It's time for another round of Pick One! This week, to celebrate the start of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, we thought we'd take a look at the short history of official Olympics games that have released for Xbox over the years.
The most recent, of course, is the game of Tokyo 2020, which is free to try with Xbox Free Play Days this weekend, and there have actually only been two other official Olympics titles on Xbox, with Athens 2004 being a PS2 console exclusive, and the 2016 Olympics not getting an official game at all (outside of the Mario & Sonic series).
Remember, you can only pick one!
Let's take a look at what we're working with:
Appearing on next gen consoles and PC for the first time, Beijing 2008 delivers an entertaining and immersive Olympic experience.
