This was the machine that got me back into gaming. I'd basically stopped out of boredom and I bought my mate's Xbox 2nd hand. He gave me Outrun, Battlefront and a few other games with it - and I was hooked. It's probably my favourite console.

I only really return to my XBox to play Outrun 2, what a fantastic game! And a bit of the burnout series.

Same really. Sent mine off to be modded now though.

Burnout! How could I forget that! Got Burnout 2 from a closing Woolworths for 99p and was hooked.

The output isn't the greatest on Xbox, but component should definitely give you the best image.
Also, my cheap copy of Dreamfall works on this new machine, so that's made me happy.
Dreamfall is brilliant. Making of, boss? :wink:
I'd rather do Cthulhu first.

The Xbox I have has coin-ops 7 and it's pretty impressive (although the output isn't the best via CRT).
Still, I was playing Shinobi last night and it was rather awesome.
I also went back to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2X, which made up for the awfulness of playing part 5 :P

I still think Panzer Dragoon Orta is a stone cold classic too. Such a shame we never got a proper sequel

Not sure if I sold this or I still have it somewhere.
Was chuffed to find it in a joblot for next to nothing but so disappointed when I tried it.
People really like this? :?

Don't lose the controllers - I had to replace mine and it cost more than the crystal console which I picked up quite reasonably

I think it's incredible. It's a super on-rail shooter with imaginative looking levels, an interesting combat mechanic in the form of the three switchable dragon forms, the standard risk Vs reward system of the charge shots and some truly satisfying boss encounters. It's perhaps a little tough, but it still has some of the most stunning visuals to grace the machine.

In fact I'm going to play it tonight :P

I think it's a real sega golden arcade era style game - like a more playable version Space Harrier

Yeah. It has a 'look' that isn't really comparable to other games (well unless you count other PD games of course). Some of the boss battles are indeed tough and need a few goes to beat but the game overall is a nice experience. Costs bugger all to purchase today as well unless it's suddenly shot up in price unknown to me.
