The Xbox 360 is a great gaming system. Terminal Gamer looks back over the past four years of Xbox 360 and chooses the greatest games to have ever graced Microsoft's white box.
only 2 exclusives lol..... still a beast list though and bioshock was a good #1 choice but ps3 top 10 is way better edit:and yeah i started off with that comment praising the ps3 so what
From what i see.... 360 only owners havent really had any new good games to play for a while
Any list of the XBox 360's greatest games without Halo 3 is bogus. Say what you want about Halo 3 but it's one of the best games on any console. List needed a huge "IMO" in its title.
Just like how your comment needs a huge "IMO" in it. See how that works?
Halo is the best series ever made
I thought Bomberman Act Zero would've made it. [sarc]
Halo 3 is the Britney Spears of video games, it should be on the list according to American media.
Really? So I haven't been playing Red Faction for this past month? Damn! Could've fooled me. Sigh. You ridiculous PS3 fanboys really seem to think only exclusives exist. Guess what? I imagine more than 75% of the best games this generation are multiplatform. I don't really care if PS3 owners get to play a particular game, as long as I can enjoy the same game on a console I already own.
halo 3 should be somewhere on it simply because it is the most complete multiplayer game released this generation. Also no mass effect?? maybe crackdown or red faction. no surprise to see the ps3 fanboys out in full force on this one. Please, for the 500th time, tell me how great the ps3 is.
Those are some really great games, but honestly the title could have been "The Ten Greatest Multiplatform Games", because that is what the list was basically comprised of. I played a couple of those on the PS3 and a couple on the PC. They should have had Gears 2 and Halo 3 on the list, since those are two of the 360's true exclusives that are actually good.
I love how an article that had nothing to do with exclusive games suddenly became entirely about exclusive games as soon as the SDF showed up. We get it. The PS3 has some great exclusives. Can you please find something better to do with your time than trying to justify your purchase to yourselves? Because I can't think of any other reason for you people to be posting that crap here.
just a comparison. From just playing through just bioshock I had around 800 gamerscore. Do you think someone who has a GS of 500 has played through 10 360 games to make a list? How can you make a top 10 list when youve only played 10 games. And its clear taht he hasnt even played through 1 360 game, let alone 10. This is like me making a list of the 10 best Ps3 games when I have only 5 trophies(even worse every 360 game has achievements to get, so 500 is insanely low for someone who supposedly played all these 10 games) Clearly he hasnt finished these games on 360, I wonder If hes even played 10 games on 360. Cause with a Gs of 500 he mustve stopped playing each of the 10 games pretty quickly to keep such a low GS. I understand if you want to subjectively believe this guy, but if your an objective gamer your not going to take someone with a gs of 500 seriously. Why? Because in order to make a top 10 list you need to actually play games on the system. With a 500 gs, this guy most likely didnt even complete one of these games. let alone 10 or more. Even playing 10 games for 20 mins each, youll probably get around 500 gs, maybe even more.
Silellak y so defensive ? something i said hurt u ? and im CLEARLY a fan boy i mean look at my comment history... NOT, nt tho.
Which games, currently released, am I missing out on by not owning a PS3? Uncharted: Looks fun. Not worth $400. Valkyria Chronicles: Looks fun. Not worth $400. Ratchet and Clank: Looks fun. Not worth $400. Little Big Planet: Entertaining, but I found it was really overhyped after playing for a couple of hours. MGS4: I stopped caring about the series after MGS2. Killzone 2: I don't like playing FPS games with the Dual Shock controller. Don't get me wrong - this is all OPINION. I'm not saying the PS3 ISN'T worth owning. It certainly is, especially if you don't have a 360 for the multiplatform games. And it's not like I haven't debated buying a PS3, but every time I reach for my wallet, I can't quite justify it yet. Does it really bother you people so much that someone who could easily afford a PS3 CHOOSES not to because they get enough entertainment out of their 360 for the time being? Saying they aren't games coming out for the 360 worth playing is a flat-out lie. Are there less exclusives? Of course. Does that suddenly make multi-platform games worth less? Of course not. I'm sure I'll get a PS3 for God of War 3, if not sooner. And by then, many of the more impressive exclusive games should've dropped in price, so all the better.
Its Hilarious, the way sites try & get attention. The idiots at Terminal Gamer do know from this, no one will take them seriously, right. The intentional omission of Halo 3 is obvious & has flammable written all over it, but their credibility is completely out the window. Heres to knowing your ridiculously retarded site, it has no merit, good buy Terminal Gamer, nice try though.
Unless you bought the cheap arcade version (which is stupid IMO) or didn't get all the stuff that comes with all PS3s, then I would stop talking about the PS3 being so expensive. It has been proven when you add all the features that come by default with the PS3 the X360 is not so "cheap" in comparison (not to mention the blu ray player we get). I am not saying the X360 isn't worth it, if a person wants it then it is to them, but stop with the "overpriced" crap like the idiot who wrote this blog of an article. Add up all the things you bought extra with your X360 or admit the one you own doesn't have the features the PS3 comes standard with.
Since you took it upon yourself to not only tackle my gamerscore on the comments here at N4G but also at my site - I wanted to address your comment personally. My gamerscore is 500 for a reason. My hard drive crashed a month ago, and living at college previous to this year, and in Vermont, I did not have Xbox Live. So, I couldn't recover my gamertag and lost all my gaming history. Honestly, do you think I would make this list of the ten best games I've played on the 360 if I hadn't actually played them? For instance, I left Mass Effect off the list (even though I full well know it's considered one of the best games for the 360) because I haven't finished it yet. I don't want to include a game I have yet to finish on my list. So, I did play through all these games and I've played through many more. My low gamerscore is because I just finally got my own internet (I was stealing my neighbors for a while and didn't have the wifi card for the 360) and finally have a gamertag online. Since I started with my new gamertag all I've played is the Orange Box, a bit of Halo 3 multiplayer, bad company, and left4dead. So you'll have to excuse my low gamerscore, but please, just think - would I really write this list if I hadn't played (and beat) these games and others to compare them against? Sorry for the long message - but I wanted to clarify why I have low gamerscore and explain that I do have the credentials to actually talk about the top games I've played on the 360.
I love how 360 fans like Silly are quick to deem as "not worthy" games never played by them. LOL @ "looks fun" but not worthy. On topic: This list is author's opinion as every other top ten list, so it should be respected like that. Many multiplats in it, and very few exclusives (real reason to choose a console over another).
Dear lord, you say anything remotely negative and the SDF shows up with Standard Fanboy Responses to things that aren't even up for discussion. I wasn't comparing console prices. I was saying I don't believe a few great looking games aren't worth $400 if I already had a 360. What, am I supposed to buy the console AND the games in order to find out if they're worth it?! I have to make value judgments based on what I know. I'd love to try out those games, but the two PS3 owners I know don't have them. I got a 360 before a PS3 because of the well-known 1080i issue when the PS3 came out - I had an older HDTV that couldn't do 720p, so the PS3 would've downscaled the image to 480p. This was unacceptable for an HD console, so I went with the 360 which would upscale to 1080i. If this wasn't the case, I might very well have ended up with a PS3. However, now owning a 360, I don't YET see the value in being a PS3 owner. As more games are released, I'm sure that will change. How is that not a reasonable stance to take? I know this is N4G, but seriously, are you people that offended by any comments about the PS3 that aren't 100% positive in tone?
I think it is just how you are coming across. You call people SDF if they don't agree with you. I could care less if you own an X360, one of my best friends works for MS and we pick on each other all the time about the Sony vs MS thing, doesn't mean I like him any less for playing the X360. For example, "However, now owning a 360, I don't YET see the value in being a PS3 owner. As more games are released, I'm sure that will change." You don't see the value in being a PS3 owner...is it because you don't like any of their exclusives? If so that is your call just like I could care less about Halo (not saying it is a bad game but I personally don't like it when I have played it at my friends). The things is what you wrote sounds like you are implying the age old fallacies of the extreme X360 followers: PS3 doesn't have many games and that PS3 is too expensive in comparison to the X360. The PS3 has tons of games, trust me. Yes the X360 has more games but it also has a year's head start to have more games. The price thing I pointed out earlier is a joke also. If you put everything on the X360 that is standard on the PS3 the price difference vanishes. NOW before anyone jumps on that, I agree that some people may view some features on the PS3 as trivial or not important, and to them obviously the X360 is a better value. All in all while you may call me the SDF you would be wrong. Yes I support Sony. I have never had a problem with any of their products. I owned the same PS2 and never had to replace it. I have had a Sony tv in my home for over 15 years with zero problems. I personally don't like MS and their approach to business (from a personal standpoint). This doesn't mean I want MS to burn to the ground. I like them in the market because I would never want a single console/company market, it would be horrid. I even would like a couple of MS titles to jump over <gasp>, like Mass Effect and even Alan Wake (IF it lives up to they hype). I don't like playing a ton of games on PC except things like Civ, Diablo, and a few others. This is just me and my view, as you are entitled to yours. The thing is don't post on N4G unless you can handle people who don't see the world the same as you. Oh and don't post on N4G unless you can handle the disagree ghosts or extreme radical X360 and PS3 fans (of which there are plenty of each). Have a good weekend all.
Kind of surprised, I thought I would have come in here and saw Halo 3 at the top, to be honest that's a shocker. Anyway I'd still have to give Bioshock a try as much as I've been putting it off, I need to at least rent it one of these days.
but it doesnt really have enough staying power to be #1. I am a HUGE fan of FPS, especially really good single player FPS, but often times these games dont have the staying power of games with a good multiplayer too. So far, bioshock is one of my favorite FPS single player Ive played on 360, but after beating it on the hardest mode(loading my last game everytime I died) and seeing both endings theres not much left to do. I will play through it again tho soon. If you like SP FPS, youll probably love bioshock. after you figure out how to kill big daddy easy it become really easy. (hint - use the trip wires)
Bioshock is one of the best FPS to date and deservedly at number 1 on this list. Make sure you get round to playing it. It will make you spit on halo3 quite frankly. Very surprised ghost recon made that list. edit @ nuri: you have similar taste to me, but I thought Halo CE and Resistance FOM were great and I'm not a massive FPS fan. Seriously try bioshock though, it feels like an RPG in FPS view. Best shooter this gen. Killzone2 and Halo3 are just straight up shooters with not much thought put into it and are only really good for MP.
There is only one small problem though, I dislike FPS. I mean I've played a few: Halo (only the first) , Resistance, Killzone 2, GoldenEye, and Perfect Dark. Of which I only liked Perfect Dark and GoldenEye. Only reason I would get/rent Bioshock is for the philosophy to be quite honest, I heard it was rather deep and engaging in a sense. Though yeah for some reason I'm more of a person who likes FPS Single-plalyer wise more so than multiplayer. Though if it's local or just with friends I'd play perhaps.
Did i count in "The Ten Greatest Xbox 360 Games Of All Time" List ? Can someone please Help
they should include Facebook as a soicla game LOL! O wait PC has it to ..nvm
Look at the guys gamerscore. Its 500. If he had finished one(thats right, just one) game on his list he would have a higher score than 500. If you want to believe a list of someone who clearly didnt play through 1, let alone 10, of the games on the list, go for it. Plus to make top 10 games list you need to play more than 10 games. Silver accounts are free, so if he had played these games we would know. The guy is blogging out his azz, and has not even finished 1 360 game.
Nelson, only morons such as yourself take top ten lists as fact. If someone makes a PS3 top ten and only lists two exclusives, you will see. My personal 360 faves: 1. Oblivion 2. Gears 2 3. Fallout 3 4. Halo 3 5. Resident Evil 5 6. Rainbow Six: Vegas 7. Gears 1 8. Mass Effect 9. The Orange Box 10. GTA IV I have yet to play Fable 2, but I think it'll go on there once I'm done. There's a host of other games that could be on this list, but these are the first ones that come to mind, and it sure as hell is better than the other list. Of course, this is my OPINION, because it's just a goofy top 10 list.
With That list
you sure would love to shove it up you butt.
only 2 exclusives.... wow
Actually the only exclusive on that list is Dead Rising. The rest can be played on the PC or PS3.
3 exclusives on that list, well at least they have twitter and netflix
and 0 first party games lol
its still early to say "Of all time". There are still more games coming up. The list is just the best up to today. These articles just keep getting worse and worse
I know. This would only make sense if we were well into the next generation of systems.
Hopefully there's no Halo 3, but i'm surprised there's not Mass Effect (especially when you see there is GTA IV). ME is really a great game, any 360 owner should give it a try (especially as it can be found now for really cheap).
Halo 3 isnt on? thats dissapointing
they totally droped the ball by not including halo 3
Ok go pay a visit to Gamer Zone. Where is the N4G administration? This is why i bash this PS3 fanatics so much this is the reason why. N4G is just protecting this little b!tches. N4G you are a PS3 fanatics den! YES i say it the administration is doing nothing about them but when somebody (Pro Xbox 360, Pro Wii, Neutral Gamers) else leave comments like that they detete their comments and ban them. Is that fair? That is why this is more concurred by PS3 fony fanatics than others. They are like roaches and this is where they hide.
Ahh, him is sad and angwy at da intawebz!
well.. its not theyr fault that the article puts only 2-3 exclusives of the xbox you know? obviusly if u see something on an article like: best PS3 games* and it only has a few exclusives, well, ppl will say *whats happening?* (and others will laguh lol) blame the article, he put bioshock #1 (wow!!) and not Halo 3 :S
Kind of a bad list really. Agree with the games just would would have put them in a different order. Like oblivion>fallout 3. Anyway I'm glad halo 3 wasn't up there. It's about time people stopped treating it like god.
I guess they have too much third party support or maybe too big a library? Seriously, this isn't a definative top 10, just the author of the stories top 10. Not everyone's top 10 will be the same. Halo would be in my top 10 for the Xbox 360 and for the PS3 I would have Lair and not LBP in my top 10. Everyone's opinion is their own. Still a great list. I need to pick up Fallout 3 sooner or later. -Death
no Mass Effect, no Halo, No Crackdown, No Lost Odyssey or blue dragon, this list is full of fail.
Agreed. Bad,bad list.
agreed man,crappy list,halo 3 online is amazing,crackdown is perhaps the most underrated game in this gen
I'm going to pull a Foxgod, just for the hell of it. I saw one of his comments from today and it was vomit inducing. Wait, Lost Planet 2 and Dead Rising 2 are not confirmed for PS3 yet! Okay, I'm done. NO WAIT. PS3 has no games! OMGWTFBBGSNIFFBUTTCHICKEN! There.
1: Mass Effect 2: Gears of War 1 + 2 3: Forza 2 4: Lost Odyssey 5: Fable 2 6: Call of Duty 4 7: Crackdown 8: Fallout 3 9: Halo 3 10: Banjo Kazooie: Nuts + Bolts
that list doesn't have the orange box or bioshock. it is impossable to make a list that makes everyone happy.
I never though Mass Effect is that good, Im looking forword to play it. i recently bought it ,what a good deal, bounce disc include Soundtrack, Making of Mass Effect, Art Work, Bring down the sky DLC, NXE Theme, around 15 gamer picture and the game disc :)
Mass Effect BioShock The Orange Box CrackDown Gears of War Call of Duty4 Left4Dead Fallout3 GTAIV Oblivion Ghost Recon and Dead Rising are great games, but they are not one the top 10 greatest 360 games of all time.
You guys realise that's the opinion of 1 guy? PS3 owners talking crap up there STFO
I'm not a hater, I'm just sick of hearing about it. And BioShock deserves the top spot.
This is a pretty sorry list for the 360. Especially, when it has been out for so long!
Sadly, that is one of the things that has really let me down about the 360, it has few good exclusives. I bought the console at launch and last night I was looking at my games and realized that I only own 2 360 exclusives after all this time: Gears 2 and Halo 3. The only other exclusive that I plan on getting is Fable 2. I do own Gears of War 1 for the 360, but that game can also be played on the PC. I have owned the PS3 only about half as long and I already have far more PS3 exclusives in my library. I guess if I didn't own a gaming PC, I would probably have bought a few more of the multiplatform games for the 360 instead. I like the 360, aside from the poor hardware reliability, but it doesn't really stack up to the PS3 in terms of unique exclusives.
I must say I strongly disagree with this list. I could care less that Halo 3 isn't on it, but no Mass Effect? Really? Forza? Viva Pinata? Those were all great games I thought.
Im not saying its a perfect list,but I do own 6 out of 10 of these.
I'm pretty sure the list should be halo halo 2 halo 3 halo war halo odst halo reach gear gear 2 gear odst forza forza 2 forza 3 Too Human Too Human 2 that is more than 2 exclusive.
No Mass Effect?!?! I don't like this list.
LOL at this silly article and a big fat LMAO for the idiots that think this is a good list.
why? it has got alot of great games in there including GeoW and L4D. Just because it doesn't have the most overrated game of all time doesn't mean it is a bad list.
his 500 gamerscore should tell you everything, he knows as much about the 360 as a ps3 only owner. T.T
500 Gamerscore? WOW Nice catch! Yeah it's unfortunate that a lot of times we get idiots writing articles that are created without any knowledge. Just wish the people in here could stop being so stupid and see the article for exactly what it is and that's just another article created just for flaming.
cause he couldnt have possibly even played through all the games on the list with a score that low. Interesting.
Below I've posted a response to why my gamerscore is only 500. Take a look so that you understand that I do have the creds to write this article.
... are available on other platforms, the author might as well have just titled the article, "Top Ten Greatest Games of the last five years." It almost seems like the author went out of his way to exclude the Halo series, even though I never cared for it.
Where the f*** is Mass Effect, Gears of war 2, Halo 3, Fozza Motorsport 2 and Ninja Gaiden II? This Article is a load of bull if it cannot include those games. And to the loyal Sony droids, I don't know why you are throwing your small d**** in our faces saying "LOLZ DIS LIST IS SHIZ COMAPRED TO PS3!" because your list isn't even in the Xbox 360's league, it's s***. Wii Standard. All your system has going for it is Metal Gear Solid 4, Killzone 2 and God of War III (Which isn't even out yet). All the rest of your good games are Multiplatform. So **** off. And don't you dare mention games like Littlegayplanet, Ratchet & Clank or Male Tomb Raider. Oh sorry "Uncharted"
"All your system has going for it is Metal Gear Solid 4, Killzone 2 and God of War III (Which isn't even out yet). All the rest of your good games are Multiplatform. So **** off." You sound like a spastic fool who's angry at a "journalist" that even I'll admit is wrong. this article does suck. But what you said above is SO ignorant, I feel like eating my mouse pad. Maybe I should listen to your words of wisdom. PS3 has only 3 good games. 'And don't you dare mention games like Littlegayplanet, Ratchet & Clank or Male Tomb Raider. Oh sorry "Uncharted"' The most childish, idiotic remark I literally have EVER heard on this site. Little Gay Planet? That's about as clever as Deafphat. I'm sorry that LBP is one of the best games ever, hence the insanely positive critical reception and over 40 awards and nominations. Same for Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, also an incredible game. Have you seen footage of the 2nd one? I'd love to see a 360 game of that quality. And by that quality, I mean near or completely unattainable. MAN your comment was stupid. REALLY frickin' stupid. You have joined the ranks alongside Mart, Deafphat, PP, Murderdolls, etc. Congrats.
