A Girl's Favorite Games for Xbox 360

A Listmania! list by E. Fitzgerald "bibliophile" (OH, United States)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "I tend to enjoy stories more than action in a game, so if you're like me you may like some of the games in this list. Looking for sports games? Go someplace else. :)"
Halo: Combat Evolved
1.  Halo: Combat Evolved by Microsoft
The list author says:
  "Though it is an Xbox original game, the first game in the Halo series is still worth playing (and is still playable on the 360). Good world-building and great story. I usually don't care for this type of story, but even I was converted."
$20.99   Used & New from: $1.30
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,826 customer reviews) | 19 customer discussions

Halo 2 - Xbox
2.  Halo 2 - Xbox by Microsoft
The list author says:
  "The sequel to Halo is perhaps not quite as good as the first, but still an enjoyable storyline and great action. Introduces new tech and the ability to play a different character, which was awesome."
$19.99   Used & New from: $3.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,035 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Halo 3 - Xbox 360
3.  Halo 3 - Xbox 360 by Microsoft
The list author says:
  "Moving the Halo franchise to the 360 drastically upgrades the visual treat that is this game. On an HDTV this game's backgrounds look real. Another good story with a cliffhanger ending (wait until the credits are done!)"
$17.25   Used & New from: $1.90
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (779 customer reviews) | 128 customer discussions

Fable: The Lost Chapters
4.  Fable: The Lost Chapters by Microsoft
The list author says:
  "Another Xbox original game that still translates well to the 360. What I like about this game is that you can change your experience of it any time you play. You can be good, evil, or a mixture. Nice storyline as well."
$9.99   Used & New from: $1.72
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (451 customer reviews) | 5 customer discussions

Jade Empire (Limited Edition)
5.  Jade Empire (Limited Edition) by Microsoft
The list author says:
  "This is the only (that I know of) Asian RPG on the xbox market. An Xbox Original game (again) but the story was so gripping to me that literally was on the edge of my seat playing until my eyes hurt. Beautiful scenery and a great fighting game with awesome martial arts moves (and several styles to learn). Thank goodness they're making a sequel for the 360!"
$44.99   Used & New from: $3.95
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (67 customer reviews)

Tenchu Z - Xbox 360
6.  Tenchu Z - Xbox 360 by Microsoft
The list author says:
  "This one almost didn't make my list. The story is scant and the repetitive nature of the missions can get a little dull. But who wouldn't love to play a ninja? This game is different from most shoot-em-up games. In this game, you get points for being stealthy, for killing silently, for creeping across rooftops without a sound. A fun, geektastic game with lots of ways to customize your character."
$61.99   Used & New from: $9.88
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (70 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Naruto: Rise of a Ninja - Xbox 360
7.  Naruto: Rise of a Ninja - Xbox 360 by UBI Soft
The list author says:
  "I enjoy the manga for this series, but even a person unfamiliar with the story would enjoy this I think. Visually, the game is a treat with 3D cell-animation and beautiful scenery. The fight sequences are fast-paced and almost comic-book shiny with explosions and funky combo moves."
$64.99   Used & New from: $9.49
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Fable II
8.  Fable II by Microsoft
The list author says:
  "Better than the original Fable, Fable II is a gorgeous game that you can literally play for hours and hours. The story is engaging, the voice actors are great, and the playtime is engrossing. Definitely worth buying."
$21.99   Used & New from: $1.75
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (403 customer reviews) | 77 customer discussions

Mass Effect - Xbox 360
9.  Mass Effect - Xbox 360 by Microsoft
The list author says:
  "I LOVE this game. Mass Effect is a sci-fi RPG. Rather like a cross between Fable and Halo. Great story line and tons of threads to follow."
$15.99   Used & New from: $4.95
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (652 customer reviews) | 39 customer discussions

Star Wars the Force Unleashed - Xbox 360
10.  Star Wars the Force Unleashed - Xbox 360 by LucasArts
The list author says:
  "A good game: great ways to use the Force, good characters, interesting story, and nice-looking graphics. Not a buy for me, but a very solid rent. Star Wars fans will enjoy."
$20.18   Used & New from: $2.87
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (330 customer reviews) | 66 customer discussions

Prince Of Persia - Xbox 360
11.  Prince Of Persia - Xbox 360 by UBI Soft
The list author says:
  "I never played the previous incarnations of this game, but you don't need to. THe art style of this game is incredible--beautiful vistas and cell-shaded characters. The mission gets a little repetitive after awhile, but stick it out to the end and you'll be surprised. Not a buy for me right now; I'll wait until it goes down in price."
$24.68   Used & New from: $0.01
3.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (113 customer reviews) | 9 customer discussions

Fallout 3 - Xbox 360
12.  Fallout 3 - Xbox 360 by Bethesda
The list author says:
  "Not as good as I wanted it to be, but definately worth buying and playing. A very bleak game too; play cheerful music while you're playing or you'll get depressed."
$10.49   Used & New from: $1.95
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (451 customer reviews) | 199 customer discussions
