Games By Genre: What Kind Of Gamer Are You?
The Xbox 360 has one of the largest libraries of games available when it comes to home gaming consoles so it’s no wonder that it has plenty of titles for gamers of every type. The Xbox 360 has titles that cater to every group from the most hardcore fighting and shooter gamers to young children and parents looking for early learning games. Here’s a list of some of the best and most popular titles by genre, guaranteed to have something that you’re looking for:
Party Games – Party games are generally defined as any kind of game you can play with your friends, usually fun and upbeat “couch co-op” or mini game-based games. The Xbox 360 has tons of great party games, great for bringing people together. Although an older title, nothing brings the crowds like a game of Rock Band if you have or can find all the accessories to go with it. The Dance Central series for the Kinect (or even the bundled game Kinect Adventures) is great for getting people up off the couch and playing together.
Action/Adventure – The Xbox console is known for its high-octane action and gripping adventure games. The Assassin’s Creed series puts you in the shoes of an assassin from various time periods, stalking and assassinating various corrupt politicians and businessmen. Devil May Cry 4 is the latest installment in the popular franchise, giving players a taste of over the top action combat mixed with tongue in cheek humor and a gripping storyline.
Sports/Racing – Sports and racing fans truly have one thing in common: The desire to go fast and win big. For the car lovers and speed demons out there, Forza Motorsport 4 is one of the most impressive driving games to date while sports gamers will love popular sports franchises like Madden and the NBA 2kX games.
RPG/Fantasy – The Xbox didn’t start off with a very strong RPG presence, but its library of fantasy themed games has been growing steadily. Classics like Lost Odyssey and Tales of Vesperia are sure to satisfy old school RPG lovers and smash hits like Skyrim, Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning, the Fable series, and Dragon Age series are known for their hours of gameplay and nearly infinite replay value.
FPS – The Xbox 360 has the most played online network out of the consoles available today. Hardcore shooter fans will be put to the test in the most competitive shooting games available today. Call of Duty games Modern Warfare 1, 2, and Black Ops continue to remain popular and squad based shooter Battlefield 3 pits players against each other across massive landscapes. No matter which you play, you’re in for a fight.
Survival/Horror – The Xbox 360 is also great for gamers who love to be scared. Classic survival/horror game Resident Evil is great for taking on the undead hordes alone or with a friend while the Dead Space series teaches gamers what it truly means to be alone and afraid.
Kids/Early Development: The Xbox 360 (and particularly the Kinect) is doing great things and putting out some really amazing games aimed at younger kids.
