1. Dragons Dogma (Amazon - $37.99)

Before Resident Evil 6, Capcom was on a roll with the release of Dragons Dogma. This title was never expected to do well, but after critics and gamers got their hands on it, it quickly became one of the best RPGs of 2012 for the Xbox 360. Dragons Dogma is similar to Monster Hunter in some areas, but its strong single player RPG element with plenty of monsters to kill, along with satisfying multiplayer addition, makes this game a worthy purchase for every western loving RPG fan.

2. XCOM: Enemy Unknown (Amazon - $39.99)

Since' Halo Wars', there hasn't been a good real time strategy video game on the Xbox 360, but that changed when 'XCOM: Enemy Unknown' came along. The original XCOM was widely considered as one of the best strategy games ever made and the remake lived up to fans' expectations. The game pits the player as the XCOM Commander; it is up to you to defend against a terrifying alien threat that is plaguing the earth. The player is tasked at managing and creating new resources from alien technologies, and commanding soldiers on the battlefield, among other things.

3. Fez (Xbox Live Arcade - 800 Microsoft Points )

Fez is one of the most innovative Xbox Live Arcade games for the Xbox 360 in 2012. The game puts the player in the shoe of Gomez, a 2D creature who came across the existence of mysterious third dimension. The game allow players to manipulate 2D objects in 3D with a simple press of a button. The whole game can be considered as clever, innovative, and also quite fun.

4. Dead or Alive 5 (Amazon - $39.99)

'Dead or Alive 5' for the Xbox 360, is a game that is filled with a lot of action and women in tight clothing. Needless to say, the game is quite a sexy experience; however, gamers who are not into such graphics may have a problem. Take away the sexy premise and you have a solid fighting game on your hands. The game comes preloaded with its signature fighting styles along with some MMA fighting techniques to keep things fresh and exciting. No longer is a backdrop in a particular stage just a tool for looking at, it can be used to perform massive damage on opponents, and fighters sweat a lot as they use up a lot of energy. 'Dead or Alive 5' is a fun game and should be bought by any fan of beat-em-ups.

5. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (Amazon - $39.99)

'Call of Duty: Black Ops 2' is the biggest shooter of 2012 on the Xbox 360, and for a good reason. For years, gamers have been complaining about the Call of Duty series being the same game with little changes every year, which was true. However, with Black Ops 2, Treyarch came out gunning with many new multiplayer features to bring back the fun and excitement in Call of Duty. With an all new future battle in the year 2025, reimagined multiplayer, innovative weaponry and a new Zombie experience, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is the best Call of Duty game to date.
