    Recommend Xbox 360 games

    As we have a recommend PS3 thread already I thought it would be interesting to also start one for the Xbox 360, listing games exclusive to the system and also cross platform games that are viewed as being the best on the 360 (after all quite a few games are now developed on the platform and then ported to the PC and PS3).

    Recommended Games:

    This is initially a list of the game I know about. One thing that strikes me from making this initial list is that whilst there are a lot of great games for the 360 (it has been available since 2005 after all), there are not that many exclusive titles. Or have I missed some more good ones out?

    Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning are not 360 exclusive, I have them for the PS3.

    There's still 2 nice older RPGs you forgot, 360 exclusive, Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey.

    True, it's not out till October, but thought it worth included.

    @DC added those and amended the others. Any other RPGs for the 360? If there are quite a few maybe we should start a new 360 RPG thread list?

    Yes, AC III will be a hell of a good game. I've seen some pre-videos.

    There's also still Infinite Undiscovery which is exclusive to the 360, but I think it didn't get very good reviews.

    Added it to the list.

    Had a quick read of some reviews for Infinite Undiscovery and it scored just above average 6-7/10 scores. From the makers of Star Ocean though so might be worth a play, even with some inconsistencies mentioned in the reviews (some cut scenes are voice acted, whilst others are subtitled only... but we are used to that from previous console generation so that is definitely not something I would be annoyed too much about). Other issues mentioned include bad lip-syncing, which again doesn't bother me, having played a lot of JRPGs where the original Japanese lip-syncing is overdubbed into English so don't sync at all. Not exactly reasons alone to avoid the game. The trailers also look quite good.

    Having a Google about I've found a few more I've also now added into the list.

    I must say I'm a little underwhelmed by the number of exclusive titles the 360 has to offer after all these years... I actually think the PS3 looks a better system for exclusives. Also many people keep saying the 360 is the RPG system of this generation, so where are all the exclusive RPGs? Most are also available on the PS3.

    Part of the reason is that Microsoft has been focusing on timed exclusives this time round. Many of the games that are now available on both consoles were only available on the 360 for the first 3-6 months.

    That is very true. However does this really work in their favour? Yes the 360 sees the games first, but then the PS3 gets its multi-disc games released 3-12 months later on a single BD so no disc swapping needed, plus bug fixed and often any DLC included from the outset on the disc too. I suppose for those hardcore games who must have a new game upon release, with the 360 getting the games first they will buy them for that platform. For the rest of us we can wait until all versions are out, then buy the best version or buy for the platform that best suits the playing style.

    F.ex, looking at the list of games above, there are a lot of them that are FPS and all available on the PC. I would much rather play though with a Keyboard/mouse combo than a gamepad any day.

    I was just a little surprised once I looked that the 360 really doesn't offer that much to entice someone who already owns a PS3... or for that matter a PC. Forza i really the only game that entices me from that list. And maybe the GoW and Halo titles.
