Dead Space 2

This product was recommended by Matthew Paxton from Hypernia

Despite being released way back in 2011, Dead Space 2 remains one of the best Xbox 360 games in my opinion. As a lover of all things horror, this sequel did not disappoint. It managed to provide an amazing survival horror experience all while keeping the action fresh and new, which can prove difficult especially in sequels.

Lego: Marvel Super Heroes

This product was recommended by Andy from Cloom

Smash, swing and fly in the first Lego video game featuring more than 100 of your favorite super heroes and super villains from the Marvel Universe, including Iron Man, Wolverine, Hulk, Spider-Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Loki and Deadpool. Perform new and powerful moves as “Big-fig” characters like Hulk and Abomination. Leave a path of destruction as you smash through Lego walls and throw cars using hyper strength.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

This product was recommended by Andy from Cloom

This is no ordinary race. Each character is equipped with their own unique vehicle that can transform into a car, boat and plane to take advantage of the changing terrains. Take to land, sea & air as you race through 16 dynamically changing courses inspired by SEGA’s illustrious gaming history. Race as one of the 20+ legendary All-Stars. The starting line-up has been transformed as new iconic characters from the world of SEGA join the race. Utilize an arsenal of devastating weapons which require skill to aim, shoot, evade and block.

Take 2 GTA V Grand Theft Auto 5

This product was recommended by Vinod Ravisankar from Vionix Studio

It is a classic action adventure game with an open world setting. You get to see the Rockstar Studios version of Los Angeles with lots of vehicle types, weapons and properties to purchase.

Borderlands 2

This product was recommended by James Vile from Gunskins

Xbox 360’s gaming options are truly expansive. There’s something for everyone: RPGs, shooters, sports games, you name it. One of my favorite games is from the Borderlands series: Borderlands 2. It combines humor, violence and adventure for an unforgettable experience.

BioShock Infinite

This product was recommended by Rachel Jones from Hope Health Supply

I’ve never had a game grab me the way Bioshock Infinite did. The gameplay is so engrossing and intense I often found myself staying up until 4am trying to complete a mission. And don’t even get me started on that ending.

Red Dead Redemption

This product was recommended by Rachel Jones from Hope Health Supply

I’m also a sucker for anything Western, so Red Dead Redemption is a game I recommend to everyone. The story is captivating, and you’ll be playing it over and over again. * Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

This product was recommended by Erik Pham from Healthcanal

Skyrim is perhaps one of the best games I’ve ever played both on the Xbox and on the PC. The world is very immersive and it has a simple but skill-based combat system where you have to time both your attacks and blocks right instead of the usual mash the “X” button on your controller until they are dead. But aside from the immersion that it gives, one of the best things about Skyrim are the mods that have been created by the fanbase. The game is so heavily moddable that even consoles like the Xbox have mods for them. With these mods, you can play the game however you want no matter how silly or serious it can be. There are quality-of-life mods and even dumb mods like making a Thomas the Train Engine just for fun. Overall, Skyrim is already a great game but with the inclusion of ods, it’s one of the best games out there until its sequel Elder Scrolls 6 comes out.
