Cyberpunk 2077: Ultimate Edition

While Cyberpunk 2077 was originally released in 2020, 2023 brought the Phantom Liberty expansion and its 2.0 update. This update substantially reworks multiple elements of the title, bridging the gap between expectations and reality when the title was first released. Now, Cyberpunk 2077 has an Ultimate Edition, making it easy for the uninitiated to make that jump into Night City.

Resident Evil 4

When Resident Evil 4 was first released, it was one of the best games of the franchise, year, generation, and some might even say of all time. This monumental title has been remade for the masses in 2023. With the recent resurgence of the Resident Evil franchise, there’s no better time to play Resident Evil 4.

Mortal Kombat 1

Is your Xbox gamer is a fighting game or Mortal Kombat fan? There is no better time to jump into the franchise than with Mortal Kombat 1, which takes place in a soft-rebooted universe. The Mortal Kombat games have always had a strong narrative component, but its smart DLC collaborations and simply fun gameplay make it a must-play fighting game.

Hogwarts Legacy

Hogwarts Legacy is the perfect video game to gift to the Xbox gamer in your life who may have been a Harry Potter fan for years. That being said, the magical world of Hogwarts Legacy is open to all gamers to enjoy. The game has a lot of charm, and getting lost in a castle has never been so enjoyable.

Street Fighter 6

The last game on this list is Street Fighter 6, another fighting game that exudes style and excellent gameplay. Street Fighter has been at it for years and brings a solid campaign with a great roster, fighting mechanics, and graphics. This iteration is another game in which it is a great entry point for newbies to dive in. For the Xbox gamer who likes fighting games, Street Fighter 6 will be their jam.

Xbox Series S – 1 TB (Black)

The Xbox Series S has often been mentioned as a great entry point into the current generation of gaming. Plus, that new black coating on the console makes it even nicer. If your giftee is an Xbox gamer stuck in the previous generation or is an aspiring gamer, look no further than the new Xbox Series S colorway.

Xbox Controller

You can’t play games without a controller, and we have a couple of different recommendations in this category this year. We have the Xbox Adaptive Controller, a controller designed to meet the needs of gamers with limited mobility. This controller allows for a customized experience so that all gamers can play their way. We would also recommend the Xbox Design Lab controllers which allow you to customize a controller specifically for your Xbox gamer.
