Xbox 360 has randomly started trending on Twitter today, and it's sent us down a nostalgic rabbit hole that's put a collective tear in our eyes for all the happy memories.
Just a quick scroll down the trending mentions has had us revisiting the glory days of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer, to remembering some of the other classic games we played at the beginning of the console's life, such as The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Fans have been sharing their favourite moments of the generation, which has got everyone talking.
Some even took the time to revisit more niche elements of the Xbox 360 era, such as the ability to take your avatar into group Netflix parties, or the iconic 1 vs 100 gameshow that was the talk of the town for a while. We're still a bit bitter about making the 100, but never managing to reach the podium.
There was also another mention that proved popular, and that was the original Xbox 360 dashboard, which served as the birth to many features we know and love today. Achievements, party chat, the store - they were all rolled out in the console's infancy. Little did we know how much the dashboard and overall UI would change over the years. Sometimes it's good to look back and see how far we have come.
Xbox has grown exponentially over the years. Even looking at the beginning of the Xbox 360's life cycle to its end you can see a massive leap. Moving onto the Xbox One, and now the Xbox Series X|S, only further proves the great strides Microsoft is making to fine tune the console experience. But there's still a warm place in our heart for those early Xbox 360 days, when we'd run home from school or work and buddy up with our friends in some multiplayer games.
Those were the days!
