Still the pinnacle of a story-driven game, Bioshock remains one of my most memorable games of all time. The number of times that the game made my jaw drop still has not been topped.
2. Call of Duty 2
Forget about MW2. Call of Duty 2 was where it all started for me. It proved to me that first person shooters can be done well on a console.
3. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Incredibly addictive, beautiful graphics, and endless numbers of dungeons to visit.
4. Eternal Sonata
Enough can't be said about Eternal Sonata's impressive and lush visual style which shows what artistic design can bring to a gaming experience. That said, it's combat system was a perfect balance of turn-based tactics and real time action.
5. Gears of War
A visual knockout and THE reason why I bought a 360. Probably remains one of the best reasons to buy a 360.
6. Grand Theft Auto IV
GTA IV was not only a fun open-world game but carried an emotional resonance that was far greater than any other game in its genre, or even games as a whole.
7. Halo 3
An engaging single-player campaign and deep multi-player makes this game a complete package for both Halo fans and fans of shooters in general.
8. Marvel Ultimate Alliance
The perfect compilation of all things Marvel in a uniquely fun and creative package. The better of the two MUA games remains one of the best action-adventure games on the 360.
9. Tales of Vesperia
Arguably the best JRPG on the 360, ToV still interests to this day with its fast-paced and surprisingly deep combat, simple but attractive art design, likable characters, and interesting, if somewhat contrived story.
10. Viva Piñata
VIva Pinata proved that a family-oriented can not only be fun but also be incredibly addictive and tremendously satisfying even to the most hardcore of game players.
