Dead Rising and Assassin's Creed are the only games I have I think couldn't be done on past gen so they are super special

For normal gaming Halo 3/ODST, Ninja Gaiden 2, Resident Evil 5, Fable 2, Blur, Sonic All Stars Transformed, Dead or Alive 5, Marvel Ultimate Alliance are great fun to play in solo, multiplayer or just watch someone play

Personal experiences in Arkham Asylum, Mass Effect 1 and 2, Lost Odyssey and Dark Souls 2 were undescribable

Favorite games that never got the credit they deserve- Singularity, Wet, Prototype 2, Halo ODST, Homefront, & many others I'm sure everyone else could add 4-7 of their own in this category.

More popular or whatever favorites- Borderlands the original, Batman Arkham Asylum/City, Halo 3, Halo Reach, Gran Turismo 5, L4D2, (Flame away, just being honest with these next titles) COD4, Modern Warfare 2, Blops 1 & 2(Haven't played 3 yet? Hope it's good), South Park Stick of Truth, Bayonetta, all Gears games of course not counting Judgment, Assassins Creed 2, Crysis 3, Bioshock Infinite, and Mass Effect 2 for me is my favorite of the 3.

Those are my favorites, that I can think of off the top of my head anyway. Liked reading everyone else's choices, they're all good games as long as someone likes them

@Zombie8814:

Saints Row 2 was better in almost every way compared to that one.

Without a doubt, Dead Rising 1 & 2. Truly two of the greatest games of last generation IMO. The moment when I looked out into the mall courtyard, my jaw dropped when I saw all the zombies on screen. Listening to the cheesy background music from the first one makes it even better.

@etphonehome: What went wrong with the XboxOne version of 3 that demo was so bad i didn't bother seeking out the full game.

@deviltaz35: Yeah, the third was pretty glitchy.

@girlusocrazy: Alan Wake was a gem of a game. Best atmosphere of any game i have ever played.

I got it again on PC in a steam sale and it looks incredible.

I loved how in the limited edition Xbox release that the game box looks like a novel too.

@Suaron_x: I would give up on some of those and eBay them while they are still sealed. You'll never catch up again and, chances are, if you move to next gen you will gain a good deal of money towards your next console.

If you do keep going with those games then you will be gaming for a good couple of years. Don't buy any more, you're just wasting money, you'll get them cheaper if you wait to see which games are worth playing further down the line. I have walked in those shoes!
