Top 10 Best Xbox Games

The very best games available for the original Xbox gaming console.
The Top Ten
1 Halo 2

By the time this came out, I wondered why they even bothered making other shooters. I would play this for days whenever I could. It was a blast! This game is more fun than Black Ops, Ghosts, and Advanced Warfare, and it was made in 2004! I don't know how many hours I spent playing levels on Legendary to collect all the skulls, and played multiplayer for hundreds of hours. This game truly shines.

Forget multiplayer, this has the best campaign, story, and soundtrack of all time. I don't know why everyone cries about the ending - cliffhangers are great! It's better than Halo 3 in every way. Oh, and it also has the greatest multiplayer of all time.

This is the best Halo game out of them all. It has better maps and requires the most skill. It saw the most improvement from Halo 1 and hooked the gaming world with its multiplayer.

2 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Free to roam and do whatever you want with an attitude! Or, you could follow the long storyline by doing missions and finishing the game. Whatever you choose, it's a lot of fun.

You'd have to be mad not to love this game, in San Best Grand Theft Auto and in my opinion, best game of all time.
Get it. Eight years late? Mate this game will last a century.

After Halo 2, this game is the best on Xbox. But all in all, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is the best game of all time.

3 Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic

I really wish there were more games like this. By the way, I have all the games in the top three at the time of this post. All of them are really fun, but this is my favorite.

It is developed by Lucas Studios, and my friend's name is also Lucas. It's a great game!

Best Star Wars game ever.

4 Halo: Combat Evolved

Having two Halo games at the very top should tell everyone how awesome the series is! I have to vote for Halo CE! It's so hard to say which is better, but Halo CE, I feel, was better overall. Halo 2 had a much better multiplayer, but the horrible cliffhanger and the graphic problems I experienced in this game bring it a little below Halo CE. It came so close to beating Halo CE, which I didn't think could be possible. Halo 3 eventually beat both games by far in every way: multiplayer, campaign, graphics, story, guns, vehicles, gameplay, online matchmaking, customization of armor, new features, etc.

Halo CE is a revolutionary game and is the second best in the series, with Reach being the best. CE had one of the best theme songs ever. The Flood in this game was a bit annoying but still very creepy and cool. This game introduced Cortana and, obviously, Master Chief. Though it may have a few repetitive and boring levels, it is still replayable to this day.

5 Burnout 3: Takedown

The last good Burnout game before the series completely lost its mojo. This one still had consequences for hitting other cars which made it way more exciting.

Dang, I forgot this was the original Xbox, not Xbox 360. My friend and I gamed on this back in 2009, and man, it was so much fun. Those were the days...

6 Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
7 Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance
8 Fable
9 Tomb Raider: Legend

How is this not on top? After that flop, Angel of Darkness, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos did amazing! The story is flawless, the boards are amazing, and the character development is awesome. More people need to take a break from first-person shooters and play this!

Vote for this. This is one of the best games I've ever played. Lara is awesome! They added new features like a grapple hook, and the level design is amazing. Buy this; it's awesome! Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

One of the best Tomb Raider games ever! If it wasn't for this, I wouldn't have other Tomb Raider games. Heck, I wouldn't even have half the games I have now. This inspired me to buy more video games.

10 Half Life 2

How on earth is this so low? One of the best-looking and performing games on the Box.

I forgot that this was also available on Xbox. It's mainly a PC game, but since it's here, I might as well give it my vote.

The Contenders
11 Max Payne
12 Conker: Live & Reloaded

One time my mom almost bought me this game as a kid. I was disappointed that I wouldn't get to play it. Now I can see why they put the 17+ rating there.

From an opera-singing pile of manure to more crude humor, this title surely turned the tide of the next-gen gaming arena.

13 The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

Most underrated RPG on Xbox.

In my opinion, one of the best games of all time.

It's way better than Skyrim. The best Elder Scrolls ever.

One of the best Elder Scrolls games made.

14 Knights of the Old Republic II

I felt that this was overall better than its prequel in every way, from converting your followers to being able to finally use Battle Meditation in combat. Sure, some of the Force powers may as well be non-canon, but who cares? It was a fun game that had much variety within it. To this day, I find new routes and dialogue options that I had never even known existed with each playthrough.

Play it any way you want and it's still the best.

15 Ninja Gaiden

This game is just pure awesomeness! Ninja Gaiden for the original Xbox is one of the best-looking and greatest games of all time.

I love this game. It's like Metal Gear Solid mixed with somewhat hack and slash fighting, but it's more one on one.

16 Kill.Switch
17 Star Wars: Battlefront II

Spent too many hours to count on this game. Easily my favorite Xbox game of all time.

One of my favorite games of all time. The graphics have not aged too well, but if you play it on the Xbox One X, then it is a lot better.
