Top 10 XBox Games

I decided to get rid of my PS2 and go solely on XBOX. However, I've been out of the XBOX loop for a few years now. So I'm hoping that you guys can give me a top 10 on XBOX right now so I can build up my library.

Genre unimportant (can be anything)

Please omit Ninja Gaiden and Splinter Cell 1 as I own them

my top 10:
splinter cell 2 (online)
amped 2
rainbow 6 3 (online)
halo
mvp baseball 04
madden 04
nhl hockey 03
tetris worlds (online)

if you're into online gaming, definately buy splinter cell 2. if you like snowboarding games, amped 2 is the best out there. mvp is the best baseball game ever made. same for madden 04, though 05 is right around the corner. nhl 03 is the best. I hate the new super realistic hockey games.

I don't think I own or have even played 10 different Xbox games, but my favs are:

- Crimson Skies
- Beyond Good and Evil
- Halo
- PGR 2
- Star Wars: Knights
- Splinter Cell
- Prince of Persia

and a couple others I can't remember.

If you like GTA, try getting the double pak as it's supposed have extremely improved graphics.

Omitting Ninja Gaiden, I'd have to say (in no particular order):

1) Prince of Persia
2) The Suffering
3) Amped 2
4) Buffy
5) Buffy: Chaos Bleeds
6) Top Spin
7) Knights of the Old Rebublic
8) Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow
9) Gunvalkyrie
10) Grand Theft Auto Double Pack

Yeah, I'm one of the few that won't put Halo in the top 10. I've got high hopes for Halo 2, though .

It's actually 5 people, cuz I bought it twice... the first time I was kinda bleh about it and my friends convinced me that it was crap and to get rid of it so I sold it. I ended up buying it cheap again and enjoyed it. Haven't finished it thoug since I have about 100 games unfinished and many untouched. Never knew playing video games was such a full time job.
