Attending E3 this week, was all about seeing what the new consoles had to offer with the Xbox One at the top of my list. Now we have heard all the bad press and negativity surrounding the Xbox One most of which is blown way out of proportion. So letís just ignore that for now and focus on the Top 5 First Party Xbox One brand games that I saw at E3 and anticipate the most. Am I looking forward to more than these 5 titles? Absolutely. But these are the titles that make my personal Top 5. Everyone will have a different list for sure. Check out my 5 below.
5. Halo Xbox One
Not a whole lot of details were revealed about the upcoming Halo title on Xbox One. What we do know is that the title is set to makes its debut in 2014 and by the looks of the trailer it looks like it will harness the full power of the Xbox One. For those that have not seen the trailer I have included it below as you can never get tired of seeing the reveal.
4. Sunset Overdrive
This title, developed by Insomniac Games, shows off an interesting mixture of parkour and the shooter genre. Over the top weapons, lots of scary creatures and plenty of online multiplayer interaction are on tap for Xbox One gamers. Again, not very much information is revealed but we will definitely have all kinds of information as it becomes available. For now check out the trailer below.
3. Project Spark
For those of you that enjoy Little Big Planet you need to check out this Xbox One title. Project Spark puts the power of easy programming and creation in your hands. The game offers up the ability to create your own living worlds, characters and games to share with the world. Everything from the terrain to gameplay mechanics are one, two and three clicks away from reality. We had a chance to go hands on with the game so stay tuned for the preview. For now, here is a trailer to enjoy.
2. Forza Motorsport 5
Turn 10 is ready to deliver the most realistic driving experience to date for the franchise. The attention to detail is unbelievable and after some hands on time I can tell you that the simulation factor is still set at a high bar. Drivatar was announced as well as the inclusion of open wheel race cars this year. Forza is once again set to rule the asphalt with their latest creation. And it looks stunning.
1. Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare
Ok, so there are some other games that are launching on the Xbox One that definitely should be on this list like Ryse, Quantum Break, Dead Island 3. But I have to include Popcapís strategy shooter because the trailer itself is full of awesome. Rather than use the standard Plants vs Zombies formula we are used to, Popcap is now taking on the shooting genre but using the characters and world we have come to know and love. The following trailer is so good. You gotta watch it!
