2015 has been a golden year for Xbox One. Around 174 titles were released for Xbox One this year, which is almost equal to combined the number of titles released since Xbox One has been launched in 2013. As 2015 is about to say its farewell, we at Xboxed find it compulsory to take a look-back and admire the games we think made our year so great by bringing you the top 10 Xbox One games for 2015.

The debate of which game is better is totally a thing of personal perspective. However, as Dilawar and I are very unlikely to agree on stuff easily. We think we have the potential to provide you guys with a fairly unbiased collective opinion.

After few rigorous discussions of almost 13 hours and hundreds of hours of play time, we’ve finally prepared a list of top 10 Xbox One games for 2015. This is not going to be a detailed review, rather it is just a ranking with minimum synopsis, description and why the game made it to its rank. Either if you agree or not with this list, it will be wonderful if you tell us your opinion about it. Also, let us know your personal list, we’ll surely love to discuss it in the coming days.

1: Halo 5: Guardians

Release Date October 27, 2015

halo 5 top xbox game 2015

Exclusive Yes
Genre(s) First-Person Shooting
Mode(s) Single/Multi Player

Get Halo 5: Guardians cheap via Amazon

Synopsis:

There can be no worst timing possible for an alien invasion than when world’s biggest savior is missing. It is when you, a new Spartan must step up and take charge in the campaign to save the world from these ugly monsters by hunting down their Master Chief and solve the enigma which threatens much more than just this world.

Reason:

This game has the best multiplayer and campaigns at the same time. With tons of maps, advanced tactical warfare and amazing gunning mechanism in this game makes you stick to your console for ages, no matter if you play single or multiplayer. Which we at Xboxed think is the biggest achievement for a game.

2: Fallout: 4

Release Date November 10, 2015

halo 5 top xbox game 2015

Exclusive No
Genre(s) Action, Role Playing
Mode(s) Single Player

Get Fallout 4 cheap via Amazon

Synopsis:

Set in the aftermath of the 3rd world war that ended in a nuclear holocaust and made the remaining people take shelter in vaults. The story begins as our protagonist along with his family gets a pass to move to vault 111 (with better standards of living I guess). Moments later a nuclear bomb detonates nearby, making all people run for shelter in the vault including the protagonist’s family. Later it is revealed that no one made it to the vault and everyone was tricked to go into cryo sleep. Our protagonist and his family are then re-awakened by a few strangers for only a brief time in which the strangers kill the protagonist’s wife and take his child away putting him into his deep slumber again. After reawakening from his cryo tube, the protagonist vows to avenge his wife and find his child.

Reason:

The first being its music, which unknowingly plays a very important role in our perception of a scene in the game. But not that alone is enough to make it this far in the list, the other thing that distinguishes Fallout 4 from its peers is the environment it is set in, full of mystery and suspense aided by weird characters and, of course, a nice gameplay.

3: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Release Date May 19, 2015

the_withcer_3_xbox_one

Exclusive No
Genre(s) Action, Role Playing
Mode(s) Single Player

Get The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt cheap via Amazon

Synopsis:

The game takes place as a continuation to the story of The Witcher 2. Geralt, my personal favorite protagonist seeks to move on with his more personal mission of seeking the sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg his lover. However, the plot gets more and more complicated with events such as the Empire attacking kingdom of north and bunch of bloodthirsty warriors trying to assassinate our protagonist. Leaving retaliation, the only way for him to survive.

Reason:

Witcher 3, of course, has more technical warfare if compared to Fallout 4, but what it lacked is that its creators tried a bit too much to impress the audience which lead in little misguiding the players in combat and leveling system. However, the quantity and quality of this game’s content along with amazing story telling and possibly the best ending is guaranteed to give you some of the most pleasuring hours of your life.

4: Rise of the Tomb Rider

8: Ori and The Blind Forest

Release Date March 11, 2015

halo 5 top xbox game 2015

Exclusive Yes
Genre(s) Platform Adventure, Metroidvania
Mode(s) Single Player

Get Froza Motorsport 6 cheap via Amazon

Synopsis:

In this great adventure, the player joins Ori, a white guardian spirit as he jumps, fires spirit flames, solves various puzzles, and defeats enemies as he goes on his way restoring the forest.

Reason:

This game is so unique, it had to be in this list. The only thing that holds it this low in this list that it might not be very appealing to all sorts of audience. Apart from that, Ori and The Blind Forest is a masterpiece we personally couldn’t find any flaws in its visual, music, gameplay or controls. So even if Platformer is not you thing, you should definitely try out Ori and The Blind Forrest.

9: Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate

Release Date October 23, 2015

Exclusive No
Genre(s) Action-Adventure, Stealth
Mode(s) Single Player

Get Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate cheap via Amazon

Synopsis:

The player plays as twins Jacob and Evie Frye as they arrive at 1868’s London controlled by Templars while Assassin Brotherhood has been totally wiped out. Raised as Assassins to follow the creed, the twins have decided to get rid of Templars by infiltrating and uniting London’ underworld. If that seems a too difficult task then fear not because along the way you’ll receive help from figures such as Charles Dickens Charles Darwin, Alexander Graham Bell, Karl Marx, Florence Nightingale, Duleep Singh, Sergeant Frederick Abberline and Queen Victoria.

Reason:

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate sets right what was wrong with its predecessors. Shifting the focus back to stealth now it finally feels like the franchise is again about the way an assassination should actually be. Now with improved gameplay, a beautiful setup in 1880’s London and so many cool figures (mentioned in the synopsis) available for your aid, we’ll be stupid if we didn’t put Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate on our list.
