Let's be honest: the Xbox One's exclusive lineup wasn't all that great last year.

That's not to say that the Xbox One was completely devoid of good games last year: Rise of the Tomb Raider is a near-perfect example of how to create a modern-day adventure game, and Halo 5: Guardians managed to get the system's biggest series back on track. Unfortunately, that's about it: Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is an HD remake, and while Forza is a great franchise, it's not exactly a system-seller.

... but that's all in the past. It's 2016 now, and the first big games of the year are just a few weeks away from release — and Microsoft wants you to know just how many triple-A titles are set to hit the Xbox One later this year. It's not just about the company's console exclusives, either: Microsoft really, really wants you to know that just about every major game of 2016 is coming to the Xbox One...

In all honesty, Microsoft's 2016 lineup already looks better than last year's. There are a bunch of "traditional" Xbox games, like Gears of War 4 and Crackdown 3, but there's also a big focus on variety and new IPs. Titles like Scalebound and ReCore are vastly different from the sort of titles that are usually associated with the Xbox One, and could really help round out the console's shooter-heavy library — and, if Sea of Thieves can come through on just half of the promises that Rare has made, it could be the pirate simulator of which gamers have been dreaming.

After that, it's mostly third-party titles: while games like The Division and Mirror's Edge: Catalyst are getting ready to launch on Xbox One (and look fantastic), they'll be headed to Sony's platform as well ...

The first big Xbox One exclusive of 2016, Quantum Break, is set to hit on April 5.
