The top five must-have Xbox 360 games released in 2009 to buy this holiday season.
A list everyone's gotta agree with.
Everyone knows the best games on the 360 are multiplats. And GTA DLC is 50% rehash of old DLC. A racing game isn't cutting it MS for exclusives. Bad season. Piss poor year.
Since when are multiplatform games considered $#!t ahhh only on your ps3 fanboy world. Apparently exclusives are the only thing worth playing and they must be CONSOLE exclusive on top of that. I guess multiplats are considered garbage since the ports suck on the PS3. Might as well call them xbox exclusives anyways. This whole exclusive is the best thing in the world is getting annoying. If you don't like the list because of the game that is fine but you hate it because it's not PS3 or Exclusive. Pathetic
They should call the 360 the multiplat console. I still believe if you are gonna make a console specific list then it should have it's exclusives representing it. This just proves further that the 360 had no exclusives in 2009. Most of the games on that weak list are also on the ps3 with extras and also slightly superior.
The games are good but you simply cannot ignore the fact that the best games this holiday season on 360 are on PS3, and the best games on PS3 are exclusives.
A very sad list indeed...but not to shabby
Only ONE exclusive?!? OMG!!!
What are you little boys on about? Open zone(the one custom tailored for trolls like you) is just a click away and is located just above the first comment. Good list for the holidays.
I'll just enjoy Assassins Creed 2 on my 360 after christmas, I really don't think I'm going to enjoy it less just because it is on the ps3 also.
Then why aren't you posting in the open zone then ? Just look at your comment history. ignored by 60 user .. Yeah i think you shouldn't try to call other people troll. Just look at yourself i the mirror.
I bought Halo Wars, Forza3, ODST, L4D2 and exclusive GTA episodes was on the 360 this year, oh and don't forget about multiplats, yeah thats right gamers who don't kiss sony ass which happens to be the majority of gamers who dont troll n4g all day are allowed to play multiplats, which also happen to perform better on 360 and of course has the best online to fully enjoy them for longevity. lol, speaking of multiplats MW2 is the best game this year, you sony extremists can scream exclusives all you want both sony and micro released some great games but gamers are buying and playing the hell out of MW2 for a reason, that game kicks ass and will continue to do so, long after UC2 and ther rest of those ps3 exclusives that you n4g sony loyalist sware are the best but nobody buys them are forgotten about. My ps3 has been collecting dust since a month after KZ2. Both ODST and L4D2 outsold sony's big gun UC2. Hey UC2 is cool but the online multiplayer isn't there with the best multiplayer games out, I beat the single player with a friend, and thats was about it, UC2 is done, now since Forza3 and MW2, I knew I wouldn't have much time to split over the holidays once I picked up these 2 games. The rest of ps3 lineup wasn't nothing to bragg about. JOY
What this list is trying to say is, "don't buy a 360 this holiday season because our best games this whole year was L4d2, assassins creed2(ps3), GTA4(more DLC....sheeze), MW2(ps3, also overhyped) and forza 3...(GT5 killer /s). So hopefully people still have that extra 50$ this holiday season to play all those wonderful games ONLY on the 360! /s
I love how all you base your opinions as fact. You don't like L4D it must certainly be garbage. You don't get DLC on your console it's definitely half assed nickel and dimed garbage If it's a multiplat it's absolutely garbage or I can get it on my superior console thus making it garbage for you. If it's on xbox it's garbage, if it's on wii it's garbage. If it's not uncharted it's garbage. PS3 Fanboy dribble == Fact For everything else there is mastercard
For those who don't feel like reading the link, the list reads: 5. GTA: Episodes From Liberty City (read: DLC) 4. Left For Dead 1.5 (read: DLC sold at full retail) 3. Forza Motorsport 2.5 (read: an incomplete game that Microsoft/Turn 10 plans to use to milk players buy dangling DLC in front of them every month in the form of car packs) 2. Assassins Creed II (read: a game which improves upon its predecessor in almost every way and has been praised by many but uhh, yeah, you can get this one for your PS3) 1. Modern Warfare 1.5 (read: shovelware by the time March 2010 rolls around and Bad Company 2 hits shelves) This list FAILs hard.
But those are the best games for the 360 this year. I would replace Left 4 Dead 2 with ODST, but I've never been a huge fan of Left 4 Dead and I thought ODST was the first great Halo game since Halo:CE.
hmm..yeah, L4D2 was very repetitive
But I would replace GTA Liberty City Stories with Dragon Age Origins. Both can be brought for under $40 or less and I wouldn't recommend an expansion over a full game.
they had to put some exclusives on it. No matter how small they are.
I'm so sad that I can't play games on my xbox =[ Exclusives only or bust! That is N4G's motto!
Hope to get Forza and L4D2 for Christmas, Already have L4D2 on Steam to play with online buddies, though i do want it on my 360 to play with my RL friends and wife. Forza should help my driving fix till GT5.
The multiplat box is showing it's true colors. Most of the games listed are playable on the PC and some come with extras on the ps3 lol. They put GTA4:DLC as an exclusive to fill the void. Face it xbots, your beloved console makes turds look attractive. It's not our fault you invested in a mediocre two trick pony (Halo, Gears, Halo, Gears). Jump ship or face the drama of defeat with a diminishing corporation.
Ignorance is bliss they say, and Sonyflopfans are the most ignorant of all. They work in a hivemind fashion, while being mislead and treated like lemmings by the hiveminds beloved, the maker of their inferior console, Sony. The pull this company has on the Sonyflopfans is most likely due to a piece of equipment in the console that sends messages through a complicated sound wave that controls the Sonyflopfans thoughts and movement control. It is likely due to a meeting the Sony management had in a seedy Tokyo brothel with the popular mindbender Derren Brown whereby Derren proposed his mind control plan. It is rumoured the CEOs of Sony talked Derren into hypnotising the bar staff as they had no money to pay for the rounds of sake they consumed due to the huge losses they were taking on the ps3.
What a pathetic list.Xtards have been playing last gen expansions with sub-par HD all year long,while PS3 owners have been basking in AAA exclusives all year long.
More than half the list are multiplats...is there a reason to get an xbox 360 nowadays?
Jesus Christ, I'm just kidding. Lol! Don't get your panties in a knot. Read my previous comments and you will see I also make fun of PC gamers because they are slouched over their desks or whatever. (Page 2 of my comments). No offense to you PC Gamers. ;)
LMAO. EVERYBODY RUN FOR YOUR LIVES. IT'S THE ATTACK OF THE SONY TROLLS!!!!!!!!!!!
LOL! You actually pressed disagree???? What a tool.
I wouldn't necessarily say they are bad games...just most of 360's "good" games are on all platforms/MP. I own all consoles, but for ps3 only owners they get 360's best games plus TONS of exclusives....catch my drift? Besides, it was ok for 2 years when 360 fanboys were saying ps3 owners bought a 600$ brick, for the last 2 years, but oh, now it's "TEh ps3 fonboiz!" I'd say bad karma to the 360 fanboys. Now look what's happening? Sucks huh?
you made no sense troll. You talk about 2 years ago yet I see a fairly new account. Another account, huh? Guess your constant trolling has affected your other accounts.
And another 2 accounts? WTH are you talking about? First off i only have 1 n4g account, why would i need 2 in the first place? IDGAF about anyone on this site to care so much about rep on a gaming site. And i don't see how you don't understand TROLL. But oh yeah you're a fanboying troll so of course you wouldn't. And if you can only comprehend what you read, I'm saying, 360 fanboys in general ALWAYS smashed on the ps3. I'm not saying this site a lone. I've been on here for 2 years but never really made an account just saw the gaming news.
Wow, I'm glad I have a PS3, because that list sucks.
Well you must of had some interest since you came on here to check it out. Unless your just another sony troll. Hmmmmmmmm
I actually just bought an Xbox 360 on Black Friday and am loving it. I am really loving L4D2. I never played the first one but this game is fun as hell. As far as the list goes I don't see what all you guys a complaining about. I think its a very good list. I own 3 of the 5 games and love them. Sure MW2 and AC2 are in my PS3 collection but that does not mean they aren't great 360 games as well. You people need to grwo up. And before you go and call me a Xbox fanboy or something. I own 10 Xbox 360 games, 14 Wii games, 78 PS3 games, 7 PSP games, 5 DS games and 10 PC games.
