So you'd like to play some good RPGs on your 360, huh? While the system seems to attract more first-person shooters than anything, there are absolutely some good RPGs to be had as well. Let's have a look at some good ones.

Dragon Age: Origins - Xbox 360 Is a great place to start. It's a deep and engaging game.

Dragon Age 2 - Xbox 360 An obvious choice given the start of the list. A good sequel as well.

Mass Effect - Xbox 360 Also a Bioware original. The first one is a bit slow and the systems are kind of tedious, but there's a good game under there.

Mass Effect 2 Platinum Hits The sequel is tighter, easier, and more engaging.

Fallout 3 A Huge, dark game that is somewhat loose on narrative, but all kinds of fun.

Fallout: New Vegas The sequel features a much more engaging story, but is otherwise very similar.

Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game of the Year Edition -Xbox 360 One of the most open-ended RPGs ever made. You may miss the main plot, but you'll have fun doing it.

Lost Odyssey - Xbox 360 An underrated JRPG that may not amaze, but will entertain.

Tales of Vesperia - Xbox 360 Also a very typical JRPG.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope - Xbox 360 Found this one a little predictable, but not too bad.

Fable II Kind of a lighter RPG, but entertaining.

Fable III - Xbox 360 Very much like Fable 2, but doesn't feel quite as engaging.
