These are the dog days of summer and as such pickings are slim for new videogames. What better time to look at the Xbox 360's sizable library and find the very best games to play? Over the summer, IGN is going to take a look at a bevy of gaming genres and determine the five games everyone needs to play. And as fair warning, they are giving you five games to avoid (or throw away).
IGN is kicking things off with the genre that really defines the 360. Because Halo was so synonymous with the original Xbox, most folks associate the Xbox 360 with first-person shooters. And with good reason. Some of the very best games on the entire system are shooters. And, unfortunately, so are some of the worst.
