looks great! how do you want to handle console exclusives like Ori and IDARB?

also might include a Free-2-Play section. theres quite a bit of free games in addition to Killer Instinct. Happy Wars, World of Tanks, Neverwinter, Project Spark and upcoming Fable Legends. just a suggestion.

Console exclusives will go under the exclusive category like Titanfall and Dead Rising. What is IDARB? And did Ori have a retail release or is it XBLA only? I'm going to make an XBLA section as well.

both idarp and ori are console exclusives, but are also on the PC platform as well. Ori is digital only right now, but the Definitive Edition is coming out soon and i heard it was going to have a retail release. also, the "XBLA" theme is dead. Microsoft is just calling them digital games now.

but again, good job so far. looks good.

Nice one! I own all of those listed so far :) Screamride is also an Xbox console exclusive, pretty sure it got a retail release(developed by Frontier Developments, published by Microsoft, 360 & XOne).

Thanks I'll add Screamride in when I get working on the rest of it, hopefully this coming weekend.

I'm open to suggestions on what to put for digital releases, I know it's very vast and would like to focus on the essentials like Ori and the Blind Forest.

This is amazing work, well done. I'd love to see it cracked open just a bit more (like the aforementioned Ori and the Blind forest) to better reflect experiences that are unique/essential for the Xbox One player (say, Tomb Raider).

Definitely will be adding to it this weekend, similar in structure to the PS4 thread I made. An in-depth look at the best multiplats, arcade games, and the most anticipated upcoming games.

Alright will include, what are some must-have digital titles like Ori? If you can make a list and if anyone can contribute I'd appreciate it.

@NoirLamia777:
I'd add Child of light to Ori's list. Also, when the multi-plats go up, Garden warfare is a must. Plus, EA Access games should be denoted as it could save people some money. As for Screamride, it isn't very good. At least the Demo wasn't. Recommended games should be good ones. :)

Thanks for this :)

I'm thinking of buying the upcoming Forza 6 limited edition Xbox One.

Is it worth picking up Forza 5 (GOTY edition) or should I just skip it and go straight into Forza 6 ?
Besides that I really want an Xbox for Rare Replay and the upcoming Quantum Break.

Also interested in: Masterchief Collection, Horizon 2 and Sunset Overdrive.

@R4gn4r0k: In regards to your Forza question, I would say wait and see how it goes. If a lot of the community that are on Forza 5 move to Forza 6, you may struggle to find as many active racers online. However, if there are still people playing the last game after a while of Forza 6 being out, then I would say it is worth a look possibly.

I like Forza 5 a lot, but when the new game comes out, I am unlikely to go back to the older version apart from to play with friends who may not get Forza 6 (or may not get it for a while). I assume most of the content from 5 will be in 6 and given 6 has new weather and time elements (on top of newer cars), going back to 5 could mean less different content than what you may expect

What do you plan to do on the game(s) when you get them, for instance are you planning to race online mainly, or do the single player content (as single player only play may mean both are worth looking into just to have more to race basically)?

Battlefield 1. I promise you brother that you won't be disappointed in your purchase. I literally can't stop playing in the 3 weeks that I've owned it. Get a squad of friends and your set to enjoy endless hours of enjoyment.

What games should one play on the X Box One X?” Let's take a look at seven titles that should pique your interest in the Xbox One X, with each promising some kind of 4K resolution support.
