The best games for parties are the ones where anyone can play because the concept is easy to catch on to. This is why games like Call of Duty are not always going to be the best choice as they are only for hardcore gamers

Best Xbox 360 Party Games

Video games are mean to be a shared experience. That is why they make the Xbox capable of having 4 controllers and the PS3 with even more! Still, I get this question asked quite a bit (because I am a hardcore gamer) that if you think video games are the best way to go, then there is no better way to liven up a party than with the following video games.

Guitar Hero

Guitar hero was probably the first of the musical games to become mainstream. There are a few reasons for its mainstream success but I think the main one is that it is able to pick out all the casual gamers who may not play FPS or RPGs on a regular basis. The objective of the game is simple enough, all you really need is a simple mastery of rhythm as well as a kick ass controller decked out with Guitar Hero Skins hopefully. Anyone can learn how to play within a matter of minutes (although to play well is another story). That makes it the perfect way to inject a little competition into the party.

DJ Hero

OK this might not be too much different but the only reason I mention it is because I personally love DJ Hero much more plus the music is more my taste. Churning out beats based on the work of such groups like Daft Punk is sure to be more popular among some circles than the power ballads that are often on Guitar Hero. Also, there are DJ Hero Skins as well so you can deck out your turntable controller however you wish.

Rockband

Of course if you are hardcore into music games then rock band might be right up your alley with its mix of several different instruments, you can definitely rock out to some classic tunes without going through the trouble of learning to play the instruments themselves.
