Since Pong and Atari burst onto the scene in the 1970s and 1980s, the gaming industry has thrived. With ever-improving graphics and game systems, the industry has come a long way since joystick controllers and block figures move on the screen. With each passing year, games get more refined with more sophisticated user interfaces.
The top three gaming systems these days are PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, and Xbox 360. Each system has its own strengths and weaknesses and new releases for each are highly anticipated.
This season’s Xbox games are especially exciting. While the PlayStation and the xbox offer many of the same games, the xbox offers a much more robust online service on xbox live, which can add a whole new level to even the best games. Some of the current new xbox game releases to remember are as follows:
1. Call of Duty 5. The fifth game in this popular series takes place during World War II and focuses on the battle between the United States and Japan. This latest version features the best graphics to date and attention to detail for weapons that is phenomenal. The first-person gameplay style allows the player to perform missions to defeat the enemy. To escalate the conflict, players can compete against other players on Xbox Live.
2. Gears of War 2. This violent video game is one of the hottest releases of the season. Featuring an impressive user interface, this sci-fi thriller pits the player against aliens in a galactic battle that outshines the former.
3. Guitar Hero World Tour. Guitar Hero shook the gaming world when it first appeared and this remake builds on that success. This time, more players can get in on the action and players have the chance to try their luck with a variety of instruments, including drums. Gamers even have the option to grab the mic and give vocals a shot, making this one of the most exciting new releases in Xbox games.
4. NBA Live 2009. For sports fans, this release is a must. This basketball game allows players to manage an NBA team and try to lead their team to the final. This year’s version has the most realistic graphics and best-preserved player stats yet.
5. Fallout 3. Another dynasty, the Fallout series, offers its third version, this time with a new developer. This RPG has a futuristic style, set in a post-apocalyptic era. Fans are excited to see this saved series and are eagerly awaiting this new version.
These five games are just the tip of the iceberg. With each passing week, there are more and more new Xbox game releases to choose from to enrich your gaming experience.
