5. Dead Rising

It may have since been released on other consoles, but the original Dead Rising was the exclusive title that made me buy an Xbox 360. Loved for its quirky black humour and reluctance to take itself too seriously, Dead Rising is at its best – and most fun – when you’re creatively slaying the undead with everything and anything at your disposal. One of the most over-the-top and addictive survival horrors in gaming, and there are few boss fights as harrowing as Adam the Clown…

4. Lost Odyssey

If you’re a fan of traditional JRPG with hours to kill, look no further than this long, arduous journey. Filled with engrossing story that fleshes out all of its characters, a powerful turn-based strategy system, stunning presentation and a beautiful score, Lost Odyssey is a stunning masterpiece that excels across the board. This is a definitive JRPG that feels like a passionate throwback to the early masterpieces of the genre.

3. Gears of War

The original. The best. Gears of War is one of the most celebrated and beloved games on Microsoft’s home consoles thanks to its innovative gameplay, over-the-top action and brutal violence. This is a terrific game that holds up ridiculously well today, with a cinematic art style and addictive gameplay that remind us why we pumped so many hours into this title back when it was released. A masterpiece of action gaming.

2. Crackdown

Jumping from building to building across the skyline of Pacific City or throwing double-decker buses at gang-lords, Crackdown drops you in a crime-ridden urban playground with the tools to develop your own style of justice. Bursting with totally over-the-top action and a destructible environment to die for, Crackdown is one of the highlights of the Xbox 360 that plays just as well today as it ever has. A ridiculous legend of modern action gaming.

1. Halo 3

An early review of Halo 3 stated the game was ‘essential’ and that ‘an Xbox 360 without it was like a human without a heart’. To this day, the statement rings true. With stunning gameplay, endless replayability, incredible production values and the finest multiplayer on the console, Halo 3 is a gaming masterpiece that holds up as one of the finest titles ever released. Simply incredible across the board. It does not get any better.
