Developed by Microsoft, the Xbox 360 was released in 2005. It proved to be one of the best selling consoles at the time. However, it was also plagued by an issue known in gaming communities as “the red ring of death”. This was a hardware fault which caused the console to become irreparably damaged over time. Despite this problem, the Xbox 360 continued to be popular thanks to the numerous high-quality games available on this console.

Halo 3

Set in the near future, eager players take on the role of a super soldier protecting Earth from alien invaders. Halo 3 offered online play modes where players would be rewarded with an increasing rank over time. Halo 3 received positive reviews thanks to the immersive atmosphere, as well as the epic action sequences of its story missions.

Fallout 3

The actions of any player directly affect the storyline of this post-apocalyptic role-playing game. The main character can be customised in both appearance and personality. The game features an impressively large map which is filled with dangerous monsters and interesting characters. Rather than following a linear plot, players can complete missions at their leisure or simply ignore them and just explore.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

In this first-person shooter, a squad of elite commandos undertake covert operations to prevent World War 3. This game was infamous when it came out due to a level which depicted a terrorist attack in an airport. However, the fun mechanics of the overall game make up for any narrative missteps.

Batman: Arkham City

Players get to control the beloved superhero character. Set throughout one night, Batman is trapped in an area of Gotham which is full of his most dangerous foes. Mark Hamill voices the Joker in one of the best performances in video game history.
