There are now thousands of games available for the Xbox One and choosing between them can be a tricky task. Hopefully, this list of the top 5 Xbox one games makes it easy for you.

1. Red Dead Redemption 2

Although Red Dead Redemption 2 starts slow the amount of depth and variety in mission types will soon be hooked to its gameplay. It is also very bulky so make sure you put aside a whole lot of time to finish it.

2. Gears 5

The fifth installment in the Gears of War series is a hell of a game that adds open-world elements for the first time. It also puts you in the oversized COG shoes of Kait. A game deserving of a spot on this top 5 Xbox one games list!

3. Borderlands 3

Gearbox has created the best Borderlands yet. It feels very familiar to the others in the series. which is to its benefit as that makes it easy to launch straight into, but there is enough new and improved to sate the appetites of fans and newcomers alike on the Xbox one.

4. The Outer Worlds

If you’re a fan of action RPGs and crave some proper Fallout-style action that’s distilled to its proper essence – i.e. with none of that building nonsense or other extraneous elements – then you’ll love The Outer Worlds.

5. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Along with the superb single-player campaign and Special Ops, COD: Modern Warfare all adds up to a mighty fine package. If there was a suspicion in recent years that the Call of Duty franchise was beginning to creak under the strain of its annual nature.

Here are some more games which didn’t make the cut on this top 5 Xbox one games list but are fun to play:

1 Rocket League

2 Brawlhalla

3 Vigor

4 Call of Duty: Warzone
