Xbox One Backwards-Compatible Games

Since its inception, Microsoft?s Xbox One Backwards Compatibility system has added new games from the Xbox 360 per month. Here are some titles playable on the Xbox 360 that should be included in the Xbox One backwards-compatible games.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

As seen on the Xbox Feedback page, Activision?s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is currently at the top of the list of games that fans want to be added in the Xbox One backwards-compatible titles. Black Ops 2 is one of the famous Call of Duty entries that fans revisit because of its overall game balance. However, it?s currently suffering from slow online matchmaking issues as it is now considered by many as obsolete when compared with the current Black Ops 3, as pointed out in a general Call of Duty Reddit thread.

Its predecessor, Call of Duty: Black Ops, is currently ?in-progress? to become an Xbox One backwards-compatible game. This may further increase the chances of Black Ops 2 to be part of the list soon due to the amount of attention leaning toward first-person shooters in the Xbox Feedback poll. If it gets picked up by Microsoft, Black Ops 2 may once again receive a stable and populated platform on the Xbox One, and fans can enjoy it on stronger hardware.

Catherine

This Atlus puzzle game has so far garnered 6,548 votes on the Xbox Feedback poll. Catherine?s plot and puzzle-intensive gameplay preserves the game?s charm despite it being out of date. As for the graphics, it?s definitely focused more on detail as it shows polished, colorful and easily recognizable character models, although it obviously lacks traversable areas in-game. Overall, it?s a simple, straightforward game with multiple endings and puzzles that get more difficult as the player progresses.

L.A Noire

Selling almost five million copies during its prominence, as confirmed by Eurogamer, this was one of the best mystery games of the last generation. The game used body language in its suspect interview mini-games, successfully capturing the feel of a detective and cop theme in the 1950s US. However, this might be the first and last game of Team Bondi. The studio has a significant lack of official updates on their upcoming game, Whore of the Orient, and an L.A. Noire remaster is unlikely due to the developer?s inactive existence as of late. If it gets greenlit in the feedback poll for the Xbox backwards-compatible games, hopefully it will help the studio get significant press so that we?ll see another game with the quality of L.A Noire again.
