Best Xbox One Games

EvilAngel
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

This is one of my favorite assassins creed game

this sucks

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

2 Titanfall

Why in HELL is this not #1? - omgfranz

A repetitive game, that never dissapointed me! It was great!

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!

3 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

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.

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

Just sucks I mean the game is trying to hard I think the only reason why people like this game is because of knocking down buildings I barely think they even play multiplayer I'm not a Call of Duty fanboy.

4 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

Call of Duty games have been awful since COD4 and this one is bad to. Why don't you lot realise that Call of Duty games are just generic shooters with little imagination on the story, bland campaigns and a repetitively boring multiplayer. Go play a real game like Halo, Gears of war or FIFA

5 Destiny

It is so fun. The only thing is that sometimes the game will crash.

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

Got it cheap and played it every weekend since. Great game. Its not pay to win (thankfully) and its not unbalanced most of the time. I love the open world design and the story line. Plus, online co op is a great option. The only downside is the DLC cost (but I'm getting them for free :P)

6 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

Fifa18

7 Watch Dogs

One of the best looking game in the history of games

Graphic is so cool

Best graphics beats Grand Theft Auto 5

These guys made Assassins Creed. That means an amazing story, amazing gameplay, and amazing graphics. It's rare to find all in one game!

8 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?

I am lost for words on just how amazing this game is! Forza Motorsport 5 Limited Edition is the best game on the planet far and beyond that too without doubt!

9 Grand Theft Auto V

Best Grand Theft Auto ever made

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 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

Dead Rising 3 was an amazing game - even though it falls a little short compared to the enjoyment while playing Dead Rising 2. But the fact that the open-world experience is amazing, makes this one of the best Xbox One games, definitely deserves to be higher on the list. (8/21/14)

The Contenders

11 Halo 5: Guardians

epic

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. ) -

12 Minecraft

Minecraft for life no matter what happens to it I will still play it

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

13 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

Best game invited. Hands down

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!

Best game ever! Just like Skyrim got nothing bad about it!

15 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Game of the year!

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

16 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

17 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

Yea it should be in top 10

This game is so extraordinary

Coolest superhero game ever

Where is Mortal combat?

20 Forza Horizon 3

Should higher than fifa 14

It's the best game ever

lit

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

21 Madden NFL 25

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

22 Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Online multiplayer is messed up and needs fixed but overall it is a great game to have if your a fan or want a new game/series to get into - mneilan

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.

My cozen loves halo and master Chief.

23 FIFA 15

Superb game! New features, graphics, formations, transfers, teams, EVERYTHING! This should be above Grand Theft Auto V

Really fun I love the game so fun you need to play this game so bad it is to cool

I hope it's going to be better than FIFA 14

Should be number 1

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.

5/10

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 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

This will be an amazing game!

I think this game is awesome

This. Will be. Badass

26 Assassin's Creed Origins

Best game in the world should be in the top ten

27 Overwatch

I'm already tracer.

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

This is lower than just dance

OH COME ON OVERWATCH IS AMAZING

28 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).

A Great Game, my favourite character has to be Quiet. - danielwotsits

A good game, not too exciting though. Quite plain.

4/10

Boring Game

29 Assassin's Creed Odyssey
30 Just Dance 2014

Hey this game is alright alright alright

It isn't like those lazy games where you sit all day long.

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 %

You wont be sitting on your ass with this game

31 Forza Horizon 4

Should be one of the top 10!

32 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 list needs to be seriously updated. How is this beat out by the current top 10? Lack of maintenance by the writer's part.

33 Tom Clancy's The Division

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

This will revolutionize how games are made, guaranteed.

34 NBA 2K15

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

35 Call of Duty: Black Ops III

WAY better than Call of Duty: Ghosts - SoloPotato

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.

5 Comments
36 Battlefield 1
37 Star Wars: Battlefront

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

This will be an amazing game

38 Outlast

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

7/10.

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

39 Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare

Xbox 360 not Xbox One - Carly19781

First of all the game has 3d graphics, second of all this game is like a nonviolent version of Call of Duty, it's also more easy, this is all I got

' like a nonviolent version of Call of Duty ' I totally 100% agree on this.

I have it and its kinda stupid, to get stuff, you need to get sticker packs, and they copy Ghosts but replace words like Deathmatch or Kill with vanquish, that's wrong... just wrong.

This game looks amazing!

40 Madden NFL 15

OH MY GOD BEST GAME IN THE WORLD.

SHOULD BE 1

41 Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

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

42 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.

Much better than the rest of the garbage out right now.

47 Dragon Age: Inquisition

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

48 Need for Speed: Rivals

Amazing graphics and gameplay

Need for speed is the best racing game with many super cars

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

49 Sunset Overdrive

I look forward to this game. It seems to be all recent games take them self too seriously. This game changes everything up. It is so much fun

How is this not number 1? At least top 10

Can't wait to play this game

It looks so cool
