CVG: We've stuck five games that we think knock the spots off of the above that Microsoft and the Xbox brand can call entirely their own.
Halo CE Forza 3 Ninja gaiden Alan Wake Shadow complex
Ninja Gaiden Sigma is on the PS3 so being that Sigma is a updated version to Ninja Gaiden Black, you do not have to count that as an exclusive, unless you want to.
the fact its different means its still exclusive
#2 Halo 3 #3 Forza 3
That's not really fair because you could then point out that a game like Ocarina of Time was later ported to other Nintendo systems. Does it not count as a great Nintendo 64 exclusive then?
Halo 3 at #2?? At least put Gears up there, haha :D
They put Crackdown up there? And Halo 3 instead of Reach?
Mass Effect series is now on PS3. Fable 2 got 80s average score. CrackDown was mid 80s but CrackDown2 was a fail. Only games worth mentioning is maybe Halo 3 and Gears 2
Now while the list you gave is fine you have to remember exclusive means that it's only available on one console. So for something to be Xbox exclusive means it's not also available on the PC. That is not very many games actually. For MS though it's a win win since they make money for selling it on both platforms.
Mass Effect is an exclusive? I played that on PC.
Mass Effect 2. oh wait...
Also on PC even if it wasnt on the PS3 so FAILED troll GTFO
IaMs12's got a point. I never considered Mass Effect, 1 or 2, an Xbox exclusive.
1.Halo CE 2.Halo 2 3.Halo 3 4.Halo ODST 5.Halo Reach Whoa........that's deep.... Edit: oh darn, that's right, Halo CE and Halo 2 were multiplat on PC.........my list equals fail :D
I miss Halo 2... )':
Forza 3 halo reach alan wake crackdown splinter cell
Absolutely appalled at no mention of Gears of War 1 in some of your lists, or Mass Effect for that matter. Edit: In no certain order... Games I've enjoyed on the Xbox: Halo series Gears series Splinter Cell series Mass Effect series Ghost Recon series Keep in mind, I have enjoyed other games like Forza, Alan Wake, & Shadow Complex, etc. too just wanted to list my top 5 favorite game series.
I do believe that Mass Effect is not a 360 exclusive since its on the PC
From the article: "Ok, we admit that a few of these hit the PC as well. Think of this as a list of games that PlayStation faithful can't get their hands on - then everyone's a winner" So an "exclusive" for 360 is just a game on any platform except PS3? I'm pretty sure that's not what the word means but hey, whatever gets you through the night.
so they have to redefine definitions to consider 2 = 1. CVG finally admits they are 360 fangirls with that comment as well.
its still a console exclusive
I think some people need to look up the definitions for the words console and exclusive.
Disagreeing sure is a lot easier than looking up that definition I guess. Taken from dictionary.com. games console: an electronic device used in playing computer games on the screen of a television to which it is connected exclusive: noting that in which no others have a share Guess that means if it's on the PC as well as one of the consoles it's not actually exclusive
yeah errr, this is why I prefer my PS3. He list ME1. Oh how he wishes he could list ME2 instead lol.
Err, what? What's it got to do with the ps3? EDIT:Oh yeah, I forgot. The ps3 is getting ME2 a year later after all the 360 and pc gamers have played it to death. Egg on my face.
"Err, what? What's it got to do with the ps3?" The quality of software is as clear as night and day, and not comparable to the PS3 "The ps3 is getting ME2 a year later after all the 360 and pc gamers have played it to death. Egg on my face." Do you think 360 owners would be complaining if they could play Uncharted 2 a year later?
If they cared they'd get a ps3. And the quality is no different to any other games that get released on other systems. I've played better games on my pc than the games I've played on ps3. There are games just as good on other systems. PS3 exclusives aren't the be all and end all of gaming. As much as I loved UC2, it was a short-lived experience. After the SP it doesn't have much to offer to the SP person.
ME1 is way better than ME2. ME2 is a shooter, not an rpg.
Did you play ME2? ME2 was better in every way, including the RPG portion.
Mass Effect >>>> Mass Effect 2
Mass Effect is much better. They stripped out most of the RPG with ME2. Hopefully 3 brings it back for all to enjoy.
its Halo CE, Halo 2, Halo 3, Gear of War 1,and Halo Reach (That's a lot of Halo)
Halo CE, Halo 2, and Gears of War are all available on PC. Kind of hard to be the "best Xbox exclusives of all time" if they are not "Xbox exclusives". Also, none of those games are listed in the article. Four out of the five games on the list are not available anywhere except Xbox hardware, making them "Xbox exclusives". Mass Effect technically should not be on their list.
Fable II and crackdown? I would honestly take something like halo wars over crackdown lol gears of war 1 > 2 imo
The first Crackdown was awesome! I spent so much time on that game. The 2nd Crackdown, not so much. lol! Halo Wars is a completely different game. If you prefer an RTS over a shooter then naturally you would pick Halo Wars.
No i know what games they are and its not like that 1 spot was reserved for an action/adventure open world game haha no I honestly meant I'd take something like halo wars over crackdown because I didn't like crackdown (fair enough) and figured I'd pick another game that didnt go well with critics (even though I had fun with halo wars for a little while lol)
Gears of War 1 Lost Odyssey Halo Wars Mass Effect 1 Magna Carter 2
Amen people sleep on magna carta 2 but it is one of the best rpgs of the gen. LOVE that game. Lost odyssey is the best.
Good list. I own them all. Lost Odyssey should replace Crackdown though. Crackdown was fun... but not "top 5" fun.
>xbox 360 >exclusive >struggling for variety of TRUE EXCLUSIVES >i laugh hard A DAMN SHAME I MIGHT SAY 1.WRPG(i had it hate it. it literally put me to sleep. i'm never buying a wrpg ever again) 2.FPS(i had it. it was a fun game nothing bad to say it was pretty solid) 3.TPS/WRPG(don't like mass effect) 4.TPS(the only series i love on xbox 360) 5.TPS/SANDBOX(never played) anyone see a pattern here? @below I'm talking about EXCLUSIVES not MULTIPLATFORM GAMES.
but xbox fans mostly only care for shoota.
So you've never played Grand Theft Auto in your whole life? lol, get out.
Fable II over Jade Empire or KOTOR? Seriously?
Agreed. What the heck?!? Jade Empire and KOTOR were incredible!
KOTOR was on PC and was far superior
TABSF. I disagree dude. I have the PC version of Kotor, and no lie, it crashes every half hour on me. If you go on Bioware's official forum page for Kotor, you'll see that everyone has complained about this, and no amount of patching from Bioware has ever helped fix the crashing issues. For that reason alone, the console version of Kotor is superior.
Both were on the PC and better on the PC I might add. Never had any problem with KOTOR crashing on me.
Personally: 1. Gears of War 2 2. Alan Wake 3. Bully: Scholarship Edition (I know it's on the Wii and PC, but still. I want a PS3 version NOW!) 4. Metro 2033 (I have it on PC, but someone without a beastly machine won't be able to play it very well.) 5. Blood Wake (I hope you guys remember this gem. It was amazing! Wow...that actually took me awhile to think of some.
HOLY SWEET JESUS. You wheren't joking about Metro 2033 requirements. Does it emulate a ubuntu machine which with in that emulates a windows machine then emulates the xbox 360?
The sony defense force is in here trying to downplay anything xbox related. Too bad all your games suck, and have to spend all your time trolling every article. The 360 has the best games imo. I don't give a rats ass if some of these games are also available on the pc. I don't game on a pc. I game on consoles. Stop saying that xbox fans only care about shooters. Last time I checked, the top selling ps3 games are mult-platform shooters. Just like the highest pre orders, are also multi-platform shooters. Ps3 exclusives that you guys love so much, sell like shit compare to shooters.
I understand that's your opinion... ...but your opinion sucks. God of War 3, Metal Gear Solid 4, Heavy Rain, Uncharted, Uncharted 2, 3D Dot Game Heroes, Sports Champions, Demon's Souls, Siren: Blood Curse, Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time, inFamous, Resistance 1 & 2, Killzone 2, MAG, Motorstorm 1 & 2, and Warhawk all suck now? Then what have I been enjoying for four years? :,(
It's funny that Halo, Halo 2, Fable, Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Gears of War 1 dont count cuz theyre also on the PC (and PS3 for ME 2) lol
Mass Effect was on PC plus it was far superior
Gears of War Gears of War 2 Gears of War 3 (soon) Mass Effect 1 Crackdown. 5 Reason I have an Xbox. Have like 10 360 games. I really need to add to the collection soon.
Good list. Those are the reasons people SHOULD buy a 360. I can't wait for Gears 3!
I know man that game is going to be so sick.
Always those damned top this lists... Find NEWS N4G!
pgr4 forza 3 gears 2 halo reach fable
Halo Reach Forza 3 Gears 2 forza 2 alan wake Those that put gears 1, mass effect, or whatever game that was on PC is not exclusive. Stop treating PC games as nothing and consoles are what only matter.
I couldn't think of five lol
Lost Odyssey Blue Dragon Magna Carta 2 Infinite Unidiscovery (i know people did not like it but i love me some JRPGs) Spectrum Force 3(love these types of games; that is why Disaega 3, is one of the games I wish the 360 had) Nija Blade (under rated IMHO) Ninja Gaiden 2 (Different that Sigma, since they took the gore out of it..too bad because the gore was important for the experience) All the Halos (Halo 3, Halo Reach, Halo ODST, and Halo Wars) and the Gear (Gear of War 1 and 2, and soon 3)games of course Crackdown 1 (super fun) Crackdown 2 (too much of the same, but fun nontheless) Shadow Complex (fantastic game. If you loved the original metroid u should play this now!) Perfect Dark Zero (has not aged well, but when it came out it was awsome) Fable 2 (and soon Fable 3) this is one of my favorite games! Forza 2 and 3 (not a sim fan, but they were fun nontheless) Mass Effect 1 Naruto: Broken Bond Naruto: Rise of the Ninja (these two Naruto games by Ubisoft are fantastic and horribly underrated) Call of Duty 2 (awsome campaign, but also for the PC so I guess it does not count in the minds of the sony extremist) Deathsmiles (awsome shooter) Raiden 1-4 (fantastic shooters as well) Dead or Alive 4 PGR4 and of course the wonderful Alan Wake! these are 360 exclusives (except about two which are also on the PC) I really like and this is off the top of my head and I did not include arcade (except Shadow Complex, but for me its more than an arcade). o I forgot Conviction (fantastic game, and I know its on the PC, but as a console only gamer who the F$%k cares :) ) peace!
For me it is: Halo: Reach Gears of War 2 Fable II Alan Wake Crackdown 2
I'd have gone. Halo Reach Gears 2 Fable 3 Left 4 Dead Mass Effect The list could go on and on, some of the most underrated games of this generation are on the 360. Blue Dragon, Lost odyssey, Forza, Project Gotham, Viva Pinata, Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts, Alan Wake, Metro 2033 etc...
this should of been titled best 360 exclusives. its sad that they never mention the original xbox nor its games. XBOX HAS NO CLASSICS thus explaning why they never bother to remake any of their old games.
Here: 1. Phantom Dust (most underrated game right here) 2. Lost Odyssey 3. KOTOR 4. Halo CE/Halo Reach 5. Gear of War 6. Forza 7. Alan Wake 8. Splinter Cell conviction 9. Fable
