#10 Sunset Overdrive
  • Developer: Insomniac Games
  • Publisher: Microsoft Studios

Sunset Overdrive is a vibrant and colorful third-person action-adventure title. In the game, players are tossed into the not so distant future of 2027 where the world has become a dystopia in control by mutants. Within the game you take the role of a FizzCo employee who is tasked with cleaning up the mess in the city after the launch of a new energy drink developed by the mutants.

There is a big focus on speed and parkour movements as you battle against enemies while traversing the city. Currently there is no word of a sequel in the works. Instead, the developers have expressed an interest in crafting Sunset Overdrive 2 though they would require a new publisher. Furthermore, the game has not made its way onto the Windows 10 platform which is also something the development team would be interested in but so far the ball is in Microsoft’s court on if we’ll see the game release on the PC platform.

#9 Gears of War 4
  • Developer: The Coalition
  • Publisher: Microsoft Studios

The Gears of War franchise has been popular since it first debuted on the Xbox 360. Years later the game series received its fourth main installment that followed years after the events of Gears of War 3.

Players this time around took control of J.D. Fenix, the son of Marcus Fenix, who is a member of the COG army. With the world out of fossil fuels and new terrors lurk outside of city sanctuaries, COG must continue to keep humanity safe. However, new rebellious groups seeks a world that is rid of the COG reign.

#7 Halo 5: Guardians
  • Developer: 343 Industries
  • Publisher: Microsoft Studios

Halo 5: Guardians is currently the latest main installment to the Halo franchise. Under the new development team, 343 Industries, fans of the franchise was given a slightly different take to a Halo game. Instead of the main focus being Master Chief, players were split between our beloved hero and a new team of Spartan’s.

It seemed that Master Chief had suddenly gone rogue leaving a new team to track and discover what is going on with the famed supersoldier. There was also some slight changes to the gameplay mechanics and while this title was received with positive reviews, the game wasn’t the most welcomed installment of the series for longtime fans. Regardless, it’s one title that you can’t pass up if you enjoyed the past video game installments. If you haven’t enjoyed the last few video game installments then that leads us to our next point below.

#6 Halo: The Master Chief Collection
  • Developer: 343 Industries
  • Publisher: Microsoft Studios

Bungie really created a hit when they first released Halo: Combat Evolved. With the game franchise under the care of 343 Industries we had received a remastered collection known as Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

In this collection, players will receive Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and lastly Halo 4 where players will once again fight back against the alien threat towards humanity. This collection just barely tops Halo 5: Guardians and really it’s a compilation game you should have in your collection as it contains really everything you need in order to jump into the latest main installment available for the series.
