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

If we discount the two games that defined the console for a moment, what other game do you think is the best the system has to offer, and why?

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

If multiplat games are eligible, Half-Life 2, followed by Psychonauts and Morrowind.

If only exclusives count, Ninja Gaiden or Far Cry Instincts.


I've not played it (though I own it) but Jade Empire is likely up there as well.

starcraft - Playing Games = FUN, Talking about Games = SERIOUS

Fable 1. KOTOR 1 and 2. DoA 3. Ninja Gaiden. SW Battlefront 1 and 2. Just to name a few. Out of those, KOTOR 2 is my favorite after Halo 2, I like KOTOR 2 more than Halo 1 personally. 

Half-Life 2.
It's the best game of its time, and it came out on the Xbox.

So many to choose from, stuff the Xbox 360 sorely lacked.

Elder Scrolls Morrowind
Mechassault and 2
Kingdom Under Fire Heroes and Crusaders
KOTOR 1 and 2
DnD Heroes
Conker Live and reloaded
Digimon world 4 (best on XB)

Fable 1.

Fable: The Lost Chapters easily for me.
Although it didn't live up to it's bold promises... It was still an extremely solid and enjoyable game with good pacing.

Although to be fair it's not exclusive, but neither was Halo 1 and 2.

Kotor 2 for anything

fable for exclusive

Muda Muda Muda Muda Muda Muda!!!!

Jade Empire
