The best Xbox 360 games ever made

Newly updated and recalibrated, read our list of the best games to ever grace the Xbox 360

Microsoft's best-selling console served up some seriously amazing games. Here are our top ten favorites ever...

10. Batman: Arkham City

The most well rounded game of Rocksteady's peerless Dark Knight trilogy. Not only is gliding around a chunk of Gotham great fun, but City boasts one of the boldest endings ever.

9. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

The most important Call of Duty game of all time is also the one that put the series back on the sales-conquering map. Without it? There would probably be no COD Warzone. 

8. Halo Reach

Bungie’s last Halo game is also its greatest… at least in terms of single-player campaigns. Reach remains the boldest and best Halo ever made. The 360 was lucky to have it.

Officially, GTA 5 is the most successful entertainment product of all time. Unofficially? No surprises, it also happens to be one of the best video games ever made.

5: The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim

A fantasy RPG that will swallow your whole life. With hundreds of hours of engaging quests and a richly realized world, Bethesda's best ever game is also one of the Xbox 360's finest.

4. Portal

What began as a student demo grew into one of the Xbox 360's most unforgettable games. Portal achieves an astoundingly rich atmosphere through a great script and clever puzzles.

3. BioShock

2: Mass Effect 2

One of the best sequels ever is also very nearly best game on the Xbox 360. Expertly raising the stakes of the original and tightening every mechanic, this sci-fi RPG is a masterpiece.
