Default Just got an Xbox.

Well, I just went out and bought myself an Xbox. I've got Jade Empire on preorder and Mech Assault 2 inbound.

Any game suggestions?

I enjoy the SSX Series alot on it, The only reason I got my Xbox is because I got it for free... theres really not many Xbox Exclusive games that I own/play.

Im getting Jade Empire as soon as I find it, but Gamespots review let me down alot, Load times are claimed to be worse then KOTORs. =\

I had an Xbox when it first came out. I ended up continuing to spend much more time on my PS2 than the Xbox so after 6 months I sold it. I thought the Xbox controller sucked compared to the PS2, and the console seemed to be a "me too" console in terms of most games on the Xbox were on the PS2 as well.

Halo is of course a good game. I never tried Halo 2 but I'm sure it's decent. Jade Empire sounds cool. If I still had the system, I might check that one out.

Halo 1.....not 2. 2 is just a graphics showcase, while 1 is pure gameplay.

Spending more money on your PS2 than Xbox? pff, what a.. I mean, your call but daaamn! I only considered PS2 for the MGS-series, but that's it.
All games that are multiplatform, are generally prettier on the xbox, IMO Xbox has the greater exclusivetitles and lets not forget the much better online-capabilities. You could've waited for Xbox 2, but Xbox was IMO the best console you can buy today.

So which genres are you mostly after? Do you intend to play games such as Splinter Cell 3: Chaos Theory on the PC still or..?

Halo2, republic commando, Fable, and Splinter Cell CT. Co-op in split screen looks and works great.

I might give Halo 2 a try when it's cheaper. I already have a bunch of games I want to play, have to cut back on my expenses. Thanks for the suggestions people.

Halo should definitely be on your list, as well as Ninja Gaiden. If you haven't played Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (the first one) yet, you can get that cheap and it's an incredibly good game.

Ninja Gaiden, Halo 2 (if for nothing else, the online multiplayer), Deathrow (great game!), etc.

Actually, YES, PoP:Sands of Time is REALLY great. Runs wonderful on xbox too, and you can find it for about 20 bucks usually.
