    You knew it was coming...

    Halo: CE
    Halo 2
    KOTOR
    KOTOR 2
    Beyond Good & Evil
    Prince of Persia
    Jade Empire

    Am I missing anything? The library for the platform is pretty thin.

    Sorta, I guess.

    Also curious where the "classic" or "retro" line is drawn. And the Xbox had so few exclusives it's difficult to name classics specific to the Xbox.

    Or else I would say "Morrowind" and end the topic in one.

    Lighten up, eh? He's also made PS2 and GameCube topics. This one was bound to happen, and really this is "classic gaming," not "retro gaming."

    ...I still don't consider the Xbox a "classic," though.

    Why, yes. Yes it is. :D

    I've played NG but I've never personally owned one of the games. I hear they're insanely hard.

    Confirm or Deny?

    Hmm, I never saw any of 3.. Saw some in-game screens and footage from 2 that pretty much looked like 1 just hi-def with moar blood & demony darkness.. In other words, excellent. 8)

    I've only beaten it on normal and hard. Beyond that, yeah it got pretty freaking ridiculous. :shock:

    I see a lack of Crimson Skies in here. As well as Project Gotham Racing, Shemume 2 and Panzer Dragoon Orta and Jet Grind Radio. Sad too see that the dreamcast didn't survive to release the.
