Top Xbox One Games of All Time
Eight long years after the launch of the Xbox 360, gamers around the world were finally able to welcome the new generation of gaming in 2013 with the launch of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The Xbox One launched to a bit of criticism, and spent much of its early days playing catch up to the more powerful PlayStation 4. The console soon ditched Kinect from the box and changed its message (thankfully) to focus on games. With that, a strong first-party lineup in 2014 saw the likes of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Sunset Overdrive and Forza Horizon 2 look to claw back Sony’s early advantage. And with more first party titles like Quantum Break, Gears of War and Crackdown in the years to come, Microsoft still has quite a bit up its sleeve.
Xbox One gamers aren’t short of amazing titles to play on their shiny console, but knowing what stands out as the cream of the crop can be tricky. Need a little help whittling down your options? Follow our list of the top Xbox One games of all time to prop up your collection with the best of the best.
In theory it sounds terrible, but Guitar Hero: Live's approximation of old-school music TV programming, coupled with the excellent hardware, makes it a winner.
An FPS where your weapon should be the last thing you use, not the first, Rainbow Six Siege is a fantastic tactical shooter.
I can't think of many games like Oxenfree. It's simple if judged purely on gameplay mechanics but wonderfully accomplished in terms of storytelling, characters and dialogue.
The Flame in the Flood is beautiful, desolate, and it will kill you again and again.
A strong start to the campaign, marred by some annoying technical issues.
Quantum Break is a glorious use of current-gen power, with the visual fireworks on show making the combat feel positively joyous.
DiRT Rally, then, isn't a true successor to the DiRT series you might know and love, but it's a better rally experience if you're willing to put in the work.
DOOM is an excellent and exceptionally fun first first-person shooter. That's all you need to know.
Changing aesthetic from 'Dry Urban Dilapidation Chic' to 'Irradiated Sea Fog Realness' is refreshing.
Prison Architect is a full-on sim that will eat your time. If you fancy a dark look inside the running of a prison, look no further.
