So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

You knew it was coming...

Halo: CE
Halo 2
KOTOR
KOTOR 2
Beyond Good & Evil
Prince of Persia
Jade Empire

Am I missing anything? The library for the platform is pretty thin.

Sorta, I guess.

Also curious where the "classic" or "retro" line is drawn. And the Xbox had so few exclusives it's difficult to name classics specific to the Xbox.

Or else I would say "Morrowind" and end the topic in one.

Lighten up, eh? He's also made PS2 and GameCube topics. This one was bound to happen, and really this is "classic gaming," not "retro gaming."

...I still don't consider the Xbox a "classic," though.

Why, yes. Yes it is. Very Happy

I never had an Xbox (although for a day, I did think so); I'm just here to pipe in about Used's comment. Earlier in this classic forum: http://www.gamerevolution.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21731

Oh fine, oooh, Fable.

I've played NG but I've never personally owned one of the games. I hear they're insanely hard.

Confirm or Deny?

Hmm, I never saw any of 3.. Saw some in-game screens and footage from 2 that pretty much looked like 1 just hi-def with moar blood & demony darkness.. In other words, excellent. Cool

I've only beaten it on normal and hard. Beyond that, yeah it got pretty freaking ridiculous. Shocked

I see a lack of Crimson Skies in here. As well as Project Gotham Racing, Shemume 2 and Panzer Dragoon Orta and Jet Grind Radio. Sad too see that the dreamcast didn't survive to release the.
