The Bards Tale ArpgSource: Microsoft

The Bard's Tale: ARPG is a top-down adventure that is regarded as a cult classic by many. It originally came out roughly 20 years ago and was loved by gamers for its incredible voice acting and hilarious story. Even the beginning of the quest breaks the fourth wall and introduces you to a lot of quirky characters.

The Bard's Tale: ARPG costs $20, but it's also part of Xbox Game Pass. You can download it on your console right now, but if you decide to discontinue Xbox Game Pass, you can always buy it for the discounted price of $15 before your subscription expires.

According to the Microsoft Store, The Bard's Tale: ARPG runs at 4K resolution on Xbox One X. We've been playing it for a few hours and it runs at 60 frames per second. While the visuals are basic given the age of the original, it's a smooth and responsive experience.
