What to play first.

#IDARB (Xbox One) Xbox Game pass

Banjo Kazooie (Xbox 360) – The classic platformer is playable as part of the Xbox Game Pass Subscription. It was part of Rare Replay but the version included is the Xbox 360 version. It is still an excellent game that should be played by any fans of Rare or the platforming genre.

Gears of War Collection (Both) – Gears of War is one of Microsoft’s biggest IPs so it makes sense for them to include the games in the Game Pass collection. You can play the Xbox 360 versions of 1 to Judgement on Xbox One as well as the Ultimate Edition of the first game. It is a great series that everyone who hasn’t played them should experience. 

Halo 5: Guardians (Xbox One) – The fifth numbered entry in the Halo series didn’t get an overwhelmingly positive reception when it initially released but it is still a good game in a great series. It is also one of the highest profile Xbox exclusives to be included in the Game Pass collection.

Joe Danger (Xbox 360)

Bioshock Collection (Xbox 360) – The first two Bioshock games, and Bioshock Infinite, are also available but they are the Xbox 360 versions rather than the upgraded versions included in the Bioshock Collection. They are fantastic games with wonderful stories in amazing worlds and would be worth a monthly subscription fee on their own.

Borderlands (Xbox 360)

Braid (Xbox 360)

DMC: Definitive Edition (Xbox One)

Mad Max (Xbox One)

OlliOlli (Xbox One)

Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One) – Sunset Overdrive is one of the best exclusives available for the Xbox One and is can be playable for free as part of the Xbox Game Pass. The game’s style is so over the top and the gameplay is very fun. The colorful world is a joy to explore and the story is consistently funny. It is an unmissable game for Xbox One owners and you certainly shouldn’t miss out now.

The Swapper (Xbox One) – The Swapper is an excellent platformers with thoughtful, challenging puzzles and an intriguing, adult themed story that will stay with you after you’ve finished the game. It is a very unique game and one of the best indie games available on the Xbox One.

Viva Pinata (Xbox 360)

Soul Calibur (Xbox 360)
