Roundtable: Xbox Memories

The VGU staff discuss their best (and worst) memories from Microsoft's past consoles just ahead of the Xbox One launch. (Culture, Gears of War, Ghostbusters : The Video Game, Halo 2, Halo: Combat Evolved, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

PlayStation Memories.
It was a very clever marketing term coined by Sony.
I'm really pleased to see how it has also been taken up by Xbox users who have been inspired by the legacy of PlayStation. My contribution, Halo 2. It took the great gameplay of the first and added online gameplay. Back then it was so amazing.

I use to play Midnight Club three every day on my Xbox. Project Gotham Racing and the Splinter Cell games were cool also.

I remember when Halo 2 wasn't out yet, and Xbox Live was oh so new.

Jedi Academy, anyone?

Halo 2 and Doom 3 wowed me on the original Xbox but The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay blew me away, I'd never played a game like it at the time.

your right @mrdead The Chronicles of Riddick is still and amazing game perfect blend of stealth, action and hand to hand combat good fun, for me the first game that change fore ever was the first ghost recon on xbox especially online I never had such a rush and adrenaline of course until I played halo

Personally my fondest memories are of a program called XBconnect. Had been around since OG xbox release practically. If you don't know it was and still is a sort of free xbox live. I use to play Halo 1 against people all over the world all day long there would be over 200 hosts at any time of day. Those were the days. The funny thing is the majority of the pro's everyone knew from halo 2 got good on xbc H1. I still log onto XBC from time to time and load up some H2 or H1 (if there's servers up) and get my pwn on.
