Letters from the Front

If you’re interested in the Xbox One X or are interested in getting into the ecosystem then its best to know what are the best games that Xbox can offer right now. These are the best Xbox One games to buy in 2019.

The Xbox One X and its subsequent consoles like the Xbox One S features some of the biggest games and often houses some of the biggest games with the best visuals you can get this side of gaming without spending a good amount of change for a gaming PC, thanks to the Xbox One X. This article pulls together all the best games in select genres, from shooters to horror, as selected by me.

MUST PLAY: Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2 is in a league all of its own, representing the best of what videogames can offer. On top of a brilliant story that spans from 1899 to 1907, it has the best visuals and gameplay the industry has ever seen. It is your duty to actually play this game and see through its completion, you won’t view videogames the same way ever again.

BEST MULTIPLAYER SHOOTER: Battlefield V

Set amidst the beginning of a World War in the year 1940, Battlefield V does little new, the collection of tweaks and brand new features like fortifications and a return to a more hardcore experience makes Battlefield V the most rich and explosive WW2 multiplayer shooter this generation. On top of a solid and addictive multiplayer, Battlefield V looks amazing on the Xbox One X.

BEST RACING GAME: Forza Horizon 4

Forza Horizon 4 delivers the ultimate racing experience. With thousands of cars and a dynamic and beautiful open world set in Britain, the game
amalgamates the finest components of its predecessors in the Horizon sub-series and brings them together into a wonderful package. FH4 is the perfect racing game.

BEST HORROR GAME: Resident Evil 2

Resident Evil has suffered a great decline in recent years, but Resident Evil 7 sent the series back to the top. Thanks to Resident Evil 7, Resident Evil 7 rekindled the magic that made the franchise so enjoyable and this magic that made the franchise so enjoyable returns in Resident Evil 2: Remake.

To call Resident Evil 2: Remake, a remake would be so disingenuous as it doesn’t seem to be a remake or a remaster but a whole brand new game that would look like it released in 2019. Thanks to Capcom building Resident Evil 2: Remake from the ground up, Resident Evil 2 sports new graphics, a new gameplay style, new bolts and screws, and much more that brings this is the definitive horror game. Capcom is the master of horror.

BEST ACTION-ADVENTURE GAME: Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V is an absolute masterpiece of a game.Nothing has come close to it since its release six years ago. Set in Los Santos, the setting for 2004’s Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Michael and the gang must rob banks to plot their own chances of survival and success. Set in a sprawling open world, Grand Theft Auto V is a masterpiece of a game and thanks to the Xbox One X, the world of Los Santos comes to life.

BEST OPEN WORLD GAME: Assassins’ Creed: Origins & Odyssey

Enhanced for 4K, both of these Assassin’s Creed titles takes the series to brand new heights, never before seen in the franchise. Both of these titles take place 400 years apart in a sprawling Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt. Both of these titles are a return to form. Don’t miss these two games.

These are my picks for the best Xbox One games by some of the genres that I enjoy. If I were to give advice to someone who wants to pick up one of these games, I would go for Red Dead Redemption. Red Dead Redemption 2 is the next step not only just for open world games but for gaming as a whole, Red Dead Redemption 2 is the future of the industry.
