Though it was never finished, D4 is one of the most interesting games to grace the Xbox One's library. Created by the man behind Deadly Premonition, Swery65, Dark Dreams Don't Die is a bizarre episodic adventure game following a private investigator named David Young whose wife has been murdered and he wants to find out how.
This all sounds fairly boilerplate for a detective story, but David is unable to recall the memories surrounding the event but has gained the ability to travel through time when he finds certain objects. Beyond that, there's plenty of that Swery65 unique weirdness to be found like David's roommate, a woman who acts like a cat, or the spiral horn haired fashion designer Duncan and his mannequin with the exact same haircut. It's a strange game but something to definitely be experienced.
The reboot of the Tomb Raider reimagined Lara Croft as a more well-rounded and more real character than her previous incarnation. Her short shorts were replaced actual pants someone would wear to go rock climbing and spelunking, and her character was designed to look like an actual human being. Everything about the gameplay and story was improved over its predecessors with the trend continuing with the sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider. After dealing with the supernatural events and violence of the previous game, Lara now attempts to follow in her late father's footsteps.
