10 Xbox 360 Games That Will Enjoy Many Years On Your Shelf


If you’re looking for games to add to your Xbox 360 collection, there’s no shortage of great options. Many of the most popular games in the marketplace are excellent choices that will provide hours of entertainment. However, if you’re looking for a list of games that you can feel confident purchasing even if they’ve been out for several years or aren’t on your radar yet but should be, look no further. The following titles are all reasonably priced and have stood the test of time as some of the best video games on the market:


BioShock is a first-person shooter video game developed by Irrational Games and published by 2K Games. The game was released for Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360 on August 21, 2007. Set in 1960, the game puts the player in the role of Jack, a plane crash survivor who must explore an underwater art deco dystopia called “Rapture” that was sunken from view after World War II. It has been heralded as one of the best games ever made and won several awards for its atmosphere and story.[1][2]

Mass Effect 3

Mass Effect 3 is an action role-playing game, developed by BioWare and published by Electronic Arts. It was released on March 6, 2012 for the Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. The Wii U version was released on November 18, 2012 in North America and November 30, 2012 in Europe.

The story focuses primarily on Commander Shepard (voiced by Mark Meer or Jennifer Hale) who leads an elite team of military specialists fighting against a race of ancient mechanical beings known as Reapers who are bent on wiping out all organic life in the galaxy. Players continue from where they left off at the end of Mass Effect 2 as Commander Shepard must lead his/her crew against overwhelming odds to save Earth and all life within our galaxy from being destroyed by these machines that are intent on wiping out all organic life forms from existence!

Portal 2

If you’re looking for a game that will provide hours of fun, then I would highly recommend Portal 2. This game is considered by many to be one of the best games available on Xbox 360.

Portal 2 features an addicting gameplay style that requires players to solve puzzles using a gun that can create portals in walls, floors and ceilings. Using this tool you need to navigate each level while avoiding obstacles like turrets or lasers which shoot at you if they see you. The main story revolves around a character named Chell who must escape Aperture Science Laboratories after being tricked into going there by GLaDOS (Genetic Lifeform and Disk Operating System), who wants Chell dead so she can finally leave the lab herself.

The graphics look great when compared with other games developed for the same console; however some may find them too dark at times because most rooms are only lit by lamps with glowing eyes attached to them rather than lights overhead like most buildings have today due to their lack of power supply other than batteries within their own bodies (which makes sense since these things live underground).

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

My favorite thing about this game is that it has excellent graphics and sound. The sound is great, especially the background music.

The game has a lot of replayability because there are many different quests you can take on, and lots of things to do in the world of Skyrim. The story isn’t as good as some other games’ stories (like Mass Effect), but it’s still okay for me—it’s not bad at all!

There are also many other games in this series if you like this one: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Xbox 360), The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (Xbox), and even The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall (PC).

Grand Theft Auto IV

This game has it all: great storyline, amazing graphics, and the gameplay is just as good. The characters are memorable and realistic. The soundtrack fits perfectly with the game’s tone and style. It also has plenty of replay value and multiplayer options if you’re into that sort of thing (which we aren’t).

The sandbox nature of this game makes it ideal for someone who wants to do whatever they want in a big city without worrying about consequences or limitations on activity outside of missions or sidequests.


Minecraft is an open-world game in which you survive by mining and crafting, build structures such as houses and fortresses, fight monsters and explore the world around you.

There are many modes of play including survival, creative and adventure mode. In survival mode your goal is to gather resources while avoiding hostile mobs like zombies or skeletons. You have to eat food in order to stay alive, hunt animals for food or craft weapons so that you can defend yourself from the monsters roaming around your world.

The game uses blocks as its basic building unit instead of bricks or other materials used in other games. The player can use these blocks to create almost anything they want provided they have enough materials at hand – be it a castle with towers or an underground cave network full of lava lakes!

Red Dead Redemption

Red Dead Redemption is a Western-themed action-adventure game developed and published by Rockstar San Diego. It was released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in May 2010, and it’s the second game in the Red Dead series after 2004’s Red Dead Revolver.

The player controls John Marston, an outlaw who is forced to hunt his former gang members by federal agents looking to capture or kill him. The gameplay consists of third-person shooting mechanics, open world exploration and horseback riding using ragdoll physics that allow you to shoot from your horse. The story is split into chapters and missions that can be completed in any order you choose; however there are some overarching goals (such as earning money or completing side quests) that must be met before continuing onward with the plot.

Gears of War 2

Gears of War 2 is a third-person shooter that was developed by Epic Games and published by Microsoft Studios. It was released in 2008. The game takes place on the fictional planet Sera, where humans have been fighting against the Locust Horde for many years. You play as Marcus Fenix, an ex-solider who leads a group of soldiers called Delta Squad (also known as C Company) on a mission to find his father and save humanity from their enemies.

Borderlands 2

Borderlands 2 is one of the best games on the Xbox 360 and it’s no surprise that it has stood the test of time. It has a great storyline with many twists and turns, but not so many that it gets confusing or frustrating to follow. The characters are all engaging, funny, and relatable—and each character in your team has their own specific personality that makes them stand out from one another (even if they’re all technically robots). The graphics are phenomenal; they’re detailed enough to show off all of your enemies’ different features but don’t distract from gameplay at all. Voice acting is also well-done; it sounds natural and expressive without being overbearing or annoying. Gameplay is fun and addictive as you shoot enemies while collecting loot along your way; there are many different types of guns in Borderlands 2 which drastically change how each weapon feels when used by different characters. You can also replay levels at any time if you want to try out other weapons or try again for higher scores by completing challenges such as killing an enemy with his own explosive barrel! And finally, there’s plenty of DLC available for this game too!

Dark Souls

If you’re looking to play a game that will keep you on your toes and get your adrenaline pumping, Dark Souls is the game for you. It’s not an easy game to master, but it’s very rewarding when you do. Go ahead and give it a shot—there are no wrong answers here!

You’ll want to play this one with a controller rather than using the Xbox One controller layout. That may seem strange at first, since this is an Xbox 360 title, but rest assured: there are many benefits of using a traditional console controller over using your keyboard or mouse. The best part about playing Dark Souls with other people is that if one person gets stuck somewhere in the game (which happens often), then their friends can come over and help them out if needed by joining their world via multiplayer mode or offering advice through voice chat features like Discord or Skype!

The best way we’ve found so far has been simply taking turns sleeping at night while keeping vigilant watch during daylight hours. Not only does this allow everyone involved some much-needed rest after working hard all day long; it also gives each person enough time alone so they can recharge before heading back out into battle again tomorrow morning.”
