Top Ten Xbox 360 Exclusive Games

With the Xbox 360 having turned five only a few days ago, Electronic Theatre thought it was about time a small amount of honour was paid to some of the console’s biggest names. Of course, few games come with a bigger name on Microsoft’s console format than that of the Halo franchise, but alongside that groundbreaking First-Person Shooter (FPS) series come a number of other gameplay heroes, some more commonly sung about than others. (Crackdown 2, Culture, Dead Rising, Deadly Premonition, Gears of War, Halo Wars, Left 4 Dead 2, Mass Effect 2, Shadowrun , Splinter Cell: Conviction, Xbox 360)

Played Gears, ME and L4D2 on pc. All great except L4D1 it a bit better, probably because I played it for longer.

You know what? As soon as I read exclusive X360 titles, I knew someone was going to say this. God help the 360 in 2011. Seriously, they're going to need it. lol

Notice how Fable 3, L4D 2, and Splinter Cell are not even exclusives.
MrAwesome  +   1888d ago
Splinter Cell:Conviction, Gears, ME, Fable3 and L4D2 aren't exclusives, they are on PC.

Read the article - " ten unique gameplay experiences currently available at retail on the Xbox 360, and as far as the console market is concerned, only the Xbox 360."
PirateThom  +   1888d ago
It's a hell of a cop out for a weak list anyway.

Why not have Fallout New Vegas is the best PS3 exclusive, because, as far as disc media is concerned, it's the only version to appear on a Blu-ray disc?
MrAwesome  +   1888d ago
The title is still incorrect in both N4G and the original website.

5/10 aren't exclusives, but don't worry at least 5/10 are! :)

Stop complaining and read kevco33's little comment.

@ kevco33
I don't know how someone can disagree with you. Because you brought proof of the article in correct the dude up there?

@ PirateThom
No, it isn't the same. IN THE CONSOLE MARKET. What's so hard to understand? I like Sony but I'm not a fanboy not liking the list just because it says "Xbox 360" all in it.

I swear, all of you are so hard to get to understand this crap.

I didn't say I didn't like the list because it had "XBox 360", I don't like the list because it's a weak list that misses out on games like Alan Wake, Forza 2 and Crackdown in favour of crap games like Dead Pemonition, two Halo titles and a bunch of, irregardless, still multiplatform games over true exclusives.

And I'm not sure how my example "isn't the same", I can add a small disclaimer to anything and make it viable, which is all they've done on the site.

Deadly Premonition? You can't be serious. And ALAN WAKE ISNT ON THIS LIST? SHAME ON YOU!
PirateThom  +   1888d ago
Not only that, Deadly Premonition was also released on PS3, albeit only in Japan... but that's what we're working with.

deadly premonition was awesome sir you need to have some fun once in a while and that's what that game was silly non-sense that was inspired by twin peaks

edit: and for a 20$ release price you can't go wrong

shouldn't all halo games be considered one listing? instead of having 2 different listings
ShinnosukeRFD  +   1888d ago
this list makes me lol
it does not matter whether a person has a good PC to run those games or not. the reality of the situation is that you can find most of those on PC, which makes them multiplat.

ShadowRun - on the pc too

Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction - on pc too

Deadly Premonition - on the ps3 too(how did they miss that one? lol.)i guess they think japan doesn't exist.

Gears of War - on the pc too

Fable III - coming to pc

Mass Effect - on the pc too

Left 4 Dead 2 - on the pc too

Halo 3 - exclusive(pretty fun too with friends)

Fable II - exclusive(forced myself to beat it)

Halo: Reach -exclusive(gonna pick it up next year)

so let's break this down....

so only about 3/10 of those games listed are exclusives to the xbox 360 haha oh wow. step your game up xbox because this list cannot possibly touch the ps3's list.

alot of those games are shooters/wprgs, which isn't my kind of game.

edit: aw, i made the xbros cry with truth.

i agree for the most part.
i've played sc:c its an ok game.
gears is over hyped played 1 and 2 for the single player nothing special.
halo 3 looks like s%^& so i didn't beat it yet i might eventually just to get my $ worth.
fable 2 isn't all that great neither cant get my self to get into it; so i haven't beat it yet so fable 3 is a no no for now.
mass effect is ok played it and i hate the pop-in(s) mass effect 2 is great though.
halo reach on the other hand is f%^&ing fantastic such and awesome game.
GT: GanZ 1982 if you don't believe me
gamerdude132  +   1888d ago
@ Nyc_Gamer and ForzaGT
10. ShadowRun
9. Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction
8. Deadly Premonition
7. Gears of War
6. Fable III
5. Mass Effect
4. Left4Dead 2
3. Halo 3
2. Fable II
1. Halo Reach

ShadowRun - Also on Vista, but, well, it's Vista so it sucks on that.
Splinter Cell Conviction - Read up because people weren't happy with the PC version of this due to something about needing an internet connection and it would be laggy as hell or something like that.
Deadly Premonition - Not multiplat unless you're in Japan, which these people aren't so they don't need to say it belongs on PS3 because, to their place, it simply isn't.
Gears of War - Reviewers said the control scheme wasn't as smooth on PC as it was on 360.
Fable III - Not multiplat
Mass Effect - Better on PC
Left 4 Dead 2 - If you like the sticks, then 360. If you like the mouse, get it on PC. Still the same game.
Halo 3 - Not multiplat
Fable II - Not multiplat
Halo Reach - Not multiplat

So, what was your point again?

So, you don't live in Japan but to help support your... "fan-like person", you're gonna say it's multiplat. Really?

@ Shinnosuke
Do your math again, man. That's 5/10 of the list are exclusives.

5/10 that's still bad even though the xbox holds the "superior" version over PC.
Especially when the N4G and website title say Xbox 360 exclusives
BTW I did read the article but that dosen't change the fact that title is wrong nor that 5/10 of those aren't exclusives.
fucadastates  +   1888d ago
Deadly Premonition IS multiplat and on the ps3. even tho its only out in japan, i can still buy it in eu/us, and play it on my ps3 - its not region locket. my xbox tho, cant play games from other regions..

how no region lock saved my ass when demons souls was out in asia feb 2009, no need to wait for it to come to eu/us :)
visualb  +   1888d ago
If i can play a game without having a 360, its not "360 exclusive"

thats the end of this argument thank you.

fair list though, Reach and fable II are the most awesome, don't understand omission of Forza 3 =/
ForzaGT  +   1888d ago
i was talking about multiplats only and L4d2 or 1 can be played on the PC with a some excellent game pads just like any other pc games, as for the internet being laggy when set up properly it is fine and more importantly its free to play(no extra subs required) and most of time with free DLCs

Hmmm now that I think of it, I can't really name 10 "exclusive" 360 games of all time. But I could name 10 PS3 Exclusives coming 2011. And those 10 games are much better than 360 line-up multi-platform or exclusive.
CBaoth  +   1888d ago
ok I'll try then
10) Banjo:N&B
9) Blue Dragon
8) Lost Odyssey
7) Halo3/Reach/ODST
6) Gears of War2
5) Fable2
4) Alan Wake
3) Forza 2&3
2) Crackdown 1&2
1) Shadow Complex

Maybe some honorable mentions like Kameo, Trials HD, etc. Honestly, the unique experiences found on the 360 are fewer in total than on the other platforms, but to summarily dismiss these few (and some are gems) with such fanboyish clairvoyance is petty as well. Where's Rodney King when ya need him?

ambientFLIER  +   1888d ago
I love these kinds of articles. They bring all the sony fanboys and haters into the comment zone, where I can just scroll down and rank down everyone at once.
awiseman  +   1888d ago
I guess bringing the awsome xbxo games to pc is bad right? ps3 fanboys seem to think so.
TwistedMetal  +   1888d ago
i just game on the ps, ps3, and wii but now its just pc and ps3 because the entire history
of nintendos 25 years of games can be emulated on pc and the x360 has no games and no exclusives not to mention 60 dollars for online and the rip off console price with no blueray. Its funny how x360 owners dare call themselves hardcore gamers and even open there mouths and try and diss the ps3.

also lol at people talking about some XBLA bs. I have a pc I have the entire internet at my F'N dissposal. steam, mirc,skype, emulators, etc, etc XBLA is like an ant vs a Nuclear warhead which is pc.

Awww, why all the hate? WHY?

Yay Gears of War (^_^)
JustGamer  +   1888d ago
Whatever anyone say, here, Sony fanboys agree Sony fanboys and disagree MS fanboys and vice-versa.

There is no impartiality here, so why wasting time discussing, since a fanboy will defend their own side, without even judge what someone on the other side says?

Welcome to the Fanboy's World: the place where we fight till death to keep our opinion the universal's truth. Say something at least good about a videogame, that you will be 'strongly disagreeded' by people who likes the other videogame.
(Glad I have a normal mind, haha)

Ok, back to the article:
Yeah, some of that games are also avaliable on PC too, but what about those who don't have a powerful PC or even don't care about have it? Well, personally, I like to play only on consoles, so it wouldn't make any difference at all if a game are also on PC.

Peace, guys.
