When the seventh generation of consoles came out, it changed the world of console gaming. Since 2005, the Xbox 360 has been at the forefront of this change.
It started a new era of gaming where split-screen games like Halo and Gears of War were replaced by online games like Halo and Gears of War, which were played online.
Still, there are some great local multiplayer and couch co-op games on this new machine. Many AA batteries were used over the weekend to play video games with friends.
Let’s look at some of the best games that are still fun to play today.
1. Rayman Legends (2013)
The Xbox 360 has a lot of games that aren’t as violent and testosterone-filled as some of the other games.
One of the best Xbox 360 games to play with your family is Rayman Legends, which is a fun action-platformer that lets up to four people play together.
In this game, the 2D art is very beautiful and vivid, and the controls are very well made. From start to finish, the game runs like a dream.
2. Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction (2010)
I’ve always thought of Splinter Cell as a game that tried to be like Metal Gear Solid. When it comes to multiplayer, Sam Fisher is better than Snake by a long shot.
While the Spies vs. Mercs mode is always a lot of fun, the multiplayer experience I want when I start up Conviction is the co-op campaign.
It doesn’t just add a companion to the main campaign. Instead, the game has a special set of levels where teamwork isn’t an option, but a must.
3. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Video Game (2010)
There were both a movie and a video game called Scott Pilgrim vs. The World when it came out at the same time.
I don’t know which one is better.
For a generation, the movie was very important in the way people thought about culture. But very few people I knew knew about the game.
I’ve always been into beat-em-ups. So I tried it.
It was soon after that, I was begging my friends to play so I could have a full team to fight Ramona’s seven evil ex-boyfriends. This is how it works:
There are a lot of characters you can play as, so everyone should find one they like. Anamanaguchi’s soundtrack is also one of the best parts of this beat-em-up. It makes playing for hours a real pleasure.
4. Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 (2008)
You can’t make a friendship by playing a complicated military game with someone else. Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 has the best co-op gameplay in the genre, and it’s free.
When you play Terrorist Hunt with a friend, you can shoot down waves of terrorists together. The co-op campaign is what makes this game so good.
Playing with a friend makes the whole thing a lot better than just telling the AI what to do.
The game is also great because you and your 2P can make your characters as unique as you want before going on dangerous missions.
5. Dungeon Defenders (2011)
In this game, you’ll have to use your brain more than your body to fight off waves of enemies. It’s a unique mix of action RPG and tower defence.
In this game, you and up to three of your friends will each choose from one of four different characters: a knight (you), a magician (you), a huntress (you), or a monk (you). You and your friends will each use their unique skills to keep waves of fiends from destroying your Eternia Crystal.
Active skills and towers can be used to protect a corridor, either by dealing damage to enemies, slowing them down or doing something else to stop them from getting there.
Making complicated plans with your friends and then seeing them through with grit and clenched teeth is a lot of fun.
6. Trials Evolution (2012)
Having fun with your friends on motocross bikes is always a good way to spend the day.
However, there’s Trials Evolution for those of us who can’t afford to buy a bike or pay for our medical bills.
Beautiful racing and 2D platforming make up this beautiful game. You and up to three friends go through supercross courses where you have to stay on your bike and not fall off while racing for speed.
It has creative and difficult maps that will help you improve your skills, as well as a powerful level editor.
It’s not the most ambitious or visually striking game. There will be a lot of fun when someone’s face hits the ground before their wheels do.
7. Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition (2014)
Blizzard’s Diablo III is one of the best co-op games on any platform.
In the Ultimate Evil Edition, you get content from the Reaper of Souls expansion, as well as a lot of other things.
Most important, it has the Crusader and Necromancer classes, as well as the ability to change your clothes.
As long as you and up to three of your friends are ready and willing to go on a long journey to get better weapons and level up, this hack-and-slash RPG is for you.
8. Borderlands 1, 2, & 3
This is one of my favourite shows. Borderlands combines first-person shooting with character development in a role-playing game. Choose from four characters, each with their own skill tree, and play as them in this game! It takes players through quests and missions to reach each game’s epic ending. Hundreds of thousands of weapons are in the arsenal, and the fight between vehicles is very intense.
If you’re interested, Borderlands Pre-Sequel tells the backstory of Handsome Jack, the bad guy from Borderlands 2. That one is different from the originals. So if you want to play it, first play the originals.
9. Gears of War 1, 2, & 3
I like this series because it is a third-person shooter. You can play it in campaign, horde, or fight mode for hours. Follow the troops of Delta Squad as they make their last-ditch effort to save the planet Sera from the subterranean Locust Hordes and their mutant counterparts, the Lambent.
For good reason, the Gears of War games are some of the most popular on Xbox Live. Each game has cover-based combat, which means that players can hide behind objects to avoid being shot at. Each one also has a lot of different multiplayer options, so you can play against each other or work together to fight AI opponents.
10. Call of Duty: Black Ops 1 & 2
This is the next COD movie. It’s set in the year 2025. Black Ops 2 has a lot of changes and improvements that make it stand out from the other episodes. The Zombies mode can be played alone or with up to four other people. In other modes, it is possible for up to eight people to play online at the same time.
Zombies mode is fun to play for a long time. Plus, if you have three other people, you can play a lot of fun games together. Screen-cheat! Working together, you can come up with a plan. You can build “zombie trains,” use perks, and so on. It’s time to pack-a-punch your weapons, then pick them off one by one. As soon as you understand how to play, try looking for Easter eggs on each map!
