Even though we all appreciate the social interaction and connectivity in our daily lives, thanks to the different mediums such as social media, chat services, and multiplayer online gaming, there are times when we just want to be isolated in our own space and enjoy a good single player story in video games.

If this is one of those times when you just want to kick back, relax, and immerse yourself into a fictional universe, where you assume the position of a character and experience their journey, then you have made the right decision to read this article.

In over 3 years of its existence, Xbox One has made a great library of games that focus on an immersive single player experience. Here we talk about the 15 best single player games currently available for the Xbox One:

1. Rise of the Tomb Raider

riseofthetombraider

After the success of the Tomb Raider franchise reboot, the developers, Crystal Dynamics, continued the story of Lara Croft who survived the brutal journey in the first game that only hardened her to the point where she is officially on her way to becoming the “Tomb Raider”; archaeologist-adventurer that she was always destined to be. In this sequel, Lara Croft decides to continue her late father’s research to find the lost city of Kitezh but later realizes that this journey would be much more dangerous than she anticipated, as another secret organization has also been in search for it.

Much like the first game in the rebooted series, Rise of the Tomb Raider offer lots of interesting set-pieces, enemy battles and one of the best puzzle platforming in recent games. The game offers players tons of weapons and gadgets, which can be upgraded to be more useful and deadlier. The gameplay also allows much deeper options for stealth attacks as compared to the prequel.

2. The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt

the-witcher-3

The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt is an open world RPG and is the final entry in The Witcher Saga created by CD Projekt Red and based on the famous fantasy novels by Andrzej Sapkowski. The game features a huge world that consists of Novigrad, Velen and Skellige Isles. The game looks beautiful, as each part of the map is hand-crafted by the developers.

The best part of The Witcher 3 is its story and how the players decide to tackle it. It’s a story of the main character named Geralt of Rivia, a Witcher (a monster hunter) by profession which is a dying breed in this universe. The story is about Geralt looking for his adopted child, a girl named Ciri, who is also wanted by not just an evil emperor of another state but also the riders of the night from another world, who haunt our planet in the hunt for this special girl.

Unlike most of the video games, our decisions change the course of the story throughout the game. If a player gets a bad ending, it’s because the player made some terrible choices. Due to the nature of its realistic story-telling in a fantasy setting with the added tension of making the right choices, this is one of the most detailed and immersive single player games of this or any other generation.

3. Grand Theft Auto V

gta-v

Grand Theft Auto V is an open-world sandbox game created by Rockstar Studios that features not one but three different main protagonists and tells a story of how their characters meet each other to form a crew, to pull the biggest heist of the century.

Grand Theft Auto is known for its amazingly detailed open world, and the high-level of freedom it offers to the players in its gameplay. GTA V takes place in the city of Los Santos (Los Angeles) and the surrounding countryside and offers the players hundreds of cool land, air and sea vehicles, as well as a range of different weapons and gadgets to play with.

The main story features 3 main characters as mentioned above, who can be selected at the tap of two buttons at any time, except for the story missions. The first main character is Michael, a retired robber who is currently under witness protection program by FIB (FBI), living a comfortable life, thanks to his previous robberies and a deal with FIB. The second main character is Trevor, who is a nutcase and is not in a good place financially or mentally. The last main character is Franklin, who is our usual GTA protagonist starting a career in the criminal world.

4. Hitman (2016)

hitman

It is safe to say that IO Interactive studios have learned from the mistakes they made with the direction of Hitman Absolution. Hitman (2016) is not just a step in the right direction, but it is actually in contention with Blood Money to be the best Hitman game.

The game features different levels in different locations all around the world, where Agent 47 has to carry out the assassinations contracted to him by his employers; the ICA. Even though the fans were a bit uncomfortable with the all-new episodic release of each level at first, the episodic model has actually turned out to be really good decision for this game, as it thrives on its replay-ability and gives the players time to master each level before they can get their hands on the next mission.

Apart from a single player story missions, IOI has also added modes such as Escalation Mode; which challenges player to assassinate a target in different and harder circumstances, Elusive Targets; which is a live mode where a target is available for a limited time as the player looks to eliminate him within the given guidelines and a returning mode called Contracts Mode, where the players can create and share different assassinations contracts.

5. Fallout 4

fallout-4

Fallout 4 is an open world role-playing game created by Bethesda Software that lets the player create their main character and give them the skills and attributes of their choosing. The game is set in an alternate universe, where the people are dealing with the fallout of a nuclear war. The main story focuses on the protagonist, an army veteran who survives nuclear war thanks to the cryogenic technology and wakes up hundreds of years later to avenge the death of his wife and to search his baby boy who had been kidnapped.

The main story can be a hit or miss, but the gameplay of Fallout 4 is where it shines the brightest. The game offers a deep level of customization, ranging from clothing, appearances, armors, weapons, power armors and even your very own settlements that you can create from the ground up, using the ton of resources you can loot and craft.

The looting and crafting systems of the game are highly addictive and keep the player busy. It is fun to invest hours in the hunt for the best armors or weapons with the highest stats.

Availability: Xbox Live ($59.99)

6. Dark Souls III

dark-souls-iii

Dark Souls III is the third entry into the Dark Souls franchise created by From Software. It is an action RPG that takes pride in its high difficulty and challenges the players to beat its boss battles. Like every RPG, the game lets the player create their main character, skills, and attributes. However, in Dark Souls III, you must think wisely before investing in each attribute with your hard earned points into.

The game lets the player choose their fighting style and choose the weapons of their choice. Upgrading weapons and armors as well as collecting estus flasks (health potions) and other important usable collectibles is just as important as defeating enemies. The game tells a story in a very subtle fashion. As you keep progressing in this world, you will keep on learning about the culture, religion, and people’s everyday lives.

If you miss the good old days, where the in-game deaths come at a huge cost and you feel sick by the hand-holding of the developers that walk you through the game mechanics by numerous tutorials, easy boss battles, then Dark Souls III is what you should be playing for the challenge.

7. Metal Gear Solid V

metal_gear_solid_v

While Hideo Kojima, the mastermind creator of Metal Gear Solid series from Konami, moved away from the company amidst controversy, he still managed to make his last Metal Gear game dubbed Metal Gear Solid V, which is one of the best video game titles to arrive in 2015.

Metal Gear Solid series is considered one of the best stealth espionage action games in its genre and Metal Gear Solid V not only adds to that reputation, it even raises the bar higher. The beautiful graphics and buttery-smooth gameplay make this game a must play. The game features a lengthy single-player story, which features a legendary soldier Venom Snake recuperating from a deadly attack and re-creating his private military army called Diamond Dogs and its mother-base.

The game features tons of weapons with a deep level of customization to add/remove mods, as well as managing your mother-base to unlock different perks and high-end items, which can be used to infiltrate heavily guarded enemy bases without even letting anyone know you were there.

The Inquisitor and the three companions of his choosing can go on this journey to defeat enemies with swords and magic, complete side quests, companion side-quests, interact with non-playable characters, and progress through the long and engaging main story.

The game features deep customization options for clothing, equipment, and other items, to change their appearance based on who it is assigned to, depending upon which party member has equipped it. For instance, a piece of armor automatically adjusts its shape and aesthetics in order to fit a particular character (companion or inquisitor) while it still maintains the character’s identity and their styles.

10. Ori and the Blind Forest

ori-and-the-blind-forest

ac-syndicate

Just like every other Assassin’s Creed game, Syndicate is also set in a fictional history of real world events. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is set in the brand new location of Victorian London in the last years of its Industrial Revolution.

The game features the long drawn war between the Assassins and Templars that has been going on for centuries, but this time Templar’s have completely taken control of the London and Assassins are seriously outnumbered. The twin protagonists Evie and Jacob Frye take matters into their own hands and decide to get a train to London and exterminate the Templar Boss Crawford Starrick and free the city of his corruption.

13. Watch Dogs

watch-dogs

Watch Dogs is an open world in third person perspective video game, where we play as a vigilante who is a highly skilled hacker known as Aiden Pearce. He hacks into the Chicago city’s centralized operating system called “CTOs”, in order to extract revenge against the people who killed his niece, as well as clean his city.

Thanks to Aiden Pearce’s hacking skills, we can do half of the work on a smartphone while standing right in front of the cops/enemies. The game features lots of unique and fun gameplay aspects such as peeking into the houses of civilians, getting to see the personal information of every non-playable character in its world, hacking traffic signals, gas pipelines, bridges, trains and even kill the electricity of the entire city for a few seconds.

The game is the most fun when we mix all the gadgets, hacking skills and weapons we have at our disposal to counter an intense situation.

Availability: Xbox Live ($29.99)

The game also introduces the Bat-Mobile in the game, which can be used to not just travel from point to point but is also featured in many chase sequences and puzzle solving, both in the main missions as well as the side missions.

As the title suggests, the game doesn’t only offer a ride in a Bat-Mobile but also introduces a completely new villain to the series by the name of Arkham Knight, a much more serious, deadlier and determined character whose primary goal is to end the Batman.

15. Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor

shadow-of-mordor

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is a third-person open world video game, where the player controls a ranger by the name of Talion who seeks revenge on the forces of Sauron. The game offers a big map segmented into two and the second part of the map can be accessed after a point in the story.

The story of the game takes place after the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Talion was killed by the Black Hand of Sauron and his spirit gets stuck with the wraith of the Lord Celebrimbor, who was also wronged by Sauron. Enemy of an enemy is always a friend, Talos and Celebrimbor learn to co-exist, and together they try to avenge the death of those they lost.

Best co-op games to play right now with friends and family

The best co-op games will bring you and your friends / family together for an unforgettable digital adventure. We've hand-selected this list based on the quality of the co-op experience on offer, to ensure that you can skip that part where you argue over what's worth downloading or try three or four terrible games before finding a winner. 

Oh, and if you need a spare pad, check out our guide on how to buy an extra PS4 controller cheap or Xbox One controller cheap. And, if you're feeling frugal there's always the best free PS4 games help spread the cost. 

Check out our video for the best co-op games below:  

30. Rainbow Six Siege

Co-op style: Online

Rainbow Six Siege is known for its tense, tactical PvP fights, but its co-op Terrorist Hunt mode, a staple of the series, is deserving of an evening or two of your time. Just like in previous instalments, your job is to clear your chosen level of terrorists as quickly as you can. Don’t expect to go in all guns blazing: you’ll have to clear traps, use your abilities and coordinate timings with up to four squadmates if you want to down all your foes.

Our advice is to dial up the difficulty as high as you can bear it. The greater the challenge, the more you’ll have to rely on teamwork, and this mode is at its best when you’re forced to create detailed plans and execute them flawlessly. Round by round, you’ll feel yourself improving, until eventually, you’re able to sweep through a map like a real-life SWAT team.

Play it on: PC, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X

29. Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

Co-op type: Local

Unless you've invested in a VR headset, you probably haven't even heard of this one. However, it's a uniquely brilliant take on co-op play, and demands your attention. One person wears the VR headset, while a number of other people sit - in the real world - and look at a booklet of bomb-defusal documents.

The person inside the VR headset sees a briefcase with a bomb in it, and various devices to disarm, which he/she describes to the people in the real world. The idea is to use the bomb disposal docs to defuse the device by... actually talking to each other and cooperating. It's all set to a time limit to add tension, and bombs get increasingly tricky to dismantle as you play. It's brilliant fun, and a perfect party game.

Plus, it's now on Switch, so one of you will have the console in your hands, the other the instruction manual. It's a great piece of teamwork, and a word of warning, may ruin families. 

Play it on: PC, PS4, PS VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Nintendo Switch, PS5, Xbox Series X

28. Don't Starve Together

Co-op type: Local and online

The threat of permadeath is somehow softened when it’s shared. I mean, you’ll all still die but at least there’s comfort, and blame, when you’re playing co-op. Don’t Starve’s resource gathering, base-building challenge was already great fun, but it’s even more so with a friend. Especially as you can split the workload and responsibilities as you tend to your home or farm, and explore the world to find more of whatever you need to make it through another day. 

Play it on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Xbox Series X, PS5

27. Far Cry 6

Co-op type: Online

Taking down Anton Castillo and bringing peace - or at least a better life - to Yara is a huge undertaking. You'll have to find allies, take down figureheads and power-hungry rulers, and above all-else, survive. Be a guerilla, fly planes, soar across the treetops in a wingsuit... whatever you do is only better - and safer - with a friend in toe. And what fun you'll have. 

You can either play through the entire game together in co-op, or jump into the awesome Special Ops missions that are fun and brilliantly tricky. 

Play it on: PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X

26. Deep Rock Galactic

Co-op style: Online

Think Left 4 Dead with space dwarves and you won’t be far off. Deep Rock Galactic is a team-based shooter where you and up to three stout friends rocket into a procedurally-generated planet in search of minerals. To find what you want, you’ll each have to use your class-specific abilities, slinging grappling hooks, creating platforms, lighting up dark caves and blowing holes in the scenery to create new paths. Every so often, a swarm of alien spiders will jump on you, and you’ll be forced back to back, pulling your trigger for dear life. Its varied, colourful environs never seem to repeat, and when the lights dim and smoke rises, it’s properly atmospheric. 

Play it on: PC, Xbox One

25. Warframe

Co-op type: Online

Tens of millions of people play Warframe so it must be doing something right. It’s an online four player co-op shooter where you explore and fight your way through space in ultra futuristic suits, gaining powers, abilities and new weapons along the way. That’s basically the main draw here - battle things to get more gear to battle more things. Like the Destinys and Monster Hunters of the world this is all about chasing better shotguns and space boots. 

Play it on: PS4, Xbox One, PC 

24. We Were Here

Co-op style: Online and local

The We Were Here trilogy is all about clear communication. Two adventurers are split up and put through a series of escape rooms. While one person tries to solve the puzzle, the other feeds them clues from their own room. By describing your environment and observing how it changes, you’ll be able to puzzle your way out together, often by matching symbols between rooms (which is harder than it sounds when you’re trying to describe a bunch of squiggly lines that all look the same).

The first game is the shortest, but it’s also completely free, so it’s where you should start. Here, one player takes the role of explorer while another is a librarian. The librarian is the one with all the clues, but in We Were Here Too and We Were Here Together, the roles are more equally split. 

Play it now: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS5

23. Payday 2

Co-op type: Online

Sometimes you just feel like robbing a bank. Payday 2 might only do one thing but it does it well as you and four friends  case joints, play with alarms, and try to rob a bank as much as possible before the police get involved. It’s a much more focused experience than some co-op games but that clear direction makes for some some great tension as you rely on your friends to stick to the plan and not shoot the first customer that looks at them funny.  

Play it on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch, PS5, Xbox Series X

22. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Co-op type: Local

If you fancy something a little lighter, that you can take your time with, then Mario XCOM’s turn-based battles are perfect for an afternoon of strategising with a friend. If you’ve not played it before then don’t be fooled by the happy plumber and the fat rabbits in costume. This is a challenge that starts off simple and slowly ramps up to seriously involving multistage battles and boss fights. Before long you’ll be pacing the floor to discuss tactics and planing your attack before grabbing the Joy-Cons and (hopefully) making the winning move. 

Play it on: Switch 

21. Borderlands 3

Co-op style: Online

Borderlands has always been better with friends. What good is a shotgun that chains electric damage between enemies, or a rifle that spits out bouncing saw blades, if you haven’t got a buddy at your side to watch it in action? The main attraction of the series has always been finding ever-wackier guns to shoot at ever-wackier enemies, and Borderlands 3 is the wackiest in the series so far. Many weapons have absurd alternate fire modes, and the world is bigger and far more varied.

In previous Borderlands, loot was shared between players, which meant you had to fight over the best guns. You can play Borderlands 3 that way (its called Coopetition), but in Cooperation mode you’ll get your own discrete pile of weapons showering out of enemies, so you never have to share.

Play it on: PC, PS4, Xbox One

20. Divinity: Original Sin 2

Co-op type: Online

Perhaps not one for a quick casual game with a friend, given this is a huge RPG environment filled with more potential, stories and events than most of us will ever see in one go. But, if you fancy a really deep co-op experience then this will keep you busy for years. As well as an entire nuanced world to explore you can play co-operatively or competitively, with players potentially trying to complete missions in different ways, or to different ends.  

Play it on: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS5, Xbox Series X

19. Cuphead

Co-op style: Online and Local

Cuphead might just be the best-looking game of the last decade, or at least the most stylish. It looks like a mash-up of all the best cartoons from the 1930s – but you’d be forgiven for not noticing that when you’re in the thick of it, because it’s also an ultra-difficult boss rush platformer where you’ll die hundreds of times trying to beat its imaginative enemies. 

Having another player on screen can actually make it more cluttered, and therefore more difficult. But the struggles are worth it when you finally down that boss on your 34th try, and whoop for joy over your headset. You’ll face a casino owner with a dice for a head, a genie on a magic carpet, and a psychedelic carrot. They’re all wonderfully-designed – but don’t stop and stare, because a moment’s hesitation means certain death.

Enjoy.

Red Dead Redemption 2

squirrel_widget_175763

Although Red Dead Redemption 2 starts slow, the amount of depth and variety in mission types will soon have you well and truly hooked. It is also massive, so make sure you put aside a month to get through everything it has to offer. And, with the addition of Red Dead Online, you'll have plenty to do even after the single-player story is finished.

Gears 5

squirrel_widget_148916

The fifth instalment in the Gears of War series - not including the prequel, Judgment - is a tour de force of a game that adds open world elements for the first time to great effect. It also puts you in the oversized COG shoes of Kait, the franchise's first female lead character, and has some truly memorable boss battles.

Borderlands 3

squirrel_widget_148917

Gearbox has created the best Borderlands yet. It feels very familiar to the others in the series, which is to its benefit as that makes it easy to launch straight into, but there is enough new and improved to sate the appetites of fans and newcomers alike.

The Outer Worlds

squirrel_widget_168890

If you're a fan of action-RPGs and crave some proper Fallout-style action that's distilled to its proper essence – i.e. with none of that building nonsense or other extraneous elements – then you'll love The Outer Worlds.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

squirrel_widget_148920

Along with the superb single-player campaign and Special Ops, CoD: Modern Warfare all adds up to a mighty fine package. If there was a suspicion in recent years that the Call of Duty franchise was beginning to creak under the strain of its annual nature (albeit with a rotating roster of three developers taking turns), this game does a great job of allaying such fears. We'd recommend it over the newer Black Ops Cold War.

Fortnite

Fortnite is free to play and aimed at everyone - kids and adults alike. The mixture of first-person shooter gameplay, base-building and cartoon graphics attract young and old and with cross-platform play you can even take on those on Switch or PS4.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

Otherwise known as PUBG, this essentially kicked off the now massively popular Battle Royale format. It started on PC but came to Xbox One first - in terms of home console releases. It's no longer exclusive but the Xbox One version benefits from being around longer than PS4 and looks especially good on an Xbox One X.

Metro Exodus

squirrel_widget_175969

Post-apocalyptic games may have been done to death, but Metro Exodus still manages to generate a new spin on the genre, due at least in part to its uniquely Eastern European worldview. It's a fine game too: beautifully crafted, intelligently placed, rich in terms of story and endowed with gameplay that is both satisfyingly varied and nicely fettled.

Assassin's Creed: Valhalla

squirrel_widget_306507

Assassin's Creed: Odyssey breathed fresh life into the franchise and Valhalla cements its best parts. You take on the role of Eivor, a Viking warrior tasked with settling their people in England, and it's a rip-roaring tale to enjoy. 

Control

squirrel_widget_148915

If you like third-person shooters then Control offers up one that'll feel quite unlike any you've previously played, thanks to its stratospherically weird paranormal storyline. Both in terms of gameplay and ambiance, Control is utterly original, very distinctive and deeply satisfying, thanks to a decent roster of side-missions and challenges beyond the main story.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps

squirrel_widget_148927

A delightful sequel to Ori and the Blind Forest, this lovely platformer will win you over with gorgeous artwork and smooth, satisfying gameplay. It's an impressive package through and through, and can also scale up to give a serious challenge if you crank up the difficulty. Its gentle story and characterful animations should live long in the memory. 

Spyro Reignited Trilogy

squirrel_widget_175971

This is a splendid remaster of one of the most endearing platform game series of the 90s. It offers each of Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon but with a major, modern overhaul of the visuals and audio. Developer Toys for Bob even got the voice actor for the two sequels to revoice Spyro in the first for continuity.

Forza Horizon 4

squirrel_widget_145831

Not just one of the best driving games on the Xbox One, Forza Horizon 4 is one of the best on any games machine. Its UK setting works wonderfully for providing great variety in race styles and conditions. Plus, the seasons mechanic, with spring, summer, autumn and winter offering different themes throughout your gaming experience, makes for superb longevity.

Hitman 3

squirrel_widget_3882247

The Hitman reboot was a great episodic adventure but the newest sequel is even better - possibly the best stealth game ever, in fact. You'll need patience but the sheer number of ways to complete each assassination mission make it a game you will come back to again and again. This game also upgrades the episodes of the first two entries, so you can revisit them too using the new and improved game engine.

Doom

squirrel_widget_175973

Whatever Bethesda may believe, and whatever the tastes of millennials, Doom is all about its single-player campaign, which is a blood-smattered brilliant beast of a game. It's extensive, insanely hectic, unbelievably satisfying, gloriously gory to behold, and more than worthy update of the classic original.

Resident Evil 2

squirrel_widget_146879

The original Resident Evil 2's horror dynamics garnered a huge amount of praise at the time. The 2019 remake makes the maximum use of modern technology to take them to an even higher plane. As a result the new Resident Evil 2 is an absolute tour de force - it's nothing less than an object lesson in how to remake an old game.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

squirrel_widget_145732

The last part of Lara Croft's origin trilogy is also the best. It is bigger than her previous two outings, has a more involving storyline and plenty of tombs to raid. The skill tree and role-playing elements are superbly realised and the graphics are simply stunning at times - especially when presented in 4K on an Xbox One X.

Monster Hunter: World

squirrel_widget_175975

Monster Hunter: World proves to be gloriously addictive and endlessly charming, offering an open world experience like few others. Environments are teeming with life and the RPG elements are great and easy to get to grips with, even to franchise newcomers. You'll soon find yourself addicted to both its charm and challenges. Much like us.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

squirrel_widget_175976

When Electronic Arts secured the Star Wars licence, there was a lot of new hope (pardon the pun) that we'd get games of the quality of Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II and Knights of the Old Republic. Sadly, while Battlefront I and II offered great multiplayer action and authentic visuals, they lacked in story or depth. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order makes up for it in spades, with an expansive single-player campaign and gameplay that feels like a cross between Dark Souls and Tomb Raider. The force is strong in this one.

Sea of Thieves

squirrel_widget_144196

Sea of Thieves represents a risky approach to create a gameplay experience which feels fresh and unique. But it succeeds. It might just be the first game to nail the knotty conundrum of providing the tools with which gamers can create their own narratives.

Dark Souls 3

squirrel_widget_175979

As anyone who has played a Dark Souls game would expect, Dark Souls 3 is huge, gothic, creepy, studded with bosses which, when you first encounter them, seem impossibly daunting, yet irresistibly addictive. At times, you will curse the impulse which propels you back into its fetid world, as you struggle to advance even a couple of hundred metres. But the pay-off is that any small triumphs you manage to pull off will be so hard-won that they feel like mighty victories.

Halo 5: Guardians

squirrel_widget_135714

The fifth instalment of Master Chief’s adventures adds a fresh game style to the proceedings in the form of co-operative play during the campaign mode. You are always accompanied by three other characters for each mission, whether that’s with Master Chief’s team or a new team of Spartans led by Jameson Locke. And don’t worry if you can’t find three friends to play along with, Halo 5 does a very good job with artificial intelligence to give your companions life. There’s also the excellent new multiplayer mode to provide plenty of fun: Warzone. It can lead to some seriously bonkers battles.

No Man's Sky

squirrel_widget_175980

While No Man's Sky was criticised a fair amount straight after launch, continual updates and content patches have arrived to turn it into the space exploration game we all originally hoped for. And the long-awaited Xbox One version came with them from launch. Result.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

squirrel_widget_133845

Not just one of the best games on the Xbox One, The Witcher 3 can lay claim as being one of the best of all time. It is an extraordinary feat in game design, where it seems that every action undertaken in the massive third-person RPG has an effect on the game world. Save a merchant from some bandits in a random encounter, for example, you might meet him again many hours later in a city, where he gives you a massive discount on items he has for sale. The world itself also seems alive and vibrant while the game is also capable of testing your skills so you don’t just blitz through it.

Grand Theft Auto V

squirrel_widget_175982

It took a while to get GTA V onto the current generation consoles but nobody can complain considering how much extra the improved game offers over the original version. For a start, Rockstar added a whole new first-person mode, which enables the player to experience the game from a different perspective, even if completed before. Plus, the graphics were given a tasty overhaul to make San Andreas look more spectacular than ever. And let’s face it, GTA V was always one of the best games available anyway.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

squirrel_widget_175984

Kojima’s last Metal Gear Solid game for Konami also happens to be his grandest moment. Taking the franchise into the realms of open world seems to have been an inspired decision, with so much to do and missions to complete that you will be playing for hours. We know, we’ve still not seen everything there is to see in the game. We also love the way you can tackle just about everything in multiple fashions – run and gun or sneaking around are just two ways you can complete objectives, each causing different reactions.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection

squirrel_widget_131655

With Halo: The Master Chief Collection, 343 Industries put together an amazing package of the four best Halo games remastered for the current generation console. We've had Halo 5: Guardians since release, but the previous four are a worthy set of games regardless. The Xbox One version of Halo 2 is such an amazing upgrade to the Xbox original that it's almost worth the money on its own.

Destiny 2

squirrel_widget_175985

Destiny 2 might have had its critics at launch, but it has improved into a very fine game, with multiple upgrades and campaign add-ons over the years. And, with Bungie having made the core experience free-to-play after becoming a self-publisher, there is now no excuse not to give it a whirl.

Minecraft

squirrel_widget_175986

The continuing success of Minecraft might come as a surprise to some but with each new release a new generation of fans is born. And, because Microsoft is now the sole owner of the series, the Xbox One version is exemplary. It also offers cross-platform play.

Alien: Isolation

squirrel_widget_175987

Winner in the best game category at the Pocket-lint Gadget Awards way back in 2014, Alien: Isolation maybe took many by surprise with its adherence to the tone of the first Alien movie, both graphically and thematically. Rather that arm you with hefty weaponry and send floods of xenomorphs in your direction, the name of the game is survival as you are hunted through a destroyed space station by just the one Alien. Cue some pant-wettingly scary moments.

Far Cry 4

squirrel_widget_175988

Although we love Far Cry 5, the former outing for the series is one of our favourite first-person shooters and remains the better of the two. Far Cry 4 has everything a modern game should offer. At its heart it's an FPS, but there are role-playing game elements, driving challenges, wonderful co-op play and one of the largest open world maps we've seen in such a game. The mission structure is excellent, while the amount of side missions and other things you can do is almost overwhelming. But perhaps the best thing about Far Cry 4 is the superb villain in Pagan Min. Evil and funny in equal measure and the closest you'll get to a truly realised Bond-style foe in gaming.

Dragon Age: Inquisition

squirrel_widget_175989

Although it helps to have played the previous Dragon Age games on older consoles beforehand – at least to follow the plot – Dragon Age: Inquisition is a mighty role-playing game from Bioware that deserves inspection regardless of whether you are a fan of the genre or not. Its storyline is broad and far reaching and the game has perhaps the most side missions and other things to do off the beaten path as any we can remember.

Batman: Arkham Knight

squirrel_widget_175990

Bigger than the other Batman games before it and stunningly beautiful to boot, Arkham Knight wraps up the trilogy in spectacular fashion. Without giving away too many spoilers, the use of the Joker throughout the game is inspired and we think the inclusion of the Batmobile adds variety to missions and the overall gameplay. Plus, the playable areas of Gotham City are so big this time around that it’s a thrill racing around them in the super-powered vehicle.

Project Cars: Game of the Year Edition

squirrel_widget_175991

The Forza series might be the best known in the simulation driving game genre when it comes to Xbox One, but the community created Project Cars matches it for realistic driving experiences. Where Project Cars takes the idea a little further is in offering the most amount of customisation for races you are likely to see in a racing game, even down to the ability of choosing how the weather will change with each lap. The first game is also far superior to the sequel, we feel.

Life is Strange

Without a major licence to hang onto, the original Life is Strange could have escaped your notice, even though it features every bit as engrossing a story as The Walking Dead or other episodic adventure game. The five episodes, which follow teenage girl Max after she discovers she can turn back time, feature fantastic voice acting and twists and turns that will have you guessing until the very end. And the best part about it is that your actions determine the outcome. Its excellent sequel is also well worth your time.

Rocket League

squirrel_widget_175997

A bizarre hybrid of footy, driving sims and Robot Wars, Rocket League in an online multiplayer team game that's become a massive cult hit. Two teams of up to eight players have to basically use their rocket-powered cars to force a giant football into their opponents' goal. Bonkers and brilliant in equal measure.

Quantum Break focuses on providing a cinematic shootout experience. This game is a seamless mix of gunplay and TV-style storytelling, a stylish and often exhilarating third-person shooter.

2. Red Dead Redemption II

Release Date: October 26, 2018 | Developers: Rockstar Studios | Publishers: Rockstar Games

Red Dead Redemption 2 has picked up rave reviews for its extensive open world, intuitive gameplay, and above all, an arguably picture-perfect rendition of the Wild West. 

It is a big open-world game with an incredible story and characters, which develop as you continue with the primary objectives. While a lot of big-sized open-world games make sacrifices in the RPG mechanics, Red Dead Redemption II makes an exception.

The game establishes itself as a western-themed action-adventure game set in the late 19th century. The story features a botched robbery and its fallback on the gang as they try to amass huge wealthand retire. The gang goes through a lot of gory and violent faceoffs with the law and rival gangs. The final scenes of this game foreshadow the eventsof the predecessor Red Dead Redemption.

Butthe reason Red Dead Redemption 2 is often rated as one the best games of the decade is because of its exceptional gameplay techniques. You can do nearly anything in it – go camping and live off the land, or simply wile away the days at the tavern. It does share some features with GTA V because of having the same developer, reason more get in!
