Recently, Microsoft released their up to date list of 130 Xbox 360 games which are backwards compatible on the Xbox One. While not all are gems, there are a few worth giving another spin.
Assassin’s Creed II
There’s a reason Assassin’s Creed II was so beloved and well received. Besides the dense story, lovable protagonist and many, many secrets to be found, gameplay was addicting and simple compared to muckier sequels.
Besides its time manipulation mechanic making it an innovative platformer, Braid takes a story twist on the original Super Mario and explores the human condition. Dense and challenging.
The along award sequel to the original Fable delivered on many of the promises the first game failed to deliver, as well as corrected some of the previous entry’s follies. The combat mechanics are also still devilishly fun.
Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga
Sure you can get Lego Star Wars on your mobile device nowadays, but why not experience the original Lego game the way it was meant to be on a full console?
While the original Mass Effect may look a little flawed compared to the epic Mass Effect II, the original still holds up unbelievably well and is as enjoyable an experience as ever.
South Park: The Stick of Truth
South Park’s take on a Final Fantasy style turned-based RPG is not only insanely faithful to the show, but also a legitimately dense and engaging RPG, while retaining it’s mantel of supreme parody.
With the release of Fallout 4, you may wonder why you’d want to revisit the less refined Capital Wasteland of Fallout 3. While you may not want to sink another 100 hours into Fallout 3, rest assured the main story quest is still engaging enough to merit a do-over.
