The original Xbox may not have had the longest life when you compare it to other consoles, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t have its fair share of amazing games. Microsoft knew that it had to impress quickly and that it would take more than just pretty graphics (which were truly amazing for their time) to do so. What players ended up with was a solid lineup of exclusive and multiplatform games that showed off the Xbox’s capabilities and paved the way for a bright future.
With Sony offering some of their biggest PS2 classics on the PS4 (leading us to hope for many more), we’ve gotten to thinking about whether or not the Xbox should do the same thing. It turns out that there is a strong library that Microsoft can dip into in order to make it happen, and many would be amazing to revisit with some DVR and achievement support.
