Kotor. God I love that game. But holy man is it janky and got a lot of tech issues. The PC was patched so it's "better" , don't know how the xbox version holds up.

Hey people, JADE EMPIRE.
 
It should not take 1/2 page to get that game mentioned.

These. If you like horror done a little differently, check out Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth.  It's definitely janky, but fun and interesting. If you've read any H.P. Lovecraft it's a must play title.
 
It also has one of the more tense bits of gameplay I can remember from recent years which spawned the following bit of hilarity. It's not really a spoiler, but it does give away something that might be a surprise gameplay wise, something the player wouldn't necessarily be prepared for.

I concur with the KOTOR recommendations. That game is amazing.

KOTOR. Do not get KOTOR 2 though...

Panzer Dragoon Orta may be tough to find, I don't think it sold very well but it is worth a look.  Also, Kotor 2 has it  issues but if you enjoy the first one as a Star Wars game, it is totally worth playing.  Or maybe I am just too big a SW nerd.

Is it crazy that I want to buy an original XBox just so I can play NFL2K5? Basically that is the only reason I would buy it

Quantum Redshift, if you fancy a futuristic racer in the mold of Wipeout or F-Zero.

@Nightriff: Don't. If you've got a 360, it's entirely backward compatible and runs in 480p pretty darn well. Could probably be picked up for pennies on eBay or Amazon. I play it on a regular basis.

The emulation of Live games didn't go over well, it would run in slow-motion for some reason; the servers have been turned off now for three years anyway, so it's not an applicable complaint any longer.

Ninja Gaiden Black is my personal choice for best game ever made, so that.

JSRF isn't half bad either.

@HansKisaragi:

Good thing you revived this two year old thread, I'm sure the OP was waiting still eagerly anticipating some new suggestions.

@packs217: Can't replace playing with an S Controller and I'm pretty sure there where so bugs and stuff playing it on the 360, even playing in single player.

@Nightriff: I've played through about twenty seasons on the 360 and never had a single gameplay problem. Field textures can act weird in the snow, sometimes. Doesn't affect play.

You're not wrong about the S-controller.

@packs217: Fuck 360 controller compared to S Controller. B and W better than the bumpers

@Nightriff: Definitely took me some time to get used to those bumpers. Miss the S, no doubt.

Conker Live and Reloaded. A lot of people shit on this game because it censors stuff that shouldn't be censored, but still I much prefer playing this over the original because the controls are so much better. Plus the graphics are fucking amazing for a sixth generation console game.
 
Edit: Erm shit I just noticed how old this thread this. My opinion still stands, but dammit I need to wear my glasses more often.

If achievements existed back in the Xbox 1 days I'd have an S-Rank in Jet Set Radio Future.
