Wondering what the best Xbox One adventure games are? This list ranks them all, with the help of votes from gamers like you. One of the best adventure games for Xbox One is Rise of the Tomb Raider, the follow-up to the 2013 reboot Tomb Raider that made Lara Croft relevant again. Luckily for Xbox owners, this is exclusive to the console, but will be coming to Playstation 4 eventually. Both Tomb Raider games are fantastic adventure games available on Xbox One, basically serving as the Microsoft equivalent to Playstation's Uncharted series.

Inside is an indie adventure side-scrolling game that has gotten a lot of praise recently, so definitely check that out if you were a fan of Limbo (they're made by the same developer.) Vote up the Xbox One adventure games below that you would recommend to other XBone owners, and downvote the titles you didn't really enjoy.
