I game on all consoles and PC

2008. The year Fable 2 and Lost Odyssey (in the west) came out.




Even 2012 was pretty damn good, contrary to the narrative I so often hear (and which has never made sense to me) that 360's later life was disappointing.

Halo 4, Dishonoured, Max Payne 3, Black Ops II, Far Cry 3, Spec Ops: The Line, Forza Horizon, Sonic All Star Racing Transformed, all excellent.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

It wasn't a matter of better or worse or one opinion over the other, after all this is subjective even if we picked the same year it wouldn't mean we had the same reasons. my reply was why I see 2007 as the best despite the great 2010 lineup you pointed out and to get your and others views on that.

The fact that 2007 introduced many new games like Bioshock or was the entry point for series like Halo 3 that went on to shape the future of the 360's library, is a big factor in my choice, rather than down playing sequels, so in retrospect I should have made that clearer by marking 2007 up rather than marking 2010 down.

Fair enough; in my view 2010 also introduced so many new games; where 2007 had Bioshock and Mass Effect, 2010 had Bayonetta, Vanquish, Alan Wake, Singularity, and Metro.

My decision was made on a number of grounds 1. gained their console start /popularity on 360  2. became renowned franchises 3. 360 was the only place to play them on console 4. made 360 my main console for the first few years after PS3 came out.

Well, Metro and Alan Wake made their console debut on 360 and weren't available on PS3, while Bayonetta and Metro did go on to become franchises.

I mostly just base my picks on which games I thought were the best, regardless of exclusivity or sequels.

I know you play what you like, so do I and both of us don't need to have our selections validated by anyone but ourselves. The thread says 360's best year so my post was more skewed toward trying to look at the years in relation to the title, not just as a list of when each individuals favorite games came out although that plays a part after all we are gamers, by trying to gauge their historical impact by looking at how those releases affected the 360 going forward, obviously some more than others an example would be halo 3 releasing on the platform rating high on that scale and something like say Crackdown while helping the console being much lower, I would like to hear what games regardless of the release year you feel had the greatest impact on the 360 ecosystem.

Gears of War was a big one, it was the system's first real killer app and set both a graphical and mechanical standard for the following generation. While I don't particularly like it GTA 4 was a megaton as well, Halo of course, plus Modern Warfare 1 & 2. My best year's still got to go to the one with the games I personally thought were the best though, but I've already gone over that at length haha

2007 was easily the best. It had great exclusives like Mass Effect, Bioshock, Halo 3, PGR4, Forza 2, Blue Dragon, Lost Planet, Ace Combat 6, Crackdown along with multiplatform games like The Orange Box, Cod4, Assassins creed, and Rock band which really made it a special year. 2010 would be my runner up.

Looking at the list from a 360 perspective it is a good year, but a lot of the narrative was was built around comparisons with PS3 and if you take away the multiplats you start to see the beginning of ( true or not) the Halo Forza Gear's box narrative.
