The finest games that are only available to play on Microsoft's Xbox One and 4K-ready Xbox One X.
Gears of War is overrated af.
that game is fun af.
I got my X One not long ago and tried the remastered 1st game and got bored pretty quickly. Having a lot of fun with Forza Horizon though.
Do you know what would help Gears of War a lot: a new and varied melee system, a darker tone like the 1st game , and bigger set-pieces
I love Gears. It's definitely not for everyone though. Such a fun co-op game.
Horde is still one of the best co-op experiences going. Overrated it is not.
I just hope Gears and Halo get a reboot. Both franchises have become very stale. I def enjoyed Gears 4 single player and mp more than Halo 5's.
@painted I feel like Gears 5 will be a bit of a departure of what we have come to expect from Gears. Looks like we are getting open map areas and free traversal and such. Not quite the massive structural change we saw in God of War, but similar in the way they'll handle the world itself. Halo Infinite... honestly who know. Rumors are saying it's going to be a Destiny like game. Some are saying an MMO. Some are saying it's going to be a massive open world game. Either way I'm expecting something new and different from Halo Infinite as well. that engine looked beautiful if that was an accurate representation of what we'll get in the next game.
An openworld sandbox Halo with co op would be amazing! I mean, they could still make the traditional Halo game but 343 have proven after 2 tries they arent great at making a Halo single player experience. They are best at making mp. I really wish 343 would just make a new i.p. and let someone else make a Halo. Does 343 have to be tied to making Halo games for the rest of eternity... i mean thats got to get boring. I say let gears dev make halo and halo devs make gears lol. Anything has to be better than H5 and G4. Halo 3 and Gears 2 are prob my faves. I can still remember how blown away i was with the first halo and gears... and i havent had that feeling of excitement from those franchises in a really LONG time
It's an awesome series.I play it like a 3D platformer with cover acting as a platform which I use to move across the arena. The bosses are top notch and I like the unashamed cheesy story lines. One of the best series I've played.
Campaign better than halo campaign.
The online is great, but very unforgiving for noobs.
Playing the devil's advocate: So is the entire Uncharted series.
I really enjoyed the first. I'm not exactly a good judge of quality though since those types of games aren't really my cup of tea. Though I am surprised they found 10 exclusives to list. (Obviously joking, in case it needs to be said)
My biggest take away from Gears is when something dies the choice for graphic use is hamburger shrapnel. Very low budget.
Gears of War 4 is a very fun game. It also looks fantastic in 4K on X1X!
Not only did PUBG make it on this list, it somehow scored #2. Really now?
It just shows how weak the Xbox line up is, half the games on the list are on Steam and another half of the games are from 2014/2015
So one guys opinion = the Xbox communities opinion?
And most of the xb1 best games are third partys. Ori, Cuphead, Sunset Overdrive, and Forza (until ms bought them). I swear its like MS in intentionally trying to abandon the hardware biz. Next gen with streaming, there will be almost no reason for gamers as a whole to even invest in xbox. Its sad really.
“I swear its like MS in intentionally trying to abandon the hardware biz.” Forgive me if I’m wrog, but didn’t MS just acquired 5 new studios not too long ago? And there is a huge rumor going around that Obsidian is a part of MS also. Plus, they are having an XO event this year which will have even more announcements. So how are they abandoning anything exactly? “Its sad really.” What is sad? The fact that you act like a fanboy and ignore positive things that MS have done recently?
@King_Noctis Acquiring studios is only a positive thing when the acquired studios actually release games. M$ has a REALLY bad track record of acquiring studios only to cancel their games and close them down. Every single XBox exclusive this generation that looked interesting was cancelled by M$. Every. Single. One.
Sea of Thieves is the #1 Xbox One exclusive in this website’s opinion? That’s all kinds of wrong
Sea of Thieves could have been great but it was a big map with little other players and that made it stale, fast.
Sea of Thieves has the potential to grow into something really good. There has already been some really good updates to it. It's just unfortunate that it is taking them a year to grow it into what people were expecting at launch.
And it's on pc ...where's the actual exclusives
PS Now... Psst, a lot of so called Sony exclusives playable on it... on PC.
@killbill Pssst...Even if steaming a game was close to the same thing which it isn't, PS4 would still have about 14 times more exclusives than Xbox...so what's your point? But thanks for playing cya, next time 👍
Whats funny af is only ONE xbox diehard in an xbox thread disagreed with you 😂😂. ONE!! LOL Sorry bruh more disagrees inbound After a few hours with the game and formed my own opinion i hit up youtube and strictly listened to die hard xbox podcasts to see what they thought. Mooch, Nxtgen720, Luca, and Rand al thor were like umm this game is garbage... and i respected them for an honest opinion and knew for a fact... their tastes in games werent blind to a piece of plastic... at least not in this particular instance.
Xbox one (((exclusives)))
They managed to find 10? I have an xbox and can only name about 2.
Ha me too. Are they in the 10?
I guess it's how you want to define exclusive. if it is Xbox One only then the list is pretty small. If you include "console Exclusives" then there is a decent list of games.
Yeah that just sounds ridiculous lol exclusive means exclusive... oh but my games are console exclusive! To everyone else with exclusive games are like... im pretty sure thats not a thing unless youre an xbox person.
@JINGER So if you change the definition of exclusive there are more games ....who would have thought. You can't play COD on my smart fridge can we call that a ps4 exclusive ?
Well a fridge isn't a console.
"Well a fridge isn't a console" Neither is a pc but you get pc exclusives .....I don't get your point? If we can change what exclusive means just to help Xbox "exclusive" numbers why not my smart fridge ? Why not my mobile phone ? Why not my calculator? AC odessey ps4 exclusive because it's not on my phone.
@Jinger That's just being unnecessarily elitist.
From the article... 10. Quantum Break 9. Ori and the Blind Forest 8. Sunset Overdrive 7. Forza Horizon 4 6. Halo 5 5. Gears 4 4. Cuphead 3. Forza Motorsport 7 2. PUBG 1. Sea of Thieves Only 5 of these do i consider "must have xb1 games" and the rest are a total snore fest. Its comical how 3 out of 5 of these must have exclusives (imo) are 3rd party games and the last two are both Forza games. Im suprised K.I. didnt make the list id def put it ahead of QB but that my op. Everything else is meh. Yes Halo 5 and Gears 4 were both underwhelming. Halo 1, 2, and 3 are a much better experience than 4 and 5. As Gears 1 and 2 are the best in the franchise. Heres hoping Gears 5 is MUCH better than 3/4. I def would not consider Sea of Thieves as the best game on the xb1... and if it was that would be pretty sad and i wonder if the person that wrote this is trolling us.
Believe it or not, but there are a decent amount of people who really enjoy Sea of Thieves still. It's got its little following. But certainly not the #1 game on Xbox.
Glad you agree, id prob say Forza is the #1 game on XB1. Would you say so as well? And FH4 is a much better game than FMS7.
I'd say my tops would be FH3&4, Ori, Cuphead, Sunset Overdrive, Gears 4, Halo 5 (MP). I'd even list State of Decay 2 over Sea of Thieves. SoD2 may have been a bit janky at launch, but it's still a fun game with plenty of content. Sea of Thieves is that game I hop into maybe once a month to check out what new stuff they added, but only because I have GamePass haha
I only count 2 exclusives on that list
Which 2? Is it because the rest are available on PC? Do you consider Nioh to be a PS4 exclusive. Do you consider The last of Us to be a PS4 exclusive? Persona 5?
@DerekTweed Sunset Overdrive and Halo 5 Yes No No No
man this list is just as lackluster as the Xbox one it self.
The link is 404 on my end :/
I know, everyone's taste is different, but ouch. That list is bad.
console exclusives you mean
Halo 5 and Sunset Overdrive are the only ones that I can't play on my PC. I miss Sunset Overdrive..I wish they would release it as crossplay so I can play my digital copy on PC.
Erm......Killer Instinct Definitive Edition missing, one of my favourite games of this gen absolutely brilliant game, sure lots of nice XB exclusives to come like ori 2/gears5/ battletoads I’m intrigued by.
Halo 5 and Gears 6 don't belong on that list both were laughably mediocre.
I think the problem is , it's hard enough to find a game that can be called exclusive on the Xbox as it is, and even then they have to change the definition of the word exclusive just to fit them in. So I would guess making this list was a trial and that's why they added them just to even reach 10.
I'm sorry but only 3 of these games are exclusives. People on both sides like to use the words console exclusive to pretend a game is an exclusive but that doesn't change the fact that it's not.
Cuphead, Ori, PUBG... Those games are on PC, not "only" on Xbox.
Real question, are these all real exclusives or can I play on my PC?
