Another round of Xbox 360 compatibility, my picks for the next wave

Microsoft announces a second wave of games added to backwards compatibility besides the few Games with Gold additions since the first wave was announced.  Here are the new titles

  • Braid
  • DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION
  • Doritos Crash Course
  • Fable III
  • Halo: Reach
  • Hydro Thunder
  • Iron Brigade
  • Kane & Lynch 2
  • Motocross Madness
  • MS.PAC-MAN
  • Peggle
  • Portal: Still Alive
  • Spelunky
  • Splosion Man
  • Ticket to Ride™
  • Zuma’s Revenge!

The list is still mostly indie or digital games with only a few AAA titles like Portal, Deus Ex, and Fable.  However, it is good that it continues to grow and their own announcement said hundreds more were coming.  With that said I hand pick my choices to fast track for compatibility.

  • Mass Effect 2-3 (The first game is already available)
  • Bioshock 1-3
  • Bulletstorm
  • Portal 2
  • Skyrim
  • Red Dead Redemption
  • Arkham City
  • Dead Rising
  • Crackdown
  • South Park - The Stick of Truth
  • Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
  • Mark of the Ninja
  • Half Life 2 Orange Box
  • Grand Theft Auto V

These are all classics from the 360 era and some of them have yet to have a next gen release to ease our pain if we miss playing them.  Personally, I miss Red Dead the most right now, and I never got to play the Undead Nightmare expansion.  Microsoft, lets make that happen.
