Yeah indeed, a lot of my mates at the time referred to it as a mid range gaming PC in a box. I guess it was in the name originally :) just a Direct X box for playing your games.
I know what you mean though back when it launched it was an all inclusive package for playing games too, no fiddling around with hardware, no need for gaming mouse/keyboards just took out all the hassle and gave games like Morrowind on the big screen. (I lost so many hundred hours into my GOTY version of that you wouldn't believe).
My question was more just a case of... if you look at a console and think what are the best games that it bought to the table, say... if it was the GC you wouldn't often go to games which were on other platforms too, or the same with the SNES you would rarely go to games which also had megadrive ports, but this persons list exclusively are games which also appear on the PC.
I think he missed some glorious games which were only on the Xbox like Blinx the Time Sweeper and the amazing remaster of Conkers Live and Uncut.
The platformer stuff may not have appealed given he named several WRPGs.
Anyhow, people are clearly remembering Xbox for what it gave them at the time. PC being a more viable option now doesent change their memories with Xbox. Frankly, we might have missed the window to enjoy those games if PC was the only option.
