    Yes, the vast majority of Xbox Live enabled titles for the original Xbox still work. However, most of the communities are dead, even for popular games like Project Gotham Racing 2. Besides Halo 2 and probably a couple of other popular fps's, your not likely to find anyone to play with.

    Yeah Halo 2 is about all that is left for the original Xbox on Live.

    Here's the top 10 Live-active Xbox games (as of 1/12/09) according to Marjor Nelson:

    1 Halo 2
    2 Star Wars: Battlfrnt 2
    3 Fable
    4 Counter-Strike
    5 Conker: Live Reloaded
    6 Doom 3
    7 Star Wars: Battlefront
    8 Street Fighter Anniv.
    9 Splinter Cell Chaos
    10 Call of Duty 3


    I tried searching for a Live game of Street Fighter 3rd Strike last night but I couldn't find anything. It was really late though and I only tried for a minute.

    I really should try out Battlefront before it dies down though. I've owned 1 & 2 for a while but haven't played any games online yet for some reason.

    Absolutely. As for that top ten list, I tried searching for people to play Doom 3 with and it was completely empty. I can always find people to play with in Halo 2 but I didn't know Star Wars: Battlefront 2 was still so heavily populated.

    I'm not that surprised that Battlefront 2 is still popular. Heck, it was probably the game that kept the PS2's online gaming service alive! (then again, BF2 for PS2 was powered by Gamespy, along with the PC version, while the Xbox version was isolated over at Live)

    I keep trying to find people to play Fable with me, but i can never seem to find anyone on. It might as well just be a single player game...

    Phantasy Star Online doesn't work online anymore, and it requires you to have Live to play it offline.

    I no longer have a Live account, quit years ago, too many brats.

    I do know that you cannot start an XBOX Live account unless you have a 360 though.

    So it's been bricked? That sucks. Glad I have the Dreamcast version.

    That top 10 list is just users connected to Xbox Live if anyone looks at it and is confused, it doesn't mean the users are actively engaging in online multiplayer.

    Finally got around to trying the Xbox version of Battlefield 2 the other night, that's a ghost town. I kind of thought people would still be playing that.

    Guess I should've tried it when I got it a couple of years ago.

    It's not totally bricked. You can play it offline, if you have a Live account. Which is rather silly.

    Does it have to be an active Live account? I still have the info on my HD but the account itself hasn't been used in a couple of years. I'll try playing the game when I get home tonight...

    These two games were pretty dead for open games even when they were new. I'd assume most of the games on the list are played between friends and you're not going to have much luck getting into any sort of open/public games.

    Triple. I've always thought it was only "live aware" as well. I remember talking to some of my customers when the game came out and they were telling me how much fun they had with it. But they never mentioned anything about online play.

    Ditto to this too. I had that game for years and it's still shrink wrapped. The only reason I tried playing Doom 3 online is because I beat it last month and had been playing it for weeks while trying to beat it. Same thing for Darkwatch and Farcry--theres never nobody online. However, atleast for these two games you can actually play online multiplayer.....by yourself. I'm not sure why but you can. Finally, Burnout Revenge for Xbox is no longer online-active(the 360 version is) but Burnout 3 still has a dedicated group of online players(I should know because I'm one of them). And I can also find games in Star Wars: Jedi Knight Jedi Academy every now and then.

    I used regular XBL for a few months up until about six months ago. Mainly I only played NBA 2K7. Battlefront II was just way too laggy, and Doom 3 and Halo 2 were unpopulated. There was something like seven people that played 2K7 so we always played against each other and it was really easy to pick up tactics and the like.

    Although in my opinion, Counter-Strike was always heavily populated. You could always get a game of CS in and people actually used headsets.

    Huh? You must be talking about a different Halo 2. I can go online in Halo 2 at midnight, 7 in the morning, 5 pm(and all the times in between) and still find dozens(if not hundreds) of people to play with.

    I guess I must be thinking of a different one. I would always hit Quick Match and would sit for a few minutes with no luck.
