Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Bagged myself a series s

Hello Xbox people, I'm a Nintendo gamer with a slice of PlayStation, but have opted to take the plunge for the current gen by buying a series S. Please may I have some recommendations to get my Xbox journey started. So far I have picked up AC Vallhalla, Gears 5, Sunset overdrive and Necromunder hired gun. I'm open to suggestions especially games that have been updated for

series X/S

Just get gamepass, great selection of games.



Wii/Mario Kart Wii Code:2793-0686-5434

Since you said you're a Nintendo gamer get Rare Replay.
The Xbox Series S has access to various Xbox and Xbox 360 titles. So if you haven't played these titles I'll recommend Metal Gear Rising, Sonic Adventure 1+2, Sonic Unleashed, Sonic Generations, Panzer Dragoon Orta, Castlevania Symphony of the Night, and some more. I also hope they add more titles.
As for Xbox One titles there's a lot, but I start by saying Resident Evil 2, Bayonetta (also can play Xbox 360 version), Vanquish (also can play Xbox 360 version), Monster Hunter World, Dragon Quest 11 S, Octopath Traveler, Nier Automatta, DOOM, DOOM Eternal, and more.



Congrats first of all. What kind of genre's do you enjoy playing? The easy thing to suggest is getting Game Pass. They currently have $1 for 3 months of Game Pass Ultimate. If you prefer buying games, check out MCC, Forza Horizon 4, Gears Tactic if you enjoy strategy games, Ori 1 and 2, Quantum Break, and a bunch of 3rd party titles have received FPS boost. You can also play plenty of great BC X360 and Xbox titles for cheap.

Here is a list of fps boosted titles you can check out. Games Featuring FPS Boost - Xbox's Major Nelson

I play a variety of genres as I like to broaden my horizons. I'm covered for JRPGs on Switch and it's my go to for indies. I got my series s to catch up on exclusive games I missed and to see multiplats running at 60fps, so thank you for the fps boost list.

As always, my number one recommendation for all new Xbox owners is to get Gamepass. The value of Gamepass is truly staggering, being able to play all 1st party games day one, most 2nd and 3rd party exclusives day one, some 3rd party multiplats day one, plus tons of somewhat older games, all for $180 a year (less if you catch good sales), and if you don't want to sub long term you can always buy single month or 3 month cards whenever a game that interests you releases.

As for more individualized recommendations, I have quite alot I could recommend across multiple Xbox generations, and many of them are on Gamepass for convenience:

  • Halo MCC and Halo 5
  • Fable 1-3
  • Forza Horizon 4
  • Sunset Overdrive (which you already got)
  • Quantum Break
  • ReCore
  • Crimson Dragon
  • Lost Odyssey
  • Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Mankind Divided
  • Dishonored 1 and 2
  • Elder Scrolls 5
  • Fallout 3, New Vegas, and 4
  • The Yakuza series
  • Nier Automata

Just to name a few excellent excellent exclusive and multiplat games that are available on Xbox which mainly haven't been available on Nintendo systems.

Nice, hopefully you get a X later on to fully enjoy next gen.
Can't wait until I get my hands on a juicy PS5 myself.



Play the Ori games if you like platformers at all, play Halo: CE (via MCC) and Halo 5 whether you like FPSs or not. You just need to experience that franchise since you're a gamer. Gears 5 is a great one too. Also play some Forza (both Motorsport and Horizon).
