Xbox has had a great year of great games. And while the next-gen Xbox Series X and S are hard to get a hold of, almost all of their newest games are available on Xbox One. Also, what has had great success for Xbox is Xbox Game Pass, a game subscription service similar to Netflix, so be sure to check that out.
Xbox Game Awards Sale of 2021
Psychonauts 2 is the long-awaited sequel that was creative, fun, and completely unique. It is up for five nominations, which are game of the year, best art direction, best action/adventure, best narrative, and best game direction, all well earned. Psychonauts 2 is available to play for free with an Xbox Game Pass subscription, but it is 35% off for $38.99.
Easily the best cooperative game of the year, and maybe a couple of years, is It Takes Two. Another game with five nominations, including game of the year, best multiplayer game, and best family game, It Takes Two is wonderful for all ages and all levels of gaming experience. It is also free with the Xbox Game Pass but is on a 50% off sale for $19.99.
One of the latest entries, but one that deserves the praise is Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Up for best score and music (obviously), best action/adventure, best narrative, and innovation in accessibility, Marvel’s Guardian of the Galaxy was an absolute surprise as deserves to be considered as one of the best games of the year. It is on sale for 35% off making it $38.99.
Death’s Door isn’t one to miss out on either. While it only has one game award nomination, best independent game, Death’s Door shouldn’t be overlooked.
