The November 2014 video game avalanche is upon us. That means one thing for gamers: There are far too many amazing titles to play at once. Three blockbuster games (Assassin’s Creed Rogue, Assassin’s Creed Unity and Halo: The Master Chief Collection) launched yesterday alone. With the month only half over, there are still tons of great games headed our way. What’s a person to do?

Lucky for you, we’ve rounded up the top five new games you can grab this month for your Xbox 360. Sure, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are all shiny and new, but plenty of titles going to the new-gen consoles are coming to the Xbox 360 as well, making it a great option for those not willing to dive into the new systems quite yet.

1. Assassin’s Creed Rogue

Assassin’s Creed Rogue: Launch Trailer | Ubisoft [NA]Assassin’s Creed Origins is now available! Watch the Official Launch Trailer: #AssassinsCreed In Assassin’s Creed Rogue, you’ll play as Shay Patrick Cormac, an Assassin who turns his back on the Brotherhood to join the Templar cause and hunt the Assassins to the ends of the earth. From New York City to the perilous Arctic…2014-11-10T16:58:20.000Z

Assassin’s Creed Rogue launched yesterday alongside its next-gen sibling, Assassin’s Creed Unity. In Rogue, exclusively for last-gen consoles, you play as Shay Patrick Cormac, an Assassin-turned-Templar who spends the majority of the game killing his old brotherhood. Like Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag before it, there’s naval combat, and the setting is North America (including the Canadian province of Quebec). New to the game is the air rifle, which Shay can use to silently take out enemies at a distance, kind of like Arno’s phantom blade in Unity. Unfortunately, as busy as the developer was, Ubisoft decided to skip competitive multiplayer for Rogue this year.

Release date: November 11

Price: $55.81 (7 percent off MSRP)

2. Dragon Age: Inquisition

BioWare is known for its ability to craft deep, intricate, personal stories. Just look at the best-selling Mass Effect series, which, in this humble editor’s opinion, is the best sci-fi universe to be created in any medium ever. The original Dragon Age was a critical and commercial success, with its long and detailed campaign where choices mattered. Dragon Age II didn’t hold up as well, though it’s still a great game. With Dragon Age: Inquisition, BioWare is going all out in an effort to create one of the greatest fantasy RPGs ever. The developer’s track record proves they’re capable of handling the task, giving players a sprawling world to explore, a brilliant story where player choice matters and a fun combat system players can tailor to their play style.

Release date: November 18

Price: $59.96

3. Far Cry 4

Far Cry 4 – Survive Kyrat TrailerThe setting for Far Cry 4 is dangerous and full of unpredictable characters.2014-10-14T19:44:34.000Z

Do you like first-person shooters set in a giant open world? How about ziplining, hang gliding, big game hunting and killing bad guys? If so, Far Cry 4 is up your alley. The newest addition to the series steps away from the lush environment of the tropics from Far Cry 3 and drops you in the middle of a civil war in the Himalayas. Besides moving your way through the story, there will be distractions to keep your entertained. The most attractive feature is a new one that allows players to invite friends who don’t even own the full game into their world to conquer cooperative missions together. If allowing your buddies to game with you free of charge to them isn’t a great idea, I don’t know what is.

Release date: November 18

Price: $59.96

Buy Far Cry 4 here.

  • New wildlife
  • Massive open world
  • Drop-in co-op
  • Free limited edition with pre-order

The Lego games never fail to capture that special childlike imagination. They allow you to break canon for the sake of fun (I always found it ironic and hilarious to team up with Boba Fett as Han Solo in the Lego Star Wars games, for instance). Plus, there are fun puzzles and plenty of block to smash. In other words, the Lego games are great for kids and adults alike, and even better together. Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham launched yesterday, bringing more plastic brick goodness with it. Complete your training, unlock characters, don disguises and once again save Gotham…and beyond.

Release date: November 11

Price: $59.96

5. Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

VideoVideo related to top 5 best upcoming xbox 360 games – november 20142014-11-12T10:33:19-05:00

Any The Lord of the Rings buff will feel right at home with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. The game is set sometime between The Hobbit and Tolkien’s famous trilogy about Frodo’s quest to Mount Doom as Talion, a Ranger of Gondor stationed near the Black Gate leading into the evil land of Mordor, is forced to watch his family be butchered by Uruks. What follows is a classic revenge action game dripping with Tolkien lore. What sets Shadow of Mordor apart is its nemesis system, which grants military ranks to Talion’s enemies. The Uruks are constantly vying for dominance, and the player can manipulate them to his will using special powers and abilities, making each play a unique experience.

Release date: November 18

Price: $59.99
