Selective Creation: Build the Best 25 Original Xbox Games List!



  • Psychonauts
    Panzer Dragoon Orta



  • Psychonauts
    Panzer Dragoon Orta
    Halo: Combat Evolved

    I'm more of a PlayStation guy myself, but I have to give a good game credit when it's due



  • Psychonauts
    Panzer Dragoon Orta
    Halo: Combat Evolved
    Stubbs The Zombie

    I'm going to do something unprecedented here, I am nominating a game that actually kinda stinks. It has interesting ideas but it flails wildly into repetition without any clear sense of direction. So why am I adding it to the list? Because without this game, some of my favorite song covers of all time wouldn't exist. Death Cab for Cutie covering Earth Angel and the absolutely stellar Mr. Sandman by Oranger. I fully expect this game to die in the next thread (although how do you kill a zombie?) but check out the soundtrack when you get a chance, it's excellent.

    Also, @Brannox, the third paragraph in the original post mentions the PSP.



  • Psychonauts
    Panzer Dragoon Orta
    Halo: Combat Evolved
    Stubbs The Zombie
    Halo 2

    Well this game is amazing.



  • Psychonauts
    Panzer Dragoon Orta
    Halo: Combat Evolved
    Stubbs The Zombie
    Halo 2
    Jet Set Radio Future

    Personally I don't like it as much as the original but it's still 75% of the reason I own an Xbox at all, and it's still an awesome game, so I can't ignore it.

    Jet Set Radio Future
    Gunvalkyrie
    Steel Battalion

    The most unique game for the console which once you get over the steep learning curve that is the 40 button controller which comes with a physical in universe Technical Manual it is actually a pretty good game. The sequel was really good but online only so it is completely unplayable today :( Still the original game has a lot going for it!



  • @SabotageTheTruth Thanks for the catch! At least someone out there proofreads! Can't say I do! :grin:



  • Psychonauts
    Panzer Dragoon Orta
    Halo: Combat Evolved
    Stubbs The Zombie
    Halo 2
    Jet Set Radio Future
    Gunvalkyrie
    Steel Battalion
    Jade Empire

    A really fun RPG, it sadly never got a sequel, very underrated and I like it better than Fable.

    The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

    Well, I guess The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. I played this for about an hour at my cousin's house forever ago. I got out of jail, grabbed some spoons, picked the clothes off of a wizard who suffered MASSIVE FALL DAMAGE, and got killed by a tentacle monster (netch) in a swamp. GOTY.

    Picking this because I know nobody else will. Sure hope that Project Gotham Racing 2 and MechAssault make it on...

    Because this is the best horror game on the OG Xbox hands down.

    SUCH a good title, solid gameplay but the game are really underrated and deserves much more press! tactical shooter in class of rainbow 6 series - if not better

    Who would have thought that the Burnout devs could amke a great FPS? One of the best FPSs on Xbox.

    Two amazing games from FromSoftware that I don't think got the attention they deserved. I personally preferred the sequel.
