Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Xbox 360, my saviour in the current gen

By the time all is said and done, I think the venerable 360 may just overtake the PS1 and N64 to become my #3 fav system of all time.

During the many droughts of the Wii U and now the lack of appealing new Switch games in the first half of this year, it really has been my dependable backup; there are so many games I skipped on it during its heyday that I can now go back and grab for ridiculously cheap prices.

I just picked up Sonic Generations, Battlefield Hardline, and Witcher 2 in a "buy one get two free" deal; none of these games managed to compel a buy from me back when they came out at full price, but now they're like $4 altogether, the cost of a takeaway coffee, the value is insane.

The infamous RROD aside, I really feel the 360 is an underrated system. The controller is comfortable, the graphics hold up remarkably well for a system that released in 2005, most multi-platform games of its generation run better on it, and the sheer volume of worthwhile games on it is immense.

I feel like it doesn't get the recognition it deserves, so I thought I'd give it a shoutout for keeping me going through the tough times.

I remember playing cod2/oblivion/me on it for the first time mind was fucking blown. Great machine indeed

Xbox 360 is my second favourite console of all time, only behind the PS2.

But why battlefield hardline? It's the worst one. Get bad company 2 instead.

Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

It's just behind My 3DS and Switch so it definitely gets a good spot !

Kinda sick of military shooters, so wanted to try the whole cops and robbers thing for a change of pace.

Original Xbox much better, the true underrated system.

Honestly don't understand how people still play in 7th gen, the worst generation since the early days. But that's just my opinion.

I do prefer other consoles of that gen over it, but I still really enjoyed it. The games are also getting really cheap, so that means a huge library for an affordable price!

My X1 is my 360 now. I have packed my 360 up and placed it in the vault of legends right next to my NES

I try to keep all of my consoles out and plugged in, to avoid them suffering the fate of never being played again!

I think its underrated because half of all consoles died statistically, the red ring of death was a big problem because it happened two often.

tho it was overall better than the PS3 because the games weren't a mess and didn't run well for like 4 years. also released a little earlier so had a better library than ps3


and then microsoft follows it with the console with the worst library since like the sega cd.
