Your top 3 Xbox / Xbox 360 games ever (including rare titles)

Curious before I get a few more games what people's faves are. I've read reviews of the usual recommendations but sure there must be a few good ones that escape under the radar or which you consider better than is commonly accepted. Not thinking of online games, but if you do include them please mark them as such.

Just the names will do or include a brief reason why if you have the time. Thanks.

Good point - but maybe not. I'll add that to the title (Ikaruga is good, eh?) :thumbsup:

1)gears of war...............bit dead now but a brillant game
2)COD4........................online play is the best around just now
3)crackdown.................campaign is awesome

virtua tennis 3, love this game. really easy to pick up and much less fiddly than top spin. i can spend hours just playing the mini games. serving ten pin bowling being my favourite.

just one word of warning I thought i was pretty good at it regulary destroying my mates until i went online with it. boy did I get a reality check lol.

oh and call of duty 2 if you want a cheap great first person shooter.

Seeing as you asked for Xbox / Xbox 360......

Knights of the Old Republic

i hate halo bought it for £2 at blockbusters and i still havent completed the first mission after about a year of having it

GTA4 (obviously!)
PGR4
COD4

in fact anything with a '4' in!

For the more off-beat, try 'beautiful katamari'. Not as good as the two previous games on the ps2 since it adds nothing new to the gameplay but if you're new to the series its defiantly worth a look.

gta4 was a dissapointment

im going to get beautiful katamari but im waiting untill its cheap

I saw it for £12.99 in either the game or gameplay sale yesterday, worth a punt at that price!

GTA4 was was hyped to death, too many people expecting too much from it I think. I've got 80+ hours play under my belt and still going - I keep getting sidetracked from doing missions because I'm exploring!

Must admit I haven't played it for a while it might not have aged well, but It was ground breaking at the time. Probably the first fps on a console I actually enjoyed. They were usually pretty ****** ports of PC games till that point.

Also Psychonauts is well worth a shot, it's by the guy who was responsible for Monkey Island 1 & 2.

Max Payne
Prince of Persia : The Sands Of Time
Stubbs the Zombie

That's 3 that spring to mind. Farcry Instincts Evolution is a laugh if you play it on Xlink.

thanks for all respones so far. Going to consider 'beautiful katamari' - looks interesting - and these are new for me Jade Empire & Knights of the Old Republic - virtual tennis 3 sounds good too - the others I have or know already :thumbsup: EDIT: and thanks shengis, your response came in at the same time. Pity I didn't pick up max payn yesterday then from Darthballs...

Couldn't get into that but it has just reminded me of Destroy all Humans :w00t:

Is Max Payne compatible with the 360? Is it one of those slow-mo shooting games. Absolutely love them LOL.

Stranglehold was awesome but too short!

Also does anyone know if True Crime Streets of LA is a slow-mo shooter/GTA sTYLE game?

Liddle ol' me;2504994

and these are new for me Jade Empire & Knights of the Old Republic



They are probably two of my favorite games ever, on any platform, both from BioWare (as in Mass Effect - which is not as good imho), both multiple award winners.

EDIT: Should warn that there are some story spoilers in there..........might be best not to read if you plan to play as the stories are what make the games great.

Xbox 360

PGR 4... just the greatest racing game ever.

FIFA 08...was a pro evo fan until 2008, this is first fifa i have purchased and when u get used to it, it has so much depth.

Original Xbox.

FABLE...possibly my favourite game ever

GTA SA...Best gta ever

BLACK...not into shooters but this one is superb (better then any COD games)

I would say Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee is much better. Very similar to the classic Oddworld series on the PS1. It is compatible with the 360 as well. Must buy in my opinion!

1. Call Of Duty 4
2. Gears Of War
3. Bioshock

others which are close are: GTA4, Assassins Creed, GH3

Gears Of War
COD4
GRAW2

GRAW2 is by far the better of the 2 i though, although they are very similar. I just found GRAW2 a lot easier to play and it just felt 'smoother'.

Saying that though if you enjoy the 2nd one and want some more of the same, you can pick up the first one for under a tenner second hand!

black was rubbish i waited ages for it to come out and it was a big dissapointment no way is it better than any COD
i only completed the first mission which took me about 1.5 hrs and i thought 1.5hrs with bearly any fighting and no save points

but i agree GTA:SA is the best one
