Xbox 360: The End Of An Gaming Era
Microsoft announced today that they would stop production of the Xbox 360. Microsoft said that they will continue to support the Xbox 360 for some time. That being said all stores will continue to sell the Xbox 360 until supplies sell out. After an incredible ten year lifespan the Xbox 360 has earned itself a place in my top gaming consoles of all time. After all, the Xbox 360 has some amazing games that deserves to be recognized. But all good things come to an end, and it is now time to embrace the current generation. This top five list is in honor and celebration of the Xbox 360.
5. Assassin’s Creed 2: The sequel to the smash hit Assassin’s Creed was one of those rare cases where the sequel was better than the original. Out of all the Assassin’s Creed games to this date; I spent the most time and earned the most achievements with AC2.
4. Call of Duty Black Ops 2: Now I know many people like to hate on Call of Duty, but Black Ops 2 is only on this list because of Zombies alone. That being said, my buddies and I spent countless hours killing the hordes of the undead, and no Zombies game has come close to how great the second Black Ops was.
3. Red Dead Redemption: If there’s one thing that Rockstar does very well, it’s making addicting open world games. The bottom line is if you like games like Grand Theft Auto and other similar games, then Red Dead Redemption needs to be in your collection.
2. Portal 2: By far Portal 2 is one of my favorite games of all time. Not only does Portal 2 have fun and challenging puzzles, but it’s actually has some very funny characters in it too. I loved how the game incorporates physics into the puzzles, so if you like puzzles and the Half-Life Universe then this is the game for you.
1. Grand Theft Auto 5: Everytime developers have time and experiences with an console the end result is almost always a great game, and GTA 5 is no exception. When it came down to story, graphics, and in game physics GTA 5 nails it, so if you’re thinking about getting a last minute 360 then GTA 5 is a perfect choice.
