Best Original Xbox Games Of All Time

The original Xbox is almost 20 years old, and we've rounded up the 20 best games on the platform.


It's been nearly 20 years since Microsoft made its foray into console gaming with the Xbox. Many of the most popular Xbox franchises today--including Halo and Forza--made their debut on the rather large black box. Though a bunch of original Xbox games are hard to get a hold of nowadays, some of the best original Xbox games are available to download from the Microsoft Store or can be found on mobile devices, PC, and even modern consoles. We've rounded up the 20 best original Xbox games (in alphabetical order). Round of applause for the gamers who played these games with the "Duke" controller.

For newer Xbox experiences, check out our roundups of the best Xbox One games and best Xbox Series X games to play right now. And if you happen to have a Game Pass subscription (you should), we have a list of the best Xbox Game Pass games, too.
