In their latest feature article TechTree.com has posted a list that in their opinion are must haves for Xbox 360 owners.
could have put tales of vesperia back in the days! not anymore T_T
Yep.360 lost yet another exclusive -Nai-
No Mass effect but Fable = fail
I really like Mass Effect but Fable 2 is still a great game.
That might explain it...
But L4D are ?
Gears of War 1(also on PC)-AAA,9.5/10.If you can't afford a gaming Pc,then buy a 360 to play this.Period. Gears of War 2-AA,8.0/10.Garbage multiplayer,solid single-player. Halo 3-AA,8.5/10.Near flawless online,mediocre single-player. Fable 2-AA,8.0/10.Co-op wasn't what I expected,everything else felt alright. Left 4 Dead(also on PC)-A,7.0/10.Repetitive,fun,re petitive,fun.A must-rent tbh. Braid(coming to PC next week)-AAA,9.0/10.Right up there with Flower and World of Goo. ----------------------------- ------------- That's my list.
I thought the camera in NG2 was just too annoying-ruined the game for me though some didn't mind it and I'm really looking forward to NGS2 for PS3 as a result. Gears 1 is still the best 360 game, imo, and trumps it's sequel with better online functionality and more convincing storyline. HJalo3 is just Halo. Wasn't as good in SP as it's series precursors but online (and with Forge which is cool)it does shine even if it isn't what I'd choose to play these days for a FPS fix. I really hope ODST makes Halo seem fresh again as the series high quality and accesability deserve a cool rebirth. L4D is cool but short lived fun(though I wish I hadn't sold mine!)and Fable is just pure drivel for me, can't stand the damn game-it's full of itself just like bloody Molyneux! Expect Rare to pump out a new PDZ soon and maybe KI3 which would make 360land look brighter for me!
Definitely agree with your list but if you removed L4D and replaced it with Mass Effect it would be even better. Not that L4D isnt up there with the rest its just way to repetitive to be on the top 5...
Although I would only be interested in Mass Effect 2 and Gears of War 2.
"Ryu Hayabusa may have defected to the PS3, but his second adventure remains true to the Xbox 360. The second game is bigger and better and features more blood than most war movies. The new weapons, upgrades and updated visuals made Ninja Gaiden II the best game in the series and a welcome addition to the Xbox 360. " The author should keep up with the news. Ryu Hayabusa defected to the ps3 in his second adventure too XD.
Lets not forget the fact that NG2 was certainly NOT the best game in the series. More weapons and enemies? Yeah, but tons of glitches and slowdowns to go along with it, not to mention the terrible camera.
Gears 2: "superior visuals" fail L4D: A lot better on an average PC, let alone a new PC Fable 2: Can't really say a lot. Played it at a friend's house seemed pretty simple, but I will admit I despise RPGs Ninja Gaiden II: Superior version coming to PS3 Halo 3: "With a gazillion copies sold this is the real reason gamers buy the Xbox" Say What? Why do 360 gamers insist that sales make a better game?
And why the he11 do sony fanboys worry so much about 360? Gears2 had some of the best visuals to date and still do for that matter. Anyone that can sit there and not say the worm belly or flying thing were not the amazing is a fool. KZ2 may be a pretty game but gears2 has it's moments also. edit: And sales do matter because without them we wouldn't get new games or even new consoles. I find it funny how last generation sales mattered but now they don't.
Maybe the fact that we're not getting an Okami sequel, or the fact that Capcom could afford to keep Clover Studio open despite the fact that they made great games. Most 360 fans don't say that because a game sells a lot it's better then the next. They do however, realize the importance of sales now, in the production of future titles.
Can't say anything about last gen since I didn't own a console. "And sales do matter because without them we wouldn't get new games" Actually that's why Sony has 1st party studios and doesn't rely on 3rd party exclusives as much. And we both know that fanboys of both sides down the competition it has nothing to do with PS3 fanboys worrying about the 360. 360 fans love to shout how all PS3 games flop because of low sales or they just right out lie and say that PS3 graphics suck. p.s. I never mentioned Killzone 2 in my original post. You drew that conclusion yourself.
Gears 2 looks amazing, you got to be kidding me. I just don't see the point of you clicking on the xbox tad, reading the news in the xbox section, and then posting negative comments. That just makes you look like a fanboy when you do stuff like that. How about clicking on the PS3 section and reading up on some news for the system you obviously love.
ignore rushin, he is a troll
By definition he is the epitome of Troll.
a great list of games.. not a great list of exclusives considering the superior version (by far) of NG2 is coming to PS3, L4D is on PC and the other games are bound for PC eventually too not a single concrete exclusive on that list @GameOn true, red blood will always beat some pu$sy purple essence.. it completely baffles me as to why Team Ninja would do that, i guess the lack of Itagaki is a double-edged sword... without him Team Ninja has gone soft, trying to get a teen rating.. i hope they reconsider though the point is though... i'd gladly trade meaningless gore for online co-op, two new playable characters, upgraded visuals,fixed technical issues, more enemies and more and bigger bosses that sounds like an awesome feature set right there and if the price is purple blood instead of red blood.. then so be it
The xbox version of NG2 may still have some "superior" aspects if they replace gore with purple essence in the PS3 version.
whatever help you sleep at night GameOn lol.
I'm just saying. They shouldn't be removing cool stuff like that.
To me, Left4Dead and Gears Of War are must-haves if you have friends. Otherwise, you may quickly evade it. Fable 2 is full of defaults but i agree that if you've never played the first one, it's a must-try. Crackdown and Mass Effect are both good games, especially for Mass Effect. Ninja Gaiden 2's camera is really hurting but the game is still awesome (and hard!). Maybe not to advise to everyone but it's still a fair game. And as always, i hated Halo 3 so i'll never recommend it, in whichever forms.
Got all except crappy NGII :)
How wrong you are...
I'll agree that all of those games (except NG2) are must own titles for the xbox 360, but they should have added Mass Effect to the list.
Why not NG2?
Thought the list would've had more, ME was missing though... One day perhaps I'll pick the 360 up.
Here's a little story: I'm always on the internet reading about video game news, and in the middle of fanboy wars, and I probably know more about video games than I should. Which is why, when I walked into a video game store with my friend some time ago, I thought I knew a little more than he did. He owns a 360, I do not. I know practically everything there is to know about the 360, he does not. I recommended Gears 2 to him, because that's the game every 360 owner on the internet raves about, but he wasn't interested. He didn't like the first one, so he didn't look at the second for more than a brief instant. Against my recommendation, he bought Star Wars: The Force Unleashed--and he enjoyed it. He picked Star Wars: TFU over Gears 2. So, must-haves, but for who? I'll tell you: internet geeks and xbots. If you're neither, then go pick up whatever the hell game you want and you'll enjoy it--and it probably WON'T be exclusive, by the way.
I also picked Star Wars: The Force Unleashed over Gears 2 but lately I'm thinking of buying Gears 2. I bought Fable 2 but returned it the next week for Fallout 3. Must haves are a relevant term. Every gamer is different and one gamer's trash is another's treasure.
I didn't say Gears of War 2 was an overrated failure, or the fact that LBP scored higher than Mass Effect, I just stated I would buy an xbox360 if I could. Whats wrong with that? I'm sure deep inside all of us would own all 2 consoles if we could right?
M A S S E F F E C T
Dead Rising Gears of War(First one) Mass Effect Fable 2 Forza Obviously there are more great exclusives for the system. Everyone has their own opinion, but this is my top five list.
gears 2 and halo 3 and left 4 dead is must have. evening though i dislike halo 3 its single player experience was fun.
Gaming isn't all about exclusives. It's about enjoying good games.
yup. max payne 3 ftw! bio shock 2 ftw!
Dead Space ftw
crackdown - open world forza 2 - sim racing pgr3 - arcade racing halo 3 - fps gears of war - tps fable - action adventure mass effect - wrpg NG2 - hack and slash halo wars - rts stoked - sport viva pinata - sim kameo - platforming lost odyssey - jrpg there, that list has pretty much every genre you could be interested in minus mmo, a bit of everything for everyone.
What the hell is that?
i would replace halowars with redalert 3
Xbox 360 has some games that I want to try out like: Star Ocean Gears of War 2 Mass Effect Lost Odyssey Fable 2 But the hardware is what keeps me from getting a 360. I just don't want it breaking on me, you know? I'll get one when MS fixes that problem.
I have all of those games. Oops, I don't have Star Ocean yet. I really would like to buy it though. Damn other bills!! In fact, I have about 130 xbox 360 games. I bought my console on day one, and it has never had a problem. If you buy one, and it dies, it'll be replaced for free. So, at the very least, if it dies, you can play what you have now while you wait for it be be fixed(less than 2 weeks.) I cannot count how many great games there are. I don't play all of my games(like old sports games), but I still play many of them. Oh, and I bought a ps3 the first week it came out, and I play it on occasion too. (I need to go play some Uncharted, cuz I never really got into it beyond the first hour) I just can't see myself reading about really cool games, and not being able to play them because of not buying the inexpensive hardware. I could do without my Wii, but I won't sell it, that's for sure. Hardware is the least of my worries when it comes to cost. It's keeping up with the great game releases!! That takes LOTS of cash! There's another list of must-have ps2 games floating around on this site somewhere. I have all of those games. It's most fun being a multiplatform gamer. Try it. You'll probably have a favorite console, but they all have something to offer. I still don't have any nintendo handhelds. I am probably missing out on some good games, but I have plenty to keep me busy now. Oh yeah, ONE LAST THING...If you do become a multiplatform gamer, be careful what you say on this website. If you disagree with fanboys, you'll pay the price. I only have 4 bubbles, and for NO GOOD REASON. For example, don't say ANYTHING negative about ANY Sony games, or you'll pay! You see, I'd rather play GeOW2 than KZ2. Me saying that negates everything I said before this, to the fanboys.
wack @ss list
...is great fun and should be in every 360 library.
4th of all L4D is not an 360 exclusive. 10th of all ninja gayden II is not an exclusive anymore, AND its not even the best version. Sigma II is going to have online co-op, 7th of all halo 3 was a huge disappointment.
