– Hey guys, Metal Jesus here.
Now, I'll admit that I was late to getting an Xbox One console, but the benefits of waiting is that often you can get a stack ofgames like this really cheap.
So in this video, I'm gonna share with you my entire Xbox One collection, and tell you why I think the Xbox One is a pretty decent console.
Let's take a look.
(upbeat music) Now, before we get started, I do wanna mention that I have a little over 70 Xbox One games, and I'm not gonna gothrough them one by one.
I don't wanna bore you guys, and I really just wanna highlight some of the more interesting ones, or the ones I think thatmaybe you'll care about.
And the other thing Iwanna mention is that I've only ever owned the Xbox One X, which is the most powerfulversion of the Xbox One, so that's the system that Ialways play these games on.
And one of the first gamesI had to pick up for it is of course the Rare Replay collection.
This is an amazing collection, and I think a lot ofpeople were excited about when it was announced.
And so this is a Best Of collection for the developer Rare, which has put out a ton of games on many different systemsfrom the ZX Spectrum to the original NES, allthe way up to the Xbox 360, there's 30 games in here to explore.
It's such a great collectionof classic video games, and honestly it's a really good deal.
I was able to buy thisused for less than $10.
Tons of value there, lots to explore, a lot of games to play.
A game that's been on mylist for a while to pick up on the Xbox One is Ryse Son of Rome.
A lot of people recommendedthis game to me.
So as you can see by this footage, it is a third person hack and slash game, and it was actually a launchtitle for the Xbox One all the way back in 2013.
And I gotta be honest, playing it here in 2020, I still think it lookspretty damn impressive.
In addition to the great visuals, it also has a reallyinteresting story, too.
So you are one of the Roman generals, and you're trying to fight back this attack by barbarians, and also help out the emperor.
And it just throws you intothe action right off the bat, but then it goes into alittle bit of a cut scene, and I'm not gonna spoil much to you, but essentially the gamestarts going back in time, and you start learning thebackstory of that general, and who is obviously your character, and starts filling in some of the events that led up to those opening moments.
But the combat in thegameplay field's really solid, very intuitive.
I'm not super far into this game yet, but I am loving it so far.
Another game that a lot ofpeople recommended I get when I bought the XboxOne is Sunset Overdrive.
Now, this is a game by Insomniac Games.
Now, many people at thetime, when this was released, were pretty surprisedto see Insomnia Games a fairly high profiledeveloper releasing a game exclusively for the Xbox One.
Because you see, up to this point, they were mostly known as putting out a lot of classic games on Sony's hardware.
They released Spyro aswell as Ratchet and Clank on the Playstation One andalso the Playstation Two.
So here was this brand new game released on Xbox One's brand new console, and a lot of people loved it.
This game is highly regarded.
It's loved by lots of gamers.
I know the game that Ipicked up really cheap because it's been outfor so long is Recore.
So this is an action platformer that is currently exclusiveto the Xbox One and PC.
And this is another game that had a lot of hype and interest around it when it was originally shown at E3.
But ultimately didn'treally review that well.
It got okay reviews, but it seems like people weren't really blown away by it.
Now honestly, I haven't putenough time into it yet, but I'm curious to knowwhat you guys think down in the comments.
Here's Quantum Break whichis a sci-fi action game that, when it was originally released, it was blowing people's minds with its amazing graphics and the acting, and the motion capture.
And it also just had this reallyweird and interesting plot.
But I don't know, Ithink something just felt off with this game when I played it.
I mean, I thoughtobviously it looked cool, it was really interesting to explore, but ultimately I just lost interest after a couple hours.
So I don't know, again, I would be very curious to know what you guys think.
Killer Instinct wasanother Xbox One exclusive that fighting fans werejust stoked to see.
And Microsoft did somethingkind of interesting with this is that initially it wasreleased as a free-to-play game.
So anybody could play it.
The barrier to entry onthis was absolutely zero, and people certainly loved it.
Although, at the time, people complained that it was a littlebit shallow on content, especially at launch.
And since we're talkingabout an Xbox console, well we gotta talk shooters, and I have a decent stack of 'em here, including Gears of War four and five.
Now, the funny thing is is that, while I own these games, I actually haven't hadthem in my collection.
They've been over at my buddyDrunken Master Paul's house because as soon as heheard that I had them, he had to borrow them.
He loves this series, andhe actually streamed Gears 5 on his Twitch channel.
So now that I have them back, I can start playing them as well.
I recently picked up theHalo Master Chief collection.
Now, this has been out for a while now, but it's just been something that I've been waiting for to drop in price, and I'm glad I did becausethere's a lot of stuff packed onto this disk.
It comes with Halo one, Halo two, Halo three, ODST, Reach, and Halo four.
And most of those gamesgot a graphical upgrade.
This is another one thatPaul borrowed from me, and I was watching him playit on his Twitch stream.
It's cool because in Halo one, you can switch back and forth between the original Xbox version andthe newly enhanced version so that was pretty cool.
And here are some more shooters that I picked up on the cheap, and I just kinda went out on a limb and bought random stuff that either looked interesting or again, maybe it was just so cheapthat I was able to get it for five or 10 dollars.
And the first one was Mothergunship.
So I don't know why I hadn'theard of this game before, but basically what this is, it's a rogue-like first person shooter.
And essentially what that means is is that it's all randomized, and you basically just tryto last as long as possible, earning credits to build up better weapons and just try to surviveas long as you can.
And this game gets nuts really quick.
It actually kinda remindsme a little bit of Serious Sam in how fast it is.
It's furious, it's crazy, it's good brainless shooting, I was enjoying this a lot.
I also picked upWolfenstein The Old Blood, and the reason for that is because a lot of people have beenrecommending this to me.
It's a little bitoverlooked, I'm not sure why.
I think it sold okay, but most people don'treally talk about it.
And I think the reason for that is is that it started outas downloadable content, but then it got reworked into its own standalone release.
Now, it only lasts about six hours or so, but from what I can tell, the action and the shooting in it is a little bit amped up, it's a little bit more run and gun than some of the main releases have been.
I also picked up ShadowWarrior on the Xbox One.
Now this is a reboot of aclassic first-person shooter that came out, geez, probably the late 90's.
And this is a game, again, Iknow it's been out for a while, but for whatever reason, I just never picked it up until now.
You can get this really cheap, and it's another one ofthese first person shooters where it's just all about gunning down as many people as possible.
The reason why I really likethe Shadow Warrior series is because it's very silly, and in addition to guns, you can also whip out a sword and just start hacking people apart.
So really fun, over-the-top shooter.
I'm probably gonna check outthe sequel at some point, but right now I need to play this one.
I also have a stack of, what I'm calling, I guess third-person action games, maybe open world style action games.
And I finally picked upthe Watch Dogs series, and that's a series I've been meaning to jump into for a while now, pretty much ever since Isaw the first trailer at E3.
I think probably the reason whyI didn't jump into it sooner is because a lot ofpeople were just kinda meh on the original.
But from what I've heard, the second one is the one where they really got everything right.
So both these games aresuper cheap on Xbox One.
They look like they run really well, so I'm really lookingforward to checking them out.
– Not just any alien.
(phone ringing) Oh come on, anyone else havinga problem with their phone? Oh God, oh God! (whipping sounds) – [Metal Jesus] And of course there are a bunch of Assassins Creedgames on the Xbox One, but the one I'm really looking forward to jumping back into is Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection.
So this collection hasAssassin's Creed Two which just happens to be my favorite, as well as Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, and also Revelations.
The reason why Assassin's Creed has kind of a special place in my heart is because when that game first came out, I had just visited Italy likea few years prior to that.
And so I came home and I was just missing so many of those beautiful Italian cities like Florence, Venice, and parts of Tuscany.
And Assassin's Creed two wasjust a really cool game to play 'cause it put you backinto those locations, and they looked astounding.
Here are some more third party releases, including Red Dead Redemption II, a game I played a tonof on the Xbox One X.
Looked and ran fantastic on that.
As well as a newer release there, that's the 10th anniversary edition of Bayoneta and Vanquish.
I played and beat the original Bayoneta, but Vanquish is a game that I haven't put a ton of time into, so looking forward to checking it out.
And now let's check outsome role playing games I picked up on Xbox One, including an RPG called Indivisible.
Now, this was a total blind buy, I got it really cheap and itlooked kind of interesting so I thought I would take a chance, and I was right actually.
This is not a bad game at all.
So as you can see here, it's a hybrid action RPG that was released, I guess, back in October of last year.
But again, for some reasonI never heard of it til now.
But it plays very similarto Valkyrie Profile; a game I did play a lot on my PSP.
And I have to say that I really like the hand-drawn graphics here, and also the realtimecombat is pretty intuitive so if you're looking for something a little bit different, you like Valkyrie Profile, you should definitely check this out.
Next up is a game that I had no idea was released on the Xbox One because I originally played it on the PC.
I was actually one of the backers when they crowdfunded thisgame a couple years ago, that of course as you seehere is Bard's Tale four.
And the Bard's Tale series has been around for a long time.
I originally played theoriginal Bard's Tale I think on the commoners64 back in the 80's.
So when they announcedthat they're gonna put out Bard's Tale four, I was blown away.
I was like, yes! I mean, that's a greatseries to resurrect.
And I have to say, itdoesn't play quite like anything else I've ever played before.
It is a first persongame, and then you have your characters that you can position on a 4×4 grid, and that'show you do combat as well.
So in the game itselfwhen you're exploring, you're in first person, it's kinda free roam.
But then you go into combatand then it's turn-based and on a grid.
It's very unique andactually I like it a lot.
Another RPG that I have onthe Xbox One is Victor Vran.
So this is a hack andslash dungeon crawler that's very similar to Diablo.
And I have to say it's very well made.
It's a very polished game, and I'm kinda surprised howfew people talk about it.
It's really a shame.
Now, what's cool about this game is they eventuallyreleased DLC as a tribute to the heavy metal band, Motorhead.
So in addition to the main game, there's also version ofthis that you can buy that will come with a DLCdownload code in the case that will allow you to download the Motorhead add-on for free.
And it's really cool because if you're a fan of Motorhead, well, first of all, Lemmy's in it.
He shows up, he's at the bar, he's sitting there drinking; it's really funny.
And what's even better isthat you get to play the game with Motorhead's music playing.
As well as, you're just on a different Motorhead style world so it'sa little bit more hellish.
Yeah, again, if you'rea fan of heavy metal or if you love Motorhead, youhave to check this game out.
Some more RPGs I picked upincluding Valkyria Revolution.
So this is a spin-off of theValkyria Chronicles series.
I was kinda surprised to see this released on the Xbox One by Sega, and then I did some research and it turns out it'salso released on the Vida.
Again, I had never heardof this game before, so kinda cool to check it out.
I know it's an actionRPG so should be fun.
And then we have the completeedition of Pillars of Eternity so this was originallya kick started campaign by Obsidian and it made allsorts of news at the time 'cause essentially what they were gonna do is go back to their rootsand make a classic RPG in that Icewind Dale/ Baldur's Gate style, and fans were just super excited.
Over the years, I've alsopicked up what I'm calling kind of horror/survivor horror style games and you can see them here.
The Evil Within is a game that I've been meaning to check out for a while now, especially because I knowthat Reggie has played it and enjoyed it a lot.
But for whatever reason, I just didn't pick up, so it's cool to have it on the Xbox One.
And I've definitelybeen hearing a lot about A Plague Tale on my friend's list.
I know a couple people haveplayed it, really enjoyed it.
It's a game that I think is kinda flying under the radar a little bit.
I could be wrong about that, but I'm glad I finally picked up a copy.
Here are some more randomXbox One games I picked up.
Some of these are kinda weirdand a little bit quirky, including Bridge Constructor Portal.
So this is such an interesting game.
So basically it's like a puzzle game, but it's also a bridge simulator.
Now what's cool about this game is that it takes placein a portal universe, but it has you working for GLaDOS And the developer said thatthey got to work with Valve to get all the originalartwork from Portal as well as even get the voice of GLaDOS to reprise her role in this game.
Now, I don't typically play alot of these style of games, but sometimes you're just in the mood for something new and different, and yeah, this definitely fits the bill.
And speaking of something that I normally don't play a lot of, you guys know that Idon't talk a lot about sports games on my channel, and that's 'cause I don't reallyplay a lot of sports games.
But I do love some ofthe more quirkier ones, and this is Mutant Football League, and this is a spiritual sequel, and also the same developeras the 1993 Sega Genesis game.
And I think the reason whyI like these kinda games over traditional sports games is that again, there'sjust a little bit more whimsy to it.
The thing is actually for sports games, I really just like theextreme sports style games, like SSX and Tony Hawk, and for some reason in my mind, Mutant Football League kindafalls into that category.
I definitely appreciatehow violent, silly, and just completelyover the top these are.
Next up is a shooter called Sine Mora EX, and we recently had adiscussion on my Facebook page about this game.
Somebody posted askingthe simple question, is this game good? And it was really interesting because I had kind of in my mind thought, yeah, this is a good game, but a lot of people are like, uh, is it really or doesit just have good graphics? And it kinda made me pause a little bit because I do like this game, but I also find it incrediblyfrustrating as well.
Sometimes unfairly so.
Anyways I just wannabring it up here because again, it's just a beautifulfantastic looking game.
Is it good? I don't know, you be the judge.
And then, another game thatwas highly recommended to me, people would send methis link all the time, and that of course is Shadow Tactics.
Now the reason why people would do that is because they know thatI really stealth games, especially really well-made stealth games.
And Shadow Tactics actually is something of a little bit different than I would normally play because as you can see here, it's moreof a top down tactics view, which is pretty interesting.
So as you can see bythe game's trailer here, it takes place in the Japanese Edo Period, and then you play and control Samurais.
And then you do what Samurais do; you sabotage stuff, you'll assassinate people, and you'll be sneaking around.
Thankfully there are a tonof awesome racing games, and we're gonna startwith some of these here, going into The Crew 2.
Now, I never played the original Crew, but the Crew 2 was a game I picked up and really enjoyed itbecause it's all of America.
It's kinda shrunken down, but basically you cancruise around all of America in real time.
And what's great about it is that it's not limited to just cars, you also have boats and planes, and you can swap between them on the fly.
It's a crazy concept, butthey executed it so well.
And as you can see here, thegraphics are just fantastic, and tons of variety here, so much to do and explore.
The Crew 2 is just great.
And here are even more racing games; there are some really weird ones in here, including an Xbox Oneexclusive called Screamride.
So this game is kinda weird because, as you can see by this footage, you're on a roller coaster, but it's also, how do I describe this? It's not really a racing game, perse, but you do control the acceleration as well as the tilt of your vehicle that's on the tracks there.
As well as you can control boost so when you drive over thoseblue sections right there, you then have to hit X to time it to build up turbo at the top there.
And essentially what you're trying to do is get the maximum amount of screams out of the people inthe vehicle as possible without crashing or falling over the side.
It's a really weird concept, it's a very cheap game andit only came out on Xbox One, so if you're interested in this, and playing something a littlebit different, check it out.
And speaking of somethinga little different, this is another game thatwas highly recommended to me, and at first, I was like what? But it's Crayola Scoot, and as you can see, it is unlike anything on this list.
It actually reminds me more of, say, the Tony Hawk gamesand how they perform in the controls and also the tricks.
But then it has this element which is very similar to Splatoon in that the color of your crayonwill give you boost.
And so that's actuallywhat's going on here.
A surprisingly deep and fun game, controls really well, it's actually way better than you would expect.
And speaking of games that are way better than you might suspect, this is a game called Onrush.
This is a fantastic game that is actually technically the sixth game in the MotorStorm series.
It's just that for whatever reason, they couldn't use the MotorStorm title.
They used this Onrush name, which I think probably contributes to the fact that nobody reallyknows about this game, unless you were really paying attention to when it was released.
So yeah, basically thisis MotorStorm in its DNA, especially in how the vehicles handle, and also how the tracks are designed, but then they mix in a little bit of what feels like road rage from Burnout.
And what makes this game different than almost every other racinggame that you might've played is that this game doesn't care about getting over the finish line first.
It doesn't matter at all.
Actually it's all aboutbuilding your boost, maintaining that, and thenbuilding up your team score.
It's a shame that more peopledon't know about this game.
If you love arcade racing games, well, I hate to throw aroundthe term “hidden gem” loosely, but I think this is definitely one of 'em.
(upbeat music) Here is Forza 5 and I'm not gonna really talk much aboutthis 'cause obviously these games are very popular.
Microsoft owns the studiothat puts these out, and they're fantastic, really well-made games.
Obviously if you like Forza, you like realistic driving Sims, you're gonna love this one.
I recently picked upMicroMachines World Series simply because I just found it in a store and it was really cheap.
Hadn't played a MicroMachinesgame in a while, and this is a really fun one.
It's classic MicroMachines, top down view.
The trick to these games isalways learning the track because you can't seevery far ahead of you.
So the more familiar with the track, the better you'll do.
Plus it's got somearena-style battle modes there that are pretty fun, so you know, it was cool to get a newversion of MicroMachines.
And speaking of old games brought anew, here is Carmageddon Max Damage, another game I picked upactually on the same day as MicroMachines.
And this one I'm not loving as much.
I haven't played aCarmageddon game in a while, and I feel like this one is not great.
The Carmageddon games are all about creating havoc and destructionwhile you're driving.
They're completely over-the-top violent, they're non-PC, I meanyou're running down people who are in walkers and wheelchairs, but that's part of the gig.
And I think for me really though, it just doesn't have a lot ofexcitement for some reason.
I didn't love it, I thinkit's just an okay game.
Wreckfest I've talked about before.
It's a Bugbear game whichalso made the Flat Out series, and it is really fun.
It rides the line of simulationand arcade very well.
I would say this is actually one of the more enjoyable flat-out style games that they've made.
I just think it's fantastic, I think it's silly, it controls well, it feels well, the physics are awesome, it's definitely a really cool game.
If you remember back to a pickups video I did with Reggie a couple months ago, he reminded me and got me in the mood to replay some of the Tomb Raider games, the newer ones that have come out.
And so I decided to pickup all three of them on the Xbox One, simply justas an excuse to replay them.
I loved them previously, so Ithought it might be kinda fun to go for the achievements.
All right guys, well that's a quick look at my Xbox One game collection, and I would love to knowdown in the comments if you have an Xbox one.
Do you like it? Do you have games for it, and which ones would you recommend for me? Love to know down in the comments.
All right guys, thank youvery much for watching, thank you for subscribing, and take care.
