4. Ori and the Blind Forest

Ori and the Blind Forest is that non- mainstream title , precisely because it doesn't follow a pattern. To begin with, it's a title with 2D gameplay . The graphics, which are very beautiful, by the way, look a little drawn, which makes an interesting impression. The protagonists are Ori, a guardian spirit, and Sein, who is the eyes and light of the Spirit Tree. The first character navigates the environment using specific skills, in addition to jumping, jumping and climbing things. Sein fires flames to eliminate enemies and other obstacles. Controlling these two characters, you have a very simple game. The player's goal is to have the forest restored and recovered in its full splendor. For this, you will interact with the environment as you progress, in order to recover the three elements that balance the land of Nibel: water, wind and heat. This mission is carried out against a very beautiful and deep narrative background. Perhaps the greatest feature of this game and the reason for its success is the fact that it is a work of art. It is not for nothing that a direct sequel was announced, Ori and the will of wasps .

  • Are you a fan of games with a more artistic concept
  • Enjoy 2D experiences

5. Quantum Break

Quantum Break is, essentially, an action game. Despite this, it offers an innovative gaming experience within the genre. His narrative brings a scientific experiment that sought the manipulation of time. It ended up going wrong, however. Time was affected, as well as the game's protagonists, Paul Serene and Jack Joyce, who can now control the time. This brings interesting possibilities in terms of gameplay . Being able to change the time allows the player different ways of interacting with enemies and with the game itself. Quantum Break , therefore, has consequences for your actions. There is not exactly a linear and fixed story.
Speaking of gameplay, it follows a pattern presented by other third-person shooter games. Controlling Jack Joyce, you have a range of firearms at your disposal that you can use. In addition to being able, of course, to freeze and manipulate time to your advantage. In the best Matrix style , you can dodge bullets, escape and attack opponents using this power. Time is of the essence in Quantum Break . If you want, for example, you can face most enemies using just that power. It is possible to build a shield, teleport to an opponent, among many other options. This is a great game for anyone who wants a "different" shooter . Quantum Break still brings good puzzles , in addition to hindering progression in missions, since the scenario is always collapsing in time. Like many games of the genre, the player is required to meet goals within each segment to advance to the next. Each mission in the game is interspersed with scenes from the television series that discuss the consequences of your decision in the game. You should play this game if:
  • Want a deep narrative experience
  • Liking shooters that are more than just using guns

ReCore appears as a fun action and platform game. Another Xbox One exclusive, brings a very interesting plot . The world was devastated by a plague, and now a distant planet must be colonized. A mission is sent to this planet, Far Eden, but something went wrong. Your mission, under the control of Joule Adams, is to find out what went wrong and what this star has in store for humanity. Joule is accompanied by three robots, which assist her in her exploration. Obviously, the world is open, which allows the collection of resources and does not require the player to have to follow the missions linearly. There are puzzles to be solved, as well as enemies. Both Joule and his fellow robots can be evolved. Joule can have his life increased, and his weapons can also be improved. In fact, Joule's weapons come in three colors: yellow, red and blue. Each color corresponds to a specific type of enemy. A blue enemy, for example, can only be eliminated by a blue colored weapon. Friendly robots can also be evolved and improved. You can even partially change your physical structure. It is a game set in a hostile land, with sandstorms and other natural phenomena that can hinder the progression of the gameplay . It is a game that is worth trying out for those who have an Xbox One and like futuristic narratives.

There are strong RPG features in State of Decay 2 . That's because you need to develop the skills of the characters, so that survival in this post-apocalyptic world is possible. This is even more evident when playing with other players . Whoever is not able to face zombies and even other humans, will certainly be left behind. Another very positive and fun point of State of Decay 2 is the fact that its actions have immediate consequences in the game world. Have you ever wondered what you would do if you had to save your life and leave a friend behind? Well Here you must create your own moral code.

8. Gears of War 4

The Gears of War franchise marked all generations that had Xbox consoles. Gears of War 4 is one of the most celebrated shooters on the Xbox One, both for its gameplay mechanics and for details such as narrative and setting. It does not bring much evolution in terms of gameplay compared to the previous title, but it still exceeds expectations. In terms of innovation for the franchise, Gears of War 4 brings some interesting combat mechanics. New weapons appear in this direction, such as Buzzkill and Dropshot. The first launches saw blades at enemies, while the second drops explosives into the environment. It is now also possible to use a knife for hand-to-hand combat. Pushes can be given to enemies, displacing them from their defensive positions. They can do the same for you, so it requires attention on the battlefield, as they can execute you quickly. The game also has a system that makes the weather interfere with the game. Winds and storms, for example, will certainly make fighting body and body difficult. Likewise, aiming with your weapons in a windstorm or storm may not be an easy task. The Gears of War 4 narrative puts the player on the planet Sera, about 25 years after what happened in the last Gears . As the exploitation of fuels destroyed the planet in some way, dangerous climate changes arose. Cities were created to protect people from these changes. The problem is that some rebels refused to follow martial laws that prohibited living outside cities. The goal of the player, therefore, is to face these people. You should play this game if:
  • Liking Mad Max- like narratives
  • Interest in shooters with technological weapons

9. Dead Rising 3

Although there is already Dead Rising 4 , it is the 3rd favorite of Xbox One players. It was a little revolutionary compared to previous titles. There is now no mandatory timer, for example, although you can play with it if you follow Nightmare mode .
In Dead Rising 3 you can still combine weapons to form others, just as you can combine vehicles. There is no need, however, for desks to do this. Vehicles are important, especially in cooperative modes. In these modes, you can play in the company of a random player who is invited by the game's own system. Finally, this game uses the functions of Xbox Kinect and SmartGlass very well. If you choose to use this device, zombies may be alerted by noise you make in the microphone. In fact, you can scream to get the attention of the creatures and confuse or even distract them. You should play this game if:
  • Liking zombies (or killing them)
  • Want a satisfying multiplayer experience

10. Forza Horizon 3

Forza Horizon 3 is, according to experts, one of the best racing games ever created. It is no wonder that, even with Forza Motorsport 7 on the list, he is also present. It takes place in an open world representation of Australia. There are several references to the country, such as the famous Outback restaurant. For what it matters, Forza Horizon 3 is much more than a racing game. In previous games, the player was one of the runners of the great Horizon Festival. Now you are the owner of the festival, so in addition to running and experiencing the excitement of the tracks, you can and must deal with bureaucratic aspects. Among them is hiring and firing professionals. Customization of your corridor exists, although limited to a few options. Cars can also be customized and can be sold online for other players to buy. Something really fun is that as you progress through the game you can discover vintage , classic cars that are restored and can be used in racing. The racing modes are those already known in the series and even in other racing games. Time Trial , Drifting and normal competitions. Bucket List mode is something specific to Forza Horizon , in which the player receives a car and needs to complete a particular task with it. For all the options that Forza Horizon 3 brought in terms of gameplay , in addition to being a visually beautiful game, it is an essential title in the library of Xbox lovers . You should play this game if:
  • Want to experience one of the best or the best game in the Forza series

11. Halo 4

We couldn't leave a game in the Halo series off the list. The chosen one, Halo 4 , represents a new beginning of the franchise, since he is the first of a new trilogy. In addition, it brings back the protagonist Master Chief, a human super soldier. He is accompanied by an artificial intelligence called Cortana. Halo 4 is played in a mix of third person and first person. Most of the time it is a first person shooter , changing only in specific cases, when using certain weapons or even vehicles. The first person display, by the way, is quite interesting. It is as if you are wearing a technological helmet. You can see information about your life, your missions and can even detect the presence of enemies.
In Halo 4 you can play the campaign in single player mode or with a friend in local cooperative mode, dividing the screen. Another interesting game mode is Forge. It allows the player to edit maps in multiplayer mode . This mode is similar to many other shooter games . You must win matches with other players to move up the online ranking . For its challenging, relatively extensive and full of combat possibilities campaign, Halo marked the Xbox One for giving the franchise a new "start". With a smooth and impactful gameplay , it is one of the best games on this console and even its continuation has failed to overcome it. You should play this game if:
  • Want to know one of the most classic Xbox games
  • For a fan of gameplay with alien elements

12. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG)

PUBG Battlegrounds is a very simple game, but it ended up conquering the whole world. Today it is no longer exclusive to Xbox One, as it is now available for mobile . It consists of the following: up to a hundred players at a time only parachute to an island. On this island you must collect equipment, weapons and everything that can help you to kill the other players . And, of course, be the only survivor. The interesting thing about PUBG is that space is being reduced every second. As you are confined together with other players, it becomes increasingly difficult to survive. It is as if it were a fight against time, not just against enemies. The impact of this game was so great that PUBG was raised to the rank of e-sport . Currently in many countries there are official competitions for the game. In addition, this game was one of the main responsible for popularizing the Battle Royale genre , encouraging other companies to create similar games. This contributed a lot for games to be seen as sports. Therefore, even if it is not one of the most critically acclaimed games, it deserves to be on this list of the best Xbox One games for its great cultural impact. You should play this game if:
  • Like Battle Royale
  • Want to enter the world of e-sports
