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.

360 takes it by lightyears for me; it had a massive library with tons of excellent games, generally superior multiplats, amazing graphics for 2005 hardware, Gears 1-3, Halo 3/4/Reach, etc. Yeah, the early models were horribly unreliable, but on the whole, it's a great system.

The original Xbox was a beast in its time, Halo 1-2 rocked, and multiplats were generally best on it, but the controller was less comfortable than 360 and it just didn't have as many great games.

I don't really have anything good to say about Xbox One, so I won't dwell on that.



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

360 by a large margin. Online, unique IP's, better version of multiplats, incredible indie games. XOne doesn't have that same aura to it.



xbox 360
alan wake was my 2010 goty
i really loved that game



Xbox 360 was a great console. A good selection of exclusive games, better versions of most multiplats than its competitors and a great online network.

Also the hardware for the time it came out was incredibly powerful and being a 2005 console the fact that it could still run current multiplat games at all is amazing.

I loved the OG Xbox and the 360 but because of the possibility of great open world games like dying light or a great looking gta 5 and the online games like halo 5 or titanfall perhaps forza 6 if you race online, i think the xOne is the best of them



360 was both the best and the worst, imo.

360, multi's were superior.

The difference between 360 and PS3 versions was way smaller than the difference between Original Xbox and PS2. ;)

Really? Only played Halo on the Xbox, nothing else. I was Dreamcast all the way and then jumped to PC when that ended.

Agreed. Not only do the best looking 360 games still hold up remarkably well, but the fact that it could still run a lot of multiplatform games as recently as last year, a decade after its release and well after the arrival of successor says a lot.
