Top 10 Xbox 360 RPG

Updated on October 26, 2014

The Best Xbox 360 RPG

Welcome to my list of the top 10 Xbox 360 rpg. I have spent many hours playing each of these games and consider them to be some of the best role playing games that you can buy for the Xbox 360.

These games have been rated on several factors, all of which are important to me when I play games.

These factors are:

1) Story

2) Graphics

3) Game Play

4) Music

5) Replay Value

You will not find any MMORPGs on this list. I consider those games to be in another category than regular rpgs.

I have spent many hours on each of these Xbox 360 role playing games and hope that you may enjoy them as much as I have.

Screen shots have been included underneath each game. Just click on the thumbnails to enlarge them. For additional screen shots of each game, click on the game case images.

Lost Odyssey follows the journey of an immortal man named Kiam Argonar. He has lost his memory and has wandered the world for 1000 years, not knowing his purpose.

During the game players will learn the pain that come with being immortal and discover why the immortals exist.

During the video review he will say that there is loading issues. I am not sure if they just had a bad console or Mistwalker Studios has addressed the problem, but I had no issues with loading times during my play-through with this game.

Xbox 360 Role Playing Games Final Fantasy XIII - Top 10 Xbox 360 RPG

This was an amazing Xbox 360 game. Unlike most titles in the Final Fantasy series, the game game did not revolve around one main character.

Instead, the story is told from the perspective of each character and the party as a whole. During each chapter a little bit of each characters backstory is told until you feel like you know them.

Final Fantasy XIII starts off in a floating city called Cocoon. Soldiers are stuffing people into trains to lead them to their death. This is called "The Purge".

As some helpless people are being roughed up a bit too much by the soldiers, a mysterious woman throws off her white mage type cloak and proceeds to thoroughly whoop the soldiers into submission.
