The backwards compatibility craze isn’t yet over because more games are being added to the Xbox One. The latest video game to be added is no other than Fallout: New Vegas. Yes, while most Fallout players are busy building their villages in Fallout 4, this is still big news for everyone else .

When Fallout: New Vegas was released on the Xbox 360, it came with a mountain of bugs — nothing surprising seeing as Bethesda games are known for being buggy in their first few months after launch. However, New Vegas got a lot of heat from critics because Fallout 3, despite having bugs itself, was not as bad as this.

New Vegas also lacked the freedom of exploration Fallout 3 had. The design goal here was to give players a game where they can bask in human interaction and communication, but gamers didn’t care: they wanted exploration.

Since then, a lot of work was put into the game and these days it is seen as the best Fallout game ever created. We could even go out on a limb here and say it’s better than Fallout 4. The reason for this is because it tells a much better story, and that has a lot to do with the limited exploration. We hope to see the rise of another Fallout game similar to Fallout: New Vegas in the future, but we’re not holding our breath for that to happen.

What about other backwards compatible games? The list is as follows: I Am Alive, Crystal Quest, Comic Jumper, Red Faction Battlegrounds, Joe Danger, Chronicles of Mystara, and Blood Knights. Outside of Fallout: New Vegas, we want to play Joe Danger all over again. It was a great game on the Xbox 360 and will also be a great game on the Xbox One. I Am Alive, before it was released, showed potential but everything turned to dust after the game hit store shelves. Visit the official website of Major Nelson to get the full rundown.

Want more backward compatible games? You’re in luck because an influx of Xbox 360 games recently hit the store and we expect things to only get better. Furthermore, Saints Row 4 is also on the list and looking as good fine as expected.
