Anyone still playing the good ol' Xbox? What games are you playing?

Just getting to Vice City? I didn't start losing interest until San Andreas. The xbox versions are so much better due to controls and graphics. It's so nice to actually be able to read street signs unlike on the PS2.


Man, I have a sealed GTA trilogy. I never really got excited by the GTA hoopla, but saw the trilogy clearanced at CC a long time ago for $14 and I couldn't pass it up. Someday, someday ...

A good thing about being behind on the games is I get to play technically superior versions like you pointed out. Not being able to rotate the camera stinks though.

My backlog is at 194 games, no joke. I just now bought my first game in about a year, Madworld for $7. It will be a long time before I get a Wii but for that price, why not.

Now playing (& watching):

While I'm not playing it at this exact moment in time. Phantom Dust is what's in the box. I still need to beat Morrowind too. 194?! Eep! And I thought I was bad. :P

Can't rotate the camera, really? Thought you could, but it's been such a long time since I played any GTA. After hearing friends rave about Madworld, I got it for 18ish used as GS. One of the few games I've spent 10+ on and it's interesting, but I didn't get into it very much. Wish I had gotten it for 7 too as it's in my massive backlog. I have so many that I have some in boxes on a closet waiting to be played. Probably as many as you. Sometimes I see a good deal like getting two games for $5 at the BB B1G1 and I can't even remember if I have it or not. That's bad.

Best looking game on the og. 720p is beautiful even though it's only 4x3! This game looks better than lots of 360 games. I've probably put months of time onto SC2.

I've been playing ESPN NFL 2K5 ever since it came out, but I have a couple of games I want to finish. Both games are from BioWare, but I think I might only finish Jade Empire, because I don't think KOTOR aged all that, I know the twist, and I liked KOTOR2 more.

I feel like I got a split personality on these: I've got Soul Calibur on Dreamcast, Soul Calibur 2 on Gamecube, and Soul Calibur 3 on PS2. Most of what I remember playing has degenerated to Ivy whipping things *spin spin spin spin*

LOL -- I have the exact same breakout (though I also have SC2 on Xbox). I haven't picked up SC4 though. I'm not that into the SC series anymore. To be honest, I feel the game has almost not evolved at all since 2. 3 was clearly a result of Sony paying Namco for an exclusive :-)

I've been playing through Jade Empire again recently and I suddenly want a sequel really bad. It's a great game, but man the combat really blows at times.

Kinda with you there. The AI in SC4 is either an idiot, or a cheating whore, not much of a balance there.

I recently finished up each story mode for every character in SC4 on :360:. Now going back to finish weapon master mode with Link in SC2 on :gc:, while starting my campaign with Spawn in SC2 on :xbox: this after wrapping up SC3 on :ps2: many years ago.

Soul Calibur 4 does have a nice roster of selectable characters; but Rock and Lizardman? wtf?! padding material. SC4 has a nice and wide variety of non-playable characters, but I have no idea how to recreate them identically in character creation mode.

It's definitely good to see the growing roster after each reiteration.

I need to finish up SC4. . . Spawn is awesome in SC2. Still haven't played 3 that much. I don't quite see how Rock and Lizardman are padding. Lizardman, while a variant of Sophitia, has been in the series since Calibur 1 on DC when he was unlockable after playing for a certain amount of time. And I've been playing Rock since Soul Blade on the PSX. We wore that game out. Rock and Taki are my best characters. I'd rather drop a Rock variant than Rock himself.

I haven't played an original Xbox game in years, however I just received Aggressive Inline the other day through Goozex and have been playing it a bit. I forgot how much fun the Acclaim "extreme" sports titles were. I may have to snag a copy of Dave Mirra 2 one of these days now.

I played a lot of XBox games over the summer. I played through Tony Hawk 2X, Tony Hawk's Underground, Tony Hawk's American Wasteland, SSX Tricky and am working on Rallisport Challenge 2 and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 now.

After falling head over heels with Splinter Cell: Conviction, I've thought about booting up the old Splinter Cell games (I have the first three on XBOX) -- but something tells me I'm going to be disappointed ;-)

If the SC games don't do it, I might go back to the PoP trilogy or Fatal Frame 1 and 2 -- never played those (My FF2 is still sealed) -- problem is my lack of time. Odds are I'll start and never finish. :-(

I just picked up Freedom Fighters, mainly because it's 720p resolution and I wanted to see what the ol' box was capable of in HD. Of all the dozens of other games I have, none of them were > 480p. Supposedly it's a pretty good game besides...

Soul Calibur 2 is 720p and awesome looking. Strangely it is only in 4x3 despite being in 720. Still awesome. Freedom Fighters was pretty good. I'm starting up on the Brothers In Arms series. Just started Road to Hill 30.

My son played Halo 3, does anyone think I should buy Halo or Halo 2 or are they too old already and maybe he will not enjoy them? Do you think they are worth playing? I am going to pick up the new Halo reach for him.

I actually enjoyed the original two more than the third game. Then again, I played them both when they first came out in order. Halo 1 is my favorite but he might find it a bit simplistic compared to the third game. I liked Halo 2 for the online features but those are now long gone. They are cheap enough though, so it's not a horrible way to spend some cash.

I support Rozz 100%.

For anyone playing KotOR II: How are the performance issues on the original Xbox?

I've been trying to go back through on the 360 and the framerate slows to single digits in basically every single damn fight so I'm just wondering if it'd be worth it to dig out the old Xbox instead.

Thanks in advance!
