Just got a series x yesterday. Any recommendations?
If you’re just looking to show off your Series X’s power, most of what you want is on Gamepass:
Forza Horizon 4 and 5 look stunning.
Games like Riftbreaker (especially late game) really show off the power, animating thousands of enemies attacking your base, you can even see the bullets fire from the tiny defensive drones launched from your drone towers, all while 3 dozen other towers blaze away.
Older games with upgrades, like Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, look mind blowing. Water in relation to ambient sunshine (or lack thereof) and weather effects can almost disorient you with how different they are. I know this one isn’t on Gamepass but it’s the best example of a One game with the most startling upgrades.
Both Subnauticas look great.
Guardians if the Galaxy: in for the stunning looks.
Just talking the sale:
Immortals: Fenyx Rising for $15 is great (just the base game, all the season pass stuff is laughably bad, if you buy it anyway, you were warned).
CODE VEIN Deluxe for $16 is a steal if you like action games with the JRPG aesthetic.
Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate + Injustice 2 Legendary Edition for $25 is actually a great deal, both games look amazing on the Series X, are competent fighting games, and have great story campaigns even if you don’t much like fighting games. Plus the original back compat Injustice: Gods Among Us is only $1.25 right now, so you can get that part of the story too.
Doom Eternal looks great, not sure that’s the best price though.
Possible picks that I’ve not tried:
