Xbox consoles are an amazing solution for hardcore gamers who don’t want to spend a ton of cash on a modern PC. The consoles were created to run all of the latest games, and are even compatible with older titles. Not only that, but GamePass is a really sweet deal that gives you access to tons of popular AAA games on both PC and Xbox. So, let’s see what the top 5 games you should play on Xbox are.
Four Kings Casino & Slots
Did you know that almost a third of the global population gambles or gambles at least once? This indicates that casino entertainment like slots and card games is immensely popular. Since you have a web browser on Xbox you can easily try some of the best online casinos that are available in your region. But if you want a more gamified experience that is crafted for console players then you should try Four Kings Casino & Slots.
Here you get to play in a luxurious virtual casino, create your own character and even socialize with other players. The game is completely free and if you wish you can purchase extra currency or chips on the Xbox shop.
For those who enjoy poker, Prominence Poker is going to look spectacular. You can play against AI or against your friends in a private room. This is another ideal solution for those who want to play poker but do not want to use real money as stakes. The graphics are neat, and the whole poker table setup looks very luxurious, so you will feel like in an actual casino.
Of course, there wasn’t much hype about this particular title, and it was never meant to be a major competitor in the gaming world. However, during the COVID Pandemic, the gambling sector saw a surge in user engagement. At this time Prominence Poker also saw an increase in its player base. It’s probably the best game out there for those who wish to organize virtual poker nights.
Elden Ring is one of the more recently released games that became an instant hit. This is a title that was developed by FromSoftware, and it does look like another instalment in the Souls series. Some might argue that it is the hardest souls game, but at the same time, it is the most accessible one.
Dark Souls games are known for their difficult and punishing boss fights, and bosses in Elden Ring are really tricky to overcome. Luckily, players have more tools like summons, and the ability to level up in different areas before they are ready to face the big bad. If you explore and grind enough you will easily boost your character, their gear, and their healing flask to the point where the boss fight becomes trivial.
The Witcher 3
One thing that the majority of players will agree on is that Witcher 3 is the game of the decade (2010-2020). It’s going to be difficult to top this experience, and developers are aware of it. Even now, the remastered version of the game is in the works, and players won’t mind playing through it again. Other websites that review or rank video games almost always mention Witcher 3 on their list. The story is great, the graphics are amazing for 2015 standards, and you have a lot of freedom when customizing and progressing Geralt.
There were some teasers about Witcher 4, and we are all eagerly expecting additional news about the game. That being said, we won’t likely get anything meaningful any time soon. So far, everyone is speculating that you won’t be playing as Geralt, but rather as your own custom witcher. An interesting direction, and it could end up being amazing.
This is a narrative-driven RPG game that is all about telling an amazing story and using dialog in a different way. You need to unravel the mystery of the murder and the mystery of who you are or who you were.
You can die if your health drops down to 0 or if your morale drops down to 0. This way, you need to be careful about your dialog option and skill checks. You might escalate the conversation into a conflict or learn things you just can’t stomach. It’s really brilliant and gripping. If you hate reading, then play the latest edition where entire dialogs are voice-acted.
These were some of the top games you should play on your Xbox, but there are many other titles that are just as good. Red Dead Redemption 2, Forza, and even new Resident Evil games. Of course, it’s impossible to create a list that will fit everyone’s taste, as there are many game genres out there.
