As part of our big nostalgia featurette, I thought I'd reminisce over the Xbox 360, the console that arguably thrust the Xbox brand into the limelight.
The Xbox 360 represents a special time in gaming when the internet began to truly take off, and Microsoft came to the fore with its standardized connectivity for console games in the form of Xbox Live.
The Xbox 360 era also represents some of my favorite gaming franchises of all time, in an age where service-type games hadn't taken away all of the big publisher's attention. Games like Dead Space, Mass Effect, Dragon Age: Origins, and many, many, many more soaked up hundreds of hours of my time, launching right around the time I dropped out of school (perfect timing, perhaps?)
Here's a little Xbox 360 retrospective, covering all the highs and some of the low lows.
