#5. Fable Anniversary
It’s been 10 years, since Fable debuted on the Xbox. It took a very different route on the RPG track, and many hailed it to be THE way RPGs should be played. It introduced you to a persistent world in which your deeds had lasting ramifications and moral consequences. 10 years later, Fable Anniversary, is making its way to the Xbox 360. If you were a fan of Fable back in the day, then you should get your hands on Fable Anniversary.

#1. Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2
Well, all this time, you’ve been battling Dracula, or at least several of his kind. What happens, when you become the prince of darkness himself. (although, I think he’d object to be being called that), anyway – Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 returns in an epic adventure set in an open, modern day world. Fans of the series will play as Dracula for the very first time and uncover the shocking secrets behind the “Lords of Shadow” saga! Dracula is resurrected once again, weakened and yearning for release from his immortal bonds. He is threatened by Satan, who has returned to bring about the apocalypse and ultimate revenge for his defeat all those centuries ago. Dracula must reacquire his powers of old and make a pact with Death in order to defeat the Devil, and gain his eternal rest. Also seeking Dracula’s destruction is the famed Belmont clan who has entered Dracula’s Castle. Here lies the truth behind their mysterious ancestry. The fight between good vs. evil comes to a close as Dracula is faced with his nemesis, Satan, and his ancestors’ unyielding quest for revenge.
