Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox, has shared his views regarding Xbox Series X games. Microsoft’s next-generation console will have a series of great games and while it lacks exclusives at launch, there are still a ton of games in development for Xbox Series X.

Of course, this doesn’t mean Xbox Series X titles won’t look, quite the opposite actually, they will stun you.

Microsoft is giving developers that freedom and tools to create the game they want, this is evident by what Obsidian is creating right now.

However, alongside big projects, the studio wanted to do something different. Hence came Grounded for Xbox One and PC, a unique co-op survival experience from the creators of The Outer Worlds.

Have you ever been just struck with complete awe with a video game’s visuals? I don’t necessarily mean being a realistic simulation but I’m referring to how detailed the imagery is. Here are a few Photorealistic games that you should definitely try out if you just want to stare at the screen and be amazed. Devil May Cry 5 The last Devil May Cry game we played excluding the reboot was DMC 4. Back then, the franchise still used very video game looking models and rendering so even though the game was stylish as hell, it did look like an old PlayStation 2 game. However, with the help of the RE Engine, Devil May Cry 5 is not only stylish from a gameplay perspective, but it’s also an absolute treat to look at. https://youtu.be/4kRwyoWRQYU In fact, it should be a crime how the game combines the most arcade-y video game-like…

Imagine the worlds of Lordran and Yharnam being dynamically-generated that changed with each playthrough, shuffling the locations of items, enemies, and even pitting you against unexpected bosses. At its core, Remnant: From the Ashes draws inspiration from FromSoftware’s lovechild with its unique flair added to the mix. You’ll still fight your way through mobs in different areas, rest at checkpoints (respawning all the enemies in the area), find better loot, and fight bosses locked behind fog-walls. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqeDvBJraMk Remnant: From the Ashes is set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by an alien species known as the Roots.
