It’s holiday shopping season, and according to the Christmas trees I started seeing before Halloween, must have been for some time. Yes, the Xbox One just dropped, but Microsoft has no plans to abandon the Xbox 360 just yet. Some of the best games come late in a console’s life. The Xbox 360 had some fine offerings this year, and it’s time to look at some games your friends and loved ones will enjoy.
