Talking Point: Do You Agree With The Highest Rated Xbox Games On Metacritic?

It's been almost twenty years since we first got our hands on the original Xbox, and thousands of games have since between released across three generations of Xbox consoles.

Throughout that time, website Metacritic has been producing weighted average scores for the vast majority of Xbox titles based on critical reviews. And so, we thought it'd be fun to go back and look at the very best games in Xbox history according to Metacritic's 'Metascore' rating system.

Without further ado, here are the highest-rated Xbox games on Metacritic:

Game Rating Platform
Grand Theft Auto IV 98 Xbox 360, 2008
Halo: Combat Evolved 97 Xbox, 2001
Grand Theft Auto V 97 Xbox 360, 2013
Red Dead Redemption 2 97 Xbox One, 2018
BioShock 96 Xbox 360, 2007
The Orange Box 96 Xbox 360, 2007
Mass Effect 2 96 Xbox 360, 2007
Grand Theft Auto Double Pack 96 Xbox, 2003
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 96 Xbox 360, 2011
Halo 2 95 Xbox, 2004
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain 95 Xbox One, 2015
Red Dead Redemption 95 Xbox 360, 2010
Portal 2 95 Xbox 360, 2011

As you can see, the vast majority of titles actually originated in the Xbox 360 era, with eight of those games included in the lineup. The original Xbox joins the list on three occasions, while the Xbox One lingers slightly behind at two, although Grand Theft Auto V is also listed for the system on Metacritic.

So, what do you think? Are these the best Xbox games of all time, or is this list missing some key titles? Give us your thoughts in the comments below.
