3    Orange Box, The    96
4    Gears of War    94
5    Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The    94
6    Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare    94
7    Halo 3    94

I really didn't think that GTA4 was better than any game in that top five. I'm really surprised it received better reviews than Bioshock.

I guess that's what hookers will do for you.  :P

This should wrap things up for the 360, as of the end of 2008.  A few minor changes from the last snapshot:

1     Grand Theft Auto IV     98
2    BioShock    96
3    Orange Box, The    96
4    Gears of War    94
5    Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The    94
6    Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare    94
7    Halo 3    94
8    Gears of War 2    93
9    Fallout 3    93
10    Braid    93
11    Guitar Hero II    92
12    Rock Band    92
13    Rock Band 2    92
14    Mass Effect    91
15    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter    90
16    Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix    90
17    Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2    90
18    Forza Motorsport 2    90
19    Call of Duty 2    89
20    Left 4 Dead    89
21    Portal: Still Alive    89
22    Rez HD    89
23    Castlevania: Symphony of the Night    89
24    Fable II    89
25    Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas    89
26    Burnout Revenge    89
27    Dead Space    89
28    NHL 09    89
29    Virtua Fighter 5    89

That's the top 20, with ties.  And again, for comparison: the PS3 scores and the Wii scores.

Also, for a good laugh, the "worst" games on the 360 (everything with a Metascore below 40):

522  Rock Revolution     39
523    Coffeetime Crosswords    39
524    Pimp My Ride    38
525    Kengo: Legend of the 9    38
526    Vampire Rain    38
527    Hour of Victory    37
528    Rocky and Bullwinkle    37
529    Frogger 2    37
530    Destroy All Humans! Path of the Furon    36
531    Double D Dodgeball    36
532    History Channel: Battle for the Pacific, The    35
533    Bomberman: Act Zero    34
534    Jumper: Griffin's Story    29
535    Yaris    17

If anyone one of you has bought one of these games, please identify yourself.  The men in white coats will be around shortly to fetch you.

Was GTA IV really that good to snag #1?  Last one I played was Vice City...

Castlevania: SOTN is an awesome game too, but if you want to get technical, isn't it really a Playstation Game at heart?  :P

And despite it's score, I'm slightly intrigued that there is a 360 game completely based on the Yaris - but not enough to find it and play it.

Yaris is no more.

Castlevania: SOTN is a great game regardless of the system.  I wonder if the reviews talked more about the port then the game itself.

It's been a barren year for AAA titles, hasn't it?

Where is BF:BC2?  Hard to believe GoW2 is more popular.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has a Metascore of 88, so it's not terribly far outside of the top 25.
