Microsoft's original Xbox had one of the strongest lineups of launch games in history, but what were the best games on the console?

Yup, just as thought. the most games in the list are multiplatform titles ;) But just how is Burnout 3 there but not Project Gotham Racing 2 which was at least a great exclusive title? The only one never re-released on another system from this list btw.

What's your point? The list is the best games on the original Xbox, not the best exclusives. Some of the best PS2 games weren't exclusive either. Who cares?


Best selling PS2 game is San Andreas, not an exclusive :)

@logicwins actually GTA sa was a timed exclusive for about a year GTA 3 and vc longer from memory. imagine that today GTA vi being exclusive to Xbox or PS for a year it would be a huge loss.

Idk if they were launch games but I remember playing jet set and fusion frenzy man those were good. I was pretty young at the time.

HALO is still my top 5 series of all time.

The game that made me an RPG nerd.

Still one of my all time favorites.

Morrowind was revolutionary. Such a great game.

Don't forget Chronicles Of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay! That game on Xbox was way ahead of it's time!

My bad, I played that one a lot.

Not very impressive. It seems like the Xbox got big because it was different, not because it had games that other consoles didn't have. Eventually, novelty wears off and it takes selling sub. services to stay afloat.

The original Xbox was a joke until it got Halo, then everyone wanted one, I remember all the jokes people used to make in high school about it. But Halo and Gears is pretty much what kept Xbox afloat initially, and Microsoft likes to go back to those franchises, I also fondly remember Conker and DOA on there too.

I almost forgot about Conker. I played that one more than any other. Such a good game. MS had some gems here and there, but the total product was not even close to the PS1 which release about 5 years earlier.
