Whether you like playing first-person shooting games or you are thrilled by auto-racing, Xbox 360 offers a tremendous lineup of games across a wide variety of genre to suit your personality and taste.

Ever since the first official release of the original Xbox, no one was confident that one day Microsoft will dominate the home console business. Although the original Xbox was not a great hit and there were doubts about its success, but the scene changes when Microsoft introduced Xbox 360 in the market. Soon after its official release in 2005, Xbox 360 managed to become one of the best-selling gaming consoles in the world. It’s been more than thirteen years since the retail launch of Xbox 360, but its fame and popularity have only increased over the years. This is because this gaming console has offered hundreds of award-winning games to the video game lovers over all these years and the story continues to date. Although it is an extremely difficult task to pick and choose the best Xbox 360 games since all of them deserve the top ranks, here is a list of a few games that can be regarded as the most outstanding, popular, exciting, and just plain fun games of all times:

  • BioShock

Although Microsoft has released a series of BioShock game for the Xbox 360, the later sequels failed to gain as much fame as the first one. It is a first-person shooter game which offers you to use an array of deadly weapons and tactics never seen before. The first edition of the Bioshock takes you to the underwater city of Rapture where you are faced with creepy enemies and unknown creatures. The only way you can survive in this deep underwater world is to biologically modify your DNA and have access to superhuman powers. Although initially, it may seem like a simple first-person shooter game like any other game out there, as you proceed in the story, you will find it more interesting and extremely challenging.

  • Mass Effect

Just like BioShock, the Mass Effect series holds no parallels when it comes to most favorite Xbox 360 games of all times. If you like playing fiction games, this game series is meant for you. Mass Effect games will take you into a futuristic universe where you will face many aliens.  The Mass Effect game series is developed by a Canadian company named BioWare.
