Microsoft Stops Production of the Xbox 360, Let's Remember All of Our Favorite Games
Microsoft announced today that they're stopping production of the Xbox 360 after 10 years. The Xbox 360 was a huge player in the last generation of gaming so surviving for 10 years is quite an achievement (unlocked, get it because achievements). The 360 brought us a lot of exclusive titles like Halo and Gears of War but it holds a special place in my heart for a different reason.
When it came out, I was pretty much done with playing video games. I had no reason to continue and I felt that it was because I was growing up and getting older. But without the 360, the last ten years has been filled with a lot of great experiences. And I know that the games on the upcoming list were all cross-platform games but I experienced them on Xbox 360 and without the console, I probably wouldn't have kept playing games at all.
And who knows where I'd be without it, I probably wouldn't be your Video Games Moderator-ator. And I probably wouldn't be so cool. But anyway, let's take this trip down memory lane. Here are 3 games that will always be tied to the Xbox 360 for me and I'll always remember them with fondness.

The Skate Series

Like I said earlier, I didn't want to get a new console. I didn't care for video games at the time. But when I heard that there was a new skateboarding game coming out that was more "realistic" in its controls, I suddenly needed to get a 360. And all the games in the series didn't disappoint. It kept the winter months filled with skateboarding and got me pumped for the warmer months to come back. I absolutely loved these games.

Red Dead Redemption

I've written so many cards about this game already. I don't know what else I can say. It's art. It's an amazing game. Everything works the way you want it to. Also, horses. Horses are great.

Fallout 3/Fallout: New Vegas

I'm going to be completely honest with you guys. I didn't think I'd like the Fallout series when I got my hands on a copy of Fallout 3. But without these two games, I probably wouldn't have fallen back into play RPGs as much as I do. It had everything that I wanted in a game that I didn't know I wanted. You all know how much I love these games, so I don't really need to get into it.
Again, I know my list of games are all cross-platform. But what are you favorite games from the last generation? Whether they're Xbox exclusives or cross-platform, it doesn't matter. Let me know in the comments or make a card of your own!

If we aren't looking purely for exclusives here, I'm just gonna throw a list down of all my favorite games from the 360 days. Dark Souls 1&2, COD WAW&MW2, Halo Reach, Fallout NV, Skyrim, Oblivion, Naughty Bear (always in my heart), the Borderlands games, Assassin's Creed brotherhood/3/revelations/black flag, GTA 4/5, Titanfall, Far Cry 3, Prototype 1/2, and many, many others.
