Xbox games you should have purchased back in the day, but didn't?
« on: September 07, 2009, 09:33:29 PM »
My top pick?

I purchased some old Xbox demos from a guy for $5. After sorting them out and finding games I never got to try out, here's my results:

1. Conker: Live and Reloaded
I never played the original on N64, but this remake is actually pretty sweet and funny.
2. The Suffering
As a Silent Hill fan, I should have dived right into this without question. No clue why I avoided it, but man this is a freaky game.
3. Unreal Championship 2
I heard it was great, but didn't know anyone who played it.

Not too many, mainly, Psychonauts, Panzer Dragon, Otogi 2, Jade Empire, and Oddworld:Strangers Wrath.

Yeah Psychonauts I'd love to try someday! Otogi demo I have here, I almost listed it, but the demo feels unfinished.

Panzer Dragoon Orta

Oh dear sweet God, I wish this game was ported to Wii or something. Incredible sequel that rivals Zwei.

Just like everyone else, KOTOR is another one I should have listed.

Was never a fan of the star wars games and that kinda kept me from playing kotor.  I bought kotor 1 and 2 about a week ago at a movie gallery getting rid of xbox games and they're awesome.  Was planning on putting them on ebay but I'm at least going to play through them first, possibly they'll make it to the "keep forever" pile.

I did! I personally found the first one better, but the second one was awesome, as well. Made for a fun Halo break at LANs.

Unreal Championship was a great game and two was pretty good. Just not as good as the first...

But they are both worth the buy.

Just bought Unreal championship 2 (Xbox) secondhand, never had an original Xbox so I'm making up for lost time now, not bad for $NZ 5.  Used to fiend Unreal tournament 4 on PC years ago, was up there as one of my favourite games.  Uc2's nearly as good, but not quite, mind you I prefer to aim with mouse than the stick  ;D

I had Panzer Dragoon Orta. I actually had gotten it for like $5 on clearance at Walmart. But I sold it. Don't really regret it, either, since I played it a bit and it didn't interest me enough to play more of it, much less keep it.

I don't think there are any games that I wanted for the Xbox that I don't already have, really.

@ GAMEBOY - your comment was over-dramatic and inappropriate, so I edited it out. If you don't remember what it was, you can ask me. If you do remember, please try not to make remarks like that in the future.
