Xbox 360 System Sellers - Console Exclusives

A Listmania! list by Amazon Customer (Boulder, Colorado)
The list author says: "Some of the best Xbox "exclusives" are co-released on the PC or time-limited before they eventually get ported to the PS3 (eg, Elder Scrolls IV, BioShock, Psychonauts, Splinter Cell, GTA4 dlc, etc). But the software interface is second to none and console has an impressive line-up of games you can't find anywhere else.

This is a list of the 360 exclusives that make it worth owning:"
Gears of War 3
1.  Gears of War 3 by Microsoft
The list author says:
  "2011.  Outstanding!  The defining third-person shooter to which all others in the genre this generation are compared.  There is a ton of value on the disk between the single-player & co-op campaign, horde mode, beast mode, various multiplayer versus modes, and continued support by Epic."

Gears of War 2 - Xbox 360
2.  Gears of War 2 - Xbox 360 by Microsoft
The list author says:
  "2008.  One of the best, most influential 3rd-person shooters available on any platform.  The single-player is great, multiplayer is great, co-op campaign is great, and co-op Horde mode is a blast.  Loads of value.

Metacritic = 93.  Don't believe the rating.  It's better than the first."

Mass Effect 2 Platinum Hits
4.  Mass Effect 2 Platinum Hits by Electronic Arts
The list author says:
  "2010.  Co-released on the PC and later on PS3.  Improves on the original in every way.  An outstanding blend of RPG, Action, and Shooter mechanics."

Mass Effect - Xbox 360
5.  Mass Effect - Xbox 360 by Microsoft
The list author says:
  "2007.  Co-released on the PC.  Does BioWare even know how to make an RPG that is less than perfect?

Metacritic = 91."
$18.98   Used & New from: $4.99

Left 4 Dead - Xbox 360
6.  Left 4 Dead - Xbox 360 by Electronic Arts
The list author says:
  "2008.  Co-released on the PC.  Reason enough in its own right to get a 360 if it wasn't available on the PC.  Outstanding 4-player squad-based shooter, it forces you to work with your team more than any other in the genre.  Sadly, free DLC on the PC costs on the 360. 

Metacritic = 89."

Left 4 Dead 2 - Xbox 360
7.  Left 4 Dead 2 - Xbox 360 by Electronic Arts
The list author says:
  "2009.  Co-released on the PC.  The PC version is significantly better, but this console version is a blast if you love zombies and don't have a PC which can handle it."
$28.88   Used & New from: $8.77
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (575 customer reviews) | 29 customer discussions

Alan Wake - Xbox 360
8.  Alan Wake - Xbox 360 by Microsoft
The list author says:
  "2010.  An under-appreciated, story-driven game from the studio that brought us Max Payne.  Part survival-horror, part action game that draws inspiration from many sources, including Twilight Zone, Stephen King novels, and LOST."
$19.95   Used & New from: $5.98
