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.

I agree. We used to have an Xbox at school, and my lunch times were devoted to Halo 2. The only map we played was Headlong. I now know the map like the back of my hand.

2 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

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.

Best game ever. It has a little bit of every game: flying, superpowers, killing, and even dating. Just awesome.

San Andreas grants a lot of features to the players and has an outstanding audio quality!

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

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.

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.

I love Halo, and this is the game that started it all. Very few can compare to its graphics at the time, the story, the soundtrack, the adventure, the multiplayer. This game blew me away.
When my brother first picked this up, I was unhappy because science fiction and fighting aliens were not my thing. I ended up becoming a bigger fan than he is. This is one heck of a game!

To the other person that mentioned Halo 2 doesn't have a level that can compare to Assault on the Control Room or Two Betrayals, thank you. I couldn't agree more. I go by the single-player experience when voting, and the original Halo's is second to none.

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 Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance
7 Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
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 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.

13 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.

14 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.

15 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.

16 Kill.Switch
17 Panzer Dragoon Orta
18 Conker: Live & Reloaded

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

19 Shenmue II
20 Grand Theft Auto III
21 Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne
22 The Simpsons: Hit and Run

The Simpsons is a great TV show, but the games are even better. And this is one of the best Simpson games.

The best Simpsons game.

Fun, fun, and more fun!

23 Grand Theft Auto Double Pack

Grand Theft Auto 3 and Vice City in one pack. How could you go wrong?

24 Sims 2

Love Sims! They are better on the computer, but they are still good on Xbox and PS2.

25 Soul Calibur 2
