Waaow this is one of those topics that people can view in a lot of different ways, so instead of writing down a list of games that I personally think kick ass, I will look up a list of games that have been sold an immense amount of times and tell you why you should get it.
Red Dead Redemption
When you are looking to relive the old western world in sort of a GTA jacket, then Red Dead Redemption is one of the best games ever made. Packed with “missions” and side quests, Red Dead Redemption makes you live the old American days the way you choose to. Of course, there is a main storyline, but nobody usually cares for that and just wants to pick up a horse and blast their ways across the land. Another great thing about Red Dead Redemption is that there are loads of mini-games to play like, Texas hold em’, the knife bashing between the fingers and loads more. You will surely be entertained for a good 60 hours and you can make create your own reputation (sheriff or bandit) in a lot of the cities you will travel to.
One of the games that changed Xbox360 gamers’ lives forever are the Halo series which are famous and still being played everywhere in the world. Halo is a game where gamers assume the role of Masterchief as he tries to stop numerous of alien scum in destroying humanity. Although this sounds really interesting, I can’t help stop saying that people don’t buy Halo for the offline campaign (optional to play multiplayer) and usually go straight through to the many options for online play which are really rewarding. When looking for a nice game of zombies, CTF, Versus, King of the Hill and many other game modes, Halo is THE GAME for you.
One of the games that focuses on puzzling and comedy combined is Portal 2. Within Portal 2 there is a great single player campaign which will be entertaining for as long as you play. You receive this special gun to create sort of like wormholes and luckily you can create entrances and exits, and from that moment on you have to use your brain to make sure that you shut down the testing program that has a nasty attitude (and is very cynical, for a computer program) and tends to make fun of you all the time. When you feel bored by playing by yourself, there is also a very different multiplayer co-op campaign which will rock your world!
The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
One of the games that performs best and is definitely one of the most beautiful on the field of 1st and 3rd person RPG is Skyrim. Imagine yourself in a medieval world where magicians, knights, and archers tried to watch from mountain tops while trying to protect the lands and fight constantly to gain skills….. Welcome to Skyrim. Skyrim is full of quests and a rather compelling storyline which will keep you entertained for at least 80 hours of game time, next to the occasional dragon that drops by to try and kill you.
I know there are a lot of great games out there like Bioshock, COD7, MW3, Final Fantasy, Gears of War 3, but for now… out time is up! [url not allowed] for more consoles and video games reviews.
