I think I’ve played or owned a lot of the best Xbox 360 games over the years. The odds are good that it’s all 10. Keep scrolling to find out!
This next part is important, though. I’ve got a word count to meet, so the least you can do is listen to me talk for a while.
The first time you turned on an Xbox 360, remember. Everything about this console was great, and it still is the best-selling Xbox console ever with 84 million units sold.
Graphics got better, which led to bigger worlds and better stories, as well as characters that we still think about today.
This is especially true for Number 2, who doesn’t know when to give up!
Even so, there are 2,154 Xbox 360 games out there. Which of these are the 10 best-selling Xbox 360 games of all time?
Ramble on; let’s get to work right now!
1. Grand Theft Auto IV (2008)
With Grand Theft Auto IV, we can start the best-selling Xbox 360 games off right.
In GTA, Liberty City was one of the most popular world settings. It’s no surprise that the iconic setting is the main location for players to visit.
Liberty City couldn’t be any more like New York City even if it tried. This version has a little more crime and lawlessness, but only a little, so it’s not that different.
A gang ladder for delinquents is a way to get to the top. You kill everyone you meet on your way up.
There aren’t as many vehicles that can help you get around in GTA V. Still, it’s not a huge deal breaker. There are a lot of explosions to run from and a lot of time to just go around causing trouble.
In Cyberpunk 2077, you can steal cars, visit strip clubs, join gangs, and do jobs. You can play it on the Xbox 360, too.
These games aren’t fun to play, but they look great on the Xbox 360 even now, 14 years after they were made.
2. Halo 3 (2007)
Halo 3 might be 9th in the official rankings, but it’s still a good thing for the Halo series as a whole. Halo 3 sold just over 4 million more copies than Halo 2.
What I love about this game is that while the main mechanics are the same, the continuation of the storyline as well as ‘tying up some loose ends’ from the first two titles makes it incredibly hard to put down.
If you played the first two Halo games, you’ll love Halo 3. You don’t need to be a fan or have played the first two to enjoy Halo 3.
If you just want to blow off some steam, you can plug in and blow up aliens while saving the universe without getting too bogged down.
Everybody is having trouble in this title. The Master Chief and his friends are having trouble as well. The Flood are running wild, Cortana has run away, and a mysterious weapon must be found to get the upper hand on the Flood.
3. Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2009)
Close to 13.5 million copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 have been sold on Xbox 360. This makes it the eighth best selling Xbox 360 game of all time.
It used to happen when a new COD game came out. I mean, I think it did, but I wasn’t there to see it. Most of the students and teachers were also not there.
Modern Warfare 2 added a lot of cool things to the game, like Special Ops Missions and a lot of ways to play multiplayer.
And believe me when I say that the fights were like GoldeEye 007. That’s a lot of praise!
In 2009, a game should not look this good.
4. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (2011)
If you’ve never heard of Skyrim, you don’t need to. It’s one of the most well-known open-world games of all time, and it has more than 200 awards to show for it.
Take Dragonborn on a mission to kill a huge dragon, and you can help. The side quests are just as exciting as the main story, and the weapons you can get will blow your mind.
Plus, any game with AI speech that can deal with the infinite number of possibilities in a game made in 2011 is worth your time!
Eleven years after this game came out, I’m still finding things I didn’t notice the first, third, and eighth times I played it.
13.7 million people have bought the game, which is more than the number of people who bought it on the Xbox.
Take on everyone. Do anything. EA’s iconic brand statement may sound like the first draught of it, but it is very true for this game!
5. Call of Duty: Black Ops II (2012)
“Call of Duty.” Black Ops II was a big deal back then. A war game that takes players back and forth through time. They fight in both the 1980s and a future cold war set in 2025.
You play as a soldier in the 1980s when a cartel leader takes his friend. In 2025, you play as the soldier’s son.
Most RPGs tend to have non-linear timelines and multiple endings, but this time it’s not the case. To be honest, it works great!
This is also the first COD game to use weapons and tactics from the future to fight. During its first 24 hours, it made $500 million. I guess it had to be in this article at some point.
6. Call of Duty: Black Ops (2010)
You can’t have Black Ops 2 without Call of Duty Black Ops.
And it’s even better because you play as Alex Mason, the main character for the 80s part of Black Ops 2 when you play it.
There were a lot of people who bought Black Ops in its first week. At that point, it was the 32nd best game of all time based on overall sales.
I agree with you, the money part is great, but it’s not as cool as character development!
During the 1960s, Alex Mason gives up flower power to shoot down bad guys. Because Mason is a member of the CIA, the Cold War isn’t easy for him.
It would be better if he could remember what was going on, since he’s in charge of making sure chemical weapons don’t get used in the United States.
Defeat your friends in the multiplayer mode, make your characters unique, and get into some real sniper fights.
7. Minecraft – 21+ Million Copies Sold
In Minecraft, there is no need to say anything. While mostly a PC game, the first console it was made for was the Xbox 360, which gave it a new experience and made it more popular. Microsoft may have bought the rights to Minecraft because of the success of the 360 version of the game. This led to the game going even higher. Even with its stripped-back features, people found a very faithful and newcomer-friendly experience on consoles; for a time, Minecraft might have been the best Xbox 360-exclusive game out there.
8. Kinect Adventures! – 24 Million Copies Sold
This is true: Kinect Adventures is the best game on the Xbox 360 right now. When you think about it, it makes sense that it came with Xbox consoles that had the Kinect add-on. Wii Sports might be a better comparison because it’s more likely that not many people got their hands on it by accident. Even though Kinect Adventures had a lot of different game modes and even online multiplayer, people might not agree on whether or not it was worth all the attention it got.
This list is very different from the list of best-selling PS3 games. When it comes to the PS3, the most popular games were all exclusives. Only one game in the top 10 for the Xbox 360 wasn’t even released on a different platform! Because the PS3 had a lot of exclusive games that made it popular, the Xbox 360 had a lot of popular games even though they weren’t exclusive. This is what people thought about the 360: It was loved by everyone, and it’s going to be one of the best consoles ever.
