Best Xbox Game Pass Games

0

Xbox Game Pass is easily one of the best values in gaming, but what are the best games for it? Which titles should you focus your time on? Well the answer to that will change from person to person, as naturally people have unique tastes. But, that doesn’t mean there aren’t a group of games that Microsoft is offering in Xbox Game Pass that can’t be passed off as the best titles to check out first.

These are going to be games that are generally well-liked and in most cases, exceedingly popular with fans and critics. Xbox Game Pass also changes its lineup pretty often. So this list will change accordingly to accommodate that when games leave the library eventually.

Lastly, there’s also a huge list of games you can play if you subscribe, and these are available across multiple platforms. Such as PC, console, and cloud. This list isn’t focusing on any one platform in particular. And instead will incorporate all three methods for playing.

Tunic

  • Cost if purchased: $29.99
  • Where to play: PC, Console, Cloud

Tunic is an isometric action game where you play as a small fox who’s stranded in a ruined land. It plays a lot like Zelda but also incorporates elements of difficulty akin to souls-like titles. Though not necessarily on that scale.

If you love adventure seeking games with RPG elements, Tunic is a great throw back to those kinds of games that mix RPG and action. And despite its similarities to Zelda, Tunic is unique and has plenty of gameplay features to call its own.

As one of the newest games on Game Pass, we also feel it’s one of the best ones you can sink some time into right now.

High On Life

  • Cost if purchased: $59.99
  • Where to play: PC, Console, Cloud

Do you like Rick and Morty humor? Are you a fan of Justin Roiland’s work? If you answered yes then you will probably love High On Life. It’s an FPS game that puts you in the driver’s seat as the lone hero to save the world and humanity from being used as drugs by an alien drug cartel. Of course you have a sidekick, or rather sidekicks, to help you. An arsenal of talking guns.

If you’re a fan of Justin Roiland’s comedy, then this is a big part of where this game will shine. The talking guns. Beyond that, it just offers generally good gameplay. The $60 price tag is a hard pill to swallow. So if you plan to buy it, wait till there’s a sale. Because the game is good, but probably not worth $60. Luckily, it’s a new game on Game Pass so you can play it for free!
