    It's nice to compare these near-launch titles to the beauties of today and then think of what the One will be able to do in eight years. I can't wait...

    Is it bad that after all these years, I've only played 3 of the games on this list (including honourable mentions)? redface

    The original Need for Speed Most wanted was one of my personal favourite games for a good while after that was released :) Pretty sure it was released somewhere around 2005/2006.

    Viva Piñata will always be my favourite game from the 360s launch.

    Some that were missed Test Drive Unlimited, Hitman Blood Money, BF2MC, F.E.A.R, Far Cry IP, Burnout Revenge, THAW, Gun, Most Wanted 2005 and GRAW 1. All I would say are part of the classic titles of 360.

    Call of Duty 2 was nothing special in a worn genre I preferred Vegas 1 still a great game many years later.

    Yes that game is in my opinion the best game of all time.

    Glad to see Gears on there. My personal favourite of all time, not just 05/06.
    Sleep is so overrated.

    Project Gotham 3?
    It still plays and looks decent today.
    That Gears trailer was what gears used to be about and what most of us loved.

    I still remember going to the movie theater and seeing that Gears of War trailer with the previews and saying "Holy Shit, that will be awesome!"
    All great games for their time and some still amazing even now - Condemned, still one of my all time favorites
    Go LSU and SAINTS!!

    If I had an 11th pick it would have probably been this or Need for Speed: Most Wanted, whilst I try to get all the big games it's just not possible.

    This will get worse once we hit the 'good' years.

    Kameo,Just Cause,Enchanted Arms,Amped 3 and DOA 4 are all worth a mention from my point of view.

    I would toss out condemned, that game was horrible. Trying to find collectibles in piles of garbage. Shadow run should take its place. At least shadow run was trying to think outside the box.
    I wrote here once on accident and this is what I wrote to never see the original post again.

    I wonder how many votes these games from the first year of the 360's life will get? I'd be surprised if any made the top 25.
