The Best Xbox Minigames of All Time

The Best Xbox Minigames of All Time
Published by: forahobby on Monday, February 01, 2021
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox One,

In the early days of video games, developers had to contend with the small amounts of storage which were possible on game cartridges. The original Nintendo Game Boy had cartridges ranging from just 32 KB up to 8 MB while the Super Nintendo Entertainment System could (in theory) support cartridges of up to 128 MB in size. However, in practice only 117.75 MB was available, and most games could only use around 32-48 MB.

The Best Xbox Minigames of All Time

When you compare that to modern games, which can take up dozens or even hundreds of
gigabytes, you can see how little developers used to have to work with.

With so little storage space, video games had to be optimised over and over again, removing any unnecessary code, compressing images, and using other coding tricks to minimise their size. There was no room for anything other than the core game files, extra features, or bonus content.

That was until consoles started supporting optical media like CDs, DVDs, Blu-Ray, and the quirky proprietary GD-ROM that was used in the Sega Dreamcast. CDs came with 700 MB of storage, DVDs had more than 4 GB, and the Blu-Ray could store up to 50 GB.

The extra storage let developers for consoles like the Xbox create larger games and accompany them with minigames - smaller applications that used the same game assets but were separate from the main storyline.

These minigames are a fun way to take a break from the main missions or levels and add variety to the playing experience. Although they’re intended to be a side dish to accompany the game’s main course, some have been so popular that they’ve stolen the show.

Here are some of the best minigames made for Xbox consoles.

Video games have become not only a new century entertainment but also unexpectedly a solution for those who experience gambling problems and want to limit their harmful activity.

What Casino Themed Games You Can Play on Xbox Now

The Gamstop self-exclusion scheme is an excellent program for those who want or need to take a little time away from gambling for real money. The scheme is voluntary and is a great way for people to control their gambling and spending.

Being a part of the Gamstop cancel self-exclusion scheme doesn’t mean that you can’t have any fun though, and thanks to the rise of consoles and online gaming, there are now plenty of alternatives to real-money gambling that you can enjoy. These are also great ways of stopping yourself going on websites not on gamstop and potentially breaking your own self-exclusion.

The Xbox console released by Microsoft has a range of excellent casino and gambling style games that you can play that won’t cost you any real money outside of your initial purchase fee.

One of the great things about playing gambling games on Xbox is how much variety it offers players. It provides you with a totally different take on your typical casino experience and gives you more control over the kind of gambling experience you want to have. The following are some of the best Xbox gambling options you can play if you are looking to have a gambling style experience.

Rockstar leading the way



Rockstar is one of the most successful developers in the world, having developed several of the most financially and critically acclaimed titles of the century. Their trademark has become open-world adventures set in various genres and several of them have included gambling elements.

Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the company’s most successful titles, it can also be an excellent alternative for those on the gamstop cancel self-exclusion scheme.

Red Dead 2 features its very own mini-casino, and in there, you can play several games including poker and blackjack. The attention to detail in these classics is excellent and is a great substitute for online gambling.

There are also several mini-games that have a gambling element including five-finger fillet, and horseshoes, both of which are a lot of fun to play.
