The XBox 360 has been replaced by the XBox One but it has in its catalogue of titles many games that are worth a visit. Despite its unusually short lifespan (it was launched in 2001 and the Xbox 360 arrived in 2005), the Xbox has welcomed a host of enviable exclusives. Some of them may even be released again on Xbox One with the recent announcement that backward compatibility will arrive on Microsoft’s third console. Even if this is not the case, you must play the following titles.
This ranking of the 5 best video games released on XBox 360 will allow you to take a look at the most striking games of this console.
Mass Effect 2
Mass Effect on Xbox 360 is a futuristic role-playing game in which you create your character and then launch it into an extremely rich and vast scenario across the entire galaxy. Navigate between the different planets and races that inhabit them to complete quests and participate in intergalactic battles. In addition, with Mass Effect: Andromeda, this is the perfect time to revisit the rest of the series.
The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
Skyrim still sounds like a promise of exploration. Here, every cave, tomb, forest or city is full of details to discover. This episode marked the improvement of a formula established by Bethesda over iterations of the saga The Elder Scroll. There is clearly a before and after Skyrim in the world of open-world role-playing, a key moment at the end of 2011 when the general public discovered for the first time the vast and cold expanse of Bordeciel in the role of the Dovahkiin.
Portal 2 is a 360° puzzle game. This one features the heroine of the first part, who must once again escape GLaDOS in the Aperture Science complex. By using Portal Gun, players will be confronted with new traps and will have to make good use of a paint that can modify the characteristics of the different surfaces encountered. The novelty remains the possibility to play it with 2 players.
The next episode also features a strong cooperative campaign that allows two players to place four portals simultaneously, allowing the Valve developer to explore inspired puzzles.
Red Dead Redemption
Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 was a bomb in 2018, giving us access to open world in the western style we had hoped for. You play Arthur Morgan, a gun holder of the famous Van Der Linde gang through the trials and tribulations he experienced during his conquest of the West.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is a game that will keep you busy for a long time. Between the main missions, mini-games, activities and secondary quests, you will find yourself immersed in this title for a whole bunch of hours without even realizing it. And with Red Dead Online in beta test, it won’t be long before you team up with a handful of friends to play.
Batman: Arkham City
Batman: Arkham City is perhaps the best comic book game ever concocted. This captivating story attracts you from the moment you hear the Joker, and then adds superb puzzles and combat mechanisms that exploit a multitude of weapons emblematic of Batman’s arsenal. In the follow-up to Arkham Asylum, in 2009, batman was trapped in a condemned, abandoned and prisoner-populated neighbourhood of Gotham City, including several emblematic Batman villains, each with their own plans to thwart Bat. Arkham City follows the same “one-night game” pattern, Batman having been poisoned by the Joker, he must find a way to heal himself before the end of the night.
