5 Things I Miss About the Original Xbox

You won’t catch me saying that the original Xbox was head and shoulders above the 360, it’s not. However, as all of gamingdom knows, nostalgia is a bitch. It is always 100 percent right, even when it is dead wrong, and makes all that seems mediocre by today’s standards great. I’m not saying the original Xbox wasn't great, that’s not what I’m here to do. I’m just putting on my rose colored glasses to take a peek over my shoulder and gaze blissfully back on a great gaming machine.

the controller was the worst aspect of the xbox, it was horrible! Don't tell it I said that though, it might haunt me when I sleep.

the "original" original xbox controller then yeah I can see your point. The controller-s was way better and the basis for the 360 design.

On topic, i dont miss any of those because i still have my original xbox. I play it now and then because I cant play MGS2 Substance on the 360.

If there was an aspect i disliked was that purchases made for live arcade titles on the original are not transferable to the 360 when it came out.

So on my original xbox i have smash tv, joust, feeding frenzy and zuma that i would have to buy again to play them on the 360. :-(

Ah yes... the good ol' trials. I remember a friend wanting all of the ones that I had, due to the fact I had several and never used them as I still only had dial-up back then.

The original xbox controller wasn't very comfortable for my hands and that dashboard may have been far too simplistic. But I do agree with your other points.

Only thing I miss is the ability to play Mechassault 1 on it..
