The 10 Most Hyped Xbox 360 Games of 2013 (So Far)

10. Watch Dogs

Set in the modern day, the game is expected to play much like the Assassin's Creed series. Though not exclusive to the Xbox 360, it's certainly going to feature the best online features of all the consoles due to the Xbox 360's superiority in that aspect.

9. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

In Revengeance, you get to slice and dice your opponents with a katana blade strong enough to cut apart the strongest metals. The game’s protagonist, Raiden, is a human blender, and he can cut through just about anything you throw at him. Aside from the crazy storyline, the best part of the game is slicing things into tiny bits.
