With the impending addition of OG Xbox games to the Xbox One's backwards compatibility program, collecting old OG Xbox content might not be such a bad idea. AllGamers discusses a few key things to keep in mind when collecting for the OG Xbox.
I still have some pretty good OG classics in my collection. Fusion Frenzy, Crimson Skies, Ninja Gaiden, Bloodwake, Brute Force, Links, Topspin, Otogi 1&2, Gunvalkary, Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, PGR2...im just wating on Microsoft to give me the green light (pun intended).
Co op splinter cell is one of the best coops ever
A current gen Brute Force, Ninja Gaiden, Otogi and Splinter Cell would be incredible. Backwards compatibility is awesome in itself though
Brute Force for the win! I thought we would have seen a sequel for it on 360 but it never happened 😔
Dude...that would be rediculous!
"Brute Force" *Raises fist at timotim* lol I used to have so many OG games man but only have The Return of The King, GTA San Andreas & 2002 FIFA remaining. I'm more than happy to repurchase them with the current $10 pricing that's going around though! Can't wait!!
Crimson Skies is the best.
Great list. Brings back so many memories. My brother still has my OG xbox and all the games I ever bought. If only I had the time to re-play them...
I have close to 50 OGXbox games. But I'm a collector in general, and I got some rather cheap at some point, or got actual collectible items, which if sealed, will likely stay sealed. There are some I do look forward to playing since I never picked up any console which could play them before. There were quite a few good games on MS first foray into the console market.
I´m very happy with the initial offers, but i´m still hopping to MS to add Otogi 1 and 2, Shenmue 2, Both Kingdom Under Fire and Jet Set Radio Future! :)
Got some OG games in my cases still. Thank goodness for physical.
Hey.... an opinion piece that doesn't make me roll over with laughter. Nice. OG Xbox is most definitely worth collecting for. Along with any retro system really. Most multi-plat games from that generation looked best on Xbox though, with better resolution support, and are definitely worth having on it.
And being able to use my Xbox One controller on these old games is a plus for me.
Not sure if I will try Crimson Skies or SWKOTOR first.... So very cool.
I have a few saved in my collection as well. Cool how this worked out.
Way ahead of you. I still have all my Xbox games. Roughly 125 of them.
Damn my man...I wish I kept most of them...I really do, but I sold a ton over the years.
I have both KOTORs and battlefront 2. I think I'm set.
I've been collecting OG Xbox since 2011 and, in contrast to the 360 and Xbox One, it has a HUGE supply of excellent exclusives. And since the Xbox was the most powerful console of the 6th generation, it has the definitive versions of many console exclusive games. It really puts the 360 and XBone to shame. Some of the highlights: Azurik: Rise of Perathia Black (definitive version of the game) Blood Wake Breakdown Brute Force Buffy the Vampire Slayer Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds (definitive version of the game) Conker: Live and Reloaded Crazy Taxi 3: High Roller Crimson Sea Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge Dai Senryaku VII: Modern Military Tactics Dead to Rights (definitive version of the game) Deathrow Destroy All Humans! (definitive version of the game) Dungeons & Dragons Heroes Freedom Fighters (definitive version of the game) Galleon: Islands of Mystery Genma Onimusha (definitive version of the game) Godzilla Destroy All Monsters Melee (definitive version of the game) Godzilla Save the Earth (definitive version of the game) Grabbed by the Ghoulies Gunvalkyrie House of the Dead III (includes HotD 2 as an unlockable) Hunter the Reckoning (definitive version of the game) Hunter the Reckoning: Redeemer The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction (definitive version of the game) Jet Set Radio Future Justice League Heroes (definitive version of the game) Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes Kung Fu Chaos Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (definitive version of the game) Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (definitive version of the game) MechAssault MechAssault 2: Lone Wolf Otogi: Myth of Demons Otogi 2: Immortal Warriors Panzer Dragoon Orta Phantom Crash Phantom Dust Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy (definitive version of the game) Rocky (definitive version of the game) Rocky Legends (definitive version of the game) Shenmue II (much better than the DreamCast version) Silent Scope Complete Tao Feng: Fist of the Lotus Tenchu: Return from Darkness (definitive version of the game) TimeSplitters 2 (definitive version of the game) TimeSplitters: future Perfect (definitive version of the game) ToeJam & Earl III: Mission to Earth Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2X (includes all the content from THPS 1&2 with all new content) Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 (definitive version of the game) Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 (definitive version of the game) Urban Chaos: Riot Response (definitive version of the game) Voodoo Vince The Warriors (definitive version of the game) Xyanide Yager
Team Xbox is getting back to that with X I feel. Will have the console definitive editions going forward and hopefully Spence gets the first party ball rolling. Return of the X.
I have been thinking about starting collecting OG Xbox stuff, because the system really isnt half bad at all. Some of the multiplats were so much more better (Rainbow Six 3 for example was super linear on PS2, but much more open on Xbox, being much closer to Raven Shield on PC), and its not a region locked system. I also believe resolution output was slightly better than on the PS2? Though the machine is big, so Im not sure if I have the space for it in my current setup. I have already bought Rainbow Six: Critical Hour for it, because it was never released in the EU and I happened to stumble upon a copy, so yay for the OG Xbox being a region free system. Now, if only I got the machine 🤔
