Microsoft’s third console in the Xbox family the Xbox One managed to successfully introduce the idea of voice command and facial recognition to video gaming.
Added to that the enhanced graphics and multiplayer action, it certainly proved to be an impressive addition to the Xbox family.
With the imminent release of the next generation Microsoft console the Xbox Series X, which due out later this year, with the help of the gaming website GamesRadar, we have listed the 30 best games so far that are available on the Xbox One.
So without further ado let us begin.
30. Final Fantasy 15
We begin with a Role Play Game title that is not immediately associated with a Microsoft console. Indeed, when you think of the Final Fantasy franchise you instantly tend to think of its fierce rival Sony’s PlayStation. It is hard to argue, however, that the latest addition to the Final Fantasy series is easily one of the best RPGs of the year and it deserves its spot in the top 30 Xbox One titles. It successfully enables the player to explore vast open-worlds and experience incredible visual effects.
Created in the style of 1930s art - think Betty Boop shorts - Cuphead is a shooter that certainly provides a challenge for the gamer and is a terrific test of their skills and reactions.
28. Halo: Master Chief Collection
Despite the initial problems with this particular title, the re-released Halo: Master Chief Collection does ultimately deserve to feature in this list after successfully being amended and debugged.
27. NieR: Become as Gods Edition
This next title took a while to be released on the Xbox One, however, it proved to be worth the wait. This game was released in a 4k edition and gives the player ample opportunities to beat up robots.
26. Rainbow Six Siege
This all action first person shooter title successfully incorporates tension and tactics. This is by far Xbox One’s smartest multiplayer shooter to date.
25. Rise of Tomb Raider
The Rise of Tomb Raider is the best entry in Lara Croft’s rebooted trilogy. This is another series that again immediately makes you think of Sony’s PlayStation.
24. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
FromSoftware’s action adventure title appears next on the list. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is certainly more challenging than its predecessor and includes unbelievable tough boss fights.
23. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus
Set in an alternative universe in the 60s when America is subjected to Nazi rule, this MachineGames’ sequel The New Colossus is certainly one of the most intelligent shooters of its generation to date.
22. Devil May Cry 5
Everyone’s favourite Capcom series is next on the list. To sum it up, Devil May Cry 5 'looks better than ever, plays better than ever – it’s Devil May Cry better than ever.'
21. Resident Evil 2 Remake
The decision to recreate this 1996 Zombie title certainly paid off big time. The new and improved graphics look phenomenal and made the game as scary as ever.
20. Monster Hunter
Coming in at number 20 is Capcom’s Monster Hunter. This title enables you to track monsters, kill them and then harvest the parts to make gear, which allows you to tackle greater challenges. The battles are certainly a test of a player’s skill and cooperation.
19. A Way Out
This co-op game certainly provides each player with a variety of objectives that require teamwork to complete. The tasks range from jail breaks to fixing cars and successfully is able to include somewhat lighter and humorous moments to keep both gamers entertained.
18. Fallout 4
Once again, Bethesda is successful at including several games. Despite the occasional glitches, there is a lot to keep players entertained for weeks.
17. Resident Evil: Biohazard
Set in a Louisiana mansion, this latest Resident Evil title sees you hunting for your missing wife. It once again successfully incorporates a number of horrifying moments for the gamer to experience.
16. Titanfall 2
This first person shooter allows you to run along walls and then double jump into a giant mechanical Titan. What is not to love about that?
15. Destiny 2
This much-anticipated sequel stuck with more of the same, which made the original so successful. In other words, more space travelling and gun collecting!
Up until Overwatch, the World of Warcraft studio had never made a shooter before. Months after its release, it remains one of the unsolved mysteries as to how they were able to create one of the best multiplayer FPS ever.
13. Forza Horizon 4
Forza Horizon is available for free if you are an Xbox Game Pass subscriber. This racer is successfully able to showcase the technical side of the Xbox One and also gives you the opportunity to race the Flying Scotsman.
12. What Remains of Edith Finch
This title is both clever and creative. The story successfully includes a number of different styles of gameplay as you backtrack through Edith’s family tree and the lives of various relations who have all died early and suffered unfortunate deaths.
11. Ori and the Will of the Wisps
This is a short action-platformer that has an incredible soundtrack for gamers to experience.
Certainly a mis-leading heading for a game. Set in a government building, Control certainly exhibits anything but as you experiment with Jesse’s telekinetic abilities and crush your enemies with office furniture.
This title currently has tens of millions of gamers playing it. Fortnite began as a co-op crafting and survival game with the addition of a Battle Royale that it is now predominantly known for.
8. Gears 5
Xbox’s number two franchise finally is able to deliver a decent plot! Gears 5 is certainly successful at delivering when it comes to guns and gore, but it also includes a new character in Kait Diaz, who is trying to tackle the ever-present Locust threat.
7. Grand Theft Auto 5
Rockstar’s blockbusting series makes an appearance in this list. Grand Theft Auto 5 is able to impressively include online heists to make its online element even more appealing.
This game certainly deserves to be high up the list. Minecraft is as simple or as complex as you want to make it.
5. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Set in Ancient Greece, this latest addition to the Assassin’s Creed series certainly has a more RPG element to it. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey enables you to explore the Greek Islands as you engage in a number of full size battles.
4. Apex Legends
Respawn Entertainment’s Battle Royale title Apex Legends certainly came from absolutely nowhere. This FPS is absolutely phenomenal and crucially provides players with a wide range of guns.
3. Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain
The switch to wide-open spaces featuring multiple missions proved to be a masterstroke by Konami. This ultimately led to Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain being an absolutely incredible stealth-action title that set the benchmark for all future spy related games.
2. Read Dead Redemption 2
Playing as Arthur Morgan, this game gives you plenty to keep busy with from robbing banks, hunting animals or just playing cards. While this title may be slow to start off with, it certainly improves dramatically as you progress through the Wild West.
1.The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
The honour of being considered the best Xbox One game of all time goes to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This title is believed to be the most absorbing RPG’s ever created as you take control of monster hunter Geralt of Rivia, who has many contracts to honour and mysteries to solve. This is a game that will certainly be considered as an all-time classic.
So there you have it; the greatest Xbox One games of all time, as per the people over at GamesRadar.
