Been out of gaming for a while. I did have a Wii u and have a switch but haven't had a Xbox since the og. Looking for some game suggestions. I'd like bc games that have newer games on the 1. Like I'm playing the older tomb raider and then getting the newer one after I beat the 1st. Thinking of getting just cause 3 but Don't know much about it. I like horror and action games. Also platformers. I got shadow complex today seems really fun so far. Hate turn based games and not really into fighters although I'm thinking of getting the 1st injustice cause I love the characters and my son and I could probably get some fun out it. Also any upcoming games I should keep my eyes on? Might get monster hunters if reviews are good but I've never played one and I don't have any friends with an Xbox to play with.
Thanx in advance for any help

Dark Souls

I think I'm waiting to get the first one on the switch for the portability but I'm deff looking forward to that, great suggestion. How do 2 and 3 compare if I end up liking 1?

You will love all of them. Ds2 is probably the worst of the series but still is far better than everything else regarding action rpg's. Souls series is just fantastic.

You said you like platformers right? Then Ori and the Blind Forest is perfect for you, best platformer/metrovania game i've ever played and one of the best games ever for sure. Sequel is coming soon.

Cuphead is also a really good choice for platformers, and for horror/gore Gears of War series.

You should get Dark Souls for the XBOX because the co-op/Online play will be a better experience.

The only Tomb Raider game that is BC is Underworld, which is the third game in that trilogy (Legend and Anniversary being the other two).

Current gen release=/=backwards compatible.

Oh ok. Well underworld is awesome so far if the newest one is even better I can't wait.

Ori I have heard of that game I will deff check it out. Thanx that will probably be my next purchase.
Edit: just looked up cuphead and omg that art style is so me. I'm getting that tonight lol.
I have played a little of one of the gears games and it felt really awkward but maybe I just need to get used to it. It's a third person shooter correct? Just making sure we're talking about the same game

Btw my Xbox came with forza horizon 3 with hot wheels dlc and I'm loving it. Any of the other forza games different enough to check out? Also is the blizzard mountain dlc worth the price?
