There is a funny saying in console gaming that goes a little like this: “Every time Xbox 360 games are released into the marketplace, shattering previous box office sales, a Nintendo exec empties his desk and is frogmarched out of Silicon Valley.” Exactly 20 years on from Microsoft’s initial foray into the gaming market, the Xbox 360, alongside its PlayStation rival, has reimagined the possibilities of gaming, with hyper-realistic graphics, multiplayer online competitions, and a gradual shift towards a completely wireless gaming experience.
While Microsoft has evolved its gaming offering into the Xbox series X and S futuristic offering, you can still enjoy these fantastic Xbox 360 games offerings that will never go out of fashion.
