Ninja Gaiden Black...one of my favorite games of all time. :)

A few more I found fun:

 

Grabbed by the Ghoulies

Tron 2.0

Advent Rising

 

 

Some of the other games I like appear mainly on PC like Arx Fatalis and Thief Deadly Shadows etc. There also was a Conan the Barbarian game released in the UK but I don't think it was exclusive, I imported a copy of that.

I wanted to like the Unreal Championship games, but they stunk. Wish a Breakdown sequel would come, though.

Was that Conan game any good?

Unfortunately not... well lets just say it wasn't horrible and it wasn't great but somewhere around 5 or 6 on a scale of 1-10 for the time, probably holds up worse today but I haven't fired it up in years. It was an average hack n slash game with some awful voice acting etc.  :P. I never finished it.

 

I found the guys that made the game, they still have a patch (PC) and the music up for download (bottom left):

Phantom Dust was a great game on XBL. I had a lot of great laughter moments dodging attacks while waiting for an offensive ability to crop up for me to use.

I didn't like Conker: Live and Reloaded. I played enough of it to say "the original was better" and shelved it. Wasn't there something that could be unlocked buttou needed to be on Live to do it?

Huh....the original was better?  How so?  I loved the game....with the new one simply being updated visuals on the same N64 game, so to me it wasn't better (except for visuals) or worse, but basically the same.

 

BTW, a new Phantom Dust game was just announced/teased within the last 6 months, so you may be interested in looking out for that.

Oooh how about some Metal Wolf Chaos?

I enjoyed the hell out of Phantom Dust when it was still running, too... offline is bland though.

It's nice to see some XBOX Love. Admittedly a lot of the stuff on it doesn't hold up all that well today, but Panzer Dragoon Orta still ranks for me as one of the best games ever created.

They actually made Conker easier. Certain sections were changed or yanked for that to happen. I can't recall what as it's been years but from what I read the eel part where you have to charge a power source was cut out of the remake. Also multiplayer was totally changed.

And a new Phantom Dust? Hmmm......

I have 3 Original XBoxes and they all have some kind of problem related to the power switch or drive.  I've read about it and it sounds like an easy-ish solder job.  It seems that this console is going to be one that probably will require some repair to keep running in the future.  Maybe someone will produce a more consumer friendly solution.

Some of these games were great, some less so...

Looking back, original Xbox was probably the best console Microsoft produced. It had some great titles, even if a lot of them were PC ports

He says in the beginning of the video that he is considering console exclusives and acknowledges that many of the games were available on PC. At that time console gamers and PC gamers were largely separate. I did both but my PC gaming friends scoffed at the idea of gaming on a console.

I have KOTOR 1&2 and Orta.  I can't put my hands on it at the moment, but do you remember a flying game with a city inside a mountain?  I had Steel Battalion and regret trading it every day.

Correct, the Gamecube is nearly infallible and PS2's are a close second.  The disc drives were the first things to fail, and those were during the console's lifetime.  Then the glitches started up, mostly due to bad traces on the MB.  Those were cause either by leaky clock capacitors, or simply bad traces due to poor manufacture/quality control.  Yes, with solder and some wire, you can fix the bad traces very easily.  Even if you can't, you can buy a working system for next to nothing. 

 

It's nice to see some XBOX Love. Admittedly a lot of the stuff on it doesn't hold up all that well today, but Panzer Dragoon Orta still ranks for me as one of the best games ever created.

 

Hmm, don't think they hold up?  They do mostly to me.  You can get 480p (some 16:9) out of nearly all games, and the graphics still look great. 

 

My hope is that someone can recreate the old XBOX Live environment.....

I never stopped playing my original Xbox. I still have plenty of games on my backlog and I try to complete a couple of them a year. I think most games have held up very well.

 

I have long wanted to dive into working on private servers for the original Xbox Live. I have asked around to see if anyone captured packet data and kept it for a rainy day. I haven't found any yet. I have some ideas on how to approach this even without having captured response data. The biggest problem will be dealing with encryption. It may never happen. As a homebrew Xbox developer I have seen very little motivation in the developer community to pursue this kind of project.

I'm with you guys (the two above).  I think the original Xbox games have held up extremely well!  The system clearly has the best graphics potential of the PS2/Xbox/Gamecube generation.

I think a lot of the visuals look like ass today. There are exceptions of course, like Panzer Dragoon Orta, Kakuto Chojin, OutRun 2, Darkwatch, etc., but a lot of its library is quickly starting to look archaic (as many games are from that generation). Even with 480p they still look like doo doo. :P

 

Maybe I've been playing too many modern games lately..

I was mainly referring to the thread itself, not the video. I just figured people here would be trying to throw out exclusives that aren't readily available on the PC.

 

I knew a lot of people back then as well that gamed on both console and PC. Then again, my perspective have been a little biased because I was working in a videogame store at the time. I talked to a lot of multi-plat gamers on a regular basis.

I think you mean TJ&E 3.  They've found a playable version for the DC though.  It still has crashing problems on the higher levels, but it's playable all the way to the end (although there's no ending).

When Dreamcast was canceled, SEGA split their output among the other 3 systems, although strangely almost all as exclusives.  Xbox got I feel the best games from SEGA.  Sure Gamecube got Sonic, but those games didn't differ much from DC versions.  PS2 Japan got tons of classic SEGA stuff, North America/Europe didn't get them.  But Xbox seemed to get the most of the "new" SEGA output.
