The Best Xbox One Digital Games For Under $20

Before you know it, its going to be Christmas! Its always a good idea to look out for sales even when its not a Holiday, but considering its pretty close to December (already!) you might as well check out these Xbox One digital games for under $20. There are a LOT of games. So I will show you a few of the best ones and then give you a link so you can browse yourself.


– Cuphead is a classic run and gun action game heavily focused on boss battles. Inspired by cartoons of the 1930s, the visuals and audio are painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era, i.e. traditional hand drawn cel animation, watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings. The ONLY reason Cuphead is on the Xbox One digital games for under $20 list is because I believe it was released for $20 so its just an inexpensive game, not a game on sale.

Sonic Mania

– Experience the ultimate celebration of past and future in Sonic Mania, an all-new 2D Sonic adventure running at a crisp 60FPS with stunning HD retro-style graphics. Multiple playable characters give you the ability to go explosively fast as Sonic, soar as Tails, or power through tough obstacles with Knuckles’ brute strength.
