Next-Gen has predicted the top 20 games that will take Xbox 360 through the competitive holidays and into 2007. Estimated sales and analysis are included.

"Gears of War
Publisher: Microsoft
Developer: Epic Games
Estimated Release Date: November 2006
Estimated Sales: ~1,000,000"

I expect more even. over 20% of all 360 owners bought games like COD2 and GRAW. Over a longer period of time, but this Christmas there will be 10 million 360 users. I'll bet if I read the forums that at least half of all the owners will buy Gears. And many can't wait till november even

It'll sell like hot cakes, that's for sure!

kmis876355d ago

An attach rate of 50% would be ridiculous. Even Halo didn't achieve that.

BrotherSic6355d ago

What about Pro Evo 6? surely that is going to be a big seller

PS360PCROCKS6354d ago

ha well I honestly believe that like 3 million will buy GOW, if not more, and cod3, ok cod 2 that's the best selling game to date on the 360, once again much more will buy COD3

TR0N6354d ago

that gears of war will surpass even halo2, i say ~1,800,000 because at least the majority of people in the US and EU will get it. And for COD3 I say ~1,000,000.

The Best Tomb Raider Games Ranked

We've gone on many adventures with Lara Croft. With another reboot in the making, Wealth of Geeks felt it was a good time to go down the nostalgia rabbit hole and remember the best of those tomb-raiding thrills.

I do agree that Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness was the worse one 😂 I remember playing some of it and I took it back. That game was just awful in every way. I bought it used at gamestop and glad they had that 7 day return policy for used games 😂

Would it be worth saying why?

ZeekQuattro1d 13h ago

Simple. He's been hating on the Tomb Raider reboots for years. I can't imagine seeing them at the top of a best TR game list let alone being on the list in general sitting well with him because of it.

“Hating”

No no, just pointing out how TR mutated into a generic action adventure game losing the appeal of what it once was when it was more about puzzles and platforming over going Rambo, slaughtering waves of enemies

But hey, continue being a dick and speaking about me like I’m not going to see the comment.

Foxtrot, I'm curious if you have played the most recent games. Sure the 2013 reboot was hugely focused on combat, but each follow up became less and less about combat to the point where outside of a few large scale story missions I don't even remember combat being a part of shadow of the tomb raider. Shadow was so puzzle focused it actually was a bit much for me and I love the TR puzzles.

I still feel like Rise was the best of the series and I was a huge fan of the originals. To me it struck the perfect balance of exploration, platforming, puzzles, and combat. Not saying your opinion is wrong I'm just curious what you think they should have done different. Games do need to evolve somewhat to stay relevant. Would you prefer small linear jumping platform levels like the original?

RavenWolfx1d 17h ago

I would agree Rise for 1 and the reboot as 2. Shadow is a bit high, though.

Sonic18811d 15h ago (Edited 1d 15h ago )

I think Shadow wasn't even develop by crystal dynamics. I thought it was the worse in the new trilogy

Pyrofire951d 14h ago

That's right. Shadow was developed by Eidos Montreal who who went and made Marvels Guardians of the Galaxy next. (Great game)
Meanwhile after Rise of the Tomb Raider, Crystal Dynamics made Marvels Avengers. (bad game)

MeatyUrologist1d 12h ago

Agrees. First two are correct but Shadow should be around 5-6.

terstomp1d 12h ago

For me, Legend should be alot higher (along with the other two ). Shadow, I enjoyed it, but has too much has fluff, as modern games tend to do. Playing the remastered series, and apart from the controls, is very good.

jznrpg1d 10h ago

I really enjoyed the first 2 games, Legend and the first of the reboots and the rest I didn’t get into so I never finished.

robtion1d 9h ago

Completely subjective list. I really liked Underworld, I preferred Lara's design. That said I loved the horror/uncharted feel of the reboot. I think all the TR games have strengths and weaknesses. None are objectively better in every way.
