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

One super underrated sci-fi game for Xbox One is Prey, an atmospheric space horror game developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda. The game is the perfect combination of shooting, horror, and storytelling, so check it out if this one flew under your radar. If you've never played DOOM, it's another must-play sci-fi game for any Xbox One owner. Other options include Titanfall 2, Halo 5: Guardians, and Fallout 4.

Not every sci-fi game on this list is an Xbox One original - take Kerbal Space Program for example, which came out in 2015. However, all these sci-fi games are currently available on the Xbox Marketplace, regardless of release date. Vote up your favorite sci-fi game for Xbox One, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide if you're looking for more titles to play.
