A friend of mine was clearing out his old electronics. I got a free Xbox (original, not a 360) out of the deal. I have never had one and I have never paid any attention to what is out there. What games should I look for? I have a PS2 and a Wii already, so I am mainly looking for Xbox exclusives. I don't care about Halo. I like a lot of casual games and pick-up-and-play type stuff. Any thoughts?

Well it's been done on other systems, but if you haven't played Ninja Gaiden Black, definitely try that one. Pirates was fun to a lot of people but you have to like that type of game. Also if you like Star Wars and RPG at all you MUST get Knights of the Old Republic I and II. Awesome games.

Did Psychonauts come out for the PS2? Cause that was a great platformer type game. Jade Empire was another kinda RPG one that everyone loved.

The X-Box version is apparently superior to the PS2 version of Psychonauts, so there's that to consider.

I would recommend Max Payne, and then Max Payne two. They are both excellent games. You should be able to pick up the first one for like 5 bucks.

Thanks for the suggestions. Will have to look into Ninja Gaiden Black and Psychonauts.

I wound up getting two games from the same friend who passed along the Xbox - Halo 2 and some Star Wars game - so I guess I will give those a try first.

Also, I ordered Toe Jam & Earl III because I loved the Genesis version so much (I know the Xbox reviews were bad, but it sounds bad in the same ways that the Genesis version was bad, so I'm fine with that).

Does Xbox Live still exist for Xbox (not 360) users?

Yes, Xbox Live can still be used. You can play Halo 2 against people who are using their 360's even, though I imagine there aren't as many people playing that now. I know some people hate Halo 2 but I have to wonder if they ever tried the online play. The single player game is just ok, though I enjoyed the first Halo way more(some cool twists). But online play is just absurd stupid fun. A totally different experience.

I don't know about EB Online, but if you pre-order at EB Stores you'll get it on the release day. I've got nothing but good things to say about the guys and gals at EB.
