Regardless of what kind of person you are, there’s usually a video game out there, somewhere, that you’ll enjoy. Recently, hunting video games have been really hitting it big, and Cabela’s has noticed this trend and produced some of the best hunting games for the Xbox 360. Cabela has done such a great job with their games that they have earned all top three spots on this list! Hunting games are enjoyed by many people, even people who don’t typically enjoy video games. The concepts and plot involved in a hunting game require less time and background like many video games do. Here’s my own personal top three hunting video games for the xbox 360.
1. Cabela’s Alaskan Adventures
Maybe I’m just partial to anything Alaska themed (I’m an Alaskan), or maybe it’s that fact that Alaska is one of the most popular hunting destinations in the world. From big game like moose, caribou and bear, to smaller game like grouse and rabbit, Alaska has it all. Is it any wonder Cabela’s would create a game after the amazing hunts that can be had here?
Cabela’s Alaskan adventures was released in 2006 and has had a great deal of popularity grow over the years since it’s release. Based off of the Alaskan wildlife, players go on hunts for various animals, but it’s not just a point-and-shoot kind of game. Players can be attacked by animals and may face deterrents when chasing down an animal, such as not being allowed to shoot within so many feet of buildings. Definitely a great game for young and old alike!
2. Cabela’s Big Game Hunter 2010
The newest addition to the Cabela’s hunting game for the xbox 360 family, Big Game Hunter 2010 doesn’t stray from the excellent game crafting that Cabela’s has shown in other games. One of the most impressive aspects of this game is how stunningly realistic the scenery is during the hunts. The main character, Jack, must go through a series of hunts in order to be accepted into a exclusive hunting club. The hunts that occur throughout the game are trials to determine whether or not you’ll be accepted, and with instant feedback on your hunting performance, players can focus on what skills they need to fine-tune during their quest for membership!
3. Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts ’09
Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts ’09 was a great addition to their ever-expanding collection of hunting games for the xbox 360. This game is slightly more intense with even more dangerous animals and tasks to complete! The main character had a friend who was killed by a bear and is on a quest for the perfect trophy animal, and won’t rest until he’s taken on the fiercest, most dangerous animals there are! While hunting these animals, don’t be surprised if you get charged and are forced to fight off the vicious predator using only melee defenses! If you’re not quick though, other animals could join in on the attack!
