To celebrate Microsoft's unexpected display of corporate responsibility, I went out to buy my "classic" Xbox. True, it doesn't make any money for Microsoft any more, but a gesture is a gesture. I still need a video to VGA adaptor to make it work with my monitor, though.
I have a copy of Jet Set Radio Future, which I'm very much looking forward to playing, and Counterstrike, so I can hopefully play with my friends back in the UK - but what else should I play? Do you have any suggestions? Let me put it this way:
If I was only going to play one Xbox game, what single game would you recommend?
Here are the restrictions.
- No computer RPGs unless they are indescribably superior to every other cRPG you've played, and are less than 20 hours long - 30 at a pinch. I get sucked into these games, and since I work on making them from time to time, I have to be cautious about feeding this habit.
- Nothing that ends with a punishingly difficult Boss battle. No exceptions.
- No gratuitous hoop jumping, if possible.
If you have "Classic Xbox" game you'd strongly recommend, let me know!
