Christmas is just around the corner and if you’re scratching your head over which Xbox title to gift our little brother your boyfriend, here’s GeeksUlTD’s list of best Xbox games for Christmas 2021.
Far Cry 6
As far as open-world gameplay is concerned, Far Cry 6’s traditional model is still a good design choice despite some of the jokes surrounding the game’s release. They must be doing things right because we continue buying them.
You play as Dani Rojas, a rebel fighting to overthrow Yara’s oppressive tyrant, assembling improvised weaponry and slaying waves of goons.
Forza Horizon 5
One of the greatest racing games ever developed, Forza Horizon 5 is a crown jewel in Xbox’s exclusive line-up. Forza Motorsport 6 is the most comprehensive racing game ever developed, and it’s just going to improve like any other.
The person you’re shopping for already likely owns Hades on a PC or a Switch, but if you’re shopping for an Xbox fan, this is a fantastic Christmas gift that’s a little less expensive than some of the other titles on our list.
You take on the role of Zagreus, the offspring of the god of the dead, as you strive to flee the underworld of Greece. Hades is a roguelike, so you’ll die a lot, but it has a terrific permanent improvement system that makes it accessible for players of all skill levels to get started.
However, even though the Game Awards have largely ignored Hitman 3 when it concerns their nominations, we haven’t. Hitman 3, the third installment in IO Interactive’s World of Assassination series, builds on the success of the first two games by offering more grandiose level design and a wider variety of ways to assassinate your victims. If you’re willing to put in the time, this game is for you.
It Takes Two
It Takes Two is the ultimate in co-op gaming, making it an ideal Christmas present for gaming couples. Despite Dr. Hakim, the pelvic-thrusting therapeutic manual that’s more unpleasant than hardened glue on your fingers, the basic gameplay is unlike anything you’ve ever seen or played.
It Takes Two is a game that will keep you entertained from beginning to end, thanks to a variety of novel gaming elements and twists.
Life Is Strange: True Colors
Alex Chen is undergoing a lot right now. Honestly. Life Is Strange: True Colors is by far the most compelling and fascinating title in the renowned narrative adventure series as she’s an Empath, which means she can empathize with everyone around her, rendering her the most endearing character in the series. The title is should be your top pick if you’re purchasing it for someone who enjoys dark and slow narratives.
Lost Judgment places players in the cleats of Takayuki Yagami, a private investigator brought in to solve a tricky homicide case with a hearty dose of hilarity.
To do this, you’ll sneak around, battle criminals and school students alike, go to fighting clubs, play arcade games, and hire a detective dog who just so seems to be the prettiest virtual Shiba in the world.
Resident Evil Village
Ethan’s manic journey through Europe’s gloomy, vampire, and wolf-infested village is the premise of the Resident Evil Village.
The village felt more liberated after spending a complete game frightened of what was lurking behind the curtains. Enemies are now on edge since you’ve ambushed them with a barrage of pointless weaponry.
Cyberpunk was a disappointment last year, but at least there are other dystopian-themed games out there. For example, Scarlet Nexus, with its emphasis on psychic abilities, calls itself a “brainpunk” game.
Combatants Kasane, and Yuito two elite warriors, must fight to defend humanity from an invasion of weird creatures from the skies.
Tales of Arise
The Tales of Arise has been around for a while in the JRPG community. While connoisseurs regard it as one of the best, the franchise failed to capture the attention of the general public.
A vast and engrossing RPG, Tales of Arise, is Bandai’s strongest effort yet to challenge the current quo and keep you engaged for hours on end. The microtransactions are a pity, though.
