The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are finally upon us. But once you're done with the unboxing, the mandatory day-one updates, and teaching Kinect to detect your skeleton, there are some important decisions to make. While many of the new consoles’ biggest selling points are features that have nothing to do with with gaming, they’re still primarily game machines, so you're going to want something to play. We're here to help.

Console launch lineups are notoriously bad, and this generation isn't all that different. There aren’t many games available for either console just yet, and a good majority of those that are out are either terrible or just plain forgettable. Don't let that fool you into thinking there's nothing to play, though: as long as you know where to look, there are great gaming experiences to kick off your new life in the next generation. Here are the best.
