Top Xbox 360 Rpg Games of All Time

The PS3/Xbox 360 era was a great time for role playing games. Fans were truly spoiled with some of the new IP that arrived over the console’s life cycle. Whether you liked the soul-crushingly difficult, the eye-meltingly beautiful or the heart-wrenching narratives, there was something to be played.

Unfortunately some of the generation’s best offerings suffered on Sony’s console. Skyrim was a notorious mess on PS3, giving players a less-than optimal experience of one of the best games of all time. Fallout: New Vegas also suffered, it seems that Bethesda is most certainly full of Xbox fans.

The Mass Effect trilogy eventually made it’s way to PlayStation 3, and continued to be an amazing collection of some of the finest space exploration in video games (we’re not going to discuss the controversial ending again, sorry).

With so many great RPGs to choose from, how did we narrow down our list and choose the favourites? Find out below.
