List RulesGames don't have to be console exclusive, as long as they were released for Xbox 360 at some point.

If you owned an Xbox 360 at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few RPGs in your collection. There's something about role-playing games that really capture your imagination and make you feel like you're part of another world. Your party always has colorful characters, the abilities you gain along the way are amazing, and boss battles are usually nothing short of epic—well, usually. With so many great options to choose from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre. Since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best Xbox 360 RPGs of all time. 

This list features the most popular and best-selling RPGs that were released for Xbox 360. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. Popular 360 RPGs include everything from sci-fi action games like Fallout 3 and fantasy epics like Skyrim and more. Vote up all your favorite video games below.
