PSA: These Games Run at 120 Frames Per Second on Xbox Series X

One of the more noticeable features of the Xbox Series X console is how smooth the games run compared to older generation consoles. The big reason for this is the high framerates, whether the games received native versions on Series X or the Framerate Boost feature. Xbox’s goal has been to let players play their old games and play them better.

If you’re new to the Xbox ecosystem or are learning about framerates for the first time, below is a list of games that run at 120 frames per second for that silky smooth gameplay on Xbox Series X and boosted games up to 120 frames a second on Xbox Series S.
