The Xbox 360 is when Microsoft became a major player in the console space, with a larger outreach than its predecessor and three solid flagship franchises in Halo, Forza and Gears of War. While it suffered from issues like the Red Ring of Death in the early going – to say nothing of the later Kinect era – the seventh generation console still supported some amazing games in its lifespan. Let’s look at 15 of the best here.
Grand Theft Auto 5
Rockstar Games’ most successful title, Grand Theft Auto 5 redefined how detailed and lifelike open-world games could be. On top of its gorgeous visuals and intricate world, it pushed the boundaries of the franchise’s established formula with three protagonists, heists, activities like sports, hunting and racing, and memorable side stories. The fact that it achieved all of this on seventh-gen console hardware is a feat, that too without considering GTA Online.
