The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

GameRevolution's Top 25 Xbox Games Of All Time (Full List)

Posted on Friday, July 12 @ 15:04:00 PST by Alex_Osborn


5. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind


Before there was Skyrim, before even Oblivion, there was Morrowind, the third chapter in The Elder Scrolls franchise. For a while, Bethesda's ambitious open-world role-playing series was limited to the PC crowd, but that all changed with Morrowind, which also was made available for the original Xbox. Aside from games like Grand Theft Auto, console gamers had never experienced something on such a massive scale. The ability to go anywhere and do anything within a fully fleshed out fantasy world was unprecedented on consoles at the time, and for this reason earns Morrowind a top spot on this list.



4. Ninja Gaiden Black


There are few games with combat as tight as Ninja Gaiden. Team Ninja and Tecmo's super polished action game is one of the most difficult, yet totally fair games you'll ever play. A slightly improved version, dubbed Black, was released a year after the original, and is considered by many the best action game ever made. With some improvements to the engine and a whole bunch of added extras, Ninja Gaiden Black offers a whole lot of bang for your buck. Any self-respecting action gamer simply has to have this game in their collection.



3. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic


You've been waiting for it… and here it is! BioWare's epic sci-fi RPG set in the Star Wars universe is believed by many to be one of the best games the studio has ever created—and that team made a lot of gems mind you. With an engaging battle system, branching dialog options, and a morality system that undoubtedly paved the way for Mass Effect, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was a genre-defining game to say the least. Did I mention it boasts one of the greatest stories in all of gaming? Yeah, it's got that too.



2. Halo: Combat Evolved


The original Halo is the sole reason why the Xbox platform wasn't dead on arrival. Bungie's console first-person shooter single-handedly made Microsoft's console worth owning, and the franchise has gone on to be the most valuable exclusive the company owns. Combat Evolved proved that first-person shooters can be done on consoles in proper fashion, thanks to the expert use of a dual-analog control scheme. For the longest time, the PC was the de facto place to play shooters, but that all changed when the Master Chief stepped onto the scene.



1. Halo 2


Bungie took its FPS formula one step further with the sequel to Combat Evolved, asHalo 2 changed the online gaming landscape in a major way. Suddenly gamers everywhere were getting broadband internet connections just so they could shoot their buddies online. The game's seamless matchmaking system was one of the greatest innovations to come along that generation, and proves to still be the best way to connect and play with friends. Halo 2 was more than a game, it became a second job to many, a lifestyle. The fate of Microsoft's place in the gaming industry was a point of contention for quite some time, but the release of Halo 2 cemented the fact that The Big M would be around in the gaming sphere for quite some time.
