Minecraft Just Got Dethroned by High on Life!

If you're an avid gamer, chances are you've heard of High on Life by now. This wacky, quirky game has taken the gaming world by storm, dethroning heavyweights like Minecraft and Forza Horizon 5 to become the most popular game on Xbox Game Pass. But it's not just on Xbox where High on Life is making waves – it's also the seventh top-selling game on Steam!

So what's all the fuss about? Well, High on Life was inspired by the irreverent humor of Justin Roiland's Rick and Morty, and it definitely shows in the game. From unique ways to unlock achievements to references to other games, High on Life is a joyride of gaming fun. And if you're a fan of cult classic movies, you'll definitely want to check out the in-game feature that allows you to watch the entire Tammy and the T-Rex movie.

But it's not just the game's quirkiness that has made it a hit with players. High on Life has also proven to be a success on Game Pass, where players can enjoy it for no extra cost. This has led some fans to argue that the game's popularity is mostly confined to the Xbox ecosystem. However, its strong performance on Steam suggests that it has appeal beyond just the Xbox audience.

Despite a lukewarm critical reception, High on Life has clearly struck a chord with gamers. Its success is not just a win for the developers at Squanch Games, but also a boost for Xbox. Xbox has not released many big first-party games in 2023, and it made few announcements at The Game Awards 2022. High on Life's chart-topping performance shows that the platform is still capable of producing hits, even in a year with relatively few major releases.

So if you're looking for a fun and unique gaming experience, you'll definitely want to give High on Life a try. Whether you're a fan of Rick and Morty or just looking for something new to play, this game is sure to delight and entertain. And with its top spot on Xbox Game Pass and strong performance on Steam, it's clear that High on Life is here to stay. Don't miss out on the gaming sensation of the year.
