More and more Xbox One games are entering the market everyday that it can be tricky to figure out which are good and worth your time, and which are best left along. Luckily, we’re here to suggest our favorite Xbox One titles – a list that’s mostly borne of many hundreds upon hundreds of hours of gaming.
Microsoft’s Xbox One console is nearing its sixth birthday – but that doesn’t mean it isn’t still going strong. In fact, many of the TechRadar team believe it’s only just reached its peak in the last year.
One of the main reasons for that bold claim is that the Xbox One has an excellent library of games and services to offer, as well as plenty more exciting new games in the pipeline. So although it’s now 6-years-old, there’s a lot of life left in the Xbox One family yet.
Over the years the Xbox One has come under fire for the quality of its first-party lineup, but we think that’s a little unfair. That’s because it has some unmissable, genre-defining exclusives to its name, including the Forza, Halo, Gears of War and Sea of Thieves series. Now the 4K capabilities of the Xbox One X are here, these games look better than ever too.
Aside from its AAA releases, Xbox One is also a great console for finding high-quality indie games. Its ID@Xbox program has titles including Ori and the Blind Forest and Cuphead, which are essential games.
It’s from this big collection of titles that we compiled our list of the best games on the Xbox One. There are a lot to get through, but these are the essential games we think every gamer should have in their library. Of course you could spend your time anywhere, but if you’re new, these are the game worlds we recommend visiting first.
Read on to see which games make the Xbox One shine, and keep checking back periodically: we update this list with new titles we feel have become part of the exclusive club of must-play games for the Xbox One console.
