    Unhappy Xbox One backwards compatibility program

    I own both an Xbox 360 and an Xbox One. I of course was quite thrilled when I heard the news about the backwards compatibility program and the initial release of 104 games. However, progress since then has been quite sporadic and very incremental, focusing mainly on Xbox Live titles rather than console mainstays. In addition, the virtually no progress made on certain games pre-announced to be in the program (BioShock series, Skate 3, Dead Space), is also infuriating, especially considering that the feedback area of the Xbox site still lists these as forthcoming, even in spite of developments like BioShock The Collection. Anyways, the point I'm making is that I'm sure many of us who use Xbox share the same frustrations.

    This is the list of games (based on my own collection) that I'd like to be made compatible.

    -Quake II
    -Quake 4
    -Prey (2006)
    -Serious Sam 3: BFE
    -Serious Sam First Encounter HD
    -Serious Sam Second Encounter HD
    -Far Cry Classic
    -Far Cry 2
    -Far Cry 3
    -GoldenEye 007: Reloaded
    -Call of Duty Classic
    -Call of Duty 3
    -Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
    -Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
    -Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
    -Call of Duty: World at War
    -Call of Duty: Black Ops II
    -Call of Duty: Ghosts
    -Battlefield 2: Modern Combat
    -Battlefield: Bad Company
    -Battlefield: Bad Company 2
    -Battlefield 3
    -Battlefield 4
    -Medal of Honor Airborne
    -Medal of Honor (2010)
    -Medal of Honor Warfighter
    -Frontlines: Fuel of War
    -Homefront
    -Duke Nukem 3D
    -Duke Nukem Forever
    -Wolfenstein (2009)
    -Borderlands 2
    -Borderlands The Pre-Sequel!
    -Aliens vs Predator (2010)
    -Aliens: Colonial Marines (I know the game is an absolute clusterfuck, but I want it compatible for the trainwreck effect and to form a completionist set with AvP 2010 and my Xbox One copy of Alien: Isolation)
    -Peter Jackson's King Kong
    -BioShock
    -BioShock 2
    -BioShock Infinite
    -Assassin's Creed Brotherhood
    -Assassin's Creed Revelations
    -Assassin's Creed III
    -Assassin's Creed Liberation HD
    -Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
    -Assassin's Creed Rogue
    -The Simpsons Game

    Honestly?

    Ditch the fucking Xbox and go get a Playstation.

    I've had both, there is just no comparison.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Hurricane Halen - Let's all gingery touch our sword tips!!!

    DONATE TO THE LINKS YA CHEAP BASTARDS!!!!

    My mother in law bought me an Xbox One a few months ago for the HD Skype through Kinect--she wants to see the grandkids on the big screen. The list of games that are backwards compatible are laughable. Half of them are indie games that you could probably play on iPhone.

    I've still got my 360, but for those that traded in their 360 to get an Xbox One, they are shit out of luck.

    What's even more infuriating is that after 2K stopped making baseball games, the Xbox doesn't even have a true baseball game. That is unless you count the joke of RBI Baseball which is an arcade game.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    My kids still actually have a PS2 and a Wii hooked up for backwards compatibility....lol.. Some of those old games are still fun. I still kept MLB The Show 2006 so I can hit with a ROIDED up Barry Bonds.

    They still like the Xbox360 a lot (COD, MoH, Battlefield, GTA, rockband), so we will keep that one for a while also.

    With youth sports (baseball, hockey, soccer) we honestly don't spend a whole lot of time with video games.
