Best Xbox One Games Of All Time: Top 25 Titles That You Should Grab Today

From Cuphead to Sunset Overdrive, the Xbox One’s library has a staggering number of excellent games.


While the Xbox One is no longer in the spotlight due to the Xbox Series X|S, it's still quite relevant. Most Xbox games still release on Xbox One as well as Xbox Series X. Even Microsoft's biggest exclusive of 2021, Halo Infinite, will appear on Xbox One when it releases on December 8. Still, it's a good time to look back on the experiences that defined the Xbox One’s remarkable run. While the Xbox One is a tad light on exclusives, the library is still filled with a wonderful assortment of games that will stick with us for a while. Nearly every Xbox One game works on Xbox Series X--and some even have enhancements--so Series X owners should check out some of the gems from the last console generation while they wait for new experiences. With that in mind, we've rounded up the 25 best Xbox One games of all time--in alphabetical order, not ranked.

From early hits such as Grand Theft Auto 5 and Sunset Overdrive to recent darlings like Hitman 3 and Yakuza: Like a Dragon, our list hopefully has something for everyone. Some of these games--such as the first-party Microsoft titles--are even available to play for free if you subscribe to Xbox Game Pass. For those who have upgraded to Xbox Series X|S, see our recommendations for the best Xbox Series X games so far. If you also happen to own other consoles, make sure to take a peek at our picks for the best Nintendo Switch games and best PS4 games. Xbox One users should also look at our roundup of the best games to play with an Xbox Game Pass subscription. If you don't already have Game Pass, keep in mind new subscribers can get their first month of Ultimate for $1.
