The next entry in the Forza Horizon series is here and boy is it a doozy! Forza Horizon 5 is easily the best game in the series. The game takes place in Mexico and features a large and diverse open world with awe-inspiring weather events such as towering dust storms and intense tropical storms.

Character customization in Forza Horizon 5 is pretty impressive. Compared to previous games in the series, you now have a much more diverse cast of selectable characters to choose from. Once you choose and customize your character, the real fun begins. The Horizon Festival in Forza Horizon 5 is an amazing showcase of not only a racing event but also amazing cars.

With over 500 cars in this game, you’ll find a car from partially every corner of the globe. Every single one of the cars is replicated with such care and rendered in incredible detail on Xbox Series X. Forza Horizon 5 is without a doubt the best game in the series. It takes everything that makes games in the Forza Horizon series good and makes them 10x better.

ESRB Rating: T (Teen)

Halo Infinite has been a long time coming and launches Dec 8, 2021—just in time for the 20th anniversary. The game is composed of two parts: campaign and free-to-play multiplayer mode.

In the campaign, Master Chief confronts the most ruthless foe he has ever faced. You play as humanity’s greatest hero to experience an epic adventure and explore Halo Infinite’s expansive open-world. The story follows the events of Halo 5: Guardians, which saw Cortana use ancient Forerunner war machines called Guardians to take control of the galaxy.

The campaign opens near a damaged Halo installation known as Zeta Halo and the overarching story of Halo Infinite centres around tackling Banished forces on Zeta Halo, finding a way back to Earth, while uncovering the mystery around Cortana and The Weapon.

Halo’s celebrated multiplayer returns, reimagined and free-to-play! Seasonal updates evolve the experience over time with unique events, new modes and maps, and community-focused content.

  1. My list for best Xbox games of 2021 would be:

    Halo Infinite
    Forza Horizon 5
    Far Cry 6

    The Halo Multiplayer is awesome, I can’t wait for single player in December.

    Forza 5 is jaw dropping and continues what makes the series so great.

    Far Cry 6 because I’ve sank over 50 hours into the game and I’m nowhere near done the story. The game looks and plays fantastic and the DLC being released so far looks interesting.

    I wonder what 2022 will bring!
