Justify me an Xbox (16)

Original, not 360. Multi-platform games don't count, unless they're much better than the other versions.
So far I'm thinking:

  • Halo
  • Halo 2
  • Ninja Gaiden
  • Fable maybe
  • Jet Set Radio Future maybe
  • ...?

Mod it and you get access to
-Super Mario Wars
-Various emulators (eg NES, SNES, N64, MAME)

That was a substantial selling point for me...

Battlefield 2 is the best only the best online military FPS in the world.

Almost every multi-console port is, at the very least, graphically superior on the Xbox.

Being able to play SoulCalibur2 with the best controller available for fighting games.

>>11 excellent game, Tekken 5...

Looking forward to Tekken 6 on the PS3.

And NO for justfying an Xbox...it can't be justified!

Play an Xbox. If you like it, buy it. If not, don't. Why do you need an Xbox justified to you? If someone gives you a good enough reason, you'll buy it? Play it, find out the reasons to buy or not buy, and then make your own decision.

But, then again, Fable's on it. I could give you links to all the things Molyneux promised on that game, which would make you salivate and immediately buy an Xbox.

Then, of course, you'd find out Molyneux should shut up before he says things he can't bring into the game.

horrified gasp
You ask for the impossible!

But seriously, the xbox is worth it, if just for its 4 controller ports and (if you're lucky) 16 man lan games of Halo 1 or 2.

I even considered re-buying an xbox just for the good old days.

new xboxes are cheap these days. wait a few more months and games will be cheaper

Modchip and XBMC is really the end of the story. The only problem with the xbox is that it's not powerful enough to decode some of the newer video formats.
