Top 10 Video Games On The Xbox 360!

If someone has an Xbox 360, or are looking to buy one, chances are they're overwhelmed by the amount of video games available for the system. Here is a breakdown of the top ten Xbox games. Some are new video games, and some are based on video game reviews.

1. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Without a doubt, this game is a must for any XBox 360 owner. The graphics are stunning, and the playtime is unlimited due to never ending quests. This game gives players maximum control over their character's development and allows the player to choose their path as a Dragonborn.

2. Batman Arkham City

This game is the sequel to Arkham Asylum and gives players the ability to play as both Batman and Catwoman. Playing Arkham City will test melee combat abilities along with investigative skills as players battle through Arkham's roster of villains.

3. Gears of War 3

Gears of War 3 allows the player to join forces with other players in a battle to save humanity. Along with the amazing fighting, this game's engrossing story line will keep people playing.

4. Assassin's Creed Revelations

While still keeping with the amazing combat abilities that have marked previous titles in this series, Revelations takes a new direction with the story of Ezio Auditore and keeps the game feeling fresh.

5. Mass Effect 2

The alternate universe that players are continuing to battle for is stunningly rendered. The game allows people to choose their actions as they go, and this ultimately determines the fate of their team.

Why UFC at Evo 2012 Can Help the Fighting Game Community

So you want to be a fighter at Evo?

This year's Evo featured some of the best matches, comebacks and moments in the tournament's history. From PR Balrog's amazing level 3 grab on Viscant's Dark Phoenix to the destruction of Daigo courtesy of Poongko's Seth.

With all the tournament matches going on, UFC Undisputed 3 was quietly showcased at Evo. In a video presentation, the producer of the game, Neven Dravinski hinted that the third installment could make a run at next year's (2012) Evo.

Could UFC Undisputed 3 players create as much hype as Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Street Fighter competitors?

Let's take a look:

The Undisputed franchise is obviously very different from your traditional fighting games. If you want to be taken seriously as a competitive player in Street Fighter, you'll have to know how to pull off combos and when to counter your opponent.

In UFC Undisputed, you don't have to keep the fight standing.

If your opponent has you dazed or you do not feel comfortable on the feet, you can take your opponent down. From there you can improve your position and put a beating on your competitor. You can also go for a submission.

Imagine what the reaction of spectators at Evo 2012 would be if someone who was on the verge of getting knocked out pulled off a triangle choke. Comebacks in past UFC Undisputed titles have provided gamers with much hype.

An issue that gamers are concerned with is the community. How big of a community would UFC Undisputed have? Will it have a big following? Or will it be almost as nonexistent as the Virtua Fighter scene? I believe that the popularity of the UFC could draw more gamers to the competitive field.
