Xbox One has hundreds of games worth playing, extending all the way back to when the console was launched in 2013, also incorporating dozens of games from the Xbox 360 and OG Xbox era. Here are nine games we've picked out from the entire library that have slipped out of the limelight over time but are still worth a look in 2019. An added bonus, the fact they're older means they're often a lot cheaper!

More for the backlog

If there's just one slightly older game from this list worth playing, it's The Witcher 3. With gorgeous visuals, reactive, bloody combat, some of the best character acting and writing in the business, and hundreds of hours of gameplay, The Witcher 3 is a must-buy title for any Xbox owner.

If you're looking for a game to really get your teeth sunk into, it's Monster Hunter World. Be forewarned, this is a title more for fans of challenging games. Like The Witcher 3, Monster Hunter World is vastly expanded with its post-launch DLC, named Iceborne, ushering in hundreds of potential hours of playtime. As its name suggests, Monster Hunter World is a game all about fighting gigantic invasive monsters, threatening the balance of the local ecosystem. As part of the Research Commission, your job is to track, analyze, and ultimately cull or capture the gigantic beasties, in teams of up to four. Monster Hunter World is an incredible title and Capcom's most successful to date.
