Holy shit yeah, no Lost odyssey, Alan Wake, Fable 2, Left for Dead...I mean wow. A bunch of multiplats over actual 360 exclusives. Probably the worst top 20 I've ever seen. Bad taste is running rampant.

Also, WTF. Where's Dragon Age. Left 4 Dead games. Dark Souls. Fable II. Metro: Last Light. Dead Rising. Alan Wake. Dragon's Dogma. Vanquish. PROJECT GOTHAM RACING! Can't believe things like Minecraft, two Batman games (one would have been enough), two Mass Effect games and Saint Row IV took the place of some of the games I listed up there.

Tales of Vesperia, but no Lost Odyssey?

A list not made by any 360 player I know.

I went on their site and it lost all credibility for me. Any one that puts COD Ghosts as 21st best game of all time or BF4 as 5th is not reliable, to say the least.

I'll never understand why people hate Halo: Reach so much. Its campaign is arguably even better than Combat Evolved's, and its multiplayer has really grown on me.

Gremdude (on 30 November 2013)

So just as bad as the PS3 list. That one is hilarious. It has Minecraft on there which is not even on that platform. So dumb

existenz2 (on 24 November 2013)

Everything except halo and gears of war is available now on playstation or will be soon (minecraft). 360 is soo dead
