Top Xbox 360 Adventure Games of All Time

Perhaps the world's greatest living adventurer is Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the former British Army officer turned explorer.

Fiennes was the first person to travel to he North and South Poles by surface and also the first to cross Antarctica on foot. At the age of 65 he climbed Mount Everest, and in 1984 was recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records.

The man is so tough that in 2000 he suffered severe frostbite to the tips of his left hand fingers in a failed solo attempt at walking to the North Pole. Advised by doctors to wait several months before amputating, in order to allow for the regrowth of any healthy tissues, Fiennes decided to do his own thing and cut off the necrotic fingertips with a fretsaw.

Now imagine doing all this with an Xbox 360 strapped to your back and you're nowhere near visualising the best Xbox 360 adventure games of all time. For that you better check out the list below.
