Gamepro writes, "Looking for the perfect Xbox 360 title? We've rounded up the 11 best games on the console and you can't afford to miss a single one."
Aside from lack of Assassin's Creed, it's a pretty solid list although I'd put Dead Rising and BioShock in higher positions.
They're worse than Gamespot.
You know what is "the worst"?
Memebers of N4G like yourself pretending that these scores arent deserved, or that this reviewer is some kind of odd-man out.
Well, you're delusional. Goto Metacritic and have a look:

Go and have a look. Go on, we'll wait. Now come back and tell us how the PS3 (or Wii) have better games.
See, those are *AVERAGE* scores.
FACT: Its the concensus opinion of the gaming industry that the Xbox 360 has better games.
Terrible list IMHO.
why no one pays attention to Gamepro.
my friend has everything on that list except for mass effect, orange box, and pacman......they're all really fun games........too bad his 360 bricked today
fingers crossed he lets me borrow all his games til he gets his repaired
Dont worry, his games wont play on your PS3.
how in the heck did pacman and one of my favorites geo wars score higher than HAlo3 and gears? This is just stupid and another reason I would never trust gamepro sheesh!
20 years from now will you still be playing Halo 3 and gears? Probably not, but I guarantee you, you will be playing pacman
I see were your coming from felman and thats probably true but there talking about now and for 360.
... I can't put Geometry Wars down.
why not 10
halo3 11th on the list makes this list crappy to begin with
if i made a list i would not NUMBER MY GAMES but just list them
That just seems like an odd number.
I personally would bump Pacman and Geometry Wars to maybe show Crackdown, Forza 2 or Assassins Creed some love.
Wow, how stupid is Gamepro not to put Gears on the list?! Even though the multiplayer started out great but got annoying over time the campaign and the over all gameplay was just outstanding.
I can't believe I forgot about Gears. That is a shocker that it's not on the list. One of the kewlest new IP's this gen.
i don't understand all the negativity.
I finished it alone on normal, and it felt long and challenging enough. the best bits of halo 1's level design and were strangely still more impressive i.e. the library, the snowy levels where there was the huge war, and you had to take the banshees to those peaks . But halo 3 is still very very good. some of the set pieces were just mindblowing the ending flood levels and the very end. wow.
Mass effect isn't exciting me enough yet, i'm not that far in.
Assassins' creed is pretty cool so far.
Don't worry, Mass Effect gets really good.
I HAVE BOTH COD4 AND GEARS,AND I PERSONALLY BELIEVE GEARS OF WAR IS THE SUPERIOR GAME.
COD4 IS GREAT,BUT IT SIMPLY GETS OLD;FAST.UNLIKE GEARS,THERE'S NO ELEMENT OF SURPRISE AND RUSHED EXCITEMENT IN COD4,IN GEARS THERE'S ALWAYS THAT "HOLY CRAP HE JUST GRENADE TAGGED OUR BEST PLAYER!" MOMENT,IN COD4 IT'S MORE LIKE "OH THERE HE IS,LET ME SEE IF I CAN KNIFE HIM".
My list would be (no order and no multiplat altough ill count the ones on PC and X box)
Gears, Bioshock, Halo, and Mass Effect. The rest all suck
However I own all those games, and a dozen more, two dozen if we count Arcade titles. Gamepro is out to lunch IMO. Was this list put to a vote? How did they compile this mess?
I can see reviewers leaving the hyped AAA titles off the list just to be different, but Pac Man, Geometry Wars? I spent all of 2 hours playing both games combined and I've owned Geometry Wars since launch. They're good enough to make the top 10? I spent more time with Catan and enjoyed it more.. hey what about Uno, Castlevania, Street Fighter? Did they have grandpa put this list together? Why not add Lego Starwars, and Viva Pinata to while we're at it. I had more fun with all of those games than with Pac Man....
I thought Fox News had a crap list, but this one takes the checkered flag. At least Fox was being impartial, but this list can only be described as ignorant?
Their Mag, and site have sucked for the last 12 years, so I can only assume things are getting worse. Who is supporting this junk mag?
I am not going to talk about the order. But they need to remove Geometry Wars and Pac Man off that list. And add Gears of War and maybe Forza 2. Everything else I agree. But Xbox Arcade games such as Pac man and Geometry wars does not have enough substance to constitute as a full game. This games are played in short sections. Game Pro officially sucks, they suck always but now it is official. Who in the hell came up with this crap.
The True Gamer has spoken.
was gears on there?
And this is the best the xbug 360 has to offer.
blah blah blah blah blah blah.. I hate the 360.. blah blah blah.
This is a discussion for gamers, not people who worship one particular piece of black pastic.
we will ask for you. Go away troll
I smell a jealous troll.
Go back to your blu-ray player.
Good list all around, geometry wars and Pac Man, um ya w.e wont touch that oen but ya all others are fantastic.
I like the list i have all of the games in there
I agree with some of this list.. Where is Dead Rising, Crackdown and Gears?? Heck, even Lost Planet provided more enjoyment than Pac-Man..
They should of made a Top 20.. 11 is just weird.. And why break them up into 4 seperate pages.. I don't like the layout of their stories..
First of all, where is gears of war??
Gears of war is the best 360 game out there togheter with dead rising.
Another thing that annoys me is how the heck they can put rainbow six in this list haha.HALO3 is only fun in multiplayer and was a HUGE dissapointment, why is it on the list? well well weird list and goodnight.
i've got 5 games from the list.. and by far mass effect as been the game i enjoyed the most.
about the list.......it's just their opinion, if you like it then it's fine and if you don't well...as i said just an opinion.
Nope, I don't think so.
Not that the shooter is a bad genre, its INCREDIBLY good.
No make that, unbelievably good. Its not all shooting. There's puzzles, you can ride in vehicles, steal hovercrafts and go on intense never-ending chases in Halo 3 especially....or in Call of Duty, and other games like it.
On Xbox Live too. No there is no comparison out there...
And obviously there's alot of great adventure games too, from Crackdown to Naruto Rise of a Ninja to of course Kameo: Elements.
And RPGs? From Oblivion to Mass Effect to even now Lost Odyssey & more....the genres are expanding to include a great game in every genre. Shooting is what people who have "fun" do....
And the best shooters are epic stories with amazing gameplay. Its not the shooting that matters worth crap in an "FPS" or shooter....its the story, the absolute fun factor from stealing everyone's turret to gunning down the enemy's gunship.
...this is not neccessarily GamePro saying that these are the best games, in order, to buy for the 360- just that they are their top 11 (as opposed to your own top 11 picks). Second, "About 90% of that list are just 5 hour generic shooters." What? Even if 90% are shooters (I didn't count) they are among the best shooters available. Half-Life 2 generic? COD4 generic? Halo 3- well maybe (and before you complain, I have all 3 games in the series, so I'm speaking from experience. The multiplayer is exceptional- the shooting experience of Halo has been good to very good IMO. I like shooters but my favorite genre is RPG's). Speaking of which, I'm getting close to getting the Power Gamer achievment in Mass Effect. With Fable 2 coming soon (I hope) the 360 RPG library will only get better.
Power Gamer isn't too bad, you can get level 50 in first playthrough (30-40hours). 51-60 however, is a whore :p
But all in all it's a terrible list, I think i'd prefer an all-exclusives list.
I can not believe they forgot gears of war and to stick in xbox arcade
thats a totally different category.
gamepro you suck
BS list, also shows they don't like fighting games... my list (top5) would be something like
5. DOA 4
3. Halo 3
2. Eternal Sonata
1. Gears of War
based on what is already released.
Easy guys. I think it is interesting and courageous that they included Pac Man Championship Edition and Geo Wars.
I think these smaller, lower price / lower budget games need some credit too.
This list is just one of many, its not the only opinion. Clearly they just want to give credit where credit is due. I applaud them for it.
I've played HOURS and HOURS of Pac Man CE & GeoWars, and, its almost always some of the first things that non-gamers are willing to try when they come around -- its easy to get them to pick-up the controller, and they always have fun with these games.
deserves to be there. I don't agree with the order or some of the ommisions (Gears) but GeoWars is infectively fun. Simplistic beauty. Simply put - anyone who doesn't like this game sux at it. Proly never got above 100K. IMO Geometry Wars is the best $5 you can spend on XBLA.
