8. Halo 2

Speaking of third-person shooters in space, Halo 2 remains to be one of the strongest case of on-console online multiplayer in the early going. It saw servers stay up for the original Xbox version until 2010 (5 years after being considered “last gen”), and PC servers up until 2013. The unforgettable maps, grueling campaign, outstanding soundtrack and a unique take to the first person shooter made Halo 2 provide Microsoft with continued success into the 7th generation of gaming.
