Finally got an Xbox One for Christmas, now I'm just torn between what game to start first. 


I've never played Halo before (mostly because I'm not too big on First Person shooters) But I've slowly been getting more into FPS games, plus It'd be fun Playing it with the AJSA once we inevitably support it  (so I'm not joining completely blind when I play MP)


Shadows of Mordor; Personally I've never been much of a fan of the old fantasy "Middle Earth" LOTR setting, but I've heard such great things about it, and it was on sale for $40, so I decided to give it a shot.


Assassin's Creed: Black Flag; Yeah, I ended up getting the Assassin's Creed bundle with Xbox in case you haven't figured it out yet. Again, I've never been a huge fan of the series. The only one I played was 3, which for the most part I enjoyed(mostly for the setting and story). I've also heard great things about the game, and I did really enjoy the ship combat in 3, so I think I'll give it a try eventually.


Assassin's Creed: Unity; Do I really need to say anything?  I've heard nothing but bad things about this game. I doubt anyone's going to suggest I start with this. Honestly, I probably won't even both downloading it. 


Thanks everyone for your input, and I can't wait to see you online in the future!

Welcome to the xbox one ranks!

Well you basically have 3 assassins creed games and one fps as shadow of mordor is somewhat similar to AC but with the batman arkham combat and amazing kill animations in middle earth setting. Also the nemesis system is super cool.

As for what to start with first? Entirely up to you but be warned halo has an 18gb patch you need to download after you install it. So if you want to play one quick, go for black flag or shadow of mordor.

I would also recommend downloading the free version of killer instinct to give it a try.

I'd say Halo personally, but do make sure to check out the free to play options of the console as well such as Killer Instinct and Warframe!

I vote AC Black Flag. Second best game of last year according to Joe and easily my favorite of the AC franchise

Hmm, out of your choice's I would recommend either Shadow of Mordor or HMCC. Also with the HMCC you can play in Xbox1 events with other members. 

For future purchases, I would recommend Destiny after Sept because then it will be the everything we were promised from launch, haha It only takes a year for that to happen. What a drag Bungie has become.
