Best Xbox One S Games – HDR Xbox One games

If you bought an Xbox one S you probably already know it is capable of playing HDR video games.  Not all games have this feature, so you are going to want to find the games that do have it to get the best picture.  I made a list of the best Xbox one S games below.  All of them are HDR Xbox one games.  HDR gives you a wider range of colors.  This provides darker darks and whiter whites.  It can make a huge difference in the picture quality of your video game.

All Xbox one games can be played on the S but as I stated before not all have HDR.  What you will need to get HDR video game experience is:

If you have the Xbox one S and the right HDR TV check out the games on this list and you will see how much better gaming in HDR is.  If you still only have the standard Xbox One, you can still check out these games, you just won’t have the HDR.  So let’s get to it.  Here’s my list of the best Xbox One S games.


Best Xbox One S Games

Forza Horizon 3

Best Xbox One S games

Price: $59.99

User rating: 4 out of five stars

Forza Horizons 3 is one of my favorite games on Xbox one right now.  It’s an Xbox exclusive racing game with quite a bit of content.  The map is huge and it is almost as fun driving around to the events as it is to compete in them.  It’s also has fantastic HDR support.  You can’t go wrong Forza Horizon 3 if you like racing games.


Gears of war 4

Best Xbox One S games

Price: $59.99

User rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

Another Xbox exclusive, this fantastic third person shooter features HDR support.  I’m not usually a big Fan of third person games but I love this one.  I enjoy the game play and story so much I’m willing to forget it’s not in first person.


Battlefield 1

Price: $59.99

User rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars

This First person shooter has been one of my go to games on my Xbox One S for months now.  I never really enjoyed the battlefield games until this one came out.  I just love the weapon balancing, the maps and the game play of the multiplayer.  The campaign is also extremely fun.  Add HDR and Battlefield 1 gets even better.  If you’d like to learn the tips and secrets to put you at the top of your game click here for my #1 recommended Battlefield 1 tips and strategy guide.

Sniper Ghost wars

HDR Xbox one games

Price: $59.99

User rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Sniper ghost wars is in my opinion a better game than it’s user rating shows.  It does have a few minor glitches which could account for the lower user rating.  Overall it’s a solid shooter with HDR.

Resident Evil 7

HDR Xbox one games

Price: $59.99

User rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars

Another fantastic Resident Evil game.  I’ve always been a fan of the series and this is the best one yet in my opinion.  I especially love the option to play in first person.  All the dark scenes in this horror game make good use of the HDR.

Final Fantasy 15

HDR Xbox one games

Price: $59.99

User rating: 4.9 out of 5 stars

If you are a big Fan of final fantasy games you will love this one.  Even if your new to Final Fantasy it’s still worth checking out.  The HDR really makes a big difference here.  It’s very noticeable when considering the wide range of colors in this game.  I’m not really a fan of the series at all but I still enjoyed playing it.

Best Xbox One S Games summary 

There are quite a few Xbox one that support HDR.  In my opinion HDR support is one of the best things about the Xbox One S.  The games on my list are the ones I enjoy the most with HDR.  Of course the system also up-scaled the games to near 4k resolution.  It does a descent job of it but don’t expect it to look as good as PC or even the PS4 Pro.  It’s clear the HDR is the real star here.

  • All these games look so awesome. I guess I need to get an Xbox one s now haha. Do you know if ps4 has any feature like this? Where would you recommend getting a console from for the best price?

    Battlefield and Forza are what I want most!

    Thanks for taking the time to share these games with us.

    • The PS4 does not support any HDR or 4k, however the PS4 Pro does. It’s actually much more powerful than the Xbox one S. It does have an ultra hd blue ray player though. If you want to compare features check out my post on best gaming consoles.

  • Hey, can you explain for a newbie, what is HDR? and what is an Xbox one S? is that simply the latest version? thanks

    • Hello Andy. HDR is high dynamic range. It provides a wider range of colors to your display/TV. Obviously the TV or dis play must also have the feature of HDR for it to work.
