Xbox Christmas Gift Guide 2016


Yesterday we went through our suggested Playstation games for 2016 and now it’s Xbox’s turn to get the same treatment!

Normally you need to resort to picking games from a certain genre, but even then there are a myriad of different options. The point of the guide below is to give you a range of options within different genres to pick from. It’s by no means exhaustive and only includes games that can be purchased in a store and are easily giftable, but it will give you an idea of some of the better games that released this year and help remove some of the stress in buying a gaming gift. If you feel like jumping online to skip the queues, don’t just stick to the websites of brick and mortar stores you already know. Give places like Dungeon Crawl, an Australian online games retailer, a look as they tend to have some pretty good prices.

In addition to the Xbox games below, if you’ve upgraded to a 4K TV this year have a look at the Xbox One S which supports HDR, 4K streaming and 4K Bluray playback.

Without further ado, check out Rocket Chainsaw’s suggested Xbox games for 2016!
