With Microsoft making their usual holiday push with their latest 360 bundle, I guess it would only make sense to have some stocking stuffers to go with it. With that said, 360 is bringing the heat this holiday with 5 of the biggest titles in the past 18 months. The games that have reached this highly coveted platinum status are: Grand Theft Auto IV, Street Fighter IV, Left 4 Dead, Saints Row 2, and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Not one bit shabby, especially considering some of these will be starting at a cool $19.99. So if there’s anything on that list you haven’t had the chance to play yet, it’s the perfect opportunity to start catching up. Check out each of the games descriptions according to Microsoft, below.
- Grand Theft Auto IV: A powerful modern-day crime epic set in the most detailed sandbox environment ever created. Explore Liberty City as Niko Bellic, an Eastern European immigrant with a war-torn past in search of the American Dream. The dream quickly turns into a nightmare as he struggles to cope with his cousin’s mounting debt and the seedy underworld of Liberty City.
- Streetfighter IV: Brings the legendary fighting series back to its roots by taking the beloved fighting moves and techniques of the original Street Fighter II and infusing them with Capcom’s latest advancements in next generation technology to create a truly extraordinary experience.

Rebuild your empire using an arsenal of rocket launchers, stun guns and satchel charges, and transform your crib, crew and ride with total character customization.

- Star Wars: The Force Unleashed: The saga continues in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, casting players as Darth Vader’s “Secret Apprentice” and unveiling new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy.
