Xbox has more than Halo. SO STOP SAYING THEY DON"T

Greetings one and all. This is my thread on why it's stupid to argue that the Xbox and/or Xbox 360 have ONLY the Halo series, because it's just not true. Hopefully, this thread will convince people that Microsoft's Xbox is more than just a DVD player/Halo player.

Great titles for Xbox include:
1)Halo series
2)Elder Scrolls Series
3)Fabel series
4)Dead Rising
5)Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
6)Ninja Gaiden series
7)Madden NFL 07 with kick ass graphics(And it's much more popular on the 360 because it's advertised on the 360)
8) Call of Duty

So, basically I want the users of ZU to know there's more to Xbox than 1 game series, so please, STOP CLAIMING THEY DO.

Re: Xbox has more than Halo. SO STOP SAYING THEY DON"T

I love the obvious straw man you're pulling here...

I guess I should make a thread arguing that Nintendo has more than Mario for anybody that hates it. Really though, people do know that there is more games for the Xbox than Halo, it's just that Halo is Microsoft’s main selling point, the same way that Mario is for Nintendo and Final Fantasy is for Sony. That means that some people will think that many people will buy an Xbox for just the sole puropse for just playing Halo, though these type of people also are into many other series as well so your point is as good as dead.

All of those except for Dead Rising are available for PC (though I'm not sure about Ninja Gaiden). And really, I've played basically the exact same concept as Dead Rising in tabletop RPG form. So the game just looks quite unoriginal in my eyes. Halo 2 sucked... I think that's it. So yeah, while XBox does have quite a few games, and some of them quite good, few are exclusive to the console.

Re: Xbox has more than Halo. SO STOP SAYING THEY DON"T

I made the thread because I keep reading posts that say either "Xbox only has racing and sports games" or "They only have Halo", and I wanted to remove any thought that Xbox only had these games.

Re: Xbox has more than Halo. SO STOP SAYING THEY DON"T

You do have to admit that each console has a main theme they are rooting for. There's no such thing as a console with miscellaneous themes. Xbox was going for sports genre with a few FPS here and there.

Yeah, that was a good one. If I had been eating anything when I read that I'd be dead by now.

Re: Xbox has more than Halo. SO STOP SAYING THEY DON"T

I own an XBox... And it's Fable, not Fabel... And you forgot Jade Empire! But this is coming out to the PC with more things to do too... You have to admit that XBox does have a good library of games, but most of them are sadly ports or are porte to other consoles/PC. I myself was not impressed at all with my XBox till last Christmas... At all.

Re: Xbox has more than Halo. SO STOP SAYING THEY DON"T

1. If you're trying to names games that microsoft has going for them, it's a good idea to name games that only THEY have.

2. This thread, it's topic and responses, are both hilariously stupid.

****, you broke my brain there. There is no possible way you reaped the enjoyment of a game like Dead Rising from a DnD style game. Sorry, when playing a table top RPG you don't get to pick up up a chainsaw and watch yourself cut a legion of zombies in half. That is an enjoyment only available elsewhere.

KOTOR > you.

Okay, so they have 4 good franchises. How many of them are first-party, though? And how many of them are unique to Xbox? I don't think any of them are.

Heathen! Dead Rising is brilliant. Give it a go and ten bucks says you love it. There's something inherently compelling about being able to beat on 50,000 zombies with anything around you, while being fed a story about political satire and consumer satire. >_>

Honestly, Halo 2 is is not that good. Halo 1's Single player/co-op was so much better. Halo 2 was only well recieved because, somehow, it got the entire industry riding the hype-wagon all the way up until it's release, where everyone was already convinced it was awesome, so it got rated well.

Live with it. I'm not one to knock Microsoft(I love my Xbox 360), but people who put Halo 2 on some kind of pedastal that it doesn't deserve it really gets under my skin.

If Halo 2's not that good, why do people only play Halo 2 at gaming events(i.e. Anime cons) instead of Halo 1? Also, Halo 2 was hyped because it was the sequel to the Xbox's best game that anyone who owns an Xbox had Halo 1. Plus, can you name a better FPS?

Re: Xbox has more than Halo. SO STOP SAYING THEY DON"T

Ehh some of the game he listed did appear on the Xbox first.

But oh well I'm not going stick and post in this thread often, its going lead to irrelevant flamming I just know it.

That doesn't matter because even if the X-box got them first they appeared on the other consoles.

Edit: IMO halo is even more overrated then OOT,sex,back to the future 2&3 and the NES era combined.But that's just my opinion.
