Number Seven – Minecraft
This low key cult game is often underestimated as just an educational game, but this game is much more than that. There is more to this game tan counting and building, it also teaches architecture, geology and things like building electric circuits.
Yes Minecraft does fall into the educational category but learning about gravity and physics has never been this fun.
Number Six – Titanfall 2
This multiplayer game has significantly upped the ante with this sequel to its first game. Titanfall 2 now has a diverse single player campaign that now includes multiplayer modes and maps seamlessly making this game a highly enjoyable escape.
Number Five – Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2
Brains, braaaaaains…the call of the zombie is impossible to resist. This fun and family friendly game is a solid favourite with gamers. You have to be connected to Xbox live to play, but you don’t have to murder the real humans out there, you can murder the bots controlled by computers.
The cartoon like graphics of this game and the generally lack of serious gore makes this game a winner for the families that play together.
Number Four – Forza Horizon 3
This game is not realistic, but screw realism, who need it when you can have this much fun racing in unrealistic situations!
Forza Horizon 3 is a wonderful combination of speed and views of random places you wouldn’t be racing to in Australia. Add to this is the choice of radio stations that play your choice of tunes; it makes for a fun light hearted racing game that is extremely enjoyable.
Number Three – Destiny: The Taken King
Destiny: The Taken King is another offering that is dominating the multiplayer scene these days. This sci-fi game is set in a future world where you play guardian and protect a advance alien device from strange alien hostiles. This game has evolved from its launch and has had a few updates that make it more fun than the launch boredom that had first set in. It has death match style multiplayer modes but also cooperative random player modes that really make the Taken King stand out, and it as exciting as playing at River Belle casino.
Number Two – Halo 5: Guardians
Halo 5: Guardians is most lauded for its stunning graphics, which are highly detailed and hyper realistic. The detail in this game on Xbox One is unreal in its delivery of real looking effects and is an absolute jaw dropper to watch, and extremely action driven when playing.
Halo 5 also offers some of the best cut scenes, the character models are so realistic and detailed that gamers will be nothing but impressed. Halo 5 is worth it for sheer impressive graphics but is actually also a great game.
Number One – Overwatch
Overwatch had seven million people play it within a week of its release, immediately dominating the multiplayer scene. This fun shooter game is still at the top of the multiplayer scene, mainly due to its slick and colourful design and ease of access to players.
This game is highly addictive but that’s ok, who needs real friends when you can socialise with the other addicted multiplayers.
