Top Xbox 360 Games of All Time

The Xbox 360 is rightly considered one of the greatest consoles of all time. It was the console where multiplayer gaming rose to prominence, giving birth to the likes of Call of Duty and Gears of War skirmishes never seen before. The 360 also had the best controller gamers had ever placed in their palms, with asynchronous left and right analogue sticks making hand cramp a thing of the past.

Then, of course, there was the games. A lot of games. Over 1000 titles came to the console across retail and digital, more than 200 of them exclusive, meaning gamers were spoilt for choice every holiday season.

Trying to narrow down a library of over 1000 into a list of the best is no easy task, but VideoGamer has managed to select the best ever games to come to the Xbox 360. Did your favourites make the cut? Take a look to find out.
