Fun but simple X-Box games?

So I haven't used my X-Box in a long time due to the fact that the games I have suck and I was wondering if anybody had any simple and fun games to recommend? Not something that is necessarly for kids but something that isn't too hard to get into and doesn't implicate long complex missions. Thanks!

I'd recommend some of the Arcade compilation games such as Capcom Classics or Midway Arcade Treasures vol. 1-3. Another game I thought was really fun because of the mini games is Super Monkey Ball Deluxe. If you want something a little more complex yet not too long, Star Wars Battlefront II might be good. I'd play a battle here and there without it taking to long each time.

Burnout 3

Lego Star Wars 1&2 (if you are a star wars fan)

I was going to say Burnout 3 when I read you thread title. It's probably the funnest game I've played all year. Very quick, face-paced action, and there's pretty much something for everyone, whether you like racing or just crashing into stuff. Plus, it's great if you only have like 15 minutes to play.

When I had Xbox I always thought Fusion Frenzy, Kung Fu Chaos and Deathrow were quick fun games, multi player was a nice little bonus too.

Good choices above.

I'd add Serious Sam, Raze's Hell, and the Rallisport Challenge games.

Both Star Wars Battlefronts for a fact. Driving at a cheap price is Rallie Sport, Burnout Series, and Midnight Club. for pure smash'em get Unreal Tournament -Liandri and I'll even throw in Dynasty Warriors 4 & 5 and Dead or Alive Ultimate. The old school Arcade stuff is still fun to.

Great choice. That game was a blast. A bit repetitive towards the end, but definitely worth picking up on the cheap.
