One of the best things about modern Xbox consoles in the year 2021 is that you can still play hundreds of great games spanning the history of the brand, including from both the original Xbox and the Xbox 360.
In the case of the original Xbox though, there aren't actually as many compatible titles as you might think, with just 42 supported in all.
