Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Best original Xbox game besides Halo 1/2

Wow, no one's said Crimson Skies, Midtown Madness 3, Stubbs the Zombie, Mech Assault 1-2, or PGR 2 yet?

While not technically exclusives, my picks are Rainbow Six 3 and Ghost Recon 2 which are completely different and better games than the other console versions and PC.

yep Mech Assault was probably my most played game after Halo, Loved Crimson Skies too as well as DOA 3 and lets not forget DOA Extreme Beach Volleyball

Psychonauts, a classic.

I would, but I don't have an Xbone, and doesn't Microsoft lock you out of buying games digitally unless you pay a subscription for Xbox Live?

OG Xbox BC titles work on 360. This includes Panzer Dragoon Orta. Hence, when you buy a OG Xbox game it actually works on both 360 and X1.

I get the impression X1 and 360 are essentially using the same emulator. 

Alas I am in PAL, and apparently the PAL version of the game freezes after a cutscene early in the game when played on 360.

Well that depends if they're actually patching the games to work better. You're reading very old notes.

If you can buy it digitally on your 360, then I would give it a try.

Again though, to download a game on 360 don't you need an XBL subscription? And is the 360's online services even still running?

Nope and yes.

For how long the Xbox 360 service remains operational though remains to be seen. Xbox 360 games are having dwindling populations... So Microsoft may not see it financially viable to retain the 360 services over the long term, just like what happened with the Original Xbox.

The 360's servers are definitely dwindling but still active. I mean there are a bunch of notable games with active populations, the X1 has given a boost to those servers as well. Black Ops II is actually listed among the most played games on X1.

The original Xbox is a different story. It had a small userbase, a much smaller number of notable online games, and it was apparently hindering 360 improvements. 360 games are also an incentive to being a Gold user. Obviously there would be more fervor about 360 servers shutting down. For OG Xbox, I feel it was mostly Halo 2 fans that were upset.

Well. Some games are still active. Majority aren't. (In Oceania at-least, different geographical locations obviously have differences.)
But then again, allot of Xbox One games aren't very active either, like Halo Wars: Definitive Edition and Halo Wars 2.

And Microsoft can leverage the same argument against the Xbox 360 online services at some point.
It's not a matter of if they get shut down, but when.

Since im primarily a PC gamer games, like Kotor 1 and 2 doesn't count since they are better on PC (especially 2) i have to vote for Ninja Gaiden Black. Still to this day one of the best 3D action games and the only way to play it is on one of the Xbox consoles, most connivent being with the xbox one.
