The Xbox has been the undisputed leader in the gaming world for over a decade. Microsoft’s current console is now in its tenth generation and has sold more than 100 million units to date. But, for some, this might not be enough. So we’ve picked out the 30 best original XBOX games of all time. You can find out more about the console here. Microsoft was in the home-console business, but they didn’t have the marketing budget to compete with Sony and Nintendo.
This new console tried to sneak in and steal a piece of the pie, but it was so much better than the original and its sequels that it took over the whole pie. So not only did it eat the entire pie, but it also made sequels that were better than the originals. It shows how much I knew back then!
Top 5 Original Xbox Console Games
Here are the following top 5 original Xbox Console games. Please read it and choose your favorite one.
Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II
Major League Baseball (MLB) is the most popular sport in the world, and it is played in more than two hundred cities across the globe. It has also spawned various video games, including the Baseball Mogul series, which has sold more than twenty million copies since it was first released in 1997.
MVP Baseball 2005
With the MLB The Show 21 game finally out, we can finally say we’ve seen the best baseball game ever. It has everything a baseball fan could want: the swing mechanics, the fielding, the pitching, and the baserunning. And the rosters are so accurate that they feel like you’re playing for the teams. The only thing missing is the fan experience, but that’s what MLB The Show 19 was all about. You’ll be impressed by how many features and options the game has, but MVP Baseball 2005 is a wonderful game that can be enjoyed for many years to come.
Burnout 3: Takedown
Burnout 3: Takedown is the only driving game on this list, and it’s also the one that’s most like Burnout’s Crash mode. But it’s also the game where Criterion realized it was more than just an afterthought. Instead, it was a pillar of the entire game. But it wasn’t a one-note racer. Instead, it was a car-smashing game that included modes like a racing minigame and a street race. Burnout 3: Takedown has aged less well than its predecessors, but it still offers a great mix of racing and takedown combat and can still offer some significant challenges for those who want to improve their skills.
Psychonauts was released on the Xbox in 2005 and was a critical and commercial success. So it’s poetic that Microsoft ended up buying Double Fine and publishing Psychonauts 2 over a decade-and-a-half later. This is a game where you play as a telekinetic who can manipulate objects and people, and you’ll soon learn that Raz is a bit of a jerk. But you can’t help but love him.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time took an early gaming classic and reinvented it in a near-perfect way for Xbox. Platforming and puzzles are the backbones of Sands of Time, with combat serving only as a last resort. Still, that combat was wonderfully handled, as the Prince was no bulletproof superhero. He wouldn’t take much damage before succumbing to his wounds, and so you needed to rely on your wits instead. The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time offers an engaging, innovative, and elegant new take on the classic series.
