The Best Xbox One Games Of 2015 So Far

Dealspwn: "We've already covered the best PS4, PS Vita, Wii U and 3DS games of the last six months, so it's high time we got to Microsoft's machine.

Though there are a fair few AAA multiplatform games of note, it's also impressive to see just how many new and exciting experiences have made their way to the platform or are even being adapted from the PC for an entirely new audience."

It's a surprisingly varied and quality exclusive output for the slower part of the year. Loads of multiplats aren't on here either!

Also, SMITE is amazing.

Yeah the X1 really does have a diverse library of some really great games. It looks like it will only get better with the likes of Phantom Dust, Recore, Sea of Thieves, Scalebound and others set to join the fray.

Fro_xoxo885d ago

I'm still playing Ori..
taking my precious time with it.

I like the look of this colorful SMITE.

I've yet to get the Witcher 3.

Elite Dangerous looks fun too..

Letthewookiewin885d ago

Just beat Ori, it's an amazing game.

FlexLuger885d ago

I just bought ori in the sale yesterday along with white night and geometry wars. Havent played them yet as im still farming like crazy on neverwinter's tiamat event which had been extended for another 7 days ( or delayed the opening of the temple? lol..either way I got 500 dragon coffers and a tonne of epic gear I dont need as it dont fit my hunter ranger. Neverwinter should be on that list as well. Best MMO on consoles as far as im concerned. ESO is nice but neverwinter seems to have taken more of my money and time. says it all really.

I bought smites founders pack a while back and its nice to see more players on since it went into open BETA. MY fave MOBA :)

Elite dangerous? I bought it without even bothering to trial. I thought I wasnt gonna get to play it till winter but the is early access was a pleasant and welcome surprise. The game has not disappointed! steep learning curve though.

Thing is I only got my X1 in april. So Im still catching up with games like FM5, FH2, titanfall, MCC, SSOD, pneuma, nemo and then there is the multiplayer multiplats, with all my friends :).. I got too much to play and do with this console. I love it.

Looking ahead we got Gear remaster, gigantic, below, cuphead, inside, project solus, fable legends..and of course the big trio this fall..tombraider, A VERY promising FM6 with all the features that it has been missing for some time(rain, night)and halo 5 with its new MP modes and features is going to rock XBL.

Ill be getting starwars, destiny DLC and probably COD (only if enough of my friends insist) on Xb1, so I can play them with my long time friends. some of us have known eachother since the begining of X360, and I cant think of a batter bunch of people to play MP games with.

As a new-ish Xb1, user, l am a bit overwhelmed with how good this console is.I had my doubts, man! lol

Fro_xoxo885d ago

dude, the console is just awesome.

I had to uninstall Halo MCC 'cause I was so hooked on MP in order to finish some of my SP games. And, I've still got to play through Halo-4 SP too in time for 5.

SSOD has to be one of the best games on XO. I really enjoyed traversal in that game.. crazy wacky fun.

No new games for me till I beat at least one of my SP games.

I'm trying to avoid feeling overwhelmed with games ^_^.

Ori, such a great game. Will be one that is remembered ala Shadow Complex from the early 360 days.

Although, not a fanboy comment, purely my opinion (but hey take it as you wil and go into full fanboy defence mode), there isn't much to choose from SO FAR on XONE this year. That will change come the end of the year.

poor_cus_of_games885d ago

Can't be a fan boy for pointing out the truth.

FlexLuger885d ago

"there isn't much to choose from SO FAR on XONE this year. "

See my comment above. As a new user there is plenty of great games to pass the time. Its not like a first time buyer has played SSOD just because it came out last year. Thats called a back catalogue, to a new user. and lets remebers these consoles have still not yet reached critical mass. And speaking as somebody that just got on board there is loads to choose from. I didnt own an xbox last fall. I had my PS4 and X360. I didnt play FH2, MCC or any of those games because I didnt have one. So now I do..I play those games. And they have some serious legs on them. MCC will be a game that is played for the entire duration of x1s life cycle just like all halos before it. then we wil play it some more when the nextbox launches with BC. FH2 is a HUGE game. filled with things to do. Will take months to finish. I still have not even finished FM5 which I bought with my X1 in april. lots I have yet to play.

So its not entirely true to say there is nothing to play even if you caps 'SO FAR' on the end. That is simply not true. If you own an X1 you are more than likely still happily playing some of these games. if you dont you have never played them so it doesnt matter how old it is, really. It would still be a new experience to somebody who has not played it themselves.

chrisco84au885d ago

Thanks for the insightful essay but the topic is best XBONE game THIS YEAR, so yeah your wall of text is null and void as such.

And please read my initial comment in context to not look like a fool next time, I clearly stated there was not much much to choose from SO FAR this year, you know staying on topic, seems you took it to heart, hit fanboy mode and went full defensive. Not the best look.

Nowhere did I say there was nothing at all on the XBONE to play full stop, I was commenting as per the topic about games released this year.

Heck the PS2 has a great, maybe the best catalogue of games, and as per your example of people who may not have played 2014 or earlier XBONE game thus being new experiences I am sure there are people who have not played some of the great PS2 games, So please enlighten me, what is the best PS2 game released so far in 2015?

And yes, I know what a back catalogue is, mine is overflowing with games to catch up on. I also know how to stay on topic and not completely destroy credibility by fanboy raging for no actual reason.

Glad you are enjoying catching up on all the games though, the catalogue is slowly growing before the explosion this holiday season.

"And yes, I know what a back catalogue is, mine is overflowing with games to catch up on. I also know how to stay on topic and not completely destroy credibility by fanboy raging for no actual reason."

Lol...ok.

For a start I wasnt off topic. I mentioned this years games, like neverwinter, ori and smite, in addition to the fact that as a new user of the console, one would not feel a particular lack of games. Thats a fact. its also relative to the topic at hand. Nice try at pretending to be smart though. And where what part of my comment was raging? Go get some sun. Everything probably looks like an attack on your beloved PS.I didnt even say anything bad about the PS. I simply pointed out in a very civil manor that you are wrong...clearly you fail at comprehension.

I was being nice to you but seeing as you insist on going down this route ok...

"Heck the PS2 has a great, maybe the best catalogue of games, and as per your example of people who may not have played 2014 or earlier XBONE game thus being new experiences I am sure there are people who have not played some of the great PS2 games, So please enlighten me, what is the best PS2 game released so far in 2015? "

Are you being serious? Its laughable that you would suggest a PS2 as poor attempt at twisting my opinion when you damn well know the PS2 is two generations back and offers nothing new. We are talking about current gen consoles..with current line ups..that have a future line up. Its laughable that you have a hard time understanding this? Again...You fail at comprehension in your haste to TRY and discredit ,me. go sit down, man.

And fro brings up a good point...so If I was to go by your logic, the only game worth playing this year on PS4 has been bloodborne. Should new PS4 owners discount infamous, KZ:SF and driveclub then? Because as mediocre as those games are...there aint much else exclusive wise OUT NOW or SO FAR that is worth talking about on PS. MS has three games already that have scored perfect tens. Sony only has one.

chrisco84au884d ago

Fanboy defence mode activated.

I simply stayed on topic and gave my opinion of the best XBONE game this year, while also noting there isn't too choose from so far and explained that will change later in the year with the holiday onslaught.

You buddy went off on a tangent, completely way off topic and beyond. But whatever else helps you sleeps at night.

FlexLuger884d ago

"You buddy went off on a tangent, completely way off topic and beyond. But whatever else helps you sleeps at night."

Firstly im not your buddy. Secondly, if the mods felt I was off topic, they would have given me a restriction. So clearly you're on your own there...'buddy'...

Nice try though. lol

Fro_xoxo885d ago (Edited 885d ago )

I think the same applies to PS4 in my opinion.

Bloodborne is the only noteable release thus far which I look forward to playing when I get a PS4. It's a souls game which is a concept im already familiar with.

Until next spring before we see another top tier games on PS4. Uncharted 4.

That doesn't mean the other games releasing this year are bad.

ninsigma885d ago

Ori and witcher are best from that list imo. Haven't played batman yet so I can't say but I would imagine it's a very good game. I do encourage anyone to play ori though. Especially because it's on sale now.

Rookie_Monster885d ago

It is pretty much slim picking so far as far as retail AAA games are concern on XB1 so far this year but Ori, the monthly character reveal of KI season 2 up to the recent story mode keep me busy every month on XB1. Also got 2 free expansion in the Forza Furious 7 game and Halo ODST HD were also great . Other than that, my PS4 with Bloodborne, MKX, Batman and Witcher 3 on PC had kept me busy so far. That will change though with Rare replay, Gears HD on Aug, Forza 6 in sept, Halo 5 in Oct, and Tomb Raider in November.

crazychris4124885d ago (Edited 885d ago )

Definitely a slow 2015 for Xbox so far. I haven't bought a single game this year for my xbox but I'll be trading in my COD AW xbox for the Forza bundle and I'm most likely getting Halo. No interest in the GOW remaster since I have the the entire series for the 360 n I'm waiting for Tomb Raider to come out for PC.
