You may not have a PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch in your house, but if you have the current-gen Apple TV hooked up to your screen, then you really do have a game console ready and waiting to entertain. Just as the Apple TV runs an array of apps, it also offers a pretty sizable selection of games—some of which are even free.
Some of these might be games that you already enjoy on your iPhone or iPad, but they’re either just as good or even better blown up on your TV. Most will also be free downloads on Apple TV if you own the iOS version. In any case, whether you’re already familiar with them or not, these are our picks for the 20 best Apple TV games you can play today. Grab your Siri Remote and get your game on.
(Note: Nearly all of these games are playable with the Siri Remote, but some may require a special peripheral or a dedicated gamepad (as noted), or are improved by a gamepad. If you’re looking for an Apple TV-compatible gamepad, then we have recommendations there, too.)
