The best xbox is the big black one. I don't like the clear green one.

Halo. A great game that I still play 2.5 years later.

Such a pity that the game was released at launch. It could have been so much better with another 6 months of development time.


After that, I'll say Ninja Gaiden. Although less skilled players need not apply.

Halo in 1st, followed closely by Halo, with Halo coming in 3rd.

Honorable Mention to Knights of the Old Republic, Project Gotham 2 (best live game out there), Splinter Cell 1 (far superior single player game than Pandora), and Prince of Persia

If you're into shooters, then Halo is the way to go. If you're into RPG's, then Knights of the Old Republic is the only choice. I've not stopped playing either since I purchased them. Longevity is always a good example of a great game.

I think this thread should be titled:

Besides Halo, In Your opinion what is the best xbox game out right now?

It's like saying PC's rule over Mac's anyday... but some of you know that already...

But back to the thread at hand... I thought Crimson Skies was pretty cool.

I played Halo - and I was completly underwhelmed. The game was undermined by the sheer fact that shooters on consoles suck. The controls just aint natural - gimme a mouse and keybord any day of the week.

Knights of the Republic, on the other hand gets the most play on my box. It's quite the game.

I found it listed on ebay. Sweet isn't it? I think it's an Australian release, but who knows maybe it'll be stateside, too.

The reason I'm posting this is because it's difficult to choose from these games, or even games that didn't make this list. I have 88 games for the Xbox and I could easily say that half of them are must-buys for the system for some reason or another.
