The list of Xbox One backwards compatible titles is growing substantially as we hea toward the holiday season. This month, Microsoft has added Limbo to the bunch. If you’re keeping count at home, that’s well over 200 Xbox 360 games that you can now play on your Xbox One. Wondering if your favorite has made the cut yet? Take a gander at the massive list of games that are now backwards compatible (via Major Nelson):
For those that may have lapsed for a generation of gaming, backwards compatibility sure makes for a great way of catching up on franchises you have heard people fawn over for years. For one, all of the previous Gears of War games are playable on the Xbox One, and you’d be a fool not to play them before jumping into the latest in the series, Gears of War 4. And if you’re looking for something to hold you over until Red Dead Redemption 2 and Mass Effect: Andromeda finally hit the shelves, how about replaying Red Dead Redemption and Mass Effect?
Some other great experiences you should check out include the original Bayonetta (it’s wacky and glorious), the classic Sonic games, Fallout: New Vegas, and The Orange Box, which includes both Portal and Half-Life 2. Just as a reminder, if you own the Xbox 360 discs of compatible titles, all you have to do is insert it into the console. It’s as simple as that.
Are you making use of this nifty feature? Which games have you or will you be playing with the Xbox One backwards compatibility feature? Are there any other games you’re hoping get the BC treatment? Drop your thoughts into the comments section below.
