Their list:

Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

Psychonauts

Jade Empire

Chronicles of Riddick

All first-rate titles.

In addition to that, both Halo and Fable can be had for $9.99 each. Since someone doubted me on those prices the other day, here's proof:

Oh, and all but Riddick are 360-compatible:

I bought Stranger's Wrath from Sears for 5 bucks brand new, that should be on that list. Phantom Dust should be there as well especially since it's BC and GORGEOUS on the 360 when it's upscaled. Everything or Nothing was also worth the 6 dollars I spent on it. And my favorite 3 of the bunch: Otogi, Otogi II, and Panzer Dragoon Orta.

GREAT list! Loved Otogi (never should have sold it), and I still have the copy of Panzer Dragoon Orta I got at Best Buy for $9.99 on closeout.

Stranger's Wrath is STILL one of my favorite games for ANY console, and &%$#*@ it, it's not backwards-compatible yet!

... when I first bought it, I just thought it was 'meh'. A few months ago I gave it a 2nd chance, and after playing it a while it really grew on me. The first couple of missions are pretty straight-forward and 'bland', but after a while it gets better.

Sadly, once I reached the better parts, my Xbox died on me. So now I'll have to start all over again.

Same thing with Psychonauts btw. Nearly finished it, and now I gotta re-do everything. Ah well... :)

No Ninja Gaiden? The list fails.

... no Ninja Gaiden Black!?
NGB is much better than POP or Jade Empire.

I'm a huge kung fu buff, but Jade Empire couldnt hold my interest once the story arrived in the big city with the cemetary.

My top 5 xbox games would be:

- Ninja Gaiden Black
- Rallisport Challenge 2 (best rallygame ever, and definately one of the best racing games ever. Fantastic level-design and atmosphere and gameplay)
- Psychonauts
- Pro Evolution Soccer 5: still play it pretty much daily.
- Def Jam Fight for New York, awesome game, although certainly not perfect.

Ofcourse, my top 5 is not set in stone, and from time to time my favourites will differ. There are about 15-20 orso games on the xbox that I really enjoy. SSX3 and NBA Street 3 definately deserve a mention, as well as Forza and Splinter Cell Chaos Theory (brilliant game)

Sad to say I have never played Beyond Good and Evil though.

I have played most of the titles on the pc and Chronicles of Riddick is pretty good, better than what I expected.
