10 must-have Xbox Game Pass games on console

Xbox Game Pass has so many options that digging through its library can sometimes be overwhelming.

Here are our picks for the 10 best Xbox Game Pass games playable on console.

10. Control

From the creators of Alan Wake, Control is one of the most original action games in years, combining superpowered combat with a mind-bending sci-fi story.

9. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Taking inspiration from Dark Souls, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is perhaps the closest a game has gotten yet to making players feel like Jedi.

8. Destiny 2

Destiny 2 has had its ups and downs, but it’s in a great place after the release of the Beyond Light expansion, which is also available on Game Pass.

7. Monster Hunter: World

Monster Hunter: World is a truly massive game about taking down gigantic beasts and turning them into fashionable clothes. It’s great solo and even better in multiplayer.

6. The Dragon Age Series

The entire Dragon Age RPG series is worth playing, and it’s all available on Game Pass. The three games to date each play differently from one another, and they all have devoted fans.

5. The Mass Effect Series

The Mass Effect trilogy is considered by many to be one of the best sci-fi series in games. All three mainline RPGs and the Andromeda spin-off are available on Game Pass.

4. NieR: Automata BECOME AS GODS Edition

Nier: Automata is as fun as it is bizarre and thought-provoking, telling the story of robots left on Earth to do the dirty work for their human creators.

3. Titanfall 2

Overlooked at release, Titanfall 2 now has a devoted following, and for good reason. Its incredibly inventive campaign is one of the best is FPS history, making it popular even for players who usually avoid the genre.

2. Remnant: From the Ashes

Remnant: From the Ashes is a tough but rewarding third-person shooter that flew somewhat under the radar when it came out, but has plenty of fans still enjoying its great co-op mode.

1. Ori and the Blind Forest

This gorgeous platformer and its sequel, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, are both available on Game Pass. But beware: its somewhat cutesy appearance hides an extremely challenging game.
