When Microsoft “generously” brought Halo: The Master Chief Collection to PC, many fans of exclusive Xbox games dreamed of their games.
The day of Halo: The Master Chief Collection coming out on Steam is approaching, marking the return of this legendary FPS game series on PC since Halo 2 in 2007. Surely PC gamers have been looking forward to this day for a long time. To enjoy the most classic Halo versions. Microsoft has shown that they are investing heavily in the PC platform, so we have the right to expect more Xbox games on the PC. Besides Halo, many other Xbox exclusive titles are extremely qualified and worth to be on the PC.
Here we will look at other Xbox exclusive games that fans are eager to port to PC, the list will include games from the first Xbox generation to the current Xbox One, and they are all released exclusively for Xbox.
Halo 5: Guardians
It is a pity that this landfall of Halo on PC will not be complete without Halo 5: Guardians. Rated as the weakest and most controversial version of the Halo series, but overall, Halo 5 is still an extremely quality game and well worth a try. Halo 5 certainly has a firm foothold in the legendary Halo series with the short but not bad campaign and the well-invested multiplayer section. Hopefully, in the future, Microsoft will still consider Halo 5 on PC, especially when Halo Infinite also intends to set foot on the PC when officially launched.
Gears of War 2, 3 and Judgment
Besides Halo, Gears of War is also a game line contributing significantly to the previous Xbox 360. Simultaneously, this game series also revolutionized the third-person shooter with a hiding mechanism and changed the cover. PC gamers themselves have also experienced part 1 of Gears of War, recently Gears of War Ultimate Edition, Gears of War 4 and Gears 5, and set foot on PC, especially Gears five on Steam. But for Gears of War fans, the first three games are true legends. So parts 2 and 3 also need to be quickly loaded onto a PC. Though considered to be the weakest, Gears of War Judgment is still an excellent game to play. It also needs to be on the PC for gamers to enjoy the whole game series thoroughly.
Perfect Dark Zero
As the sequel to the legendary Perfect Dark FPS game on Nintendo 64, Perfect Dark Zero is somewhat disappointing when it does not achieve the perfect professional evaluation as part 1 and many mixed opinions. But Perfect Dark Zero is still worth playing with its eye-catching graphics so far. The action-packed campaign with 14 missions with co-op and multiplayer 32 players is equally attractive. Perhaps PC gamers should also enjoy the Perfect Dark version that has been remastered and ported to Xbox 360 before.
In an attempt to enter the JRPG market and compete with PlayStation’s Final Fantasy, Microsoft teamed up with Final Fantasy’s father, Hironobu Sakaguchi, to create a Japanese role-playing game. As a result, Lost Odyssey was born and achieved individual success for Xbox 360 in Japan. Possessing impressive graphics and nostalgic gameplay design and mechanics, this is a game worth checking out, especially for Final Fantasy fans. It’s a pity that Microsoft did not expand this brand further.
Ninja Gaiden and Ninja Gaiden II
With part 1 released on Xbox and part 2 on Xbox 360, the Ninja Gaiden series is considered the pinnacle of the cutting-edge game genre, comparable to legends like Onimusha, Devil May Cry, or God of War on PlayStation. PS3 users are somewhat fortunate with the Ninja Gaiden Sigma 1 and 2 game versions reserved for this system. However, the fans both recognize the two originals on the new Xbox as true Ninja Gaiden with the first scene of bloodshed everywhere without being a censor and a too high level of difficulty that challenges every gamer. That is probably what PC gamers want more. With Team Ninja developer and Koei Tecmo launching Nioh on Steam, PC users also have the right to expect someday they will consider bringing both of these classic hack-and-slash games to PC.
MechAssault 1 and MechAssault 2: Lone Wolf
Once the cult hit of Microsoft and Xbox, it was a pity that MechAssault was not developed. As a series of games specializing in great battles between giant machines, MechAssault brings epic campaign play and fiery multiplayer matches. The game has built a loyal and devoted fan community on the Xbox. Fans have been continuously appealing for a right third of the game or port the game to a PC where they will continue to live well for many more years. We hope that someday Microsoft will port games to PC to see their small potential.
