15. Forza Motorsport
For the longest time Sony and Polyphony Digital dominated the racing sim genre with Gran Turismo, but then came a worthy competitor: Forza Motorsport. The talented team at Turn 10 Studios proved that it has what it takes to craft a hardcore racing game that gives GT a run for its money. With gorgeous visuals, a slew of awesome cars, and tight controls, Forza Motorsport was the start of a long and prosperous future for Turn 10's racing series on the Xbox platform.
14. Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow
While Sam Fisher's debut on consoles was impressive, Pandora Tomorrow simply blew the original Splinter Cell out of the water. With far more impressive visuals, the perfect blend of stealth and action, and an engaging story, the sequel to Ubisoft's super sneaky Tom Clancy game was a must for fans of the genre. Between the three console versions, the Xbox had the upper hand, so Pandora Tomorrow and the Splinter Cell series in general became synonymous with Microsoft's platform.
Peter Molyneux promised big things to Xbox gamers with his first console-based RPG, and while it may not have lived up to all of his lofty goals, it was still a killer experience. Role-playing games were a dime a dozen on the original Xbox, so getting an exclusive title from Lionhead in the form of Fable was a much welcomed addition. The world Molyneux and his team created was filled with charm and character. And let's not forget about that morality system. It totally had me eager to go back a second time for an evil play-through.
12. Jet Set Radio Future
While the word "Xbox" often brings to mind shooters, there was still plenty of variety on The Big M's first gaming console. One such title was Sega's Jet Set Radio Future, a Smilebit-developed sequel to the original Jet Set Radio. In the game you play as a member of a skating gang that goes around spreading graffiti in a futuristic Tokyo. It's got a unique soundtrack and cel-shaded art style that really help it stand out as one of the most offbeat games to ever come to the Xbox. Those with an artistic edge simply have to play this game.
11. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords
BioWare's legendary roleplaying game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic will undoubtedly pop up later on in this list, but that doesn't mean we can't include the Obsidian-developed sequel, The Sith Lords. The game picks up a few years after the events of the original and tells yet another gripping tale set in the Star Wars universe. Seriously, what is there not to love? If you are a fan of Star Wars and role-playing games, KOTOR II is an absolute match made in heaven.
