With the constant rise of the PC and its gaming powers, consoles have sometimes been put in a secondary position in gaming. But fortunately, the mighty console never let go and continued to perform as gamers would expect from such a fury machine. Even in the golden era of the personal computer, this device can never be outperformed by a calculator.
What makes the console versus PC battle so unique and serious is releasing the games on both gadgets, thus letting the gamer decide which one they’re most comfortable to play on. It’s not a battle of performance anymore, but of taste, style, fingers management (yes we heard it too!) and personal choice. If you do choose the console, the benefits are greater.
Why Play On A Console
Why is it that a gaming console is far superior to a personal computer? If it’s not obvious, here are some things to keep in mind. One, the gaming console is just that, a device made specifically for gaming, such as the Xbox, does just that, runs games at the best quality possible. On PCs, you can do many other tasks, as it is natural to have broader use.
Two, consoles let you play your favourite games on the largest screen in your home. If you’ve got a 2-meter TV in your living room, you can play your top games on it. This makes the entire experience so much more immersive, and real. Three, gaming consoles are now the first to get the best games before they reach the PC. Just a few years back, the situation was the opposite.

This is one unique, unpredictable and emotional journey, no doubt there!

This is how the game was thought beforehand by the producers of the title. Vincent and Leo are ready to go and escape their prison term.

Either good and helpful for your folks, or a pirate and evil to those who cross your path.
The Sims 4 - Many gamers lived for years under the impression that some games are just for the PC. However imaginative they'd be, they just could not see a few titles transported to a machine such as the Xbox. Well, they were very wrong! The Sims 4, one of the most popular PC games ever made, has now made it to the console, and in a big way.

As the mission goes, they have to take over the ctOS 2.0, the most invasive system in the world. The OS has been taken over by criminal minds, who are now controlling the population by monitoring their every move and taking a stand on what they can and cannot do.

FIFA 21 - Out of all of the games out there that are made for consoles now more than for the PC, FIFA and its series has to be one of the most important.

It's the closest you'll get to a field without putting on shoes.
Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag - This fourth instalment of Assassin's Creed is not new. It was released years ago but still, according to the statistics from Xbox (and our own Egaming ones) the "Black Flag" title of the series is one of the most famous even today. In this game, you play the role of a good-intended assassin, roaming the streets of the ancient city and taking down pirates from where they don't belong. Or helping them if your own life is on the line. Befriend the devil until you pass the river, as they say. With superb graphics and mechanics, Black Flag is a joy for the eyes and hands.
Forza Horizon 4 - The main reason why this out of all racing games makes it on this list is the realism you can only experience on the latest Xbox consoles. The game literally puts you in the driver's seat of a racing car, which goes as fast as they'd go in real life. You get behind the wheel and can freely explore the majestic beauty of historical parts of Britain, all while you drive one of the many hundreds of cars, the best ones ever made. The racer is displayed in perfect 4K Ultra HD format, ready for all of the high-end television sets that can replay the settings for the incredible native graphics, all at 60 frames per second. The image looks and feels real, and the more you play, the more your eyes will adjust to it.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War - One unique Call of Duty, which runs as smooth as it can run on an Xbox machine, Cold War is that ultimate experience that the Black Ops series can bring. It even has zombies, a singular and unique addition to any CoD title. As far as the story goes, you will be put in the middle of the battle for power and geopolitical turmoil, set in the beginning of the 1980s. First impressions don't matter here, as nothing is what it looks like in the first place. In the main campaign game, you are all alone and on your own, and have to figure things out as you go by.
