Persona 5 Royal

Platform: Xbox Series X|S
Developer: P-Studio
Publisher: Atlus USA
Genre: Role-playing
Modes: Single-player
ESRB Rating: M (Mature 17+)

Persona 5 Royal is an evolution of a near-perfect game and turns it on its head by adding everything you may not even know you needed. It’s almost like taking a masterpiece and—with a few swift brush strokes—adding a whole new layer of complexity. All this while keeping its original brilliance intact.

The result is something familiar, yet somehow also entirely new. Here are a few of the things that make Persona 5 Royal so special. It’s the perfect balance of story, student life simulator, and epic turn-based fantasy battles. With every turn Persona 5 Royal expands on the original in new ways.

Despite being a mammoth-sized RPG to begin with, Royal still somehow manages to incorporate new and exciting features all along the way. It’s never boring, even when replaying the core of the game again—and not for the first time, either. If you’ve never had the pleasure of playing the original, then this game should be at the top of your list of games to tackle. Those who have should be equally as excited to discover everything that Royal has in store.

Developer: Arkane Studios
Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
Genre: First-person shooter
Modes: Single, multiplayer
ESRB Rating: M (Mature 17+)

Former PlayStation exclusive Deathloop makes it way on to Xbox Series X|S from Arkane Studios. Deathloop is the developer’s latest foray into the “shoot em’ up” action, using lessons from the past to create a stellar, mind-bending experience. Everything about the game is expertly crafted, from the gameplay, storytelling to time looping.

In Deathloop’s main story you play as Cole Vahn, an assassin stuck in an infinite time loop on a mysterious island. To stop the cycle, Cole must eliminate eight targets called “Visionaries” before the clock strikes midnight. If one is left alive, or Cole is killed, the entire day “resets” and it starts all over again.

Deathloop offers a unique approach to the FPS genre and the gameplay is silky smooth letting you interact with Arkane’s dazzling universe in fun and engaging ways. Deathloop brings together so many mechanics that wouldn’t usually mix is a true testament to developer’s pedigree and skill. Breakaway from the usual FPS fare and step into the loop, you’ll be glad you did!

  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!
