Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (Xbox One)

This is a popular one and has been a gamers favorite for a while now. But if you’ve never played or heard of the action-adventure stealth video game, this one is developed by Kojima Productions and published by Konami Corp (ADR) (OTCMKTS:KNMCY). The game is part of the prequels in the Metal Gear series, taking place MGSafter Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Ground Zeroes stands alone as the first part of Metal Gear Solid V, serving as the prologue for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which is set to come out September 1, 2015.

In this one, players control Snake through the game map and attempt to complete missions while avoiding being spotted by the enemy. The game received positive reviews but was criticized for its length, some even labeled it a demo. The $40 price was also a big problem for some since you can beat it in just a few hours.
