Darksiders III was followed by a spin-off Darksiders Genesis. It is the only game in the series to release after a long hiatus and also featured some post-launch DLCs.

Yooka-Laylee was the spiritual successor to Banjo and Kazooie. It was developed by former Rare developers who formed a new studio, Playtonic. While the game didn’t manage to garner as much success, it still received a small sequel that changed direction to a side-scrolling platformer with a lesser budget.

If you still own an Xbox 360, you can avail Lost Planet 3 and Garou: Mark of the Wolves. These will be playable on the Xbox One and Series through backward compatibility. Garou, in particular, is an excellent fighting game so it shouldn’t be missed.
