There are so many Xbox One games out right now that it can be difficult to separate the good from the bad. But fear not, if you’re after the best of the best Xbox One games, we’re here to list them for you – a list borne of many hundreds upon hundreds of hours of gaming.
Although Microsoft’s Xbox One console might be approaching its sixth birthday, it’s still going strong – with many of the TechRadar team believing it’s only just reached its peak in the last year.
That’s because it has a solid library of games and services to offer, as well as plenty more exciting new games in the pipeline. So although it’s 6-years-old, there’s a lot of life left in the Xbox One family yet.
In recent years, the Xbox One has faced criticism 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 may be lots of them, 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 we think 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.
