The Best Xbox One Action Games

Updated September 13, 2019 424 votes 38 voters28 items

List RulesVote up the Xbox One games that satisfy your craving for action.

When it comes to good action games for Xbox One, there is a pretty good amount of variety. For that reason, we're ranking the best Xbox One action games, with the help of your votes. 

One of the most action-packed Xbox One games is Assassin's Creed Origins. Released in late 2017, the tenth installment in the Assassin's Creed series is easily one of the best. If you never played Sea Of Thieves, it's a must-play action game for any Xbox One owner. Other options include Fallout 4, Far Cry 5, and Mafia III.

Not every action game on this list is an Xbox One original - take Grand Theft Auto V for example, which came out in 2013. However, all these action games are currently available on the Xbox Marketplace, regardless of release date. Vote up your favorite action game for Xbox One, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide if you're looking for more titles to play.
