Top 10 Xbox 360 Exclusives

NoMoreGameBlogs takes a look at the Top 10 Xbox 360 Exclusives, and why each title deserved to make the list. This article is a follow up to their article about the Top 10 Playstation 3 Exclusives. (Braid, Castle Crashers, Catan, Crackdown, Gears of War, Halo 3, Left 4 Dead, Lost Odyssey, Mass Effect, Virtua Fighter 5, Xbox 360)

Update We agree that this list no longer contains Xbox 360 console exclusives, when it was written it did. The title of the article has not changed because it would break the link. This is now our list of Top 10 Xbox 360 Games.

Weird list....

But it is nice to see some appreciation for VF5. Online play is silky smooth most of the time.
Cold 2000  +   2368d ago
I remember PS3 diehards blaming the 360 for Tekkens 6 "average" graphics. The funny thing is VF5 looks minimum 5 times better than Tekken 6 though it came out almost 3 years ago...
Its a pity it didnt sell that well. Sega did a really good job with it.

Six of which are all on other platforms. This list is simply terrible. Can somebody give me a real list of 360 exclusives that are already out? (Don't give me that Alan Wake crap, I'm speking in the context of games already released.)

BlazBlue > VF

Sorry I live in Europe and had to import from USA, the lag online is only at start of match then its so smooth.

Unlike SFIV which online lagged even if person lives in same town.

3 of the "Exclusives" were XBLA titles. LOL, I guess the Xbox doesn't have enough true exclusive titles outside of the Gears and Halo franchises after all.

And isn't mass effect multi-platform??

Heres my list of 360 exclusives.

1: Mass Effect
2: Lost Odyssey
3: Gears 2
4: Crackdown
5: Forza 2
6: Fable 2
7: Halo 3
8: L4D
9: PGR4
10: Blue Dragon

All these games are exclusive according gaming industry, IGN, Gamespot etc etc.

I dont really care about what a random forum poster on N4G thinks is exclusive or not (especially when he has a MGS avatar)

Your Number 1 is by far not exclusive.

X360 version of Mass Effect is HORRIBLE. PC Version of Mass Effect is a jewel with free content and patches too.

L4D x360 version is sloppy port with no mods and add ons. PC Version of L4D is full of win like all Valve Games due to 1 simple reason, Mods. You also have to pay for content which PC Gamers get free

Gabe said it himself he only ports on X360 for quick money because its like PC, but he hates consoles.

There's no need to take that tone with me, as I'm not trashing the 360 at all. I'm simply pointing out the author's inability to come up with a proper list of exclusives. I would say the same thing if a list as poor as this one emerged from some crappy website regarding any platform.

There's nothing wrong with having an avatar of a series that's been on almost every platform, so calm down and evaluate your accusations of console loyalty before you start throwing them around.

I don't care about some random N4G poster that's hiding behind a third or fourth alias has to say to me. Just give me the list and keep your snarky comments to yourself.

"due to 1 simple reason, Mods"
Trust me L4D console gamers, you're not missing out on anything right now. Current mods are unbalanced and downright terrible. In the future that could change, as for right now... both 360/PC versions are equal.

-currently only own PC version of L4D. I play every night.

Btw, that was a bad list.

@Cold 2000

Your list is pretty much on par with mine.

L4D is terrible online especially in versus mode or the campaign. Since people have played the same levels again and again so much, most players just take advantage of the exploits/design flaws.

Most people probably know the 13 second run to finish the first level of No Mercy or the Rock jumping or the clip through walls glitch.

It needs to patch up those holes since it ruins the fun... which is why i go to the glitch points and shoot my teammates... hehehe

keep in mind when it was written castle crashers and braid weren't announced on PSN yet, also I'm pretty sure our writer was going for console exclusives.

Lol Indeed.
Enjoy our year old leftovers little nooblet. I'll be busy playing Splosion Man, Trials HD and Shadow Complex when it finally comes to your system.

And the Wii does not have the superior version of Dead Rising. In fact, it's the inferior version. You can't see freaking more than 20 zombies on the screen at once and it has less than stellar graphics, even when compared to other Wii titles.

Also, the majority of these games are exclusive Microsoft, This is because it can only be played on a system which was made and manufactured by Microsoft only. Thus, restricting these games only to the PC and the Xbox 360.

Haven't any of you guys seen these "Exclusive to Windows" logos punched on some of the front covers for some games? Look at BioShock's front cover when it was still only for Xbox 360 and PC and check out the Left 4 Dead 2 Teaser Trailer.

what a stupid list
can't blame the writer, there aren't a lot of exclusives to choose from on the crapbox

10. Catan (haha, starting off with $10 downloadable. btw, majority of psn games are rated much higher than 81 meta)

9. Braid (it's a good game. but will be going to psn this year - like most crapbox "exclusives")

8. vf online (that's not a game. it's laggy fubar. vf5 came out on the ps3 first. that's like listing batman aa joker character as a game)

7. lost odysey (that's a disappointment, hence 78 meta. could have been great on the ps3 instead got limited by an inferior hardware)

6. gaylo (highest rated exclusive but why only on #6? because it's not that really that good. scores were inflated by hype)

5. crackdown (infamous >>>>>> crackdown. sold becuase of beta key)

4. gears of lag (this is actually an good game. played it on the pc to avoid the laggy xbl)

3. castle crashers (xbox version was buggy and a glitch fest. almost unplayable for 3 months. good thing ps3 version is fixed. thanks for beta testing, xbots.)

2. mass elevator (best played on pc to avoid long loading and late texture pop-ups)

1. L4D (resistance 2's co-op is much better than this repetitive, shallow over-hyped game)

@ nostalgic_noob
"Since this article was written a lot of these titles are no longer console exclusives, but these games still remain Dennis Jeffris' favorite games on the Xbox 360."

I think it might be time for you to go back to school. Do you know how to read? You PS3 lovers really have nothing to do with your life. May i ask wtf you are doing in a "Top 10 Xbox 360 Exclusives" article? Instead of wasting your time looking like a fvcking twat, go make some money on the sidewalk sucking d!ck for a dollar a pop.

PS3 fanboys must be the most insecure annoying people i have ever seen. If that expensive POS black box had games to play, wtf are you doing commenting on whether or not games are exclusive on the 360? Don't you people already have that list of 200 exclusive PS3 games that are out or coming out within the next 20 years? If you're going to talk about 360 games, why not do the same for the Wii since you can't play those games on your POS PS3 either? Is the x360 that much of a threat to your expensive movie player? Jesus christ you people are fvukin dumb.

Oh but this and that are not exclusive to the 360 because i can play it on my pc. Have fun playing those games on a PC! PC gaming is garbage. I dropped that like 5 years ago. Wtf would anybody want to look at a 20 inch screen when you can play on a 50 inch HDTV? Bu.. buuuu... buuuutt the graphics!! lol

I have one PC gaming friend left out of the bunch and he gets laughed at (in a friendly way) for being such a loser. Then again he uses his pc to TRY and pick up women over the internet like the majority of you probably do anyways. When we finally convince him to get out and come to the beach he looks like a fvckin ghost that was stuck in his closet for the entire spring/summer. Get out, have fun and game after or stay the loser you are. Whichever floats your boat!

Mod.. where you at? Still waiting for that PM.

How bout Alan Wake, is that an exclusive?

If I remember correctly you were one of the 1st ones to cry about Alan Wake no longer coming to PC. lol
Pandamobile  +   2368d ago
No, Remedy said they still want to make a PC version (considering they're a PC developer and their CEO wants a PC version, there will be a PC version)

But, Microsoft are greedy whores and as their publisher decided to put the PC version on hold to sell more white couch boxes.
keysy420  +   2368d ago
that list sucks
and only 4 of those games are exclusive
Pandamobile  +   2368d ago
Braid is on PC and 360 and is going to the PSN (I believe)
Virtua Fighter 5 is on 360 and PS3
Gears of War is on PC too
Castle Crashers is headed to PSN
Mass Effect is on PC
And Left 4 Dead is a PC game with an Xbox 360 port.

Does this retard know what 'exclusive' means?

Why not put Call of Duty 4 on that list while you're at it.

For this idiot, exclusive means anything I can play on X360.
Philip J Fry  +   2368d ago
It is annoying
When people continue to say Xbox Exclusive, but the game is on PC also. What they should be saying is Microsoft Exclusive. If you are not pirating and are buying PC games then you are still supporting Microsoft Games for Windows, and while it is on PC it is not on PS3 and is exclusive to Microsoft.
Gun_Senshi  +   2368d ago
actually microsoft does not gain anything from PC gain unless they are published by microsoft game studios like age of empire.
Pandamobile  +   2368d ago
No, Microsoft exclusive doesn't work either. L4D has no connection to Microsoft. Neither does Braid.

A game that's on PC and 360 if anything - could be called a "DirectX exclusive" because that's pretty much the only thing they share.

Don't MS make direct X?

and being released on 360 & Windows is kinda Microsoft exclusive, but definitely not exclusive to 360. This list is pretty poor, why do exclusive lists ignore the PC is it only to make there list look better.

Now i'm not a 360 gamer, nor am I a hater, anyone feel like writing a real 360 list? mine would list stuff like Halo 3, Crackdown, Fable 2, not sure what else but I'm sure there are more...
Pandamobile  +   2368d ago
There's ways of using DirectX on Linux.
sunil  +   2368d ago
The PC platform and the 360 platform are owned by Microsoft (yes we can go back and forth on PC not completely owned by MS)

So to most people, PC and 360 would make it a MS exclusive and to 360 fan (term loosely used here) would make it a 360 exclusive

Of course, same with all the "titles = names" which you can get for the psp.. like r&c, kz, resistance, mgs.

Oh wait.. psp belongs to Sony..

and "Games for WINDOWS" belong to MS.

Actually most Games on PC work on Mac and Linux.

All "Windows Only" Games work on Linux.

MS do not gain anything from PC Games that sell, unless MS Game Studios publish them. Example is MS gains nothing from L4D for PC, but gains money from Gears on PC.

Xbox 360 sucks. That is sad, that xbox fanboys list games that are not even exclusive. Funny also that the top games on xbox 360 are the non exclusive ones that they say are lol. shows that the xbox has no games.
Left 4 Dead 1 PC
Left 4 Dead 2 PC
Mass Effect PC
Mass Effect 2 PC
Dead Rising Wii
Dead Rising 2 PC,PS3
Lost Planet PC,PS3
Lost Planet 2 PC,PS3
Gears of War PC
Bioshock PC,PS3
Splinter Cell:DA PC
Splinter Cell: Conviction PC
Braid PC,PS3
Castle Crashers PS3

I am sure there is more, those are just the ones i can think of.Also the rest of the games on there suck. Crackdown,Catan,Halo 3,Lost Odyssey,Virtua Fighter.

we've also got a list of PS3 Exclusives, they 100% not on any platform, although since Microsoft owns Xbox and Windows, I would still consider those games to be exclusive.
KrazieBone420  +   2368d ago
That is what Xbox fanboys always say. That is the most ignorant thing to say "but wait Microsoft owns Xbox and Windows" so that makes it an exclusive? what? ok i dont think so. Do you fanboys not understand what EXCLUSIVE means? we are talking about console exclusives here. Do you see any of the PS3 or Wii exclusives also on another platform? yeah i dont think so. See xbox says they are exclusives but they are also on the PC which the PC should not even be in the CONSOLE war. PC beats all and of course it does, its a COMPUTER and it has no limits. Its so annoying when people try to bring PC into the console war and compare PC with console its stupid. An exclusive game should only be on one platform is what i am saying so think what you want but that is the truth.

well maybe he should have called it a list of games that can't be found on other consoles. Either way it still strengthens the 360 library over that of other consoles. If somebody is looking to buy a console, these games will/could influence their choice.
KrazieBone420  +   2368d ago
I dont know about you or anybody els. If i was looking to get into console gaming and looked at both PS3 and Xbox 360s exclusives, i would go with the PS3. Clearly the PS3 have proven that it is the true next gen system this generation. Just look at the exclusives on the PS3 compared to the Xbox 360. It makes the Xbox look like a last gen system, it is pretty sad really. The latest so called exclusive Splinter Cell: Conviction on Xbox 360, the devs said they maxed out the 360 on that game. Slpinter Cell:C is not even a groundbreaking true next gen game. Just look at it, if you have not yet to. Not saying that it is a bad game, just saying the xbox is weak and that it has come to it's limit. Now with the PS3, It is not even close to being done. The PS3 i would say will come to it's limit in about a year, year and a half.
