Just picked up a new Xbox One but don’t know what to go for? Well that’s why we’re here. Welcome to and today we’ll be counting down our Top 10 Xbox One games.

For this list, we’re looking for the essential games that you should pick up for your system as of Christmas 2016, if it can be played on the One, then it’s eligible for this list.

#10: “Gears of War 4” (2016)

Start revving those chainsaws guys, because the Locust—I mean Swarm—are coming. Set 25 years after Gears of War 3, the newest entry into this gory series maintains its signature cover-based shooting gameplay with a new and exciting story to boot. As it’s the first to be released on Xbox One, it looks absolutely gorgeous, and allows for more chaos to happen on screen without hiccups. It has a smooth 60 frames per second multiplayer experience and it’s cross-play with Windows 10 users, so there’ll never be a shortage of players.

#9: “Battlefield 1” (2016)

Straying from the usual direction developers are tending to take us in these days, DICE has brought us back to the past instead of the future, and you can count on them to make a Battlefield game set during World War I chaotic and exciting. A re-worked melee combat system makes matches feel a lot more visceral, and the wide and varied maps allow for a multitude of ways to get to your objective. With bullets whizzing past your head, buildings crumbling before you, and planes falling out of the sky, you’ll think you’re really there.

#8: “Overwatch” (2016)

It seems like everyone is playing Overwatch right now, and with good reason. Exciting, fast-paced squad-based teamwork is addicting, especially when you’re on a winning streak. Having over 20 playable characters with unique abilities means gameplay never gets stale, and with your stats recorded per hero, it gives you a reason to switch between them. Win or lose, you’ll still have a good time. Communication is a must, and when you co-ordinate with your squad to achieve victory, there’s no better feeling, especially when you win after you’ve been frozen by Mei a dozen times.

#7: “Sunset Overdrive” (2014)

It’s not often you play a game where getting from point A to point B is as fun as what awaits you at your destination, and that’s why Sunset Overdrive is a blast to play. It doesn’t take itself seriously and boasts a hilarious script. There are a ton of different ways to get around, with a plethora of wacky weapons to kill monsters with. Fluidity in traversal keeps your adrenaline pumping as you blast your way through to your objective. Layered player customization keeps it fresh, and no two experiences are ever the same.

#6: “DOOM” (2016)

A shooter without regenerating health and aiming down sights? Hard to believe in this day and age, but that’s why the latest Doom is so highly acclaimed. A welcome return to roots for the franchise that revolutionized the genre back when the original came out. This latest entry is fast-paced, gory, and has a straight to the point story with hordes of grotesque demons straight from Hell to vanquish. You’ll get so into it you’ll be begging to go to Hell to keep your onslaught going. Nothing quite like carving through an enemy with a chainsaw while industrial metal blares in the background. Count us in.

#5: “Halo: The Master Chief Collection” (2014)

The Master Chief is pretty much the mascot of Xbox, and rightly so. Including a remastered Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2, and graphical upgrades to the 3rdand 4th games, there’s no better way to experience this amazing series. There are over 100 multiplayer maps between them with limitless game mode and map customization, thanks to Forge. All four campaigns are a blast to play and with the added ODST to the collection, renowned soundtrack and sound design that creates an immersive atmosphere, this is the definitive Halo experience. However, the online servers are apparently STILL are having issues, which is why it isn’t higher

#4: “Dark Souls III” (2016)

By now, you’ve probably died enough, but the third entry in this immensely challenging series won’t care. With great challenge comes great reward, and we aren’t just talking about new gear. The satisfaction alone from beating a difficult boss will make you jump for joy and praise the sun, until you’re killed for letting go of the controller. It may be punishing, but it’s incredibly immersive, with environmental storytelling at its finest, and a hauntingly beautiful soundtrack. Its dark world keeps you constantly on edge, and by the end of it, you’ll feel like you’ve really transformed as a player and accomplished something, which is a true testament to the game’s design and direction. Go link that fire.

#3: “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” (2015)

Tactical Espionage is definitely right with Metal Gear Solid V, the biggest entry into the widely popular franchise. There are literally dozens of ways to accomplish your objectives, with so many varying factors such as time of day, weather, patrol shifts, and whether or not you just want to feel like a badass. It’s beautifully directed with amazing performances from all the actors. Each encounter is a puzzle of its own, and although its story is unfortunately not as fleshed out as the previous games, you’ll still have a lot to share with others based on your own experiences.

#2: “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” (2015)

Probably the most in-depth, layered RPG out now, The Witcher 3 is a masterpiece in almost every aspect. There’s hundreds of hours of content with an enormous map that rewards constant exploration. It’s easy to lose yourself in this rich world. Every character and every creature have their own stories, and what you do has a lasting impact on the narrative and environment. The plot is engaging, and no two quests are the same. Combat is as responsive and fluid as you’d expect, with so much loot to be found. The Witcher 3 is not only the one of greatest RPG you’ll ever experience, but arguably the best open-world game you’ll ever play too boot.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few Honorable Mentions:

“Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare” (2016)

“Rocket League” (2015)

“Fifa 17” (2016)

#1: “Forza Horizon 3” (2016)

An amazing soundtrack, perfect vehicle handling and a breathtaking location come together beautifully in this stunning entry into the long running Forza series. It improves on its predecessors in every way. There’s a huge garage, and every car can be heavily customized. The sound design and weather effects are top notch, and its open-world Australia locale contains an array of different landscapes to race on. There’s enough content in this game to satisfy any car enthusiast, and even if you aren’t a fan of racing games, we guarantee you’ll still have fun with this one.
