Best Xbox 360 Games

This is my list of My Favorite Xbox 360 games.

5. Halo 3 - No doubt this is an Xbox classic, ever since the golden days. One of everyone's favorite games, only available on the Xbox. This game is the core of MLG, the only organization that pays people for competitive gaming, and no doubt takes tons of skill and knowledge of the game. This game will live in our hearts for years to come, and everyone has had their share of moments on it.

4. Gears of War 2 - Another Xbox exclusive game, this one was extremely popular for a short time, and is very skill-oriented. This game is also a classic, it bridges the first game to a new and exciting story mode. Multiplayer is also a revolutionary idea, and has inspired successful games such as Uncharted on the Playstation 3. I was happy to see this win a few awards years back. This is a game I would pick up any day.

3. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - Everyone I know that owns an Xbox, owns or has owned a copy of this game. It is a favorite among gamers, and has proven itself a replayable game, with addicting Multiplayer and an amazing story. This is one of the few games with Modern Warfare, most games before this took place in previous wars, such as World War 1 and 2. This game was revolutionary when it first came out, and inspired many other developers to work on the same concept. Ive clocked over 20 Days on Multiplayer, and that number will go up as long as I live.

2. Oblivion: The Elder Scrolls IV - This game was the biggest revolution of the time, with over 5 days of gameplay to complete the story and all side missions, and with several Downloadable Content available, extending its gameplay several days. I believe I have beaten this game 4 to 5 times, and it never gets old. I have spent a lot of money on the Downloads, and I believe it is money well spent. This is another requirement for anyone's game library.

1. Grand Theft Auto IV - This is the highest rated game in the Xbox library, and for good reasons. Most sites give it a 10/10, for addicting Story and multiplayer modes. This game sold more copies than Halo 3 even, the most anticipated game of the century. This game comes extremely cheap now, as everyone traded it in a few years ago. Nevertheless, it is a great game, and should be considered when you buy another game.

Honorable Mentions:

Guitar Hero 3 - Everyones favorite, people from 8-80 years old have played this game, and was extremely fun at the time.

Fallout 3 - Similar to Oblivion, but based in Wasteland-Washington D.C. Everything has been Destroyed, and it is an addicting struggle to stay alive. I have clocked over 80 hours on this game, and still have not completed everything.

Dragon Age Origins - A more recent game, but is also very addicting, I have beaten this game several times, and plan on beating it again.

Assassins Creed 2 - Another recent game, and it is extremely fun. A must have for anybody, as it improved on the flaws of the last game.

Anyway, I could go on forever, but I wanted to give my opinion, so thanks for reading, and please check out my other content!
