Forza Horizon 4 utilizes the Xbox One's potential to the fullest and delivers exceptional graphical fidelity and puts your driving skills to the test. Unlike most other recent driving games that require you to follow the track rules and keep your car in pristine condition, even at end of the race, Forza Horizon 4 lets players get down and dirty while blazing away to victory.


Control Amazon

From the developers behind Quantum Break, Remedy Entertainment's Control is an action-adventure video game. In Control, players take on the role of the protagonist who discovers that a Government agency is involved in the research and pursuit of controlling paranormal activities. The team at Remedy Entertainment has done a tremendous job in creating a mind-bending story that goes fantastically well with the gameplay elements of Control.

Halo 5: Guardians

If there's a franchise that has defined Xbox, it is the Halo franchise. And Halo 5: Guardians is a worthy addition to the popular series. The game offers both single-player and multiplayer modes. While we weren't quite impressed with the single-player mode, the multiplayer is indeed a blast. If your loved one usually plays games online, Halo 5: Guardians is a great gifting choice.

Red Dead Redemption 2
