That Xbox thing taking up space under my bed Tim

File Under: Games -> Xbox

Somebody recommend me a really fucking good Xbox game. My system has been packed up and under my bed for the last several months, and I'm feeling kinda guilty about it. See, my mom gave it to me as a Christmas gift and spent a lot of money on it... When I told her that I packed it up, she just shook her head said maybe I should get a new game for it. The only one I have is Project Gotham Racing, and I want to give the system another chance. JUST DON'T TELL ME TO GET HALO! (And don't tell me to get Halo because you think it'd be witty since I told you not to. That would make you an idiot.) I've played the game, it's not that great.

[RANT]I don't understand why everyone has their lips firmly planted on its asshole, but whatever. You want a first person shooter with a good plot? Go play Deus Ex instead. If Bungie hadn't hacked their original intent for Halo to pieces to make sure it'd be out for the Xbox release, it might have turned out to be a totally awesome game. As it is, I found it to be an utterly average shooter.[/RANT]

Anyway, I've had my eye on Morrowind and Rallisport Challenge. The problem is, I don't trust reviews anymore (well, other than my own, of course) and Xbox fanboys are the last people to ask for a valid opinion. I don't want to buy a game, play it for a few hours, and forget about it. That happens to me all the time now - especially with games that are higly reviewed. (I'M LOOKING AT YOU, METAL GEAR SOLID 2! Oh yeah, and YOU TOO, ROGUE LEADER!) Oh, and I hated the original Jet Set Radio on the Dreamcast, so unless they got rid of those fucking cops that run around saying "HUT HUT HUT!" I'm not interested in Jet Set Radio Future.

What I WOULD like is a fun, easy to get into racing game, or a quality non-tedious adventure game. Oddworld, maybe? I dunno, give me suggestions. I don't know what games are out, and I'm too lazy to find out and go research each one on my own.
