You may be heading over to a videogame store the next hour to grab some new games for your Xbox One, or maybe your dad asked what games you’d like to have for the new console you got for Christmas. Either way, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find an amazing selection of great games when you see this list of 5 of the best games for Xbox One:
1. Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Collection
The Xbox One version is arguably the best version of Diablo III when it came out. It has the same over-the-top graphics and precise controls as its PC brethren; the controller is a great fit for this hack and slash action game. Play with your friends for a fun, offline co-op experience that will keep you playing until the wee hours of the morning. There’s six classes to play with through four lengthy acts, a bonus expansion act and an equally entertaining adventure mode to complete. If you love watching heroes destroy monsters and collecting loot, you’ll love Diablo III.
2. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Fancy a game that takes over your life? Witcher 3 is the answer. Geralt has a ton of adventuring to do in Witcher 3, as it offers a world that would take weeks, even months to fully explore. These landscapes are packed with so much things to do and sights to see, with interesting NPCs to talk to and fantastic quests to undertake. Want a memorable story? The Witcher 3 single player campaign plays out like an epic movie, and the side quests don’t feel like tedious tasks designed to lengthen the game. Open world fans can say goodbye to their social life- they will be living in Witcher world, full of hyper-polished graphics.
3. Metal Gear Solid V
Here’s the lowdown of Metal Gear if you haven’t played the franchise yet- you’re a supersoldier stealthily infiltrating enemy lines. You are like a modern day ninja, wreaking havoc and thinning enemy numbers with one goal in mind. Snake blows up tanks, puts soldiers to sleep, and for fun, sends up bears for his own private zoo via balloon technology. Metal Gear Solid V is the most accessible game out of the Metal Gear series, and those who have not played the previous games because they were told that it has a convoluted story and long cutscenes can do so now and start enjoying it. Buy Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain for the best experience in the stealth genre.
4. Grand Theft Auto V
GTA V is like the biggest virtual playground you never had. In it, you can roam a massive world at your own leisure. Fancy grabbing a car and having a joyride with it? No problem. There are cars, planes, boats, and even tanks to ride on in. Xbox One is a perfect fit because the hardware renders all the graphics on high settings. GTA is the best game if you’re tired after a day’s work or if you just want to let off some steam.
5. Forza Horizon 2
Car porn lovers will get a definite kick out of playing Forza Horizon 2. This Xbox One game lets you choose between exotic supercars and equally exotic locations, tearing the track up with a frenetic soundtrack, superb handling controls and jaw-dropping visuals. The Forza series combines pristine car looks and open world themes ala Need for Speed, with fun gameplay grabbed from Burnout series to present a unique racing experience like no other. Grab a compatible steering wheel for some endless racing fun!
