    I know Fable isn't everyone's cup of tea, but it is a big part of Microsoft's gaming history. Fable 2 is definitely the best game in the series, and I personally love it.

    You just can't have a 360 collection without one of my favorite games of all time, and the 360 version was the best version last gen.



  • i know most people couldnt care less about schmp genre any more but the 360 has some of the best games since the saturn deathsmiles akai katana dodonpachi & the region free cave ones are some of the best ive ever played & they make dark souls look like a walking simulator when it comes to challange.

    It was one of the first games I owned on Xbox 360 plus it was an exclusive. At first I was not at all interested in the game due to the time management mechanic. It only took a few retry's to really get into it. Once I had some what of a pattern down, it was on! Plus all the colorful characters made the game super intense at times. It should be #1 in my book.



  • @FutureCorpse Sure does, I even have most of them (afaik only missing ESPgaluda 2). Thinking of getting Caladrius Blaze for PS4.

    Getting weird with my second pick. This is hands down, the best multiplayer poker game I've ever played. It had a colorful, bright palette and would let you bring your Microsoft avatar in to play some poker. By passing certain milestones, you could even win costumes and accessories for your avatar (only to be used in the game). They would have weekly events called heats, where you were basically trying to make the most chips you could within 30 minutes, where you'd alternate tables and compete on a global level. It had a great community too, where most people were friendly and it was a blast staying up late at night, drinking some brews, and playing some cards. I've had a poker sized hole in my heart ever since I switched back to Sony consoles.

    I had to make sure that the amazing Dead Space sneak it's way in there,easily one of the best game of last generation.



  • @kirkking2000 Before Overwatch came out, Left 4 Dead 2 and Halo: Reach were my most played multiplayer games. Reach is really underrated.



  • Its been another day, so I'll add another. And speaking of Left 4 Dead 2...

    Left 4 Dead 2

    This is a co-op experience unlike any other and improve upon the first game in every way. If only Valve would get over its 3 phobia... Anyway, there are TWO spots left before a communal switch. Then we determine what should be the best.

    Portal 2:

    Since we can't nominate boxed sets and The Orange Box is therefore out of the question, I'm gonna drop Portal's sequel here. It's a game that can entertain both first time and long time gamers, it's got great writing, it's mechanically near flawless, and it's a fully fleshed out and realized game world.



  • @TokyoSlim I guess we both posted at the same time.



  • Looks like I was too late!
    I'll retract my nomination and instead put forth Portal 2 to replace...Full House Poker, I guess?

    I'm not sure FHP it fully deserves to be on the list, it seems like a pretty niche/discount title that maybe one person in this thread liked and nobody else played or has heard of? I dunno, I could be totally wrong here. :)



  • @TokyoSlim Ouch. It may be a niche title but it did interesting things with the avatars. Blue Dragon would be my vote for a game to be replaced, honestly.

    Even if that glorious poker game does get voted out....

  • @SabotageTheTruth I hear ya man, nothin personal. I'm just like going down the list and going "classic, classic, classic, annnd a poker game" :)

    Someone should make a Texas Hold Em JRPG.



  • @TokyoSlim Funny you say that..... It's not Japanese but hey, it might be fun.
