Apropos of nothing here's my list of games that should be backwards compatible sooner rather than later. For the sake of not only convenience but for these games to find a new audience as well. I want underrated games on the new system.
Platinum made a shooter? Yeah surprise surprise but not so much of a shock is that it fucking rules, the mechanic of sliding all over the map and shooting makes thing just chaotic enough that it works. My dream is that this game one day gets a sequel, with a multiplayer that would be balls out crazy. Think of how console shooters have gone in terms of mobility and speed, Vanquish was doing that in 2010.
2. LA Noire
I think this game holds up. It inherently has lesser replay value than a lot of games given the nature of the gameplay, if you know the form an investigation is going to take the second time you can go through the game easily there is no process of elimination. Having very recently played through it for the first time since when it came out in 2011, I was surprised at graphically the game holds up, and how incredible face teach on display still is.Microsoft recently cracked multi disc emulation, allowing games like LA Noire that were multiple discs to be backwards compatible, and Rockstar seems to be in the business lately of re-releasing old games on new platforms. The old GTA games and the Warriors just came out on PS4, and Red Dead made it to Xbox One, keep the ball rolling Rockstar! This game is underrated, and I think this game copped so much flak because people were expecting GTA: 1947, I know I did.
3. MGS HD edition
Yeah I'm not gonna plead to Konami for this, there's never going to be another Metal Gear that don't involve ball bearings and gambling but hey they seem to still like money so put this on backwards compatible already.
4. AFL Live
(If you aren't an Aussie just glaze over this entry)
This game isn't that good, but its fun and its all we have in terms of sports simulation for the greatest game on earth. I'm also acutely aware with the way video game development costs are sky rocketing and the cost of developing games in Australia that there probably won't be an AFL game released on the PS4 or Xbox One system. Give us this at the very least.
5. Uno with Kinect Support
You know it makes sense. Who doesn't want to see what's on offer in the living room of Uno players once more? Kinect needed a killer app its whole service life, why not give this a shot?
