    Other than HALO the Xbox was a weird system in that it really hit its stride IMO in the last couple of years -- towards the "end of its lifespan." One could argue that they should have kept at the original Xbox for another 12-18 months because to me it really hit its stride late in its cycle. Obviously they have their reasons for the 360 launch right now, but it seems like it may be some time before they get a "killer app", while the original Xbox still had some life in it.

    You're right. Oddworld was fun. I liked it. But 1-2 non-ps2 or non-pc games is not enough & neither is pretty T&A. Hence why my Xbox has cobwebs.

    If graphics matter I wouldn't be a classic gamer.

    Yeah Resident Evil 4 looks little muddier on PS2 - shrug - I don't care. The game is the thing wherein you find the bling-bling, not graphics.




    Question - why get defensive when someone says they don't like Xbox? Just one person's opinion. Why fight about it?

    I still like Halo 1 more than Halo 2, havn't touched Halo 2 pretty much since it came out, and that's only because of the gameplay issues, not the mention the bad single-player and the bug-ridden multiplayer.

    ... and yes, I know I'm in the vast minority on this
