Forums - Microsoft Discussion - GamrConnect Xbox One Recommendation Thread

Hey there folks, and welcome to The Xbox One Recommendation Thread. This is a thread made for the Xbox Community by the Xbox Community. Pretty much, it's a time saver for anyone looking for that next great Xbox One game to play and enjoy. The users here are some of the most dedicated and sprited gamers I know, so of course the best way to find Xbox's best game was through the community's experiences and playtime.

Every so often I'll be doing my best to go through and update this thread, whether that be adding new games or adding a new feature. What you can do is, well... recommend the games! If there's a game you don't see on the post that you love, give me a holler and I'll do my best to make sure it has the chance to be loved by someone else.

You'll see that there are no lists here or countdown's here. The Xbox One Reccomendtion Thread doesn't think that a game's score has the final say on how much fan one can have with a game, so every game is placed alphabetically (Although I do believe that a score of 70, between MetaCritic and GameRankings, is a good cutoff for what games make it on this thread).

Well that took longer than expected.

Anyways, thread is up. Hopefully this can help Xbox One owners find their next awesome game to play.

If I've left anything else, let me know. Xbox One gets little review focus for multiplats (especially indies), so I could definitely be forgetting a few games!

Nice thread, tagging.
