Metacritic has compiled a list of the top ten games for both Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S according to aggregated ratings from critics, celebrating a fantastic selection of games that graced our consoles last year.
It's an eye-opener to an amazing selection of games, many of which we'd forgotten about. There's also a great mix of genres in the offering, from the brilliant Tetris Effect: Connected to the brutal, gory action of the DOOM Eternal. We've compiled the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S into one definitive list.
Here's the full list and their Metacritic average:
- Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age - Definitive Edition - 91
- F1 2020 - 91
- Ori and the Will of the Wisps - 90
- Yakuza 0 - 90
- Yakuza: Like a Dragon - 89
- Tetris Effect: Connected - 88
- DOOM Eternal - 88
- Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 - 88
- Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition - 87
- Huntdown - 87
The highest rated Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S game of the year was technically Tetris Effect: Connected (Yakuza: Like a Dragon scored 89 for Xbox One), while Call of the Sea was the highest rated "exclusive".
