20. Halo: Master Chief Collection
We start the list with the “Halo: Master Chief Collection.” No, it isn’t a joke. And yes, we recall all the complaints the game had, but that was before it was all fixed. You might want to try it out if you haven’t. The impressive craftsmanship is undeniable. In our opinion, this entry does justice to the legacy. The “Halo: Masterchief Collection” is well refurbished and makes Halo so lovely. You might want to check it so you’ll know what we mean.
19. Final Fantasy 15
The “Final Fantasy 15” has been called one of the best Role Player Games of the year. We certainly agree. We also think it is one of the best Xbox One games ever released. Vast open worlds of Western RPGs are effectively blended with Final Fantasy’s unique animes. The worlds are filled with ruthless monsters, powerful magics, and giant crystals. The characters are also lovable. They stay with you throughout the journey. This and many more reasons is why it is one of the best Final Fantasy games.
18. Rainbow Six: Siege
We don’t know what you could be expecting when playing this game, but we are confident you might wonder if you’re watching a slasher film when you start. Please make no mistake, it is a guns-blazing FPS, and the horror is the most incredible thing about it. The excitement gets wild when all hell breaks loose. You get thrown into the midst of deep warfare.
17. Rise Of The Tomb Raider
Rise Of The Tomb Raider has been called the best one in the series. They certainly took things up a notch from the first game, and the challenge tombs are more intriguing than ever. As expected, Lara Croft embarks on a crazy adventure, raiding tombs and engaging in the best shootouts. Best be warned, the story isn’t as intriguing as you would expect. But the action sucks you in.
16. NieR: Automata – Become as Gods Edition
We wonder if, like us you wanted expectantly for the “NieR: Automata – Become as Gods Edition”? It was worth the wait. The game is certainly not what you’re used it. Androids question the nature of existence and beat up robots as a result. We mostly love how the camera angles change when you’re not mastering the acrobatic gunplay. Also, you get help with the things you can’t easily do in the game. That includes dodging.
15. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus
“Wolfenstein: The New Order” was perfection. The game was brutal, unique, hilarious, and so much more. However, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus does an even better job than the first. Of course, that was expected. BJ Blazkowicz’s war is taken to a whole other level. Expect to be immersed in it. We love how you get to tear Nazis to shreds. That might just be one of the best things about it for us.
14. Resident Evil 2 Remake
You know how you get excited about a game and wonder if your excitement is justified? Well, you’ll never wonder about this one. The game certainly made a comeback, and we are impressed. The remake honors the original and also recreates the classic in the best ways. Yes, there’s a zombie outbreak in Raccoon City, and it’s scary, crazy, and fun.
13. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
If you loved FromSoftware’s Dark Souls, then you’re going to find this way more intriguing. The aggression in this game is over the top. And trust that it would be very well rewarded. The attacks are crazy. You can get beaten down by a monstrous ape or even be knocked out by its poisonous poo. Master Sekiro delivers a combat that aims to destroy all his enemies.
12. Monster Hunter World
You might want to ignore the ‘most accessible yet’ if you have never played this game. It might also seem a bit weird to you as a first-timer, but you wouldn’t know when you’ll become immersed in it. We assure you that the fun gets very interesting as you track monsters, kill them and harvest their parts. This helps you make gear for bigger challenges.
11. Fallout 4
While Fallout 4 is not such a shocker, it also has so much to offer. It almost feels like it ripped pages from the last two installments to deliver a much better and more compelling game. Some have called it a natural evolution, and we agree very much. There is way better gunplay, and the main character’s voice acting is impressive. Oh, you don’t have to check the crate to loot it.
10. A Way Out
This co-op game presents so much more to players than we have been used to. Yes, you get to give your partner a boost to climb over a wall or even open a door together, but you also do things that don’t make you feel like you’re each other’s shadow. There are jailbreaks, car fixing, and moments where you might get emotional.
One thing we know is Fortnite always brings its A-game. There’s a good reason why the game is so popular. Everyone wants to play it, and it’s already got millions who do. You can also say it sort of brings people together; because we all talk about it. It has constant changing meta stories, which helps it stay fresh.
08. Destiny 2
A good question would be how Destiny 2 would ever be better than the first one. You’re not alone; we all wondered the same thing. Well, up until we played it. The truth is that Destiny 2 is an upgrade from the first. There is more of the same thing but in much better ways. You could say it’s more Destiny. It includes space traveling, gun collecting, etc. You’ll love it all.
07. Gears 5
We indeed waited a long time for this impressive plot. Gears 5 brings everything you’d expect from a great game too. It may have taken five attempts, but Xbox certainly delivered a great plot. The story is intriguing, and the new lead characters do not disappoint. The best part is the Locust threat is always present. We love all of the gore and the efficient gun use. Did we mention the locusts keep you on the edge of your seat?
06. Grand Theft Auto 5
Grand Theft Auto 5 is the blockbuster everyone should play for the rest of their lives. It tops several lists for very good reason. We love that online heists were added to the game; it makes you want to play it more. That’s a great way to entice players. First-person pedestrian beating was also added. Be warned, if you play this, you might not find other games that interesting.
05. Apex Legends
You may have heard about how Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends shocked the world. It almost felt like it came out of nowhere and dominated every space. It features squads of three legend characters with the ability to let you specialize your role. Apex Legends is free to play, just like Fortnight. It has cosmetic microtransactions which allow others to drop in to see what you can do. You will definitely love it.
04. Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain
One of the first things you’ll notice when playing this game is how different it is from everything Konami has ever done. The jokes are next level, the conspiracy theories are just wild, and everything hits you with a refreshing take. We love how switching to wide-open spaces is so effortless and masterful. It basically turns you into your own spy film director. And yes, you get to pull off a masterful heist. Isn’t that fun?
03. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
We think it is safe to say that the break Assassin’s Creed took was well-needed. Why? Because they returned with an even better addition to the series. In our opinion, they thought about everything from the story to the world and made it all better. They really set the tone for the future. The RPG is set in ancient Greece, and you get to travel through islands waging wars. Oh, and the romance is pretty fun.
02. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Oh, this one is fun. If you haven’t played The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, you haven’t played one of the best RPGs ever. You get to be a hitman/detective the whole time. You even go on side quests that would thrill you like nothing has, ever. What we love most about it is the gross beast that you get to slice. This is the one to play.
01. Red Dead Redemption 2
We think we have to warn you. When you begin playing Red Dead Redemption 2, you’ll think you made a big mistake. It’s one of those games that aren’t that fun at the beginning, but then they shock you at how good they are when you’re way into it. Worlds of character are built in a changing time. You’re taken on a journey while facing the new world and fighting against the old one, which chases after you. You can do all sorts of things in this game. That includes robbing a bank, fishing, hunting animals, etc.
