Big Xbox sales like this only come around once or twice a year. Even then, to include this many award-winning, critically acclaimed titles is something else. There’s a healthy selection with nearly something for every kind of player. Fighting games, adventure titles, RTS, artistic endeavors, horror, and even romance; it’s all here. Nearly every title has been outstanding in its field for one reason or another, hence the plethora of award-winning titles available.

The ID@Xbox program is one created by Microsoft for independent developers to self-publish their titles on Xbox and PC. The program was launched in 2014 and has been met with critical and commercial success. Developers that have worked with Microsoft have been impressed with the company’s responsiveness and support with issues that may be encountered. Since the program’s inception, dozens of studios and games have come to work with Microsoft to publish their games on the platform.

With something for everyone and prices likely as low as they’ll be for quite some time, now is the perfect time to stock up on hits and build a back catalog. Winter is rapidly approaching and there will be plenty of time spent indoors. That means there will be ample opportunity to delve into new adventures and find new favorites to play and talk about. And for gamers that have been interested in some recent hot titles, now is the perfect time to catch up and see what everyone has been talking about.
