Gears of War 4

Gears of War 4 is the latest entry in one of the greatest series to find its home on the Xbox. Taking place many years after the original trilogy, Gears of War 4 keeps the series familiar but fresh, with a new main cast but the old series violence. Aside from the story, the multiplayer provides a lot of fun and action. With multiplayer game modes such as Campaign Co-Op, Horde, and various death matches such as Warzone and Arms Race, gamers will have many ways to play alongside and against their friends. Gears of War 4 is one of the best games on the Xbox One, and owners of the console owe it to themselves to play this title.

Forza Horizons 3

Does your loved one like racing games? Yes? Forza Horizons 3 is another title that could claim to be the best game on the console alongside Gears of War 4. Open world racing has never come together so well in a title before, and Forza Horizon nails it in terms of soundtrack, car options, location, and the racing in general. If your giftee isn’t a big racing fan, don’t turn away from Forza Horizons 3. Personally, I am very rarely into racing games save for the odd titles here or there (Burnout, anyone?), but Forza Horizons 3 really drew me in, and I can see myself playing it for a long time.
