As someone who has never owned an Xbox in his life and has played maybe 2 hours of it ever, did the original Xbox have any exclusives that were good besides Halo? The only ones I remember were Blinx, Voodoo Vince, and Grabbed By The Ghoulies, which were not great. Growing up I really only ever saw the Xbox as the #1 choice if you wanted the best-looking version of a multi-platform game.

It's a very difficult and punishing game that requires you to learn the system inside and out, so naturally game reviewers/journalists hated it.

Exclusives I like:

>Jet Set Radio Future
>DoA 2 Ultimate
>Ninja Gaiden Black (even if I suck at it)
>Knights of the Old Republic
>Republic Commando (kino atmosphere)
>Mechassault 2
>Jade Empire
Avoid Phantom Crush, half the game is mashing the A button so the NPCs shut up. The game would be far better without plot, like if it was mecha Gran Turismo.
Multiplats I like:
>Gemma Onimusha (RE with samurai)
>Star Wars Battlefront 2
>Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3
>Silent Hill 2
>Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance
>Colin McRae Rally 04 (the kinoest rally game ever made, with the possible exception of Sega Rally 2)

>> No.7087372

Definitely pick up the Sega stuff if you're a fan of the Dreamcast. Jet Set Radio Future and Crazy Taxi 3 are very fun and while in Japan and Europe it released on the DC, Shenmue 2 was exclusive to Xbox here in the states so if you're from the US the Xbox is the only way to play it without importing a console from another region or bypassing the region check on your Dreamcast somehow. Panzer Dragoon Orta is another good Sega game for the thing. Another good game you can pick up if you're a fan of racing simulation games is Project Gotham Racing 2. Game's famous for having possibly the best looking visuals on the Xbox as well as just being a stellar racing game. Halo games are obviously a must have for anyone looking to get into the OG Xbox. Another good FPS is Star Wars Battlefront 2, though I'm not sure if that was Xbox exclusive or not since I think it could have come out on PS2 as well. Ninja Gaiden and Ninja Gaiden Black are good too. I'd also recommend Conker: Live and Reloaded, but with a bit of hesitation. It's more heavily censored than the Nintendo 64 version, and many will argue the graphical style is kinda ugly and misses the original intention behind the cutesy, banjo-esque aesthetic of the original. Live and Reloaded has one big advantage over the original though, and that's price. A loose copy of the N64 original will run you about $77. A complete in box copy of Live and Reloaded will run you less than half of that price at around $34. If you have yet to play it and aren't willing to shell out that kind of money for the original, then Live and Reloaded is a fine enough way to experience Bad Fur Day. If you already have the N64 original and liked playing it, you should still go for Live and Reloaded just so you could experience it in a different way and be able to compare for yourself. If you just have no interest in platformers then I guess this whole spiel was useless to you.

Still own the Xbox I bought on release.
Actually own a couple of units.
The Duke controller is fantastic and made for large manly hands.
Great library of games.

Posted what I have to hand at the moment.
Have several games in sleeves and out on loan to the bros and Co. Such as...

Obiwan
Black
Soldier of fortune 2
Conflict desert storm
Brute force
Halo CE
GTA San Andreas
Need for speed underground
Spiderman
And more

I've also traded a whole host of titles and franchises over the life of the Xbox. None of which were a disappointment, simply due to circumstance.

Never bothered with the dvd kit... As I had a combi TV. (a bad choice on Microsoft part to begin with)

Didn't have broadband at the time so never had gold. (it be like that)

This didn't undermine the fun to be had as a stand alone console

My bros had PS2 and gamecubes so I never missed out in that respect. However I am still glad I bought the Xbox. Infact it was my first credit card purchase.
