Thought it might be good to have a counterpart to the 360/one threads.

What original Xbox game are you playing? Either through B/C or on original hardware? Feel free to throw in remasters too if it pads this thread out!

I'm currently playing Star wars Battlefront as it was on GwG a while back. Just finished the prequel campaign. The game is OK, became a bit hard 2/3rds of the way through so I lowered the difficulty because I was losing interest on my 5th retry! Will probably get on to the original era campaign tomorrow

Unreal Championship 2: The Liandri Conflict. Loved it back in the day and didn't notice until just a few days ago it was added to the bc list.

Burnout 3, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 and Pro Evolution Soccer 5 right now, all via Xbox 360 backwards compatibility. I'd love to see the first two enhanced for Xbox Series X eventually.

I managed to find an OG Xbox with all the cables in a charity shop about a month ago. Cleaned it up and it works fine. Have it plugged into an old CRT tv next to my PS2 and GameCube (let’s party like it’s 2003!). The only game I’ve played on it is Project Gotham Racing so far.

@Gamecuber such a great console generation that was i kind miss it honestly so many great games and none of the crap that plagues the modern systems

@FraserG I loved THPS4! I played it so much on my GameCube. It's easily the best one along side THPS2.

I was planning on buying an original Xbox and THPS2X from America when I go this summer but I suspect that plan will be nixed by the current pandemic. That was always an enhanced version I was gutted we didn't get in the UK.

@FullbringIchigo just out of interest, what in particular don’t you like about modern systems? For me paid for DLC and online unpleasantness is a pain (I am very selective with the former and avoid the later like the plague!)

I on the other hand, games on hard drives, cloud saves between systems, online stores and Gamepass are excellent!

@Gamecuber DLC, microtransactions, day one updates, broken buggy games those kind of things

@FullbringIchigo I avoid day one gaming for that very reason (plus I’m not paying through the nose for something I can get for a fraction of the price later on).

After reading through this thread, I've suddenly gotten compelled to bring out my old Xbox and start playing through my backlog. So I did, and I decided to first play Mafia on the system since it's the only Xbox game I own that isn't backwards compatible on either 360 or One, so I might as well play through it first.

The game is so far pretty good, although a lot of stuff is really annoying me but that's because it's an old game. For example, the controls are not intuitive. You have to press down the black button in order to lock on to enemies, and the white button when you want to shoot out of a car. Really not optimal controls at all since the buttons are so far down on the controller. Shooting at least feels decent, although if you're too close to an enemy the bullets won't register at all.

The most annoying part is definitely that you have to obey the traffic rules or else the police will be on you like a swarm of bees. For example, you can't drive when it's a red light, you aren't allowed to drive faster than 60 mph and so on. It tries to be a realistic game but that only makes it less fun, it's definitely not like GTA where the cops come after you only if you kill someone or blow something up.

One thing that makes this game more bearable is that it autosaves whenever you get a new objective, so at least the checkpoint system is decent enough. The story is pretty good too, although the cutscenes can drag on for too long which makes it less interesting to follow.

Overall good game thus far, but I have a feeling that I'm not going to beat it just because the missions can get pretty unfair sometimes. We'll just have to see!

@KratosMD That's was one reason I enjoyed Mafia alot more then GTA was the realism. That you couldn't just blow through redlights, you had to stop and put gas in the car etc. I was disappointed that Mafia III took that stuff out.

@Deljo is that Black as in the FPS shooter? I loved that on PS2 back in the day!

The recent remake of Panzer Dragoon inspired me to replay Orta last night. Beautiful game. It is incredible on the One X. Got to level 6. Going to pick it back up tonight.
