5 Must Play Games on Xbox One

Must play games on the Xbox One for new owners or current.

With just under two years under the new generation there is a litany of games that are released. There are games that you may have looked at, but aren't quite sure if you may like them Here is a small list of games that you may enjoy on the Xbox One. Although most of these are exclusives there will be some multi platform games that are throughly enjoyable on any console.

Ryse: Son of Rome

Although Ryse had not gotten the best reviews it was one of the first games I had played through on the Xbox One. Ryse easily boasts one of the games with the best graphics to date on the X1. This game features a simplistic control scheme, a meaty gameplay factor, and for those that want it a multiplayer feature to enjoy with your online friends.

Sunset Overdrive

Sunset Overdrive was hyped since the original announcement. This game is by far one of the most fun games out there if you are looking for an open world style. Sunset Overdrive also allows players to play online with friends and offers much more on the single player level than the above stated title.

Lords of The Fallen

Lords of The Fallen is a current gen launch. This game had Dark Souls fans captivated since the initial trailer. This game seems like an easier transition into the Dark Souls gameplay style. Lords of The Fallen is a more forgiving and enjoyable for the casual gamer and should be given a try. This action RPG is amazing in every aspect and is great to sink single player hours into.

Dead Rising 3

Dead Rising 3 was a launch title for the X1 and also one of the most enjoyable to date. This free roam zombie slaughterfest is more beautiful than its predecessors. Dead Rising 3 has more to offer in the way of graphics, gamesplay, and open world mechanics. As an added bonus if you have a smartphone or compatible tablet with the Xbox One Smartglass app you are able to access bonus parts of the game.

Need For Speed Rivals

Need For Speed Rivals is one of the most impressive racing games I have seen on X1. Although the car selection is not as bulked up as Forza the gameplay is not comparable. The amazing multiplayer functionality of Need For Speed is hard to describe. The open world ability to interfere with other player's racing is amazing. This game also allows players to take roles as a police officer chasing down other players as they compete against one another.

As most of these are older games there is a good amount of us that have played these games. However, with recent price drops or promotions there are plenty of players joining the current generation of consoles and the above list may make choosing certain games slightly easier.
