Are there Xbox One games similar to Jack and Daxter?

by anonymouseredditor53. Posted on Jul 14, 2020    1    10

For context, I’m 22. I had a PlayStation 2 when I was maybe 8 or 10 years old. I used to love playing adventure games like Jack and Daxter. I eventually got an Xbox 360, played some CoD MW 1 and 2 and a little bit of Need for Speed (Most wanted and Carbon) but then haven’t really gamed at all for the past 5-8 years. I’m not really a gamer at all.

So yesterday I impulsively bought an Xbox One from a mate of mine because I kinda just wanna have it to play from time to time. I’m not phased about online gaming or investing a ton of time in it, but for the nostalgia factor, I was wondering if there are cool adventure games similar to the Jack and Daxter I used to play as a kid?

Thanks in advance.

Bought a game for the kid a few weeks ago called "Skylar & Plux" when it was on sale for like $5.

I haven't played it but it looked kinda like a Jack Daxter / Ratchet Clank type game.

jak and daxter the game i loved to hate lol, always preferred ratchet and clank, hated the lava levels on jak and daxter and that god awful jumping urgh, anyways platformer adventurer games is what you want so il list a few from the top of my head, as some have said gamepass has quite a selection of games and well worth it , i believe rare replay is on there which is right up your alley has 2 or 3 banjo games on there, kameo - loved this gmae when it launched, conkers bad fur day - amazing, and a couple of others on there like jet force gemeni


as for more modern takes theres yooka laylee or however its spelled , spyro re-ignited trilogy, crash bandicoot collection , super luckys tale, thres plenty out there tbf, spyro being one of my favs currently

Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie have the same approach of collecting things and worlds unlocking as you go through.

I can see someone talking to you about gamepass in the thread, just adding that it is a very good purchase.
