      So, I bought a Scorpio, which arrived on Tuesday. I've not taken it out of the box yet as I don't have any games for it. What would you guys recommend as the single, most impressive game available that really showcases the machine? Preferably single player, and not a racing game as I've got that genre more than covered through VR.

      I only bought the console through habit, as I hate to think I'm missing out, lol. A bit mad really, as I rarely play many games these days. Any suggestions gratefully received :)

      Shadow of War probably one of the best, Rise of the Tomb Raider and AS Origins Also.

      Best thing I've seen on it? Star Wars Battlefront 2. - If you sub to EA Access for a few quid a month you can get a free trial. Sub for a month - play the 10 hour trial, unsub.

      Assassins creed origins is also nice if you want to pay for a full game.

      There is a Forza 7 demo - try that - even if you're not into racing it will give you a game in 4K HDR to try out.

      You got a free month of game pass with your console, maybe try Halo 5 seeing as that is free also.

      Thanks both. I'm not too fussed on Star Wars, so I'll maybe sidestep that one. Also hated the earlier AC's so I'll swerve that one too, lol. Halo 5 sounds like a plan, as I've always loved Halo. Shadow of War I shall look into, and Tomb Raider is right up my street :)

      Gears 4 looks superb and has a decent SP campaign.

      Thanks for the suggestion, but I hate the Gears series. It's all of the macho nonsense that really gets on my t!ts, lol. Much appreciated though :)

      Actually just read that the last ACO patch has messed up LODS on all systems so objects pop in and out of low detail models at too far a distance.

      Probably avoid that as a showcase at least till they fix it!

      Wolfenstein 2 is good (and gets great reviews) looks really nice, just no HDR.

      Shenmue, SEGA Dreamcast is brilliant. Though I'm not sure it'll look very good on Xbox X. :p

      You know what? I think I have Shenmue in the loft somewhere after all of these years. Damn, that was good for it's time :)

      I’m hearing great things about WolfensteinII: The New Colossus. The newest Hitman game has One X support so I’m excited to play that one myself.

      You can add Halo 5 to the list. Looks superb in 4K

      Yeah, Halo is on the cards. Decided against CoD for a while as Battlefield looked equally as good, and a lot cheaper. Online is also supposed to be solid compared to buggy as hell reports for COD. Not really an online player, but you never know :)

      So Battlefield ordered along with Tomb Raider.

      Gears 4 and Wolfenstein II look great. Going to re-buy Tombraider when I run out of stuff to play.

      :laugh: you hate all the good games, begs the question, why buy an X? :rotfl:

      Which earlier AC did you play? I hated the first one, didn’t much like the third. The rest have all been pretty good though.

      Origins looks and sounds stunning. Another vote for Tomb Raider.

      Can't remember which AC it was. All I remember was that every time I pushed the thumbstick forward the main guy went shooting up walls, and climbing poles and stuff. But it just felt completely uncontrollable, a bit like Sonic the Hedgehog. It seemed that you could almost shut your eyes, shove the stick forward, and when you opened them again, he would be 500' higher than he was, perched at the top of some tower or other. No thanks, lol :laugh: I prefer the more considered approach of games like Tomb Raider of old, where you had to discover, and scout your route if you wanted to go climbing stuff ;)

      I know it's not enhanced for X, but I'm also gonna bag Witcher 3 GOTY. Looks fantastic, and I can't find a bad word about it. Also downloaded Halo 5 last night, courtesy of the Game Pass that came with the Console. Well, during the night actually at 97gb :eek:. Gave it about an hour's play earlier, but I think I'll be claiming that particular chunk of disk space back pretty sharpish. Not really feeling the love at all.

      There’s an enhanced patch coming for Witcher 3, not sure when, but hopefully soon. Never finished it first time, so planning to restart when the patch hits.

      Witcher 3 is getting and enhanced patched, you are missing out by not playing Origins, it's so much better than the others.

      Maybe, but I think I'll wait 6 months or so until it hits the bargain bin. That way the price of disappointment will be a lot less ;)

      Don't know how much you've paid for Battlefield but as it's on your list an EA Access account for £20 for a year may have been worthwhile for you. You could then try out quite a few games over the year with the new ones being "free" in 6 months or so as well.

      ACO is nothing like precious AC's in my view...I found them a bore fest...this one is actually addictive. It's a good game that looks good too.

      Thanks for that. A bit too late, unfortunately, as I had already ordered. But I shall look into it, and bear it in mind for the future :)

      Well, I picked up Witcher 3 this morning, and it looks mighty promising. Also had Battlefield and Tomb Raider drop on the mat. Well, it is my birthday after all ;)

      I have to say that Battlefield looks great, but the star of the show is Tomb Raider. Just wow!! It looks absolutely stunning in 4k, and plays just like it should. I am one happy bunny :)

      I'm running a 4k TV with hdr and the standout games so far for me have been:

      Forza7: stick your favourite Spotify playlist on, turn in game music off and drive. I think driving in the wet with the sun trying to break through has been awesome - but then the next race will be on a sunny day and it just looks clean and fantastic.

      Battlefront 2: have played up to and including the tie fighter level. Bit unfair to compare it to the beta on the Pro, but after playing that I was a bit meh about the game. The first two levels on the X just changed my mind completely. Felt like star wars. Looks amazing.

      Honourable mentions to titanfall 2, gears 4, tomb raider, and halo 5 - probably in that order.

      And the surprise gem for me so far has been mirrors edge. A 9 year old game that looks fresh on a 65" TV gets me excited for some other classics getting fresh licks of paint.

      Unfortunately I haven't tried assassin's or the wolfenstein game which seem to be receiving decent praise.

      Assassin's Creed has been great in more ways than I would've guessed. Visually spectacular because of the fidelity and depth of the world it's created, and the gameplay is compelling. Normally I'm bored senseless by Assassin's Creed games. Oh, and Atmos too.
