    I can vouch for Mechassault 1 and 2 + Blinx 1 and 2 along with Conker and Halo.
    I enjoyed Jet Set Radio Future a bit so you can add that as well.
    Other then that, those are the exclusives.
    I also recommend Black.
    It looks stunning on the old Xbox, absolutely stunning!
    Looks better then most launch 360 games.

    The list includes interesting things like Sudeki and possibly Arx Fatalis (since open sourced on the PC) but if we eliminate things you can also get on the PC* the list shrinks to something most people could probably memorise. If you include the odd sequel or remake (like the Ninja Gaiden games-- Ninja Gaiden black is an amazing game but you can do well with the sequels and PS3 remake) then oh dear. I am assuming we do not need to look at things like Forza, Dead or Alive and Project Gotham -- there have been things that have aged far far worse but I do not imagine you will get much out of them today, however as you specifically mentioned fighting games you could probably get something out of it from a history type perspective (it is not going to be like a classic 2d fighting game sort of thing, or even much in the way of an arcade classic or good systems). I could include things like Shenmue II (which was not released on the Dreamcast in North America) and might just be the better version (certainly a better controller).

    *remember this was the early 2000's so it is not like you need a good PC by today's standards.

    Gunvalkyrie was not bad for an almost panzer dragoon... actually no closer maybe to Lost Planet... actually... It is a third person shooter and a Japanese take on steampunk. I will certainly not blame anybody for not remembering it in ten years but if you see it then I would grab it.

    Having mentioned Panzer Dragoon then Panzer Dragoon Orta is definitely worth grabbing if you like rail shooters.

    If by some miracle you find a copy of Steel Battalion with the controller for a reasonable price then go that.

    If you have not played the N64 Conker game then I would probably go with this version, though sitting down and watching http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLFP9r6vJL2qCCERMBP_ZWUEV0vaSL4rHf might be the better option still.

    After this we are looking at more history of game design type things and the xbox had some reasonable stuff there, had people played as much of the xbox library as they could then they might not have reacted quite so strongly to the likes of Alan Wake and whatever Quantic Dream put out. Now those are probably better games but things like Phantom Dust and Breakdown might be worthy of a look in somewhere.

    Otherwise the original xbox was mainly a home for various PC games and some decent stabs at multiplat if you do not fancy futzing around with PS2 modding in 2014. Also emulators and XBMC but that is less of an issue today (though I might just peg it ahead of the Wii for this sort of thing).

    As for co-op http://www.co-optimus.com/games.php?system=5&playerCount=2&countDirection=at least

    On toe jam and earl.... now the shift to 3d killed many previously better games stone dead (see also Sonic) where this actually kind of worked. If you were a fan back on the megadrive then go it but you will see why there are no more of them.

    I enjoyed Toejam and Earl III, but it is one of those games that is a mixed bag when it comes to who you ask about the game.

    The OG Xbox had the definitive versions of Fatal Frame 1 and 2, I also very highly recommend Ninja Gaiden Black if you need an action fix, I've put probably hundreds of hours into that game. It's pretty much my favorite Xbox game haha.

    In addition to what everyone in this thread has said, Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 is a great fighter with a ton of variety.

    Hi !. Boy.you´re a lucky guy !.B-) Your uncle gave you very a special box. The original XBOX !.Somehow these machines seems to have sadly been forgotten,or/and abandoned by the true gamers. Can´t help to wonder,from a retrospective point of view,was´nt one decade,the 00´s,long enough for remembering and embracing more than just one "Super console" from Microsoft ?.Well,from the day that the 360 "came to town"(by then,as a half finished product only though..),not much of devotion for "old mother X" was left in the air anymore.. (Maybe the subjects Atari Jaguar and Sega Dreamcast respectively,from that same generation,filled up the max level for the future nostalgia needs,more than well ?!!..) . Either way,"The black box" was,and is,AN AWESOME CONSOLE !!. With its Pentium III cpu,iconic and timeless interface,and up to 720P resolution (but yet,stepping down to 420i works great too !. You can plug it in on a pretty old(("fat")) CRT screen with just plain RCA/composite cables,RGB boosted or not. -OR,fix a better cable,and hook it up on some of the latest OLED´S out there !. It´s a very adaptable piece of hardware) ,IT ROCKS !. The hand controller was/is the first of its arch typical kind,and the "next giant leap forward",after the previous of such origin,that from the Playstation One(and further in THAT family). Some of "The black box" controller´s third part editions,were in some cases,close to as good as the original though.And you could choose between the affordable wired one´s,or the pricey wireless units as well. Sure,it´s the actual design concept in general that was/are groundbreaking,and was of course,followed up directly on the 360 as well(+ a million chinese knockoffs or so,ever since ..) .-But that rubber reinforced,grip ergonomical,solid sense,provided by the original unit,is and remains "The shining star" though !. Since "The black box"´goin´ down to history as "The unwanted child",i guess your uncle wasn´t that EMTREMELY generous after all.. (-I can only tell for its current status for it in my country,but here in Sweden you don´t need to pay more than about 70 US $/485 SKR for a FINE specimen ((less than the price for a carton box of Marlboro)). A worse one would probably ends up as separate spare parts or/and,in geeks experimental workshops though) . :p1ng: /// :cry:




    :arrow: ABOUT YOUR REQUEST FOR FIGHTING GAMES:

    Well my favorite game on this baby is "Midtown madness 3"(a "XBOX only" title,by the way),so really,violence entertainment isn´t my bag of tea at all,í´m afraid (It´s rather "the other way around" actually,where i try to flee from this reality of hatred,wars,suffering,lies,greed and death,into "other worlds" such as that one in "Mario kart",etc.)
    -But with all these avaiable emulators,wouldn´t SNK/Neo Geo games be a perfect choice for you ?!. (as far as i know,kickings,hittings,"aah !"s,and "Oh,no !"s,is the only thing that ALL those games are about,right ?..) Some good emulator for Capcom´s Arcade games is another thought. But a PS 1 Emulator would open up that console´s EXTREMELY big game library,where martial arts is ONE obvious genre !. -And,OF COURSE,there are fighting games for native "Black box" too,but i´m just not the right guy to tell you about it (i´ve seen a cover for a "Rocky" game on XBOX though..) .

    :!::!::!: Finally,A WARNING about "The black box". :mellow:
    There is a button type of battery inside it,and sooner or later,it WILL,guaranteed !,starts to leak !. That will not just "perhaps make a minor damage" on the console. -It may KILL IT !. The longer the leaking has been going on,the lesser chance to save the console. There is a video on Youtube about this,and the guy who shows a "typical case",explains that the battery IS NOT just a "snap on,snap off version".Instead,it is attached to the board with solderings and stuff.-To get rid of it,you have to cut at the right points,and then easy put it off. After that,you need to do YOUR OWN SOLDERING,to compensate on the boards circuits,where the removed component was fitted in,on the scheme. After that,you need to clean up in the best possible manner,where the potential leakage from the damaging fluids has occured(=treat the affected components in the best possible ways). And,also,handle the possible impact it might have had on the board´s own surface(circuits,connection points etc.). The guy explain everything as good as he can,but in a worst case scenario..it´s just over.. :(

    I soft-modded my xbox with an UnleashX dashboard, XBMC app (Which oddly won't play DVDs?), GBA, SNES, NES, and N64 emulators, and Burnout 3 and Dead or Alive 3 both installed to the 8GB harddrive.

    Tomato tomato, but just to clarify it's not actually a battery but an electrolytic capacitor.

    And there's one specific one that enables the clock to function when the console is disconnected from power. This is the one that ought to be removed, because yes, it can and most likely will leak eventually and could lead to trace corrosion.

    Stubbs the Zombie was a real fun single/multi-player game.

    Here is the first of 5 lists of Xbox exclusive games.
