Best Xbox One Games

Best games for the highly anticipated console by Microsoft, the Xbox One. Originally dubbed the Xbox 720, the Xbox One is the sequel to the hugely successful (and simply awesome) Xbox 360. As well as this, the Xbox One is also the main competitor of Sony's PlayStation 4, so needs to be pretty darn good. This list is devoted to finding the best games available for the Xbox One.

The Top Ten

1 Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

This game is unbelievable! It's graphics are stunning and it is the best in the series and has a beautiful control set paired with an excellent story line! Assassins creed is by far the greatest Xbox game and is cherished by many. It truly does deserve the title as the greatest Xbox one game. - Willimex

It's the best assassins creed game ever made so far and maybe ever

So happy to see this above Call of Duty. Call of Duty got old and I only played from world at war to MW3 before black ops II turned me off from the series. Sure the multilayer was fun but the campaign was terrible. So I played 5 Call of Duty games and got bored. I've played all 6 AC's and I want more! I love games that focus on the single player experience. Those are the best in my opinion.

I loved it on the Xbox 360 but when it came out for Xbox one I exploded of happines and went to game stop bougth it and playd for 4 days straigth.

2 Titanfall

Why in HELL is this not #1? - omgfranz

This will hopefully be the Call of Duty killer! - hockeyfan77

This will do for the Xbox One in 2014 what Halo did for the original Xbox back in 2001!

Better be beter than bo3

3 Call of Duty: Ghosts

Call of Duty ghost is a fantastic game with great dlc on the way I am buying the season pass on the first day

I play it and it was really good

This game is so awesome once you see it

The flagship game of XB1 when the console came out - EliHbk

4 Battlefield 4

Epic FPS, Campain is amazing, So many plot twists, Multiplayer is the BEST. I literally Blew up a wall, and killed someone at the same time. Amazing. - junaid343

Best FPS ever. Anyone who disagrees is younger than 8 and gets nude and cries in the corner. - omgfranz

It's the same thing as battlefield 3, and the graphics aren't that different from bf3. It's still good, but it feels like they just copy pasted a lot of stuff to play it safe.

Its battlefinger, no that's not a typo... I call it battlefinger cause your giving them the finger after you kill noobs

5 FIFA 14

FIFA is a 5 star game it has good viewing and as soon as it comes out shops are full of people wanting to buy it

I don't think anything else can be said about FIFA except its better then FIFA 13 the same amount as FIFA 13 was better FIFA 12. Still, it's a brilliant game.

Good features and make me more interested in football

Who would like FIFA 14 when the 17 is coming out soon

6 Destiny

One of the top most anticipated games on my list. It's from the creators of My most favorite series; Bungie and Activation.

Can't wait for this game but mostly can't wait for the next batman arkham game - BATMAN456789

This should definitely be towards the top of the list -- if not at the top. If you actually knew anything about games, then you would know that this is one of the top most anticipated games of the year.

I love this game so fracking much

7 Forza Motorsport 5

I'm a fan if this series. My favorite was 3

One of the best games on Xbox it is better than need for speed. It is a Microsoft franchise game

Which other Xbox one allows you to drive like this?

Amazing graphics and gameplay!

8 Dead Rising 3

Dead rising three is so much better than all of those stupid single shooters.

Dead rising 3 is epic its probably the best game this year besides Grand Theft Auto 5

Dead rising 3 is the best game by miles, better than Call of Duty and boyfriend and AC4

I love this game, it's really funny. I love the lego head

V 44 Comments
9 Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto 5 is the best Grand Theft Auto ever. I love it. Its what Grand Theft Auto is all about. Money, empire building, cars and freedom. I sold it with my 360 to get the one. I can't wait for it to release on the one.

It is the best game I played - spartans02

Oh! What a GAME! Just awesome! I hope it is in no1# - buba_rock

10 Watch Dogs

The Contenders

11 NBA 2K14

My Player makes this so good even though I am averaging 13 points for the timberwolves with like three rebounds and one assist and I only play eight or ten minutes? I wanted a trade to celtics, thunder, or nuggets, (i wanted a ring while I was on a team that I liked and I wanted the nuggets because they were like second in the conference so... ) I got traded to marvericks and now averaging 15 points per game with a career high of 29 with 4 rebs and 3 assists. I also average 3 to 4 rebs and 1-2 assists but my team is tenth in the conference so... I am going to stay this year but I might trade cause I never started a game which I think is a glitch

The Quality of this game is unreal, and unparalleled by any other game on this list. Best sports game ever made.

Nba2k14 is amazing the graphics are really good and the my career mode is amazing it legit makes you feel like your in the nba with the endorsements and cut scenes it is just a great game - Jpserednicky

you suke

12 Halo 5: Guardians

It's Halo. On Xbox One. Nothing can beat this.

They say that the top 2 games and game series have been Call of Duty and halo but every year halo wins by quite a lot. Halo has been voted by both game specialists and people as the best game winning multiple peoples choice award. All the halo games should be on top of the list. Halo in the past years has overpowered Call of Duty in campaign missions, online, graphics and last of all it has been rated #1 overall product.

Even though the teaser wasn't much for the masses of Halo fanatics, it already looks amazing! I can't believe that I got a PS3! I missed out on Halo at its prime... But not to worry! I got an Xbox One for Christmas! This and Tomb Raider will soon be my favourite games ever! (I'm Canadian, that's why I spell it like "favourite". Don't hate. ) -

The story was above average, I’ll give it that.

But the multiplayer is unparalleled. Easily one of the best in the series. And it can be a worthy competitor to Reach’s forge mode.

13 Minecraft

Minecraft is just awesome

Very good game. It's not common and that's what makes it good

Best sandbox game ever. Good no matter what. - Miniman1676

It is amazing

14 Ryse: Son of Rome

I just got my Xbox one, and I've gotten 4 games total for it. Halo 5 is okay, but a huge disappointment, Destiny: The Taken King is better than the original Destiny from what I've heard, but I haven't really started it yet, and Divinity: Original Sin is good, but nothing too noteworthy. Thank goodness that I have one game making the system worth the $500 purchase (Halo 5 Xbox), and that's Ryse.

I'm so addicted to this game! Its awesome! The scenes are so real! If you like anything to do with old timey fighting in an arena you will love this game!

This is a great game with the most realistic graphics love campaign and gladiator mode both so realistic!

Ryse is the only war game I ever played it is sick, crick, nick, wick, awesome

15 Assassin's Creed Unity

Can't Wait, its gonna be much better than Black Flag, and, Paris in that game will be the size of actual Paris.

Its awesome has coop and takes place in Paris. And you customize your assassin. Better than black flag by a lot

I have always love assassins creed games and this won is the best.

Great graphics and wished all the series was on Xbox one

16 Far Cry 4

Very fun game, very unique and different to a lot of other games out of here. Its set in the wilderness, other then the rest of the games like Grand Theft Auto V and Watch Dogs, etc.

I give it a 7 / 10

How is this game not in the top 10. Best Game

This game is so extraordinary

Yea it should be in top 10

18 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Think Skyrim world & atmosphere, Game of Thrones writing/characters, Arkham Asylum combat, all improved with next-gen technology.

This list is a JOKE. This could be the best game I've ever played.

What! Ihate this site and the people who vote in it

Beath-taking actions, mysterious strory, heart melting music, amazing peotry, seductive characters.

19 Lego Marvel Super Heroes

A splendid Marvel game

20 Injustice: Gods Among Us

I love the character Superman! He is so awesome. Also, GreenArrow is cool too, and Batman, and amazing skins. It is such an awesome game, so muck like Mortal Kombat

21 Madden NFL 25

Dylan thinks Madden nfl 25 is the best Xbox game in the world

Its going to be awesome to play halo 2 on Xbox one again I have such fond memories of this game

The game which will save the Xbox one thanks to the halo 2 campaign being remastered.

23 Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

There is a LOT to say about Metal Gear Solid V, especially Phantom Pain, 1st open-world Metal Gear Solid game, and it looks VERY awesome. I HIGHLY recommend this when this comes out instead of Call of Duty: Ghosts (just my opinion).

24 Fallout 4

Quite a fun game to mess around with, I don't like the story though. I love the idea of a nuclear war, but I don't like the story or anything, a bit bland.


How is this not #1? Made by the most creative studio teamed with graphics for the Xbox one, it's dope. Seriously the best thing to do while baked.

25 Overwatch

It is a great fighting game but you have to be very good to play it

This is lower than just dance


26 The Elder Scrolls Online

A lot of people hate on this game because it was not as good as they expected but I don't think that the game is even 1/2 bad, it has a great feel, a great multiplayer and its an amazing game in general and it is worth the money

27 Forza Horizon 2

Ever want to explore the outside of the race track? Now you can! This is the best off road racing game made in a lifetime and possibly the best racing game of all time. There I just said it. Better than Mario Kart 8 (which was also amazing)! - recaller

Not out yet though.
Good for the Xbox One, but absolutely rubbish for the Xbox 360. As far as I know, they have different game engines (Playground Games for Xbox One which led the original Forza Horizon for the Xbox 360 to awesomeness, and Sumo Digital for the Xbox 360, which I know is gonna lead the 360 version of the game to absolute disaster). - SelfDestruct

Seriously the best Forza yet. Hundreds of cars already at your available disposal without buying dlc after dlc. Online is great and the game looks great in general.

This game makes me want an Xbox One so bad.

28 Just Dance 2014

BEST GAME EVER it should be on the first place you wont be sitting all the time but dancing and creating your own it is just PERFECTION %

We all know Ubisoft has brought you great games like Assasians Creed, Far Cry, and Watch Dogs, but Just Dance is awful, it would be ok if I could use the controller, but Kinect is retorted.

29 Tom Clancy's The Division

An RPG aspect in a shooter based in a ravaged world. Don't see that a lot, do you?

30 NBA 2K15

Such a great game! I love the face scanner. You can be in the game

31 Killer Instinct

I got real angry and jealous when I heard killer instinct was coming out on Xbox one but when I saw the trailer it didn't look that bad but I still prefer the killer instinct for snes

Best quality game we had on consoles since a very long time.. This game should be top 5!

Great fighting game. Top list of fighting games of all time.

The XB1 VERSION SUCKS BECAUSE WHEN I DOWNLOADED IT, I only had ONE character to play as, making this a cash grab just to take your money for more characters, like EAs battlefront 2 but for guns

32 Star Wars: Battlefront

What the new battlefront lacks in content more than makes up for in graphics and gameplay.

33 Madden NFL 15



34 Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

Tomb Raider Definitive Edition is the best game I've ever played on Xbox One.

35 Outlast

Not to scary ( I don't get scared too easily ) but very good and interesting, especially playing with friends.


Outlast on Next Gen is my dreams coming true. - danielwotsits

This is my favorite horror game of all time, and since I only have 5 games for my One it is my favorite ^__^ - TristanMatheny

36 Watch Dogs 2
37 Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

Its best game of year

38 Assassin's Creed Origins
39 Dragon Age: Inquisition

It's so much fun, especially when you make a really funny character. - danielwotsits

40 Call of Duty: Black Ops III

Why is Call of Duty: Ghosts above this?! That game is good but this game is way better! - venomouskillingmachine

This is the best Call Of Duty ever made and it should be in the top 10 at least!

I like the most is multiplayer mode and zombies mode.

WAY better than Call of Duty: Ghosts - SoloPotato

41 Forza Horizon 3

If anything, the Xbox Play Anywhere feature made this game even better now that buying a digital download of this game on the Xbox One enables you to play it on the PC at no additional cost. - SelfDestruct

This game will be amazing even better than the last forza game

it is fun

42 Need for Speed: Rivals

The best racers and the best cops.
By the way, the Koenigsegg One:1 is a free DLC. - SelfDestruct

I like hockey - Jordan-Kenneth-Barteaux

Why is it so low? Best game in existance

Way too low... obviously writer has no affinity for hockey.

46 Disney Infinity 3.0
47 Dying Light

Best looking game hope it lives up to what it is showing us but looks great. - Romneymarshall

Dying Light is one of the best New Gen games to come out, EVER. - danielwotsits

This game is great, one of the best zombie games EVER. Good graphics, good story mode, and also, fun to just roam around in.
