Here is the list I made about the big Microsoft exclusive games of 2008 for the 360. Hope you enjoy.

RPGs:
The sequel to Fable 1, that got 50+ AAA reviews, sold near to 3 million copies and averaged a 85%.
With some of the most stunning next gen graphics, vast towns and forests right out of a fairy tale,
and innovations no other game has tried before. Total freedom and non linearity in gameplay and exploration,
and addictive 100% real time combat, with next gen use of the environment.

Got to add in Lego Batman and also Star Wars - both going to be huge hits.

Top Spin 3 should be good for sports.

And not sure how you missed out GTA 4!!

Other than that, list seems pretty much spot on :p

^^^GTA IV FTW!;)

It's RockStar's Conspiracy I tell you! They purposely wanted to release GTA in 2008 instead of the 4th Quarter of this year, so they don't have to compete with all the major hits.

GTA will most likely be nominated for GotY in 2008, but we'll have to wait and see if it'll actually win.

Thanks. I didnt put in LEGO batman, top spin etc because that is a exclusives list, but if you want me to put in them I will. I just dont know what genre LEGO batman will be? I dont know about anyone else but havent you noticed that 2008 looks like the year of RPG's?

Yes, I like all genres except wrestling and survival horror. But rpgs + platformers are my two favorite genres.

That being said you missed Culdcept Saga under Rpgs!

What about Prototype?! That game looks like it's gonna be one of the greatest games of all time! Can't forget about that when talking about 2008 Game Of The Year.

Games that aren't exclusive: Precursors, Elveon, Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom, Sacred 2: Fallen Angel, Alan Wake, Theseis, White Gold, Warhound, Universe at War, World in Conflict, Dead Island, and Age of Conan Hyborian Adventures.

A lot of these are not 360 Exclusives. Some of them are on the PC too.Should change it to, "Microsoft Exclusives" or remove the games. Elveon is also coming out for the PS3 I'm pretty sure.

For RPGs, you've missed Spectral Force 3, Fallout 3, Rise of the Argonauts, and Last Remnant (was at some point aimed for 2008 might as well have it up there).

They're both coming out on PC. So that makes them Microsoft exclusives not 360 exclusives.

Read. These are exclusives. RE5 and GTA4 are not Xbox 360 exclusives. Most of these are Microsoft exclusives so you can still get them on the PC.

It looks like 2008 is going to be weak for me which is good, I can save some money finally! I know for sure so far the games I'm going to get are Dynasty Warriors 6, GTA4, and DMC4.

Nice list. Thanks for the screenies of the RPGs. I still have all of the RPGs I have played since the SNES days, and I miss my NES ones. The weak RPG lineup is one reason I held off on getting a 360.

Looks good to me. Most of my friends are in to the shooters but me, not so much. I'll be happy to play some RPG's and strategy games. Although I do like survival horror, left for dead looks like it might be fun. I read the preview in some magazines the multiplayer sounds fun with the Co-op. Its payback for all the FPS's this year.

Oh wow all those games look sick, I really can't wait for Fable 2. As far as not on the list goes I realllllly can't wait for the UFC game and GTA IV!

I missed them out because those are coming to other consoles as well. The ones in my list are console exclusive which means that they are either coming to the PC and 360. Hope this clears it up! :woop:

Just seeing these screenshots is awesome... the last screen I saw was nightfire on ps2... the graphics suck but you can't argue against killing bots with a zero recoil sniper... but gta4 and rb6v2 are going to be the only games I buy in 08... everything else is going on the gamefly list
