List RulesVote up all the best Series X/S games.

If you've recently purchased an Xbox Series X (or S) and are wondering which titles you should pick up immediately, you've come to the right place. This is an ongoing poll of the best Xbox Series X games that have been released so far, as voted on by other gamers and Microsoft fanboys everywhere. As the fourth generation in the Xbox family, the Series X/S puts hardware above all else, sporting higher resolutions and better, smoother frame rates than ever before.

With more than two dozen different titles available at launch—plus tons of anticipated releases in the pipeline—there are plenty of great titles to pick up and play, but which ones are worth prioritizing over others?

Massive titles like Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate are both extremely popular games, but there is also a slew of great Xbox exclusives like Gears Tactics and the long-awaited Fable 4. Vote up all the greatest Xbox Series X games so far (including both old and new releases) up to the top of this list, and vote down all the releases that didn't live up to the hype.
