Even though the Xbox One is approaching its fifth birthday (which makes it positively geriatric in console years) we think it’s just reaching its peak. With a strong library of games and services to offer and lots more exciting new games in the pipeline, we think the Xbox One family of consoles has a lot of life in it yet.
Although the Xbox One receives criticism for its first-party lineup, it does have some unmissable genre-defining exclusives which include the Forza, Halo, Gears of War and Sea of Thieves series. And with the 4K capabilities of the Xbox One X, these games are looking better than ever.
Aside from its AAA releases, Xbox One is also a great place to find high-quality indie games thanks to its ID@Xbox program which has made titles like Ori and the Blind Forest and Cuphead absolutely essential plays for this generation.
It’s from this massive collection of titles that we compiled our list of the best games on the Xbox One – 25 essential games we think every gamer should have in their library. 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, as we update this list all the time with new titles we feel have become part of the exclusive society of must-play games.
