halo . . .
Neither do I Dude. Neither do I.
Tarasque  +   1919d ago
Seriously why are you guys here? People have different opinions. We will just leave it at that.
kevnb  +   1919d ago
whats the point of that post? They put on one halo game, and that was it. IMO halo is the only fps besides call of duty that is worth playing online, but pc fps are the ones to play online.

"It was announced from the beginning that Gears of War 3 would be a trilogy."

Wow that IS Epic! I didn't even know that was possible. 5 total Gears of War games CONFIRMED ;-)

Interesting list. I'm not sure I agree with Forza 2 though. Hear me out, I'm not saying it's not a great game. But it's definitely not targeted at your average Xbox gamer. At least, _I_ wouldn't say that "every current and future Xbox gamer must play" it.

I still need to play Crackdown and Mass Effect (suspiciously missing from this list).
BlackPrince 42  +   1919d ago
Mass Effect? Or did they cut that because it's on PC as well?
kevnb  +   1919d ago
that would make sense
how can you call it xbox 360 exclusive?
Myst  +   1919d ago
From this list I only really want to try Crackdown and take a crack at playing Gears of War 2 at least once. Halo I tried and not really my thing, though I'd add Lost Odyssey to the list as I've been dying to play that game...
bjornbear  +   1919d ago
Dead Rising isnt exclusive is it?
I mean the franchise...i mean...chop till you drop = wii.......still yeah ok...why top 5 =P shud make a top 10....
qOHellReaperOp  +   1919d ago
i would scratch Dead Rising and slap Mass Effect in there
sorry but i just didnt like the save system DR had =/
