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

One of the newest Xbox One games that has you exploring the cosmos is Destiny 2. Released in 2017, the newest installment in the Destiny series is both addicting and has great replay value. If you've never played No Man's Sky, it's a must-play space game for any Xbox One owner. Other options include Elite: Dangerous, Prey, and Star Trek Online.

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